Ever thing about getting rid of the "petting zoo"? Probably have a lot less exposure to nasty things that bite, i.e. ticks, fleas... Not that your geese and goat are nasty, although I bet they do "bite" on occassion. I don't get how you can take care of all those animals. I'm lucky if I can clean up after my cats. Sorry about the Lymes.
This blasted post had me dreaming about ticks all night. I actually pulled a tick off a neighbor's dog's ear the other day, so now I'm thinking about then all the time. Worst part...the nightmares gave me a migraine, so I woke up in misery. Maybe it was a sympathy migraine for those of you dealing with Lyme's disease. At least I could get a pain shot and feel a little bit better.
The brain certainly does weird things...
