    DefaultChestnuts

    The stable yard is covered with them at the moment and the pups have been hoovering them up ( no ill effect in fact really firm stools ) !

    Anybody else who has experienced this phenomenon ( that's a joke on a Lab's appetite btw )

    Also, how in hells name can the horses eat the chestnuts INCLUDING the casing whih is too prickly for me to extract the chestnuts without gloves !

    Not with chestnuts, but mine enjoy munching on the gigantic acorns from my pin oak in the RHG. I wish they wouldn't (the acid in them) but no ill effects after six years. Oh... and they wash down the acorns with sprigs from the bamboo grove. Highly sophisticated palates, my guys' ones.

    Acorns are ok? I am constantly asking Maxx to give them to me or trade me as I was not sure.

    Mine like Buckeyes. (real Buckeyes, not the PB chocolate ones) They all like to play with them, must like the feel in their mouths,but Judy starts to eat them so I have to take them away since they are toxic to dogs.

    acorns make oak trees?
    I'd trade too if I could if i am right - oak is considered pretty toxic ...

    Better not to let the dogs graze on them... the tannic acid can cause some severe problems (ulcerations of the intestine, renal tract, gums). While mine take the occasional few (like testing out a new treat) they don't ingest enough to be a problem. The tannic acid makes them VERY bitter (I have eaten a few just to see for myself). Maybe that's why they enjoy the bamboo leaves afterward. Just kidding, there.

    But... yes... better to discourage acorn eating.
