Bot Fly Boogie

video
I dislike bot flies, actually I loathe them.  Small invading terrorists whose only pleasure in life is to disturb my peace!
In the past I have dealt with them doing what the SPS calls the "Bot Fly Boogie", no it has nothing to do with he of the spotty butt (however they could all bug him and I wuldn't care).  I trot around and around in circles until the fly is to dizzy to keep up with me anymore.  This has been a good tactic but with my lady love Little Sister needing me close it is one I am trying to avoid.  So this year I have tried playing dead.  Turns out the little pests don't care if you are a dead horse or not. I have tried rolling.  The persistent creatures just wait for me to stop. So I am back to the bot fly boogie.  I just try not to stray too far from my lady so she doesn't worry.  The things a royal horse does for love.

New love


I have a new lady love!  She is of royal decent with a very regal name.  All of us here call her Little Sister, she is a bit younger than me.  The SPS brought her home to retire, you see Little Sister is the daughter and mother of champions and now just needs to have peace and quiet.  She is almost completely blind in her left eye, so I walk along the fence with her to make sure she doesn't bump it.  I nicker to her sweetly to tell her how lovely she is.  Little Sister nickers sweetly back to tell me I am handsome.  We have a quiet, gentle love.  It is not like the "run the fences like a maniac" affairs I have had in the past.  She is a lady worthy of my regal attentions.
