The farm in question uses toxic chemicals. What else is new, right?
As I sat in the back yard with my dog, sunning, I noticed chemical odors. Then I saw the fine dust, drifting from a nearby field, floating across our space. The chemical odors are worse in the mornings – or whenever there is moisture in the air.
Things suddenly came together for me: the horses have been ‘sick’, they’ve been in the barn instead of galloping in the fields.
They are loved and well-tended but have been affected by chemicals! It is my understanding that fields get contaminated with farming chemicals, and that farmers sometimes accidentally let their animals into toxic areas.
It is cruel and heartbreaking.
