Question: Are gladiolas poisonous to horses? (Can I plant them near where I keep my 25 horses penned?

Answer: Glads are included in the list of plants with some potential for toxicity to horses. Most toxic plants are broad-leaved. Horses normally don't relish broad-leaved weeds, but they do if grass forage is limited. Horses tend to browse weeds more when on a higher-concentrate, low-fiber ration. Having a few toxic plants available does not mean there is an acute problem. However, before planting glads where your horses can access them, you might want to check with your Vet.
