Odd as it may sound, that argument may not hold true in all cases. Tomatoes, potatoes and peppers are not poisonous, but the plants they come off of are members of the deadly nightshade family, and can be deadly to humans and horses alike.
However, carrot tops are quite nutritious for both humans and horses. If carrot tops are dangerous, its only because if your horse eats too much it can cause colic and/or the runs...
