Being the eternal skeptic, when Jordan Palubicki arrived at my stable yesterday with the Medi-Muffin, and stated "it works for ANY horse", I chuckled to myself. I thought, "Let's go try it on Jazz, my 30 year old off the track thoroughbred, he won't eat it, he hates everything (with medicine in it)." Jazz turns his nose up to ANY mash, no matter how luscious, he sniffs out the bute, the SMZ, anything!
We broke a bute in half, wrapped each half in a Medi-Muffin and marched out to the pasture Jazz was in. Jordan confidently fed him one and then the other. For sure he would spit it out, right? For sure, he would refuse the second Medi-Muffin, right? I couldn't believe it, he ate both, and didn't even shake his head up and down - sure sign he is onto the scam.
Jazz is here to say that he likes it, it tricked him and a Medi-Muffin is way easier to use than making a mash and having most of it dumped in the stall. Since Jazz is 30 and is missing "a few" teeth, we are also keeping the Medi-Muffins around for his private stash of treats; they are soft, tasty, easy for him to chew, and he deserves it!!
Thank you, sincerely Amy Anderson and Jazz (Skip School).
