Happy National Peanut Butter Day!
Did you know that horses can enjoy peanut butter as a special treat? Rich in protein, zinc, magnesium, and B vitamins, a little peanut butter can be a healthy snack for your equine friend. It's also a great way to get medicine into them when needed! Remember, moderation is key - vets recommend only 2 tablespoons per week. Stick to natural peanut butter with only peanuts as the ingredient (no added sugar or sodium!), and always watch for allergies.
I thought Dunkin and I would celebrate with a dollop of PB on some apple slices but he was not impressed ... guess we'll just jam out to some Peanut Butter Jelly Time whilst munching on boring, plain apples.
