I'm a little surprised your horse doesn't like it- I think it smells pretty nice, and my horse never tried sifting it out of his feed like he did for U-Gard or Cough Free.

Hiding supplements in mash is my usual tactic and seems to work pretty well. My horse LOVES alfalfa cubes more than life itself, so I grab a couple big handfuls of the loose bits that are always at the bottom of the bag and soak with some water, mix in the supplement, and he eats it all up. Use whatever your horse likes and is most convenient for the barn staff

Yeah. He loves apples, so I'll probably try the applesauce idea to start with. I swear my horse is a mirror image of me. I'm a really picky eater (though I'm more texture, he's probably more flavor), whenever I let my room go his stall gets messier (on the flip side when I do get off my lazy butt and clean my room his poo and stall-stirring gets better XD).

Update Tried unsweetened applesauce mixed in this morning and he cleaned his bowl. Yay!

Drizzle a tsp. Of blackstrap molasses on the powder then mix in with his grain. The sweetener in molasses is safer for insulin resistance and such a small amount won't make a difference. To get probiotics into my horses I feed a tsp. Of homemake fermented saurkraut juice which is loaded with probiotics. When mixed with feed along with a few drops of molasses and the horse will eat it readily. Store bought is pickled altho you might find fermented kraut in the refrigeration section. Good kraut needs to be chilled to slow down the fermentation process.
