    How is it poisionous for Horses?

    post 1m growth they are fine **) Very high in levels of Vit b17 - and in high levels can be toxic.

    But like anything else - must be fed in the appropriate amounts.

    Their is absolutely no harm in feeding sorghum grain **)

    then here is the info the op will need to determine which one it is and how it should be harvested correctly to feed to horses....not worth the risk in my book with the other hays available that have little risk

    Poisonous Plants
    Horse Forage and Forage Management

    I do agree with you ghost - their are certainly more things out their that are potentially more availiable than sorghum that are easier to feed **)

    The managment of feeding sorghum pasture is higher than other pastures :)
