I've just bought a bunch of fresh carrots with all the greenery attached and am wondering whether it's safe to give the greens?

Stand back as you feed-- carrot greens make for incredible amounts of very green slobber. You wear what they eat, remember...

Yup! My horses love 'em too. I always rinse them and pull out anything that doesn't look fresh - just to be safe in regards to pesticides and spoilage.

Right - my horse is in for a treat tomorrow then ... and I think I'll wear green to be on the safe side.

Many thanks to you all for the info.
