FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION: I have a 3 year old Friesian and since you are also a Friesian owners I am wondering if you could recommend a good nutrition program to support proper cartilage, tendon, ligament and hoof development. He is currently on Black as Knight, small amount of patriot, lots of hay and pasture. The quality of hay and pasture grass here is mediocre at best.
If you feel your guy needs bone support (cartilage, hoof, tendon, etc.), try Cheval's Lame-A-Way - it is the most perfect balance of everything else you could possibly dream of. 18 ingredients to address bone related issues - all working synergistically for a lifetime of perfect strong, sound legs.
However, 99% of horses only needs good grass/hay and water 99% of the time to live perfectly healthy lives. IMHO way too many folks over supplement, creating expensive urine. I’ve trained horses all my life – mostly FEI level Warmbloods and I've held on to that opinion whether they were pregnant mares, geldings, breeding stallions, foals, showing…..
Although my Friesian is more Baroque than your guy, I have raised, imported, and shown Warmbloods for many decades, so I fully understand your concerns about rapid growth. OCD, Epiphysitis, etc. are a huge concern in the Warmbloods, which I usually don’t consider fully grown until about age five; so I suspect your concerns are identical. You are completely correct in one of the main preventatives being to keep their early growth slow and let them take all the years they need to mature. I keep my young Warmbloods ever so slightly on the thin side. I keep them away from flax because of the calcium to phosphorous ratio imbalance. I also keep them away from alfalfa hay for the same reason; and because of its high protein content.
Every horse in my barn always gets a Cheval Coat Enhancer and Inside Out. Those are the only two supplements I feed year round (except for the occasional horse I give a little Lame-A-Way to). The important reason I select those two supplements is that the “hayey stuff” you see in them is grown in the best soils anywhere in the world for grazing animals. This means they have the perfect balance of all the nutrients - vitamins, minerals, amino acids, omegas, fibers, and more vital to all horses. These soils are only found in a narrow strip of land from Western South Dakota to Alberta, Canada. This “balance” of perfect nutrients is the secret to our products doing things none other have ever done…in addition to making horses gleam, they work by making horses profoundly healthy. Even though in most parts of the world, the hay is less than perfect, by adding our home grown nutrients (pesticide free and chemical free and GMO free, of course) you get the benefits of our rich nutrients to help make up for those your own pastures may lack.
Many of our customers give these two products in lieu of vitamins, minerals, hoof supplements, etc. and find they save so much money because Cheval Enhancers/Inside Out help any horse bloom with health – whether owners care about the color and shine or not!
My Friesian (Knight) has been on only those two supplements since I imported him from the Netherlands as a young stallion. He arrived here with a dull coat and chronic cough. It took Black-As-Knight and Inside Out about a month to fix both. He’s been on both all his life since then.
You are doing the most important thing you can possibly do for the health of your Friesian – giving him lots of pasture time. It is so important a horse be allowed to graze all the time and to move all the time and play with friends…this will keep all his systems healthy for decades.
I also admit to giving my Friesian a small amount of grain, too, (about half the time) because I am used to “spunkier horses”- also as a special treat.. When I do that, I make sure it is a crushed, four way grain. (Oats, barley…whatever is natural to a horse and grown locally). Some of the senior feeds have a few vitamins, but since our grass/hay/supplements are so complete, I never worry about that one way or another. He has a salt and mineral block in his pasture, but he rarely licks them.
More importantly, what I try to avoid: pellets, flax, beets or bran (any of these might be made safer for digestive system if soaked 45 minutes in boiling water first, but who has that kind of time? Not to mention these can throw off that importance of calcium phosphorus ratio in bone and cartilage development.. If you like bran for shine and weight gain – just be sure to use “stabilized rice bran”. Then you won’t have to worry about soaking, but you still need to worry about the calcium phosphorus ratio imbalance.
