Horse owners – beware of acorn

Posted on | 0 Responses

Every autumn, it is important to re-iterate the importance of keeping horses away from grazing areas where acorns are common. Acorn, the nut of the oak tree, is very palatable to horses but it is poisonous to them and if too much consumed, can lead to death. It is advisable to clear acorns off the ground if the paddock where your horse grazes or kept in has an oak tree and you are concerned about your horse. Unfortunately, earlier this month in Berkshire a mare died of acorn poisoning, which is a reminder to other horse owners to be aware of any kind of vegetation that could be dangerous to all equines.
