Tasty Horse Cookies!

 You can make homemade yummy treats for your horse! They are great for celebrating equine birthdays, special holiday treats, training rewards or as a great gift for a horse loving friend packed in a pretty box with the recipe attached.  


Mix 4 cups Bran  together with 4 cups of Applesauce.  Batter should be doughy.  Roll out with a rolling pin and cut into shapes with cookie cutters.   Let dough dry at room temperature a day or more depending on your humidity.  

The above recipe, since it involves no heating or cooking, can also have a vitamin feed (such as Clovite) added to increase the nutrition value.  Substitute some of the bran for the supplement and mix in well with remaining bran.


Mix 3 quarts of your favorite sweet feed with a syrup made from the following ingredients.  

1 cup sugar,    1/3 cup light Karo Syrup,    1 cup Water combined in a saucepan and heated to medium crack stage (280 degrees F by cooking thermometer).   Add  1/4 teaspoon Salt  AND 1 teaspoon Vanilla.  Stir in the Sweetfeed.  Grease hands form into small bite size balls.  Place on wax paper to harden.  Wrap each ball in plastic wrap.  Use colored wrap for a pretty gift!  (unwrapped they will stick together!)


2 Cups horse feed (sweet or pellets)
2 Cups rolled oats (Quaker oatmeal uncooked)
2 Cups shredded apple or carrots (or both)
1-1/2 Cups Raisin Bran Cereal
1 Cup molasses
1/4 Cup brown sugar

Mix ingredients together.  Spoon drop mixture onto lightly greased cookie
sheets.  (If mixture not clumping, add a little water.)
Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Bake cookies for one hour.  Let cool for one
hour before "serving".


Need a no bake Birthday cake for your horse?  Mix well  4 cups of Oats  and 1 cup Molasses thoroughly in a big bowl.  Shape into a cake on a plate and decorate with apple slices, sugar cubes and other favorite treats.  Add small diameter Carrots as candles.

Here's one meant for horse folks but your steed will want a couple too.


1/2 cup All purpose flour
1/2 cup Whole wheat flour
1/4 cup Nonfat dry milk powder
1 teaspoon Baking powder
1/4 teaspoon Baking soda
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/4 teaspoon Ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon Ground cinnamon
1/4 cup Solid shortening
1/3 cup Brown sugar
1/2 cup Molasses
1 Egg
1 cup Shredded carrots
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1 3/4 cups Quick cook rolled oats

Combine the flours, milk powder, baking powder, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Cream together the shortening, sugar, and molasses; add the egg, then the dry ingredients. Stir until well blended. Add the carrots, vanilla, and oats, and mix well. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake in a preheated 375F oven for 10-12 min. or until lightly browned. Cool on wire rack. 


(Thank you Jennifer Greco!)


1 Cup apples or carrots (I use half a cup of each)

1 cup oats

1 cup flour

1 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons white sugar

1 teaspoon brown sugar

2 teaspoons vegetable oil

cup molasses

About cup water


Cut up your apples/carrots into small pieces (carrots can be grated, apples should be diced), measure and set aside. Mix together oats, flour, salt and sugars in a mixing bowl. Add the carrots/apples. Mix in the molasses and vegetable oil. Then add about cup water or as much as needed to allow all of the dry ingredients to mix into dough. Dough will be sticky but should not be overly runny. Place teaspoonfuls of batter on an ungreased cookie sheet with reasonable spacing (they won't change size much, they'll just get firm). Bake for 10-15 minutes at 350 degrees. Once cooled, give them to your favorite horses and watch them disappear.
