Christmas Horse Cookies

Great idea for all you out there that want to get in a little holiday baking and make something yummy for your horse. I found this recipe a couple years ago and it sat and sat and sat and this year I slipped on my apron and fired up the oven. It is a pretty easy recipe for Apple Carrot Horse Cookies.

Here is the recipe:
1 cup of grated carrots
1 cup of grated apples
2 Tbsp. corn oil
1/4 cup molasses
1 tsp. salt
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup flour

Combine the ingredients and blend well. Drop the dough by spoonfuls two inches apart on an baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes or until lightly browned.I am delivering them to the barn tomorrow as gifts from Maddy to all her stablemates. They smell good and look good, but I will have to see if the horses enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them.

By the recipe it sounds like the horses will like the cookies! You'll have to let us know how fast they gobbled them up. :) I may have to try that recipe out on my horses too.

I hope you have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
