. I am so happy your son is improving:)
There's a fly spray called "EcoVet that is getting rave reviews. It's all natural and everyone claims it stinks to high heaven --- one person likened it to burning crayons, lollol
It's not cheap ---- around $26 for an 18 oz bottle or $140.00 for a gallon.
It works on the premise of the smell confusing flies and mosquitoes to the point they don't land on the horse and allegedly some die. Reviews are varied, depending on fly and skeeter population.
My big issue is those black horse flies and I'm starting to see some with white stripes on them --- what's that about? Anyway, I think I'm going to order a bottle to see how it works.
, a long time friend bought a younger (under ten) Paso Fino a few years back when she though her Spotted Walker might not be rideable. Rio-the-Paso is a little (13.3) firecracker, lol
She has ridden and re schooled horses her entire life. She is now 68 and wondering why she "bought the little booger", lollo
He is broke to ride and drive.
He doesn't rear or buck but she has a time with him, lollol. He's a pip with the their farrier and she works with him all the time. He's one of those horses that stands good for her to work on his hooves but does a lot of fidgeting when the farrier shows up.
His latest incident was that he somehow managed to buck up and get his leg over the stall door. He was walking around when she got to the barn but it didn't take much to match up the cut on the leg to the stall door --- something she's trying to figure out how his short self managed that.
Her other Paso was with her 20+ years and was a dollface, calm and well mannered. She lost him to Cushings.
Anyway, Pasos in general seem to be on hyper side and maybe these younger ones were bred hotter yet? Phantom,
. Are those Tiger Lilies? I had planted some where Sultan is laid to rest but only two of them took root. If I want anything planted, DH has to do the planting because I kill Chia Pets:icon_rolle
FWIW, I used to feed my Rott and Lab/Sharpei "Dinovite". It got rid of their skin allergies and stopped the Rotts digestive issues. Not cheap but it works.
Heat/humidity is awful:(. I've been turning the horses out a lot earlier because they are back in the barn by 10:30 or 11:00 to stand in front of their barrel fans. The fans are pushing hot air but it's better than no air, or scorching sun and flies. I am almost worthless in this heat; it took me three hours this morning to wash both horses legs, brush them, wipe their faces and butts, put their fly masks on, then clean their stalls ------ three hours to do stuff for two horses ---- I took a lot of breaks in front of those barrel fans----------
