Poisonous Plants

Prevention is better than cure:

  • Pull out Ragwort and remove any acorns from paddocks.

  • Check paddock boundaries for evidence of poisonous plants, check in hedges and on the other side of the boundary to a distance a horse could reach.

  • Make sure that your boundaries are secure.

  • Break open hay bales and discard any plants that you cannot identify.

If you suspect poisoning always call your vet immediately.
