Your pets favorite treat?

Favorite pet treat time! XD

Horses --
Loki: Peppermints peppermints peppermints. I swear he has super-sonic hearing when it comes with peppermint wrappers xD
Cookie Monster (formerly Icarus): Apple Wafer horse cookies! I've never seen a horse so obsessive over these things, I have to admit though, it's an awesome gentling tool. Monster is MUCH more trusting now that I have discovered his secret love for cookies than ever before. One cookie and you have a puppy dog for life XD

Pandora and Murphy: Yogurt! Seriously, these two are crazy for peach and strawberry yogurt. Pandora's favorite way to eat it is to 'nurse' it out of (needless!) syringe. I offered some to my sick bunny and left the container on my desk, Murphy nearly got his head stuck in it XD
Gummi Bear: Noodles. Seriously, this cat loves noodles. He'll turn his nose up at seafood (fresh seafood! I kid you not!) but will beg for cooked noodles O-O

They go loco for horse feed. If I run out of bunny chow over the weekend I usually give them some Purina to hold them over until I can get more. Talk about spoiled
In the summer time it's fresh picked Dandelion and clover all the way. They get grazing time pretty much year-round, weather permitting, but in the summer when the clover and dandelion go into full force they just can't get enough.
I feed them pretty high quality mixed hay with a high percentage of clover and alfalfa, but nothing beats the fresh stuff ^^

My iguana is a total nerd for over-ripe fruit :roll: especially bananas and melons. She won't even come near regular bananas, but if it's over ripened she just about climbs your leg to get at 'em. Actually a bit frightening, given her size XD

When I still had my Chinese Water Dragon, Dante, I would give him fried mealworms as a treat. He would perch on my hand and munch away, happiest little lizard ever. He still dined on his usual fare of live, dusted (calcium and vitamin powder) mealworms and crickets but he had a special liking for the fried stuff >.<

The Savannah Monitor I also used to have was a total pig over boiled eggs. He ate pretty much everything (more goat than lizard, perhaps) but boiled eggs was his number one favorite next to mice. I remember the time the little escape artist got his tank lid open just enough to climb out and get into my mouse tank. He ate a dozen mice, then crawled under my couch and went to sleep >-<

Wait! I'll fix it....

Lilly (horse): Homemade apple carrot oat molasses munchies, or a handful of grain. I tried peppermints once but idk if she likes them that much, lol.
THE BEAST (cat): Anything you're eating. Seriously.
Shadow (another cat): Melon. Honeydew specifically.
Molly (the moose...I mean, dog): Green minty bones.
Dr. Harold Livingston (brazilian/columbian rainbow boa hybrid): He doesn't get treats, just his frozen rats.
Tatu (parrot): Sunflower seeds! Mmmm fattening.

Rocky our 12 year old Chihuahua- He'll eat almost anything except lettuce and olives.
Aero and Heidi, 1 year old rats- They LOVEEE peanut butter and chocolate, and ice cream...if they are on your shoulder when you are eating chocolate ice cream or anything with peanut butter, they'll be practically trying to steal it from you to get it. I swear, they're like cats and catnip!!

Hershey(TB)-Honey Crisp Apples. If I give him Red Delicious he spits them out.

Arwen(German Shepard)-Cheese. She goes nuts for cheese.

Roland(Lab Mutt)-He loves fish oil tablets. I got them for Arwen because she has allergies and gets really itchy. She hates them and I have to slather them in peanut butter or cheese spread to get her to eat them. But Roland eats them like candy.

Help me horse forum! You're my only hope!
