the weanling...

The weanling has been coming more frequent into the yard to nibble on the hay. She has been sleeping along the bush line in the U-shaped field just North of the house.
Frank chased her away last night when he was out feeding the livestock.

The lack of hair on the weanling's neck, shoulders, and brisket, is an indication of a tick infestation.

I've been told, that the moose go 'swimming' in water in the Spring to help remove the ticks.

Bit right now, there is no open water in the muskegs.

We think she might die due to her 'ticky' body.
