clay soil

I'm preparing a flower bed in a former lawn area. As I dig, I'm finding a layer of hard, sometimes greenish thick clay. Is there a way to treat this to break it up? There's about 10 inches of soil above the clay, would it be okay to plant above it? I know we have bentonite in our area - could that be what this is?

I get diarrhea after eating tomatoes like when I ingest milk or jelly with pectin

At 66 years old I found out about lactose intolerance. I quit all dairy sugar, including that stuck in bread and such and still get the same diarrhea if I eat jelly or jam with pectin or if I eat tomato red sauce on my noodles. A neighbor told me that the same enzyme that breaks down lactose also breaks down phlorizin, pectin, annatto, gentiobiose, tomatine(tomatoes), solanine(in potatoes) and the various gums used for preservatives in foods. I have stopped eating those things implicated an never have diarrhea anymore. Please explain.

Runaway Horse?

My horse has tried to bite my foot while riding and when that didn't work now he is bolting with me on him and zig zags me off or tries to and sometimes succeeds and wins because he just won't stop. What aid, tool or exercise besides round pen can help me stop my horse. Sometimes turning his head towards his hind works and not as easily anymore. People say I am stupid because I don't use a bit. Is a bit going to help or is it just going to annoy him more and make him more moody. He is a stallion and getting gelded this winter, will that help also?
