A SCREAMIN’ DEAL ON CHIA SEED, A REMINDER ABOUT HOOF TRIMMINGS AND TWO NEW MAMA TESS VIDEOS!






I found this great deal (below) on Chia Seed!

For me, found that Chia really helps fill in the topline of my Cushings ponies and older horses.  It is high in omega-3 fatty acids. Chia Seeds are also an excellent source of fiber and contain protein and minerals including as iron, calcium, magnesium and zinc.

Big bonus, Chia seeds don’t have to be ground like flax seed.  And, they are gelatinous when wet – so they work to help eliminate sand in the gut without using hard to feed psyllium pellets.

I try to always have the seeds on hand.

But, they feel expensive unless you stumble upon a screaming deal or buy in bulk.

And today, as I was shopping, I found this!

So, I’m passing it on to you… (click here or the photo to go to the website).

A WARNING ABOUT HOOF TRIMMINGS

I know, I know… no one wants to hear me say this… but –

After losing Dex (my beloved, elder dog) via an impaction after eating hoof trimmings, I have to remind all of you that this time of year is the worst for hard, sharp, brittle and potentially deadly hoof trimmings.

Yes… I have let my dogs eat hoof trimmings for years without issue.

But I still have to say it – horses’ hooves are the hardest at the end of summer –

Today, my farrier came and did his usual trims.

There were hoof trimmings everywhere.

Believe it or not, I picked them all up.

Yup.  I locked the dogs in the house and picked up every last one (I hope).  The trimmings were all very sharp and very jagged.  Exactly the kind that will rip an intestine.

After having been through a lethal impaction, I cannot not advise you to pick them up – especially this time of year.

S’all…

MAMA TESS’ NEWEST VIDEOS!

Mama Tess is recovering from her abscesses.  I’ve started her back on the Theraplate.  She’s still getting the Omega Alpha supplements as well as a bunch of other items that – if they work, I will tell you all about them.  I’ve upped her Pergolide (for Cushings) and also added Vitamin E to her brew.

I think giving her more Pergolide has really helped… but not sure.  Could be a coincidence.  I’m still waiting to figure this all out once she has been stable for a longer period of time.

Tess’ new (smaller size) Soft Ride boots arrived today so I put them on her after dinner.

Here are the videos of her first steps in her new boots!

    My mini, Willie, just severely foundered for the first time this year. Last year was bad, but this year – nothing. Till last week, when he got out into the new-ish grass for the day. Hoping that some bute, a soft stall, some soaked hay and some Remission will put him back on track. Tess looks great in her new “shoes”!!

    Really good to see Mamma Tess walking so well in her new boots. You are doing a fantastic job with her.
    My Arabian mare, Ziva, had laminitas and instead of rotating her coffin bone dropped so it is much closer to the ground. She wears built up aluminum shoes on her front and I call them her Jimmy Choo shoes. She was so sore for a long time after the farrier cut her too close but yesterday in our new cool weather she was cantering all over her area. I appreciate all of your information from your care of MT. Even if we don’t need it now it can be filed away for the future. You are helping a lot of horses as you bring Mama Tess back to 100%.
    MT really looks healthy and interested in everything. I am so glad that you are working so hard to save her.
    You are truly an inspiration to all horse lovers.
