Hi, I am wondering what type of treats I can feed to a 5 month old weanling? She is 3/4 QH and 1/4 Andalusian. Breeder said because she's 25% Andalusian, no supplemental feeds are required as she could become overweight quickly. So she will be on a grass/hay diet only. However, I am planning to use Clicker Training with her so would like some good treats. I have heard of feeding Cheerios since they are small, low in sugar, pretty healthy, and cheap. Suggestions please!!
Please no commenting on Clicker Training or feeding treats in general. I believe there is a way to feed treats (they wait for you to give the treat when their nose is pointed straight/away from you) that does not make them mouthy or nippy. Nippy horse=no treats, and that's how I've taught them and they've never become pushy. I'm just looking for a type of treat to feed a weanling to yearling age. (I'm also planning to ask the breeder, but thought I'd poll a larger audience first).
