Beware of the Blister Beetle in your Alfalfa Hay

This little guy may not look like much, but apparently he packs a nasty punch!  Just recently someone reported finding remnants of this tiny creature in some alfalfa hay they just purchased in Brevard County, FL.  This beetle is found only in Alfalfa or Alfalfa mixture of hays.  I do not personally feed any hay with alfalfa in it, although each hay has its own set of issues from time to time so being diligent no matter what type of hay you buy is a good cautionary thing to do.  I found this great article from the University of Kentucky giving great insight to this culprit:  www2.ca.uky.edu/entomology/entfacts/ef102.asp.  It is a great bit of information for all of us who own horses!

Just when you think you have heard it all….


This article is going to make your blood boil for sure.  I'm not sure what kind of sick, cruel person would do such a horrendous thing, but apparently this just occurred in the Ocala area of Florida which is our mecca of horses.

Need a job this summer?

Summer Jobs with Horses

Do you happen to have a High School/College student that may be looking for a little work this summer and loves horses?  This is a good article explaining what to do if you or someone you know may be looking to help out around a barn during summer camps.  If it's volunteer opportunities you are looking for, you can always contact the SFSPCA (helpthehorses.org) to inquire about volunteering there.  The age to begin there is 12.
