Making horse treats require very little work and are sure to delight your stallion or mare. The most enjoyable part of making your own horse treats is watching your beloved animal happily devour them.
- Skill level:
Things you need
- Medium-size mixing bowl
- Apple corer
- 2 large apples
- 1/4 cup molasses
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/3 cup sweet grain
- 1/3 cup dry oatmeal
- 1/3 cup oats
- 2 carrots
Shred the carrots into the medium-sized bowl. Add the molasses, honey, sweet grains, dry oatmeal and rolled oats. Stir until well mixed and a chunky batter is formed.
Use an apple corer to remove the core from the apple. Use a spoon to remove a small amount of the inside centre of the apple. Cut the top and bottom ends from the core and set aside. Discard the remainder of the core.
Place the bottom portion of the core back inside of the apple to plug the bottom opening.
Fill the apple with the batter, leaving enough room to place the top of the core back onto the apple to close the top opening. Place the top part of the core into the apple.
Refrigerate until ready to serve. When serving, do not cut up the apple. Allow the horse to bite the sides of the apple and work its way through the treat.
Tips and warnings
- Use organic ingredients to make the treats even healthier for the horse.
