We are building a new barn and will fence off around 4 acres for pasture. Within that pasture is a big walnut tree. Any dangers to the horse from it. I know you can't bed with walnut sawdust as there is a founder problem. Any help appreciated. THANKS

We have walnut trees in our pasture and they have never caused a problem nor do the horses mess with them. I will say that we have a bit more under fence for their pasture and unless it's a severe drought year there's always plenty of grass for them to eat. It may be a different story with the walnut trees if they ran out of grass and started chewing on the trees out of boredom.

It's *black* walnut that is the problem. Don't know what the specific difference is or if "regular" walnut also causes problems (or is black the regular kind? lol). I just know black walnut is bad.
