Cheyaut is right, and your horse would have to eat a LOT of chocolate to get sick. It is dose dependant (like all toxins) and the amount to harm a dog of say, 50 lbs would be like a 2 lb box of dark chocolate truffles (because it is actually cocoa that has the compound). I know there are species differences and don't have my toxicology notes on me but I doubt that a little taste of chocolate is going to make your girl ill. In the future though, tell your niece to stick with carrots!
