    We have a juicer so I often make fresh carrot/apple juice with a slice of fresh ginger in the mornings. The left over dry pulp goes to the chickens. I was carrying out a bowl full one day and tried to give some to the horses. They all spit it out except Vida, she thought it was mighty tasty even without the juice.
    She also gets the peppermint candy that they give out at Sonic

    Every time I carry my coffee or tea out to the barn or pasture, Kay goes for it. She loves the smell. She won't touch a carrot and is iffy about apples. She wont even touch a Lik it. I think she's either just severly confused or just like her momma. LOL I'll have to try the peppermint and hard candies.

    Ricci will eat darn near anything. If it comes in a wrapper she'll eat it. Peppermints, skittles, cinnamon candy, etc etc.

    Gracie, my 9 month old, doesn't like ANYTHING that isn't meant for horses. At least nothing that I've found. She spits peppermints out, she doesn't go nuts for carrots or apples but she'll eat them. To be mean, I gave her a cinnamon candy and she got so mad, haha. At least she's willing to try anything, right?

    I once shared a bean burrito with a horse. =]

    I also knew a horse that was CRAZY about smarties.

    I never worry about the sugar or anything like that in the candy I give, because they only get a piece maybe once every two months, usually just the candy they give you at restaurants. =]

    As far as me eating horse food... everything that I've ever fed to any horse, ever, I've eaten. Alflalfa pellets, timothy pellets, the cushings-friendly pellets, oats, joint supplements, hoof supplements, sweet feed, senior feed, etc, etc. I've also tried all her treats, one of which I LOVE it's just too dry. I could put it in milk and have some cereal. =] I have licked a Lik-It, and a salt block [DISGUSTING!!!!].

    I had too much fun replying to this one. Good topic. =]

    This is great everyone!! Haha I once tried to feed Sandie a cupcake...she spit out the cake part, didn't really know what to think of it!

    And once in a lesson, my trainer had some peanut butter cookies and he gave one to my horse when I wasn't looking lol! I was like "Rob, did you just feed my horse a cookie?!" and he just said "she likes them!" hahaha

    I had a bucket of candy in the house and took some out to the horses. They loved the big life savers (the ones individially wrapped) and the smarties.
