Herbal Horsekeeping

Herbal Horsekeeping

In the past, when horses roamed free, they instinctively maintained their health by seeking out and consuming a variety of grasses, grains, herbs, and mineral-salt deposits at specific times of the year or for specific physical needs. The lives of our modern horses are very different - they are often confined, their exercise usually consists of structured workouts for specific sports, and they are fed processed food and medicated with pharmaceutical chemicals. In an effort to live healthier, more natural lives, many people are returning to more traditional health-care methods for themselves, and now, we can do our horses the same favour. "Herbal Horsekeeping" introduces the reader to the ins-and-outs of one of the oldest and most effective medical methods. Topics covered include: understanding, growing, and preparing herbs; herbs for your horse's general health, and for the performance and breeding horse; and treatments for specific conditions and basic recipes. Included is a list of specific herbs, their identifying characteristics, and their individual actions.

Natural Healing for Horses

More and more horse owners are turning to alternative therapies to enhance the health and well-being of their equine companions. Many believe - as Jenny Morgan does - that horses kept in a healthy, all-natural environment have fewer health problems. Thus, this essential reference for horse owners begins with preventive care. Natural Healing for Horses teaches how to know a horse thoroughly, from forelock to fetlock; understand a horse's moods and immediately recognize the slightest change in appearance or behavior; build a stabling system that has proper space, drainage, and safety; select the ideal pasture location; and develop affordable and natural routines for exercising, feeding, watering, and grooming horses kept in a stable or at pasture. The second section of this book addresses specific health issues and suggested therapies, including herbal and homeopathic treatments, chiropractic, acupuncture, massage, and aromatherapy, as well as standard veterinary treatments. Whatever the need, Morgan provides all the information necessary to choose the right natural treatment to improve a horse's general well-being or solve particular health problems.
