    Silly question alert! - Anyone elses horse wont eat polos?

    My saddlebred mare won't eat mints of any kind. You wouldn't believe how far she can spit them. Her daughter on the other hand will do anything for a mint, preferably extra strong! What ia funny though is the mare will eat Top Spec top chop light and it smells very minty!!
