There are about 1000 poisonous plants in Australia. Of course, not all of them will cause harm to your horse but it’s better to be safe than sorry.
- Bored or hungry horses are more likely to eat plants they otherwise would leave alone – make sure your horse is well-fed and well-stimulated.
- Check your paddocks for potentially hazardous plants.
- To help you recognise the risks, the Australian Government’s Rural Industries and Research Corporation has produced a Plants Poisonous to Horses field guide. You can download it here
