The Billings Gazette is reporting that the horses ridden by the U.S. Border Patrol in Arizona are being fed a pellet-based diet. Why is this ISW news? The horses have been switched off hay to avoid the danger of their feces spreading non-native weeds, typically found as hay contaminants, into the deserts of Arizona. I still wonder how groups that rent out goats and sheep to eat invasives deal with this issue.
