Pretzels?  Yes, please!
Does your horse eat weird stuff?  And by that I mean non-horsey type stuff.  You know, 'people food.'

Sug does.  She's like a goat in that respect.  If you hand her something, 9 out of 10 times she'll eat it.  She sees you eating something and then gets her Treat Face on - the tilted head with the ears forward and hopeful gaze, combined with the throaty rumble that's her way of saying, "Pleeeeaaaaassssse!"

Some of Sug's favorite yummies include:

1) Boston Creme donuts - If you have one of these in your hands, you'd better be prepared to share.  Or get mauled.  End of story.

2) Oreo cookies - See above.

3) Chocolate chip cookies - See above.

4) Ice Cream - Sophie really didn't need all that ice cream anyway.

5) McDonald's French fries -Mmmm, salty!

6) Granola bars

7) Brownies

8) Pretzels

9) Popcorn

Aren't you going to share that popcorn??

She also likes grapes, mangoes, pears, clementines, and the occasional horse show breakfast sandwich, preferable pork roll, egg, and cheese.

She likes hot chocolate. And wine. Did I mention wine?  She prefers red.

Long story short, if you plan on eating anything when you're near Sug, you'd best be prepared to share.

Rest assured I don't feed her huge amounts of any of the above.  She'd like me to, but like the Rolling Stones said, you can't always get what you want.

Just the occasional little morsel.  It's just so hard to resist that Treat Face.


  1. My horse loves Oatmeal Creme Pies... you know those Little Debbie cakes? Tasty.

    1. Tracy, apologies for taking so long to reply. I LOVE THOSE LITTLE DEBBIES!!!!! In fact, the day you'd posted your comment, I'd had one for breakfast. Sug is a fan as well, although I have to admit I'm not as good at sharing those as I am at sharing other snacks. ;)
