*Easiest* way to get horse to eat pop rocks
My not at all picky gelding has turned his nose up at pop rocks. :no: They were mixed in his feed with oil and beet pulp, and he still managed to leave them at the bottom of his tub (very talented). I tricked him into eating most of it by crushing up a ton of peppermints, but he wasn't happy about it and this is obviously not a long term solution
I've read all the other threads about this and have some good ideas for things to try. Here's my problem though... I need something that is minimal effort so I don't piss off the barn manager and barn owner. They make feed in the morning and stack the buckets until night, so something sticky like molasses won't work.
Does it matter if I feed BPR at different times of the day? I ride 6 days a week, so I'm up for syringing them down his throat myself, but somedays I'm out first thing in the morning, other days I ride at night. If I do go this method, whats the easiest thing to add to the syringe?
