    My horse love apples and carrots but hardly ever get them when I do give treats it in a pan. Id be very mad if neighbors were feeding my horses treats with out asking first.

    For one I don't ever hand feed and sure don't want anyone else hand feeding my horses either.

    Hello there,

    You have mentioned in a previous thread that you help one of your neighbors with her horses. Is this the same neighbor? Either way, I would ask before you start handing out treats.

    However, if this neighbor has already given you permission to give treats to his/her horses I would ask if there are certain foods the horse favors most. Some horses can be very picky. I had an old lesson horse that wanted nothing to do with apples or carrots, he only would only take his store bought treats.

    It's possible he has never had one before. He might not know what it is and doesn't know what to think of it. It's also possible that he just doesn't like apples. All horses have different likes. Some horses like oats while others don't. Another option, is he can't have apples. Always ask the owner of the horse if they can have something before feeding them it. I know some horses that can't eat anything but soft food because they will choke on it. Make sure to ask the horse's owner. Hope I helped. 😄
