So next month I will be hauling one of my horses to a kids event (special needs rodeo event where the kids get to see different animals and ride the horses). The horse that is going to the event is a total saint and not the problem. My other boy (TJ) who will remain at home is buddy sour when left alone at the barn. TJ is fine out on a ride by himself alone, but if you take his friend then TJ has a melt down and thinks you’ll never bring his friend back(or maybe he’s jealous that he wasn’t chosen???). The last time I had to haul the one horse, I was told that TJ ran and paced the fence for nearly 10 hours until we made it back home.
Aside from Ace, what are calming supplements (paste or pellet) that anyone has had any success with? I am not showing/competing with him so drug testing or performance alteration isn’t an issue. I just want him to not run the fence all day. I’ve heard of Quietex, Perfect Prep, Total calm and focus, “B Kalm.” This is intended for calming ONLY in the pasture/barn, NOT for under saddle work of any kind.
Add* My neighbors have horses so it’s not like TJ is literally left as the only horse. They don’t share a fence line, but you can usually see their horses from our fence unless they are in the very back of the pasture. They will nicker back and forth occasionally with my boys.
