There are so many things that go on day to day in many barns that can create annoying challenges. I thought I'd share our easy and fairly fool-proof way of dealing with one challenge... making sure medications are eaten. Every now and then we have a horse that doesn't care what we add to their feed but most are much to finicky. I turn to applesauce to make life a little easier. Applesauce has the perfect consistency to mix with any powdered medication and then given directly to the horse via a dose syringe. Plus the horses don't seem to be as offended since they like the taste. A win win in my book.
As we prepare to travel to Poplar Place for our first event of the year I'm very happy to have Triple Crown coming with us... Quincy has always been the type that gets a bit picky about his eating at competitions so this year we are adding Triple Crown's newest forage, Alfa-Lox, to his meals. While I've used other forages in the past, nothing else truly focuses on providing the nutrients needed for proper digestive support so I'm excited to see what Quincy thinks... We'll keep you posted!
