Dear Heath / No Thrush,
I am looking forward to receiving my Release [Muscle Wash]. I have had such incredible results with No Thrush that I am pretty certain that I will see great results with Release as well.
My gelding could have been the poster horse for No Thrush. When I purchased him in April of 2011 I had no idea that I was also buying the worst case of thrush I had encountered in almost 40 years of horse ownership. He also had the worst case of thrush that two farriers AND two vets had seen in their entire careers. The thrush had eaten his frog and was working hard on destroying his digital cushion in all four hooves. All of the experts agreed that my gelding would never be sound and that the best thing to do was euthanize him.
I was not willing to give up.
We had big plans for that horse!
I tried almost every thrush product on the market and many homemade remedies that are not on the market. I battled that thrush for SEVEN long months. There would be slight improvement, then he would be back to being lame. Picking his hooves became dangerous because his hooves were so sore. I learned that he was Insulin Resistant and that IR horses are prone to thrush. I changed his diet but the thrush continued. I was losing hope.
Then one day I saw another boarder poofing some stuff on her gelding’s hooves. I asked her what it was and she told me it was this great stuff called “No Thrush.” I had seen the stuff somewhere online and had considered trying it, but didn’t because I had already spent HUNDREDS of dollars on other thrush remedies that did not work. She told me that if I ordered No Thrush and if I did not like it, she would buy whatever I had left in the bottle for what I paid for the full bottle. She would even reimburse me for shipping. I felt like I could not lose, so I ordered a bottle that night.
I received my first bottle of No Thrush and really put it to the test the very first day. It was pouring down rain and my gelding was standing fetlock deep in yucky mud. I poofed his hooves like the video showed and left convinced that I had just wasted my time and money.
The next day I thought differently. I picked his hooves and immediately noticed that his hooves did not smell foul. He did not seem so tender when I scraped the mud out of his hooves. Intrigued, I re-poofed his hooves that day. And the next day. And for the next couple of months. His frogs grew back. His lameness went away.
Excited, I booted him with Renegade hoof boots and started riding him. I started training him. I started competing him. I did several endurance rides and also some competitive trail rides. I did parades and obstacle competitions. I trail rode him thousands of miles over the next couple of years in seventeen different states. He won his very first ECTRA competitive trail ride! He became the Number Six NATRC (Novice Division) horse east of the Mississippi River! He became the Number Ten ACTHA (Pleasure Division) horse in the whole state of Alabama!
And he did it without a single lame step.
Unfortunately, my gelding’s story stopped last summer. About four months ago he had a bizarre colic episode and had to be euthanized.
About a month after his death I acquired a little rescue mare. I did not know that she had a locked up sacrum when I got her. The chiropractors have done what she can and she is sound, but the little mare still has muscle spasms in her lower back and hip area. They say there is nothing they can do for the spasms. They say that the mare will likely be a pasture ornament for the rest of her life. They say that she will always have the spasms.
Maybe she will.
Maybe she won’t.
I am going to see if Release can make a difference. And if it does, you will be the first to know! And if it doesn’t, then I can honestly say that I have tried everything worth trying.
Thank you for reading. And thank you for giving my gelding a couple of good years of life.
As promised, here is KOA’s before/during/after compilation.
Important things to Know:
* The daily application process takes no more than 1 minute per day. Besides a brief dabbing away of bedding and drainage in the early stages, DUST ON use requires no washing, no pulling scabs, and no wrapping in most cases. With a barn full of over 50 horses, we can honestly guarantee that you have never used a product that takes less work on your part, and produces the least amount of stress on your horse.
* DUST ON is all-natural. No chemicals.
* DUST ON! allows the body to heal naturally, meaning that it allows proper amounts of granulation tissue to cover the entire wound, then creating a healthy and BREATHABLE scab.
NOTE: A few weeks into use on a wound like KOA’S the scab will become big and chunky. This is what we want! You will be tempted to mess with it. Please don’t. For DUST ON to work as designed, the scab must stay in place. Don’t fret, you are not drying out the wound. The healing happens underneath the scab. In fact, removing the scab means that you now must start all over again, extending healing time, adding to your horse’s discomfort, and making scarring more likely.
* DUST ON! controls bacteria without being caustic, (This means that it does not damage live tissue, which also means scarring is far less likely.)
* DUST ON works extremely well on proud flesh. In fact, stay tuned on this FB page. Our next videologue series will be on proud flesh. We are currently documenting a significant case right now. It has been amazing to see the difference DUST ON has made in just 3 days.
LAST NOTE: I must reemphasize one point above. Take a look on this FB page and watch the KOA DAY 1,2, and 3 Videos. (1 minute each). It is important that when using DUST ON that you follow the usage demonstrated in those videos. Why, you ask? Well, many of DUST ON’s biggest fans and even some of our best friends decide that they should tinker. (They feel a little guilty that they’ve only spent 1 minute a day on that wound) Here are a few things we’d ask them NOT to do…… Perhaps they decide that the scab should be softened so they add creams and ointments. Maybe they decide that the scab should be removed altogether so they wash and soak and pick and pluck; or they decide they should wrap day after day after day. All of this tinkering will significantly slow the process, or much worse. (For example: proud flesh, infection, scarring, etc) The product slogan should be “Just Dust On – and Keep It Simple!”
Just trust the powder. Or as author, Craig Alanson, likes to say,
“Trust the Awesomeness.”
The powder will do its job.
Final Thought: Equine healing has evolved over millions of years. In the wild; an open wound drains, granulation tissue grows over the wound, the wound scabs over, and the wound heals by stitching itself together from the edges inward. No creams, sprays, or ointments are needed for this healing. DUST ON re-enforces and speeds up this natural process, it does not try to reimagine natures design.
Yes, if you or your horses have any kind of muscle stress, tendinitis, arthritis, or other soft tissue issue, you have surely spent a LOT of money on liniments while searching for relief. Of course you have tried all the menthol rubs (99% of all liniments in the store carry menthol as their “active” ingredient.) These work a bit….sort of….Maybe? Honestly, not really. Basically as soon as the sensation of heat goes away, so does the sensation of relief. Your senses of smell and touch can no longer be tricked.
Natural Release Muscle Spray/Gel has no menthol, no alcohol. It creates no heat, and there is nearly zero smell. (It can be used under saddle, wraps, and clothing)
WHAT’S IN IT AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
The all-natural water-based ingredients are:
Dead Sea Transdermal Magnesium
Everybody knows that magnesium releases muscle and soft tissue. This is why we take magnesium supplements to help prevent and stop leg cramps and body stress. The form of magnesium in Natural Release is truly transdermal. This means it penetrates the skin, getting down into the deep tissue, going to work in minutes. This form of Mg is also a carrier. So it carries the arnica and eucalyptus inside with it. These ingredients helps reduce inflammation and pain associated with stressed muscle and tendons, arthritis, tendonitis, etc.
Natural Release is labeled for animals, but people are finding it incredibly helpful for their personal use. Sore backs, thrown-out neck, knees, plantar fasciitis, and pretty much any soft tissue stress.
Massage therapists use it in their practice to release soft tissue before they go to work, making the massage easier to perform – and more importantly, less painful for the client.
Speaking of “use before,” Natural Release is not only intended to be used as a muscle release after a hard workout, but even more importantly to be used “Before” you ride?
Does your horse have a tweaked hock or stifle?
Do you have to do a 30 minute warm up to loosen him up before you can start working with him in the ring?
Does he balk when you are tacking up because his topline or sacrum is locked.
Is his stride short and choppy.
Does he fight the bridle because his poll or TMJ is clenched and ridged?
