The answer to the question in the title is, “Yes!” Horses can eat pumpkins, and it’s not just for Halloween. Pumpkin is a great way to get your horse some essential nutrients. Read on for more about how you can use pumpkin in your horse’s diet!
Pumpkin is a great source of fibre because it’s high in pectin.
It also contains vitamins A and C, both of which are important for healthy skin and coat conditions. Pumpkins can be added to your horse’s feed or served raw as whole fruit pieces, chunks or puree with some water mixed in (check first for unsavoury parts).
Pumpkin increases the amount of time between meals while providing ample nutrition at each mealtime – an excellent strategy to help manage weight gain!
Horses should not eat pumpkin pie filling made from canned pumpkins unless they don’t have any other choice due to the lack of fresh vegetables available. The sugar content is too high and there may be harmful additives like corn starch.
