I've had Abby on Chia for 2 weeks now. Haven't noticed a change as yet in her coat, except for the fact that she's doing a wooly mammoth impersonation!
I'm hoping it will reduce the clicking in her hind legs. Will keep you posted. I have before pics but will give it another couple of weeks before I take any after pics.
Oh, and Arnie, I have changed nothing else in her feed so I'll be sure to let you know ;)

chai

Hi Equinechia found out why the chai wasn't working it was helping too fight a virse in my 2 old horses the vet said it was good I had them on it. The other 3 got no signs of the virse. We have had them on it for 3 months now and the husband said the hoofs have changed for the better and the flat footed TB is bare foot for the first time in 8 years. So now I'm try too talk my boss in to putting our foals on it. Just about to stock up again as the dogs are on it now too. thanks Equinechai

Can you tell me how it aids in sand elimination, I live on horrid black sand and have had a real problem with sand colic, I feed pumpkin once a week and psyllium for 3 days once a mnth, but with the added benefits of the chia Iam seriously thinking of buying some.

Chia is hydrophilic (water absorbing); the gelatinous property of the seeds (upon getting wet in the gut) clears sand more effectively than expensive psyllium products. It has the capacity to absorb large amounts of liquid, increasing the volume passing through the digestive tract, stimulating the intestinal transit. This important feature clears sand and debris out of the horse's gut naturally, assists with regulating stool movement, helps prevent sand colic and diverticulitis.

I was under the impression you needed to feed the psyllium for a bit longer then 3 days for it to be effective?

I was told by my vet to do it every 6 weeks
Start of 1/4 scoop and up it each day til you get to 1 cup.. which you feed for 3 days.. then decrease it the same way.. so you're feeding it for 7 days? :)

I have had my girls on it for a couple of weeks - the change is awesome! I think I'd like to order a bigger packet now with you guys :D (will check website) Can you guys send over the 25kgs to Perth?

Both coats are lovely and soft, both girls are happy and healthy. I'll find some photos! They haven't had it for a few days as I haven't been able to get to the shops (just bought some this morning), but I'm really pleased with this product!! :)

Hey all, thought I give some photos of my horse who has been put on this product of the last few months. He's been on the same feeds (grain/roughage ratio changed with work level) but his work has increased (gradually) in that time. I'll show the photos and you guys can tell me if you think he's changed and how ;) .

21st of January - before feeding equine chia and in paddock condition


12th of March - about 6 weeks of feeding equine chia


16th of April - just under 3 months of feeding it


7th of May (last weekend) - fitter and with his winter coat


ps. I haven't used the "prettiest" photos but more those that show his condition and coat.

I don't have any before pics but here is one from this morning. Had a blanket clip done three weeks ago, a TB, paddocked not stabled at all, one winter rug atm and is in light work..

love equine chia, hoping to feed it forever. Oh did I mention he is only being fed lupins and chia (apart from chaff and hay) but that is it!!

Hi!!

Just wondering if Chia could possibly benefit a pony in the early stages of chronic renal failure?
No studies have been done on this sorry, but in saying that it could help him build up his immune system which in turn 'could' help with the renal failure. I wish you all the very best and sorry for the delay in responding to your question.

Here are the photos of Abby before and after Chia.
She started getting it on 22nd April - 2 scoops per day, no other change to her (very basic, uninteresting) feed.

22nd April - prior to feeding.


8th May - prior to clipping!


21st May - after clipping.


1st June (I think?!)


And because I know it's hard to compare as she was not clipped and then clipped, here's Abby just after being clipped last year.
