Reply To: suddenly refusing supplements

I had an IR/cushings horse that suddenly refused to eat his thyroid, after eating it in his feed for years! Eventually I mixed it with applesauce and used a syringe to get it down his throat. Guaranteed administration, but lots of work, too. If something else with greater volume was required, I mixed up a Speedibeet mash and mixed the supplement in there. He never failed to eat THAT stuff!!
