I've just always wondered because we will feed the cantaloupe rinds to our horses right after we cut one up (it's fresh). It's more like a treat for them because they just LOVE them!!

My mom and I have always wondered if cantaloupe is bad for them .... We've never noticed any negative side effects so I'm assuming not.

Anyone one else let your horses eat it?

Well, he doesn't like cantalope, but he LOVES seedless watermelon, rind and all! [Big Grin]

I've not heard anything about it being bad for them [Confused]

Bucky & Rooster LOVE watermelon, especially Rooster. I think they've eaten cantaloupe before, in fact they've probably eaten just about every fruit.

Last summer I would make them a "salad" every evening, it would be carrots, apples, watermelon, grapes......you name it, if it was fresh and cold from the market, they got it.
