Is there even a ideal way!?I"ve heard people say cut them right into circles, I"ve heard civilization say never cut them into circles. I"ve had one YO who wanted them sliced lengthways into sticks, one who snapped it right into halves width-ways and also a fellow rider that fed them (and apples) whole. Does it make a difference if you"re hand feeding as treats or chucking castle in the feeding bucket at tea time?My horse isn"t yes, really treaty as he it s okay nippy, however I thought it to be an exciting question !And apples - whole, halved or quartered?

Carrots - I have chucked buckets of castle in the ar (as well together fed 30 on a yard) one of two people whole, snap in fifty percent or reduced into strips and also never had an issue. Just time I ever saw choking was when 2 horses had actually been fed carrots cut into one so because that me, ns would never feed these.Apples - again, I"ve fed whole, halved and also quartered and also there"s never been a problem. I started by feeding in strips/quartering and also then snapping in half/halving and now feed fruit/veg whole. My youngster who has had choke with feed, has actually never presented the slightest signs of choke v these so for mine, this is well

Mostly feed any type of fruit/veg totality unless gives are dwindling climate I could snap carrots in half. Oldie it s okay them sliced longways right into strips to make eating simpler for her.
Too much sugar. I only feed carrots sparingly and also in the winter, my negative nags room deprived. I would either feed entirety so that the equines know what they"ve got and also will ut lock up, or sliced lengthways to protect against choke. Usually though it"s 2 carrots in between 3 horses, for this reason they space sliced lengthways for this reason they can share nicely.
Always cut lengthways to prevent choke . Apples ns leave whole and they eat them choose we eat them . I part a bucket complete twice a day and also throw them about the field so they have to hunt the carrots , castle love it and it gets their minds active searching the field and also the delight of recognize the "treasure " , its prefer watching children on a Easter Egg hunt ! Never had a "too lot Sugar" thing , carrots are mainly water nowadays , typical 5grams the sugar and also 41 calories per 100gm of carrots .
