My mum kindly saves all her carrot peelings and apple scraps for my horse to chuck in his feed, and as I was cutting up some veggies for dinner tonight I was wondering - what other vegetables cut-offs can I give him?
Reasons for this being to a) give him a bit of variety in his meals, b) some extra (if only a little) vitamins and nutrients and, c) save throwing away good food.
I know that potatoes are a no-go because of the starch, but is there anything else I should steer clear of?
I fed brocolli to mare mare before, and one time a turnip, which she thought was a carrot and was rather unamused when she realized mid-chew that it wasn't , with no ill side affects.
So as far as vegetables and horses are concerned, what good and what's not?
