EC Question of the Week:
We recently asked readers: What is your favorite treat to share with your horse?
The responses are great! Scott Reinartz says his Hank loves everything from salted nut bars to Doritos, peppermints, Skittles, bananas, apples, and carrots, and according to Broken Trail Productions, their horse eats $100 dollar bill sandwiches!
Read the rest here, and get ready for fun photos to go with them:
