I float my horses teeth when they need it (usually once a year)... and I feed them half a gallon once a day, but that's it as far as 'treats' and stuff goes. They have NEVER seen the inside of a stall, and have a barn that they can go in and out of at their leisure. If they need something like feed made specifically for fattening them up, then I'll get it. I don't call a vet out for every little thing... for the most part, I'll take care of the problem myself and only call the vet out if it's really serious.
My horses are on pasture 24/7 with free choice hay and grass and we keep them supplied with a salt and mineral lick... that's it.
