Apples, Carrots, Celery. We all know what they taste like. Molasses, sugar cubes, even an occasional bagel or potato chip. All treats that we give our horses to be nice to them, an added bonus to their grain and hay each day, and these are things that we are very familiar with because we’ve eaten them ourselves.
But what about treats and cookies made specifically for horses? I mean, they gobble them right out of our hands. But do they really like them? Or are all of our horses simply overgrown pigs?
All joking aside, I try to keep my treat-feeding to a minimum and keep it limited to healthy items. Has anyone seen the video traveling over e-mail recently about Patches the Horse? He’s a full-size horse that rides around in a car (a convertible specifically converted to fit him), and they show him going right through the McDonald’s Drive-Thru and getting a burger! I know that’s not harmful, but I don’t even eat those! I’m sure not going to feed one to a horse!
Back on track – 20 horses tested, 20 horses agreed, Mrs. Pastures Cookies for Horses were yummy! Actually, one day was humorous. I had just finished going down the line of 20 or so horses one by one giving each a cookie, and I walked into the tack room. Willow, one of the mares, well her mom comes in behind me and asks what I just fed her horse? I told her it was a Mrs. Pastures Cookie, why? Because Willow was standing in the aisle way licking her lips!
Is that it?
That’s the review?
What more can we say?
Thumbs up - The horses loved them!
Okay, so we will go further here… I tried one myself… you know… just to see. I mean, it smells sweet, like molasses, I’m sure it tastes that way. It wasn’t too bad! It really tasted exactly as I expected it to. Like a hard oat and molasses cookie. So now I know – I can actually say that I wouldn’t give my horse something that I wouldn’t eat myself!
