Meet Candy a Quarter horse mare on commercial feed

Here is a horse named Candy who I worked on yesterday, she is 23 and her digestion and whole body system was shutting down, she was walking pigeon toed in the back end very stiff.
Her diet was commercial grain + corn oil- just vaccinated + ivermictin.
Now the owners other horses were on the same diet except they were younger- Their livers can handle the commercial diet, but over time the straw will break the camels back.
This is Candy after I worked on her-see how her hind end is tucked in, I did some emotional release - we are switching her diet to Big Sky and hay pellets Standlee will take pictures in 2 weeks.
She also has a knee we will be giving her minizyme and see what happens-
Stay tuned and please subscribe to my blog for more updates.

Another reason not to feed Beet Pulp

Do you remember the two women who came to the expo with us? Well, one of their horses choked last night on beet pulp. The vet came out and tubed her. It was very scary. I offered the high trax but they gave her mineral oil instead. They feed so much bad stuff...Red Cell, beet pulp, molasses, Log Cabin syrup. And grain three times a week. We've tried to get them to at least give the pellets but they aren't interested. So...that's how is goes. The horse is ok today and should recover

My horse is my friend and not my slave

Testimonial on a client who made her horse sound!

 So this client was having trouble with her horse being off, after she used my remedy to rid her horse of ring-bone ,he became off.
She had bought my book How to Identify & Release Your Horses Pain Points she watched the DVD 
read the workbook and here is her results!

ok so I finally worked on her tonight. I did goof with a couple things  cause I didn't take the book out with me. her left side of atlas was hard and her eyes were ever so slightly misaligned. had to use lavender on atlas to get it to release. her front ribs felt fine to me, well at least I think they were! her back had reaction on left side more than right. I lifted her belly a couple times and that seemed to help. but I screwed up with the flinching along her back in front of her hips. I didn't put my finger on her girth area to test. she is very tender there, so I kept lifting her back up and it seemed to make her a little more comfortable. So need to recheck properly tomorrow. I did trot her in a circle on a lead rope and she seemed a whole lot better. I plan to trail ride her tomorrow. appreciate any feedback from you.
