Deserthorsewoman, if you get into cattle country the feed stores should have it now. Cattle are often given it in the spring when the grass is just going green to prevent grass tetany

So the MagRestore isn't badly priced as long as I'm reading that right. When it says 45 servings that means a 45 day supply right? So then that means just over $11 a month. Not bad at all. Obviously for the loading dose you double it for a week so the first month will actually cost the $16. Right?? I'm reading that right?? If so I'm ordering some today.

Yup, exactly

I'm in dairy country. No pastured cattle here
But I could try over the hill......
I did ask in the feedstore. They called their supplier who said they're not selling it singly, it was used in some feeds they make tho.

So was that to me? Lol I just want to make sure I'm not going to end up actually paying double because she needs two doses per day. Wish they had feeding instructions on their website.

Do the math and so many lbs = so and so many servings. Price divided by servings.
There should be info on how much to give. Or read on the other site I posted.
Check also if bigger containers are cheaper and share one with your friend.

Oh darn I found the feeding directions. It's 1 scoop twice daily. So double that lol but still not to bad. But it's actually roughly 6 cents more expensive per dose for the biggest container then it is for the medium one. I think I'm still going to order it today. If it's the miracle worker it says it is I can deal with the price. Plus maybe I can take her off mare magic then and lower her alfalfa intake as it seems this also helps muscle development by utilizing everything the body has properly.

Well I ordered the 135 serving size so I should get roughly two months out of it. Should be here early next week. Now to just wait for it to get here then start working.

For its calming properties it should show results pretty quickly. For the IR endangered horse it took about a month to see upholstery going away. Now, after three months, it's very noticeable.

Oh goody so maybe by next weekend we should have a somewhat peaceful ride? That would be wonderful. Now what about the ability to help muscle? I skimmed the stuff as I'm at work and pretty busy hehe. But I think from what I got is it essentially helps the body to "heal" the muscles after a workout which then in turns help to build it in a way. More like just allowing the body to absorb and use everything needed to build muscle? I think I got that right? Either way we can get more workouts in and be more useful if she isn't jumping out of her skin every 5 seconds.

I hope you don't mind me tacking on a question to your thread - but lets say this magnesium does help Rascal, should I supplement my other horses as well even though they are not jumpy? Or at least supplement that other 4 year old and not worry about the two older ones?
