Do u share?
When u are eating do u share with your equine friend?
My horses love people food bologna sandwiches, candy (although I really limit that) skip really loves cheese mayo sandwiches and coke, grabbed the whole thing one day out of mi hand kinda peed me off I grabbed half back. We both love coke too. I have a horse whose owner used to give him schnapps I don't as I don't drink and that shnapps (sp?) is just too expensive/ I sold this one horse (too herd bound reared etc,,) after I got him to where he was relatively safe, but I was honest and told the lady why I was selling (and he was too mean to my other horses) and she saw me giving him some of mi coke, She flipped out. She bought hiim too bad for him thats what he gets for being a butthead.

Rena likes caramels :D haha and my friends horse LOVES cheerios, lol.
my old horse liked all-dressed chips... AND double chocolate donuts (ONLY double chocolate!) so when we stopped at tim hortons in the mornings of shows i got him a donut. lol
ya i share, Ive never heard of a horse dying from it xD as long as you dont just feed them gallons of it or something, lol.

Yes. :D Abbe loves to try anything, and if she doesn't like it she'll spit it out. She likes potato chips and most cereals. She also loves slurpies! :D Soda, granola bars, candy canes, peanut butter, bread... When we went camping, we also learned that she likes french fries, marshmallows, M&M's, and she go's crazy for beer! :D haha.
I don't give any of this to her very often, I just love to see what she likes :) I know that none of this is good for her, or me! :)

Well I am so glad there are people out there who let their best friends have a litte fun. I had forgotten until now back when I was a kid I'd take rocky to my gf house for the weekend. There was a little store a couple of miles away from them. That horse expected this thing it was like a straw filled with kool aide. I remember digging for change cause I knew he was waiting for it. I doubt that first love is ever really duplicated, not that I don't love mi horses now I do but when rock died (colic) part of me went too. Took geez 20 years for me to look at another horse, I should be shot, gotta be tough, I m not

All of my horses have loved my SoBe and blue berry. I've had them grab it off the railing, outta my hand, even empty bottles outta the trash can when we walk past.

Mine dont get treats, on the odd occasion a cracker or something maybe, but im hardly ever eating when im out with the horses anyway

ETA: My mum used to have a horse that had to have a steak sandwich at each show.. kinda creepy..

My barn is in my backyard and a few years ago I whipped myself up a nice salami sandwich to go sit in the loft and eat before I bathed my horse before a show. My boy is a rooter and he was standing in the barn. I laid the sandwich and paper plate down on a ledge while I talked to one of the barn cats. Next thing I know, Cody grabbed that sandwich and ate it whole!
He has a tendency to colic though so as a precaution he got his stomach pumped :(

I do share, but am careful what I share. Both horses love coffee, but I have to be sure it's not hot for them, and they get the last of it (don't like horse back flush!).

On the trail I always carry a snack for the horses, it's only fair seeing as they are hauling my F** A** around! LOL!

If we have any extra beers around I don't have a problem popping a top for my ole boys. (or girl. lol.)

I don't feed my current horse anything outside of the norm.

A pony I used to show LOVED blueberry muffins though. The same pony once bolted on me and came to a sliding stop right in front of my mom who was eating a Subway sandwich, and tried to steal it from her!
