Are these okay treats?

I work at a holistic pet food store and we recently got this brand of dog cookies in (Wet Noses). They're completely organic, wheat free and meat free and come in tons of flavours. Long story short I noticed the carrot and apple flavour and thought the horse I lease might like them!


I don't really see why I couldn't give them, but I'm pretty new to the horse game so I just wanted to make sure they're alright beforehand!

I don't see anything in the ingredient list that would be harmful. Heck you could give them to your kids those are better then the ingredients I have read on the cereal boxes.

Hahaha like I was saying to my coworker today, I'm probably better off snacking on these than regular granola bars.

Pretty clean treats.

I don't see why you couldn't give them to your horses (or eat them yourself, haha).

I know people who will feed human food as treats! I think those treats are just fine.

Many years ago my husband ate half a box of LivaSnaps dog treats before he found out they weren't for the humans.
I wondered why the bowl I dumped them in was getting empty fast. He did say they were kind of bland...but he is still kicking.
If your horses start sitting on the ground practicing "personal hygiene" I'd probably discontinue feeding them. : )
