Hi. I'm new the forum, and am enjoying it so far! I have a lovely yearling filly who lived for the past year on really high-quality grass. She is now on a hay diet and my vet suggested supplementing her diet with vitamins. The vitamins he recommended are pellets and she shows absolutely no interest in them whatsoever unless I cover them completely with molasses. This works fine, but I'm wondering if there is a good quality vitamin supplement that has a molasses base to it. Molasses is the ONLY thing I can get her to eat besides grass or hay. She is just not used to much and turns her nose up (literally) at apples and carrots. I'd love to find a vitamin supplement I can use out of the container.

Not sure if any of these are exactly what your looking for but you coul look at them and see or do some of your own research on them to find out if any would work for you.

This one is a nugget type:

Or I would say just feed a small amount of a high fat grain mix (they always are the highest in molasses) and add a powder vitiman.
