    What can't horses eat?

    So I want to make my own horse treat recipe beacuse i am fed up with looking online for a recipie when i can just make one myself so i need to make sure i dont give my beloved horse something he cant digest.
    I know that horses cant digest peanuts but what are some other things that horses cant digest?
    Can horses eat eggs etc?
    I was looking at a lot of good dog treat recipies and maybe just substituting some ingredients.

    horses can eat peanuts and eggs, but it is best to stick with known things like oats, molasses, etc.
    An easy treat is to take a box of people cereal, granola works fine, mix in oil and molasses and bake 10 minutes on an oiled pan. Let cool and dry and break or cut into bite size pieces. You can do the same with horsefeed. Add a bit of flour and oil and molasses and bake, dry and cut.

    I'll just go with some of the things you CAN put in treats.

    1. rolled oats the long cooking kind not the instant oats
    2. shreaded carrots
    3. Molassas or brown sugar ( go easy on it)
    4 a little flour or better yet whole grain flour or corn meal coarse ground
    5. A touch of salt
    6. Apple pieces
    7. Small amounts of pepermint flavorings
    8. you can use an egg for a binder, but with some of the stuff above in the right proportions you won't need it.
    9. Water as needed.
    10. corn oil or vegetable oil

    Hot bran mash

    In the colder months I would make the gang a hot bran mash once a week or every other week. Only I would include cut up carrots, apples, a few sugar cubes, and a dash of molasses. I would let it sit and all get mushy and then the feed was ON! How they looked forward to it and there is nothing better than to be in the barn on a cool night and listening to them slurping and slopping their nice warm meal .
