We all experience the moment when we have to use bute. If your horse is anything like George, it will smell it in anything. I did not even try to put it into his food anymore. His food should be sacro sanct to him, I will not sneak anything into it. Eating is a very sensual experience to a horse and they do it with great dedication and pleasure.
Syringing the bute is not an option also. Even though he might be tolerating it for a moment, he will refuse by taking his head away as soon as the emergency has passed. (I wonder sometimes if I should listen to that too?)
So, after many adventures, I came up with the following idea that works just fine for my gentleman:
Depending on how many truffels you have, divide them by 3 and you will know how many truffels make a dosis of 1 gr of bute.
Happy horse baking and enjoy feeding it.
