What kind of treats to give a pony that are sugar free?
The pony my daughter takes lessons on has to have sugar free treats. Any suggestions on what she can have that she would like? I have tried to find the peppermints, but can't in the stores...They aren't allowed to have chocolate are they??? butterscotch? I got cookies and she doesn't like them! Is there anything they can't have that will make them sick?
My mare is on a diet right now and the vet restricted treats to sugar-free only. The ones I've found that she really likes are peppermints & also butterscotch (that's a new one she LOVES) :-) They were both at the local supermarket...here's a good website if you want to stock up:
Sugar Free Candy, Sugar Free Lollipops, Diabetic Candy
They have a hard candy mix that I'll bet the pony will LOVE! I want to get the IBC root beer hard candy and see what my pony thinks about it, I love letting her try out new treats! :-)
what about just carrots?? there is natural sugar in them, but would that be ok?
as everyone said...carrots! I find most horses perfer juicey carrots to horse treats anyday!
None of my horses will eat carrots :(
Even my dogs adore carrots!
My horses don't even like apples. But one of my colts like dorrito chips.
Im assuming the pony had or has laminitis/founder. In which case carrots are an absolute NO-NO! Carrots are chocked full of sugar.
beet treats for horses - emerald valley equine horses
dried split peas work good

hay cubes....especially those little alfalfa hay cubes
Thanks hotreddun! I hope she likes them!
Carrots are a BIG no-no...
