I LOVE this thread!! This is so interesting to me. There runs a danger of not knowing for sure if it really is healthy for your horse, but it's so helpful when it does work.
This isn't a real home remedy, but, this concerns those of you who use Mare Magic. Mare Magic is literally just coarse ground Rubeus Ideaus or Red Raspberry Leaf. You can purchase dried and ground Raspberry Leaf from bulk herb resellers for cheaper. (You can even purchase it organic if you so wish) Two things: I would be careful of purchasing finely ground, as this can blow away or be inhaled (not too huge a deal as many supplements are powder form) and secondly, I would purchase a small amount first just to make sure your horse will even ingest it. I'm beginning to believe my mare is NOT a picky eater at all. I don't plan on testing that theory much.
That's all, that's my tiny contribution.
