[RC] headtossing/ alsike clover - Ridecamp Guest

Please Reply to: wendy maas fastsneasker@xxxxxxx or ridecamp@xxxxxxxxxxxxx

My 4 horses were poisoned last year from Alsike clover and Tall fescue, 
Kentucky 31. I hired a commercial farmer to plant my pasture and found out 
after my horses got really sick that he had planted a Forge mix rather than a 
horse mix. One of the horses developed sever head tossing. When sunlight would 
beam on his nose you thought he was stung by a bee. This particular horse did 
not develop any blisters on his white skin. He has been in a dry lot for almost 
a year and there are no signs of head tossing. 2 of my 4 horses were diagnosed 
with sever liver damage, through biopsies. Has anyone else experienced fibrosis 
of the liver from Alsike poisoning, will they ever be the same again?
