Either one of my horses would gladly leave me in the deepest part of the wilderness if I lost a rein. However, they would both sell their birthright for a bucket of oats.

So funny. If I show up without a bucket in hand they run to the other end of the corral. But anymore, when they see Whitehorse and hear a honk of the horn, they come running.
CHS grain combo with molasses is the candy of choice.
It's got a little bit of everything. Growing up, we just used straight oats. They seem to like this better.
Some folks oat their horses everyday with just a cup full or so. But I'm only around a couple times a week so I give them a pretty good dose.
Patience is a virtue.
I always feed them in the catch pen so when its time to go to work, I close the gate and they are easy pickings. Oating them also gets them out of my hair while I throw them some hay.
The trick to good horsemanship is to make the right thing easy and the wrong thing hard. I don't press my luck anymore. If I have a bucket of oats or their lead rope in my hand, these horses are my friends. If not, they're wild mustangs. I set us both up for success by oating them every time I can. Then when it's time to go to work, no problems.
