We tell visitors (and everyone) that all the horses only get sliced apples, not whole ones. The pear was sliced as well. Jasper seems to be a traditionalist: apples and carrots. He didn't like watermelon, didn't like pears. I'm allergic to bananas, so I never have them on hand. (My dad eats them, but he buys exactly enough to have one a day for a week - no more, no less). I think he would've liked the popsicle if I'd plopped a piece in his water. My trainer said some folks will make them popsicles out of fruit & water in a jello mold, then put it in their water bucket. Jasper, who barely deigns to drink simple bucket water, would probably think I was nuts. I bet Romeo (who love LOVES drinking DIRECTLY from the hose) would probably think it was pretty good.
