Horses, as herbivores, are guided by and vibrate to the natural intelligence of plant life. The wisdom of selection for survival is an ever-present and potent factor in the choice a horse makes in it's diet. Those choices determine it's rate of growth, repair, performance, attitude, life span, and most importantly, how it's immune system functions. Horses have existed and evolved on plant life for over 60 million years. Herbs are essential to the achievement of perfect equine health.
Horses standing in enclosed areas for long periods of time without the relief of eating on the move (as in the wild) are prone to digestive problems (colic), edema (water retention), congestive lung conditions, infections, allergies, nervousness and mental anxiety. Noise, separation, toxic chemicals, sprayed and processed feed, drugs, social urges, fear and boredom all contribute to glandular wear and tear. This is especially true when the horse cannot respond to it's flight urge and move away. This creates a toxic load of excess hormones that produce fatigue and illness. Poor pasture and soils contribute to further depletion.
Horses hunger for enzymes, minerals and vitamins found in the life-giving properties of herbs. Herbs help to restore and relieve many of these debilitating stressors. Herbs for herbivores are perfect, functional cell identified foods which provide easy digestion and assimilation for optimum healing and support.
