Thank you, Storm is a cutie, looks innocent, huh? lol (as he grabbed one of my pillows, just now, and took off with it, lol).
We don't get Lymn disease, thank goodness, although we do have a lot of deer. I'm glad you are alright with ticks where you are, Diane. I guess it's because we are out of drought here, that the ticks are thriving.
One of my horses stood at my door for hours a few months ago (rather than the other horse who came inside, lol). I kept feeding Mokie, patting him, brushing him, not knowing what he was trying to say..... Then I figured it out, I went right over him, and he had a tick hidden where it really hurt! I've never seen it like this.
