Elizabeth has owned Knightoncombe Grizzled Skipper (Skippy) since 1984, and the lovely lad is now 34 years of age. Skippy had a successful in-hand showing career, in 1986 taking 2nd at Royal Windsor Horse Show. In September 2012 Skippy unfortunately was very worrying, and the vets comments were not good; “after our time with Skippy, spanning some 29 years and the pleasure he had brought us, the choice (to put lots of effort into helping Skippy recover) was obvious.
“The vet had suggested a routine, keeping him in his stable or corral, on hay and gently giving him very short walks three times a day, with the walks getting longer as time went by. A friend with whom I work, suggested I give Skippy Laminitis Prone Supplement, and kindly gave me half a tub to try. I spoke to your helpline, who recommended we continue with the Laminitis Prone (we are now on our third tub). Though we are still very careful to monitor his grazing, Skippy is now feeling good, trotting and cantering about his field. I would like to thank Global Herbs for LPS, which has helped us so much”.
