But I understand if your horses do have worms then worming would be a problem. :)

we use different wormers everytime so that the horses dont come immune to them. And also apple flavoured wormers dont work for tess, she isnt stupid lol she knows what it is and she dont want anything to do with it'!

Do the same rubbing with the syringe. Inserting the syringe slightly and moving it about. Do that until she let's you without moving.
You can fill the syringe with applesauce for the next step of actually plunging it in her mouth. Don't let her head go until she's relaxed then do it again. I would do this as much as you can until she isn't resisting the syringe anymore. Good luck

sure was, at least you didnt have to tackle him to the ground to give it to him
When worming zorro, you just have to yell "Zorro, Wormer!!" and he comes bolting up neighing!
