De-Worm your horse the easy and stress free way with our ‘Worming Made Easy’ tip
We’ve all had one … The horse that hates being wormed, that just won’t stand for it and just doesn’t make worming easy.
So, out-think your horse with a little patient brainwashing.
Try this simple method of getting him or her to look forward to the worming syringe rather than shy away from it.
Once your horse learns this lesson, worming will become very easy and stress-free for both of you.
Two weeks before you’re scheduled to worm your horse;
Thoroughly wash and dry an old empty worming syringe.
Fill the syringe with some apple sauce.
You can make your own or use a jar of supermarket own brand.
Make sure you leave a little on the outside of the syringe tip.
Just before your horses feed, inject the apple sauce into your horse’s mouth, just as you would a standard wormer.
Do this daily until your horse accepts the syringe without fuss.
