How’d you do?

EQUUS - - Eq In brief -

Give your­self one point for ev­ery cor­rect an­swer and tally the re­sults.

0 to 4 points: Time to brush up on your poi­sonous plant knowl­edge. Check out some pre­vi­ous EQUUS ar­ti­cles, in­clud­ing “10 Most Dan­ger­ous Plants for Horses” (EQUUS 320) and “Toxic Trees: Keep Your Horses Safe at Pas­ture” (EQUUS 282), and con­sult with univer­sity and ex­ten­sion agent re­sources.

5 to 8 points: You’ve got some ba­sic plant knowl­edge but could use a re­fresher. Go back to the ques­tions you missed and read up on the plants men­tioned.

9 to 10 points: Con­grat­u­la­tions! You know your way around the pas­ture when it comes to toxic plants. But don’t rest on your lau­rels. Ap­ply your knowl­edge with reg­u­lar walks around your pas­tures and pad­docks to make sure no un­wel­come plants have taken root.
