Ewe Bots....

Ewe!  Bots eggs on ma ponay!!  I haven't seen that before, perhaps the warm and wet summer we've had has made them more prevalent.  I don't have a bot knife so borrowed a pumice stone from M at the barn.  Then I sprayed and whiped tons of bug away stuff on her legs.  Poor baby!  

I know it's not a big deal, remove the eggs and her fall worming treatment will be fine for killing any she ingested plus tapeworms but still.....YUCK!

I rode for a bit today doing some bending and lots of turns in circles, serpentines,...the usual.  First time we've been in the arena at the new barn.  It's not a cushy as KCRC but this winter I'm sure I can haul to KCRC on the weekends if I want to work on anything needing more cushion or the obstacles.

M came by after leading her horse by the neighboring high school and all it's activities.  I know we'll get a ride in some time together, I like her a lot.

Still been working on the trailer.  Hoping to get the wiring done this weekend so we can bring it to the barn for my storage use.

Shy had some bot eggs on her. I got rid of them, plus super fly sprayed her legs down. Then she got her wormer (it was time anyway).

Gosh, I haven't seen bots in years! Thanks for the heads-up, I'll keep a good eye on the boys.
