OK, well it's not full on us yet, but we have started seeing those nasty flies on occasion here in our area.

Well, if your barn is anything like ours, it's been a very strange winter. Just when we thought, maybe, winter was over, the temperature dropped and the wind picked up, and the blankets went back on.
