MOLD! Mold EVERYWHERE!
Good. LORD. I have mold taking over my TACK, my hay, the feed! It's everywhere lately! Even at my tack shop, in the storage building (Brand new steel and concrete building!), on my inventory. It's ruined an entire bag of feed and a big bag of horse treats. Not even sure how to DISPOSE of it so the cows and the horses don't find it and make themselves sick. Considered throwing it in the big pond for the geese and the catfish, but I don't even know that I should do THAT.
It's powdery, it's dusty green and grey, it's all over everything lately... even the grass (Supes has had the slobbers lately because of it).
I guess it's just because it's been humid and still and hot the past four weeks or so. We usually have a lot of air circulation in SE Oklahoma but lately, nope. Therefore, we also have a ton of dime and quarter sized mosquitoes buzzing around too.
GLAD for the cooler weather and I never, ever thought I'd say this... glad for the wind returning.
Anyone else had this problem this year in the US, or ever, anywhere? One of my flip saddles was so covered in it I used a spray bottle of hydrogen peroxide on it... didn't damage the leather, didn't stain it, but it BUBBLED UP in some places where the mold was the thickest. I've never seen it this bad before, ever. It was nasty anyway to start with, so I don't think there was much that could have HURT it... so I peroxided it to kingdom come (It cleaned up beautifully btw).
