Want to do something extra special for your horse? Home-baked horse snacks are not only a delicious treat for your horse, but make a great gift for horse-lovers as well! Simply put all of the ingredients into a jar, tie a bow around it and - voila! An individual, homemade gift is ready! These tasty treats are guaranteed to be a success with our irresistible recipe.
This basic recipe can be spiced up with a range of different ingredients to add that personal touch, including mint, shredded carrot or shredded apple, depending on your horse’s personal preference!
For the basic treats you will need:
- 500g sugar beet syrup
- 400g wholemeal flour
- 300g wholemeal oats
Add any additional ingredients to taste.
Mix all of the ingredients together well and knead until a dough is formed. If it is too firm, add a little water to loosen it and, if the dough is too loose, thicken it with some more flour. Be careful not to add too much flour or the dough will become sticky.
Shape the dough into finger-thick rolls and cut into pieces about 2cm long. Place on a baking sheet and place in a preheated oven at approximately 180°C (fan) for 10 minutes. When the treats are brown and crispy, remove from the oven and leave to cool. Once they are completely dry and cool, store in an airtight container.
These treats taste best when eaten within the first two days after baking.

The Bengal is a truly unique cat breed. A 'house tiger' in the truest sense, Bengal breeders go for a bit of wild cat blood, with wildcat hybrids like Bengals or Savannahs proving the latest craze in the world of breeding! Just what is a hybrid cat, and what needs to be taken into account when giving a home to a wild cat cross? Our breed description provides answers.
Big cat hybrids could be found in the zoos of Europe at the beginning of the 19th century. This ultimately didn't prove practical for zoos, but transferred well to the world of small cats, with ever greater enthusiasm shown for so-called wild cat hybrids being developed from the pairing of wild cat breeds with domesticated indoor cats. The most well-known example is the Bengal, which resulted from crossing a tame black domestic cat with a wild Asian leopard cat. The result was a cat breed that proves a real hit thanks to its elongated body and extraordinary fur colouring. However, its proximity to its wild relatives sometimes requires an experienced hand.
