So I started Comic (bay) and my dad's horse Red (sorrel) on Paprika yesterday. They both tried it then spit it out! I put a little bit (only a handful) of sweet feed plus 1 cup of BOSS and threw in the paprika. Rejected! Had to add molasses and even then it wasn't taken well. Today I mixed Comic's with his biotin and molasses before adding it to his BOSS, mixed Reds with molasses also before adding it. It was accepted better this way. I think they will start to get used to it and it won't be a problem after a while.
My husbands mare, on the other hand, licked all the loose paprika out of the bottom of the buckets yesterday.
This will be my first year on the paprika and the BOSS so I'll let everyone know if I'm seeing a difference in a couple of months.
