[RC] Help: My Mare's Eating Water Hemlock & I Can't Kill It - Jill Cohn


I weed-whipped the entire paddock (about 75' X 45') and within 4 days
those tender water hemlock shoots were 3-4 inches tall and she was
feasting again.  It's a poison and gives her loose poops but is likely
damaging her liver, as well as her GI system.  It's an elusive plant
and I can't kill it with weed-whipping.  It reproduces like crazy and
is everywhere.  She only does this at this time of year as once it
gets bigger it's, apparently, not as tasty.  Had the idea of using a
cattle prod or some type of electrical modality to really ZAP that
water hemlock but don't have a clue if I could rent one in our urban
environment (Berkeley/Orinda).  The local rental place has nothing
like that.  Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
