Timothy Hay is the most digestible of all hays with a relatively low protein and sugar content. Timothy hay promotes a shiny coat, good digestion, bowel regularity, and healthy weight. It is excellent for sugar intolerant, colic prone, protein-sensitive, obese and foundered horses. Timothy hay is recommended for horses confined to a stable because it offers more chewing time without the potential of impaction that occurs with Coastal Bermuda hay. It mimics the normal grazing activity which is from 12 to 18 hours a day. Timothy hay can satisfy your horse’s natural need to chew and graze when they are confined to stalls or can’t be turned out in a pasture. Fiber from Timothy ferments in the gut and is then used as an energy source throughout the day. It encourages good digestion, prevents conditions like gastric ulcers and colic. Remember your horse requires 2% of their body weight in clean forage a day. Horses don’t need sugar from grains or canes (they are not cows). Feeding Timothy hay with alfalfa (when needed) plus quality minerals and salts is a healthy simple choice! Hay USA in Weatherford, Texas has premium Timothy hay, alfalfa and more in stock year round! www.hayusa.net

We call it “Green Goop” Has your horse ever had stomach issues or problems with eating? Unfortunately, this is a common problem in the horse competition industry. Living the free life just does not exist for horses anymore, and performing creates anxiety for horses that turns into ulcers. Omeprazole has been a common fix for this problem, but long term, it can do more damage than good. Advanced Appetite, a small company out of Canada, has worked with veterinarians and have patented a formula that is all natural and made from licorice root, slippery elm, chlorophyll and aloe vera gel, that within days, fixes the horses stomach issues and gets them eating like they should! It completely changes their attitude. Horses LOVE it. If you currently or in the past have had this issue, we recommend you give this a try. You will never use anything else ever again. Tell all of your horse owner and trainer friends about this natural fix for the horses we want to care for. Advanced Appetite will ship anywhere to save the horses and give them the life they deserve. www.advancedappetite.com (226) 374-6093

For thousands of years, horses have fed on wild grasses and natural pastureland. They were made to run the prairies, with the sun on their backs and fresh green, nutrient-rich grasses going in their bellies. Unfortunately, nowadays it’s not always possible to provide these ideal circumstances for our equine friends! Many of our horses spend a lot of time in trailers, stalls and paddocks (probably more than we, or they, would like), and when we pluck our horses from their natural habitat and put them in a stall, we limit their access to natural and diverse forage. This can lead to mineral deficiencies, a dowdy appearance, and the risk of greater health problems. Hard-working horses and athletes also lose copious amounts of nutrients through sweat and are at risk for deficiency. Redmond’s Daily Red fortified mineral mix can bring your horse back into balance and ensure he’s looking, feeling and performing his best. What is Daily Red? Daily Red is a loose mineral sea salt that provides a full complement of all major trace minerals, plus key vitamins, to improve and maintain the health, appearance and vitality of your horse. • Daily Red contains a blend of 63 naturally-occurring trace minerals and electrolytes to support hydration and a healthy coat and hooves. • A boosted mineral formula, including zinc, manganese, copper, iodine, selenium and cobalt, to enhance antioxidant function, improve digestion, energy, and support muscle, tissue and joint health. • Added vitamins A, D and E to support vision and encourage a robust immune system, reproduction, strong bones and joints, and healthy nerve and muscle function. Daily Red is available at RedmondEquine.com, Amazon and most feed stores. Questions? Please call 1-888-654-3940

Equine Leg Magic In 2004, an all-natural mineral supplement was formulated by K.C. Kelley, PhD for use in a rapidly growing yearling gelding. He contracted tendons in his front legs and was walking on both front fetlocks. The young colt was given Dr. Kelly’s formula and because of his rapid improvement in 8 weeks, it was then offered to other horse owners for use with their young horses with leg problems. In 2005, the company, Equine Leg Magic LLC, was formed to manufacture and market the mineral supplement. The product was named Equine Leg Magic due to customers referring to the supplement as Leg Magic. ELM has been found to have positive effects on a number of horse problems and injuries. Horses from minis to drafts — from 10 days of age to 37 years of age have been fed ELM. There have been positive results with issues including ringbone, soft tissue injuries, hoof problems, and joint issues. Equine Leg Magic LLC is dedicated to giving good service, answering questions concerning the possible use of ELM for your horses and providing a cost-effective product. When you buy ELM the packaging isn’t fancy (double zip lock bags) and 2nd day flat rate shipping is included in the pricing. 352-283-6331 • EquineLegMagic@aol.com Website: www.EquineLegMagic.net

Sacate Pellet Mills is a family-owned business founded by the Petznick family. We began operations in 1983 as a wholesaler to Lakin Milling Company. At that time, we produced one product: our sun-cured alfalfa Standard Bread pellet. In 1985, we began selling to the public and expanded our product line to include Thorough Bread: a fortified pellet consisting of sun-cured alfalfa hay, cracked corn, and a vitamin mineral supplement to provide added energy. We also soon recognized a need for a product tailored to less active animals. Bermuda is a widely available grass here in the Southwest that when blended with alfalfa creates a lower protein and lower calorie feed alternative. In 2018, Sacate Pellet Mills purchased Lakin Milling Company, a longstanding and highly reputable brand. Lakin Milling had been serving our community with high-quality products since 1968. The mineral fortified products produced by Lakin provided a desirable expansion to our product offerings and a loyal customer base. Together, a stronger, more capable pelletized feed company emerged. Any combination of product types can be accommodated. Call or check the webiste to find a location near you. (602) 237-3809 www.sacate.com
