My horse may have eaten a rotten apple?

While I was out with one of my horses a friend of mine was hanging out with the others and she told me the inside of the apple looked rotten. She threw it away after she discovered this but he still took a bite out of it. Should I be concerned about this? Thanks for the help!

It should pose no problem. If you are concerned, just keep an extra eye on him for the next few hours for any sign of belly-ache.

A rotten apple is delicious to a horse!! You don't have to worry. Except, he will simply beg for another!!

As stated above, one bite of a rotten apple shouldnt cause any issues. :)

We always get the bruised apples that people don't want to buy for free from the market for our mares. Like others have posted, there is nothing wrong with feeding them to your horse.
