Re: [RC] Calm & Cool - Heidi Smith

I agree with your statement below Heidi, I would however just like to add
that things are not always "black and white" I was told by my equine
hospital after they did tests that my gelding is scatty because he has a
thiamin deficiency. I put him on a supplement and he is a much calmer
so much so that people have asked if I have him on a calming supplement.

Sounds like a success story!  :-)

Still, a deficiency of a nutrient causing an irritability isn't quite in the
same ballpark as giving a calming agent to a horse in robust good health.
(It does, however, bring up the point of making sure the horse really IS in
optimum health, and not just assuming that its hypersensitivity is due to
bad manners...)
