Nick’s Story

Wicked Nick, my heart horse, was taken from his paddock in the middle of the night, when I was on vacation. I dropped everything and flew home from Hawaii, because Nick meant more to me than anything else I owned. I had bought him as a spoiled two year old, and we had become a team. The people who took him had already taken everything they could from the house, and they came back for him in a sort of drug fueled orgy of theft.

The next week was a fog. With the detective’s help I posted a huge reward, painstakingly followed Nickie’s footsteps, and discovered where he had been taken. I was too late. He had been trailered off to the next state, where I couldn’t find him. Fortunately, Nick was a Bold Ruler thoroughbred, and had a high dollar value. That and crossing the state line (and being extremely lucky to have gotten the best detective in the Sheriff’s Office) brought in the FBI.

The reward offer worked, and so did the FBI. They found Nickie in Kentucky. I met them with a trailer, and brought him home.

Oh, what a wonderful day that was!

Unfortunately, it didn’t last. They had run him down the road, then left him out in an ice storm. Nickie foundered, then he developed navicular syndrome. Between the two, his feet deteriorated to the point where every day I wondered if that would be his last. Shoes and pads helped, but he kept abscessing. In one month he had fourteen abscesses. He foundered again, and that was the end. I had kept him alive for nine years.

Equinel™l would not have saved Nickie. It cannot prevent founder. But it would have kept him much more comfortable. I got very good at dealing with abscesses, and Nickie learned to bring them to me when the pain was just beginning. But it still hurt him, and it was awful to see him suffer. And I was out there every day, cleaning and packing voids, giving shots – I hate to give horses shots.

I finally found a farrier who knew Nick’s story and wasn’t afraid of him, but it took a while. Nickie had learned that when people were afraid they would hurt him, and he was very touchy. Bob was wonderful, but there really wasn’t much he could do.

The thing is, a horse isn’t just a partner, and it isn’t just a pet. You have a friendship with a wild thing, who can turn and walk away without a second thought, if you’re not worthy. They do what we ask of them, when they can. And they are so very beautiful. It’s no wonder we fall in love.

"Imari was gradually losing weight... She began to lie down to sleep, more and more. Finally she was lying down three times to sleep, on bad days. I mixed eight ounces of shampoo, which I applied dry.

Two months into treatment, I walked towards her with a halter and lead. Giggling wickedly, she thundered out of the barn."

"We were called by some friends who had found him and couldn't bear to leave him to die. His feet were in terrible condition...

We set to work, carefully swabbing the skin with hoof oil. Three days later we were delighted to find a much happier horse..."

"About the third week, I came in to find one of the horses cross tied, owner in tears. They had tried everything they knew to try, and he was still lame.

I had a couple of vials of Charlie's formula in the car. I painted his feet, and left a couple of vials. Four days later his feet were non tender, dry, and they seemed to give him no problem when he was under saddle."

I just sent some photos of Toby. His feathers are growing back wonderfully.

It blows my mind. He is so much more comfortable now. I only hope we can get a lifetime supply! I don't think I can live without it now.

Imari ... was nearing the end of her life. Her death was near, and inevitable, or so I thought.

After Marlene began treating Imari, it was as if she had been given a dip in the fountain of youth. She is sound and cantering for fun. This is an amazing product. Truly a gift to the horse world.

Amor Reto our 25 yr old Hanoverian's hooves were horrendous before Equinell hoof oil treatments. After the 1st treatment his hooves were visibly better. After four treatments inside and out the fungus has exponentially subsided, and his frog has shown regrowth and he's much more comfortable.

Einan came to Legacy Farm with an advanced case of thrush. He was noticeably uncomfortable. After four Equinell hoof oil treatments the smell has vanished there is no more exubale and he is much more willing to let us work on his hooves.
