    Okay, googled.....L-carnitine provides energy and "feeds" the brain, it says. Which is good.
    My silicea is actually, I found after remembering the product I used, diatomaceous earth. It strengthens connective tissue( skin, ligaments, tendons) and helps grow healthy skin, hair and hooves. Strengthening the connective tissue I saw. Big time. Like I said, Hafi lost the spongy, flabby appearance.

    Had to share this from this morning....I arrived and found this hawk in the pasture. Obviously, he was not his normal self not flying away. But we got the opportunity to see this beautiful bird up close. He did die later and the park ranger came and took him away...he was banded. But he really was very beautiful.

    Poor hawk :( at least he was laid to rest in a beautiful place instead of being ripped to shreds by a predator..

    No, nothing visible. He looked fine, but I know nothing about birds. It was so nice to see one of these beautiful birds up close though.

    I bought DE as a possible dewormer thing, but after researching, decided that it wouldn't be effective once wet in the stomach. So, I have tons of it left now.

    I have found a couple of young hawks, obviously fallen out of the nest, not able to fly yet. I learned you don't want to touch a healthy one, even still a baby, without thick leather gloves lol.
    We brought them to a wildlife station to raise and release.

    The DE is fed 2-3 months, a whopping 6 grams daily.

    There was a second one by a nearby tree...calling to it when I would get so close to it. I was waiting for it to swoop down and attack me at any moment! It didn't though. Luckily I got to experience this without injury...lol.

    So you only feed the DE for 2-3 months at a time? Once a year?

    I fed it only once, one course. It's meant to help with skin conditions mainly and being fed spring and fall, to help with coat change I guess. That's what I used it for initially. The nice side effect wasn't planned lol. So, as for time of the year, you're right on. Do a month or so and then check if you see a difference.

    She looks like she's really enjoying herself and taking it all in
    I've started feeding Flo Vitamin C after thinking that as horses metabolize it from glucose (unlike humans and guinea pigs) if a horse that has IRS like she does can't produce glucose efficiently then they might not be able to produce enough Vit C too
    Since I've been using it she's looking a lot better muscle wise and has more energy again. Since she's been on the high fat diet she's no where near as 'wobbly' on her back legs but her arthritis goes against her for riding now I think
