what fruits & veggies do you feed your horse?

I've heard there are lots of fruits and veggies that are completely safe for your horse. Besides carrots and apples, my horse loves...
- pears
- peaches
- watermelon
- celery
That's all I've attempted to give her so far. And only as a little treat.

On the trail, T and I fight over the banana chips in my trail mix! That's about as exotic as I get. I stay mostly with the traditional carrots and apples

That's funny, I was just thinking about this this morning. Can they have strawberries? Oranges? What fruits and veggies can they NOT have? I typically stick to apples and carrots, [and the occasional peppermint, butterscotch, skittles and other candy, lol] because I'm not sure what would be bad for them.

I've heard that almost anything is tolerable as long as its less than a cup. I give watermelon, oranges, apples, carrots, mints, bananas, Sonic slushees ... Being a show horse they kind of get tastes of whatever is at the snack stand same as me. I caught my husband giving my horse a piece of a hot dog one time...that may be a little to much...

We gave our horse some cantaloupe the other day and she LOVED it!! I wasn't sure if it was safe so we only gave her a couple of small pieces. She really, really wanted more!

I once saw a horse steal a bit of it's owners bologna sandwich. He didn't spit it out so I guess he liked it! YUCK!!

I give my boy carrots, apples, pears, peaches, oranges, and he really LOVES bananas. My old horse used to LOVE blue gatorade, any gatorade really but he went nuts for the blue. I am also curious as to what they can't have?

Mostly carrots none of mine care for apples much, Jazz will eat butterscotch candy. We had a pony once that ate biscuits and gravy he busted through the screen on an open dining room window while I wasn't looking and when I came back in the dining room he had his nose all up in my plate..yes he was odd lol

This is great and makes me laugh and smile. My boy will eat anything I put in front of him. He loves all fruits, red and orange gatorade, and cat food. Yes cat food. I don't let him eat it but he can undo the cross ties and go over to the cat bowl. Before I new it he was eating cat food. His breath even smelled like it. Sooo Gross!! He also will eat any breads. I know they arent suppose to have peanuts but that's about it. Good post!
