Box rest ?

Like I didn't have ample problems I now own Minstral on box rest with a bleak leg.
Problem is he's decided he doesn't want to munch through. He has a bit and I'm throwing the rest away. I'm swiftly running out of ideas to tempt him. He won't touch apples at the best of times and evidently I don't want to stuff him full of sugars.
Any suggestions ?
