Alright well Junior just came back and he is in horrible shape, possibly the worst condition he has ever been in since my friend has owned him. I have offered to pay to have the farrier out to fix his feet and pull the shoes that the leaser had put on even though we told her to keep him barefoot, the chiropractor for multiple reasons and supplments again for multiple reasons. I will post a thread soon with pictures and the story off his condition soon.
Anywho which supplements are good? Are these good choices?
Weight Gain and Muscle:
Vapco Fat-Cat 5 - Statelinetack.com
Ani-Med Muscle Up Powder - Horse.com
GLUCOSAMINE HCL PURE - Horse.com
MSM Pure 10 lbs. - Horse.com
He is going to be put on both joint supplements because I have already heard and read wonderful reviews about people that use them together.
He is currently on a crap load of hay and we are VERY VERY slowly starting him on some beet pulp with senior feed mixed in and we are starting him on a cool calories regime. I am also getting either hoof heal or turpentine for his hooves.
A quick overview of his issues right now:
Ribs and hips showing
Flank and loin sunken in
Heat and minor swelling in both front legs due to incorrect trimming and shoes
Spine and rump contain hardly any muscle, same with neck
Wormy [we are getting him Quest wormer]
Something in his poll or back is out as is his right shoulder
So yeah any help is appreciated, suggestions and comments. As I said I will post the full detailed story once I start his progression thread.
Oh and on another note, I do not have all that much money so anything good and fair priced is welcomed :]
