Horse's & Salt Blocks-Waste of your MONEY!

A cows tongue is ruff ,
 making it easy for the cow to lick a salt block and get minerals into him.

A horses tongue is smooth , where it cannot get any salt from a block due to the saliva that makes the salt fall to the ground, 
you as a horse owner  are wasting your money- 
Plus salt blocks are glued together -toxic - Loose Redmond salt is best.

Muscle Testing on Horse Works!

Before : note swollen belly no hind end muscle atrophied, vet did tons of diagnostic test ,
 decided horse had tumor in gut .Horse was off feed and hay just would not eat.

 I Lorrie Bracaloni was called out as a last ditched effort to help this horse.

I told the owner not to expect anything, give one months time then humanely put down.

So we muscle tested the horse, asked what it needed to become well. She did not want to die, this is what she said.
The Emotion Code Release, of Dr Bradley Nelson, castor oil daily 20 cc in mouth , apple cider vinegar with cayenne pepper, High Trac for the gut, Castor oil smeared on belly with frankincense oil daily.
Free choice Big Sky Minerals .

I commend the horse owner who does not want to be identified but gave me rights to share her horses journey. The horse owner had diligently gave her horse what she needed daily without missing a beat, sometimes not easy to treat your own animals for a long length of time, she loves  this horse.

Below is about 6 weeks later the horse has changed over full of energy and eating all her hay , hay pellets , happy runs freely and on her way back to full recovery, we are still doing the whole protocol till the tumor hopefully dislodges , she still says its there but smaller.
I am amazed as I really thought she would have to be put down , truly a miracle-Even though she still looks skinny you can see her butt has filled in , her gut is not swollen, she is digesting much more soon when the grass comes up she will fill in. More pictures to come.

Nosodes for Equine Health

Nosodes have been used for over a hundred years in homeopathy and have an excellent track record.
All dog diseases can be controlled or eliminated by using Nosodes for distemper, Parvo, Bordatella,
Para−influenza, Leptospirosis, Adenovirys, corona and rabies. In cats the distemper, FIV, FIP,
Leukemia, and other Nosodes are available.

In Horses the flu, Rhino, EWT (Eastern and Western Encephalitis, Tetanus), West Nile, Strangles,
EPM (Equine Protozoal Myelitis) and Herpes (Pneumobort) are available and quite effective.
For the past nine years
 Dr. Wessener has been using Nosodes in his practice as a replacement for
vaccines and the results have surpassed his wildest dreams. Not only are the diseases controlled, as
good or better than the vaccines, but also no reactions, either acute or chronic are seen.

To clarify the foregoing statement, much of Dr. Wessner's practice is counseling people, in person,
and on the phone to all parts of the country, on the proper protocols for their pets and horses for the
effects of over−vaccination and vaccination reactions. He also teaches a week long course on Acute
Homeopathy for Animals.

Many itchy, arthritic, allergic, chronically infected ears and many other canine problems have their
roots in over vaccination. In horses, over vaccination, over use of anti−biotics, chemical fly sprays and
wormers cause many horses to succumb to EPM, Herpes, Uveitis, and autoimmune diseases not seen
50 years ago before this became a "common" practice.

There has also become an increase in the number of "itchy" horses that have been subjected to the
over use of vaccines and the over use of chemicals, including wormers (monthly paste and daily) and
fly sprays. With all the over−vaccinations, worming and strong chemical fly sprays it also makes them
unable to recover from or over−come laminitis and founder.

Commercial Horse Feeds GMO Info

The Disadvantages of Commercial Processed Feed

Since 1997 Genetically engineered (GE) and Genetically modified Organisms (GMO) corn and soy have been in commercial equine feed.

While the scientific community continues to debate on the safety of GE and GMO food, one undeniable consequence is already occurring: the increased amount of pesticides and herbicides used to grow GMO and GE crops. While some of these GE and GMO crops have a herbicide tolerant gene inserted in them, the result has been that the weeds for which the farmers are spraying, are simply becoming more herbicide resistant; resulting in an increase in herbicide and pesticide use.

GM crops also accelerate the erosion of seed diversity and intensify existing soil erosion problems.
Feed formulas that use corn and or soy (and are not marked as GE Free or GMO Free) do not help us move to a greener more eco-friendly environment.

In the US most of our grains (corn, soy, oats, wheat) are funneled into commercial channels for processing -- unlike countries like Canada and some of the EU nations, who rely more on a system of local feedmills or the grains are sold direct from the farm to other farmers for livestock feed. The advantage of a local feedmill/farmer arrangement is quality of grains rather than quantity, and the reduction in fossil fuel consumption for long distance shipping of grains to processors.

Grains are sorted at processing plants and graded. Superior graded grains go to human consumption. Lower graded grains go to animal consumption. By- products of the processing (soy hulls, wheat middlings for instance) become inexpensive fillers for horse feed. Because the grains for animals are nutritionally lower than the human graded grains, feed companies must add synthetic additives to provide nutrients. These synthetic additives (including vitamins) are made from coal tar derivatives, petroleum extracts, acetone, formaldehyde, and irradiated cattle brains (vitamin D).

The processing of the grains themselves can expose the grains to temperatures exceeding 450 degrees. Enzymes and other nutrients can't survive in temperatures exceeding 145 degrees.

Sugar in the form of molasses is often added not only as a binder, but for palatability. Molasses is made from sugar cane and sulfur dioxide is used during the processing to lighten up the color of the molasses or help extend its shelf life. Sulfur dioxide is also used to help with the processing of sugar cane when the cane has been harvested at an early stage. Sulfur dioxide is a primary component of acid raid and is a pollutant of enormous concern to environmental scientists.

Corn syrups are also used as sweeteners in commercial horse feeds. High fructose corn syrup can contain as much as 80% fructose and only 20% glucose. In fruit the ratio is usually 50% glucose and 50% fructose. Fruit contains fiber which slows down the metabolism of fructose and other sugars. But unlike the fructose in fruit, fructose in High Fructose Corn Syrup is absorbed very quickly.

Commercial feed companies rely on further processing after the grains are mixed with the sweetners, additives, and preservatives to produce the pellets or extruded or texturized feeds. The further processing of what originated as food now becomes a food product.

This is why I only feed Standlee hay pellets and local cracked corn , whole oats when needed and of course Big Sky minerals,.

Lately I have been seeing more and more horse refuse commercial feeds think they know something we don't?
