- Common Name: Sainfoin
- Latin Name: Onobrychis viciifolia; Onobrychis spp.
- Family Name: Fabaceae/Leguminosae (Pea family)
Although non-toxic, Sainfoin is high in tannins and a legume (and therefore also high in protein), and so would be best offered as only a very small part of a varied diet.
It is easily distinguished from other relatives in the legume family by its pink flowers with distinctive red veins in the petals.
