What fruits and veggies are safe to feed??
 
It is obvious of course that I am not wondering about apples and carrots. But I recently starting juicing, and I end up with all this lovely pulp (such as apple and carrot which they die in happiness over) and am wondering if any of these that I list below is known to be particularly bad for my horses. It would seem like a waste to throw all this yummy pulp away and so if I know what I can give them safely periodically I can juice the "bad" stuff in separate batches.

This is most commonly what I juice:
apples
carrots
oranges
lemons
limes
pineapple
grapes (red&green)
grapefruit
mango
kiwi
plums
apricot
banana
ginger
basil
cilantro
cucumber
kale
celery
spinach
beets
tomatos

Also, anything else that you know is bad for them, such as I heard nuts and broccoli are bad including peanut butter, but then I hear conflicting reports... :/

I am fairly new to owning horses of my own and the last thing I want is to give them colic or poison them. They are VERY hungry ponies and usually eat whatever I give them so I worry about them being picky enough.

Thank you to everyone who reads this and helps me in any way. :D
