Question Safe trees for horses?..

My 27 year old tb mare passed away last auguest and she was buried at the farm where I ride. I want to plant a tree where she is buried.. Only problem is that sometimes the horses are tured out where she's at.

Does anyone know of a good tree that I can plant that's safe for horses? Or maybe some flowers that are safe for horses. Im in Ny..So it would have to be an easy to find tree and/or flower.

Im also going to get one of those memorial things that's going to go on her grave site.

I'm really sorry your horse passed away
I know my horses will eat the bark off of anything besides evergreens. You might look into a pine tree or cedar.

Vida, you made me laugh, that's what I was going to say too, evergreens.

NyHorseGal, so sorry for your loss. I agree with Vida that an evergreen would work well and they do grow quite fast and are beautiful year round. You could even decorate it with bird seed ornaments to bring a smile to your face when you look over there.
