Yes, a horse can eat too plenty of apples - but it would have to be a fair few. Carry out unripe apples reason colic in horses? they can reason stomache sick in world can"t they? however I"d speak 5 - 8 apples spread out out over the job isn"t going come hurt the average sized horse. We give our equines 2-3 carrots every day and also none have died yet!

I"ve had actually my pony gain a tummy pains from too countless apples... Where I offered to graze her, the you are fool landowners shifted she fence and allowed her to gain at their apple tree... Needless to say, my fatty of a pony ate as countless as she could until she made it s her ill.And ns don"t think two carrots a job is a problem... If I"m feeding carrots, I normally give em a couple... However I shot not to do it everyday... Cos when I don"t have anything, they"d be placed out! I"ve likewise met a few snappy ponies end the years who had actually owners that indulged them, and would snap at her hands in search of carrots... Needless come say, i don"t bother... My horses are happier through a belly complete of hay and also hard feed. X

I may offer several carrots a day and also one or two apples. I"d think too many can reason diarrhea or colics...

The various other thing to it is in concerned about is that apples room high sugars. If you had a horse that foundered or was IR I would be inclined not to offer them one.Our to apologize tree is "shedding" apologize daily around a price of 8-10, it"s roped turn off so they can"t acquire to it. Every evening ~ I"ve placed the boys in the barn i go out and also toss apples roughly the vast paddock so they need to hunt because that them.
