    My first pony loved dog food; we used to put him on a tether to graze in our backyard...always had to put up the dog bowls or he'd go to town on them. Never fed him hot dogs, but I bet he would have eaten one:P

    I think there a lot of better and healthier treats you can give your horse than a hot dog. I wouldn't dream of feeding our horses hot dogs, but I guess if that's what you want to feed them, it's your perogative.

    Hot dog? As in, like a sausage?

    I'd never feed my horses those. I'm intrigued though, do some horses actually like them?

    Some horses will eat anything, especially if it's got a salty taste (hence the dog food being so popular with Sara's pony.) My mom had a trail horse who would refuse to budge if he heard her rustling around on his back with a food-like substance until she offered some to him. He even at a bologna sandwich one day.

    Of course, just because they'll eat it doesn't mean you ought to feed it to them. Horses are not designed to consume meat. Then again, there are those who'd argue that hot dogs are not meat

    You should be very careful in what you feed your horse!! Giving them too much animal protein such as a hot dog or dog food can actually cause brain damage or even kill your horse.

    A horse is a herbavore and is not meant to eat animal protein. There are many many vegetable/grain treats that you can give your horse that will not harm him. I would suggest one of those.

I don't feed it to her often enough to do any damage...i did find she doesn't like m&ms with peanuts...just reagular.well the phrase that comes to mind is "everything in moderation"
