This is a complete supplement with key ingredients from unique, all-natural minerals. We own the exclusive rights to a unique mineral deposit formed millions of years ago when ash from an erupting volcano merged with seawater resulting in an blend of essential minerals. Extensive testing and years of results have proven that our minerals supplement is unlike any other. Beware of those who try to imitate our products!
Horses perform at their peak when they their diet consists of essential nutrients for optimum health. You can see their endurance rise, their attention sharpen, their coats shine, and their healing quicken. You may be surprised how much horses love TME essential mineral supplements and how they no longer require as much convention feed—saving you money.
As an owner, trainer, and breeder for over 44 years, I know horses and I love them. I currently own 41 head. They are my passion and a part of my family’s everyday life.
That’s why I created Thunder Mountain Equine. Anything similarly named is a counterfeit and a rip-off. My “Sandy’s Formula” is the original developed over the course of many years of painstaking research and trials. My horses are my laboratory.
I’m a lifetime member of AQHA and APHA and have competed or worked in barrel racing, reining, cutting, western pleasure, team penning, reined cowhorse, sorting, ranch work. jumping, racing, dressage (years of lessons in Europe), and as a vet tech. I’ve been around riders and owners who have witnessed firsthand the results of the original Thunder Mountain Equine (TME) essential minerals supplement.

This is where it all began... and all because of eggs.
Question? Which came first; the chicken or the egg? In my case it was the egg or rather the hen that laid it. WHY were the eggs from my hens when reaching their 1-year birthday always had thin shells and ridges? I tried everything for those hens; different feed, cheap feed, expensive ALL-natural feed, 16% lay mash, 20% lay mash, making my OWN lay mash, vinegar in the water, baking soda, a pan of raw milk, oyster shell. I even solicited the advice of the master ‘henneries’ but nothing seemed to work.Despite all my efforts those blasted hens still laid eggs with ridges and paper-thin shells and there was absolutely nothing I could do about it. Perplexing. Oh, the eggs out of my fancy Rhode Island hens were jumbo sized, brown and were fertile. IF they could make it to the kitchen without cracking, they tasted wonderful, however and sadly to say several succumbed only to make it to the garbage because of those blasted thin shells with ridges.
This is where the story of Thunder Mountain Equine begins and all because of some brown eggs with ridges.
We have a small horse breeding operation in south central Utah and like any other same farm/ranch raise a few hens who lay fresh eggs as well a couple of Jerseys cows we milk for our family. Yup, I knowI already told you about those blasted brown eggs. So, what do eggs have to do with minerals? As I studied, reading everything until I was bleary eyed, I discovered the one thing missing in diet was minerals. The lack of minerals created a lack of absorption and therefore a lack of nutrients. My hens although I was feeding the best food possible were starving and their eggshells were the witness of that starvation.
Then I learned not all minerals and mineral sources are the same. Some are man-made; synthetic you might say, although they have the same formula, they are not the same. A mineral duplicated in the chemistry lab is not the same as the one occurring in nature. Many mineral supplements are derived from fractured minerals sources such as plants or dirt.Specific dirt may be high in certain sources of minerals so that mineral is singled out and removed from the source (fractured) then added to other minerals from other sources supposedly to make a complete mineral supplement.These minerals may not be compatible with each other much like mixing vegetable oil and water. Although both are liquids and with much effort can be mixed together to form ONE liquid, however if left to set for even a short period of time they separate returning their original form.
It was then that I embarked upon a journey to find those ALL-natural minerals. I would not have believed the journey that lay ahead. One day as I shared my frustration concerning my eggs with my old friend, he told me about a unique mineral deposit located on a ranch owned by his old rancher friend. It was discovered by him and his siblings quite by accident.
They noticed range cattle and a few mustangs would gather around a certain area and despite the obvious lack of adequate feed these animals always seemed to be fatter and healthier than other cattle herds in the valley. Upon further investigation the old rancher and his siblings (who have now passed away) discovered a few mounds of dirt where the animals had dug and pawed to get the mineral rich dirt just under the surface. It became obvious why the animals spent so much time in that area chewing on the rocks and licking the dirt. This dirt was actually minerals.
My friend introduced me to his old rancher friend, and I was taken to the site. I listened to his story and took several samples and had them assayed. According to the test results there were over 70 essential minerals in their natural form all married together in the same location. I called the mineral rich samples, ‘Magic Dirt’. Arrangements and agreements were made and the rights to the mineral’s deposits secured.
So... somewhere in a secreted location, near an old volcano caldera is the private deposit of our natural plant-based dirt containing 75 all-natural, chelated minerals. This ‘magic dirt’ was mined, cleaned, screened, and bagged for a guaranteed analysis. Almost immediately we started feeding this ‘magic dirt’ to the hens and the eggs shell problems were resolved. No more ridges.
After years of years of mixing hot mash grain with the magic mineral dirt I put into a perfected pellet form with numerous other healthy and essential ingredients and Thunder Mountain Equine was officially born.
Many years later we still see consistent and miraculous results in our animals, especially the horses. These are just a few of the results we have witnessed:
WHY does Thunder Mountain Equine work? Because it is complete and the ONLY supplement your horse will ever need. It is unique because the minerals such as chromium, silver, selenium, manganese, copper, lithium and zinc are all naturally occurring, all together in their original, plant-based form. There are no fractured foods and no synthetic or man-made minerals. We invite you to try it. Your horses will LOVE the taste and you will LOVE the results.

We look forward to hearing from you!
