I'm looking for a recipe for crunchy horse treats, like those found in farm stores. Thanks!

Here is some recipes that I have found. Hope this helps.
Apple and Oat Treats
Treat your horse or pony to these simple squares made of wholesome ingredients. Keep them fresh in the fridge. Remember not to feed too many of any treat too often.
1 1/2 cups unsweetened applesauce
1 cup oat bran cereal or ground oatmeal
1/2 cup all purpose flour (approx.)
Preheat oven to 350F
Oil a 9inch x 9inch square cake pan
Spread the batter evenly in the cake pan and bake for 20-30 minutes. The batter will start to shrink away from the sides and it will be firm to the touch.
Slice into squares while still warm. Keep chewies in the refrigerator in an air-tight container or bag.
Carrot and Apple Treats
Your horse will love the sweet crunchiness of these cookies. They keep well in an air-tight container. Never feed too many treats too often.
1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 cup bran
1 cup molasses
1 cup grated carrot or apple
Preheat oven to 375F
Oil two cookie sheets
Put aside a small bowl of white sugar and a drinking glass with a flat bottom.
In a large bowl mix all the ingredients thoroughly. The mixture shouldnt be too wet, and should stick together.
Add more flour to make the mixture firmer and hold together if necessary. Drop by teaspoonfuls, about 1 &frac; inches apart on a greased cookie sheet. Grease the bottom of the glass, dip it in the sugar, and stamp the cookies to flatten them slightly. Bake for about 10 minutes. This makes about 25 cookies, depending on the size. Store in an air-tight container or bag.
