Healthy Pasture for Healthy Horses

Horse property owners in the Smoky Mountains of Western North Carolina know that weeds will invade the best managed pasture.  It is, therefore, no surprise to horse owners that constant vigilance is required to maintain the health of any horse pasture.

Most weeds are not poisonous for horses.  Nevertheless, if allowed to dominate a horse pasture the presence of any type of weed will reduce the quality of the forage and diminish the nutritional value for the horses.

Poisonous varieties can range from mildly toxic to lethal.  It is important for horse owners to be able to identify the species that can be a threat to the health and even the life of the horse.

The Horse: Your Guide to Equine Health Care, published by the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture produced a slide presentation illustrating some of the more common weeds found in pastures in the Appalachian regions of North Carolina.

Taking a moment to review the slide presentation to familiarize yourself with the common weeds in the Western North Carolina area will provide guidance for pasture improvement that will increase your horse property value but more importantly, it might just save the life of your horse.

Though poisonous the yellow Buttercup you see on the off side of the horse in the picture above tastes so bad that fortunately, he avoids eating it
