Bear gets Seminole DynaSport for breakfast, lunch, and dinner!
(Please note that Amazon prices on feed are higher than at local feed stores, likely due to cost of shipping. See below for links to donate monetarily if you prefer, or we also accept feed donation drop offs at the Shed Store at the front of our property!)
Bear gets Rice Bran added into his feed with every meal!
Rice Bran is a concentrated source of energy, which makes it ideal for horses that require additional calories to maintain body condition.

It is also easily soaked and fed to our seniors with bad teeth due to its soft texture - think oatmeal!
GutX is a supplement that we would LOVE to try on Bear.

One affordable way to add calories and a favorable ration of Omega 6 to Omega 3 fatty acids to a horse's diet is with Canola Oil!
Did you know that 10oz of oil is equivalent to almost 2.5 pounds of oats??
That means we get a lot of bang for our buck by supplementing with oil!
The Georgia heat and humidity takes a toll on horse's coats. They are very susceptible to rain rot and other fungus.
Medicated shampoo helps tremendously with treating most skin and coat conditions.
With this shampoo, we can get Bear back to a beautiful shiny coat in no time!
Speaking of fungus, Bear has just a touch of thrush in his hooves. Thrush is a very common bacterial infection that is another lovely gift from our wet and humid spring climate here in Georgia. Thankfully, it is relatively easy to treat with this topical medication!
A curry comb like this one is used in a circular motion to bring all of the dirt and loose hair to the surface, so it can be swept away with a soft brush. A lot of the common styles of curry combs are too stiff, and can be painful across Bear's ribs, hips, and other protruding bones and joints.
This style of curry comb has smaller, more flexible rubber bristles so we can get the job done in a way that's comfortable and relaxing for sweet Bear!
