Best to train them, rather than just force them. You might have an 'easy' horse who continues to give in, but for a lot of horses, you're asking for a REAL fight, doing that. And of course, tying or otherwise trying to force a fighting horse, injuries - to horse &/or human are also likely.so I tie up Angelina’s lead very tightly and go at it. She hates it but eventually gives up.
I think you'll find, if you let someone stick a big, sharp edged plastic thing in your mouth and then squirt awful tasting stuff out of it, you'll work out why he objects! ;-)I have one boarder's horse here who is impossible to worm, he will pick you up and throw you around the second he realizes that's what you're trying to do. We have no idea why, he's so broke
None of them tase any good to us but I've put them all on grain/sweet feed/in beet pulp and they've all eaten their meal. I only put about a cup full of the food down with the dewormer, they have to eat it or I won't give them the rest of their grain, so they tend to be pretty agreeable.Well, I just dewormed my mustang by putting fenbendazole on her grain. She ate every bite so it must not taste too horrible.
Next time, I will try ivermectin in her grain. Not sure about Quest plus, as that tends to not taste so good.
