What’s Your Favorite Snack to Share With Your Horse?

Filed under: Featured,The Buzz |     

By: Brittany Bevis

Traditional treats for horses include produce, like apples and carrots, and sweets like sugar cubes and cookies. But show horses are a special variety of equine and often partake in more unusual snacking options, due to their time spent traveling to horse shows around the country.

We asked our Equine Chronicle readers their favorite snacks to share with their horses, and we received A LOT of feedback. Scroll below to see what they had to say!

Jody Love- “Misters Sundance Kid likes beer. A lot.”

Brooks Edwards- “Lucy loves to eat snow cones. Blue raspberry is her favorite.”

Carri Hansen- “Mavericks’ favorite snack was Cool Ranch Doritos. We even had a friend gift us this cute clay sculpture after he passed away.”

Mandy Hawkins Waddell- “My youth horse was crazy for banana nut muffins. He expected one daily. The day we lost him, he had one left and it was buried with him.”

Kim Bierwirth-Prato- “My daughter’s show horse ate her fried egg sandwich every time she sat it down to get ready for her classes. She would turn around it would be gone. She’d look at Sizzler and there was egg running down his face.”

Martha Schwabel- “Donuts. I had a gelding who would try anything. The only thing he didn’t like was spicy Polish sausage. He ate french fries, fried chicken, watermelon, grapes. But donuts were his favorite. He knew they came from the concession stand.”

Sheila Koch- “Oatmeal cream pies. He hears the wrapper and goes nuts for it.”

Loralea Allen- “My mare loves donut holes and Fruit Loops!”

Pam Ellis- “Mine has lost all his top front teeth, so we found his love of Little Debbie oatmeal cream pies! Nice and soft and apparently delicious.”

Sabine Lazo- “Watson loves a good popsicle!”

Ellen Mae- “Scarlett loves her mini muffins!”

Liz Gombash-Marks- “My old show mare drank Pepsi straight from the can. One time at a show, someone leaned over the fence with a Pepsi can, and she stopped for a drink. Thankfully the judge wasn’t looking!”

Tammie Bauer Harrison- “We had a mare that wouldn’t stop nickering if she saw you had a Pepsi, until you gave her some.”

Emma Wirtz- “Leena loves Twizzlers, frosted animal cookies, Dip N Dots, and oatmeal cream pies.”

Katy Traver-Woods- “Bob was more of a wino, but his big sister, Rosie, loved our hay man and his beer.”

Jordan Hanson- “When I was pregnant, one of our broodmares shared glazed doughnuts with me. She loved vanilla Oreos!”

Kelsey Boone- “My Reining mare loved Twizzlers!”

Kris McDonald Bonfer- “Biggin loved Tic Tacs. He’d roll em around until they were just right in his teeth and then crunch them.”

Ashley King Armeni- “My old show horse liked oranges.”

Shawna Jenkins Tadych- “Marshmallow Peeps will get you almost mauled if you go into the pasture with a box. Also, they like Sour Patch watermelons. The foals are usually eating dinner mints by a week or two old.”

Morgan Dee- “Holly loves licorice right out of Kenzie’s mouth.”

Jordan Melegari- “My mare LOVES cotton candy. She’s so funny to watch when she eats it since it disappears but she can still tell there’s something there.”

Victoria Delarosa- “Bottled water… straight out of the bottle is her favorite.”
