Thanksgiving Day Mash

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone in Canada. During this long weekend I love to spend time with my family, relax, eat turkey and of course hang out with my horse.

This morning I decided to make a special treat for the horses. Seeing as we get to eat lots of delicious food during this time, I figured the horses deserved something too. I gathered up what I had in my cupboard and made them this quick and easy mash. I hope your horse love it as much as mine did.
