    I have a gelding that is new to me......trying different treats out on him. Does not like carrots or apples only grain treats, After our last ride I reached into my pocket and I felt a milkbone dog biscuit that I had brought along for the dog......i thought to myself "i wonder"? horse about ate my fingers trying to get it in his mouth. He loved it! He kept tossing his head up and down and moving his lips like mr. Ed! Think these will hurt him at all? I guess if dogs can eat them so can horses! What do you think?

    I'm not sure what's in a milkbone treat, but I'd check the ingredient list. Dogs and horses are at pretty opposite ends of the food spectrum, so I wouldn't assume it's safe for a horse just because it's safe for a dog.
