Meet Fritz, Donna and Ravell 104

Fritz-and-Ravell_thumb

“Ravell was better known as ‘Devil Child’ before I found SmartCalm Ultra. He is one intense horse, to say the least. He’s a highly accomplished combined driving horse—in 2005 he was part of a world champion pair. He competes with everything he’s got, but he never learned to ‘turn it off ’ when not competing (or even training)…”

Last year, Kapri injured his hock playing in his turnout. After six months of stall rest and recuperation, he started back in light work…”

“Frisky is a black lab rescue dog who came to us as a 2-year-old from North Carolina. My daughter and I were instantly captured by his attentiveness and high energy. Up until about a year ago, he was an active, vibrant companion with a loving and mischievous personality…As Frisky got older, he started having a hard time with stairs, jumping up, playing with his friends and fetching…”

Meet Kristen and Art Treasure (“Art”)

Art_March2012-thumb

“When Art came to me two years ago, he was in pathetic shape – underweight and stiff from front to back. He refused to go in a frame, was obviously uncomfortable at the canter and wouldn’t even roll in the field. We tried several different supplements, but nothing made much of a difference. On a friend’s recommendation…”

Meet Deborah and CC

Meet-Deborah-and-CC-thumb

“I came to own CC after he had been through a trailering accident that left him shaken up but fortunately with no major injuries. When CC came to my farm I turned him out in the pasture with my two other geldings. It wasn’t long before he started showing signs of the stress and life changes he had been through, losing a significant amount of weight and body condition…”
