You might be surprised at what they eat. Unless, of course, they are confined to a run and never get to free range. But if they have access to where the dogs and horses poop, they are probably picking through it. As Beekissed said in response to one of your other posts - dogs will eat whatever they find if it has undigested foods in it or seems to be sweet to them. They're really not that fussy.

Thankfully my dogs are definitly fussy now. I now worry about how to make them eat their food. They all eventually eat when hungry even if I don't add stuff to their normal diet though.

Perhaps you should try feeding your dog more vitamins? He may be missing something in his diet which he is gaining from eating feces...

I read that mentioned often as possible cause, but that was never the problem in my experience. I think some pups just go through odd "everything is tasty" stage before they figure out better. My kitten used to chomp down on corn on the cob when he was little, and he ate my dog's poo as well. I gave them the best diet possible, along with other treats to no avail. Now my cat is the world's finickiest cat, and the only treat he'll eat is egg yolks on weekend, properly cooked, more as a ritual. The poo days are loooong gone.

Well, young animals are often curious and incomprehensible, such as puppies. Mine never ate poop, but most dogs are different...

Not sure what to do.  I know when dogs eat their own poop you can sprinkle meat tenderizer on their food.  Apparently they don't like the taste after its "processed" by their intestines.  But I'm not sure you want to go feeding meat tenderizer to your other animals.  Perhaps contact your vet and see if they have any advice.  Maybe they are missing something in their diet that they are able to get from these items??? Just not sure
