Customer Testimonials

These are just some of the comments we have received from our customers over the years:

I just placed my order for 4 different bags.  My girls get 2 treats each in the morning when I go out to feed them.  They both line up at the fence and push each other out of the way to get the treats.  They seem to love all flavors.  ~Karen S

Here’s the horse that literally does not let anyone or anything come between him and his Nicker Treats! 

His name is Black Jack and he would love to get posted.  He a regular social butterfly with a playful inquisitive personality.  Today I turned him out in the yard instead of the arena (1.5 acres) and he wound up on my front porch.  I’m very grateful that he didn’t go through and break a leg because the porch is an old style wooden one.

No matter where he is (usually out of sight), he comes when I call him because I give him Nicker treats as a reward for coming.  That’s how I got him in from tearing around the yard and that’s how I got him to come because the trimmer was here.  Yes, he’s a playful curious glutton!

Sue, thanks for your contribution to the horse world by making these treats available.  I’m very picky about what I give him because he has all the earmarks for turning IR or getting Cushings and he’s 18 years old.  And…there just isn’t anything out there safe.  Yours are the only treats I use.  In fact, I found you because Skode’s went out of business.

So, don’t go out of business.

I can personally attest to how good an anti inflammatory turmeric is. If you need the convenience of a powder, Nicker Treats Low Carb Horse Cookies now does the work for you, and the proceeds benefit rescue horses. Turmeric is tremendous for people, horses, and dogs with inflammation issues.

Thanks to my buddy Kristin Finn for sending my stallion Mahroufs Hafid Nicker Treats while he was recovering from spending 18 days Uga Vet School last year! And then to find out they are made here in my own back yard. Hafid has EMS and Cushings and I almost lost him last year. Fit as a fiddle now, he only gets Nickers Treats-he prefers the peppermint flavor!

Has your horse tried Nicker Treats Low Carb Horse Cookies yet? Horses love them, and they are low carb with great ingredients!! Great for clicker training, if you want to limit the calories!

The treats are a really big part of my weight reduction plan for an obese dwarf mini with IR. They are the PERFECT size to go inside a rolling toy called a "Nose It" that dispenses a tidbit every so often. The mini will actively work that toy, covering a lot of ground therefore getting some exercise, until she gets the last treat.

I wanted to let you know that I have your Nicker treats on my horses “Wish Lists” for the holidays, in hopes that they get purchased for them J  If not, of course I will be placing an order!  Each horse has a page on my Website, with their holiday wish list items listed and a link to where they can be purchased!

My horse LOVED all the different flavors of these treats. I think he liked the Alfalfa Fenugreek ones the best. Thank you so much for  offering such a healthy alternative for our babies and thanks to my wonderful farrier Marian Figley for turning me onto these!

Thank you!

Just a note to tell you that Secret LOVES your Cushings Fenugreek treats, and I love finally finding a low-carb treat that she will actually eat.  I have already started her on chasteberry as a supplement, based on the research I’ve read about, and now I have a palatable way to feed it to her.  Thanks a million!

Before trying Nicker Treats:

My horse, Swift, was diagnosed last summer with Cushings and IR after almost foundering.  I have tried several IR treats to date, such as Skode’s, Withers & Withers, and one whose name now escapes me, but it was very herbal.  Basically he spits them out.  The W&W were too chalky/chewy and sickeningly sweet tasting due to the Stevia in them.  The Skode’s tasted good to me and were crunchy (good) but Swift turned down two flavors. (I’m pretty sure it’s because they are not sweet.)  The third was a spit out for both of us.  Oh dear! 

His favorite treats before his diagnosis were carrots and crunchy carrot or peppermint treats.  So, in a nut shell, he likes crunchy, sweet, and carroty or minty texture and flavor.   He seems to hate flax seed, so it would have to be disguised.  His diet consists of Well/Solve Low Starch/  (which I also use as a treat because he likes it) and hay.  Totally off grass. 

I’d like to try your treats on the off-chance that he will go for them!  I’m wondering if I could buy some samples before I commit to a larger quantity.  Because of the flax seed dislike, would the alfalfa be better?  Or is it too high in sugar/starch?  Should I try some of each formula?  They all appear low sugar and starch.  As far as flavors go, the Fab Fenugreek and the Provocative Peppermint sound good!  Do they have a somewhat sweet taste?   

I need your advice before I buy any more treats!

After trying Nicker Treats:

Swift is one happy horse!!  He likes all the flavors.  I’ll order some this weekend.  You work magic with the grains and herbs.  Thanks a lot.  Jude

I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for the free sample of Nicker Treats for Mikey. He is very finicky and I'm never sure if he'll like a new treat I offer him, but he absolutely loves the Provocative Peppermint treats with the Fenugreek and Chaste Berry for Cushings! We still have some left in our sample bag, but I will certainly be ordering more. I love knowing that I'm able to give him a treat that is both good for him and that he loves.Thank you so much!

My Morgan mare was diagnosed with Cushings last Spring, and I have been unable to find a treat that she is able to have and likes since then.  Thank you for giving her the opportunity to have treats again!

Thank you for the generous sample of your peppermint Nicker Treats.  My horse LOVES them!  I am placing an order for 12 more bags.

I am so glad I found your web site.  I have tried every 'low starch' treat on the market, and Shadow had no interest in them at all.  Thanks to your free sample offer, I was able to try your treats without making a financial investment.  Shadow loves the Fenugreek Nicker Treats, and I can finally feel good about giving him what he wants without worrying about his insulin level spiking.

I have been using Nicker Treats for clicker training my warmblood gelding. I don't have to worry about giving him so many treats, even though he has a metabolic disorder.  What a relief!

I ordered one of every flavor to see which my horse preferred, and she loved them all!  Your treats are a win-win for both me and Honey.  Thank you.
