Totally off topic but it makes me laugh any time I hear 'coming soon'.
There is an empty lot that I drive by from time to time that has had a sign in front of it for the last three years boasting the seafood place that is coming to that location soon.
I sure hope the deworming cookies idea of coming soon is quicker than this seafood places idea of coming soon.
Where I went to vet school, they were building a new dorm close to one of our lecture halls. It had a sign out front proudly proclaiming its arrival "New Dorm 3 coming spring 2000." I graduated in '05 and they had just finished it that spring.
Everytime I hear the word soon, I think of a major MMO game company who says "soon" so often their fans have a joke that anytime anyone wants to know when ANYTHING happens it will be "Soon(TM)"
If the cookies are palatable I'm willing to give them a shot. I wonder how much dewormer is in each cookie? I imagine like 250 lbs would be treated by one cookie?
Michael: Seems the people who burned me want me for a job.
Sam: A job? Does it pay?
Michael: Nah, it's more of a "we'll kill you if you don't do it" type of thing.
Sam: Oh. I've never liked those.
Tes, that's what I would guess too. I thought a nice way to worm and give a treat at the same time. I don't have any trouble with paste either but would just be a nice change is the price was also comparable which you can probably bet it isn't.
A friend is doing the London trade show this weekend. I've told him to look out for them and get me some samples. If I can get either the donkey's or Truffles to eat it, I want to invest in that company!

I haven't actually put a tube in a horse's mouth for years... I feed the dewormer on grain & beet pulp.
Never had a problem yet, and then when I do have to dose probiotics or meds, not nearly as much fussing then either.
Me Too! I can't remember the last time I paste wormed my horses. I have two that just HATE paste wormers and it was always a big deal and I was always afraid someone (me) would get hurt. I started mixing it with their grain/pellets and voila! Problem solved....wormer gets inside horse, nobody gets hurt. I would be interested in trying the cookie though. My horses loooove cookies!
"My biggest fear is that when I die my husband is going to try to sell all my horses and tack for what I told him they cost."
The company launching them doesn't have a booth but it may be with a distributor by now. Anyway, I've asked him to look and I'll see what happens. It's a man, my hopes aren't too high. But give Uncle Jimmy heck if he doesn't hunt them down. I'll post any info I get.
Wait! If we put DRUGS into things that they actually want to eat and taste like CANDY, one might get into the "CANDY" and overdose on DRUGS!
Said totally tongue in cheek, I just remember this being the reason that meds weren't allowed to "taste good" when I was a kid. For fear we'd get into the medicine cabinet and eat all the good tasting stuff and die.
I'm imagining my fatty mc fat fat delving into a box of dewormer cookies.
A good horseman doesn't have to tell anyone...the horse already knows.
