We are proud to be Independant Dynamite Marketing Distributors as Dynamite products provide THE HIGHEST quality vitamin and mineral supplements for all living creatures.  We use it here at Walking-After-Midnight Farm (formerly Bailey's BlackWidow Farm), on all our horses (and personal Dogs, Cats, Goats too), to reduce the risk of collic and to boost their immune system.  Within 3 months time we reduced our feed bill by over 1/2, increased the weight on all our horses, coats are noticeably healthier and horses are relaxed and bright eyed.  No wonder Dynamite provides a money back guarantee as their products are the finest available.
