    Default HELP - horse ate hot sauce packet

    AHHHH - as the thread title says.... My horse likes burritos! It was in his muck bucket as I was cleaning out his stall before bed, he stuck his big ole nose inside and started eating my lunch time wrapper that had a half eaten bean and cheese burrito and a plastic hot sauce packet.

    I tried to pull it out of his mouth but it was too late. Oh the worry of these horses!

    Do you think he will be okay?

    Thanks for the laugh... I needed that.

    I can't believe how MAD he was when I yanked what I could from his mouth. I had no idea horses liked Mexican food.

    I knew a horse that loved nothing better than beer and the skin off of Kentucky Fried Chicken. Don't even ask! I have no idea how they found that out.

    Your horse might be a channel-surfing couch potato at heart if . . .

    He'll be fine. Just be glad he didn't do it at a horse show, though. It will test positive.

    Hot sauce tests positive? I wonder what affect it has? I don't think it would be for calming?

    Aisha loved BBQ chicken and would chase you for it. Literally, run after you as you ran away, protecting your chicken. And regular chicken sandwiches as long as there was no mayo or tomatoes. Lettuce was ok.

    My first pony Boom Boom loved dill pickles...the more garlicky the better. That pony had some bad breath. He also liked cat food.

    Just to balance it off, my Siamese cat loves peparoni and tomato soup.

    Keep an eye out for the plastic packet--not much you can do about it, though. Don't stand behind him when he poops for the next day or so.

    If the hot sauce contains capsicum then that is an illegal substance as it is used topically to mask pain or for "soring".

    I remember once at pony club camp a pony ate one of those silver juice bags with no issue. Scared the life out of me though.

    Reminds me of the Seinfeld episode where they fed the carriage horse a can of --was it beans or tuna?

    Reminds me of the time my dog found a bag of those tin foil wrapped chocolate easter eggs. I freaked out and called my vet, he said the chocolate in those eggs won't harm him given his size, but his poop would be sparkly for a few days while the tin foil worked it's way through his system.

    We had one horse steal a bag of peppermints and eat them wrappers and all. Never saw a single wrapper from it.

    I had a horse who would break out of her stall into the feed room. She would always go for the cat food. Ate half a large bag a couple of times!

    My Shetland would rather eat dry cat food than grain.

    OMG, my lab once ate an entire beanie baby. She ripped it to shreads and ate all the little plastic beads inside. I didn't find out until she pooped what looked like fish eggs for two days....
