WHITETHORN EQUINE HEALTH
Our customers have been asking for Brewer's Yeast and after some searching we found a good quality source which is inactivated and preservative free from the continent (unfortunately we couldnt find any locally). As many of you will know, wherever possible, we always choose products and packaging that minimise the impact our services have on the environment.
Brewer's yeast is selected by animals to improve and support the microbiome in the digestive system. The microbiome is often compromised by antibiotics, wormers, inappropriate diet and also stress. Offer dry on a plate - please do not mix into feed. Click on the link for more details: Clays, Mud, Brewers Yeast & Beeswax
Pictured left is part of our new track system that we are trialing on our summer grazing fields (roughly 5 acre field) for the horses. The track width varies in places and goes along side the boundary river and our forest.
We have noticed a significant increase in the amount of their activity which can only mean an improvement in their fitness and health!
Also to note that the summer grazing has an abundance of wild herbs such as eyebright, ladies mantle, ladies bed straw (used to stuff mattress') wild iris', meadowsweet, cleavers, violets and so on!
Definitely a success so far and we look forward to putting in place an all-weather surface as soon as possible!
Hi! My name is Carly and I head up the Whitethorn Team. I am also a lifelong lover of Dogs and Horses. When my mare was having regular episodes of Colic I looked around for a solution and found Applied Zoopharmacognosy (also called the self-selection method and free choice botanicals). I was so impressed that I trained in this fascinating effective herbal approach and have gone on now to train others. That was over a decade ago and I am now part of the Whitethorn Team and work with horses and dogs all over the world to help them restore emotional and physical health. As part of the support we offer, we also supply herbal remedies at our online shop along with providing workshops and one-to-one mentoring (Onsite & Online) on how to work with them. We truly hope that you enjoy and maybe learn a little from our blog. Carly and the Whitethorn Team, Sligo Ireland
