Neogene has genetic testing. Is this the same? Samples ship to Nebraska and they can do it off blood card vs tissue sample.
They told me to ship to Canada & it's on the submission form.

For my horses I always used CalDavis....cheap, used blood or hair with root base. 🤷 All my horses were DNA & registered.
UCDavis, $44 per test. And needs sires tested to be able to compare to. So, $88 one sire, $132 in this case, to test against 2 sires. And one is sold, so couldn't test to him. But just one is enough, since it's only between 2 possible sires.
Neogen is $21 per test and they already had the two possible sires on file.

Rain finally stopped, but just for the day...More rain tonight. 🙄😭
So, got as much mowing of weeds as I could. But I ran into some issues. 😑

This is actually a bad pic comparison, too far away to see how much there was....but the other pics of thistles shows size and density, it was all just so full...ugh.

Then I lost the pin, washer and the hook. Found the hook, had to find my own way to keep it attached.

Spotted a snake, a few times. Had to mow carefully to avoid it.

I also hate rushes and these clumping grasses and broomsedge.
