I'd like to find an invasive starchy plant for horse grazing. Grass is too high in sugar and clover and other legumes are too high in protein, both of which can cause major problems for horses who don't work much, which mine don't.
Anybody know of anything that'd fit the bill? Even a bush or tree that could be coppiced and thrown in would be alright but I was only able to find high protein tree leaves.
