Ann Jones – Rescue horse – Lame - horrible feet – now running and playing

John Dowdy:

Hello and welcome to this week's Equinety podcast. We're swinging out into Texas. We've got Ann Jones on the call this week. Ann, welcome to the Equinety podcast.

Ann Jones:

Hello. I'm glad to be joining you and explain my story to you today.

John Dowdy:

Well, we sure appreciate you taking the time. As always, we love having guests on. It's one of the reasons why we started the podcast was to share these stories and get them out and maybe give some other folks out there some hope if they're dealing with similar situations. And I know on this podcast, we're going to be talking about a rescue horse that you've had for quite a while, but just started declining over the years, over the last several years. But before we get into that, let's talk a little bit about your background and what you do in the show world.

Ann Jones:

Okay. Well, I started showing quarter horses, I think, in '95 and I did all around events and eventually kind of narrowed it down to trail and Western riding. I'm just a big animal lover. I found this horse and decided I could rescue him and maybe take him... He's got a wonderful bloodline and I wanted to show him in maybe Western Pleasure. That would be something new for me, but it turned out that he had been stranded from a hurricane in Mississippi and he was going to be taken to the slaughter. I found him and took him home and decided to rehab him. He was in pretty bad shape then, but it didn't take long. He gained some weight back and I started bridling and he just wasn't going to make a show horse because I guess, trauma that he had been through. So we just kind of put him in the pasture and let him be happy for a little while.

John Dowdy:

How many years ago was this?

Ann Jones:

This was, let's see he's almost 17. I got him when he was four. So I've had him for 13 years.

John Dowdy:

Got you. So when you got him, he was in pretty bad shape. So you kind of-

Ann Jones:

Yeah, he was skinny and they had cut his tail off. He had like fungus and his feet, of course, were terrible, but we doctored him up and he was beautiful. He still is beautiful, but his feet just never did recover from all that trauma. In the last couple of years, it's just been getting really worse. So bad that we were afraid we were actually going to have to put him down. Because if you would watch him walk, he could barely walk. It would take him five minutes to get just six feet in the pasture. It was that bad. And I tried different supplements from several different companies, different ingredients and it just wasn't working. So I saw this advertisement and I thought, well, I was reading some of the stories I thought, it can't hurt. So let me try this. And I'm telling you, the results are amazing.

John Dowdy:

How quickly did you begin... Now, we're talking specifically about the Equinety Horse XL.

Ann Jones:

The Equinety. Yes.

John Dowdy:

So how quickly did you begin to see changes?

Ann Jones:

I could actually tell a difference in three days.

John Dowdy:

Wow. What did you see?

Ann Jones:

Well, he was moving faster. It didn't look like he was in pain, in literally three days. And then in seven days, it was even that much more different. And in 15 days you could barely tell that he even had a limp, but then the most incredible thing. After he had been on it for a month, he's walking straight up to his feet, not limping at all. But then I was out feeding one day, it was a cool day. All the animals were excited and the horses next to him started running and he took off running and bucking for like five minutes. He has not done that in years. I was almost in tears. We just stood there and watched. It was beautiful. And that was in 30 days.

John Dowdy:

That is incredible. And how's his... You had mentioned that his hooves were just on the decline the last little bit, after every trim, it was just getting worse and worse.

Ann Jones:

Yeah. Sometimes they tend to be a little sore after the trims, but this last couple of times he would be trimmed, that's when it started just getting worse and I had the vet look at him and she was like, "Well, maybe the farrier's not doing a real good job." But I trust the farrier, he's great. And so they did, his hooves have never been a real good condition. They crack and split easily. So this has made it certainly better.

John Dowdy:

Yeah. For those of you tuning in for the first time, maybe this is the first time you're really digging into what this product is. And one question you might have is, how does it work in so many ways? If you look at all of our podcasts, there's everything from one extreme to another in performance horses, rescue horses and hoof quality and coat quality and on and on and on.

            The Equinety Horse XL is 100% pure amino acids. There's no fillers, no sugars, no starches. And there's no loading dose. And what the amino acids are specifically designed to do is give the body what it needs to release its own hormones. And then the body is able to send its own hormones to the problem areas. So we have a lot of feedback and testimonials with mystery lameness type issues, where the vets and farriers and everybody's, they've tried everything that they know, and they still can't figure out what might be going on. The neat thing with this is because it's working at the cellular level and the body's determining where to send its own hormones. And that's why it can help in so many scenarios.

            And specifically when it comes to the hoof quality, we've just seen this over and over and over, especially with hooves and thin soles, we've seen a lot of changes just in 30 days. And just as you were describing, what you saw in three days. That's the other thing is this product starts working in 24 hours. And so now it's just a matter of how quickly you can begin noticing the changes.I would say the vast majority of people, and I'm talking upper 90 percentile, do see changes in 30 days or less. And there are those situations where it does take longer, but for the most part, 30 days or less people are noticing changes, it could be softer, shinier coat, filling out. In this case, holy cow, from barely being able to walk around to out running and bucking and playing like nothing's going on. I think he's ready to show now.

Ann Jones:

Yeah. He might be. I'm not sure I'm ready to tackle training him again.

John Dowdy:

Yeah, yeah. Oh, man.

Ann Jones:

I'm a little older than I was when I first got him.

John Dowdy:

Yeah. What's your farrier's comments been on the hoof quality?

Ann Jones:

He actually hasn't been back to see him since... He trimmed him right before I started this. So he's due just anytime. So, yeah. I'm excited for him to see the difference.

John Dowdy:

He's going to be stunned.

Ann Jones:

Yeah. He will be. And the vet, the vet hasn't seen him yet either. So she's going to be really surprised.

John Dowdy:

Wow.

Ann Jones:

And I've had several vets look at him, and no one could give me any answer and no one could... They would just say, "Try conduit and glucosamine and just try this and that." No one could help me. And I was reading about this product and thinking, oh, that sounds too good to be true, but it really is true.

John Dowdy:

Yeah. We hear that a lot. We've converted a lot of the skeptics, the super skeptics.

Ann Jones:

Yeah.

John Dowdy:

No. It makes sense from a science standpoint. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. Some of the questions that we get often are maybe people are using certain medications or other supplements, and so one of the common questions are, "Should I stop using this other stuff before using the Equinety product?" And our answer is always, "Don't change a thing you're using, just add this to it. And that way you know it's the only element you've changed. And then over the next couple of weeks to 30 days where the majority of people do start noticing positive changes, you know your horse better than anyone, so then you can determine whether to reduce or stop using some of the other things."

            And I know before we got on the podcast, we were talking about one of your show horses and how that show horse is regularly injected. I know one of the feedbacks that we get a lot from injected horses, from their owners, when they start using this product, their feedback to us is, is they don't have to inject as often and sometimes not at all. It all depends on the horse and the severity of what's going on in there. But the good news is, is there's not any negative side effects to any medications or other supplements. And that's why you can just add this to it and then see how it changes your horse for the good. So pretty remarkable.

Ann Jones:

Yeah, it is. So does it affect their attitude? Can it make them, because my other show horse he's kind of grumpy. It could be because he's in pain I guess. So maybe this can help the attitude.

John Dowdy:

That's a great question. We've had, I would say, well, going on the market for about seven years now, we've had a lot of people say they've had and seen complete demeanor changes in as little as three days with their horses.

Ann Jones:

Oh, wow.

John Dowdy:

Yeah. And again, it's because it starts working in 24 hours. So, we've been to different events and barrel racing and things like that. And after two or three days, people are like, "Okay, I don't know what this stuff is, but the horse I have right now is not the one I brought down." So it's very common. Does it work every single time that quickly? Well, we got to say no, but the odds are so high that it's going to work and work quickly, and we just hear it all the time. But you're right, a lot of that could be because of some pain going on somewhere and this can help alleviate some of that pain. And so just like when-

Ann Jones:

And I think I heard it on one of your other podcasts, someone talking about adding it like an extra dose when they go to show.

John Dowdy:

Yes. Another great question.

Ann Jones:

I think I'm going to start doing that.

John Dowdy:

Absolutely. So the science behind that is when, for example, you give a scoop in the morning and that's giving the body what it needs to release those hormones for repair. Well, the hormones have a 23 and a half hour life cycle. So by the time you give a scoop the following morning, the hormone levels are back to where they would normally be for that age of a horse. So we have a lot of people that are in the performance world that they'll give a scoop in the morning and a scoop in the evening. And so what that's doing is keeping the hormone levels elevated. So it just helps promote faster recovery.

Ann Jones:

Yeah. That sounds wonderful.

John Dowdy:

Yep. And it's something that you can test with for a couple of weeks or 30 days and see how it works or back it off. So it's very customizable. But a lot of the people that are out there, running really hard, they swear by the two scoops. And of course other people that swear, "Oh, they have to be rounded versus flat." I'm like, Oh, there's some crazy horse people.

Ann Jones:

Oh yeah. We can get crazy.

John Dowdy:

So, awesome. Well, Ann, I really appreciate you taking the time. Is there anything else that you'd like to share with anybody about the product? I guess, let me ask you this. I think you kind of mentioned this. Because as you were dealing with the horse and you tried all these other products, so you went on to search and of course you found us on Facebook, which we do a lot of advertising on Facebook, were you a somewhat skeptical when you first saw the thing. What was your first or initial reaction?

Ann Jones:

When I saw it on Facebook?

John Dowdy:

Yes.

Ann Jones:

Oh yeah. Because like I said, it sounded too good to be true. And I've been burned a little from finding stuff straight from Facebook. So I just decided I went straight to your website and learned more about the history and the background and the actual science behind it, and felt very confident about ordering from you and got the product quickly and all the stuff that people are saying is true.

            So if anyone has any kind of issue, I just recommend, just try it for 30 days. Got nothing to lose because it's not, like you're saying, it doesn't interfere with medication or it's natural healing. And I would suggest it for anyone having an issue with a horse.

John Dowdy:

Yeah, absolutely. And right on our website, under the Equinety Horse XL section, there's three little videos, but one of them specifically is how amino acids work, and that's a very informative video. It's kind of animated. For those of you wanting some more information on that, but it shows exactly how amino acids work in the body. So it's very, very educational on that. Well, awesome. Ann Jones out of Texas, thank you so much for taking the time to share your story here on the Equinety podcast.

Ann Jones:

You're welcome. I'm glad to do it. And I hope it helps someone.

John Dowdy:

Absolutely. Thank you. Bye bye.

Ann Jones:

Bye.
