BRIEF: Is Mountain Laurel toxic to horses?

It is my understanding that mountain laurel is toxic to horses if ingested.I tried to find information on this page but could not.We live in FL and travel to the mountains sometimes to ride.


Yes, these would be poisonous to horses if they ate them, since the laurels, rhododendrons, azaleas, etc. all contain adromedotoxins. Do your horses like to browse these?
