Question What special treats do you give your horse?

What kind of treats do your horse or horses absolutely love besides apples and carrots. Caleigh likes Candy Corn in small amounts, after more than 10 or so she starts spitting them out. Another horse at the barn I board at loves Cranberry granola bars, and the first horse I ever took lessons on almost 18 years ago loves Orange soda and pears.
What does yours like?

When life gives you lemons....chuck em at whoever is giving them to you!

My friends 2 horses love Coca-Cola and lemonade. But only in small amounts, we don't wanna make them sick.
My old paint used to love it when I made horse cakes.
It was just chaff, honey, carrot, apple, molasses, and pellets all mixed together. It was pretty sticky so I just moulded it into a cake shape. They're pretty easy and inexpensive to make.

I like candy corn myself. My horses recently stole about 4 lbs of pears I had in a bucket in the aisle of the barn, so I guess they like pears.
My friend's mare (my boarder) picked up a banana peel I tossed in the pasture and ate it.

don't worry, spiders, I keep house casually.

I'm always looking for inexpensive treats for Caleigh. She goes through treats pretty fast but that's partly my fault too.

Onyx loves chips, any kind really. Lol! I some times bring some with me on rides so I share with him, only a few of course. Willow will pretty much eat whatever happens to be in front of her mouth at the time, lol! We got a bunch on corn from some friends so we gave some of the leafs and a small part of the corn and they all ate it, except willow... she won't even eat cob grain... guess she doesn't like corn at all.

lol. Chips. Never thought of that. Someone at the barn gives their horse orange slices. Then he drools when all the orange juice sprays out when he takes a bite.

Hercules carrots

Belle doesn't like them so I will have to find one for her

A good cowboy always has a better horse at the end of the ride, a poor cowboy will be afoot reguardless of the horse.

The pony I used to release would eat ANYTHING (cheese quesadilla, crangrape juice, cashews, etc.) HIs absolute favorites though were french fries or cheetos. He would grab the bag out of my hand and scarf them down, lol

But for most horses, on special occasions (new horse, B day, etc.) I carve out an apple like a pumpkin, mix the inards with shredded carrot, oats, molasses, honey, crushed peppermint, whatever and restuff the apple then serve! I've never met a horse who dislikes them

My horse will pretty much eat anything. :P His favorite treat it seems are these banana German treats that looks like odd chalk bits my local take shop imports. It doesn't look very appetizing, but he loves them.
