wow u must like ur horse alt to spend that much buying it choclate.

I'm not 100% sure but i got told that smally amounts of chocolate will not do any harm to your horse an i have given horses chocolate before. But be careful because if they eat alot (like ALOT) they could get colic. but ur horse should be fine if you give it to her in small amounts ocasionally.

I'm not sure about horses but I know dogs aren't to have it. I don't know if its the caffeine in it or what. I'm not a great believer in giving horses people food, just don't want to take a chance. I think if I spent $200 on chocolate I would want to eat it myself.

I think she'd like $200 worth of bran mashes, or $200 worth of hay, or $200 worth of equine massage, or $200 worth of anything else "horsey", more than she'll like the chocolate. At least I would if I were a horse! It's your money so spend it how you want...if it were my money, I'd buy a 50 cent candy bar for myself and put the remaining $199.50 towards something more practical.

Better yet....spend $50 on the chocolate and save the other $150 for the equine dentist to fix her teeth after she gets cavities from eating so much chocolate! LOL!!! :P
