21 September 2007

It has taken me a while to upload these. These were the plants I found in the field where the 4 mares are, who are suffering from sunburn. Wiggle and Cat are still peeling and scaly, Wiggle is the worst but I have been spraying them with conditioner and disinfectant and sunscreen and they are improving. This first one has really sharp thorny things on it.

These two are shots of the other plant. If anyone knows what they are I would be interested so that I can rule them out as the problem.

We had people over to look at the yearlings today and to see my friend Tiffany's two horses that she is selling. We think that they may be interested in one of our fillies and one of Tiffany's yearling geldings. These two young ladies live near Grand Rapids Michigan which is about a four hour drive from here. They train their own horses and are looking for winter projects and arent worried about the fact that our fillies have absolutely no training past halters and having manners, so these horses will be perfect. Keep fingers and toes crossed that we hear back from them, I know this will be a good home.

Abraham, Donna et.al. I will get back to you with info on the calendars tomorrow. I havent had a good day so that is it for today. I didnt achieve much after our visitors left, was too hot again.

((((Hugs)))) to you all.

Gee, if they're looking for prospects that sounds hopeful. Will keep my fingers crossed.

Sorry you didn't have a good day. Wish we could have a little of your heat here, but only a little. lol

Hope you have a better day tomorrow. Will be thinking of you.

I should know the plants and names come to mind but I thought I best not say what I think they are and let that to experts. However the white blossom cluster looks like cow parsley or wild parsley.

Scientific name: Anthriscus sylvestris. Also known as Cow Parsley, Wild Chervil, Wild Beaked Parsley, and Keck.

Then I discovered it is often Poison Hemlock and now wild parsley. And after looking at the leaves in your picture I think it is poison hemlock. You can check it out. That might explain the rash and other symptons.

The other reminds me of a thistle.

Will look for the calendar info later.
