    I just got my first order of silver lining for equine, and I am trying to help my horse that has Laminatis. I measured out the 2 different types that I ordered and added to a low maintenance grain that I feed. She would not eat it, any tips on what to do to get her to eat it. My grain is pellet feed, would a texture with molasses help. I tried to put some honey on it but still wouldnt eat. I took her off the pasture she is one and will dry lot her overnight and see if she gets hungry but I am not holding my breath. Any suggestions????
