Dear Lisa & Caron,
Just wanted to let you know how pleased we are with the HP Daily. Since, I’ve been using it my horses condition has improved. I’ve noticed a shinier coat,solid hooves, great body condition and a extra sparkle in the eye. I also, like knowing there is a equibiotic included in their daily ration. This keeps my mind at ease because you want their digestive tract to always be balanced.
I’ve been using many of your products for many years now and I can honestly say I have been extremely pleased with all my results.
Thanks for always being there for me and my horses.

Wanted to share with you Steve’s (my husbands) reaction to all this. He was never much convinced from the get go about what I was doing for Bandit and why I was changing his feed and supplements (you know the don’t fix what ain’t broke theory)…..but he FINALLY admitted last night that he sees a significant difference in that horse and how he’s performing. Amazing, huh? I too am amazed but was convinced much early on. Just thought you’d like to know that.

Hello Well, the Brushinator is doing fabulous! I have attached a few photos which are quite remarkable given this pony had days when simply walking was a chore!
His most recent bloodwork has him off thyroid meds (Thyro-L) thanks to your products.

Subject: Ditto’s blood work
Hi Caron…I am forwarding this email to you as a testimonial for EH&P Products including Metaboplex. I think most of the ponies that we show with are now on Metaboplex! I can also tell you that the vet was not really wanting to try the Metaboplex–she just wanted to go with pergulide!
So we did some blood work on Ditto to check in on his pre-cushings situation. He looks great, but we wanted some empirical data. He started at 107 and he’s now at 57 and normal goes to 56!!! And he’s only been on it for 2 months. Our vets think that’s pretty darn amazing.
I have my grand prix horse all the way down to my short stirrup ponies on different products from Blue Ridge and I love sharing the info with others.
Thought you’d like to know…. Thanks for all of your help! …Sheryl

Hi I really appreciate your support and guidance. As I said we were amazed by the results in just a few weeks on the mare we started, and look forward to seeing all three benefit now.
I’ll try and send some before/after pictures at some point.

Our retired showjumper was diagnosed with Cushings at the age of 23. Our veterinarian prescribed Pergolide. We started him on the medication and then I called Caron Haggerty at EH&P. She had worked wonders for our hunter that had COPD, so I was sure she could work her magic for this guy. Sure enough, she reworked his feeding plan and suggested we put him on Metaboplex. We weaned him off the Pergolide and began feeding him the Metaboplex 2 times per day. We started to see results within three weeks. His energy returned, his attitude brightened and his coat, which was dull and lackluster, started to have a bit of shine. The improvement continued, within 2 months his coat was so shiny he looked like it was wet. It was wonderful knowing we were giving him something that was actually good and healthy for him without the side effects of drugs.
Thank you, Christina

Hi, I am sending this email to share with you how happy I am with Metaboplex. I have a small pony that has was put on pergulide by my vet to treat the beginning stages of cushing’s syndrome. After being on pergulide for a few months the pony was lame. We tried everything to identify what was causing the lameness including doing a bone scan and could not figure out what was causing the problem. In the meantime, I encountered you at a horse show and talked to you about the situation. We immediately took the pony off of pergulide and started him on Metaboplex. Within 2 weeks the pony was sound and has not taken a lame step since. He also stopped the cushing’s symptoms that we were treating–the fat pockets went away and his coat was not as rugged. I have told many people about Metaboplex and any of my ponies that show the symptoms of cushing’s are using Metaboplex. I have had nothing but great results!!! …Sheryl Sutherby, Barn Manager Rolling Acres Farm

I contacted Caron Haggerty of EH&P in April of this year for help with the respiratory problems for two of my horses. Both horses had severe respiratory issues and could only tolerate minimal activity. They both coughed continually and each breath could be seen as their sides heaved. Respirations were continually rapid and their nostrils were flared. Our veterinarian diagnosed seasonal allergies and prescribed steroid injections as needed to keep them comfortable. We were anxious to find a solution and avoid the steroid injections and contacted EH&P. Caron advised discontinuing their feed (a well known commercial product) in case they might also have a corn allergy and starting them on Equibiotic and LivImmune along with Rice Bran or Beet Pulp. She cautioned me that it would be a long term process; but that their allergies would improve over a 3 month period. I stayed with the program and also per Caron’s suggestions kept them outside 24/7 in a shelter and watered their hay to minimize dust exposure. I noted slight improvement within the first month. They have steadily improved over the past 3 months until now in August, there are no signs of respiratory problems. The older Quarterhorse mare, age 22, has always had respiratory problems since we purchased her 12 years ago. This is the first time she doesn’t cough after exertion and breathes normally. My 12 year old Morab gelding had never had repiratory problems before last fall and was severely affected. He has made a total turn around and I am able to ride him again and he is back to his normal high energy self. I wish I had taken before and after video to illustrate the dramatic improvement. I am extremely grateful to Caron for helping me address these problems and am so thankful to see my horses running and playing without gasping for breath.

Subject: Re: Bandit
Bandit has been on his HP3 supplements, WinTreats and EH&P Electrolytes since August, and I’ve seen a significant overall improvement in his athleticism as well as his attitude and endurance. I am convinced that he not only is healthier, but much happier since changing his diet. He now competes at a level that I never dreamed possible until now.
His total mileage to date is an impressive 450 competition miles, with several more competitions to compete in the final months of the year. To date in the Southeast Regional Points standings we are in second place in the Featherweight Division.
Thank you to EH&P for giving me the guidance, reassurance and peace of mind needed to care for my horse Bandit and to look forward to competing on him for years to come.

EH&P Products and Caron Haggerty saved my horse’s life! Without her, my horse would never had been able to get off of the steroidal drugs. My mare was doomed to eventually founder from the drugs, and doomed to go down that spiraling hole. Her condition worsened with every attempt to decrease the steroids so back on the steroids she went. After also trying two other natural regimens that didn’t help, fate intervened and I came across a testimonial on the internet for Blueridge Products. That testimonial changed everything, so I hope this testimonial reaches out to someone who is wondering what to do next, like I was. For the first month, I introduced the EH&P Products regimen and gradually decreased the Prednisolone. The condition began to stabilize with less and less steroids. Now, after 90 days and no drugs, (and Caron assured me that my mare would be healthy in 90 days) my mare is healed!!! The first vet tried an antihistamine therapy for 8 months and the second vet tried steroidal therapy for 3 months. Both therapies made her worse and neither truly healed her from the inside out like the EH&P Products therapy did. EH&P Products and Caron worked a miracle before my eyes!!! Thank you EH&P Products & Caron!

Hi Caron,
The farrier came and showed me a big groove in Cody’s hoof wall. Above the groove is the new growth since the diet change. It is flatter against the hoof. Then there is the groove and the rest of the hoof is 1/8 to 1/4″ out from other part. David said that the new hoof is growing back without scar tissue. That’s why it is less protruding than the old (damaged) part. I am going to photograph it because it is so dramatic!

I gave your name to the big Buckeye distributor in Shelbyville, saying that if anyone is having a problem with insulin resistance or other metabolic problem that you have products that are effective.

I’d like to do an article for local small paper that people seem to read as much or more than the Tennessean. I think that there are a lot of people like me who rely on the vet or feed store for choices in diet and remain ignorant of truly effective diets. My horses are so full of vitality and they appear to be so healthy and I know it’s all diet because everything else has remained constant. The article would be about what insulin resistance is and how it affects us here and what we did about it.
Thanks, Louise

Dear Caron,

When I heard you talk about nutrition and food, I thought it was interesting and agreed with the principles. I always believed that “You are what you eat.” But that turned out to be too static a concept. I have replaced it with, “Good nutrition not only sustains but also heals our bodies on a continual basis.”

Poco’s Cody Joe, my 16 year old palomino quarter horse had very few problems until he was about 11 or 12. He developed laminitis and I was advised to use a farrier who did corrective shoeing and to find a way to have him lose weight. I talked to my instructor, other owners and the vet and never could come up with a decision about how to feed him. One horse owner did advise me to forego sweet feed. No one could offer me a definite plan, and I had never imagined there would be an equine nutritionist. I even called a major feed manufacturer but did not believe that I got useful information other than to buy a certain type of their feed.

The big problems started in the fall 2006. He had severe laminitis without rotation of the coffin bone. I kept him off all grass until he was better and through the next spring allowed him to be out a few hours and back in to digest for 3 or 4 hours and then out an hour or two and back in for the night. That routine worked, but he still did not look great. His hoofs were rippled and he did not move with enthusiasm.

The next fall I thought the problem was reoccurring and called the vet. He had a shot of bantamine (sp?) and was kept in. Another vet came to check and basically told me that I was overdoing my worry and to put him out in the pasture. Within hours it took him 20 minutes to walk 100 feet. Then the testing for Cushing’s Disease and the medicine Pergolide began. Even though his test was negative for Cushing’s, I was advised by the vet to continue the medicine because it probably helped with sugar. I had to chase him down and shoot it into his mouth, and he hated it. On the Internet I found that it had been banned by the FDA because it causes heart valve damage in humans, so I discontinued the Pergolide.

My friend Kathy encouraged me to contact you because her horse never had a problem with arthritis again after your recommendations and supplements. For 90 days I have faithfully followed the diet plan you made for all 3 horses. I have fed them the Metaboplex, Oils, and your probiotic supplement. What incredible changes, not only in their bodies but in their spirits and enthusiasm as well.

The farrier was amazed at Cody’s hoofs. There is a distinct groove that marks where the change in feeding began. According to the farrier, the new growth is dense and close to the hoof and strong in contrast to the old scarred growth that is bumpy and ridged and about 1/4″ out from the new growth. (This change did not happen before when I used a well respected formula for hoof health for 9 months.) The horses have changed in body shape to be more sleek and athletic looking. And what I have forgotten to mention is that they LOVE to eat their food!
Finally! I have confidence that I know what I am doing and what I am doing works!

I cannot thank you enough,

Caron,

I just wanted to take this opportunity to THANK YOU!! from the bottom of my heart for this wonderful product, Equigesic XS.
I have a 25 yr old QH mare that came up lame in mid-December 2007. I found you at the Scottsdale All Arabian Show in February 2008, by accident. I was there looking for another vendor I had read about in a magazine. Thank GOD I stumbled upon your booth! You had me take home a 4-lb bag of the Eq XS and I started her on it 2/19/08. She had been on it about 10 days when she decided to trot out to the arena for her turn-out. This mare had not trotted since December! She has now been on it for 6 weeks and she is back to harassing the two ponies and chasing the goats out of the arena. My old girl is BACK!
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!
I just ordered a 12-lb bucket. I’m keeping her on it and I even started my 19 yr old QH gelding about a week ago. My vet had been out for spring shots and confirmed my suspicion. Founder in the right front hoof. He’s feeling better about his hoof already.
I tell every horse person I know about this life-saving product.
Please, keep up the good work!

I am a true believer in your product.

Wow!!! Do I ever love your products. I have a Missouri Fox Trotter, “Smokey” staying at my friend Allison’s ranch. She has been feeding him EH&P Product everyday and does he ever show it. He really looks great. So she introduced me to your company at the Scottsdale show. I spoke with you about my very old guy having Cushings Disease and ordered your product.
Now the REALLY BIG news is about this 42 year old mule, “Muley”. He has been on Metabolease and Peroglide that the Vet has given him for about a year. He looks absolutely horrible! He has a huge dropped down belly, his pooping is off, he is lethargic. His eyes are doing what I call “Snotting up” and draining a lot and his hair is all thick, long, long,dull, matted and brittle. He never did shed off all last summer and was so miserable. I’m in Arizona where it is beyond hot. But now–well! What a change. I started him on your Metaboplex just about a month ago, taking him off everything else. Already he has lost the “snotty eyes”, his belly is up, he has lots of energy now and is back to being his “little pisser” self. He is having no bowel movement issues and is eating much better. And all that long ugly matted hair has almost shed completely off. His coat is soft & shinny again. What a huge turn around in such a quick period of time. I am so happy to have him off the other stuff that is all harmful chemical–not to mention VERY expensive. I’m sending the photo of him good 3 years ago, on the drugs for a year, and now. Pictures tell it all. Thank you so much for giving my “Muley” back. My Vet was just up to see him. He just could not get over just how great Muley looks and how quick the turn around. He had to see what Muley was getting, read everything I had about your products and was stunned at the difference. He even said, “Well, I sure can’t deny the huge difference for the better. He looks absoluelty great!” The Vet is going to stop by reguarly just to monitor the progress just for his own curiousity on this product.
Now your helping me with my dogs and I will report back on that later too. Thanks again for your awesome products. “Muley is back to being a happy, healthy mule again!
Susy Mister–proud and thankful user of your product!

Hi Caron,
Thanks so much for getting back in touch! We gave the HP supplement to our 22 year old pregnant mare and we were amazed by the results in just a few weeks, a big difference in her coat etc., and she is looking great. Now we are putting all three of them on it.
Best, Jenny

Thank God for Caron Haggerty and EH&P! Her condition has been labeled “severe vasculitis”. Possibly a (very) delayed vaccination/worming reaction. We are titering her rather than vaccinating her this Spring and we are doing a fecal rather than worming her at this time. I can’t thank each of you at EH&P enough for your support!!!!!!
