While we don’t routinely let our horses snack on the landscaping at our homes, often times our barns are embellished with the same plants we would find at home. As our lawns and landscapes come back to life after a long winter hibernation, be aware of what plants pose a problem for your horse.

Here is a reminder of those most likely to cross your path, and a reminder of what they look like.  For a more complete list, take a look at the ASPCA’s website.
