My horse has the proper amount of grains, grass and hay. She always prefers to eat the fronds of the Queen palms. Are those okay for them to eat?

So from what I see, Queen palms are not toxic. They aren’t toxic to humans and I’ve read stories of other horses liking them too.
This article starts out with “The Queen Palm and I got off on the wrong frond. Before I met one I had read it was toxic. There are a few toxic palms but the Queen Palm is not one of them.” http://www.eattheweeds.com/queen-palm-2/
