Hi there. I'm new to the forum. Seems like there is a lot of good info. I am starting to do some landscaping on my property and the string on toxic plants has been helpful. I haven't seen anything about bougaianvillea. Does anyone know if this is toxic for horses? Thanks!

We have a pasture that was left to grow over and the whole pasture was completly grown in with butter cup.... the farmer just mowed it the other day to let the grass grow in.... will it be safe to put the horses out there once the sap from cutting it all down dries out or should we just avoid it all together??

Could anyone tell me if Wild Parsnip is harmful to horses? It is an invasive species that is very plentiful here in SE MN and causes very nasty reactions on human skin in the form of blisters.

Walnut Trees!

You don't need to dig them up, but trim the branches so horses can't nibble.

Some of the poisonus plants i've heard of are ...

Deadly nightshade
Cherry Laurel

There is one principle that should never be abandoned, namely, that the rider must first learn to control himself before he can control his horse. This is the basic, most important principle to be preserved in equitation - Alois Podhajsky
