Hello and happy Friday. Friday is typically our day for posting recipes. Well, in honour of that tradition we are posting a recipe today — but not for us humans. For horses. Don’t go away.
You might be thinking, well I don’t have any horses. How about calling up a local horse rescue or sanctuary, tell them what you have in mind, and ask when a good time is to call on them? Now, it may be you will need to know these folks already, because they are some pretty protective people, and might not think it’s a good idea to feed something to their horses from people they don’t really know. Call them up and see though.
The other alternative of course is to share with horse owning friends. They will love you forever for it!
Homemade Horse Treats with Cinnamon & Oats recipe
This comes from Joanne Masterson of Stable, Table and Crafts. Here’s what you will need.
- 4 cups Oats Rolled, steel-cut or quick-cook plain oatmeal
- 1 cup Flour Rice flour, whole wheat or all-purpose works fine
- 2 tsp salt
- 2 tsp baking soda
- 2 T ground cinnamon
- 1/2 to 1 cup water
- 1/4 cup molasses
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/3 cup vegetable oil Safflower oil works too
“This crunchy homemade horse treat recipe makes about 200 1.5-inch wafers. You can stash a handful in your pocket without breaking them. They last for weeks in an airtight container.”
By the way, Joanne also does basket weaving with plastic bags. They are really cool.
