Blizzard came into my life in July of 2003. One day, when I went out to see my other horse, I saw this poor, dejected little Paint Horse standing all by himself in the corner of the pasture. He was 300 pounds underweight. Just a skeleton held together by rainrot. He had cracks in his hooves that were half an inch wide all the way to his coronet band. He had warts and ringworm all over his face, and had a hole in his withers that went down to the bone. It was severely infected. The look in his eyes said ‘just let me die already’. Nobody had taken care of him for a long time. Everyone said there was no hope for him. I thought differently. Something clicked when I reached out to touch him. He nickered at me. Ears pricked, he streched his nose out to take in my scent. Over the weeks, his eyes began to shine, as the rainrot scabs fell off, a beautiful red dun sabino coat was revealed. His ribs weren’t as noticeable anymore. Slowly he became a majestic animal. When he was sound and healthy again, I started him under saddle. He was amazing, never offered to buck or rear.
We were great partners, he knew what I wanted before I asked. Sadly, our partnership was cut short when he started moving unsoundly again. I had radiographs done on his hooves and they showed that over time his front right coffin bone had rotated down (from the hoof trauma caused by the cracks), almost piercing the sole. He would require expensive shoeing and supplements to remain sound enough to live in a pasture. With the help of SmartPak, which supplied BiotinPlus, I am able to ride my horse again! Being able to ride him again after a year of unsoundness was the greastest feeling in the world! This horse has given me so much, I will never be able to repay him. I trust him in any situation. He is my guardian angel. He’s the horse of a lifetime. Thank you SmartPak for creating a system that allowed me to ensure that my horse received the proper dosage of his vital supplements everyday!
