When I got Caleb, I was told that when they had got him, he was pushy about treats so they had never treated him by hand, and so that had been years of extra’s in the bucket etc
But I hand treat my horse’s and I can not be giving treats to only part of the herd and not others.. plus its part of my I’m herd boss.. standing quiet and waiting as I treat the horse one by one mixing up who gets what and when.
but Caleb cracks me up.. he will try anything.. so far this year, we know he will eat any kind of herb, kolerabi, beets, carrots, turnips, blueberries, (which he helped himself to!) and he adores watermelon and of course he loves his apples..
But today he tried banana and it was a hoot for him to figure out the texture and taste.. snort, giggle..
