Sweet Feed comes in 1 (blue, red & white) color.
Sweet Feed is crafted with 1 Egg. 1 Iron Nugget, 1 Sugar and 1 Oat Bushel.



A bag of sweet feed starts out unopened until right-clicked in hand to open. This gives the item's inventory texture a slightly crumpled appearance. Each bag of sweet feed can be used four times before it is used up (disappears). Right-click a grain feeder with an open sweet feed bag in hand to fill up the feeder.  Horses will eat from accessible grain and hay-feeders when hungry.
