Quiessence Pelletw by Foxden Equine is a balanced Magnesium and Chromium pelleted formula that is designed to support calm, balanced behavior in equines. This show-safe horse supplement effectively reduces nervousness, hypersensitivity, muscle tension, and irritability to allow horses to focus on their performances in the show ring or on the trails. Quiessence is all-natural and USEF and AQHA-legal with no known side effects.

Additionally, Quiessence Pellets have been shown to be beneficial for horses with limited access to forage and their diet primarily consists of processed feeds. New studies have shown that feeding Magnesium and Chromium may help animals who are cresty-necked, founder-prone, or laminitic, by reducing the tendency to founder by supporting normal glucose metabolism and increasing peripheral circulation.

Proudly made in the USA.

Horses that may benefit from Quiessence®

  • Horses with obesity problems
  • Horses prone to or at risk for founder
  • Horses prone to cresty necks
  • Nervous, tense horses that show an inability to learn and concentrate
  • Horses with tight tense muscles that are slow to warm up and have sore or tight backs
  • Easy keepers on a hay-only or forage-only diet
  • Horses whose main diet consists of preserved and processed feedstuff
  • Horses grazing land known to be low in magnesium
  • Horses grazing on acid soils
  • Horses with problems gaining or maintaining weight
  • Horses with nerve conditions

Magnesium works closely with Potassium and Calcium in cells, and a deficiency of Magnesium often results in low interstitial Potassium and the corresponding symptoms. Muscles are the main body store for Magnesium and, if there is a deficiency in the diet, the body draws Magnesium from the muscles. If enough is withdrawn, muscle Magnesium levels drop, resulting in neuromuscular problems. Therefore, horses and ponies that are nervous, tense, show an inability to learn and concentrate, have tight, tense muscles, are slow to warm up, and have sore or tight backs can show improvement when given Quiessence®.

Giving additional Magnesium and Chromium to cresty-necked, insulin-resistant, founder-prone horses and ponies may help reduce the tendency to founder. Magnesium supports peripheral circulation to the extremities, which may ease sore feet and promote healing in foundered animals.  Chromium has been shown to improve glucose clearance by improving insulin sensitivity in various classes of livestock.  Quiessence® provides high levels of Magnesium and Chromium in a pelleted form.

In a study conducted in 2002-2003, founder-prone horses with thick, cresty necks showed a reduction in neck thickness and hardness when fed a Magnesium supplement. The reduction in neck thickness made the horses easier to manage, ride and handle, as well as being more aesthetically pleasing.
