Okay so I haven’t done a product review in a little while, so here’s this.
Brown Listerine.
So if anyone has ever had to deal with bot fly eggs, fungus, rain rot, etc: say hello to your new Jesus. 
My trainer told me about this little trick of the trade years ago, and ever since then, it’s all I use. Put this stuff in an empty spray bottle or pour some on a sponge, and rub it wherever the fungus/rot/bot fly eggs are. I mean when you think about it: listerine kills bacteria. What is fungus and rain rot? Bacteria. Gideon used to get fungus on the front of his back legs, normally from grazing in a paddock. I haven’t bought actually fungus remover in probably 4 years, thanks to this stuff. I use it as a part of our normal grooming routine- usually spray it on his legs, underbelly, and the top of his tail/butt, the normal places where fungus would grow. Ever since then, he hasn’t gotten fungus once. 
The plus side to this stuff, you can literally buy it at any supermarket or convenience store, and it’s no more than like $8 for 1/2 a gallon of it. 
I’d highly recommend trying it for any horse that gets reoccurring fungus or rain rot. Check out my Product Review tab for more tips and reviews about the products that I use.

Hey, as a science major I’d just like to point out that fungi and bacteria are two very different things! For starters, bacteria are prokaryotes and fungi are eukaryotes (humans are also eukaryotes). That being said, the things that kill fungi and bacteria are also different! (Mushrooms are a fungi, for example, and they aren’t a plant, but they’re definitely separate from animals, bacteria, and archaea!)
That isn’t to say that listerine can’t kill fungi (it totally can, according to most sources I’ve seen!!) just that this is a very common misunderstanding of how bacterial/fungal infections work and I like to help explain it when I see it.

Oh god and let’s not forget about my grades.

Their sinking fast. I really need to get my head straight and be a little more focused in everything I do.

Thank you!!! I wish I could say the same. I second guess things way too much. especially myself. Oh well. we will just see what the weekend holds.

Haha yes I definitely do worry too much. I’m a worry wart. I’m known for it. I can’t help it most of the time 馃槙


I’m actually really really nervous about Summer Finals.

Because it’s going to be Paris and I’s last big rodeo weekend before I go to college. And I just really wanna do good but third barrel has been consistently wide coming out and I can never seem to fix it 馃槱


My life has only one big question.

Which knee am I icing tonight?


Ready to go.

Ready to go.

It’s actually been a fairly productive day except I didn’t finish AP Physics C problems because I don’t get them and didn’t fill out a scholarship….I’m gonna put it off till Friday which I have off of work and school.

Riding.
Getting my nails done.

This horse is hilarious but I would be terrified to start jumping her under saddle because she seems to think that there is no such thing as a jump under 4 ft
