No-grain Testimonials

No-grain Testimonials

Many people have sent me testimonials and journals describing their experiences of switching their horses from grain to no grain.  Here they are to go through at your lesiure.  More importantly, use these testimonials as encouragment if you are concerned about this change.

Barclay

This is a testimony from a horse owner who took the 2 week no-grain challenge. "He still has some Barcleyisms but is much more relaxed and calm."

Beau and Renew Gold®

This is a testimony from a horse owner who took the 2 week no-grain challenge. "Taking this old horse off of grain caused him to lose weight so Renew Gold® was added as a source of calories from fat rather than from sugar. She also has him on Succeed® for the ulcers. Now a year later, he is doing well maintaining weight and with no signs of ulcers."

Calm In A Barn Of Six

This is a testimony from a horse owner who took the 2 week no-grain challenge. "Apollo, the nervous TB gelding that you thought was bitten as a colt so he has an oozing neck that is calcifying, was always jittery and wouldn’t stand still. He now stands and let’s us do things to him without the usual ruckus. Even the farrier commented on how calm Apollo was compared to previous trimming times."

Crimson Feather Farm Diary

Two Days To A New Horse

This is a testimony from a horse owner who took the 2 week no-grain challenge. THIS IS A MUST SEE VIDEO "6 months before this video, this owner said her horse was hard to load on a trailer and once loaded, he would go crazy hurting himself and damaging the trailer. He was hard to ride and would buck when cantered. She could not brush him, saddle him or clip him. He was even lunging over his stall gate to bite her. She was at the end of her rope. I suggested removing everything from his diet except pasture, hay, mined salt and water. NOTHING ELSE! This is her video at the 6 month point."

What a difference grain makes!

This is a testimony from a horse owner who took the 2 week no-grain challenge. "The change in Houston’s attitude was miraculous. Within 2 days of removing grain from his diet, he calmed down, was quiet when being groomed (instead of prancing around and moving away from the brush), picked up his feet for cleaning, walked like a good boy, and was much calmer in his stall."

Whinnie’s Gut Story

This is a testimony from a horse owner who took the 2 week no-grain challenge. "The liquid squirts completely disappeared after after about 4 weeks."
