Updated annual nutrition program for my horses, including monthly checklist

Here is my updated annual checklist of  products for my horses.  Please contact me and visit the link at the bottom for my favorite brand.

Jan - March:



  • amino-acid chelated mineral and vitamin mix*

  • free choice amino-acid chelated calcium-phosphorus* in 2 different ratios, my favorite pink salt (or Redmond salt) and a natural mined trace mineral with fulvic acid*

  • chia and vitamin E blend* or  chia seeds

I stop all supplements in feed except the prebiotic one day per week (free choices are still offered)

  • stop all supplements in feed (except prebiotic) one day per week

  • 7 Day Parasite Cocktail in July and August. I stop the other supplements except the free choice minerals and prebiotic while doing the cocktail. Time the cocktail so that the full moon falls on the 4th of the 7 days. Contact me for the cocktail recipe, which is a blend of several brand-name products.


Oct:


  • stop amino-acid chelated mineral vitamin mix*

  • start 28 days herbal detoxifier/vermifuge*

  • continue 1 tsp diatomaceous earth/montmorrillonite clay/prebiotic blend* at night

  • continue prebiotic*

  • continue  free choice minerals

  • start Waiora Natural Cellular Defense

Nov-Dec:


  • start amino-acid chelated mineral vitamin mix*

  • stop diatomaceous earth/montmorrillonite clay/prebiotic blend*

  • stop Waiora Natural Cellular Defense

  • start vitamin E/chia blend* or  chia when

  • continue prebiotic*

  • continue free choice minerals

  • stop all supplements in feed (except prebiotic) one day per week

In the summer, I offer a unique electrolyte* in a bucket of water daily free choice as needed.

I also offer the electrolyte as needed year-round to the older horses who are prone to getting dehydrated.

My black-skinned Arabian with melanoma gets 1/4 dose of amino acid chelated copper* daily year round (any dark horse that is prone to sun bleaching may benefit from this) . He stops the copper when on the herbal detoxifier.

All the horses get one of several joint support options.  Contact me for specifics. They stop the joint supplements when on the herbal detoxifier*.

I sometime substitute Wachters brand Sea Meal instead of the amino acid chelated mineral vitamin mix*, if I feel the horses need improved hoof quality. I use 1 container per horse, then switch back to the regular mix.
