When you get groundsel in your pasture do your horses avoid it? I am close to the coast but have not had an issue in my pasture and they leave it alone when we ride the beach.

Common Groundsel - Toxic Plant

I just lost my 10 year old Paint show horse to Common Groundsel, it gave him liver disease and he didn't pull through. His mother now has liver disease also, but she is holding her own. No more alfalfa and we are giving her beet pulp which is suppose to be really good for her, she loves it!

According to my vet once a horse starts eating common groundsel they acquire a taste for it and will look for it to eat.

Someone said something about peaches, plums and cherries being poisonous. Would a nectarine be poisonous?-this is important!!! A little girl at my stable feeds her horse nectarines sometimes and I want to know if it is dangerous.

I was told that horses can eat nectarines, but only in small amounts, same with peaches. Peaches can be bad for horses, but are toxic. Peach leaves are very toxic though !!

Wait......... is it the tree seeds and stuff? Because if you give a horse an apple, they eat the whole thing, not around the seeds...
