So, my horses and pygmy goat are brand new to Texas and we have 7 acres of grass and mesquite. They have never dealt with mesquite before as we didn't have that where we were in California. There are some HUGE spikes on them, that will go right through tires! We are planning on trying to eradicate it (which apparently isn't an easy task), but several neighbors has told me that we shouldn't worry about it as their horses just avoid it. I am worried about it being stepped on because the spikes would go right through their frog, or them trying to eat it. Anyone else dealt with mesquite and have some thoughts on this subject?
