I am giving a 13hd 22 yr old pony mare about a dsp twice a day i put it in her speedybeet and poor over the hot water..she has not trouble eating it as for effectivness this winter her coat is not as long and feels much softer..i will see once the season begins to warm if her coat begins to shed she did last year .. it was longer and courser, but i used a stripping comb and eventually clipperd her to complete the job ...I do not rug my horses
I am pleased with the results of the chaste berry but wonder if the amount could be altered for even better results any thoughts ?

How much are you giving him? I give my 22YO Morgan gelding a slightly heaped tsp. twice a day...he snarfs it right up in his Hi Fat Hi Fibre, beet pulp and flax. He's picky, usually, but never even hesitated with it.

Are you grinding it up? I know someone who tried it on their pony, but fed it unground and the pony refused it. Just use a coffee grinder until it's mostly ground up.

Subject: [EquineCushings] Chaste Tree Berry

My 29 yr old pony/arab/quarter horse was diagnosed w/cushings in 1998!
He is on ciprohepdadine and thyro-L, joint supplements and hoof supplements. I've been reading about chaste tree berry for cushing horses. Tried it but he won't eat it( and this horse eats anything). I read that the chaste tree berry can be helpful...who has tried it and how did you feed it?
Thanks, Mary
