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!

Welcome to the forum jhorse. According to this list: FLORIDA HORSE.COM - Poisonous Plants for Horses it is.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.

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.
