Horse flies were nuts today! No sign of them when I first went out, within 4min, they were attacking the gelding and he spooked. Saddle shifted, but stayed on until he stopped and was calm. Hopped off to fix the saddle. Continued attempting the walk for 12min and then hopped off. No bugs, yay. Then had him lunge at a walk with some pool noodles. At the end of it, the flies came back...ugh. They freaked him out and one even got me! Walking out of the pen, horse fly came back to snack on the gelding, was able to kill that one! Got both spooks on camera. Otherwise, a good day.
