If I have the paddocks and pasture 50ft away, from the field isnt that going to be good enough? I mean, they don't spray concentrated chemicals do they? And only a little mist would come on the grass it wont hurt-right?
I'm NOT trying to alarm you. No one here knows his property, yours or the conditions. I think that we are working for you so you get the most grazing area for your horses and stay safe. You have to figure this out. That's YOUR job.
As EVERYONE has advised. Talk with him!
Plane spraying/misting CAN and WILL DRIFT even with what appears to be NO breeze but you want/he wants/the pilot wants any breeze to be away from you.
So go find the man and see him. Introduce yourself and tell him of your concerns but with understanding that HE has a job to do also. Exchange phone numbers. I'll bet that you will be able to work together.
I look foreword to hearing how your meeting went.
