Hello everyone thanx for your reply's, I am just getting back..
I am serious I could make a noise and flinch at my horse and he will spook. The reason for buying and thinking of feeding the supplement is that we are going to trailer my horse for the first time and take him out and about to a trainer. (Trainer is just for fun with touch ups on riding - niece and I going to take our horses out)
My horse is a 16.3hh Reg Appy with TB down in the bloodlines. He is four years old.
I have owned him now for four months or something like that..We have been doing our ground work and currently going to start the Fundamentals.
I am not green to the horse world totally
I bought the supplement thinking that it will help to keep my horse calm and easy to handle while at the trainers, I don't want him so high strung that I wont be able to ride him while there...."New area"
He trailers fine so not really worried about getting him in and out of the trailer.. poppy
He's spooky because he is young and hot...Not to mention that he has only been worked with probably a good year then that was it till I got him.
I am feeding one flake of alfalfa morning and night.
1lb rice bran morning and night.
2lbs beet pulp morning and night.
(I just took him off of 2lbs of soaked alfalfa cubes morning and night)
I have had him four months there abouts..Training is ground training daily...Riding somewhat moderate...
He spooks* timid
Thank you. draft
My horse has a mineral block and a salt block in his stall..Do you think that's enough?
Really I just think that he is young and really hasnt been handled a lot..
I wanted to try the supplements to take the edge off..
I wouldnt plan on using it all the time just when I take him out to different places..
I don't know??? He may change after I start the ground work with the Fundamentals.. spirit
that's the plan...lol! Put many miles on him. This is a big horse and I wanted to see if anyone seen good results with the supplements..
My horse only gets rice bran and the pulp..
Really his spooks are short lived just occur more than I like...ha ha!
Its funny, he will jump out of his skin when the wind blows then ride fine and boom there he went again out of his skin...
He is young and still has some manners to learn and really he is learning me too.
