Buttercups are beautiful but deadly
The brilliant yellow fields of buttercups are highly dangerous to animals when eaten, especially to horses.
They are poisonous, often causing colic and death.
The animals do not want them and avoid unless desperately hungry.
We have not seen such an abundance of yellow in grass fields ever before. With the late spring, they have sprung up in profusion if the the hay is late in being harvested.
The grass and buttercups should be cut down and destroyed immediately. The fields should be plowed and reseeded as quickly as possible.
