Never mind the horse, he can pick his own grass, I want those fruits! *Says this while I am at work with containers of baby carrots & grapes in my purse*

The fruit stand I get my fruits from in summer is owned by horse people. Those horses are SO lucky. They get anything that is slightly blemished so they end up with a ton of fruit. I only wish I could give my boys that much.
I try to hang on to any scraps we dont use and give them to the horses. I make my sons baby food from scratch so end up with lots of stuff. They will eat almost any fruit or veggie and honestly love having the extra treat in their supper. They will be back home in another month or so and I cant wait to start giving them it all again.
