I had to post something on this! I was surfing some equine nutrition sites looking for info (work related, honestly! ) and discovered this section in an article about what Olympic horses were fed at the 2000 games. I have NEVER heard of feeding banana to horses, nor do I think I could even GET my horse to try it, but read this: Bananas were fed to horses from seven countries and were a big part of the diet of the lone horse from the Philippines and Australian dressage horse Crisp, as well as some Russian dressage horses. Bananas are a high energy feed and they also contain high levels of phospholipids that can assist in lining the horse's stomach and preventing acid damage to the stomach that leads to ulcers. Apparently, compared to apples and carrots, bananas have much more nutritional value and dietary benfit. Things that make you go "hmmmmmm".... Has anybody ever tried this? Or any other unusual fruits/veggies??
