    For the first time in 34 years I do not have any barn swallows. I had about 15 nests occupied in the beginning. Last year only 2, this year none. I do have five cats but I have always had cats.

    Absolutely no stress in this horse's life. Could be what merrygoround said. The location of the rings coincide with the time of snowfall.

    Rings, depressions on feet

    Other than laminitis, fever and change of feed are there causes for rings to form on feet?

    Not all but a lot of my pasture is in a flood plain. I was worried about it initially but my neighbor assured me that it wasn't a problem. He said that along with the water I get good top soil and...

    I use dust free sawdust (now if that isn't an oxymoron). It is a little more expensive but works much better than shavings. The pee seems to stay more concentrated in one spot like kitty litter.
