Spirulina Dream

Would you feed this to your horse as a treat? I have some and they... aren't good. I do not want to just throw them away, but I can't donate them because my food pantries are still closed. :/

If your horse likes them I don't see anything in them they can't have.

Some horse people change their horse, they change their tack and discipline, they change their instructor; they never change themselves.

There might be a little more sugar in there than ideal, but looking at the ingredients I would definitely try giving it to my horses.

Basically not quite a tablespoon of sugar.

Wait a minute...
You say they are no good.
Are they buggy or are they just recently expired otherwise not contaminated or bug filled?


Depending upon that answer would dictate to me whether I would risk giving to my horse who can't vomit..

FWIW I read that to mean that they just didn't taste very good.

I'm with AC . I took it to mean she didn't like them. I assume fresh in date and unopened box as she was going to donate but food pantry is closed.

Yep. I do not like the taste. I like Cashews, Sunflower Seeds, Dates, Almonds, and Flax, but apparently not all together...

I'll see if my horse likes it. If not, I'll just compost it or something...

I would pick out the cashews and eat them actually.

I would not see a problem feeding them as treats if they are not moldy. I would not feed bucketfuls at once. That could make them sick.

If I had them, I would probably see if my horses liked them.
