Finley came to us at 2 years old and has kept us on our toes ever since, a beautiful chestnut gelding (who is certain he is a chestnut mare) with mountains of attitude and a whole load of 'sass'! Unfortunately Finley took an early retirement after issues causing intermittent lameness - This is where our true issues started, I can cope with a horse with 'sass' and 'attitude' and everything in between but what I cannot bare is a horse that is NOT HAPPY! Finley retired at the beginning of winter 2018 due to very wet ground conditions, Scottish weather and Finley's tendencies to plough fields it was not a viable option for him or us to have him on 24/7 turn out in the fields so he was stabled at night along with our other horses and through the occasional day when we had storms etc. He would rear up in his stable, paw the ground continuously and throw his head back in frustration which resulted in torn muscles! - He was miserable, which made us miserable. We decided to dedicate an arena to Finley to allow him to be off the wet grass at night but still able to roam and have shelter. He thanked us by digging a 3ft deep hole, through the sand, through the membrane and into the hardcore leaving out arena filled with rocks! Thanks Fin. "he has a track record of killing small animals for sport (sheep, turkeys, chickens, goats .... tried with the dog but only managed to break her jaw and de-glove her back leg)" So after 3 moths of owning the most miserable horse my options where limited - Finley couldn't live like this, it was border line cruel and I was out of ideas to help him. Re - homing Finley would not be an option, he has a track record of killing small animals for sport (sheep, turkeys, chickens, goats .... tried with the dog but only managed to break her jaw and de-glove her back leg) He is also unsuitable to be turned out with other horses so what I have is a lame horse that kills animals for sport and thinks hes a chestnut mare! So as a last resort before having to make some pretty tough decisions I turned to Nettex Calmer - I can not rate this any more highly than I do. This calmer saved my horses life. A week after starting the calmer I began to notice changes in his behaviour, the rearing was the first behaviour difference - completely stopped The only issues we still have are the occasional dig at the ground at dinner time. The look in his eyes is priceless, he is a content horse and it is completely down to the calmer.

I've started feeding Nettex Calmer Maintenance Powder to my ex racehorse, he can be extremely spooky and nervous when out riding and is quiet a stresser. Since feeding this he is much better to ride out, more relaxed and seems to think before over reacting to nervy situations. I'm really happy with the results and it's affordable!
