Re: [RC] mulberries - Typef

I have no experience with mulberries that have fruit. But we had fruitless
mulberry trees when I was a kid. The horses always got the prunings and kept
the trees pruned themselves as far as they could reach. Never saw any ill
effects and they absolutely loved them. My dad would saw the big branches
down to the traditional nub and throw them in the corral. When the horses
were done, all that was left was a very clean stick!

Does anybody have experience with mulberries and horses eating them?  I
have a huge mulberry tree in my corral, which adjoins the pasture.
Unfortunately, it drops fruit from spring until about now, roughly 6
months of the year.  I block off the area because the horses love the
berries and I don't want them to get sick from eating too many.  At
some point our weather here in the central valley of CA will hopefully
cool down and we'll get some rain.  The way to the overhang for the
horses is via the mulberry tree.  Right now the berries that have
dropped all summer long are all over the ground and are kind of dried
up.  I let the horses in to see if they would eat them and of course
they did.  Am I being paranoid to think they will get sick form eating
too many?
