Apples, carrots, anything that is as close to au natural as possible. Some people give their horses peppermints, watermelon. Alfalfa cubes too.

My horse likes Manna Pro peppermint bite sized nuggets and Apple Oat Wafers. But he'd pick a good apple over them anyday.

Just make sure they're small enough so they don't choke.

I like to feed watermelon in the summer time. If it's frozen- it turns into a horsey Popsicle! Keeps them busy, and the natural juices can help keep them hydrated. (Plus watermelon is pretty cheap in the summer, so that's always a bonus )

I also love the Dumor Horse Treats, they are a brand made by tractor supply, I only buy the oatmeal raisin kind.

I also feed the normal stuff but my mare does not care for carrots but she LOVES apples.

My horses' favvies are Stud muffins & yes they do taste like a bran muffin (I had to taste test, they smelt good!) The treat they get all the time is horse crunch cookies, comes in big 50lb bag.

I also use the Manna Pro bite size peppermint treats, as well as Mrs. Pastures horse treats. Also, here is a great site for good horse veggies..

I once had a horse who would only eat baby carrots. Even if I would cut the big carrots up for her she still wouldnt touch them.

I recently made a friend in a horse that loved strawberries. I had been eating them and fed him the tops of the strawberries that I didn't eat.

Granted, I don't know that he actually tastes what he eats, he just inhales whatever you offer him, lol. A lot of horses I know enjoy bananas (even the peels!). Most fruits are okay to feed to horses as far as I know. There are some veggies that they shouldn't eat, so just do your research beforehand (as I can't recall any off the top of my head, but I know there are some).
