Meg Sleeper Sept 24 WEG Update

Sept 24

The cliff notes for today would be: exhausting day was spent in Kentucky!!! We packed up the trucks early so that we wouldn’t need to go back to the hotel to check out. While we were packing, it was really rather a nice diversion to watch Amelia, the 6 week old donkey filly, harassing one of her sheep. This baby donkey, who is not much bigger than a sheep herself, lives with her mother and a flock of sheep in a paddock across from the building in which we have been staying. She is… Continue

Meg Sleeper WEG Update: Sept 22

Sept 22

Todd Holbrook, our asst team vet, arrived this evening. He may be one

of the funniest people I have ever met and he has a fantastic eye for

horses. It is now beginning to really feel like a championship event

is around the corner (in other words…it is getting busy!). More

practicing of dismounting and untacking today, for a few hours

actually. We showed everyone the quick release snaps for the breast

collars (thanks Val!!) and all the riders have the… Continue

Meg Sleeper WEG Update Sept 21

Sept 21

Today we went to the venue for credentials and uniforms and that took

most of the morning. The uniforms are really nice. We rode this

afternoon and practiced handing off bottles (there are a lot of new

crew members here now and Becky wants to make sure everybody can

handle giving and taking the water bottles). Ellyn and I rode…

Meg Sleepers USA Endruance Team: Sept 17 Update...

Sept 17

We got the horses out early today because a film crew was scheduled to

arrive at 5:30 to film our morning activities and we thought our

horses would do best away from the bright lights and out in their

paddock. The one thing I have learned over the years (or actually I

should say one of the things) is that you rarely make the wrong

decision if your primary concern is the horse. I am not sure about the

schedule for today, but we need to move out of the… Continue

Dr. Meg Sleepers (USA Endurance Team) daily blog on her road to WEG

Meg has been emailing a group of friends and supporters daily on her road to WEG. She has kindly allowed me to share her experiences. This first post comes a bit into her her journey, but hopefully all will be able to catch up quickly. I have also added Meg's first posts, which should help everyone catch up,… Continue

Hi, Patti:

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!

Thanks again!

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.

Hi Patti, will you be at the Ottawa Gold show this week or next? I have a banner to return to you and thought I'd drop it by and meet you in person!

Hi Patti,

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?

It is most certainly a hormonal issue. LOL..I've owned the mare for 6 years now, she's like clockwork. We keep a diary in the spring/summer months to track her heats and she pretty much follows it to a 'T'.

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!!

Hi Patti!
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.
Take care,

Have you been on It's a great resource for shots and equine photographers.

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?
