does anyone have any recipes for treats for your horses?
I'd like to be able to make some for Milly, just as a change from the usual apples and carrots sometimes.

Here are two horse recipes I found on the net:
1 ½ cups Bran
1 cup Whole Wheat Flour
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
¾ cup skimmed Milk
½ cup Molasses
2 tablespoons Corn oil
1 Egg, beaten
Stir together bran, flour, soda, and baking powder. Mix together milk, molasses, oil, and egg. Mix wet ingredients into dry ingredients. Bake in greased or paper lined muffin tins at 200 degrees celcius for 15 minutes.
Apple Horse Cookies
1 cup margarine
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup bran
1 cup diced carrots
1 cup diced apples
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups quick cooking rolled oats
Cream margarine and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs. Combine flour, bran and baking soda. Blend into creamed mixture. Stir in oats, carrots, and apples. Drop by spoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets and bake at 180 degrees celcius for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove and cool. Makes about 4 dozen.

These cookies are great because they are crunchy on the outside, but soft on the inside and they are also easy to make.
4 cups flour
3 cups oatmeal
4 tablespoons brown sugar
3/4 cup applesauce
4 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 cup molasses
1 cup hot water
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. and grease a baking sheet. Mix oatmeal, flour and brown sugar together, then mix in egg, vegetable oil, applesauce, molasses and hot water then mix well. Roll out dough to 1/2 inch thickness on a floured surface. Cut out shapes using cookie cutters. Place cookies on baking sheet and bake one hour. Then just turn oven off and leave the door shut until they cool. They will make 'em crunchy.

prawn crackers (added bonus is the oil in them maks coats shiny),
Horses love all these and the oranges and orange peel are good for them and are regularly fed to horses in france.

Here are 2 I found:
1 cup molasses
1 cup sweet feed
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp corn oil
vitamin supplement (optional)
Slice the apples into tiny pieces. Use a grater to grate the carrots. Pour all ingredients into a large plastic bag. Shake. Keep refrigerated until served.
1 packet instant oatmeal
1/2 cup dry bran
1/4 cup corn oil
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup wheat flour
2 tablespoons molasses
2 tablespoons brown sugar
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Use a grater to grate both carrot and apple. Stir all ingredients in a bowl until well mixed. Using a spoon, place 1-inch circles on a greased baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes or until crisp.
I haven't tried them yet but plan to. They are supposed to be very healthy, which is another bonus:D

Is there any recipies that don't include molasses?????
Also, here's a treat for horses with a sweet tooth!(I've never tried it though.... :) )
Sprinkle some choc chips over bread and pop in microwave until choc chips are melted. Leave to cool down a little, then feed to your horse!

Chocolate isn't really something you should feed a horse...

I know, I thought that too, but my friend said she's tried it with her horse(she didn't like it though). That's why I haven't tried it yet, but I have heard many peopple give their horse chocolate, so I dunno.

It isn't good for them but every one treats their horse once in a while. (OR the hose steals it)
Me and my friends every blue moon buy our horses ice-creams on the way home from pony club.

I don't know whether chocolate is good for horses or not, but those kinds of treats are bad for humans so I figure the same goes for any animal.
I do know that chocolate registers as an illegal substance on a swab test and so you should never feed your horse chocolate if you're showing!

I tried a recipe called "Horse Cake" - was basically molasses (couldn't get it, so used golden syrup) Sweet feed (couldn't get it, so used Winergy Calm) and lucern chaff (woo! had this stuff!).
All the boys hated it, except the birthday boy, and I think he wasn't really tasting it!! It was his birthday & he was gonna eat what ever was passed in front of him!!

Its not really the weather to make these now, but make fruity horsey ice cubes, good for horses that have to be stabled / on box rest in the summer as there is nothing really to heat them up.
Get an old ice cream tub or something similar, 1/4 fill it with water and freeze over night, then layer sliced apples and oranges not to many then just cover with water and freeze for a couple of hours, take out, layer some banana and melon then just cover with water again, freeze for another few hours, then add some carrots, fill up to the top with water and freeze overnight.
I tip them out in the fields during the summer, they take a day or 2 to make and last about 20 mins with my lot! but they really like them.
