Picky eaters

Aero is the first horse I have ever known - not only the ones my family have owned, but horses of friends and family as well - who refuses to eat apples and carrots. We have even tried just getting her to taste them by cutting them a bit and mixing them with her grain rations - you find the bucket empty except for a pile of apple/carrot pieces sucked clean of every last bit of grain.
She loves the commercial horse "cookies", though.

My first horse didn't like carrots, not even the sugar-sodden baby carrots. He did love whole-wheat bread (like, toaster slices), which my grandmother's carrot-aholic horses won't touch with a lunge whip. My guy would maybe eat one or two carrots, then he'd start spitting them out.

I swear, he would count apple slices. When he was the only horse, I would cut the apple into quarters and feed 4 separate chunks. When my sis got her horse, and apples became a gang feed, if mine didn't get 4 pieces he started pawing the door and throwing his head. He knew he hadn't gotten his whole apple!
