    Anyone have any recipes for horse cookies?

    I've always wanted to make my own, my horse actually LOVES peppermint cookies!

    I thought making my own, I could add stuff as needed - for example garlic in spring and summer to keep the bugs off her. Extra Vit E and perhaps C in winter....

    I have a couple of recipies around here somehwere but I can't fine them! I will look better tomorrow and see if I can dig them up. I remember using sweet feed as one of the ingredients. You could also try googling it and see if anything comes up for you.

    Thanks Standard..... I've looked a bit on line - I am looking for something TOTALLY easy - less cooking and mixing the better - even something I can ball up in my hand would be awesome!

    I always thought that horse cookies were what came from the south end of a horse. [​IMG]

    My mom would mix sweet feed, bran, molasses and no sugar added apple sauce together untill a loose dough formed, rolled them into balls and baked. I don't remember amounts or baking time. I'll ask her if she still has the recipe though.
