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

    We use different wormers everytime so that the horses don't come immune to them. And also apple flavoured wormers don't work for tess, she isnt stupid lol she knows what it is and she don't 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

    I will have to try this. My shetland actually opens his mouth for the wormer and then wants more! Strange boy he is though.....
