    That's really getting up there for a lab and especially for a Newfy! When my Newfy got older (he lived until almost 14 yrs old), the heat really took it out of him. We had a couple scares when it got...

    You will eventually have a layer of "dirt" build up as the grass blades and weeds die and/or you mow and it composts. I second what G. suggested with the Roundup.

    Kind of figured sweet gum and mesquite weren't going to make your list :D but they are pretty innocuous to horses, except maybe gum balls in hooves and thorns from the mesquite. Dogwood and willows...

    Tulip poplar is a fast-grower and non-toxic to horses. I think crepe myrtle, magnolia, and sweetgum (if you can stand the "gum balls") are all pretty safe also. There's always mesquite.

    I use this also and add a little baby oil. You could probably add some SOS instead. Shake before spraying. Also helps with ticks. I have found it works as well as anything else. Nothing stops the...

    Also of concern would be bacteria (esp. Coliform), sulfates, nitrogen, protozoa, pesticides, herbicides. Blue-green algae in a warm, stagnant pond is also a big concern - very toxic to horses.

    I've had light Brahmas. They are large, docile birds, but mine were not good egg layers.

    If you want colored eggs, try the Ameraucana

    We got a large drum fan with the sealed motor, appropriate for dusty places. Don't know the particular model/price, but it is similar to this. It moves a lot of air.
