My older horse loves it nice and cold ! Just remember to stand back it gets messy. My horses also seem to enjoy cold watermelon. I only know because my gelding came up behind me while going to give go chickens and he stole it from me. I would have never thought. I mean I used to have a horse that loved beer and ham sandwiches. Then another that loved peppermint candies and would curl them in his tongue and suck on it. But watermelon is funny to watch them eat. I need to shower after the apple sauce but was a good laugh.
