Christmas Treat Recipe for your horses

December 1, 2010

Here is a great recipe from my book that your horses and horse friends will LOVE!
I hand these out as gifts at Christmas – they are pretty easy to fix and I use them as fundraisers for horse events as well! These are similar to popcorn balls – only difference is you use grain instead of popcorn!

Kit’s “Popgrain” Balls (all my horses just love to get these for treats – we have a lot of fun with these)

1 cup sugar or Dry Molasses (Local feed mill will have dry mollasses which I prefer)
1/3 cup light karo syrup
1 cup water
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla (I make my own vanilla – I’ll post that recipe soon)
3 quarts sweet feed (You can use sweet feed, oats, I use a grain and a handful of kernal corn for crunch)

Cook first three ingredients to medium-crack stage (280 degrees F by thermometer)
Add salt and vanilla.
Stir into sweet feed.
Grease hands and shape mixture into balls.
Place on wax paper to set.
Wrap in colored cellophane as gifts. Y
ou can also add a tie to this made out of hay- braid together several LONG sections of hay to make a “rope” that can be added to the ball so you can hang in their stall.
