Trying Again With Bella

Yesterday I started Bella on a supplement that I've heard good things about, called Tight Joints Plus. I'm going to try a few other things as well, even though my usual plan is not to do too many things at once, so I know which thing worked, if any. But I guess I can eliminate a things later.

On my list of things to try is turmeric paste, vitamin C, and chia seeds or flax. I'd like to know more about Epsom salts for joint problems. And if nothing works, or if it kind of works but not completely, I'll take her to the vet who did her surgery and ask for more ideas. Maybe laser therapy?

Last night when I went to get her out for her evening supplement she and Scout were racing all over the place.  Love the thundering hooves! They sure do feel good in the cool fall weather. We went for a short walk in the semi-darkness, did a little grooming, and she got to have a nice little graze in the long grass.

Bella is such a sweetheart. Crossing my fingers that the new therapies work.

It would be wonderful if you could find something that works for her.

I think it's actually the magnesium element of epsom salts that works, so maybe you could research that. Epsom salts was the cheapest way i could see to get plenty of mag into this old pony. :)

My sis has five horses and says it gives all her others the runs but with him it is perfect. :)
