I'm just writing to thank Omega Alpha for the great Barnmice gift I just received. Apparently I was lucky enough to be awarded a gift for Barnmice's birthday, and what I received was a box containing 3 good-sized bottles of Respi-Free, Chill, and Sinew-X, along with a really cute baseball cap. It was quite a treat to receive, and I will be starting our GP horse on the Respi-Free and my mare on the Sinew-X. At the moment I don't have anything needing the Chill, but I'm sure I'll find an occasion to use it!
Were not going to try anything for him. We've decided to sell him instead. Because it is his attitude, he's always been very high strung, but he's also very unpredictable.
I was wondering if you could give me some advice on Herbs for calming horses.
I have a 12 year old appaloosa gelding and I've had him since the day he was born and he has always been very high strung and hyper. Which makes riding very difficult.
We would like to try putting him on some sort of herb, could you give me some advice please?
Crabbyness isn't the issue, far from, She's actually very pleasant when she is in full heat. It is the week prior and a couple days into her heat that is the worst. ADD, very spooky, over-reactive and really not rideable or trainable because she just does not settle into her job, very tense. Even if you try and tire her, she is still wound up two hours later, sometimes worse. In the fall and early winter months, she's a dream to ride/train. In about one month from now, things will really start to change again for her. The first heats are brutal.
I had always given her Projesterone injections 13-15cc's, every five days. It helps greatly, However near the end of the summer, she starts getting pretty lumpy from the injection sites. So last year I tried her on Depo first time, didn't work. They tried Regumate. But for her it took 20cc's (double dose) to effectively stop her cycle. Needless to say, it cost me a fortune and it makes poking her with a needle every five days look like the easiest treatment.
I'm looking to try her on something for this time of year, because it's a bit too early to start with the injections. With how hormonal she is, I would be very suprized (and happily) if a supplement alone could 'cure' her. ..She's a great case study for mare issues!!
It was great to meet you last night at the Cadora event and thank you so much for the bottle of Sinew-x! My horse appreciates it very much! I'm sure I'll see you at the next event.
Sidenote, i've been contemplating trying Pre-mare for my mare. She's a great study for hormonal issues, LOL. This time of year she starts to change from quiet and easy to 'unpredictable'. however I don't like to put her on real drugs until april or so. so I was thinking something in the interim might help. She didn't respond to liquid Fiesty Mare, so wasn't sure about Pre-mare..different ingredients though right?
