The Buddy Story
By Fraea Bolding
My horse, Buddy, is a 17-year-old Dutch
Warmblood whom I have owned for two years. He lives happily with
his herd over acres of pasture, forgetful of his past and painful
experiences with severe lameness.
Feed Facts and Fancies
Why Probiotics and Digestive Enzymes are Important
Feed Additives for Your Horse
By Jessica Lynn
There is a microbial balance that needs to be maintained throughout
the horse's digestive tract, and though horses in the wild may naturally
eat what is needed and avoid toxins, horses in domestic situations
may not. Feeding live beneficial bacteria and digestive enzymes
can help to maintain or create microbial balance.
Natural Horse Dentistry - What is the Point?
Your Horse Wishes YOU KNEW…
By Spencer LaFlure
Like the old way of training and riding horses, man had a mold and
the horse was broke to fit that mold. In today’s world of
horse dentistry people performing “dentistry” are also
using the mold they were taught and making it fit all horses. I
believe that if we can train naturally, we can do dentistry naturally
Chronic Disease and Your Cat
By Shawn Messonnier, DVM
Periodontal disease, kidney disease, cardiomyopathy,
and hyperthyroidism are some of the most common problems in cats
today. Nutrition, natural therapies, and conventional medicine can
all help cats with these conditions.
Bran Manor Equine Rescue is a 501(c)(3) organization
that offers food, shelter, medical care, re-training and above all
LOVE to those horses in need. Just 15 days before this picture was
taken, Mama Holli, a registered paint mare, found her way to BMER&P.
Severely underweight, her back legs scalded from urine burns that
went untreated, Mama Holli delivered a very handsome but sickly
little foal, Afortunado. Today, both are healthy and happy and have
been adopted together by a wonderful family who realizes the true
meaning of RESCUE!
