Just posting so I can subscribe to the thread lol... I have the same problem with bubbles... The wormer ends up all over her face/cover/halter etc etc and I'm very nearly hanging on around her neck while she's rearing and spinning, trying to shove the tube down her throat, she gives you one split second chance and if you don't get it then, you aint getting it at all. lol.
Whereas it's more of a fight with the miniature to get the tube OUT of her mouth. - God help me when it comes to worming time of my 7yo 16.1hh gelding.
Bubbles loves gumnuts, so if she wants them bad enough she will eat the wormer that covers them, but for a while we had my farrier do it for me... He is a take no crap kinda guy.
R.I.P ~ Bubbles - 25yo tb mare - 13.04.2011 ~ 8:30am ~ passed away naturally and peacefully in my arms
