I love you guys. I mean it. You offered up so many great suggestions and recipes on yesterday's post, I will forever be in your debt.
Never in a million years would I have thought Hank might take his medicine if I simply mixed it in with a little feed.
That method worked for so many of your horses, I had to try it.
Last night I mixed Hank's medicine with applesauce, spooned it over a bed of timothy pellets, then drizzled it with molasses.
I've watched enough cooking shows to know the importance of presentation.
I considered using a china plate or, at the very least, Fiestaware, then thought better of it.
Anyway, I took "dessert" out to the barn and Hank dove right in, much to Lucy's dismay.
Lucy: This doesn't seem fair at all.
Me: It's not polite to stare at Hank while he's eating.
Me: Beg all you want, but you're not getting any.
Hank: Is that all there is?
Me: Yes, except for that little bit on your whiskers.
We've got 22 more servings to get through before the antibiotics run out, and Hank might turn his nose up at the applesauce/molasses concoction at any time, but that's ok. I've got plenty more recipes up my sleeve now, thanks to you all. I can't wait to try the meds and jelly on bread. I'm thinkin' a nice sourdough, or maybe raisin... I wonder if he'd like English muffins?
