I've been a little quiet on Facebook lately while I was making preparations to welcome the latest member of my family home, this magnificent big Warmblood horse, Harry! my heart has opened exponentially after bringing him home! I'm on cloud nine right now, nothing makes me happier than being a mother to my animal children!
On a nutrition note, I always have to laugh when I ask people what they feed their horses; it is extremely common for people to feed powdered garlic to ward off parasites (feeding my horses garlic has proven to be the ONLY effective barrier against ticks on my horses; and yes I have tried the nasty Ivomectin drench programs!), they will feed organic unfiltered Apple cider vinegar, cod liver oil, echinacea, dandelion, rescue remedy, all easily accessible at any stock feeder, and common powerful nutritional supplements for humans too! Horse people will happily treat all of their horse's ailments from worms to flies to parasites to itch to nervousness with nutritional herbs and supplements, but baulk at trying it for themselves!
I say: if it works for your horse, it can work for you!
