EQUION TRIAL (no affiliation)

A while ago, I wrote a post about equine lice.  (You can read it here.)

In that post, I thought my pony, Slick, had lice.  EEECH!  But, upon inspection and education, I realized that he didn’t have lice, just dandruff.

But how in the world did he get dandruff?


All I knew was that all the grooming in the world would not fix it.  Dandruff comes from within.  It is a skin/scalp issue.  What was I doing differently in his feed for him to develop dandruff?

And then it occurred to me.  AHA!  I had run out of Equion a few months prior and hadn’t reordered.  That was the first time in probably 15 years that I had run out and not reordered!

So, on a hunch, I ordered more Equion and fed it to him religiously.

I didn’t wash his mane, use any product or alter any other part of his regular feed in the last 5 weeks.

And look!  His mane is healthy and dandruff-free!

The only difference is Equion.


This is Slick's mane now! It looks great and the only thing I changed was adding Equion to his diet!

I cannot remember who first told me about it, but I tried Equion about 17 years ago and was hooked.  It was the first supplement I ever purchased!  This product is no-frills packaging, relatively inexpensive and is a nice, simple, everyday supplement that totally makes a difference.  I’m not a chemist but whatever is in it, does help their systems absorb nutrients, keeps the coat and feet healthy and also spit shines the reproductive tracks on my mares (when I was breeding).

As I’ve said before, my trainers always asked me what I gave to my horses to make them all look so good.  I told them Equion! I swear!  (And you know trainers hate to ask owners for tips…)  ;)

I have no affiliation.  Here is the Equion website.  They are great people and will take care of you!  FAMILY OWNED!

Slick and Dodger both have their healthy manes back... they have been restarted on Equion since Dec 15th. No special grooming, just good food.
