Found this in our pasture- is it safe for horses? I have never seen it before.

I cannot tell from looking at this image. I would recommend you take it in to your County Extension Office, and see if someone there can help you. If you can take a leaf, and stem in, as well as the berries, what will help the educator identify the plant.

Good luck.

Hi -- do a google image search for "pokeberry" or "pokeweed" and see if you agree that is what it was/is. I think that's what it is. This is a toxic plant, so NO, do NOT let your horses, other animals, or people eat it.
