Is It Okay For Horses To Eat Grapes?

The other day, I noticed my gelding had his head stuck in a bush of grapes and I was wondering if it's okay for him to have them?

Grapes are dangerous for dogs...they can make them very sick if they eat enough...raisins too...for this reason, I would not feed them to horses either.

I believe grapes are fine for horses, obviously you don't want your horse to gorge himself on them like anything else. Yes grapes are bad for dogs, but that doesn't mean they are bad for horses, if that were the case they would be bad for people also. I would ask your vet to be sure but everything I have read says they are fine.

Yes, SEEDLESS grapes are fine. Don't feed more than a few handfulls- don't want them to colic from the new addition to food!
