    Sod the azalea ! These plants are extremely toxic to horses (and cats and dogs) - you need to be on the phone to your vet NOW.


    I've pm'd this message to you - please take heed!

    Not in same class, but my dog oiked one out and was using it as a nice chucking & chewing stick until it was noticed after a few hours

    Replanted with two options, plant chose the get up & grow one, went on to thrive for years

    Never give up, if the roots are there it has every chance

    Have to agree with Silvertabby - Azalea is likely to do far more damage to horse than horse to Azalea. The Azalea may shoot from the ground again. The horse won't!

    If the roots are there it should grow,back. As the others say, Azaleas are poisonous. Even if your pony isn't showing symptoms have a word with the vet as it can cause colic and heart problems which could be untreatable if left too late. Did your pony get into somewhere he shouldn't? If not then dig the plant up so it doesn't happen again.
