Mice in the hay?
Hi guys, I was wondering what you do when(if) you find mice in your hay. My dad set up a few traps(but didn't catch any before my sister got rid of them) and he talks a lot about how dangerous the dust with mouse pee/poop in it is for the horses.
It started off with one or two mice that I would see maybe once a week... Now it's five or six and I just found a nest with 7+ babies. The babies are adorable and we've had pet mice before, but now I'm getting worried about all of those diseased mice living and running around in my horse's feed.
So what should I do? Are they really that dangerous? I live out in California so everything is very dry, including the hay.
Thanks in advance for your answers!
