Wild Asters - Nutrition facts?
Hey everyone, my four year old colt is in LOVE with eating the wild asters we have on the property. Even the older ones that are a little woody. He loves weeds in general, but these are his favorite (a good guy to have around when gardening ;).
Does anyone know anything about these little flowers? Nutritional value? They haven't had any effect negative effects, they are just like popcorn to him. I have him on a performance vitamin supplement that covers all the basis, and he has a trace mineral salt lick, but I'm wondering if this obsession is showing a deficiency of some sort. I couldn't find anything on these flowers, but maybe an avid gardener out there would have an idea. He is on timothy hay, and a Purina strategy/alfalfa pellet grain mixture with the vitamin supplement.
