Yes, DiDi is a skittish mare. I am beginning to think that she will be for the rest of her life. She doesn't go anywhere when she shies - but she has got the knack of shying down to a fine art.
So the idea is to get "healing herbs" into her, except - she doesn't like herb mixtures. So the cookies are not only to bribe her, but also to be a vehicle to get chamomile, valerian and garlic into her. Yes if I mix the herbs with sugar beet, then I can deceive her.
I think the problem is the basic cookie mix , "Her Indoors"
Used the ginger cookie base - without the ginger - we'll have to try something else.
I keep calling DiDi an "Irish Huzzy" - I now think "Cute Cookie" might be more appropriate.
