Making you're own horse treats.... Anyone else do it?

I absolutely love making them myself, it's cheaper and I love to bake. All the horses at my barn love them and they are so simple to make. I was wondering if anyone else did it too, I'd love to get more recipes.

Here is the one I use:
1 cup oatmeal (uncooked)
1 cup flour
1 cup shredded carrots
1 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. sugar
2 tbsp. vegetable oil
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup molasses

All you have to do is mix them together (adding the molasses last), make little balls, put them on a cookie sheet, and bake them on 350 for about 15 mins

Here is how mine turned out:

Horse Cookies ...

I've made horse cookies for my horses too! They love them. Of course they'll eat just about anything.

I saw a recipe online that had crushed peppermint candies in it. I'd like to try that one.

Great thread. I wish I hadn't lost my horse cook book I would love to try the recipe you have up there. There are a couple books out there that are made specifically for horse treats and cookies etc.

I use the above recipe all the time. I usually add apples to it though. They adore the treats....even my mother likes to eat them.

My dad has tasted one before he knew they were for the horses, he said they were a little dry

I'll have to try making some. I'm sure my boys would enjoy them.

I had one of those horse treat cook books years ago, but I've misplaced it. I make my own dog biscuits and think I will start doing horse treats again. Thanks for the recipe!

I used to make horse treats and dog cookies. The horses that I had at the time loved them but I don't think Cliff would eat them. He is really picky.
