    I “attended” this webinar and got a lot of good stuff out of it. I’m limiting turnout t0 3 hours a day, feeding alfalfa pellets and IR supplement and have been trying the Thyro-L “metabolic trigger” experiment and I have to say my cresty little Arab is the healthiest she’s ever been and moves like an entirely different horse. Even though I’d limited her turnout and supplemented her before, I’d never been aggressive enough, I don’t think, but now I realize she was probably always a little sore all the time. Anyway, thanks for putting this on; I’m giving all the credit to what I learned from you guys!

Apparently I've been obsessed with horses since I was born, and I used to beg for pony rides on a regular basis. I started showing in 4-H, progressed to equitation and jumpers in high school and rode on the IHSA team in college where I also discovered the joys...
