how about carrots? just use thinner string (I think someone suggested bailing twine) and do the same thig

No he is SUPER picky lol. He'll only eat home baked horse cookies, those cheap arse apple wafers and frosted oatmeal people cookies. You know, the ones you get for like $1 at the store lol.

He'll only eat carrots if I chop them up or shave them into his grain with molasses and then "steam" them for about 15 minutes.

Sock might just be a tad bit spoiled...

I tried this today, and hung it in the doorway of Excel's stall. He hasn't even touched it....I'm beginning to think he's not a horse....

Oh my. It took about 2 months for my little mustang to eat things like carrots and apples and he would take tiny bites like a baby bite. And my dog wouldn't eat chicken today and smelled jerky the other.... some days I think he's not a dog...

Neither Thoroughbred would touch it....apparently, such childish play is beneath them. Arty doesn't care....(by the way, he did eventually get it by pressing it against the stall frame. The video cut off before then )

Because of a family members job we can have as many turnips and apples, and carrots that are not prefect for sale. So we drill holes in them and string them together, or only one in trees and stall. It is entertaining for everyone.

Ha!! thats my horse too. I gave him a carrot the other day and he crunched it and let it fall out of his mouth. Then refused to take anything else- mr. attitude. I left an apple cut in quarters in his bucket and he didn't touch it.

I don't know about him.
But give him an apple cookie or his pellet feed and he is all over it. :)

My guy would love this! He loves everything including banana slices; if they include the peel. His butt is so big that I put a pile of different treats on it to grab as rewards while working aroud the place. It works great for the horse, but the goat won't eat anything that's been on the horse's butt or in my back pocket. It's rather insulting, really.
