Picky Eater Supplement Feeding!

Alrighty, my horse, Max, gets sore joints and has a bit of arthritis so I give him the glucosamine/MSM supp Tight Joint Plus. It works wonders for him- the best I've tried yet (and, boy, how many I've tried..) But he has always been quite reluctant to eat it since he has been on it for a few months, and now it has gotten to the point where he is putting his foot down and won't eat it at all. He is a very easy keeper, and a bit on the fat side from being off work due to a recent injury, so I give the powder to him in just a handful of LMF super supp. I'm thinking some sort of soak that I could mix the powder in, but something that isn't high in fat/ calorie content? Any of this ring a bell?

Thanks for the help!

Soaked hay pellets, just a handful. Preferably alfalfa for the yummy effect. A handful won't hurt him

Agree with the alfalfa, my gelding is uber picky, he won't eat anything suspicious in his grain. He's a brat about it too, if you put something in his bucket, even if its just a carrot, he will knock the bucket over. I give him his supplements mixed into alfalfa, and he gobbles it up.

Alfalfa pellets or cubes are what I used when I had to give an icky supplement to my horse, too. I now use the left over of that supplement to keep him from chewing on the crossties to give you an idea of just how bad it tastes

Wow haha we do that with chili powder for my dog so he doesn't chew on siding! This supp smells really metallic-y so I can see how it wouldn't taste good. Thanks guys!
