Just wanted to share this. Received today .. just moments ago. It truly does warm my heart! …
ME: The BEST supplement for hooves is 1. as much movement the horse can get in a 24/7 period of time and 2. RAW FORAGE … supplement 24/7 hay/grazing with fresh veggies, fruits, nuts and seeds. THAT feeds the immune system and will strengthen new hoof growth like you’ve never seen before!
LAURA O: I learned this from you 20 years ago, Gwen and since then I’ve grown a garden just for them every year. Also, as part of the movement plan/rehab, we go for walks or I gather things to feed them. The grass is greener on the other side of the fence and have realized that horses really do love new ground! It’s done wonders for Promenade Walks as well. I’ll start off with coaxing and discomfort and I’ll be thinking enough, maybe we should go back, but then I get 200’ down the road, the ears prick forward, the heel first landings begin and suddenly I’m being dragged forward. With a balanced diet, the trees are no longer getting chewed on any more either. No composting bin needed either. The veggie trimmings that are safe, go straight to the barn. I’ll do a hay test every year, but that’s just a small part of it. What I don’t know, they tell me

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.
