Asked December 8, 2016, 2:33 PM EST

Hello, I recently looked at a Home for Purchace to take our Horse and a large portion of the Property is covered in this weed. It is low to the ground and looks Invasive. Could you please Identify this and is it Poisonous to Horses? Thank You, Gary

The weed is called creeping charlie or ground ivy,it can be invasive but is not poisonous to horses. In fact, it is an edible weed some people will add it to a salad. https://njaes.rutgers.edu/pubs/fs938/
