It all depends on the horse really - we have one that thinks everything except for horse food is poison and just chews it a little and spits it out (carrots, horse cookies, apples hates them!) The other horse eats anything really - she tries to spill sodas and beers to get a sip, will snag a mouthful of french fries if you aren't looking (quick as lightening over my shoulder in and out and my fries were ruined that day!) I guess there's obviously some things they shouldn't have, and all things in moderation, but try to find something they love and stick with that (french fries for Nela apparently)
