• "Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?" --Mary Oliver

  • Your biggest challenge isn't someone else. It's the ache in your lungs and the burning in your legs, and the little voice inside you the yells, "can't!" But you don't listen; you just push harder and then you hear the voice whisper "can" and you realize the person you thought you were is no match for the one you really are.

Amy, when I had several old schooling mounts to take care of at one of my old barns, I crushed up the bute dosage or any other pill they needed with a mortar and pestle, then I moistened/flavoured it up with some power-aide. I then put it with a tongue depressor (it was like a really moist paste) into a syringe and gave it orally to the horses. Because it was like a paste it really stuck to their tongue so they had to swallow it. It also ensured they got the full dosage (minus what was left along the edges in the syringe). Maybe that might work for you?
