Prickly 2

22 02 2021

It’s no joke to say that the horses depend on – and even like – greasewood, even in its prickly winter phase. (Actually, it’s never not prickly, but in the warm months, at least it has a little succulent-type “bud” or “leaf” that makes it (maybe?) more palatable.)

It sure is amazing how God’s critters are so self sufficient.

Yes. When they don’t have much else, they have greasewood.

I thought greasewood was toxic to horses. Do they only eat new growth?

Apparently not. They eat in year-round! There’s no growth on the greasewood right now. They’ll browse on greasewood even when there IS grass all around them. I call it their candy or ice cream. šŸ™‚

Greasewood is precious for the horses!
