Underweight & Neglected Horse With Terrible Skin & Coat Is Transformed


After Blue Chip

When Emma Moulding from Wisbech in Cambridgeshire was looking for her first horse, “a large sensible cob to plod around the village with”, she saw an advertisement for Emily and bought her despite obvious neglect, just knowing she had found the horse she always wanted. Turning immediately to Blue Chip for help with her Emily’s diet, Emma tells the heart-warming story in her own words ….

Before Blue Chip

“Emily looked underweight in the advert, but when I went to see her, nothing could have prepared me for how shocking her condition really was. She had been bought from a meat market and then under fed by the dealer who was selling her. She turned out to be an Ardennes horse and should have weighed 600-700kg, but when I weighed her a week after getting her home, she was 524kg.

.

“Her teeth, feed, skin and coat were in terrible condition; the man I bought her from had hunter clipped her due to her having lice, she was covered in old scars and her main and tail were a mess, as she has sweet itch.

.

“Her temperament is amazing though and after everything she’s been through, she still loves people. That made me believe she was the horse for me….

.

“After I got her home in March, I started her on her new routine; she is turned out each day and stabled at night, gets as much hay as she can eat and two hard feeds a day, including Blue Chip Original. Her progress has been amazing, both inside and out. Her summer coat has come through smashing and with help from various ‘lotions and potions’ her sweet itch has calmed down and her mane and tail are growing out nicely.

.

“The real shocker was her feet – you can actually see how far the good growth has travelled down the hoof and is already at the heels. She’s had a few lameness problems that turned out to be bony growths on her pedal bone and uneven bone growth in her lower legs, so as recommended, I started to feed her Blue Chip Dynamic in addition to Original and along with corrective trimming and shoeing, she is now as sound as a pound!

.

“Emily is a wonderful horse with a cracking character and I would like to thank Blue Chip for creating such brilliant products, without which I would have struggled to get her back to her full potential. I am very proud of her – thank you so much Blue Chip!”
