Worldwide: Cooking: Favorite Horse Treats
Posted on Sunday, January 22 @ 21:00:51 CST by iljiana

Horse Tips and Suggestions
A few more recipes for you to make happy your horse

Birthday Cake for a Horse

4 cups sweet feed or oats
1 cup molasses or honey
2 carrots, cut into carrot sticks
1 apple, cut into slices

Mix the honey and sweet feed or oats together in a large bowl. When fully mixed, place the mixture on a plate and shape into the form of a birthday cake. Use the carrots as candles and the apple slices as decorations. Horses enjoy this sticky delicious treat.

Mixed Grain Horse Cookies

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.

John's Cookies

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!

Steamed Oat Mash

1 or 2 T. salt
A ration of rolled, crushed or crimped oats
A few cut up carrots
A few cut up apples
1 c. molasses or 2 T. linseed meal for extra taste

Mix all ingredients in a feed bucket. Combine with suitable quantity of boiling water (completely soaked up by oats). Cover and let steam until cool enough to feed to your horse. (30-45 minutes preparation time).

Variation: Use applesauce instead of apples and carrots.

Bran Mash

8 - 12 c. wheat bran
1 c. rolled, crushed or crimped oats
1/4 c. corn oil
1/4 c. molasses
1-1/2 to 2-1/2 c. boiling water
1 carrot, sliced
1 apple, sliced

Combine bran and oats in feed bucket. Add boiling water to desired consistency. Stir in oil, molasses, carrot and apple. Cover and allow to sit. Serve when cool enough to feed.

Apple Horse Cookies

1 c. sweet feed such as Omolene®, Country Horse, Wet C.O.B. (molasses mixed with corn, oats, barley) etc.
2 - 3 c. wheat bran
1 c. flax seed
1 T. salt
4 large apples, shredded
1 c. molasses
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 c. applesauce

Mix molasses, brown sugar, apples and applesauce in bowl. Mix dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Gradually combine wet and dry ingredients together, only using enough of the wet ingredients to make a thick dough. Add more bran if necessary.

Line cookie sheet with foil and spray with oil. Drop batter onto cookie sheet in tablespoon amounts. Flatten with a fork. Bake slowly at 300° F. for 1 hour, turn cookies over and continue to bake for another 45 minutes until thoroughly dried. Reduce heat if cookies begin to brown excessively or to burn.

Store in covered container or zip-locked plastic bag and dole out as special treats to your equine buddies.

Cold Winter Bran Mash for Horses

4 cups of sweet feed
6 cups bran
1 cup molasses
Hot water
