kitten_Val: that comment wasnt for you,
I know you were just asking a question and I answered it.
I have never used any of the pellets, I was just wondering about the paste I seen it in the feed store and picked it up, haven't used it yet, I might not never use it. I was just wondering if anyone had ever used it and what the results were.With a hot horse and my courage not up very high I figured I may need it one day.I'm farely new to the horse world,I have only owned them for about 9 months and my arabian for 6 months.
I actually tried quietex paste once before the vet visit on my that time VERY nervous paint. All I can say it didn't work a minute. Lol! She was completely nuts even after the paste. I gave it 4 (or 6 whatever is recommended on tube) hours before and it just didn't work. Actually we tried to give her calming shots too before the farrier (I don't remember the name of the medication, but it was from the vet), and it didn't work at all also.
If he's really nervous I'd suggest to may be try that daily supplement for couple months (like Calm&Cool). I know number of people doing that and the horses calmed down a lot. I ended up giving it to my paint because she was like "OMG" all the time (in field and ourside), and she seems to be more relaxed (i give just 1/2 - 1/3 or recommended portion). Now I want to try and move her away from this stuff to see how it'll go.
