I have to admit, I sometimes give treats just because. I love my horses.
Or I have a pocketfull I need to clean out

all what my horse gets as a treat is carrots. It's not every day, only special days (like when i haven't seen her in a while)

When i first got her tho, everyday i had a bag of carrots. It was kind of like an ice breaker. I think that really helped us bond so quickly, because she saw me as someone that had yummy stuff, so she wanted to do good things and be by me.

I have no idea what kind of treat i'm giving her on her birthday tho. Any Ideas?

I saw something awhile back about a horse pizza. It was basicly just fruit and veggies but really cute. Same article had a watermelon bowl full of fruit and veggies for a horse.

I give my horses carrots after a good ride. They know that if they did something good they get a treat for it when there done. If they act up, then no treats and they realize not to do it again.

It is not just a horse,
It is the one thing that keeps me from being just a girl
