Sainfoin

 Feed Sparingly
  • 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.
