I just picked up a bag of Nicker Bait All Carrot No Stick cookies and holy moly, I think horse is going to turn into a spoiled brat he loved them so much. Unfortunately they're a bit cost prohibitive so I wanted to see if people had good homemade treat recipes out there because if I can make a treat myself that is similar to the Nicker Bait, I think I'm in good shape as the treat fairy
Or, if anyone has another favorite treat they like to feed I'd love to hear about it!
The Nicker Bait are amazing. . .We send one out with every order placed with us and people tend to order more for their ponies! I always break mine into pieces to make them last longer!
A great treat recipe that all mine love is made with grapenuts.
It is basically grapenuts, a little flour for stickiness, some molasses, a little applejuice and peppermint extract. You don't want to get them too wet, just make balls and bake them at 300 until they dry out and get a bit crunchy.
I cheat now and just give Nicker Bait, but those were always a hit!
