My horses are all different.

Apache loves bread and carrots but wont even touch an apple. He loves the horse treats from the tack store as well.

Pepper is obsessed with apples and pears. She will it bread and carrots but isn't that keen on them.

Sammy will eat just about anything he likes apple turnover with cream, bread, apples, anzac biscuits, horse treats from tack store, broccoli, pizza without toppings, hot chips, cheerios the cereal he will eat carrots but isn't all that keen on them. That's all I can think of all off the top of my head.

I'm curious what sort of mints do you feed your horses? Does it matter? I've wanted to see if they like them but wasn't sure what sort is best.

My one donkey loves peppermint of any kind. My burro says "Eh, whatever."
After Christmas I went and stocked up on clearance candy canes for 10 cents a box. So for about $1.00 I got enough candy canes to last the whole year for the donkey. She will however, eat any kind of mint and she really loves the balled candy Christmas mints that melt in your mouth really fast like powerded suger, then stand there and suck on her tounge for 5 minutes.

Many horse like the little red and white mint discs you get restaurants and they are easy to find.

Pears! I have asian pear tree (should be barlett, at least per sign, but you never know of course, when you buy it off Home Depot), so the Fall is a blessing for both horses (we had 3 buckets last year they managed to eat during a month).

Both hate peppermint and don't like bread.

Sassy will only eat apples or applesauce. No peppermints, no carrots, no apple flavored treats, no other treats at all. Just apples.

ETA: She'll put whatever I give her into her mouth. Then she kinda flops it around and drops it. Weirdo.

Snazzy loves apples, carrots, peppermints and any type of horse cookie. She REALLY loves the banana flavored cookies or homemade treats with banana, but won't actually eat a banana, silly horse!

I also like to give my horses citrus, they eat melon rinds,& they love roses & rose hips. They don't like sugar cubes, though.

My guys like the big bags of old mushy bananas from the grocery store the best.

The donkey is also very fond of white bread, he doesn't think wheat bread is as good.

My first horse liked the green striped mints, I think they were spearmint instead of peppermint.

My horses will do just about anything for breeders cubes, we had longhorns cows for awhile and would buy those breeders cubes for them to eat in the evening. One day fed one to one of my horses and they love them. Its also alot cheaper to buy a bag of those than the fancier horse treats. 2 of my horses wont touch pepperments etc. Now my walker will eat anything, we have had to chase him out of the cat food, chicken feed (got into the neighbors coop one day), and he's even shared a sausage, egg, and cheese biscuit with my daughter, so nothing is off limts according to him, he'll try anything. And he loves watermelon. He makes quite a mess with those when I gave him some in the past, the others not interested.

apples, carrots, horse treats
