What strange foods does your horse eat? Corn, watermelon…Monster energy drinks?

Freedom Isn't Free

 

Memorial Day weekend generally involves lots of foods. Growing up my horses always enjoyed eating corn husks and watermelon rinds during the summer. I also know horses that love potato chips and if I remember correctly one of the retired racehorses at the Kentucky Horse Park eats buttermilk biscuits! Just yesterday I was talking with someone who said her horse loves to drink Monster energy drinks!

What strange things do your horses enjoy?

If the horses won't eat the corn husks...try a mini!

The horses wouldn't eat the watermelon but the mini would!

    My beautiful Spanish Mustang grulla mare, Dream, loves wintergreen lifesavers and “smarties”!! She can hear a wrapper open a mile away!

    Skittles, hotdogs, sourpatch kids, pretty much anything. A few of the horses will eat orange, and banana, but not all of them will try it.

      And they’re not horses, but our dogs will drink beer and red wine, and then ask for more. One of them got a bit tipsy once.
