We have two young quarterhorse mares who eat oranges after they've fallen from the neighbor's tree and then rolled into the arena. They eat them with gusto . . . rind and all. They probably get two per day. Is this okay?

I have never heard of any ill effect from consuming whole oranges. Dried citrus pulp has been used as a horse feed with the only problem being palatability if I remember correctly.

I used to know someone who fed his horse whole oranges on a regular basis, with no ill effects.

Dear D Manning,

My horse will occasionally have an orange a few times a year. Although he does not like the rind, he loves orange part.

Happy New Year!
