Absorbine Giveaway! New UltraShield EX Continuous Spray

So before I tell you about my adventure of NOT getting to the show this weekend I wanted to start the week out with something good! I was contacted by Absorbine to run another contest and this one is a product that I know we all use…Fly Spray! I know I spend hundreds each year trying to keep Gen happy and fly free during the summer so I am sure that you all could use a free bottle of fly spray!

Absorbine is giving me the opportunity to give away some canisters of their UltraShield EX Continuous Spray fly spray. Haven’t heard of this? Well, it is their UltraShield EX fly spray, which you might recognize as the fly spray in the black bottle, but now it can be found in an easy to use continuous spray container! Cool right? I know that I am a big fan of the continuous spray products and have a bottle of continuous spray sunscreen on my desk in front of me as I write this. You can read all about it here and watch the cute video below (Side note: Gen wants to be a video model pony…he thinks that Liver Chestnut has the easiest gig ever).

So now I am sure that you are all dying to get your hands on some to try it out for yourself! I figured we would do a nice and easy contest this time around. Gen HATES bugs. Hates them! Few things can make my horse as miserable as getting a big old fly landing on his belly. I thought it might be fun to see if you could come up with other things that my Gennyral hates in addition to bugs (real or imagined). Long time readers, you all know that the list of things in life that my horse really hates  is very  long. For those of you new to my blog or who just don’t remember feel free to make stuff up, chances are…he probably does hate it (don’t put down Zombies though…Gen LOVES Zombies).

To enter the contest all you have to do is comment on the bottom of this post using a working e-mail address about one thing that you imagine my little princely pony HATES. 5 lucky winners will get their own bottle of Absorbine UltraShield Ex Continuous Soray Fly Spray! I will chose 4 at random from everyone that enters and will choose the most comical and humorous entry to get the 5th bottle. Contest ends on Wednesday at noon!

Good Luck! It should be pretty easy since Gen can be a total grump (in fact…I think added to the list of dislikes is that there is a contest about all the things he doesn’t like)

  1. Gen hates to be clean. He loves to be a dirty pony to drive his Mom crazy! Rolling is such fun! Especially after a bath. The look on Mom’s face is priceless!

  2. Oh the things this POOR boy does NOT like! One on the TOP of his list is RAIN! He HATES RAIN! Everything about it. He hates how it makes his paddocks wet and slippery. He might pull a muscle you know!? He doesn’t like getting his toes wet out there or mud on his legs! That mud makes his legs very itchy. He hates how the rain washes off his Absorbine bug sprays. Now those pesky flys are able to bite him all over and if HURTS his sensitive boy parts! He hats how the rain pounds down on his body like tiny little pebbles being dropped from the sky! He hates how the rain makes his water taste funny in his outside bucks. He hates how the rain messes up hay season. He just wants his fresh GREEN hay when he wants it! Poor Gen does not like the rain, he likes a gentle mist on his face.

  3. 5: man eating bugs also mistaken for birds tell they land and bit you.
    4: people that don’t like horses.. Come on who can hate a face like that?
    3: the dreaded spooky rock!! It’s allways been there, but there’s that ONE day that it just might grow legs and chase the horse down and eat them!
    2: The water hose snake. It hisses and spits water at you and loves to wrap itself around your legs. Tends to come out on the days you think it’s warm enough for a bath. But come to find it’s still to cold to be wet.
    1: The Treat Troll.. Sneaks in and stills all your beloved treats. Allways at the most crucial times. Like being attacked by the “Hose Snake” or being tricked by that rock that came out of no where:)

  4. I tried this at my last purchase and this is the first time that my TB mare has been truly comfortable. Coupled with your light mesh fly bonnet, she is now free to graze without all those bugs in her eyes and greenheads on her butt.
    Thanks Absorbine – this product really works.

  5. I believe he hates pegasus’ because he would much rather fly than to wear out all his energy on trying to get places to running!

  6. Hmm… I’m guessing Gen hates to be all dressed up in pink and braids then paraded around – tail braided, mane braided, pink glitter on his rump, a pink saddle pad, sparkly hoof paint and pink ribbons in his mane – voila! Instant pony hate 🙂 I know my gelding does!

  7. Miniature Ponies. They think they’re so cute… -_- Ok, They ARE pretty cute, but my pony had a MAJOR vendetta against ’em. Dunno why… I don’t think Gen’d be pleased with anything better looking than himself waltzing around 😉

  8. Hmm, I think the thing Gen hates most of all is when he thinks you’ve blown his cover. What – you didn’t know your horse is secretly a spy working under the code name Bond – Gens Bond? That whole I’m-a-retired-horse-who-loves-to-eat-treats-and-torment-my-mom-with-my-silliness thing is just a front. As soon as you flip the light switch when you leave the barn his stall transforms into his base of operations and he leaves to liberate carrots from their underground prisons and escort attractive mares to lavish dinner parties. 🙂

  9. Okay, there is this deer named Priscilla. He HATES her. She taunts him all of the time. “Na na, I can go where ever I want and you cant.” That’s one of the reasons he’s broken through his fence – so he could show her that he could go where he wants too!

  10. If the Gen is anything like my mare, he will hate: being woke up, being fussed over, hates being brushed except with one and only one brush, not a fan of having his hooves picked, stones hurt but hates to have his feet held up more but will deal. Hates baths, loves mud, you know they belive if totally covered in mud bugs can not bother them so there is no need for fly spray.Of couses hates to be sprayed with fly spray but hates bugs so bad will tollerate it with a huge amount of dancing until its done. My mare wont drink water unless it’s in a certian bucket, picky about hay and god forbid there is anythig but grain in the grain. Our list is long also, but come on their our horses they are entitled to have opinions, just don’t let my kids know it’s ok cause they never could 😉

  11. I think Gen hates his protective boots. And being clean. Being clean seems to be Gen’s most hated idea in the entire universe.

  12. Gen hates sharing attention, big nasty bugs, being clean & being stuck inside. It’s like I’m writing a reverse personal ad 🙂

  13. I do not like green flies and gnats,
    I do not like them on my cats.
    I do not like them in the barn,
    I do not like them on the farm.
    I do not like them in my stall,
    I do not like them, not at all.
    They make me itch and scratch all day,
    They bug me while I’m eating hay.
    They make me drop down with a thud,
    And roll around there in the mud.
    When I’m outside they follow me,
    So I run around, yelling “Let me be!”
    I do not like green flies and gnats,
    I do not like them, that is that.

    — “Green Flies and Gnats,” original poem by Gennyral

  14. Gen hates bugs….

    Shoo fly dont bother me,
    I dont want your company
    Shoo fly, dont bother me,
    For i belong to somebody

    Itchy, itchy, scratchy, scratchy,
    Ooh, I’ve got one down my backy!

    (God in his wisdom made a fly,
    But forgot to tell me why)

  15. Carpenter Bees. They tend to be big, bumbly and really curious about everything. So, if you’re a horse, out doing horsey things in your pasture, they need to “inspect” you and try to socialize. Then later, if you’re not so lucky, and are hanging out in your stall, they keep you awake all night by chewing loudly on wood!

  16. Gen HATES the idea that there’s anyone out there with the same name as his! He hates it when his fans, like me, read along on Facebook and get startled with the impostor General comes down with problems like hoof abscesses. He wants his fans to be focused on him and him only — and anyone taking that from him must be obliterated!!

  17. Gen does not like: medicine, baths, stall rest, grumpy horses, mismatching tack/wraps/saddle pads- he is the supreme commander of the fashion police, small children, saber tooth bunnies, copy-cats, bugs, being ignored, trailers/trailer rides, mean people, and not getting his hugs from his mom.

  18. He probably LOVES dinosaurs so im not going to say anything about them.I bet gen hates aliigonkeys!(its a mix between an alligator and a monkey)They jump around and poke horses in the cheek over and over again.

    She will be like you alligonkey quit pokin me!!
    and the allionkey would say no,no,no,no,no,no……….
    then all of a sudden hear comes a fly and oh no both of them hatte horse flys so the both screamm hug each other and run!now there sort of friend enemy!!:)))I<3HORSES!!!!!

    She probably also dosent like goats on walls or non-sparkley tack or shots or brown grass or bows or combs or running! I<3HORSES!!!!

  19. GENNYRAL, He is a horse of such character….
    He hates vets, as he gets to see them a lot,
    He dont like Hoof Casts as he likes to take them off,
    He also really does not like mean women at the barn,
    He used to hate trailers, but his mommy has helped him with that.
    And the two things at the top of Gens list is Guinea Hens he thinks they would make good soccer balls as he would love to kick them if they got to close….
    Gen also has a distaste for oil & powdered supplements on his grain….

    Gen would like to add that he likes Reiki as it makes him feel good!

  21. Because I don’t know Gen… I had to call him this morning after he had his breakfast. Gen said he hates all bugs but he really hates it when the flies crawl into his ears and buzz around in the little hairs! When he shakes his head they leave the hairs but land on the edge of his ear. While the flies are sitting there, they cup their little bug hands up around their mouths and laugh into his ear! That’s the part that drives him nuts!
