Haha!  I don't normally post stuff like this, but I saw it on Facebook and couldn't resist!  :D  It reminds me of Chrome when he's scratching himself, bending in all of those different positions.  Obviously he's never knocked me down, but the expression on the cartoon horse is adorable!  :)

Just so this isn't off topic, here is Chrome scratching.  Do you think he'll have any trouble learning to bend?  Hehe!

He also found out where I keep the feed.  Here is his hopeful, "Are you gonna feed me?" look!  So cute!

 And one of him grazing out in our yard (which is fully fenced).  The white on his leg is diaper rash ointment for his itchy spots.  Oh and those vines behind him are our grapes!!!  We are going to have hundreds this year!  Oh and the little tree beside him is our cherry tree.  He started to use it as a scratching post, but I yelled at him and he stopped lol.

I think the neem oil is already making him feel better.  Since he only has one sore on his shoulder right now I'll be curious to see if it can keep him from breaking out in full blown sweet itch this year.  Fingers crossed!  That will be the true test.  I also made some fly spray out of Avon Skin So Soft, Vinegar and water.  It's working pretty well so far, although I have to be careful about using it on sunny days since it's an oil it can burn.  I'm going to put Citronella oil in it next time.  :D  I'll let you know how it works.


  1. This is positively adorable.

  2. Okay, don't know how to say this without sounding like a know it all, but an FYI in case you don't know...grapes are totally deadly to dogs. I had no idea until a friends dog died from eating them....since I had no idea I wanted to spread the word to save futur dogs!

  3. Marissa, LOL! You don't sound like a know it all! I do know about the dangers of grapes (and raisins and onions and chocolate and garlic, etc.). Thank you for your concern! I really appreciate it. :D

    Dom, I totally have to agree with you on that. :D

  4. I started Baron on something called Stop Itch this year - it is all natural and smells pretty much like the inside of your spice cabinet. He is still getting pestered by flies, but they don't drive him crazy with the need to itch anymore. Last year he was had sores on his face, neck, both shoulders and legs. This year he has a few spots on his muzzle - such an improvement.


  5. Oh wow really? Is Baron's sweet itch? Or some other insect? Where do you get the Stop Itch stuff? Chrome's is on his face, neck, shoulders and legs too so it sounds like the exact same issue. I would love to try that stuff. I'll try Googling it, but if you have a direct link I would love it. Thank you!!

  6. He's adorable and very bendy. Lied the cartoons too.
