Virginia Cooperative Extension - HORSE

Weed of the Week: Buttercups are a herbaceous perennial that tend to be opportunistic, coming up in thin or bare spots where pastures have been over-grazed. While horses tend to avoid eating them (which is good, since they’re toxic), they take up space and nutrients that could be used to support forages your horses can eat. Although most folks notice Buttercups this time of year, the best time to apply herbicide is in late February or March, when they first start to grow (products containing 2,4-D and dicamba are very effective at this time). Keep in mind that spraying is really a short-term Band-Aid -- the best way to prevent buttercups is to have a thick, healthy stand of grass. If you’re interested in learning more about pasture management and weed control, sign up for the Equine Forage Webinars held Thursday evenings each week at 7pm from now through June 18th: https://virginiatech.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_lBeJyWnaSJ6D3XwFDviekQ?fbclid=IwAR2PsFaPufmrRB9ElYo8fArcekNM_iEcdpvbvhUE96FpImFdh2rhUFm-PY0

She will also talk about a resource database of safety net programs including rescues and hay banks for horse owners.

Then Bryan Brendle from the American Horse Council will describe some pandemic-related federal assistance programs including unemployment assistance, federal tax rebates, and two small business loans made available by the CARES Act (the Paycheck Protection Program and the Economic Injury Disaster Loan).

A Place Called Hope

A Place Called Hope

Between the lead cases we have gotten in, and now the influx in Rodenticide Secondary Poisoning cases, we are in battle over here at APCH. Admitted a Great tHorned Owl from a golf course who was a classic case of rodenticide poisoning, and she died after one grand seizure. (This Golf Course DID NOT use rodenticides, but a neighborhood surrounds it) This picture was after she was flipped over since she was discovered face down after a seizure. She is free from her agony, but as we examined her body, we found a brood patch. This means she left an active nest of babies. Long story short, we arrived just in time before crows invaded nest. No dad present, and even if he was, he only drops food off to his family and does not sit on the babies or rip and tear food for little mouths. We presume he has also succumb to the rodenticides since there still has been no sighting of him. We retrieved two young owlets who we feared also ingested poison. They are still alive but one of them was in crisis and is currently guarded. We also took in a Red Tailed Hawk from Madison who responded well to the Vitamin K therapy and is going to survive her secondary poisoning. We got her in time to save her. Often that is not the case. We admitted two more secondary poisoning cases just yesterday... a Coopers Hawk from New Haven and a Red Tailed Hawk from New Britain. Both displaying symptoms and experiencing micro seizures. It may be too late for these two. Time will tell.
PLEASE: STOP USING RODENTICIDES
Your quick fix solution has a long term effect and kills many non-targeted victims. NO, it is NEVER SAFE and your exterminator and the company selling the product is LYING when they tell you it is. It is toxic and it is deadly otherwise it would not kill the mice or rats you are targeting. YES, some need repeat doses so the single dose ingested won't likely kill anything, but over a few doses, it builds up to a level that is deadly and will eventually kill whatever, whomever has ingested it. This must stop but since so many stores still carry this deadly product on their shelves and so many people don't stop to think about the bigger picture, we fear we will continue to fight this battle. We can't tell you how many times we have heard, "I don't want to touch the dead mouse or rat" or "I don't want to see the dead mouse or rat" therefore rodenticide is chosen. If you have the power to take those lives away, then it is on you to do so humanely and responsibly. Find an alternative to poison. Do exclusion work, use a Live trap and relocate, or a Snap Trap, or RatZapper. Our favorite rodent control is to put up Owl Nesting Boxes. I know of someone who collected used ferret bedding to spread near active rodent areas and the mice evacuated. We owe it to our wildlife to make better choices where we are not causing more damage. We at APCH are doing all we can, but we need your help in spreading the anti-rodenticide message. Please alert your friends and family. Thank you for caring and as always thank you for sharing.
