Wild Parsnip, Hog Weed... Is this dangerous to horses.

I've been seeing this wild parsnip weed in the pasture and the other day two people were mowing the pasture and they swelled up do to the weed. Is it dangerous to the horses I seen them touching it today. Just curious if it affects animals like it does humans.

My horse pasture has a lot of it, but my horses don't seem to be sick from it. I did get into a bad batch of it about a month ago, and I still have scars. It got blisters and sores from it. Don't TOUCH IT! Lol
