After they were done eating, they would walk back outside.
What Im saying is that his diet was all grass and grain w/no hay plus about 50 apples. The owner would wait until the tree was in full bloom and then let him eat as many apples as he wanted. The branches hung low enough that he eate at least 50, including the ones on the ground. I thought horses couldn't digest that much glucose. (rich green grass has glucose also)
