Natural herbal remidies...

Opinions and websites (please) with a list of them would be great if anyone knows of any.

Do you use them?

Anyone want to share some and the uses?

I used herbal calmers. Mare Magic (Mare Magic Mare Magic (Equine - Horse Supplements - Calming Agents) did nothing at all, but OMG it smells good , Moody Mare (that one actually seems to work for me, smells pretty nice too, but strong Moody Mare Wendals Herbs (Equine - Horse Supplements - Calming Agents)), and Wendals Calmer (Calmer Wendals Herbs (Equine - Horse Supplements - Calming Agents) heck this one gave totally opposite effect on my horse. I tried it 3 times and every time she was HOT - running, hard to stop, and spooky on everything. I believe it's garlic, which gives such effect.

I don't use all the natural remedies, but I do use a couple.

Rescue Remedy = Shock

Celery Seed = Arthritis
Burdock - Also Arthritis

Rosehips = Preggo mares

Chamomile = Relaxation

Flax seed = Coats. Make em' shiny

I found these on this website : Herbal horse remedies

And then I consulted a local expert before trying.....I already used rosehips on the dogs, so horses were no big deal

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

SorrelHorse, How do you feed your chamomile? Do you purchase dried, cut and sifted? Whole dried flowers?

I get them whole. I will give it to my barrel horses so they relax an don't wear themselves out at the show....

However, if you can get some chamomile tea packets and make yourself a bran mash, then just through the tea in there after you brew it.

How do you know how much to give? and how much do you give? Natural remedies have always facinated me.

This was posted a little bit ago. I dunno if you already saw it or not.

And these are the people I'm using at the moment for my horse. I took him to a professional that's been studying this for over 30 years, and for the past 28 years hasn't had to take a horse to the vet.

Also here's a neat website that I had been browsing through too.

Truth passes through three stages. First it is ridiculed. Second it is violently opposed. Third it is accepted as self evident.
