Otis eats everything you put in front of him - it comes from his tactileness. But seriously, I've fed him all sorts of candy - from sponge toffee and chocolate to things like Skittles and mints. He loves coffee, or anything similar to it. Fries, chips, pitas, et cetera.
I fed my trainer's "ex-stallion" warmblood, Boo, a peanut butter cup when I was tacking him up. He wanted another one and wouldn't leave me alone about it.
...Obviously I eat very "healthy" around my horses while I'm working!

My friend has a pony that likes fried chicken... They had KFC for lunch at a horse show, and he snatched it right out of her hand and swallowed a bite of it - good thing it was boneless!

My sister used to feed my halfinger starbursts. I hated it when she did that because it would get all stuck in her teeth. My mom also had a horse growing up that would steal chicken off the picnic table and drink coke.

Oh and to haleylvsshammy, I recently read in my Horse Practical mag that they did a study and found out that bananas are horse's prefered snack. I thought this was pretty cool considering they liked them more than apples and carrots.

My girl isn't really into 'people snacks' other than the normal apples, carrots, that sort of thing. She likes all the horse treats though, Apple Wafers, Alfalfa cubes, and other horsey sweet treats

Nico isnt much into anything out of the norm. We usually keep a big bucket of those honey-wheat pretzels as snacks (for people and horses) around the barn. Just as expensive as those little hard treats for horses....only the people can eat em too!

I had a mare once who would only take her medicine if it was stuffed into a little debbie apple pie. She would literally chase you through the field if she knew you had one!

My first horse (and love!) King would eat anything. He loved bread of any kind. Problem was, it gave him horrible gas! We were at a gaming show once and he ate (notice I didnt say I FED him this) a half a loaf of regular white bread. Every time I would urge him on for more speed, he would fart so loud, you could hear it at the top of the stands. His registered name was King Of Hearts....guess what the girls called him after that!

I would never feed my horse the food I'm eating unless I happened to be eating carrots or something that horses are known to eat. I'm not going to put junk in his system.

I don't usually eat a lot when I'm with the horses, but if I'm having a snack and one of them is eyeing me just so, I'll usually give them a little sample just to see if they actually like it.

It's entertaining seeing the funny faces they make. My Pudgy Pony usually eats anything before she hardly tastes it. My Wimpy Warmblood usually gums it so much that she ends up dropping it. I've given them dried mangoes and baked potato chips... that's all that comes to mind right off the bat.

I like to share with them. It's just a small token to show that I love them. I don't always let them eat wit. Me, but most of the time I do. If I have time I make Jester a plain mayo sandwhich, which is his favorite. Rebel likes honey. He licks it of my fingers. Annie is addicted to Reeses Pieces and normal Reeses Cups. It's gotten to the point that she's now known at the barn as "Reeses" instead of Annie or Bella like she is supposed to be

lol, I don't usually eat around my horse oddly she just gets lots of horse treats XD

One time I did stop to eat a doughnut and offered her the last bite. It was just a normal glazed one, she sniffed, then looked away to go back to 'napping' lol.

I'm not against it, it's just not really convenient for me XD
