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!

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

funny:
Mr. Freezees/ popsickles (these are great for horses who don't drink water on the road... the sugar gets them drinking
bread
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 heard that horses love carrots. Also, sugar cubes, though that may not be a healthy option. I would say you should just experiment. Look up treats for horses online, and see what most horses like to eat.

I can't imagine a horse that doesn't like peppermints. I have had good success with green beans--and they are healthier. I put them in my pocket and break off pieces as I need them.

The airy pepperment candies that you can always find at Christmas were always our horses favorites, the regular hard peppermint candies they liked too.

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!
