    Just Chill

    I'm wondering if anyone has used the calming supplement "chill" and does it really work. I have been working on picking up the hind legs but she is so nervous. I have heard that the meds don't make the horse dopey, and still able to learn, just in a little calmer situation. I just find it hard to beleive that it would work this well. Any insight would be great...the farrier mentioned it as an option, before I got her the owner had to sedate her to shoe her

    I don't think that a feed-through supplement is going to help you in a case like this--that's more for general anxiety and just barely taking the edge off a "hot" horse.

    If you can't get anywhere with gradual desensitation of her feet, Dormosedan may be the way to go. It slows the body down but allows the mind to keep working (according to my farrier), so he says it's the best drug for acclimating them to having their feet done, and getting them to realize that the farrier isn't going to kill them.
