Re: What can they eat

Everything really only thing they cant eat is potatoes but everything else is fine. Fi will eat anything but ella is little more picky and princess only will eat apples and carrots so far i leave different veg and fruit around field for girls to have something to do. Strawberries are fi's fav fruit. Ive also started freezing juice for them and cutting up bits of fruit to add in so they lick it and then get fruit as well. x

They can eat most things and most skins, for example Pier loves banana skins but won't touch the actual banana haha. The only thing I know is to be careful of natural sugars, as they're very fattening and can even hype up your horse. Like I can feed Pier bananas all day because he struggles to gain weight but my friend won't give her arab or shetland any as they gain weight so easily. I've tried most things, but Pier is very fussy so will only regularly eat apples and carrots :P xx

pears are the favourite with all of mine though i must try merlin with an orange, he goes mad for orange juice, hes tried most fruits - strawberries, raspberries, kiwi, grapes which they really like, apples, not keen on bananas but likes to peel and play with the skin, veg wise they like turnips, carrots and a few brussel sprouts, i accidently gave him a nectarine once thinking it was an apple and he was revolted, i think he thought i was trying to poison him lol
