Sounds like you need a hug-- 'commere!
No hard feelings, sweetheart-- I might be an 'idiot' but at least im happy..
FACT 1: I'm no ones sweetheart, just a hard working farmer and horse owner with a low tolerance level for BS.
FACT 2: I'm not wrong, where as time and again in seemingly thread after thread you state your opinions as facts, and also seem to think that your way is the only way.
FACT 3: Glad you recognize an insult, because that means that when you are chucking them around you ARE doing it deliberately.
FACT 4: I am very very choosy who actually touches me, so please do not hug, it makes me twitchy.
FACT 5: I'm glad you are happy and you recognize what you are, makes life so much more pleasant.
What you do not seem able to grasp is that all this stems from the FACT that you are wrong,
YES there is a causal link between AUSTRALIAN(as in prevalent in Australia) stringhalt read this https://www.google.ca/url?sa=t&rct=j...,d.aWc&cad=rja
ONE mention of the word dandelion and that is when paired with false, as in false dandelion.
Step by step,
Dandelions are not poisinous to horses or people, but a highly beneficial herb
: or a weed if you prefer, but beneficial just the same.
There is a mycotoxin that exists that causes Australian Stringhalt
This mycotoxin is found on Flatweed (Hypochaeris radicata
), Sheep Sorrel and Couch, false dandelion.
It is found on highly stressed land following drought conditions.
SO returning to the pic that started it all, a cute looking pony happily grazing on and around healthy dandelions and good looking grass, it is scaremongering and totally false to state "you know that dandelions or poisonous don't you"
