supplement treats?

So I was thinking about making supplement treats, something that I could put the supplement in without bakeing it but something he would eat. We have tried watering it down, ACV, apples (it works a little) applesauce, mollases (eats most of it), and some sugar, im running out of things to try and thought this might be a good idea.

If anyoen knows of anyhting it would be great to make a treat that I could feed him without bakeig and some how putting the powder in in...

What about mixing the powder in some peanut butter and rolling it in oats? Or mixing it in molasses and mixing that into enough oats to make bars out of?

What flavors does your horse like?

He likes apples, peppermint, carrots, but everything I try with it it seems to make is worse. I pour the molasses on the supplement with a little sugar and it seems to work the best and he gets most but it takes him forever in what the other two can eat twice as much in less time. He only needs it when the bugs are out so its more for summer time. I took out other supplements hoping it was them and it wasnt.

Take a little oatmeal, quaker oats or whatever, and moisten it just enough so it's sticky like cookie dough. Then mix the powder in and a little peppermint flavoring or crushed peppermints and roll into a treat and leave it to dry for a little while. You could make a dozen and put them in the oven under the 'warm' setting to speed it up and make a week's worth or so at a time.

Like a granola bar? That may work with him.

Yup. It all depends on what he likes though. :) My horse likes anything that's NOT mint flavored, lol, so he's pretty easy to get stuff into. Picky eaters make it much more trial and error! You may want to add a little molasses or corn syrup to the oatmeal to make it stickier and tastier, but make sure to put in on foil or parchment paper so that you can get it off the cookie sheet once it's dry- it won't stick together hard like some of the store brand granola type things.
