And illegal It is deadly to horses

See: Weeds Act 1959 Weeds Act 1959 (http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/Eliz2/7-8/54/section/1)
Followed by Ragwort Control Act 2003 Ragwort Control Act 2003 (http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/2003/40/section/1)

Some local councils need reminding of their obligations under these acts

Still raining!!

Buxton is Buxton and has it's own Micro Climate. Think of any UK weather, you'll probably experience it over a weekend in Buxton!!

HI FF

We pull it up in the horse field,but is it illegal to pull it up FF?. We were told horse's don't eat it while it's growing ?

(It will be interesting where Firefox put's this Blog, OUCH!!) :banana::banana::cool1::cool1:

My understanding is that alive, horses won't eat, but dead, ie mixed into hay or just the natural process in autumn, it's fatal.

I've spent many "happy" hours pulling it up from our daughters paddock when she had a horse. Then had to burn the lot.

The council didn't do anything about their waste land until I quoted the Acts.!!!

Stopped off en route near Weston OTG, lovely dog walk in lovely weather, then at the time of your message we got hammered by the thunder and lightening storm. We legged it across a field into the copse for shelter ........ only to discover one dog missing! :scared::scared::scared:

Went back out and found her :banana::banana::banana: she had got frightened and hid under the hedge row. Bless her. :sad:

By the time we all got back to the MH there was no part of any of us that was not soaked to the bone. :boat:
