Great advice if you need to feed your horse somehting he/she may not like!!
"Obviously we don't want to add sugar to our horses' diets, but peppermint essential oil is an excellent way to make anything more palatable to our horses without adding extra carbs or additional calories.  It is extremely concentrated, so just a couple of drops provides a strong taste of peppermint to anything you add it to, which makes it very cost effective as well as healthy."
