Ponies, Ponies, Ponies!

Wow!  That is all I can say!  Ponies, Ponies, Ponies! was a MINIATURE success!  Our thanks goes out to Meghan Sigtermans from Good Hands Horsemanship and Fella for stopping by to play with their cart!  What a fantastic way to end Spring Break!

If you didn't get a chance to stop by and visit Fella you will have another chance during our Summer Reading Program as he asked me to come back and visit all of his friends again as we Dig into Reading!  And for a sneak peek check out the pix on our Flickr site!

For those of you who loved eating horse food today and asked here is the recipe for Horse Oats:

Preheat oven to 325 degrees

1 Large container of Old Fashioned Oats
1 Cup Oil (I use canola)
1 Cup Honey (agave nectar, maple syrup or other liquid syrup)
1 Cup Packed Brown Sugar (or other crystalline sugar)
Pinch of Salt

Place Oats in a large bowl.  Place remaining ingredients in saucepan and bring to a boil until all crystalline sugar is melted.  Pour over oats and mix until coated.  Place oats on a greased jellyroll pan(s) or cassarole dish.  Bake for 20-30 minutes until golden brown.  Stir once during baking.  Cool on wire racks.  Break into pieces and store in an air tight container.  For more options you can add to your oats: coconut, cinnamon, nutmeg, nuts, etc.  I recommend not to add raisins or dried berries until after cooking.  ENJOY!
