    He eats around his supplements.

    Does anyone have advice on how to deal with my gelding eating around his supplements? I've tried mixing them in thoroughly, putting them on the top, putting them on the bottom, and even adding a little water so that the powders stick to the grain, but nothing has been working. I was thinking of maybe adding a tiny bit of molasses to mask anything he might be tasting which is putting him off. Anyone have suggestions?

    My 24 y/o gelding gets MSM for his arthritis, and I just add water to his feed and stir in the supplement until it's dissolved into the water. When the water's absorbed into the grain pellets, I give him his food.

    I've done that with all my horses when they need supplements or deworming, and never have they turned down their food.

    You can try the molasses, but if he's good about being paste dewormed you can always use an old dewormer tube and fill it with applesauce, with his supplements mixed in. That usually works, too.

    I was going to suggest the paste wormer tube, as well. Anything applesauce flavored works for my horses. . . Good luck!
