When to Blanket A Horse?

I am personally NOT a fan of blanketing. To me, it looks difficult to move in and makes the horse uncomfortable. They can't roll like they'd want to, they can't grow their winter coats properly, etc. But I live in Canada where even in the southern parts of this country, it can get to as low as -20C (-4F). So I was wondering what you consider to be the point at which you should start ...

Will feed-through fly control or wormer affect composting w/ earthworms?

I am wanting to use a daily feed through fly control pellet and daily wormer but I'm not sure if these will affect my vermicomposting worms (African nightcrawlers).

Thanks beforehand.

How do you remove smelly grass clippings?

My husband has been dumping the grass clippings in the back yard. We had no idea this would cause such a stench. After he looked under the top layer it smelled horrible and almost looked like it was steaming. What is the best way to get rid of this? Bag it up and set it to the road? This was not supposed to be a compost pile or anything, we just want it gone.
