    a little help here!!!

    Im new here and I didnt know where I should post this question..... if anyone can help let me know


    My new barrel horse is 3 years old.... unusually.... he is a dead head!!! Im used to very hyper barrel horses!!! And that's what I love!!! Now I don't believe in giving my horse drugs to make him perform better or any of that stuff..... but I was wondering if there was a supplement... paste....feed out there that helps get your horse pumped up... HYPER??? My only concern if there is..... is I don't want something that is going to hurt my horse internally!!!
    Thanks!!! Sorry if I posted this in the wrong section... if I did could someone tell me where I should post it?!

    A 3 year old is not usually one to be 'droopy', as you've said. How's his blood work? If there is nothing that is missing from his diet, and his blood is ok, protein will help, as will red cell....but I think i'd really check his blood first ;)

    I found anything with clover or bran really suped up my boy (unfortunately).

    Does he enjoy barrels? Maybe he's not really into that sport?? Just speculating. Had a beautiful QH years ago who was cutting bred and had heaps of potential but was insanely frightened of cows!
    She went on to do reigning and then showjumping as they suited her disposition.

    He does seem to enjoy barrels!!! He does kind of perk up when he see's the barrels.....

    Have you thought about getting a vet out to do some blood tests? Just as in people, there are a lot of different disorders that could be keeping that poor guy down. Many of those are easily treatable but have to be diagnosed.
