Get Rid of the Muffin Top!

Is your #horse a little pudgy? Well, the same #diet for humans to lose a few pounds works for horses, too! ESPECIALLY horses! (But leave out the meat in the horse’s diet! *grin*)

FEED RAW, FRESH FORAGES and toss out the processed stuff. Grass Hay 24/7, ‘salad’ once a day, raw, naturally chelated minerals, salt, water … and that’s it! KISS! Your horse that needs to gain weight will and the horse that needs to lose weight will.

IF other factors are correctly in place, as well …

Just like with humans — processed foods and supplements cause the “muffin tops” … well, ‘girthy’ horses and ‘cresty’ horses — those extra fat pads are their ‘muffin top’ … think about it. Then holler at me if you’d like to know more.   

Your Horse’s HERB GARDEN

Growing your horses’ HERB GARDENS?  Awesome!

Planting and maintaining your own garden has many benefits; however, the dirt-stained hands you get from gardening are far from ideal. This easy-to-make Gardener’s Hand Soap exfoliates, cleanses, and moisturizes all in one use!


Ingredients:

1/2 cup white sugar
3 tablespoons liquid castile soap
1 teaspoon almond oil
7 drops Clary Sage
5 drops of Melaleuca

Directions:

  1. In a small bowl, add all ingredients and stir until smooth and combined.
  2. Pour into air-tight container and keep next to sink for easy use.
  3. To use, grab a handful of soap and scrub at your dirt-covered hands. After you’re done, your hands will be clean, soft, and exfoliated.

The MOST Important …

 

“The rear of the hoof is possibly THE most important area for determining the health of the hoof. Bowker remarked that he kept trying to look elsewhere, but no matter what he did, it all kept coming back to the rear of the hoof! ”  —

Gwen is a wonderful teacher. When I first got my horse Jigs, he was pushy and didn’t listen. After a few sessions with her, he became a barn favorite for his good manner and sunny personality.
Gwen trained me I think, not JIGS :). I highly reccomend her.

Owner, Horses Know the Way Home
Gwen,
What impresses me about you is, you look not only at the hoof but the whole horse and the whole horse environment. Who is the owner and where does the horse live and how are they treated and fed.
You stay on top of the the latest research and you follow up with pertinent information in a very timely fashion.

“… If it weren’t for you Gwen, my passion for horses would not have grown to what it is today.  I started my online lessons with Gwen in 2008 and have taken many lessons with her. She really knows her stuff. My horse is healthy. My other horse, Corado, died of cancer at 18. He may not have lived as long if it weren’t for Gwen. Both of my horses never colicked, their feet were absolutely amazing (with Gwen’s guidance), never lame.  … After 5 years of following Gwen’s method, I have proof that she knows her stuff (and if she doesn’t she’ll find the information).  Love you Gwen.

Hi Gwen,
     I first came to you because of my need to get ‘ real “ answers  about natural hoof care.  Your original Penzance website led me to enroll in your class Natural Hoof Care 101. I knew absolutely nothing at that time and had a horse that had recently foundered.
     After working with you I working with you, I came away with the confidence that I had made the right decision to keep my horse as natural as possible, regardless of domestication.
     I feel that overall your reasoning has been solid throughout the years and that is why I still call upon you as one of my two ” go to ” mentors regarding anything hoof. The other is K C LaPierre.  Beyond the hoof, especially respecting nutrition, Gwen– u da girl !

JOAN, FL : ”My life and the health and vitality of all my animals has been forever transformed for the better.  Thanks Gwen for all you give to all of us.  You are a gifted healer and teacher.”

MA : Thank you Gwen, for your inspiring articles and ideas. Together with Mark Rashid, you are one of the greatest horsepersons of recent times.

VANESSA, NH :
“I would entrust the care and well-being of any horse, sound or lame, healthy or sick, troubled or at peace, to Gwen Santagate. I give her my highest recommendation because she is one of the most honest, wisest,  and most circumspect people I have ever met. She goes the extra mile (or ten) for the horse’s sake and makes every animal’s total well-being her top priority. My horse recommends her, too -four hooves up! –  because, thanks to her, and her alone, he is alive and well.”

Are you facing challenges with your horse?
Would you like a stronger connection with your horse?

Do you have a horse that is balky, pushy, spooky, unfocused, or unable to perform at his highest standard?

Do you have a horse that suffers from PTSD from a former situation and you’re not sure how to handle it?

Do you have a phobic horse? i.e. claustrophobic, won’t load on trailer, scared of flags, whips, buggies, doesn’t want to be touched, won’t allow hooves to be handled, head shy, ear shy, what-have-you?

I’ve worked and studied with some of the best horsemanship masters and lived with horses of all ages, breeds, and disciplines for over 50 years. I can help you overcome these obstacles with your horse in a gentle, ‘natural’ and positive manner-one that is strongly effective and understood by the horse AND … you.

Serving the Lee, Charlotte and Collier, Glades and Hendry counties.

I will help you using PENZANCE horses on my farm in Cape Coral or will travel to your farm to teach you how to form an incredible bond and connection with your own horse and how to overcome the challenges you’re presently facing.

Principles of Natural Healing

The Principles of Natural Healing
as noted in “The Nature of Animal Healing” by Dr. Marty Goldstein

  1. Disease is an absence of health, and vice versa: health is an absence of disease. But health was here first!
  2. Disease is a process used by nature in an attempt to get itself healthy.
  3. Degenerative disease is not caused by nature. It is an aberration of nature (caused mostly by – in my opinion – man).
  4. Cancer is nothing more than a severe aberration of nature manifested in and by the body.
  5. Sickness is an excuse to get healthy.
  6. Don’t mess with Mother Nature!
  7. the mechanism for healing is already built into all individuals. Healing therefore occurs most rapidly when we realign with the natural laws governing that mechanism.
  8. Pure health is spontaneous healing.
  9. The immune system functions maximally and at peak efficiency in its totally unaltered state.
  10. The degree to which we have to work toward health is directly proportional to the amount we have messed it up in the first place. Health is simple; disease brings in complexity.
  11. Generally, it’s not what you put into the body that restores health; rather it’s what you let the body eliminate.
  12. Physically, health isn’t everything, but without it, everything is nothing.
  13. Food, including the necessary vitamins and minerals, was intended not to improve, but rather to maintain, the body. Therefore the need for treatment reflects the degree to which the individual has strayed from nature.
  14. The body does not have to degenerate or age nearly as quickly as we presume. Each body cell has the ability to replicate itself 100 percent, and the process should continue for longer than we currently expect if we minimize deleterious effects on the cellular structure. It is only what we choose to do to the body, both consciously and unconsciously, that leads to the premature aging we experience.
  15. Genetic predispositions to disease are only predispositions, and do not have to manifest if health is maintained. Once a genetically predisposed disease condition appears clinically, it can be reversed, although with more difficulty, as a course toward health is taken.
  16. Nature and the being itself are the true healers. The practitioner, in the guise of being the healer, is truly the guide. Or: Physician, heal thyself!
  17. Nature uses disease to establish balance. Only when our bodies are out of balance are we subject to disease, and if we can just endure the natural healing process, the disease will soon abate, having restored us to the balance that is optimal health!

About Dr. Goldstein: Dr. Goldstein is a graduate of the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine and runs a renowned clinic in South Salem, NY.

In his practice, Dr. Goldstein has had extraordinary success treating cancer and leukemia. He believes that the best way to cure an animal who is ill is to help the animal cure itself. We are not the true healers of our pets –THEY are. By treating the root of the problem instead of its symptoms, holistic medicine enables our pets to regain and maintain their own health.
