You're right I shouldn't make a blanket statement - all the drafts I get are ruined by them, but that's probably why they're in the auctions. But they're also the leading producers of puppy mills which makes me pretty ticked.

Anyway I rant ^^

Yes, teaching them to yield their hind end is very important, especially when they have issues like that - I personally teach my horses to yield every part of their body to maintain proper personal space. Good luck!

Darrin- Well, I saw that the OP was form "Down South" and I'm in Maryland. This year has been HORRIBLE for ticks. At least 3 horse from my barn had it as well as the BO and my dad. The winter wasn't cold enough to kill most of them this year. I guess I can see how you wouldn't have many ticks in Oregon, though :)

Ashsunnyeventer- The ticks aren't "horrible" right now, but they are definitely showing their presence, as well as the mosquitoes, house flies, and horse flies -.-

Ah, I have sympathy for your husband, haha. I've found one on my dog and one on a friend of mine but that's it.

When we help gather cattle in a big brushy pasture it is not unusual to pick off a dozen of them when we get home. I try to remember to spray my shirt, jeans and feet with horse fly spray before going out and that sure helps. We are probably immune to about everything. All of the people I have known getting Lymes or Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever have all been 'city people' and probably had no immunity to anything like this.

Oh man I couldn't imagine! I will have to remember to spray myself down the next time I go out to ride.

Cherie - funny you say that - I've had more than a few dozen ticks myself with nothing. We noticed that each of our horses during the worst of the tick seasons whoever hadn't gotten it already gets a horrible fever for about 1 week - then they're perfectly fine and only our TB ever got it twice. We're sure it's from the ticks - but we don't vaccinate the horses for anything but rabies, they never leave the property and don't have to worry about most things. But despite all their and our ticks the worst we've ever gotten was a short fever xD

While all my friends who are 'city people' have gotten some form of lyme or another from ticks xD
