I don't mind spider's when they're not on me. I won't go out of my way to kill them or even kill them if they're wandering through. When they're on me or something I'm holding I go into survivalist mode and it's either the spider or me.
I have to agree about roaches. They're the only thing worse than bees and spiders in my books. I don't think we've got flying roaches up here, and I don't want to know if we do because I'd give up trail riding is I had to deal with spiders and roaches.

Show me a horseman who hasn't fallen and I'll show you a man who has never truly ridden.

Bloo, you might want to stay up north. I can't remember going on a trail ride except in winter when we didn't get a spider or two in our hair.

It is really shocking to be hit in the face with a massive web from a wolf spider. They spin webs 10' high.

I see flying roaches too. Horrible big flying roaches.

Save yourself Bloo, stay up north!

I really haven't had a lot of roaches fly by out on the trail. They are pretty bad about waiting for you at the barn or worse yet, getting in the house.

At least I don't need to shovel snow in the winter.

You're right Celeste, they mainly are out at night, so I tend to see them at the barn...I jump out of my skin when I see them though! Repulsive critters!

ugh...hate roaches. So glad that at the barn it is uber clean so we don't have roaches or rodents. There is an automatic fly spray system and the barn staff keep the poop picked up in the front barns/paddocks. Sure makes a difference in the critters!!

Tell you what: I'll gladly trade your spiders for the deer flies we've been getting around here this year. Yeah, even if you throw in a few roaches.

Sorry James...we have those nasty deer flies here if you are talking about those kinda yellow jet fighter looking flies. OMG I ran into a bunch of them last year and they were swarming Biscuit. Those rascals hurt when they bite!

I actually rarely see any barn roaches since we got this "bug patrol". The rooster eats all kind of bugs.

Glad to hear of your riding adventures w/Biscuit now that you are back to riding. Sounds like it is helping w/the PT and of course the mental help is a given.
