Squeezy Buns

Uncle Jimmy's Squeezy Buns have a funny name and a great taste. I was wanting to try them out and my parents got a few samples from a product showing for their feed store.
Critic #1:

Grady is notoriously hard to please. His favorite treats include apples, carrots and alfafa berry treats. That's it. He won't even consider trying anything else. I offered him these and he gobbled it straight up, then asked for more! He didn't even hesitate or try to spit it out.

Critic #2:

Jazz is a pretty easy horse to please. She'll eat almost anything except peppermints. She devoured these without a second thought.

Critic #3:

Katy is the treat monster. You have it, she wants it. She also has the cutest treat face. "Nom, nom, nom!!" Is what she thinks about these treats.

Critic #4:

Jetta loves her alfalfa berry treats, but she hasn't really had the opportunity to be the guinea pig like the rest of my horses. Regardless, these were a winner in her book. She patted me down afterwards just to make sure that I didn't have any left that I was hiding.

Final Decision

I loved these treats. They were really soft, but not sticky, so they were great for the senior horse (Grady) and could be broken into pieces for sharing. They also would come in handy for hiding pills inside. It's basically a molasses treat with a little bit of oats, barley and other yummy stuff inside. They come individually wrapped which is both a good thing and a bad thing. Good because they won't stick together and you can shove a bunch in your pocket without leaving little leftover pieces. Bad because your horses can hear the crinkle and are all over you in a second and then you have leftover trash on your hands. But overall, two hooves up!
