How to make a birthday cake for a horse!

Happy 4th Birthday Presto!? I made this cake for you and invited some friends over for a party later?

#confession This is the first time I’ve cooked for any of my horses. I’m normally an apple and carrots kind of owner but…this was really kind of fun!
How do you celebrate with your animals?
Keep an eye out for the video of his birthday party later????
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
5 cups quick oats (oatmeal)
1 cup flax meal
1 cup applesauce
3/4 cup molasses
2 shredded carrots
1 tsp cinnamon
Mix to moisten everything. If it seems a bit dry add more applesauce or water. (I added another 1/2 cup of each.)
Shape in pan. (I wish I had lined with parchment paper)
Bake for 25-30 minutes.
Cool on cooling rack until you can handle pan.
Remove from pan and finish cooling.
I’ve owned Presto now for four years.
He has grown so much and I’m finally ready to start sharing his adventures.
What questions do you have for me?

    Where do you get flax meal? Maybe in the health food section at the grocery store?

      Yep. I actually think it was in the regular part of the store too, near the flour.

        I just want to say, the cake was awesome! I made it for my horse, he absolutely loved it! If I also may say, I am a huge fan😂 I watched your bareback and bridleless championship video a billon times. I’m only 13 so I love watching it in hope that one day I’ll be just as great of a horse trainer as you. Besides that, I absolutely love the cake! It was super easy and fun to make

    That was no doubt fun. As I have mentioned but this is my only my second time talking with you. I’ve always loved horses but growing up never had that dream come true. But I love all animals and have been doing small dog rescues for about 11 years now. If I lived farther away and had some property it would no doubt be a zoo of sorts. We did have a birthday party for the first litter of Chihuahuas years ago. I hadn’t thought of what I could use to make a cake but the pups ” and liver just didn’t sound very appitizing to me” seemed pretty happy with a simple vanilla ice cream cake. They were so tiny I had to make the little hats. Somewhere there’s pictures of them. It was before we started rescuing. That’s been about 18 years ago. I actually still have 1 dog left from the litter. Chico. Chico is old for any dog. We do cook for these guys. Lots of protien and veggies for dinner. Ol Chico is fading on us. But he’s not decided to call it quits yet. I think it’s the great love for my boyfriend. I still have his son as well and right now 8 others. Although you can’t ride a dog, it seems the relationships can be very similar. I’ve seen people walking with a horse fallowing pretty much like a dog. I love that. I can’t go to the bathroom here alone. Funny how the relationships are different from person to animal. My house will be quite all day but these guys hear Mike’s car come around the corner and that’s the end of peace till the next morning. The party was really sweet. Think the horses could have polished off a cake apiece. Good imagination on the cake.
