About 35 years ago, a friend asked me to haul his horse to the vet because the horse had a stifle injury and he did not have a trailer. Upon examination, the vet determined there was very little that could be done to fix this problem. However, he did prescribe a vitamin supplement called Total Equine Supplement. My friend put his horse on the supplement and the horse was healed in just a few days.
I was so impressed by the results, I got in contact with the manufacture, I put all my horses on it. Four years later, I received a call from the manufacture to see if I would be interested in buying the company... buy the end of the week the deal was closed.
That has been 25 years and hundreds of tons of supplements ago. It is the best prevention and cure for most problems in the equine industry.

Reba showed up with this injury, we don't know what happened. Reba was taken to the vet. The vet stitched her up and told us that it would take at least a year to heal. Reba took out her own stitches when she got home. Just 40 days later, it was healed and there was a very little scare left.
Annie is a 21 year old mare that is running 1D time barrels. Before she was on Total Supplement, she was running in the 3D. When she was put on Total supplement, she started running in the 1D and placing almost every time. Annie has been going to more barrel races and winning in the 1D. Annie was able to qualify to the Bonus Race Finals in Tulsa, Oklahoma. With 3,100 entries, Annie placed in the 3D winning some money.
Bandy was born June 28th. Two weeks later she was an orphan. We did not have any milk replacer, so she started eating hay and oats with a little Total supplement. She never looked like an orphan and has never had a shot or a paste wormer of any kind. Bandy is now 5 years old and is racing in local barrel races.
She came from a ranch that was under snow in New Mexico. We got her April 1st. besides her hay and pasture, we fed her oats with 2 ounces of supplement, along with a supplement block, so she could have everything that she wanted. We knew that she was supposed to be pregnant, but we thought there was no way because she was so thin. On May 18th, she had her baby. That baby had the straightest legs we have ever seen. The baby was also very healthy.
Lula is 14 years old. She injured her back leg, so her owner put her in retirement from barrel racing about a year ago because her leg would not stay sound. Lula has a calm personality, so she was put into the lesson program as a lesson horse. Her owner took her to a barrel race just so Lula could walk around, but her owner just could not stand having her there and not be able to barrel race her. She decided to race her just to see how she would do. She thought that Lula would run about 23 seconds, but she ran a 19 flat with not being in shape. The only thing that way changed was adding supplement to her feed everyday. Lula will continue to be a lesson horse and she will also come out of retirement and be a barrel horse.
