    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helped my OTTB be his mellow self again. My OTTB started acting very out of character (was just "angsty" in the cross ties, under saddle, became difficult to handle if he was stalled for even a day). Since this was unusual behavior for him I started searching for answers and read about Magnesium deficiency symptoms. Ian fit almost all of them, after a few weeks on the Mag5000 I couldn't believe how much it helped him be more like his old self again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great supplement. I have been feeding magnesium to my three horses and they love it. Keeps their heads in the game without slowing them down.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Seems to be working very well for my TB mare who at times seemed to be a bit nervous and tense

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from A little improvement, but not what I expected My young TB gets nervous and tense under saddle. When he's unsure of himself or what I'm asking, his answer is to turn his brain off and get really fast. He isn't a spook. He's a total dream to handle on the ground--responsive, calm, polite, happy. His focus while working just isn't there. I decided to try Mag5000 because it's inexpensive and a lot of people have good luck with it.I noticed a little improvement--he was thinking more while working, but he was still quick to mentally "lose it" and not come back to focusing. He didn't seem as muscle-tense while riding though. The palatability of this product is good--he's not really picky but isn't a vacuum either, and he ate it fine. I would recommend this to others because it's inexpensive and it's a good first option before trying more expensive supplements.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stuff I started using this just over a month ago on my insulin resistant thoroughbred and I've already noticed improvement!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Secret use for Magnesium We originally bought this for an Arabian on our farm. We noticed as the summer progressed that it helped him focus more, but the big jaw dropper was that he had absolutely NO ticks on him. We are in a high tick zone in Maryland and decided to test it on a couple of our other horses to see if this was indeed the cause. Sure enough, every horse we put on the magnesium at the regular recommended dosing had no more ticks. I went from getting 20-30 ticks per day off of my mare to maybe one or two all summer. Best use for this product yet!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Magnesium great product! a bit more expensive than it should be. Many horse need the supplementation to help develop their muscles.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Working I have a red chestnut mare with the stereotypical behaviors of a red chestnut mare. We have tried SmartCalm, Moody Mare, etc. Nothing really seemed to settle her down enough to focus. The Magnesium seems to be working, she is quieter, less anxious and easier to focus. I'm going to keep her on it and see how it goes.
