That mesh is nasty stuff. I picked Gabby's stall for over an hour with two of my friends the night I discovered it had been dumped in there. Your post was very timely in me knowing I was right in freaking out over it. I picked out an entire zip lock freezer bag of it in the subsequent days. I feel bad for the horses who's owners won't know about it til maybe it's too late.

They should have never chose the cheaper "dirty fill dirt" for horses stalls. Crazy!

here's what I wonder about - if wakemom's barn owner knows or has been made aware that stuff is in there they can be held liable for everything....  other than they should care about the horses not suffering they could really get hurt monetarily.   There'd be no limit to my anger if my horse got hurt there and I found out they knew there was stuff in the fill.

Yeah, I've never had any of that green mesh stuff. I can see where a horse could easily ingest it, and since it's green, it looks yummy to them. I hope your camping trip goes well.

They don't care kckc...I mentioned it long ago, the first time it turned up and no one cared. They said "horses won't eat that". I beg to differ. There was so much wrong there I pulled Gabby last Monday. From weed killer, to "forgetting" to feed horses, to the dirty fill...I could not risk my horses life. If I brought anything up, I was considered the trouble maker. There was just so much that I can't even begin to explain here, and my friends (some of them former boarders now gone) don't know how I put up with it as long as I did. Mainly cuz I grabbed Gabby and left a lot.

you moved your horse?  Glad you put her first.   Hate the other people don't or don't realize the dangers.   How is your new place?

Glad Reggie has had no more ill effects from the mesh!  I would be so freaked out.  I never thought of what might be in stalls we use since ours are on pasture 24/7.  They are like wild brumbies at home, but I will be checking the stalls wherever we go now.  I always worry about stray hay twine popping up somewhere.  I hope you had a fun trip camping with your horses!
