    Christmas treat recipe, what do you think?

    So I'm going out to see the mare I lease tomorrow, and I wanted to make her a little festive treat because I love spoiling my animals haha.

    Here's what I came up with:
    Crushed peppermint candy canes, rolled oats, honey and a little molasses stuffed into halved and cored apples.

    I'm anticipating this being pretty exciting for her so I'm likely going to save it for after I'm done working with her

    What do you guys think of that recipe? Aside from it maybe getting her worked up on sugar I couldn't see anything wrong with the ingredients, but I just wanted to make sure since I'm pretty new to the horse game.

    Aside from being sugary and junk food, I don't see anything wrong with it as long as she's not IR or sensitive to sugars. After all, it's not like it's an everyday treat.

    Alright, that's what I figured! Haha yeah I definitely would not want to have her eat this every day, she might actually turn into a rocket

    Agree with GamingGirl that as a rare treat, not likely to be any harm in it, so long as she's not IR. But you can 'spoil' them just as well without junkfood! Just the slices of apple(or cores of yours), slices of carrot, rosehips, other fruit & veg(not avocado or fig), a bit of alfalfa, sweet grass, fruit tree, oak or maple leaves, milk thistles...

    Got to be careful feeding maple leaves red maple is toxic to horses. Think certain kinds of oak tree leaves are also toxic.

    Oh, OK, omit the maple & oak leaves unless you're sure they're OK.
