There's another one in another pasture which has no shade, so I can't complain about that one. Some in the area told me to use the chlorine tablets that they use for pools. She said to use a 1/4 of the tablet. She said it didn't hurt her horses. My reply was that she didn't keep her horses long enough for her to see if there was a problem. I've had my Belgian for 24yrs. I also have a paint that's 8yrs and a rescue. I just want to make sure, that what ever I do is safe for them. Thanks
The only way to do it is to scrub them. Gold fish fry in the florida heat.
