    Well I'm glad he's vigilant about that, but I'm at a loss to think of what it might be.

    I'm not a particularly imaginative person. When I joined the Horse Forum one of my choices was 'Horses' for my name and it was taken already so I tried the french version of the word and it was accepted. While I know a few words in french, I am by no means bilingual - in fact, I barely have command of english which is my first language.

    Foal
    Having horses around anything that a chicken has been around is a huge no no until everything is really cleaned. When I bought my second barn, chickens had been stored in it for what ever dumb reason.
    I had to go in and remove the top dirt, and bleach the entire barn and then wait a month for the parasites to die. Chicken poo can make a horse very sick.

    They are fine now, it was just a virus, my other horse has caught it now and she is kept in a different place and has been nowhere near chickens :) but a few others at the barn got it, didn't have medication and passed it no problems so just going to keep an eye on her :)

    On the topic of chickens, I recently learned that in the 40's a type of chicken feed was used to help kill off a certain type of parasite and bulk them up. In recent years, some companies have stopped using that feed because traces of arsenic was being found in the chicken meat. And they still suggest that today, someone who is 140 lbs should not consume more than 2 ounces of chicken a day
