D.I.Y. Mixing your own herbs

Just wondering if anyone else mixes their own horse herbs to add to their horses diet. Would love to know your recipes and what they treat. Cheers :)

I'm in! Currently my gelding is on a mix of these -


Iceland moss
Marigold and dandelion blossoms
Birch leaves and buds
White wormwood
Sagebrush
Sea buckthorn pressings
Home-made apple cider vinegar
Garlic
Brewers's yeast.


I keep him on a mix for no longer than 2 weeks, depending on the reason, why I started giving him the herbs, then switch or give it a break for a while, not to overdo.

I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.

Wow one person in the whole wide world feeds their horses a herbal mix ;). Any others out there feed a herbal mix.

Bump! It seems, there's only two of us in the whole wide world.

Though I have quite a number of horsey friends, who also make their own herbal mixes, and grow and harvest wild herbs.
