Apples, Carrots, Graham Crackers & Marshmallows...OH MY! Yes....your horse can eat all that...but hold the chocolate!
Keep the candy bars for yourself, and enjoy!
Why, oh why does it have to be that way?
As most people know, you should always avoid giving chocolate to your dogs. But did you know that your horses are also sensitive to the toxic chemical found in chocolate called theobromine?
You should also keep your horse away from milk products —like: ice cream, cheese, and even yogurt.
I know, right? Yikes! Of course, if you're anything like us, you’ve perhaps heard that yogurt is good for your horse because it’s a probiotic. But it does contain lactose and grown horses are lactose intolerant.
In turn, it can cause your horse to get diarrhea! And that can cause other serious complications, that can lead to severe dehydration and even death.
