We have all met horses that stand out. Santos is like that. He was a Heeler and he was very good at his job. He was an alternate for the National Heeler competition and he won a lot of money on his way to the Nationals. In one moment, Santos was injured irreparably.
I just had to tell you the great news. I gave my neighbor Tink one of the samples of Daily Gold you sent me, and she started giving it to her Appaloosa mare, Apryl. Now, anytime she and I would go riding and this mare was left in her stall, she would scream and scream and bolt all around her pen. We could hear her until we were out of earshot, and on the way back we could hear her again once we were back in earshot. When we’d get back home, she’d be soaking wet from forelock to tail and exhausted.
I’m finding this extremely hard to believe. Can it be possible that this product actually worked this fast? Let me explain. I have a, Kentucky Natural Gaited, KNG, mare who is naturally on the skittish side. Don’t get me wrong, she’s an amazing ride and solid as a rock on the trail, but she is the type of horse that can get edgy when things go awry or a change occurs.
My daughter’s beautiful Welsh x DWB mare is a wonderful horse. She’s patient, sweet and tries hard to take care of my little girl. But, Marigold also has a spooky side and sneaky, nasty bolt when her flight mode kicks in. In the 2012 show season, Marigold showed off a perfected duck-and-roll that tossed Avery often. Marigold bucked Avery off, plunked her into a ditch while going cross-country, and dumped her at their first ever one-day event together.
For the last year and a half we have been using Redmond Daily Gold on one of our top level show jumpers. After trying all of the expensive products like GastroGard and Omeprazole for ulcers and other products for calming and stress, we were about to give up on this horse.
Coming into fall, my 8-year-old mustang dropped a considerable amount of weight. Being relatively new to owning horses, this was the first time I had real concerns about her health. I’ve dealt with some minor injuries but seeing her ribs, hips and general lack of energy troubled me. Things needed to change for Lexi but I was unsure where to start.
A few years ago, I rescued a very malnourished, severely dehydrated, and overall unhealthy horse from 119 degree desert heat left with no food, shade, or water. I began nursing this poor animal back to what the vet believed to be quite remarkable health for (what we are guessing) was a 20+ year old gelding. He slowly gained his weight back, and seemed to be doing very well all things considered.
The contrast from our previous destination could not have been more stark. We parked next to a sand lot, enclosed by various cobbled together bits of wire, string, and corral panels. Within the lot were a dozen or so under fed horses and ponies. The owner was clearly in over her head. But we were in for a bigger shock. Following a brief introduction, the seller lead us to the far end of the property where a little bay skeleton was pulling mouthfuls of hay from the center of a round bale..
