Found a tick on The Mustang - ick. Had to pluck it off with my bare hands. The Mustang seemed thankful until I made her ride in the arena. She DOES NOT like the piglets that have set up shop next to the far corner of the arena. However, the peacock who came wandering along really woke her up. The weather was nice enough to save the raindrops until I had finished. Poor Mustang is in a new paddock next to some real booty nippers. She is not pleased. Makes getting her in and out of there a literal pain in the ass.
