Hi there. Thanks for the question.let me see if I can help. Such a small amount should not be a problem. It might cause a little GI irritation so watch for signs of colic and call a vet right away if the horse won't eat or gets diarrhea.....but my expectation is the horse will be fine. I hope this helps. Best of luck.
