Merry Christmas!

I got invited to a super fun barn Christmas party on Thursday night. It was a house full of horse people of all ages and all disciplines. We drank hot cocoa,  made homemade horse treats, and talked about horses. It was perfect!

The horse treats were surprisingly easy to make. The hostess printed several recipes from the internet and provided all the ingredients. I ended up making my own recipe and I didn’t measure anything, I just threw it all in a bowl until the consistency looked right. Here’s an estimation of what I did:

1 cup of oats

1/2 cup of brown sugar

3 0r 4 apples, chopped up in a food processor or finely chopped

1/2 cup of flour

enough molasses to make it all stick together

Mix it all together and roll it into balls. Place on greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 for about 15 minutes. If you want, place a peppermint candy in the center before baking.

I haven’t given them to Baron yet; he will get them today. I’ll let you know if they get the ears pricked or ears pinned!

Also, for Christmas I want Baron to look like this…
