I've lived in Italy and they have them there, too. They say hay or pasture with foxtail is worthless. They also believe it causes the same sores down towards the stomach.
Apparently when the hay is made fairly early, the seeds are not dangerous yet, because they're still soft.
And, I used to find them everywhere stuck in my clothes, all the way to the underwear....even after washing.....
If present in pasture keeping them from seeding through mowing make them die out eventually.

Well I know everyone has been asking about my horse... Had a vet see her this morning and she told me because of the other food ( that was bad cheap rotten hay ) she was on before I moved her two days ago she had a horrible bacterial infect...ion in her mouth. Her lymph nodes are horribly swollen and the stickers in the hay lodged them selves under her tongue and were rotten and nasty so reason for her not eating good and drooling horribly. She had three sedation shots cause she wouldn't conk out lol and a anti inflammatory shot and now needs medication twice a day along with a bute Asprin for pain for 10 days..... Poor baby ... Here is here all loopy on her meds lol lower lip hanging silly girl .. I was so worried ... Sigh of relief !

Good to know that she will be fine. Jeeze, I think horses do that to keep us on our toes... hopefully no one else was eating that stuff.
