In fact some people feed watermelon left over. Some horses like it (not mine though :) )

My horses won't eat people food, but I would think any fresh fruit or veggie would be fine. Although I don't feed onions or peppers to my chickens and wouldn't even think of feeding them to a horse.

trying new things

Horses have different tastes just like us people do. I have one that likes jelly, the real stuff-when he was on meds I smeared it with jelly to get him to eat it. Mine like kiwi, sometimes a little expensive, a couple of them will eat pears. I am always trying something new especially if your trying to diguise meds that are granuals or pills, as long as it isnt in big doses.

All depends on the horse really. Obviously there are some things you wouldnt feed like onions and stuff like vida said. My tb isnt a big fan of anything other than carrots, apples and sugar cubes (how cliche' lol)

My wb on the other hand will eat almost anything. He likes all the things my tb does as well as bananas, watermelon, oranges and anything else he can get his greedy lips around lol

The horse at the barn I used to take lessons ate pizza. So when owner had it for lunch she always shared a piece with her horse. Isn't it weird?!
