    Does anyone have a goat cookie recipe they would be willing to share?
    You know, something with apples, carrots, oil, flax sees, oats etc all baked in the shape of little gingerbread men :)

    Well I know this is not what you asked for but seems to me you could add apples or raisins etc. to this recipe that is for rabbits and it would work for goats too or use as is just use your gingerbread cutter and there you go.

    Oh I would use alfalfa pellets and maybe soak them alittle rather than chopping up. Think I will give it a try, only thing is my goats hardly ever will eat any treats I try to give them.

    Ok here are some ideas I stole from another site :p
    for a dog but looks like it would work for goats
    Peanut Butter Rounds

    1 1/2 c flour
    3/4 c oatmeal
    1/4 c Wheat germ
    1/4 c Peanut butter
    1/4 c salad oil
    1/4 c honey
    1 t baking powder
    1/2 c water

    Combine all ingredients and mix on low until mixed. Make into 1 tablespoon-sized balls and place on ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten balls to 1/4 " using tines of fork. Bake at 325 degrees F for 15 - 20 minutes, or until golden. Makes approx. 20 cookies

    mix together 3 1/2 cups whole wheat flour, 1 pint warm water, 1 tablespoon honey, 1 tablespoon molasses, and 1 teaspoon salt. Stir the ingredients together in a large bowl to make a dough like batter and let it set for 15 minutes. Then stir 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil into the dough and let it rest for another 15 minutes. The dough will be very sticky, so drop spoonfuls of the dough into a pan of flour, then remove and flatten them on an oiled cookie sheet and bake in a hot 425 degree oven for 20-30 minutes or until brown.

    And another one w/ GARLIC

    2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
    1/2 cup dry milk powder
    1 tsp. brown sugar
    1/2 tsp. salt
    1/2 tsp. garlic powder
    1/3 cup veg. oil
    1 egg - beaten
    1/2 cup ice water

    -Combine flour, milk powder, brown sugar, salt, and garlic powder.
    -add oil into dry mixture until mixture forms coarse crumbs.
    -Beat in egg with a fork.
    -Slowly beat in water, adding just enough until mixture forms a ball.
    -Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and roll out to 1/2" thick
    -Cut shapes out of dough with a cookie cutter and place on a greased cookie sheet.
    -Bake in a 350 degree oven for 25-30 minutes.
    -Allow to cool and dry on wire racks.

    Notes : Store at room temperature up to 1 month OR freeze up to 1 year. Garlic is known to prevent flea infestation, as is Brewer's Yeast.
    Horse Muffins

    3/4 cup flour
    3 teaspoons baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    cup bran
    1/2 cup raisins (optional)
    1 egg
    1/2 cup milk
    1/3 cup molasses
    1/4 cup oil

    Sift together first four ingredients into a bowl. Stir in raisins if used.
    Measure milk and beat in egg. Add oil and molasses to egg/milk. Mix liquid
    into dry ingredients stirring until just mixed. Fill paper lined or greased
    cupcake or muffin tins 2/3 full and bake at 400 degrees F for 30 minutes.
    Makes 12. We make these for New Years Day treats for our horses' birthdays.

    Sweetfeed Balls

    Take 3 quarts of sweetfeed and mix with your favorite popcorn ball recipe.

    Here is one possibility.

    1 cup sugar
    1/3 cup light karo syrup
    1 cup water
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon vanilla

    Cook first three ingredients to medium-crack stage (280 degrees F by thermometer)
    Add salt and vanilla. Stir into sweetfeed. Grease hands and shape mixture into
    balls. Place on wax paper to set. Wrap in colored cellophane as gifts.

    Horse Delights

    Senior Horse pellets - about 2 cups with about 3/4 c water added to make a mash

    Rolled Oats - about 2 cups

    Bran - enough to make the mixture dry enough to handle (1-2 cups)

    Molasses - about 1 cup

    2 cups shredded carrots

    Brown Sugar - not a lot, just enough, maybe 1/4 cup

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease cookie sheet

    make small balls (if you can) put on greased cookie sheet.

    Bake 1 hour, turn oven off and let them sit in oven for another hour.
    these cookies will be REAL hard, but the horses love them.


    1 cup carrot grated
    1 apple grated
    2 Tablespoons corn oil
    1/4 cup molasses
    1 tsp. salt
    1 cup rolled oats
    1 cup flour

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease cookie sheet.
    In a large bowl, mix CARROT, APPLE, CORN OIL and MOLASSES together.
    Then fold in SALT, OATS and FLOUR until well mixed.
    Spread dough out in one big piece on the cookie sheet.
    Score dough with a knife to make it easier to break apart after baking.
    (Or try rolling dough out and cutting shapes with cookie cutters)
    Cook for 20 minutes or until brown.
    Let cool, break apart and serve.


    4 cups BRAN
    4 cups APPLESAUCE

    Mix ingredients together. Batter should be doughy. Roll out with a rolling
    pin and cut shapes with cookie cutters. Let dough dry and serve.


    1/2 cup TRIX cereal
    1/2 cup KIX cereal
    1 CARROT, diced

    Mix ingredients together and serve immediately.


    1 soft BURRITO
    1 CARROT sliced lengthwise in four pieces
    1/2 cup BRAN
    1/2 cup MOLASSES

    Lay a BURRITO out flat. Put CARROTS side by side right on top. Add a few
    CARROT GREENS and set aside.
    In a bowl, mix BRAN and MOLASSES together. Pour mixtures on top of carrots
    and roll burrito tightly. Wrap a green carrot top around burrito to tie it


    MIX in a big bowl:

    6 C. bran
    2 C. oatmeal
    2 C. cracked corn
    2 C. flour
    1 C. sugar
    2 T. Salt
    2 t. cinnamon
    2 eggs
    16 oz. sweetened apple juice
    2/3 c. molasses
    6 T. corn oil

    Preheat oven to 325 F
    Roll the dough into one- or two-inch balls and bake at 325 F for 45 minutes or
    until they are dry and crisp.
    The dough is very sticky; it helps to dip your hands in water periodically
    while handling it.
    (This sounds like it would make a lot....I bet they could be frozen in
    airtight freezer bag for storage).


    1 cup FLOUR
    1 cup WHEAT GERM
    1/2 tsp CINNAMON
    1/2 cup SUGAR
    1/2 tsp SALT
    1 EGG
    2/3 cup MILK
    1/4 cup CORN OIL
    1 cup MACINTOSH APPLES, chopped

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease muffin tins and set aside.
    In large bowl, mix dry ingredients together and set aside.
    In separate bow, mix remaining ingredients thoroughly including the apples.
    Pour liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients Mix until everything is
    Scoop into muffin tins and bake 15 to 20 minutes.
    Serve cool to horses and warm to people!

    Sam I Am's Favorite Meadow Muffins

    In a huge bowl, combine the following

    4 qts sweet feed
    2 cups bran or bran cereal
    2 cups oats (I used Quaker oats from grocery store) *optional
    1 12-oz can frozen apple juice concentrate
    5-6 carrots, chopped ( use food processor)
    3 apples, chopped *optional
    2 cups raisins *optional
    2-3 cups molasses
    1.5-2 cups caro corn syrup
    5 eggs
    2-3 cups corn oil
    2 tbspoon baking powder

    Preheat oven to 350 F

    Then add flour and water, alternating until you have a cake-like
    batter that is very chunky.
    The whole idea is to get this big sticky mess and then add
    a cup of flour and a cup of water, alternating, until you get the
    consistency of a thick chunky cake batter. If the batter looks too
    thick, add more water. If the batter looks too thin, add some flour.
    How much of each depends on what goodies you put in the cookies.
    Spray muffin tins (mini muffins are best) with an oil and drop by
    spoonfuls. They will rise a little, so don't overfill.

    Bake at 350 degrees F for 10-15 minutes.
    Cool on a paper towel.
    *or, pour batter into a large baking pan (well-greased!) to make
    cookie bars.
    Bake until center is dry and firm (probably 30-60 minutes,
    depending on your pan and amount of batter).
    Let cool overnight or for several hours. Cut into squares.
    This makes a huge amount (2 grocery bags full), so you may want to
    cut the recipe down by a factor of 2 or 4.

    Silver's Favorite

    10 cups flour
    1 2/3 cups instant nonfat dry milk

    1 or 2 carrots, coarsely grated
    2/3 cups water
    1/4 cup sugar (optional)

    Combine dry ingredients in a large Tupperware container that
    can be covered and refrigerated. Add shortening and mix with a blender until
    mix looks like fine crumbs, it will last 3 months in the fridge.
    Take three cups Dry Mix
    1 or 2 carrots, coarsely grated
    2/3 cups water
    1/4 cup sugar (optional)

    Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

    That's amazing! I buy a horse treat called Applez 'N Oats, made with apple pomace, oats, molassas, alfalfa and something else ( I can't remember at the moment :eek:
    and my girls go crazy for 'em! I've been thinking of making my own lately and what a boon to see someone else has the same idea!!
    With all these great recipes, I think I just might try it... :)

    Well my girls are really spoiled I guess and think BOSS is the only platable treat, even tho they get it in their grain mix. Now mind you I have not bought any of the horse treats. Some of them will take a treat now and then but always keep on searching for the BOSS
