Distributors Jo Richmond and Tommy Huffstetler have a heart for rescuing nurse mare foals. These innocent babies are a casualty of an ill run horse industry. Tommy and Jo stretch their resources as far as possible for as many foals as they can afford. What lucky foals they are because Tommy and Jo insist on using Dynamite’s Equine Foundation Program on these little ones. Here are a couple success stories told by Jo and Tommy of these lucky horses.
Gemini was born on June 1st, 2009. The owner asked us to imprint her the night she was born. When she was a yearling she got hurt. The owner could not catch her and he called us to help. She came right to us. I know she remembered us from the imprinting as she had not ever been handled. Gemini had been holding her right rear leg in the air for a week. The vet was able to x-ray her and determined it was just a bad sprain but she looked terrible! They only had her on pasture grass and water! We knew we had to get Dynamite in her! We started her on all four of the Free Choice Minerals and Dyna Pro. We gave her Miracle Clay after the vet stopped the pain medication. We also feed her 1/2 oz of regular Dynamite with a small amount of plain oats/sunflower seed mix and a good quality fescue hay. I took a few pictures never thinking that she would transform in weeks.
Long story short—we were able to purchase Gemini at 3 years old (owners divorced) and had to start her again on the Dynamite program. The pictures are amazing and show what a difference Dynamite can make.
Sandy is a 2013 nurse mare foal. She had a bad upper respiratory infection. The nurse mare farm was trying to save her but the medication gave her diarrhea. All her fur from her butt to her hocks was gone. She was only 5 days old. We started her on Dyna Pro and made all four Free Choice Minerals available. All the foals in our care (we had 9 at one time) hit the 1 to 1 and 2 to 1 Free Choice Minerals the most then as they got to be about 2 weeks old they hit the NTM Salt and Izmine. She is still hitting all Free Choices steadily now at 17 months. We used Wound Wash and Wound Salve on her legs. We kept Sandy and her brother. After they were off the milk we started them on regular Dynamite and a good quality fescue hay. She is a cutie pie. The “butt” picture was from this spring.
