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

I worried about the Oleander leaves that flank our long driveway that were
planted by my neighbor and were huge, full-grown plants when our house was
built. The corral is only separated by maybe 12 feet from the Oleander row.
In the winter, some leaves do blow in our corral but the horses ignore them.
I think they would have to be pretty hungry to eat them because they must
not taste or smell good or something because they don't touch them. I know
they're supposed to be poisonous to horses but they haven't caused me any
problems YET in 14 years. If I could pull them, out I would for sure! The
neighbor is pretty good about hiring a cutter to come in and swoop down the
row and chop them down, but then I gotta clean 'em up!

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.

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
