BEWARE OF BLACK WAL­NUT

EQUUS - - Special Report -

Stand­ing on wood shav­ings that con­tain as lit­tle as 20 per­cent black wal­nut (Juglans ni­gra) wood can in­duce acute lamini­tis within hours. This threat is well-known, how­ever, so bed­ding prod­ucts pack­aged for horses never con­tain black wal­nut shav­ings. But if you pur­chase bulk shav­ings or re­lated prod­ucts from lo­cal sup­pli­ers, make cer­tain they know you can­not ac­cept ship­ments that con­tain black wal­nut. Black wal­nut wood has a dis­tinc­tive dark brown color that will stand out against lighter woods.
