Anzac Day Treats: Biscuits Fit for Ponies

The Anzac biscuits, a delightful nod to history and a wholesome snack for our four-legged friends. Originating from the trenches of World War I, Anzac biscuits have long been a symbol of endurance and camaraderie. These biscuits, made primarily of oats, flour, coconut, and golden syrup, were sent by loved ones to soldiers on the front lines, offering a taste of home amidst the chaos of war. Now the Anzac biscuit serves to remember those brave Men, Women and Horses for their service. What better way to honour those memories then with a quick and easy recipe for your horse.
