A horse’s favorite lunch (and dinner, and breakfast) is nothing other than good ol’ grass! In addition to grazing on pasture, horses also often eat things like hay, oats, barley, and bran. For a treat, horses are sometimes given carrots, bread, and sugar. (Yum!) Horses also need some salt, and many are given salt-licks to enjoy!
In addition to this, horses need lots and lots of water to drink. – They drink about 5-10 gallons a day! (That’s about 10-20 times as much as the average grown-up!!)
