What effects does weed killer have on horses?
Just what it says does anyone know what effects does weed killer have on horses??
Other than plain ol chemical poisoning, I believe it attacks/ destroys the major organs like liver and kidneys.
What exactly it does and attacks may depend on what chemicals are involved.
In short, nothing good.

Sabino? "Now dont you start...."
Yep, can shut down liver and kidney function, cause drooling, loss of motor coordination, etc.
Why, do you know a horse that got into it, or is someone planning on using it in teh pasture?
We got into a real argument over that at the last place I boarded.
We used horse safe stuff and kept the horses out of the pasture for a few days. My mare evidentaly has sensative skin as she broke out in hives on her neck and lost a lot of hair on her neck, decided that next time we would do the big pasture and not the little one so they could stay in it longer to avoid the residue!
Thanks for the responses, I found out this morning that the field my gelding is in was just sprayed with a weed killer called Graze on? I've done some research on it and have found or haven't found that there is no ill effect on horses, that brand of weed killer was recommended because its one that is apparently safe for animals, but I'm still quit concerned what signs should I be watching for as to a reaction?
We have switched kinds that is supposidly safe to have the horses on right after we spray but to be on the safe side we are leaving horses off the pasture for a day or two to be safe.
It definitely depends on the brand
My horse has grazed on stuff sprayed with RoundUp, which is safe for horses, with no problems.
I don't like to spray any kind of weed killer/bug killer near horses pastures because it can get soaked up by the grass and the horses eat it and as far as I know, its not good.

eeeekk!! I'm really worried about my guy, I just have to watch him really close and monitor any kind of changes.
Graz-on (sp) is sprayed in hay fields to kill weeds. It is not recommended to use that manure from the horse that has eaten hay sprayed with Grazon on flower beds because it will kill the flowers.
The two toughest things in life are failure and success.
