Our mares love hedge apples.(Osage oranges).. They can be standing in brome grass and prefer to go find a nasty old thorny hedge tree and eat hedge apples..
I cut one open and tasted the center it was very bitter sweet. They also like the leaves and branches off the hedge tree too, thorns and all .. Hillbilly horses.
Sassyfras (my mare) also likes to drink from my canteen or water bottle, flavored water or gatorade makes her curl her lip.

Vida has discovered if its in my hand and I am offering it to her, it must taste good. She used to be a very picky eater but now she will eat anything I offer. She loves the peppermints you get from Sonic.
I had a horse when I was a kid who loved cigarettes, paper and all. Had to remove the filters though.

Dobe will go out of his way to chew on a sage brush or a yucca plant. He eats sticker plants and has even taken a bite of cactus. He must have a mouth of steel. He doesn't like anything man-made.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

during one of my shows I was sitting at my trailer by phantom with a bag of Honey Wheat Pretzel Twists and i turned my head for TWO seconds and he had my bag in his mouth then on the groud and he ate half my bag of pretzels. Also he looooooves warm peppermint bran mash.

My friend claims her horse will eat anything and i believe her when she deworms her horse that thing follows her around begging for more. My friend said if it didn't hurt her she would feed her horse a rock to prove she will eat anything haha
