The toxicity of acorns (and oak leaves) varies by oak variety and how long they have been on the ground, but eating a few is not going to hurt your horse. All the horses around here munch on acorns this time of year. The best thing you can do is to insure your horse has as much hay/forage as possible in their gut. That will reduce any harmful effects from the acorns.
On the sixth day, God created the Quarter Horse.
On the seventh day, he Painted the good ones.
