Confined and Malnourished

Confined and Malnourished

Sailor was kicked in the shoulder when he was six months old. His owner said to put him down if he couldn't race. A guy took Sailor to his boarding facility and put him in an indoor 10×15 stall with no sunlight, dirt, or ability to touch another horse. He was kept there for three years, confined and malnourished. There were nine additional family members, all starving, on the property. 

We got permission and began rehoming the horses.

I took Sailor as we had no idea of his condition after growing up in a confined space and being so malnourished. 

He is a darling, friendly, and curious guy. He is kind and gentle with children and the elderly. He's been with me for seven years now. I was able to ride him 22 times before we decided that he was just too sore in his front feet to carry a rider. He has juvenile arthritis, so now we play at clicker training and introduce people to how wonderful it is to spend time with horses in a positive, harmonious environment. 

Sailor was a weaver*, so after years of searching, we finally found an old homestead property in Santa Rosa, CA, where Sailor and his pal, Holly, live loose on 60 acres with a creek and many very old oak trees. There is an abundance of grass to eat. 

Sailor has the Transfer Factor Premix Pellets in his ration to help ward off Cushing's and laminitis. We work closely with Trudy Johnson to help me monitor his overall health. I'm so very grateful and comforted to have your transfer factor pellets to help me keep sweet Sailor safe and happy.

*Weaving is a repetitive behavior in horses where the horse sways its head, neck, and forequarters from side to side, shifting its weight from one front leg to the other. It's a common stable vice that can occur when a horse is confined to a stall for an extended period or when it experiences stress, boredom, or frustration.

Transfer Factor Technology

Trust transfer factor technology to optimize immune system function. While many products use single rudimentary ingredients known to aid immune health, Ramaekers Nutrition delivers the only immune support products harnessing transfer factor supported by a unique, patented blend of essential nutrients and potent nutraceuticals. For example, see our Mission.

Patented Formulas

Our patented formulas use transfer factor technology. These formulas are derived from a proprietary blend of bioactive peptides and are based on the synergistic effect of combining naturally sourced biologically active peptides (transfer factor).

These bioactive peptides are extracted from bovine colostrum and egg yolks. To clarify, this blend combines unique plant-derived heteropolysaccharides, lactic acid-producing probiotics, and highly bioavailable micronutrients. To summarize, combining these immune active ingredients allows a dramatically enhanced immune response in equine health without side effects. For example, see Bovine ProductsCanine ProductsFeline ProductsEquine Products, and Other Livestock Products.

Unique Formulas

Our unique formulas help educate and boost the immune system for overall health and vitality. In short, immune education starts at birth and should continue throughout life with our patented products.

Natural Pain Relievers

Dr. Ramaekers focused on replacing these nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories like Butazolodin and Banamine. To begin with, these pain relievers have many serious side effects, like bleeding ulcers. For example, see Equine Health.

With this in mind, he formulated products using natural pain relievers like curcumin, Boswellia, hyaluronic acid, glucosamine, and chondroitins. Most importantly, these natural products are equally effective and have no side effects.

Focusing on a mineral balance makes these products more available at the cellular level and allows joint absorption. Moreover, Dr. Ramaekers has replaced 80% of typical Western medicine pain relievers with his natural formulas.
