Re: [RC] Bummed out etc./ dew poisioning - Tracy Cann

Good news, I've found something to obsess over while I'm healing.  My horses (the ones with white legs) get a "dew poisoning" or photosensitivity reaction in mid to late summer.  I've tried many things to avoid or treat it to no avail.  I've been told it?s a plant in my pastures causing it but get a variety of opinions on 'which' plant.  So I've been researching on the internet and have printed pictures of suspect plants.  Now I get to go on a pasture hunt from hell.  (Doc says I can walk)  I will be armed with as much Round-up as I need.  Sounds time consuming but what else do I have to do?  Oh yea, groomed everybody yesterday (they look like show horses) and got a farmer's tan (does that count?).  Worked on teaching the project/abused horse that clippers are not evil incarnate.  Got about half of his bridle path done (hey that IS progress).  Appreciate the motivation.
Cool Huh?
