I mostly give them carrots, apples, and hay pellets. I don't like to give them so much sugar because it is not good for them and it just isn't natural for them.

Indie always loved apples, although I think most horses do. I never really gave her anything other than apples and carrots, although I once gave her a sugar cube and she wasn't quite sure on what to do with it. I was planning on making her a tasty treat of some sort for Christmas, but unfortunately, I never got that chance... but I am thinking that I'll make a few anyways for the lesson horses at the barn...

Forever loved, never forgotten; my beautiful Indie. <3 Hoofprints on my heart.

Carrots, apples, stale bread, and the occasional cheap oatmeal cookie.

I always keep an old 'Sand-Aid' tub filled with carrot chunks, which I give a few just about every time I go out @ feed time and in-between. In harsh winter weather (such as we're having right now!) I cut up an apple with some warm soaked alfalfa cubes to bring out after dark. For groundwork, however, I give "Dumor Apple and Carrot Treats" in which they love :)

Now if your talking what will they eat rather than what do you give them that's another story. My pony was a veteran of children's pony parties before I got her. She is willing to taste test anything she sees a human eat. My others have all been more skeptical and prefer things on the vegetable side.

I give my pony carrots and pieces of apples =] He hates mints and he's really picky about the bagged treats I give him, haha.

My horses get berry horse treats, carrots, apples. Once we were roasting marshmallows in the yard and I thought, hey, I wonder if McKinley would like one. He was so cute with it! I never really try different things.

I give my horses the Standlee brand berry flavored hay cubes called Whinny Nickers. My old boy will eat anything you give him, but my mare turns her nose up to pretty much every treat I have offered her, including apples and carrots. But she will eat the hay cubes, she loves those. I've tried to get her to eat carrots and apples, even left them in her feeder, next morning the apples and carrots are still in her feeder.
