Lately, we have been getting calls from owners with horses in pretty desperate condition. This month, a 500k dressage horse with spectacular movement, looks and everything. However, he’s so dangerous, spooky, unwilling and hard to handle, the owner literally wants to give him to the trainer. Give him away! She is heart sick but in good conscience, can’t sell him. The trainer doesn’t even want him he’s so dangerous and a huge liability. This horse is trained to the upper levels of dressage, the horse of her dreams. What happened? Top vets have checked him out from top to bottom and no expense has been spared. Money is not and issue here. I believe his magnesium levels are so low that every system in his body is suffering. I asked my usual list of questions. He hates to be touched, brushed, bathed, stalled without his buddy, can barely be lead out the pasture. He pulls back, rears, bolts, strikes, cant stand still in his stall. The trainer, who is diligent and hard working, cannot ride him any longer. He’s explosive and dangerous. This didn’t come on all at once but rather little by little. This horse, on a scale of 1 to 10 is a 20! He has every magnesium deficiency symptom and he’s off the charts in sensitivity.
So, we have him going on our Magnesium Therapy Program. I will keep you all posted. My heart goes out to the people in this horses life. They are doing everything they know to do to no avail. I sure hope our products help this animal recover and return to greatness.
This month we have three horses with severe symptoms. I’ll keep you posted.
