Meet "Mister Gigolo: aka Jigger - can you believe he is 28 years old?
We're celebrating senior horses this week and Chelsea L shared Jigger's amazing story with us:

"This little QH has spent 20 years with me - TASMANIA, Victoria and finally WA - he’s one unicorn I wish I took more advantage of in my younger years but in saying that he regained my confidence in my 30’s once again - I only wish he was 10 years younger. I’ll love him until the last day 🧡

This was him April 2021 @ the showman where he placed 1st. He’s had a number of years off she still managed to show me he hasn’t forgotten a thing. We don’t discuss his age, as I feel he’s in denial about being close to 30 🤫🤣"

Jigger is fuelled by T&R Pony Maintenance, and doesn't he look brilliant?

INSECT BITES - This poor galloway had a terrible reaction to mozzies recently across his whole body, and even when rugged he still struggles with bites around his ears and legs. 

He has just started on Itch Free, which can help to reduce inflammation and allergic reactions and even keep insects away. 

With rain around and warmer temperatures insect numbers are on the rise.We are seeing a lot of bite reactions in horses and ponies already. Itch-Free is a great feed supplement that helps with bites and allergies from the inside out. 

Available online and postage Australia wide.

TIP TUESDAY - Shiny Coats ✨
Most horses are shedding their winter coats now, and the new glory of their summer coat is coming through! So how do you make sure that summer coat is bright, healthy and shiny?  Here are 5 tips for enhancing coat shine in your horse:

✨ Feed a balanced diet - this is important for every aspect of horse health, but for coat shine and colour, nutrient imbalances can have a big impact. Make sure what you are feeding meets their requirements, and that the ratios of vitamins and minerals are correct. Too much or too little of minerals like copper and zinc can change the colouring in a horses coat.

✨Choose quality protein sources - hair is mostly made up of protein, so protein and essential amino acids are needed to grow healthy coats. But did you know that feeds classed as better sources of protein will contain higher amounts of essential amino acids? Make sure you choose feeds that contain quality protein sources.

✨ Feed oils with omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids - oils and fatty acids not only improve the health of their coat, but also increase shine. They can also be a good source of energy and conditioning.

✨ Watch out for worms - worm and parasite burdens can turn a horses coat dull and brittle. Keep on top of worms with regular faecal egg counts, worming and paddock rotations.

✨ Brush brush brush - brushing helps to remove dirt and dead hair, and also to increase blood flow. It stimulates the glands in the horses skin, which helps to release their natural oils and enhance shine and health.

If you need help balancing your horses diet, send us a message or try our custom diet program.

TIP TUESDAY - Helping your Senior Horse
Once our horses get to a certain age, their bodies start to change and their health can decline. So here are some things that you can do to keep them healthy:

1️⃣ Keep them moving - there's an old saying "use it or lose it!" While older horses may not be competitive or ridden anymore, regular exercise within their abilities can be good for their joints, mobility and mind. Movement can also help to ease some aches and pains.

2️⃣ Protect their immunity where you can - as a horse ages their immune function can decrease, making them more susceptible to infections or diseases. Keep them up to date with vaccinations, and if introducing new horses to a property or taking your older horse off site, try to use good biosecurity measures.

3️⃣ Work out their health base line - keep a record of their normal heart rate, respiration and temperature so you have something to compare it too if you are worried. Know the warning signs of some of the common older horse conditions like Cushings or EMS.

4️⃣ Track their condition - calculate their weight and take regular photos of them from the side, back and front to help you pick up on any changes. While it's important to watch out for weight loss, don't let them get overweight! Extra weight on older joints can contribute to mobility issues.

5️⃣ Dental checks - it's important in older horses to have their teeth checked annually, or more regularly if they have bad teeth. Older horses are susceptible to a variety of dental issues which can prevent them from eating. You can find out more about Dental issues in our recent dental health webinar with Dr Martin Dolinschek: fb.watch/9KI9-oiRJi/
