    Chill by Omega Alpha - works freaking awesome and won’t harm anything.

    That's awful, SLC. I'm so sorry you had to go through that. Sounds like watching someone go through dementia is horrible, whether it's a person or a horse. :(

    I would have to look up the symptoms of Lyme Disease. I live in southwest Michigan and I know it is coming to this part of the country now. I kinda doubt that's what it is, though, because he's been a worrywart for years. My instructor/trainer told me once that "he's an anxious guy who needs a lot of reassurance."

    Where do you get Vision, and what form (powder, pellet, etc.) is it? Not sure if he'd eat it... Of course he's a picky eater.

    Where can I get it?

    I have a mare who tested for chronic lyme who had some very weird anxiety quirks that went away when I treated her with minocycline. There's usually other symptoms but sometimes chronic lyme causes odd behaviors.

    You can get Vision on Smartpak Vision™

    @RebeccaMI i am in Canada, but I’m sure you’ll find distributors listed of the omega alpha website.

    April has also gotten much quieter / mellow and non spooky since her Lyme's treatment.

    Magnesium supplements can help a lot with nerves. I am feeding Quiessence to one of mine and he's definitely more chill now that he's on it.

    Of all the weird things, magnesium helped my spookball of a mare. At least, I think it was magnesium, because it's the only thing that changed in her diet. It didn't get rid of all the anxiety, but it made a noticeable difference. I give it to both my horses and it works fantastically.
