go to any dollar store and buy a carton of Epson salt. maybe a buck for like a quart of the stuff ? It is pure magnesium sulfate, a teaspoon once a day sprinkled on his feed should do wanders if his behavior is a result of magnesium deficiency.

Hypona Horse Care Products Inc. - Mag Vet - The All Natural Magnesium supplement for Nervous or Hyper Horses

They have something in stock called "cool as ice"
Pureform - Setting Higher Standards in Equine Supplementation
What are your thought on using it to take the edge off for a farrier visit. I spoke with her today and shes willing to come out in about a week to try again but would like me to try to give him something to settle him down.
The first one has mg but doesn't say which type( you want magnesium chloride for max. efficiency ). The second....I have my doubts.
Google MagRestore ....they ship, fast, friend of mine had it within 4 days.

Magnesium sulphate (epsom salts) -- feed that stuff and you will have instant diarrhea. If your horse needs magnesium, you should feed it in glutamate, aspartate, or citrate forms -- much better absorption, much easier on the system.

I recently started feeding magnesium that I ordered from Uckele Health & Nutrition - Home - Meeting Nutritional Needs for 50 Years And i have noticed a remarkable difference in my horses behaviors and attitude. I have also fed another horse " Mare Magic" which is dried raspberry leaves and it helped calm......disregard the name it can be fed to geldings also:)
