Horses love beer, too.

I let my boys have apples, carrots, Rounders Molasses Treats, Archway Molasses Iced Cookies, Nature Valley Oat and Honey Granola Bars, peppermints, candy canes, Nutter Butters...Hoover eats just about everything but Gunny doesn't like peppermint.

My trainer told me once raisins were bad for horses.

Mine eats pina colada popsicles, green apples (his absolute FAVORITE), and he often shares my mountain dew with know you love your horse when you can drink after them.

He also likes the Nature Valley Oat and Honey bars. He knows what the wrappers sound like, so any time I open something plastic he wants to try and eat it.

Haha, that's Hoover too! I used to smoke, and he always thought the cellophane was a granola bar.

I let my horses drink my pop, too. They're very polite and generally don't back wash ; )

I don't know about tobacco in cigarettes, but I know a few horses who looooooove Copenhagen smokeless tobacco. Turns them into nuts. I think I read somewhere where it gets them high?

Thanks HooverH, I'll have to look into the raisins.

Won't try the beer. We gave it to our ferrets once, not a pretty sight tipsy ferrets!

Lol! Haha, I've never thought about giving them coffee. They would go crazy on caffine! :)

I always say that Comanche's favorite food is plastic bag/container because when he hears that crackle: watch out for him because he will come running to you! :)

They don't get too much because they are very greedy!

You could give em decaf! They also love my decaf tea. Not so neat on the sipping though. When I'm about 1/2 to 2/3 done, I let them have the rest. Sometimes I'll pour a bit into their feed dishes. That works best for all of us!

Yeah, I'll have to give them some to see if they like it! I just remembered, at my old barn there is an Arabian gelding whose favorite food are hamburgers! It was weird to see him munch off of one lol!

Giving them fruits and veggies isn't that bad but keep your horse's teeth in mind when you give him treats. Sugar does the same thing to their teeth as it does to ours... My vet was just telling me about a seminar he attended about doing root canals on horses... all because of the crap we feed our horses.
