Awareness of the outside world. I suspect the people who are getting their knickers in a twist over CRT (see yesterday) are conflating it with the 1619 Project.

My head-shy horse has no problem with a branch swishing around his ears.
Rodney’s neck is too long for me to reach forward to flick bugs off his ears. So I grabbed a branch. (Thank you, tree.) I thought I’d have to get him used to the idea. Nope. He was cool with it from the first swat. I can even whack his ears/poll/neck.
Anything in pursuit of deer flies, horse flies, and their bitey ilk.
Stay safe. Stay sane. Stay unbitten.
