Reply To: Won't eat apples anymore

I don’t give apples, carrots, or equine treats to my 30 yr. old TWH. I give him and my new guy David’s Sunflower Seeds (grocery store type). The nuts are good for them and the salt makes them drink. Fruits like apples and carrots are high in sugar and the older a horse gets, the less healthy even natural sugar is for them. Some horses take several times before they accept the sunflower seeds and others go right for it. My TWH gets CoolStance (cocoanut meal) feed with a well rounded vitamin/mineral and in the Summer, I wet his feed with Yuengling Lager Beer for his anhidrosis (caused by the cancer med and his asthma med). Try the sunflower seeds, if he doesn’t like them, then you can enjoy the spitting and eating. LOL
