New Horse Hauling Rules

I'm so confused by this whole thing. There is so much info out there that is confusing and misleading. Many of my friends are rushing out to get CDL class A licenses! I am a recreational trailrider traveling all over the country, I reside in Texas. My GVWR on my trailer is 15,210 lbs., actual weight is only 7000 lbs. My truck GVWR is 9000lbs. I am under the 26,000 lbs limit, BUT my trailer GVWR is over that 10,000 limit............Do I need a special license????

Wildflower meadow

I have an acre meadow on Lake Fork. It originally was a bahia pasture. Currently, it has a mixture of paint brush, black eyed susan, yarro, 6 ft black eyed susan (not sure of name), purple flowers and others along with bermuda and bahia grass. What are your recommendations for killing bahia grass while not harming the wildflowers? Thanks, Howard Ladewig

Starting a lavender farm

We are planning on planting various varieties of lavender this upcoming fall. We are in Rains Co. And have a lot of grasshoppers. How do we effectively get rid of the hoppers now so they don't munch on our new plants. Should we address the hoppers with chickens maybe? How many chickens would we need to our address hopper problem with our 10 acres of lavender plants? Thanks, Lisa

I have lost many Red oaks up to 36" due to drought and disease. Now I have a 43" water oak that has several 9" limbs dying from the end. Should I cut off only the dead end or the entire limb at the trunk? Should it be done now or during the winter? Thank you for your assistance. Don
