Horses don’t eat the following:

 Living in the heart of a horsey area, we are often asked what horses don’t eat.

I asked a friend who has many horses and is an avid gardener.

This is her list.


Searsia lancea

Olea Africana

Acacia sieberana

Acacia karoo

Any thorn tree will be avoided


Agapanthus blue and white

Aloes – all the prickly ones

Clivia miniata

Dietes grandiflora

Dietes bicolor

Dietes iridoides

All succulents
