When my 14.3hh Dales Pony x Welsh horse is out in the field, she eats thin twigs and bark off trees! Could this cause her any problems and if so, what would they be?
Generally the only harm done when horses eat is to the structures they are eating! If you think about it, wild horses out all the time, have to bite off everything that eat.
Domesticated horses, especially in the winter, have some or even all of their food in a form that does not need biting off.
Hay, haylage, manger feeds, all need no biting. Chewing, yes, but not actually biting off as the grazing does.
It is as if they have to make up for this lack by tucking into any timber they can get hold of.
Horses cannot digest wood, but they get some nutrients from the soft structures in twigs and bark. They especially like willow and fruit trees.
Never let your horse eat wood or twigs from poisonous trees such as laburnum, rhododendron, and especially not yew, all parts of which including the actual wood, are poisonous. Too much Leylandii is not good for them either.

High Offley Stud is a small yard specialising in breeding, buying, selling and producing all kinds of horses and ponies. Based in Staffordshire.
We look to sell good, straight and sensibly priced horses and ponies, most of them come from private homes in Ireland.
We run this business very much off my good reputation and it`s very important to me to match good horses with suitable homes, I will always be completely honest about all the animals here and am happy to discuss the suitability of any of my horses to your needs.
As well as my many happy customers across the country, I have also supplied horses to my local hunt, pony club, riding club and riding school, The Police Force and all are doing very well and are very well loved, which shows me I must be doing my job well :)
Please feel free to contact me to discuss any of your requirements;
