This youngster does every trick in the book to get away from my putting the wormer in her mouth. Help!

I'm an advocate for the liquid invermectin which my vet left with me for use with a very stubborn, fractious mare. She takes it in her oats, sweetened for the day with a bit of molasses. A cinch. I read about it here on the list.

Hello Sylvia,
The problem here is one of proper halter training. While haltered horses are suppose to be quiet and responsive to the handler. For specific recommendations see Training Horses Training Your Horse's Mind Halter Training and Tying Horses.

I just purchased the new vanilla-flavored liquid Pyrantel Pamoate (aka Strongid) wormer put out by Farnam.

Is the liquid Ivermectin something that's readily available to the layman, or just via the vet?

I have not seen a liquid ivermectin labelled for horses that is over the counter.
