    Natural Worming

    We work our way up to 1 tablespoon full a day. Start slowly as you will get detox symptoms if you go too quickly due to parasites dying off releasing crap into your system.. I add mine to my muslie at breakfast and Clive mixes his up in a half pint of water and drinks it before it settles. We have found that folk find their own 'dose' as every 'body' is different. It takes about 10 days or so to get up to dose then you have it every day for 60 days to get the whole worm cycle. I find a three month programme is best to get you into the new routine then you can ease off a bit if you like or carry on a bit every day, it has plenty of health benefits other than being a natural wormer
  4. Congratulations Caitlin and Briggy, what an achievement for you both xxx

    Natural Worming

    I have been using diatomaceous earth for a number of years now with great success. The only downside is that it must go into a wet feed. It has many other health benefits too.

    Older horses and QS

    I thought I ought to give you a little update on Buster. He has been taking himself to QS practice when I'm not around! I've been told he joins in with the others, at liberty, trotting circles but not jumping the barrels lol. So it just goes to show that they do enjoy the work and it seems like he is ready for some more assignments after his few months holiday. How great is that Happy, healthy horse all thanks to QS
  10. Well Apollo and I are getting along quite nicely now. He tries very hard to get it right and is a quick learner, really quick. I did what you said Shane and he picks up the pattern very quickly when I am consistent and when I am not focused it gets messy. In fact he is so quick at picking up the pattern that he then anticipates what I am going to ask him to do so I need to keep it interesting for him and chop and change it around quite a bit, that is what I am supposed to do right? He is forgiving as you said Jen, thank goodness! I have been riding him more now we've built our relationship and got to know one another and he is a good boy for me although he does still try to play with the lead rope and tries to take it in his mouth from time to time. I try not to give him the opportunity to do this as it isn't very safe although I don't want to tell him off or over react. I am guessing it will get less and less as time goes by as he no longer does this when I am putting his halter on and off like he used to do. I suppose its a young horse curiosity, playfulness thing being mouthy like that as he isn't nasty with it. I really am very pleased with his progress and we had a great time away with the girls in Thursley. Onwards and upwards

    Proud flesh

    Oh, and don't wash it off either as you will wash off any healed skin cells so leave well alone, trust it is working and keep putting it on, you will have beautiful skin in no time at all x

    Proud flesh

    I found this one in Australia. https://www.healthandhappiness.com.au/online-shop/earthsgarden-diy-raw-ingredients/mineral-clay/australian-green-clay-detail There are some recipe ideas at the bottom of the page however I would either use it on its own or offer the bottle of lavender essential oil (buy top quality from reputable brand) and if your horse responds positively by smelling it, lifting his top lip, yawning, licking and chewing, walking away and returning to it is also a positive response so do take your time and allow this to happen. Buy a kilo of clay and make a mix of 100gms clay to 10 drops of selected oil and mix as you would flour and butter by rubbing it in then when ready, using gloves, put it all over the bare flesh and cover it. The clay will stick where it is supposed to and just keep reapplying every day. It will be absorbed into the body, some will drop off and some will sit on the skin, just keep putting it on. Your horse will enjoy the effects I am sure. It is protective, healing and cooling. It can be put on wet however it can pull the skin as it dries out so see how you go with applying dry. The oils I commonly mix into clay are Yarrow (inky blue in colour) for open wounds and fresh cuts. Thyme for infected tissue or to prevent infection Orange for itchy skin Lavender for healing and proud flesh German chamomile (inky blue in colour) for allergies I would ask the horse which oils it wanted, looking for positive responses and make it as above and it can be used on its own too. It is amazing stuff and I use it effectively all the time, every first aid kit needs green clay Keep us posted Tracy xx
