My trainer recommended putting Riva on Red Cell supplement for added energy, which I am not opposed to trying. Riva normally is not a picky eater....but she is turning her nose up at this supplement. Has anyone used this product and had trouble with their horse eating it?
I picked up a gallon of the liquid Red Cell at my local feed store and tried giving Riva 1 ounce of it, mixed with a small portion of her feed on Monday....she took a bite and flipped her lip up, smacked her lips around, and walked away from it.
Tuesday, I mixed up just a 1/2 ounce with a small amount of her feed and drizzled molassas over it (which normally gets her to eat anything!). She tried it again and walked away from it.
Red Cell does come in pellets that I can order, but thought I would poll my blogger friends first and see if anyone has used this product and had trouble getting their horse to eat it. I don't want to resort to giving it orally with a syringe.
Thought I would try it in applesauce tonight and see if Riva will go for that...
