6. which dna damaged plants?
They weren't in a pasture, but small turnout. And I'm wondering if they got sick first, which can cause them to need additional nutrition and go down. Or if they got sick as a result of malnutrition. I know that 7 years ago when Algiers got shipping fever, he could barely swallow. I was all I could do to get a pound or two of wet mash down him (they need 15-20 pounds/day). He came home a rack of bones within a week and I was afraid he wouldn't make it.

The whole situation is sickening me. He got overwhelmed, which can happen to any of us. I don't know what help he was offered -- they don't specify that in the article.

Only that after a month-long investigation, in which his name was withheld, he was arrested. The 2 horses they tested had less than 4% fat in their marrows. There should be 80%+ fat in the marrows.

We get our hay from different farms that are near each other and I know I had one *hell* of a time getting and keeping weight on Algiers this past summer...I had to really throw him a lot of grain after a surprising winter weight-loss.

So I'm very interested in dna-damaged plants if it's affecting grass hay...
