As we were rubbing her we started to find little wood ticks, about 20. I Ivomec dewormed the others yesterday but couldn't get her done but will have to quick like. we usually find the ticks in the spring but were sure surprised to find them now.

Those Chinese Beetles really suck. We get them in the house by the hundreds. Especially when it gets nice. It seems they just come out of hiding, then die. I hate Iowa.
