Spring Treasures

cleaversThis time of the year is such a wonderful and mystical time — all sorts of new babies and sprouts begin to appear – from birds to butterflies to wild herbs and plants just awakening from their deep winter sleep.

Here on PENZANCE I am always on the prowl for weeds and such that benefit the horses as well as the humans.  One particularly beneficial herb is CLEAVERS — a great spring tonic that has the properties to cleanse and detox the entire body from head to hoof — erm — toe.

Herbalists have long regarded cleavers as a valuable lymphatic tonic and diuretic.  Cleavers is widely used by Western herbalists to treat edema and other forms of swelling due to its stimulating effect on the lymphatic system, which is responsible for clearing extracellular waste from the body;  passing toxins to the liver and the kidneys for cleansing.

Conditions such as psoriasis and arthritis are soothed by this purifying of the blood.

Cleavers is also known for its beneficial properties in aiding the treatment of urinary infections and is particularly helpful for a long-term and safe aid of feline lower urinary tract disease.  It helps clean out gravel and urinary stones.  The herb may also be useful for chronic low-grade kidney inflammation.

In studies cleavers extract lowered blood pressurewithout slowing heart rate or having any health-threatening side effects.

Cleavers is considered a vulnerary herb. This means that the herb helps to heal wounds – specifically tumors and ulcers in the mouth and throat. Cleavers can also be used as a wash or poultice for skin irritations, sunburn and cancerous growths, according to Tierra in “Planetary Herbology,” although no direct evidence for its efficacy in skin irritation or cancer is available at this time.

Cleavers may be an effective addition to healing salves and ointments due to its cooling, soothing and wound-healing properties.

I love to gather up Cleavers this time of year to add to the freshly picked Dandelions and adding them as a base to my horses’ ‘salads’.

They love ’em, too! (Oh, and PS — I add ’em to Hubby’s and my salads, too! Mmmmmmm. )

Stay tuned for I’ll be adding more wild ‘weeds’ as the weeks go on …


It’s Been a Tough Winter

It’s been a tough winter – everywhere and for everyone. Even for the horses. Their bodies use up alot of energy to stay warm and keep their systems going. Like us, they can get spasms during chills and shivering that will get ‘stuck’ and need help releasing. They slip and twist on the ice – that, too, can set up spasms in the body. If these issues are not identified and released they can precipitate behavioral challenges for the handler and rider come spring conditioning. Challenges that cannot be ‘disciplined’ or ‘punished’ away but must be viewed from a whole horse perspective.

I offer FULL consults – both distance and on farm. From head to hoof, your entire horse is evaluated and ‘treated’ using my WHOLE HEALTH for the WHOLE HORSE protocol.

Email to me if you’d like more info: caballus@charter.net or shoot me a PM here on Facebook. I work with all ages, all breeds, all disciplines.

Your horse deserves a break today!

Raw, Chelated Minerals



Feeding horses doesn’t have to be a drawn out complicated task. Over 50 years of living with horses and caring for them has led me down paths about which I can’t even begin to tell you. I used to ‘believe’ in all the research for the best processed this or that or the other thing. I used to ‘believe’ in all the chemicals, the reports, the manufacturers’ golden words. I’ve thrown away more useless supplements that have cost me more thousands of dollars than I can even think of. Coat supplements, hoof supplements, calming supplements, breathing supplements, feed supplements, drugs for this or that – I’m sure if you have horses then you know about what I’m talking. Pages and pages and pages in catalogues from countless manufacturers all spouting their products are the best for horses.

And now I follow the K.I.S.S. routine  —  Raw forages, 24/7 Hay, Salt, Fresh Water 24/7 and raw, naturally chelated minerals.

Can’t fool Mother Nature! She knows best. And Mother Nature doesn’t supply processed feeds in 50# bags or artificial supplements in little plastic containers.

FEED THE HORSE LIKE A HORSE!  Horses are herbivores. They eat vegetation of all kinds and types – trees, bushes, grasses, herbs, flowers, weeds, leaves, nuts, seeds, roots and EACH variety of forage, EACH type of forage supplies its own natural nutrition to the horse. Chlorophyll, Vits A, B, C, D, trace minerals, proteins, oils and more.And horses EAT DIRT for its mineral content.

In todays world, however, our forages, even wild, are weak in nutrients simply because of what mankind has done in terms of using artificial herbicides, pesticides, fertilizers and more when growing crops. They are weak in nutrients because their own supply for growth, DIRT, is deficient in synergistic minerals.

In Nevada, however, there are mines that are pure and unadulterated by man other than to mine for the RAW, CHELATED MINERALS that they hold.  And these minerals are, simply, what NATURAL HORSE MINERALScontains.  Find out more about what these minerals are here:

What are chelated minerals? Chelation is the suspension of a mineral between two or more amino acids, or bonding to “small proteins”, peptides or amino acids. (“Chela” is Greek for “claw”.) Chelation substances can include things like amino acids, ascorbic acid and orotates, as well as hydrolyzed protein. Chelation improves the absorption of the mineral from the digestive tract.  Chelated Minerals are ORGANIC minerals.Inorganic minerals have to be ‘chelated’ before they can be utilized proficiently in the gut. Organic minerals, however, have been previously processed by plants or other marine life, thus ‘chelated’. Inorganic trace  minerals are in the raw, elemental or metallic state and, when ingested, cause absorption problems for the organism that has ingested them.

NATURAL HORSE MINERALS ARE CHELATED, RAW, ORGANIC MINERALS that are pure and mined from several mines in the heart of Nevada. Just what your or my horses would be eating if they lived free on the range out there along with their forage and natural salt.

Are you convinced yet?  More specs … One 35# bucket of Natural Horse Minerals will last one horse about 9 months when administered at 2 oz. a day …
that’s just a little over .87 cents a day! 

One 15# bucket of Natural Horse Minerals will last one horse about 120 days when administered at 2 oz. a day. And that’s just a little over $1 a day! 

Remember what you read above?  The natural diet for the natural horse is SIMPLE — raw forages, 24/7 hay, MINERALS, salt and water. Oh, and I add Transfer Factor at the start of a new diet just to help keep the Immune System at peak, working order. Transfer Factor will increase the natural killer cells in the immune system by 238% – 437% … can’t get any more “peak” than that!The ongoing, healthy, natural diet will keep the domestic horse in the best condition possible!
