A TASTE FOR ACORNS?
Any paddock graced with an oak tree will likely be littered with acorns during the autumn months. Horses may accidentally eat them, and some may even develop a taste for them—how much should you worry?
Acorns are toxic to horses, and when consumed in large enough quantities they can cause problems ranging from diarrhea to colic to kidney failure. Acorns are not, however, as toxic as some plants, and many horses seem to have no reaction to them, even after eating large quantities.
