Busy day and an early start!
Any special concoction for treating the horses for flies? I've had luck with this....
Tire Green Product Blue Automotive tire


Use it on the Horses and myself! A little goes a long ways.

I also use a product called SWAT. Seems to work well and it is medicated as well.
I installed a Conk automatic sprayer in the barn, but the $100.00 + unit only lasted a year! And I can't see that timed mist being good for anything or anyone!
I've even tried stockings on the donkey's! Works, but it looks bad!

I use a pair of gloves and wipe on a 1:100 mixture of pyrethrum because ...
wait for it.....
wait for it ....
neither of the horses will stand still for a sprayer.
Big babies.
I even bribe them with sweet oats, cattle cubes, apple chunks... nada.
The older gal (Lady) gives me the stink eye and makes a fuss.
The younger gal (Lexie) tolerates it better, but eventually backs away.
So, every time I go check them (every 2 days or so), I take some more liquid and a curry brush ...
then brush and wipe, brush and wipe.
I've inherited the two about 2 years ago, so they don't really trust me as well as their absentee owner.

I managed to get the carb nuts loose and the carb is now dangling beside the engine, because I am clueless and without proper documentation.
Apparently, I meant to get a manual but never ordered one before all this heart surgery happened.

What in the heck is the purpose of the long rod, threaded at both ends that is attached at the front of the tractor and on a bracket on the backside of the carb?

It would really have been much easier to get this thing loose if I had realized I was fighting a seized up rod on a hidden bracket.

Were they afraid the carb would spontaneously fling itself from the tractor? (just a joke)

Apparently, I've run into the 'what is a governor' ignorance on my part.

Found this interesting solution:

We have used Bronco Gold for years and it seems to do a really good job overall and it make them look good as well.....They get it twice a day at feeding times......
