Bimectin makes an apple flavoured Ivermectin - I haven't had any problems with worming horses since I found it!
Abby - that is a brilliant idea, however I would do it randomly all around the year so the week lead-up isn't associated with worming... just a thought! I really like that idea though, I'm going to do that from now on.

yeah thankfully Sonny will take it from the tube...I'd get sooo annoyed if he didn't.

Some of the BOs horses don't take it from the tube so what she does is she mixes it into their grain and they eat it up like it's candy

I would give my gelding the flavored wormers, but they don't have enough choices for the main chemical. I know that parasites can become immune if you use the same type of wormer over and over, so I always make sure to use a different one. I haven't seen too many horses that love to be wormed, infact most of them will try to run if given the chance. To only way to worm effectively is to make sure there is no escape! I also use the sneak attack, I conceal the wormer and give him a mouthful of treats and stick it in real fast. No jerking, pulling, or broken noses lol.

Theres an apple scented one that we get sometimes, it smells wonderful, but yes, I've tasted it, and it tastes like chalk. Our percheron will just about run you over trying to get some wormer, she loves it, no matter what kind!
