Toxic grasses/plants in Texas (horse grazing)

Asked June 17, 2013, 11:25 AM EDT

Is there a publication or web address that I can read relating to problems encountered with horses grazing in pastures that contain toxic weeds/plants/grasses? I am having several horses exhibit colic type symptoms that I believe are due to ingestion of some weed/plant in my pasture.
Thank You-Mary

I would recommend visiting: http://essmextension.tamu.edu/plants/?collection=toxics or http://agrilifebookstore.org there is a book available through the AgriLife Bookstore: B-6105 Toxic Plants of Texas
