Provide high quality alfalfa or grass roughage with a complementing grain to balance the horse’s diet. Feed by weight, not by volume. Always maintain at least half of the ration as roughage, such as hay or grass. Never feed moldy or dusty hay, grass or grain.
The safest way to feed treats is to put them in a bucket or feeder. Some treats can be a choking hazard. Apples and carrots are safest to feed cut into pieces. Only feed a very small amount of any hard foods like mints and hay cubes.
To do this, you first need a golden apple or carrot. A golden apple is crafted by mixing one apple and eight gold ingots. A golden carrot can be made from one carrot and eight golden nuggets. Walk up to one animal and hit the “Feed” button, and the animal will start spewing hearts.
