    My Arabian mare,El Barakee arrived little over a month ago in Europe. After more than a year of no training or competing and an exhausting export process from South Africa, she arrived safe and sound. We were very worried how she would cope and adjust to the extreme changes from the Southern Hemisphere to the Northern Hemisphere. It is not just the long traveling and constant change of staff taking care of her along the way, but also the food & climate changes that was a worrying factor.

    With her arrival in the Netherlands, we immediately started her on The Herbal Horse Immune mix (to boost her tired and exhausted body against the extreme temperature changes) & The Digestive mix (to aid her digestive system with the change in food). She has settled in very well & is back in training.

    Thank you to the amazing service & advice we receive from Beryl Shuttleworth & The Herbal Horse Team.

    Hi there, I have a standardbred, ex pacer 9yrs old gelding has been off the track for a few months now. He is prone to the odd attack of colic if he eats the wrong grass/weeds & drinks cold water too fast, the first time almost a year ago I thought he was dead in his paddock, lying there with his mouth open, tongue hanging out & eyes open but no body home. I rang the vet straight away as I couldnt get him up, we eventually got him up & the vet had to sedate him to do a whole lot of tests, apparantly he had poisoned himself on eating deadly nightshade. I am liking the sound of this product….BUT…does it prevent colic from happening or does it only work when he is having colic, also can he be on it long term

      Angie, yes, it will help digestion. It does this in two ways:
      1. the prebiotic helps to keep the ratio of good to bad bacteria favourable
      2. the herbs are all known to have a soothing effect on the stomach and facilitate good digestion.

      But, of course, it won’t help if he eats poisonous plants again. It won’t help to any great extent when the colic has already started – then you need a vet. But it does help to prevent the colic starting in the first place. And yes, he can be on it long term.

      I hope this helps….?

    I have to say as I explained before I was battling to put weight on this particular horse. Well he has been in the same training schedule but have increased his training . He has definitely picked up weight he is moving more freely. Most importantly he has filled up.
    As always I am very happy with the results I have achieved.
    What I love about this particular supplement, it’s a combination for overall good health in the horse.

    The Digestion Mix for horses has made a big difference to my miniature horses where they used to get little niggly gas XXXX or XXXX. I keep all my horses (big and small) on it as well as the donkeys.

    I HAVE to tell you this!

    We had a bit of a scare the last few weeks with Woody.
    About two Mondays ago he decided at dinner time that he was not going to eat his food. He however had finished his lucerne and was picking at his teff. I took him out for a walk and he happily munched green grass. Tummy appeared to be working, rather noisy infact, and his temperature and attitude were normal. So we couldn’t figure out his issue. Dinner went uneaten, as did Tuesday breakfast and Tuesday lunch. He must have gotten quite fed up with Kerry, my stable manager, as she was taking his temperature every two hours!

    Tuesday afternoon I picked up a phosamine jab from the vet, as he thought that might stimulate his appetite. And dinner time he picked at his food. And slowly by Wednesday night he was eating again.

    Last Monday he looked at his food funny again, but in the end did eat.

    I chatted to quite a few folks trying to work out what was going on with him. Apart from the not eating he was fine in all respects.Then my friend suggested ulcers.

    And it hit me. On the Friday before it all started I ran out of Digestive, and for the week before had only been giving half dose trying to stretch it.
    So by the Monday it must have been well out of his system.

    If you remember I put him on it as a precaution. When he was so spooky after being sore. The theory being settled tummy equals a settled mind. And he did settle down. And the weekend before the first hunger strike he was a total fruit loop.. pulled away from the groom coming in from the paddock, spooked all over the place with me.

    So I am going to assume that the horse has ulcers.
    And per my friend, I should be grateful that he didn’t colic.

    So once again, Herbal horse to the rescue!!
    How would my horses cope without you?

    I picked up my Digestion mix on Wednesday this week, and then double dosed him for three nights. He is back on normal dose from tonight.
    And so far he is back to licking out his bowl with gusto!

    Raju, the horse we got the digestion mix for showed a wonderful response to one scoop/ day. His bloatedness improved remarkably and seems that he is far more comfortable now, so much so that we have been able to start riding him. Thank you so very much. Obviously the product came to an end and he hasn’t really started to bloat again, so it has definitely had a lasting effect. Thank you for the wonderful product!
