My horse loves these beet treats and it’s a treat he can eat being metabolically challenged!
I have tried everything to hide my mares pill in for her Cushing’s and it works for a few times and then she refuses what ever it is. I heard that these work great for hiding the nasty taste of the pill so I ordered a small back and quarter the muffing and make 2 small balls, one with the pill and the other to feed right after the pill one. She sucks them out of my hand so fast. It’s made my life so much easier now that she will take her meds daily. So she only gets half of a muffin a day. They are soft enough to roll into 2 balls. I highly recommend them.
I've never met a horse who didn't love these. :)
I use these to provide pills to my Cushings mare (they are a little high on the NSC, 12-15%). If you pop them in the microwave just long enough to soften, they tear apart easily and I can make 4 little balls with her pills inside out of one of these treats. They store well this way and she takes her meds in this form with no issue. Because of her Cushings, I only provide these for giving her pill and not as general treats, though she would gladly take it either way. Chewy has the best price for the 6lb bag by a long margin as well.
I have been buying the German Muffins for over a year. My order goes nuts over them. They are big so I break them up into 4 pieces. I started buying the beet version when my horse became lamanitic one spring and he loves them just as well. They smell great! The only con is they get really hard in cold weather.
Ok, I cannot deny, my horse shark mouths these treats and they do smell amazing. My concern was, he liked them so much that I was afraid he was not going to take the time to chew them very well before looking for another one. They are about the size of a little bit larger than a golf ball and very, VERY firm but not crunchy. I fed him one and like I said he ate it so fast I started to worry about choke if he didn't chew them much. I have been through choke with a horse before so that is probably why I got paranoid about them. I took them home and have cut them in half (they were tough to cut with my meat cleaver as well) and I may end up even cutting them into fourths.....there is no doubt that my horse finds them tasty. Even though I can see he loves them, I think will pass on buying another bag....I just worry about the choke factor too much.
Great product, got 2 for less than the price of 1 at my local feed store, and my horse loves them. Good training tool.
Both of my guys gobbled these up. They are large-ish so I split them In half. Not as soft as Mrs. Pastures which i can use to hide pills but delicious enough that I re-ordered for treat variety.
Rocky loves Beet Treats! He asked for a larger bag!
My horses love treats but one of them has founder so this is a good alternative.
