What flavors do horses really like?
Interesting BtB blog post. I guess I should start taking bananas to the barn :-P

Thats a pretty interesting list. I know mine stick their noses up at apples but love peppermint, I'll have to give bananas a try. None of them will even put a carrot in their mouths though.

Brickens favorite thing ever is bran muffins with raisins. He goes crazy over them! There's also a horse at the barn that LOVES bananas! I've tried giving them to Brickens but he refuses to eat them.

My guys all hate bananas too!

Only one hates garlic

2 hate carrots

One wont eat apple cores but he has a special love of chicken flavoured 2 minute noodles :lol:

Peppermints... Never came across a horse that hated them. :wink:

My girl loved banana's! She froths at the mouth when she sees them. She also loves apples, carrots, watermelon and cantelope, but oddly dislikes mints!

I never fed Daytona a banana; haha maybe I should start! :D LOL! I like them myself, but I was thinking horses would like apples or carrots the most! :lol:

I know a big old belgian that loved cola, he could drink it right from the can. I've yet to see a horse that doesn't like the smell of beer, can't say I've tried for taste on that one. Pumpkin goes over well though
