What crazy treats do you feed your horse??

I'm sure everyone spoils their horse once in a while. Iknow I do!! I feed my thoroughbred gelding peppermints,poptarts, iced tea, and gatorade but he only likes the blue kind haha. So what do you guys treat your horses to?

These are good choices if you insist on giving your insulin resistant or cushing's horse something. (my horse isn't IR but since he is a QH and an easy keeper, I figure it is best and also more natural to reduce sugar spikes as much as possible)

I rarely give my horse a lot of treats, but when I have them I give him some prunes, yes prunes. They are low on the Glycemic index (they don't spike blood sugar ) and are good anti-oxidants. I give them a limited amount since they do promote ah-hem...movements of the bowel (at least for people)

I've also give a couple bananas (which increase the thickness of the stomach lining if fed often enough (to heal or prevent ulcers).

And of course a apple or some carrots. (These are high in sugar so are no no's for IR horses and the like)

We tried giving bananas but our horses didn't like them or any mints. They get carrots, apples, apple oat wafers, and a few like the black licorice.

I'm not sure my horse would even look at a prune twice lol! We stopped at McDonalds one time after a show and fed one of the barn ponies a milkshake lol.

My horse has ulcers so I often give her peppermint tums. Sometimes she really likes them, but then she will randomly turn her nose up at them. I'm going to have to see if she likes bananas, I'm sure my barn owner would love if I started asking her to cut up bananas in Bella's food lol.

Mine will sound boring, I'm sure! I use empty Sand Aid tubs to fill with carrots I cut up, and always have a pocket full - she gets these only when she gives me a kiss, (a game we play several x's a day haha), then in the late am and late pm (in between her 2 main feeds) she gets a bowl of soaked alfalfa cubes which I heat up in the microwave with some apple chunks - (just started heating them since winter, and she absolutely loves it!!!) Just came in from doing that, actually, and it makes me feel good giving a warm treat like that when it's so bitter cold outside!! I also buy the Dumor apple & carrot horse treats from TSC, and she gets these when I do serious halter/ground work with her - she's very eager to please for those :)
