Trisha DePietro
 

I am still on the hunt for a taste Hope will eat....Has anyone tried using Coconut oil?  What was your experience with it?  How did you use it? Thanks.

Trisha, you didn't mention what you're trying to get Hope to eat. A little something or all her minerals? I stay away from oils and fats other than those that add to Omega 3 fatty acids.

Have you tried Uckele CocoSoya Granular? I've used it for years as that extra special thing that will get my mares to eat generally unpleasant things. It's the top level treat as far as they are concerned, and they'll lick it off my hand.

Hi Cass....no have not tried that yet. Didn't know about the granular formulation....I will check it out. Thanks!  ( trying to get her to eat all her minerals plus her compounded pergolide is the goal).

Trisha,is pergolide encapsulated?
Inserted into peanut shell works well for some.

Lol!, Lorna... I do that sometimes with my horses and donkeys... Stara will take anything in a peanut shell... Midnight not so much.  Hope it works for you, Trisha.
