I've had some crazy treats that my horses have preffered.
we also always buy local fresh carrots in teh summer and feed everyone the greens

The norms:
apples (be careful because they are acidic and can upset some horses)
Nature Valley granola bars
-candy canes (broken up) tis the season :)
sunflower seeds
homemade treats with oats, pepermint, molasses... etc

Mr. Freezees/ popsickles (these are great for horses who don't drink water on the road... the sugar gets them drinking
pound cake
pepsi (not recommended, I just have two girls who love to steal my mother's pepsi, and one who drinks out of the can....)
beer (again this was not me who gave it to her.. a past owner told us she like it... and NOT RECOMMENDED... )

I only give them 2-3, but my horses absolutely love lifesavers! Their favorites are orange mint, cherry-lemonade, and all time favorite, butter-rum!

My horses all love carrots. But I also buy them Mrs. Pastures horse cookies. They also love the crunchy Nature Valley granola bars. Hope you find something he likes!
