There has been a lot of discussion about ways to stop wear and tear on joints, and I’ve seen lots of ads in magazines for supplements that are supposed to help horses. I’ve also been told oral supplements don’t work and injections do. What is the truth? I have a warmblood that I use for dressage. Do I need a joint supplement or do I need to get the vet to give him injections? If so, how many injections?
My horse always acts like he is starving to death and he is a “gobbler” when he eats. I have always been afraid that he will cause himself to colic. An old horseman suggested that I put large rocks in my horse’s grain bucket to force him to eat slowly. Is this guy crazy or will this help?
