    Absurd snacks

    What kind of crazy stuff does your horse like? What kind of weird stuff have you concocted for them?
    We found out last winter that Salem likes coffee I bring it out to the barn in a poweraid bottle and he was lipping at the rim one day after I took a drink. I tipped it back and sloshed coffee in his mouth thinking he would learn to keep his mouth off the bottle, instead he smacked his lips and came back for more! I asked my vet about it, showed her about how much I would give him n she said it should be fine. So now I bring a little cup with me so I can pour him a bit and he drinks right out of the cup

    I also made him "sushi" one time with long paper thin carrot slices rolled around oats with melted marshmellow mixed in them to hold them together. He could only have two but he made the funniest face

    I stick to my horses diet and don't really give him anything else - their digestion can be incredibly sensitive and I see no reason to give him anything with artifical ingredients too often. So his snacks are just low-sugar and low-starch horse treats with no artifical components and some fruits/vegetables he prefers.

    Although he once managed to steal some oatmeal cookies and loved them. :)

    My filly stole my white wine one time and will regularly steal my fiance's beer given the chance. Seriously, if it is in a people cup, she wants to try it. She hates apples, which I find kinda funny.

    The arab I used to ride loved skittles and french fries lol and an old friend of mines gelding liked tea. Also knew a mare that loved cantaloupe and one who liked powdered donuts lol. My very first horse liked beer and Popsicles haha.

    Well, he's not mine, but there's a pony at my barn and he will eat ANYTHING.

    Let's see..

    Any kind of candy
    Fruit snacks
    Banana peels

    I've actually seen him trying to get into the back of a van to get more food.
    Very naughty pony!

    I think your filly might have a drinking problem...
