    I don't know the farmer or where he lives or what his phone number is. If I did know, I would have asked him a LONG time ago. I just met him once when we moved to this place a few years ago. Would it be ok if I pinned a note to a post or tree with my phone number and my question? I AM doing what I can.

    If you don't know who farms that field, do you know ANY farmers? They probably know who does every acre in the county. If you don't know any of them, talk to the folks at your local feed and farm supply store- you might have to talk to a manager, but they DEFINITELY know at least a few of the local farmers, and they could help put you in touch with one or two so you can track down who farms the fields by your pasture.

    Without knowing WHAT chemicals are being used, it is completely impossible to know or even guess if your horses will be safe. Some chemicals are safe after they dry. Some need to be rained on before they're safe. Some have a time limit before they're safe- maybe two days, maybe two weeks, maybe a month. The only way you're going to know is to track down the farmer and talk to him. Short of that, you're just putting them out there and hoping they don't get accidentally poisoned.

    Nope. Just does not cut it. It didn't when I was growing up. Didn't when my kids were growing up. Didn't with my Grandpa or father.

    DO what you KNOW you need to do.

    Dont really get what you mean? I don't know how else to contact him.

    Edit. I will ask my dad, HOPEFULLY he knows! I don't plan on putting up the new pasture fence until I find out what he's spraying.

    Here in the U.S., you can find the owner and mailing address from the county real estate tax office. I imagine there is something similar in Canada.

    The farmer was in the field today checking for fallen trees and stuff, I would've asked him but I'm babysitting my little brother and I can't leave him alone.
    I'll try to contact him sometime this week and I'll update you guys on how things went.

    UPDATE:
    I FINALLY got to talk to the farmer. Yesterday he was just about to spray his field when we got a hefty downpour with hail. He left his spray tractor(or what ever it's called) in the field and went home. After it stopped raining, I left a note on his tractor with my question and phone number. So today I got a call and he says he's just spraying roundup this year and my horse should be fine. Boy, was I relieved!

    He even said I had quite a nice horse!
