Horses have very different foods they like just like people. Most will eat their regular meals of grass or alfalfa hay and/or grain. DO NOT feed horses grass clippings from lawn mowers. These are VERY poisonous and are very fatal in most instances. There are numerous amounts of plants that are not safe for horses, but most of them are smart enough not to eat it. Do not feed horses very much apples, carrots, treats, sugar cubes, peppermints (not very safe anyways!). These can make them sick and encourage bad behaviors like nipping/biting though especialy make sure they dont eat ANY acorns they are VERY poisonous.
