    [RC] Treats for vet checks - Kari Hanes

    I have a couple of very finickly horses. We ended up just giving them grass hay and a little corn at the vet check on our first ride. My mare wont eat any "treats". We've tried carrots, apples, beets, lettuce, corn husks, pears, and even green beans! She doesn't seem interested, noses through it all and looks at you like "where's the good stuff?" I've tried mixes with molasses, sugar water and apple juice, no dice. Is it okay to just have grass hay and a little corn? Does anyone have a picky eater that can give me some tips? She drank good at stops and had e-lites, is that enough?
