Rising Star of Whole Food
Jim and Rhett won the Grand Prix at International Horse Sport Champions CDI *** in Loxahatchee Florida in March 2011, and finished second that weekend in the Grand Prix Special. The pair also won the finale of the Dressage Under the Stars freestyle competition in March 2011, riding to music from the Batman movies.
Featured Horse: Rhett
"Rhett is an 11 year old gelding that is half holsteiner / half dutch harness horse. He is 17.2 hands of fire breathing dragon. He was bred in Kentucky by Shirley McQuillan. She owns him."
Rhett's Whole Food Story
"Rhett is so susceptible to Florida skin problems: fungus, scratches, rashes, hives, and he gets so depressed. When his immune system is this reactive it really affects his performance. I've tried every topical out there but I wasn't addressing his immune issues systemically.
"When I put him on Colostrum-38, his skin got better, he felt better physically. I got a positive energy boost that I can use in the ring. He is so ulcer prone and the colostrum helps his gut, and helps to keep him feeling good. Our horses are exposed to all kinds of bacteria, viruses when they compete, and the colostrum helps his immune system so that his body can better resist the viruses and bacteria. Colostrum is an essential part of Rhett's program."
Getting More Out of Colostrum & Whole Food
"At the first CDI he had broken out in scratches and his skin was irritated all over. He just didn't feel up to par. We finished sixth in that CDI, our first, but Rhett wasn't himself. Then I got him on your Colostrum-38, and he started feeling better really quickly. By the time of the second CDI, three weeks later, everything had cleared up, his coat looked beautiful, and I was able to deliver a better performance (placing fifth in the Grand Prix, and fourth in the Grand Prix Freestyle)."
When the scratches returned, they weren't nearly as bad as they have been in the past. I just upped the colostrum, and added coconut oil (on the scratches and in his feed) and that combination really worked. There was a huge difference in 12 hours.
