Experiment with stuff you have. My horses like peppermints, jelly beans, green peppers, sweet tea, mountain dew, cheetos, blueberries, raspberries, granola bars, peanut butter crackers, pole beans and white half runners, and of course corn, carrots, watermelons, and apples.

Oh, my pony loves the crap out of barbeque chips. Especially the hot and spicy ones. He'll pick those out of any other treat, even apples. Go figure!

My horse LOVES PB&J sandwiches!

Bugles were a no go, spit those right back at my hubby and gave him one heck of a death stare!

Apples and carrots go over well, if you have an eager eater and baby carrots, put them in a feed pan, not from your hand! My kiddos about lost a few fingers that way.

Barrel, be careful with potatoes. Horses can't digest them properly, regardless of what your gelding tells you!

Pretty much any fruit can be given to horses, but you should try and stay away from processed foods as much as possible.

As an occasional treat bread, cookies, and even dry cereal are fine. Horses also like uncooked pasta, but again, limit their intake.

When I mean occasional, I mean every 6 months or so, definitely not as a regular treat or even once a week.

SR, he doesn't have much of a chance to eat a lot of chips. He has to go through me first .
I tried giving my pony a bite of a Snickers bar once. His name is Snickers and I thought it would be cute. Being the glutton he is, I was surprised that he just gave it a funny look and didn't even try it! Good thing though, chocolate is not the greatest thing in the world for them.
One of my friend's horses ate her popcorn chicken from KFC once. She also likes nachos. Weird horse.
