Quick Tip: Worming

If you have a horse that doesn’t like being wormed, try this:  get a large dose syringe, or an old wormer syringe that you’ve washed out, and fill it with applesauce.  Squirt the applesauce into the horse’s mouth just like you would do with wormer.  After two or three times (over a week or so), you will notice a BIG improvement in the horse’s attitude about “wormer!”   I use applesauce about every other time I “worm”, and now, when the horses see me coming with the wormer, they line up at the fence and literally put their mouths around the worming syringe and suck!
