Fire Stables is a certified member of Monarch Watch through the University of Kansas. We support the Monarch life cycle by carefully managing our milkweed plants and educating other equestrian facilities on how to do the same.  Although milkweed is a neurotoxin, most horses have too many other delicious options in a well managed pasture to eat it. There is a lot of confusion, and misinformation about the many varieties of this plant, and learning about how the Monarchs use it is fascinating and educational.
