|this party hat really highlights his donkey ears|
Regardless of the weather, Opie got to share his homemade cookies with his two friends in between romping around the indoor like crazies--that being his two friends and not him.
|"you guys got that."|
I'm the actual worst at making homemade horse treats as any recipe I try to follow always turns out the same blobbish, gooey way so I've just given up and make my own version. I basically combine all the horse's favorite things (that meant heavy on the carrots and no apples for Opie), some oats to give it volume, and a generous plopping of molasses to hold-ish it all together. Enough time spent in the fridge and they turn out solid enough to make it from the container into the horse's mouth and that's all that really matters.
|opie was eating them right out of the box at first and then by the end decided|
he didn't really like them anymore...after inhaling about 7 or 8 of them.
|fortunately they didn't go to waste|
|they're all OTTBs so i guess they all deserve birthday cookies this month|
His real birthday present was not having to do any work because homie got schooled by myself and Riding Bestie the past two days. He clearly had a lot of excess energy to burn.
|meanwhile his friends were flying through the air like psycho kites|
Happy low key sixth birthday, Dopie Horse!
