Veggies for horses

Just wondering if it's ok the feed horses tattie peelings? as a friend of mine whom I walk their dog gives me veggies and is also wondering if it's safe to add tattie peelings in the bag. She tried researching it but there wasn't much luck and same with me as some say it's fine as long as they're cooked others say different. It'll just be the peelings they will not get the actual tattie. Cheers. ?

Are you asking about Potato peelings?
I might toss them to chickens or put them into the compost pile but think I'd skip feeding them to horses.

From what I recall, potatoes are toxic to horses. Can't share the link to another forum here, but Google 'potatoes toxic to horses?'

Yes they are. No, do not give to horses!

Ya, tatties is Scottish (I believe) for potatoes, so don't feed.

No, do not feed potatoes to horses. You can do a google search on which veggies & fruits horses can eat.

My grandmother kept working cobs in the UK during WW2 when food was strictly rationed. They fed cooked potato peelings to their horses with no ill effects at all
I wouldn't suggest feeding them nowadays, certainly not in large amounts as they're high in starch but as long as you don't feed them raw, don't feed any that are green and don't feed the foliage/sprouting part of the potato plant I don't think they're any more toxic to horses than they are to humans.

Cheers. A tattie peeling is a potato peeling in Scottish sorry that's what my family always calls them :) I will let my friend know tattie peelings might not be so good for the ponies. I doubt it would've been a lot of peelings.
