Re: [RC] advice needed - rides2far

I bought this stick with about 18 inches of horse hair on the 
end. I 
just swing it to get ride of the flies pretty much how you use you 

Heck, with my arm length, I couldn't even reach their ears with that
thing, much less their underbelly! Then there's the ones that land on the
tail bone and burrow. We sound like fighter pilots going down the trail.
"RIGHT HIP!"  "IN HIS TAIL" "ON YOUR BACK!"  Yes, the B-1 bomber
horseflies are slow, but they're so loud they induce a bit of panic in
the horse since he knows it's there so that adds a little excitement to
the chase. The smaller greenhead ones require Ninja type skills. Josie is
now catching those out of the air and says she plans to be able to catch
them with chopsticks someday. :-)  If you find yourself in the woods with
deerflies attacking your horse's ears you can take a clump of leaves off
a tree and slip it into the crownpiece of  your horse's bridle. It will
keep them off but you look kinda stupid.
