VCBH: Commercial Moment

What are you buying next?  Not your "Wish I Could" list, but your actual, practical pony shopping list.  And if it's a high ticket item you are saving for, what is it and when do you expect to order or get it?


Okay, so he'll get supplements in about two weeks.  I'll also order some more Pyranha fly spray, because it's cheap and after I doused him in it the night before last, he had a few moments of relief.  Also, we used it to kill a wasp in TE's trailer.  If it had been a bee, I would have tried to escort it out.  But wasps are evil.  WASPs.  Heh.

I'm also going to look into getting a couple tubes of SmartShip & Show Paste to test.  Archie's delicate intestinal system just can't handle the rigors of being a working/showing/schooling pony.  He nervous shits everywhere.  He has always been like this and he's on regular pro- and pre-biotics. It's just the way he is.  But.. hopefully something like this will just give an extra oompf to his system.

Really, I was looking for something comparable to the BCAAs (branch-chain amino acids) that I drink when I lift.  It keeps me from feeling fatigued and assists with the muscle soreness later.  I want pony to feel good.  (Side note:  straight up BCAAs from SmartPak are $106 a month.)

Annnnd, ironically, I just got an email from Purina about their new product, SuperSport.  I mentioned a while ago that I was thinking of adding alfalfa pellets to his diet.  This looks like a better option, as it has the amino acids I wanted and is a minimum of 40% protein.  And roughly $0.80/day.  If I can find it locally, I'll be all over that.  And I'll review it.  Sorry, BM, more shit to do.

Next weekend, I'll probably head out to Tractor Supply and get more Cocosoya Oil and SandClear.  And I want to start stocking up on beer, but I'll probably get that at Wal-Mart.

Exciting stuff.

    1. Wait. You can't buy beer at Wal-Mart? It's shit beer, but he likes it.

  4. Look into the Acid FX, that helps with nervs and belly issues before riding and trailering...also -try to find something similar that is not Purina if you can - you do not want to feed Purina unless you absolutely have to...
