Our Story

People often ask how we got started with A to Z Horse Cookies.

A is for Apache, Z is for Zenne – our horses

Zenne, Marie’s horse, is an older mare and still full of beans; she has not missed a meal in 23 years and sure gives her Auntie a holler when I walk by. She is the biggest fan of our two brands of horse cookies.

My horse Apache was the inspiration for these two unique brands of horse cookies. We don’t call them horse treats because we had something far healthier in mind. They have a functionality all their own and stand alone in the marketplace.

Unfortunately, Mr. Apache lost an eye at 6 years old, developed TMJ and fractured several teeth. His vet said no more hard treats including carrots.

I was in animal health pharmaceutical sales some years back, and I asked my equine dentist about horse’s dental care. He explained that just like humans, horses start to lose enamel at the age of 15 as they age. If not taken care of properly when they are young they can suffer repercussions later in life.

If you think about horses in the wild, they do not eat hard foods, they graze all day long on natural grasses, as our horses should. So we set out to create a very healthy softer cookie with a purpose and meaning behind it.

Our cookies are softer – Wheat, Corn, Soy and Alfalfa free

We are the first in the country to be able to say that they are LOW CARB, LOW SUGAR, and we have the lab analysis including calories to show this. All our grains are grown in the USA and our products are MADE IN THE USA. If you look on the side of our container, we have very easy simple ingredients that a 5 year old can understand. Simple easy…

The Original Flavor low sugar Molasses cookie can also be used as a pill popper with ease. You just place a pill in the cookie, give her a squeeze and down the hatch. Your horse would never know what went down. How many times have we stared at our traditional bran mash and said “Well, CA-CHING CA-CHING!” Dollars lost! Although, designed for all horses in mind, this is its true function and purpose.

The Blonde Bits of Health has Cinnamon in it. In recent studies, cinnamon has been shown to help with Insulin Resistance (wholehorse.com/cinnamon.html).

Both cookies are made with the finest human grade ingredients and yes, you can have a cookie with your best friend! Please, take a nibble and and you will see what all the hoopla is about!!

Thank you for letting us share our story with you. We know that you and your horse will enjoy these cookies for many years to come.

Thank you for supporting A to Z Horse Cookies!

Enjoy!
