Best Answer

Some horses with certain medical conditions cannot tolerate apples at all. Others enjoy them daily. Below are some things to consider when thinking about feeding apples to horses:

  • Apples can give them a bad tummy ache and flatulence (gas). This is called Colic and is often fatal. 1 - 2 apples per day is usually okay. Too much of anything is good for nothing.
  • If horses eat too many apples they can get diarrhea, which to some extent they can die, so just watch how many you feed them, 1 - 2 apples per day is plenty.
  • If too many apples are eaten the horse may founder and has the possibility of dying in a severe case. If this happens call your vet immediately.
  • The acid can also do damage to their teeth
