Horses showing fear and aggression

I have two horses - sisters. They've always been together, but I rescued them. When my daughter and I ride them with other horses, one acts very afraid, the other will try to kick at other horses. There must have been problems before I got them. How do I get them over this?

Western Conifer Seed Bug

Since living in the forest of NW Montana I have researched this little bug several times. I always find that it is deemed "harmless", "does not bite or sting". Well, I beg to differ. I am wondering how I can get an entomologist to recognize that this critter is not, in fact, the happy little bug that you think it is! Last Saturday (9-19-15) a bug fell down the back of my shirt and by the time I got it out I knew that I had been "injected". I immediately had my husband apply triamcinalone to the welts that had arisen on my back. He said that I had 4 puncture sites. Sunday afternoon, I suddenly felt incredibly fatigued and had to get horizontal immediately! I spent the rest of the evening feeling like I had the flu coming on.(I found 2 references, on the internet, from people citing these kind of symptoms, following a bug entrapment.) I started feeling nauseous and feverish. I wound up calling out the ambulance as I was really beginning to feel as though I needed to go to the ER (one hour away). By the time they arrived I had vomited and felt marginally better and elected not to go to the hospital. After they left, however, I gradually became worse - vomiting every hour on the hour for most of the night. I went to the clinic in the morning, was given a liter of IV fluid, swabbed for the flu and sent home. I became worse, spiking a temperature to almost 102, vomited once more. The flu swab was negative. I gradually improved enough to keep a little food down and drink some fluids. Today, I awoke around 0330 to find that I was completely covered in a rash from neck to toe! Please don't try to tell me that it must have been something else that caused all this - I KNOW that it was this bug! I will add that I had a gall bladder removal 8 years ago, with complications. I spent 3 weeks in the hospital for what was a 'simple', same day, surgery. Since that time I have had all kinds of problems including "over the top" reactions to ordinary little mishaps! Like a bug bite! I would greatly appreciate your input regarding this matter. I will be happy to supply you with any other information that may be helpful.

fruit trees

When I was pruning my apricot, pear, and apple trees I found ring encasements around1/8th to 1/4 inch branches. The bands are from about 3/8th inch to 1/2 inch wide - 1/16th to 1/8 inch thick and appear to be of a harden mucus. They appear to be grayish and sparkle a little in the sunshine. It is as if they have small glitter on themThey are not plentiful, but I found more than a dozen while pruning this afternoon.

Sainfoin crop

We have a field of sainfoin. We used antiquated equipment to plant it so have some areas with fewer plants. Can we use a double disk drill to plant more seeds in these areas? can we plant it this fall? Also, we would like information on no till seeding another field with sainfoin.
