Dodson and Horrel Safe and Sound chaff?

I got a small freezer bag full in a goodie bag at the bridleways district meeting last night. I cant feed it to Linton because he doesnt get hard feed and titbits make him take chunks out of anyone who happens to pass by. :roll::oops:

Horses and bunnys have a very similar digestive system, i know their nutrient requirements may be different, but a small bowl as a treat wont harm them will it? It smells so herby :love:

i would have said no (as a horse owner) but only because I think there may be additional vits & mins that might not be apprproiate for buns.
Isn't it molassed? In which case it would be a no from me. Also not sure what the pellets are that it contains?

haylage is slightly wilted grass but not quite as much as silage (which is basically pickled grass) so defo bad for buns tums.
Safe and sound might be ok but I wouldn't risk it
