Re: [RC] Blk Walnut trees poisionous to horses? - Sullivan

I have heard the shavings are toxic when used as bedding.  Frankly, my
horses have lived for 12 years smack in the middle of a walnut orchard
(English grafted into Black).  We do get shoots from the Black bottom parts
that leaf out.  I would think there would be more risk from them eating the
walnuts; I try to get them picked up in the areas where the horses are...and
in the pasture, but there are always some walnuts left...oh well, never had
a problem with it at all!  We had a donkey for two years, never any problems
with them either.

Frankly I would worry more about all the folks that landscape with Oleander,
where the leaves blow into the paddocks or the horses can reach over a fence
and eat them...much more poisonous. Day we moved in here I happily yanked
out about 20 Oleander. Hate the stuff.

Subject: [RC] Blk Walnut trees poisionous to horses?


Can't find the info in my two general reference books, but I was sure I
read
somewhere that black walnut trees are poisionous to horses.  By the way
would
it apply to donkey's?  I have a neighbor who is having trouble keeping
weight
on a young 1-2 yo donkey that he rescued from starvation 4 mos ago.  Any
one
who could help please e-mail me.

Thanks,
Anna
