“My friend and I picked up two free horses in February 2017. We knew one of the horses had Big Head, but when they got off the truck and we saw my mare BO and we thought it was a tumour. She had a huge and hard as rock lump on the side of her jaw. My friend kept her daughter and I bought BO home, called my vet and they diagnosed her with a severe case of Big Head. Not only did she have the lump but she was also lame, this was so hard to watch and made me so upset. She couldn’t do what a horse was supposed to do. She was always uncomfortable and in pain, you could see she wanted to move but knew she couldn’t, I think that was the hardest part.
“After lots of research, the products we found on the market didn’t seem adequate until I saw a video from EquiFeast Australia about BREAK FREE. Seeing and hearing someone describe all the symptoms of her horse and everything she was saying was exactly BO’s symptoms. That’s proved enough for me, I had to try it.
“I started BO on BREAK FREE on the 7th March and measured the lump on her jaw as 10 ½ inches long and 8 ½ inches wide.
“I was told the loading period was three months and I wasn’t expecting miracles until my neighbour noticed that it was going down. I thought it was wishful thinking as she hasn’t been on it that long.
“Curiously I came home and measured it as we were at the end of April by this point. It measured 10 inches long and 8 inches wide! I was so shocked for her sake, I couldn’t believe it!
“By June, there were big changes in BO, she was trotting around, albeit a little sore. I measured again, this time 8 ½ inches long and 7 ½ inches wide!
“On July 22nd, I measured again ….. 7 ½ inches long and 7 ½ inches wide! Still more progress! BO had turned into a young horse again. She’s is much happier in herself, rearing, bucking and swimming ….. She is one happy girl now!
“Our most recent measurements were in September, 6 ½ inches long and 7 inches wide!
“BO has been on the highest dose of BREAK FREE due to the severity of her condition, totalling two cups per day for five days on and two days off. It’s still going down and I’m not stopping until it tells me it’s reached the best it can. I am not expecting BO to have a normal jaw and she will always have a lump there. But I never expected the results I have seen in her in such a short space of time, it has reduced by 4.5 inches in length and 1.5 inches in width. I will just have to wait and see what happens next!
“I cannot thank Trevor at EquiFeast Australia enough, he has been so helpful and is always at the end of the phone to answer any questions I have.
“This product truly is a life changer for horses with Big Head and the associated issues such as lameness. It has changed my horse from being sore, in pain and with a large lump on the size of her jaw that was so bad she couldn’t wear a halter, to where she is today! It is truly remarkable.
“You may think this it’s expensive but when you break it down and it’s less than $100 a month, and it really truly works! It has turned my horse in to a happy and content horse rather than always uncomfortable and in pain. She is now a spirited, fun loving and affectionate horse who shows she’s happy to be alive again. For me this is truly priceless.
“BO’s full name is Rainbow and I certainly found my pot of gold with this product and I wouldn’t be without BREAK FREE!”
Shelbie and BO are now able to enjoy some ridden work together
