She also has dogs, and I will be taking them homemade dog biscuits. I have a dog too, so regularly make various dog treats which my ds then fights the dog for and ends up eating most of she really enjoys and appreciates
Is there a horse-biscuit equivalent? Sorry if this is a stupid question, but I have absolutely no idea about horses whatsoever!
Would be really grateful for any suggestions! Thanks
Not a faff as I am making dog biscuits anyway (as gift and for my own too). I actually wouldn't even know where to go to get good quality horse treats, and as they live on a farm I assume they get lots of fruit and veg anyway.
Oh, and by "visiting" I actually meant going to stay for the weekend, hence taking a gift. I would not be baking pet treats if I was just popping in! I am not that weird
You sound lovely (if ever so slightly wacky!) and my horse would love you to come and visit! He would adore some peppermint creams , or indeed the flapjacks suggested earlier- the treaclier the better.
So horses really do like peppermint? I sort of thought that might just be a myth. I'm now thinking a bag of peppermint creams or similar might be the best bet (and if her horses don't like them, well, she can have them!).
Dogs are getting biscuits though. I'm not swaying on that
My horse wouldn't like anything creamy or sticky like flapjacks or peppermint creams. She'd shake her head, flap her lips and spit them out again. Don't spend hours making anything for the horse/s. You do sound lovely - make something for your friends to eat, but for the animals. Seriously??
For the horse - apples, carrots, or my horse's fave. Trebor Extra Strong Mints. Yes, most horses do like mints. She hates anything savoury, although one pony I used to have, liked swiping burgers off me at shows.
You sound lovely, and a great guest, but I'd be in a really akward position if you were my guest! I don't allow my ponies treats as a rule, and I'd have to break that if you brought them. Take carrots or apples, don't take sugar filled stuff.
