Questions about poisonous plants for horses

Hi there. I am starting to do some landscaping on my property and the thread on toxic plants has been helpful. However, I haven't seen anything about bougainvillea. Does anyone know if this is toxic for horses? Thanks!

Thanks for that link and the welcome! Are citrus trees harmful to horses as well? I love bougainvillea in my yards but it seems like I may have to pass on this plant. Do the plants generally have to be injested to be harmful or is simple contact enough? Thanks

There is a sticky of poisonous plants. Here Toxic Plants and Trees

Also, I don't know what state you are in, but check to see if your state university (or neighboring state) has an extension service for horses. If they do they may have a state-specific list.

Welcome to HF!
