I am extremely proud to share with you my latest article for US Equestrian magazine! In it I share advice on toxic pasture plants from such talented individuals as Dr. Neil Rhodes, University of Tennessee Institute of Agriculture Department of Plant Sciences, Dr. Luke Fallon, Hagyard Equine Medical Institute, and Dr. Bob Hillman, a retired veterinarian with Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine. As always, I appreciate the opportunities given to me by Glenye Oakford, Senior Content Editor with US Equestrian magazine. If you’re concerned about toxic plants in your pastures, this article is for you. My work begins on page 86. https://issuu.com/equestrian/docs/fall_19_issuu?e=1346541/31359866
