    I HATE those.I don't have any in my pasture but my friend does.They suck lol

    It took us hours to pick them out of her mare's LONG mane and tail.

    The easiest way I've found to get rid of them is cut them down before they seed and burn the plants....

    Thanks skittle. I will have to give that a try. Do I need to do it now or wait until spring?

    Keep an eye on were they are so you know for sure which plants you're pulling, and pull them out by as many roots as you can next spring.... then burn the plants you pull out... If you do it now, they'll scatter seeds and reseed everywere.... That should get rid of them for you... If you want, just to make sure, spray some weed killer on were you pull them from, but just pulling them should solve the problem...

    Your welcome... If theres a lot of them, you might need to make sure through the summer that you got them all... As long as you get them out before the seed pods start forming, you should be ok...

    Thanks I just cleaned up Cutter from all of hers. I had to cut her mane but I only ended up cutting about 3 inches off of her tail which she needed anyway since it was pretty close to the ground.

    Both my horses need tail trims... Storm is an inch away from the ground, and Sandy is on the ground...

    Yeah I think though I took off more than what I wanted to on Cutter but she looks a lot better. I still need to trim her mane up some but I like it anyway. I rode her today and she did great for not being rode in several months.
