Well this is differnent. My horse likes watermelons. Shes extremely sloppy and could get into any contest with a bunch of kids. Theres a bonus too. Fertilizer, ya never know so far we have gotten 4 stray watermelon plants, go figure. She loves her dialy carrots. She likes bing cherries but so do I and well it's one for her one for me, only she does have to remove the stones. Just make sure the stuff is good, good enough that you would put on the dinner table. If ya got a pig then they like the fresh, but just as happy with the slop. On another note at the end of the season or when I'm done with my veggie garden for the year, I let spend the night in it. For some reason she left the hot pepper plants alone but loved the anahiems.
hehe, i know my horse the big soft mints from wal-mart. she also loves left oer cheerios, granola bars, corn husks, cut grass (in very small ammounts or it could be harmful), sugar cubes, apples and apple peels, carrots, any horse treats you can buy, soda (small ammounts...don't know what caffine can do to them...), molasses, bread crumbs (especially stale). i haven't tried bananas yet, but i've been planning on it for a while. just be sure to look something up before you feed it to your horse or it could be harmful, especially if you're unsure.

i've done a lot of research, and i wouldn't reccomend feeding your horse a potato. however, i have read that most horses enjoy doritos and other chips, so chips should be relatively harmless to your horse. i wouldn't feed them chips on a regular basis or in large ammounts, but a couple chips here or there should'nt hurt anything.

We also feed our horses alot of what is said in the the other posts. My belgian is a PIG, he eats anything he can get his lips on, he even ate a pomegranate right out my hand lol! But on the other hand, my 2 year old quarter horse doesn't even eat apples! Just stay away from the avacados, onions, pepper and any other spices, chocolate, grapes, tomatoes, and potatoes, they can be toxic to your big piggies.
Yes you can give the peppermints, but not too many because they do have sugar. There are treats made for horses that are peppermint flavored, try giving them those because there are more nutrients in the treats than the candy itself.
