Ticks… Yuck

Last weekend on the long outride we went on, Mark noticed that there was a huge tick under Amber’s tail 🙁 I got off to pull it off.. Mark had to get off too to hold her still.. It was huge – disgusting – and disturbing… The grooms should be checking her for things like this… Am I right or wrong? Anyway I ended up pulling off four or five.. Funnily enough she stood nicely for me and let me do it… We then carried got back on and carried on riding..

This weekend I checked her for ticks while I was tacking her up.. Did not find any when I checked which was comforting.
