Nothing wrong with eating horse manure. It is quite nutritious and apparently delicious! My dogs eat it on the regular and I don't stop them. They actually eat all kinds of poop. Oh! and my dogs have never had any intestinal parasites and they do not get wormed aside from strategically administered heartworm meds which I started this year because we have had a case of heartworm in our area. I think there is some validity to dogs building immunity to intestinal parasites if they are not wormed.
