The British Horse Society recommend that you have a worming programme in place for your horse[s] – They say:

Parasitic worms can adversely affect the health and well-being of horses and ponies of all ages. These internal parasites can do irreversible damage to the gut and other organs and be responsible for poor body condition, colic and, in serious cases, fatalities

Horse Health – Sycamore seeds linked to horse deaths

Killyless Stores Ballymena have many customers who love horses. A study recently investigated Atypical Myopathy – which causes death in horses. The study was able to connect the disease, which causes massive muscle damage and kidney failure, to the seeds from the Sycamore tree. Animal may seem sick and colicky and are often sadly found dead.

The University of Leige carried out the study and found that most horse with atypical myopathy had been kept in pastures which had wood, bark and dead wood on the ground. Sycamore trees were identified in each instance and researchers believe that the horses must have ate the seeds due to a lack of food available.

Researchers recommend that horse owner ensure that their horses have plenty of food available meaning that they won;t be tempted to ingest the seeds instead.
