    1. Disolve in applejuice and squirt it in mouth with syringe(if possible)
    2. Mix with applesauce and put in a old wormer tube and squirt in mouth, or put on top of feed.
    3. Open a dried prune and put powder inside and lay it on top of feed.

    I've used all with giving my Belgian his meds.

    You could also try leaving the pills whole and getting trickee treats and stuffing horse candy on top.

    See, the problem is that my mares don't accept new food well. They eat hay, and only hay, pretty much until they get sick. Then they get sweet feed as a treat to hide the meds in. I think I will just dissolve it in apple juice and give orally. Thank you for all the yummy solutions. I think once the girls are better I'm going to try and introduce new foods so I don't have this problem in the future.

    Mix it with applesauce then drop it in a little sweetfeed. I know exactly what you're talking about. If your working on a head/mouth issue don't undo what you've done. They love applesauce.

    Applesauce mixed with sweet feed worked! My one mare still won't take her Bute, but if she has that much fight in her she can't need it all that badly. Thanks for the applesauce tip!!
