Is it true that peanuts will clog a horse's intestine's because they cannot digest them properly? What about peanut butter. I was looking around and found this...

I can't find any reputable sites that note that peanuts aren't digestible by horses, however to be on the safe side it would be a good idea to feed no more than a few at a time.

Peanuts can also contain the same toxin found in moldy corn that is so dangerous to horses.
