    Does anyone have a recipe for treats? Someone who used to board at our barn made treats that our vet LOVED--they had oatmeal and flax seed and molasses... and I don't know what else!

    Heres some!! :)

    Recipie 1
    1 3/4 c. mixed grain (such as a corn, oats, and barley blend)
    1 1/2 c. flour
    3/4 c. unsweetened applesauce
    2/3 c. dark brown sugar, packed
    3 T. dark corn syrup
    egg white from 1 large egg (well beaten)
    Preheat oven to 375° F. Combine the grain and flour in a bowl and mix thoroughly. In a second, larger bowl, combine applesauce, brown sugar and corn syrup. Stir in egg white and then the dry mixture. Combine well. Drop by spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets, leaving 2 inches of space between each. Bake for 12-14 minutes, until dark brown. Remove to a wire rack and cool. Yield about 25 cookies.



    Recipie 2
    8 cups dry cob feed (corn, oats, barley mix)
    3 cups ground carrots
    1/2 cup corn oil
    2 cups flour
    2 cups molasses (use livestock grade from feed store - it's cheaper!)
    Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl until well mixed. Let stand for at least an hour (so the grain can absorb some of the moisture). Stir the mixture well. Drop by rounded teaspoonful on to a well oiled cookie sheet. Using your fingers and the teaspoon 'smoosh' the cookie into a round slightly flattened shape. Bake at 350° F for 12 to 18 minutes, depending on your oven. These will burn easily so be sure not to leave them in too long. I bake mine in a convection oven for 12 minutes and that's about perfect but you'll probably need to leave them in longer if you have a conventional oven. Put the cookies on racks to cool then store them in a tight container. This recipe makes between 6-9 dozen cookies depending on how big you want to make them!



    Recipie 3
    I cuprolled oats
    1/4 cupwater
    a pinchhoney
    a pinchsmooth peanut butter
    1/4horses favrite grain
    1small carrot
    First put the rolled oats in the bowl. Then add the water. Then add a pinch of honey and smooth peanut butter. Add your horses favorite grain and stir. If it is not sticking add more honey. Then cut up 1 small baby carrot. Roll them into little balls (NOT TO SMALL). Put them in the refrigerator to harden then serve.


    Recipie 4
    Sweet feed or any grain
    Molasses
    Apple

    1. First place a cup of sweet feed in a bowl and stir in just enough mollasses to make the feed nice and stiky.

    2. Take your knife and very carefully cut around the apple stem and remove it. Then scoop out the inside of the apple, leaving space for the sweet feed mix.Spoon as much sweet feed mix into the apple as you can
    serve to horse as is!!

    LOL i'v never used any of these! but they have gotton great revews from fellow horse owners!! :)

    Popcorn balls for Horses

    3 c. steamed oats
    1 c. cracked corn
    2 med apples, grated
    1 c. cane syrup, boiled to soft crack stage

    Mix well and form into golf ball size pieces, let cool. Don't give too many as it does have sugar in it but 2 or 3 a day is ok.

    Carrot and Apple Cookies

    1 cup sweet feed
    2 cups bran
    1 cup flax seed
    4 large carrots shredded
    1 cup molassas

    Mix molasses,brown sugar, carrots and applesauce in one bowl..in another mix the dry ingredients...slowly combine the dry mix with the molassas mixture, till it forms a thick dough, add more bran if necessary. line cookie sheet with aluminum foil. using a tablespoon, drop batter onto cookie sheet and flatten slightly to form portions about the size of a silver dollar...bake at 300 degrees for about an hour, flip and bake for an additional 45 min until they are dired out. keep checking to make srue that they don't burn..

    Thanks all for the suggestions!

    Do these keep (like, in a ziploc?)? My horse doesn't like apples or sugar, but she seems to LOVE manufactured treats. I'm looking for a healthier alternative. Think she'd like these?

    The horse pop corn balls keep well, if you wrap then separately in plastic, they stick together a lille if you just toss them in a bag.
