idk if its bad to give them to much carrots and apples lol they would shure love buckets full but there always a limit with any treat for poeple and animals :)
In my horse canda-magazine i have a page full of what u can feed and not feed your horse so here it is :) omg i hate technologie lol i tryed to scan it but it wont take it lol kai ill just type it :)
NOT TO FEED YOUR HORSE
CHOCOLATE: chocolat contains a chemical called theobromine wich can cause seizures, heart trouble, and internal bleeding in horses. theobromine is also toxic for cats and dogs.
TOMATOES: the tamotoe is a membr of the same plant family as deadly nightsade, and many animals are sensitive to the toxic chemicals in there plants. the steams and leaves of the tomato plants are more danger0us than the actual tomota fruits, but it's better to be on the safe side and avoid them altogether. the same goes for other plants you might find in the garden , including peppers, eggplants, potato plant ( raw spuds themsleves are okai in small quantities) and ruhbarb.
FRUIT PITS: many yummy fruits have pits that contains cyanide compounds, wich are toxic - and some larg pits , such as those of peaches , apricots, and avocados, could also get wedged in a horse's windpipe and causes them to choke. if you want to give your horse exotic fruits, be sure to remove the pits first ( even apples seeds contain cyanide, but fortunately a horses would have to eat many pounds of apples for them to have an effect.)
COFFEE, TEA (INCLUDING ICED TEA) & COLA : all of these drinks contain a substance called caffeine , which stimulates the nervous system and can make a horse and humans thense and jumpy. in large doses can even cause an irregular heart ruythm. if you have to share your soft drink with your horse. stick to ginger ale!
DOG AND CAT FOOD: some types of dry kibblw actually contan enough grain products that they are tempting to horses, even when they smell like salmon or chiken ! but because dog and cat foods also contain meat, they are best to keep out of reach of your horse.
ONIONS, LEEKS, SCALLIONS, SHALLOTS & CHIVES: these contains a chemical which can destroy red blood cells. when a horse has low levels of red blood cells, he is said to be anemic. an amemic horse has a weak pulse and no energy because his cells arent getting enough oxygen. some horse who have eaten plants from the onion family also become jaundiced (their mucous membranes look yellowish, which is a sign of liver failure) and have dark, coffee-coloured urine
GARLIC: is also a member of the onion family =. Garlic is a very popular supplement for horses. although many of its supposed benefits have not been proven by scientific studies. the jury is still out on garlic's safety, with some researches saying that the levels usually fed to horses below those which would trigger an obvious reaction, - but that doesnt mean the garlic isnt destroying some red blood cells too. until more research has been done, many horse owners think it's a goog idea to avoid feeding garlic to horses.
WHAT YOU CAN FEED
COOKIES AND CRAKERS - as long as they dont contain chocolat. stay away from the really sugary or march-mallow-y ones. , though , and stick to plainer things like graham crackers, arrowroot cookies or digestive biscuits some horses really like salty whole-wheat crackers like triscuit!
BREAKFATS CEREALS LIKE CHEERIOS PR
RAISON BRAN: Steer clear from Chap'n Crunch and the Froot Loops. though, and tick to the ones made with grain than sugar.
HARD CANDIES, ESPECIALLY PEPPERMINTS : horse really like candy canes (broken up in little pieaces of course) as a bonus, they freshen your hrose breath . only small quantities only make shure to remove the wraper.
BAKE GOODS LIKE BREAD, MUFFINS AND BUNS: as long as they dont contains chocolat or nuts ( some types of nuts may be toxic to horses)
skip the butter and stay away from the sweet lings like cup-cakes with icing; just make sure it doesnt contain walnuts !!
SUNFLOWER SEED " many horse love this treat and will eat them by handful. dont worry about the shell; a horses teeth crunch them up very efficiently. as an added benefits, sunflower seeds contain lost of oil which can help make your horse's coat shiny and his hooves grow strong.
omg lol haha hope this helps
