So in one day, we found 5 ticks on the neck of one of the lambs we were lambsitting.

We saved them all in ziplock baggies for some reason, maybe just to really drive it home. So that means that we have like an infestation of ticks on the side of our yard. NASTINESS! Never come to my house, or you might get a giant tick on you. And they aren't even that small. The biggest one is about the size of a fly. YUCK. Add it to the list of my unfavorite things for the house.
You'll only see 4, but that's because they keep attacking one of them, therefore, they are 1 together in that puff of lamb's wool on the left.
Here's the puff up close and personal. Enjoy.
We got out our Eyeclops (click for details) to magnify them later that night. It was GROSS.
And to add to the list again, we found out that we have an upflow furnace, that has been turned upside down to make a downflow. Yay! At least at this point, we're not shocked, surprised or horrified at news like that anymore. We have thick skins. (Thus better to keep ticks away)
