Poison!

During late summer and early fall, showy crotalaria blooms can be seen throughout the Southeast.  As beautiful as these tall blooms are, they are TOXIC PLANTS that can be DEADLY TO YOUR HORSE.  We have been told that ONE MOUTHFUL of this plant can kill a horse.

 There is no treatment for crotalaria poisoning. 

Whether the crotalaria is green or has been dried in hay, ALL PARTS OF THE PLANT ARE POISONOUS.  Poisoning comes from an animal consuming crotalaria, or any hay contaminated with crotalaria, or from grain that is contaminated with dried crotalaria seed.

 

Crotalaria: 

One mouthful can kill a horse.
