Let's talk about food: blueberries for horses

Let's talk about food: blueberries for horses

When I was growing up we had three channels on the television, Walter Cronkite was the go-to guy for news, dogs ate table scraps and if you were lucky enough to own a horse it grazed with cows.   We had Superman but there were no super models, super-sized meals, and certainly no super foods.   So, when I heard that blueberries were a "SUPER FOOD" it struck me as little more than hyperbole; an exaggerated claim meant to sell fruit.

I was wrong.

Spirulina for horses

Let's talk about food: spirulina for horses

The Sea Biscuit is by far my most popular product.  This is not because it tastes great and is a food every horse loves, but is due to it's effectiveness in providing many horses with relief from common maladies.    On their own you have some of Mother Nature's most potent nutraceuticals.  Together?  There is a reason many clients refer to these as "magic".

Let's talk about food: sweet potatoes for horses

Let's talk about food: sweet potatoes for horses

Let's talk about a real food for horses, the sweet potato.  (Which is NOT a yam)  Vitamin A deficiencies are apparently one of the most common deficiencies in horses.  You can purchase a powdered supplement that helps your horse meet this nutritional requirement, you can feed 3-5 carrots per day, or you can try a 100 gram sweet potato, which has more Vitamin A and betacarotene than any other root vegetable.  Supplement this with a Chock Full'a Chia Sweet Potato-Fig biscuit to boost the overall  nutrition and as the months go by, enjoy the visible results.  
Explorations in Mindfulness: Part One

Explorations in Mindfulness: Part One

Are we mindful when we spend time with our horse? Are we deliberate with our body language when we approach them? When we touch them? When we train them? When we feed them? Are we mindful about what we are putting into their bodies and how this effects them and our relationship with them? These are just some of the subtopics under “Mindfulness” that I want to explore as I strive to live more deliberately.
