What flavors do horses really like?

Interesting BtB blog post. I guess I should start taking bananas to the barn

Thats a pretty interesting list. I know mine stick their noses up at apples but love peppermint, I'll have to give bananas a try. None of them will even put a carrot in their mouths though.

Brickens favorite thing ever is bran muffins with raisins. He goes crazy over them! There's also a horse at the barn that LOVES bananas! I've tried giving them to Brickens but he refuses to eat them.

My girl loved banana's! She froths at the mouth when she sees them. She also loves apples, carrots, watermelon and cantelope, but oddly dislikes mints!

I never fed Daytona a banana; haha maybe I should start! LOL! I like them myself, but I was thinking horses would like apples or carrots the most!

Ride more, worry less.

I know a big old belgian that loved cola, he could drink it right from the can. I've yet to see a horse that doesn't like the smell of beer, can't say I've tried for taste on that one. Pumpkin goes over well though
