Plants Toxic to Horses

Here is a good link to put in our favorites for future reference! This is an extensive list of toxic plants and each is a link of it's own for further info. It also lists the common names for each plant to help solve that potential dilemma also.

Here in the midwest, it's time to beware of the red maple leaves and wilted wild cherry trees. Both are highly toxic in the wilted stage and it's a horrible death for an animal and for the owner to deal with.

Prevention is always the best method! Also, a well-fed animal is much less likely to sample anything toxic as they aren't hungry so will graze for the tastier morsels of good grass and such!
