Can Horses Eat Pickles?

I was wondering if horses can eat Kosher Dill pickles. Also, I’ve heard of people feeding their horses black sunflower seeds. Is that safe?

Black oil sunflower seeds were very popular a few years ago but the current best wisdom is that flax is still a better source of omega 3 and fats. Certainly safe if they are food grade.

Pickles? Is the question will a horse eat them, or should a horse eat them? The separate ingredients, cucumbers salt and vinegar, are all fine for horses. In moderation a pickle won’t hurt a horse. Wouldn’t feed a bucket full.

Ok thanks! No specific need for knowing this but I heard people talking about it and I was merely curious.
