Many new products to serve the NHC community! January 31 2015
I'll try to visit this blog once a week to describe products and information now available on my website.
Paddock Paradise: A Guide to Natural Horse Boarding continues to hold its own, 10 years since I wrote the book. It's also in different languages, with a new translation in Dutch in the works, and another in Spanish that is being negotiated. If you're new to NHC (natural horse care), PP might be a good place to start.
The Healing Angle: Nature's Gateway to the Healing Field is a bit advanced for newcomers, but if you can work your way to it -- especially if you are a trimmer -- it will be worth your time and effort. It's about the "mysterious" healing field that mediates the remarkable growth patterns that I discovered in wild horse hooves and that I apply to my work with domestic horses. The first half gives the background and science, the second half is about applying the healing field to a horse with Navicular Syndrome. It's a "works in progress" addition to my library, so I'll return to it in the future to add new information.
If you are a trimmer, or a horse owner who does their own trimming, check out the tools and equipment. These are the things that I use today as a professional practitioner. You won't find them all in a farrier supply house because they are designed to facilitate the "natural trim", not horseshoeing.
If you want to learn, then come in for a clinic. Or register for a consultation if your having problems and you want my input. My colleague Jill Willis also provides consultations on "diet", and believe me, her knowledge stands at the very cutting edge of what's good and natural for horses.
Okay, that's it for now. It's back to the ranch up in the nearby coastal mountains where we run the AANHCP Field Headquarters and Paddock Paradise. Worth a tour if you want to see the real thing (NHC) in action.
See you soon!
