Sometimes you may feel like your child is acting a little bit like a monkey, but in reality there are some true similarities between animals and people that you might not have ever thought about.
More and more people are being diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactive disorder and other related conditions all of the time. Not only that, but with the proper prescriptions they are benefiting from a greater focus and sense of self-control.
Now think about the hyperactive filly that you have out in your barn and maybe you're wondering if she wouldn't be a little better off with some horse calming supplements to help her find her focus as well. The truth is that with a little bit of help she could be a brand new horse, just like with a little Ritalin your child seems like a new student at school.
Just like many of us discover that we have positive results when we take supplements to strengthen our bones and joints or to decrease muscle tension, horses also are able to reap these positive benefits.
We all know that when our knees or ankles are bothering us it has a huge effect on our life style. Physical activities become near impossible, and in some cases should be avoided in order to reduce the likelihood of causing further damage. Even relaxing activities like watching television or sleeping are harder to enjoy when you have a throbbing knee that's impossible to ignore.
We usually don't continue to force ourselves to do hard labor or strenuous athletic activities when we are suffering from these kinds of conditions so it doesn't seem fair to expect the usual performance out of our horses when they are in the same situations.
Just like children who suffer from ADHD don't necessarily know how to fix the problem when they are bouncing off the walls in the confinement of classrooms at school, your horse has no way of fixing its many ailments on its own.
You can do your horses a huge favor by giving them the supplements they need to help them feel healthy and strong. Animals suffer from many of the same ailments that we do and live in harsher conditions.
After all, the softest hay in a stall can't compare to the comfort of even the lumpiest bed. Think about how you would feel after spending night after night sleeping on the ground. It's no wonder your horse is feeling a little bit stiff in the joints.
