Mother is the necessity of invention.  That is certainly true in this case.  
My daughters' Morgan, Elvis, (WickedGoodKnightKiss) is very cresty.  He has always been an incredibly 'easy keeper'.  I have joked often about how I could keep Elvis on asphalt.  Honestly.  He's a typical Morgan, about 14.2, short backed, round, tends to be fat.  Ok.  We try dry-lotting him.  We put him on 'Lite' feed, and little of that.  He slowly loses some weight.... but he is still crested.  and Elvis has always been a bit prone to laminitis.  He's only 8 years old.  So, I do not even n go down the road of 'Cushings'.  He sheds out beautifully.  But, this cresty neck is concerning me.  So, I start hunting information, and discover that Elvis is probably 'IR'  insulin resistant.  It's apparently something like type 2 diabetes in people.  Which is the kind you control with diet.  Ok.  Gotcha now.  Everything I read pointed to this.  IR horses, like Cushings horses, and EPSM (Equine Polysaccharide Storage Myopathy) and RER (Recurrent Exertional Rhabdomyolosis) horses have a problem with carbohydrates
&/or sugars, which is the basis of most horse feeds.  So, the diet deal kind of stinks.  It's not easy to find 'low carb' stuff, which includes the 'sugars'.  Not just white sugar, but the sugars that are in: molasses, (virtually everything fed to horses, especially treats, has got some molasses in it), corn syrups, and all the fruit sugars that are found in apples, carrots, raisins, bananas, etc.  Then there are the treats which SOUND good, until you think about it - flowers and herbs (organic or not) will have the same type of sugars/starches/carbs as green grass, which is a 'no-no' to our IR/laminitic horses.

Geez!  There is a task for me.  Figure out a way to make horse treats out of nothing horses enjoy.  Ok.  No problem.  Ha!  Believe it or not, I DID IT!
I have developed a horse treat that can be fed to our 'problem carb' horses.   It is the only 'RICE BASED" horse treat I can find, and  I think it may be the only one out there. (*patent pending)                                                 Sugar Free Horse Treats do not have any:


Corn - the highest ranking NSC (Non-Structural Carbohydrate), 
Oats, also NSC high,  Molasses, Sugar (Not white or brown),
Corn syrups, or any fruits/fruit sugars.

I have had them tested, 3/2013
here is the breakdown from Equianalitcal Labs, in Ithica, NY

     As sampled:
   Natural Horse Treats
         WSC (Water Soluble Carbs)  12.9% 
         ESC (Ethanol Soluble Carbs)  9.3%
 
     Plain Shredded Beet Pulp                       

                             WSC                 10.7%          
                             ESC    
                8.4%

Sugar Free Horse Treats are plain beet pulp/rice based horse cookies, with  just enough flour to bind them together, and hold in the flax seed, which is fabulous for ALL horses, as it'sloaded with those great Omega Essential Fatty Acids. I make them here at my house, by hand, they are oven baked til crunchy, and all our horses seem to love them!!!  They come in 5 flavors:  Vanilla, Maple (NOT from maple syrup but only maple flavoring), Cherry, licorice  and Mint.  I use only imitation flavoring extracts, as real vanilla, maple & mint have alcohol in them, which IS a sugar as well.

They are  only   $3.25 / lb. *this makes them about the least expensive/cheapest specialty horse treat on the market!

AND, I do use ziploc bags, because they are practical, not pretty, not fancy, & not expensive.

I do not make the treats until your order comes in,  
  
 so they are literally as fresh as you could possibly get.  

Now, it also takes me a while to make these cookies, as I do make them by hand.  I can only make about 6 pounds a day.  They bake for hours, then I let them cool at least overnight before packaging them up to be shipped. I am not a 'store', and I do not have an 'inventory' or a  surplus of cookies just laying around until an order comes in.  Often, I will have to go buy the ingredients when I get an order.  I don't keep a bunch of that laying around either. I honestly don't make them 'til I get an order.
So please be patient, and don't expect your cookies the next day after you order them.  It will take me a little time to make them all. 


                       
The regular treats/cookies           in my oven    

 ***********New**********New***********New**********

               I now have a 'Mini Square' size.  It's the exact same cookie, but I roll out the dough and cut it with a pizza cutter.  It makes the cookies smaller and flat, which is easier for some ponies and mini horses to eat.  If you'd like
Mini Squares, shoot me an email when you order to let me know.

I have also just launched Double Flax.  So many customers are asking if i would increase the flax in the cookies. Regular Sugar Free Horse Cookies have approximately a heaping 1/4 cup per pound.  Double Flax has a heaping 1/2 cup per pound.  
Double Flax is only .50 cents more per pound, $3.75.
You can order Double Flax from the sister website


Order them directly from me.  It's easy.

  see order amounts/info/paypal buttons below.
  
  if you have any trouble,

  Simply email me at:   formyquarterhorse@hotmail.com  

                 or                   horsecookielady@hotmail.com 

  

  

I ship all the horse treats/cookies via U.S. Priority Mail,                                  medium flat rate box@$11.50 or large, flat rate box @ $15.50

 I can ship internationally, however, it does cost quite a bit more.  If you are from outside the United States and are interested in my Sugar Free Horse Cookies, send me an email, and I will get you a quote on shipping.

Occasionally the paypal buttons will allow you to order more than one
package, i.e. "two of the 4 lbs. cookies" and then only charge one shipping fee.  For example, I cannot put three 6 lb. orders into one medium flat rate box. If this happens, I will email you the shipping difference, or you can opt to go to a lower/lesser amount of cookies. 

when I am finished baking your order, I will get them to the Post Office and  the package will arrive in 2-3 days. 

Simple. Easy. Quick.

*************************************

I will make a nice mix for you, so that you will get  a couple of flavors. 

******EMAIL me if you want all of one flavor, letting me know the flavor.  You won't be                           the only one, really. I've got several customers who order all of one flavor.                         No big deal

There are approximately 40-44 cookies in a pound. 
They are about an inch across.   I almost always go 'over' the poundage, and I don't worry about it, as I am shipping Priority, 'if it fits, it ships'.  
So you will always end up getting a little more than what you order.
And if I end up with a lot left over, I will throw even more extra in! :)


I use good ol' ziploc bags (the easy kind to seal with that 
zipper tab deal at the top, not the kind that you have to push together!) 
~ about 1 pound/40-44 cookies fit in a quart sized bag
~ about 2-3 pounds/80-120+ cookies fit in a gallon sized ziploc bag.


These cookies last a long, long time, really. like months.. They are baked virtually dry, and they have no egg, dairy, fats or sugars in them to grow any molds, etc. 


They have only 5 ingredients : 
          plain beet pulp, rice, flour, flax seed,  & flavoring.  That's all.  Honestly.

  

I also GUARANTEE  these cookies.  If your horse does not like them, 
you can send the remainder back to me* (actually you will send them to 
a horse rescue group) and I will refund your money, minus the shipping cost

Payment: you can either PAYPAL me, using the PAYPAL button above or go to the PAYPALwebsite, and where it asks what you want to do, click 'send money' , it will ask what address, and you will use either one of my email addresses below and put in the total price of cookies + shipping

or

  or 
if you want to send me a check/money order, just tell me that in
your email

   
horsecookies.info    another website of mine, very short, easy to order

Feel free to email me anytime with any questions, etc. or
You can also call  my cell (540) 533-8535 *  
*it's infinitely easier to get me via email than by calling.  
I am notorious for not charging my phone!  :)

Here's one of my favorite customers, a mini named Boy Toy.

 Elvis is the black horse on the right with Shelby

We have got El on 'lite' which is a low starch feed, plus I give him a magnesium supplement as well, called 'Remission.' and "HEIRO", check out that website

I also feed all my performance horses, 
and my performance prospect babies "Source."
I believe it's good stuff.  Really.
