FREE STUFF!

Posted on

Today I am compelled to tell y’all about a great, no – an AWESOME Hoof treatment that, when used daily, or even with every trim, will help keep all those nasty hoof-eating-critters at bay.

Now, being a hoofcare professional for many years I’ve seen A LOT … a lot of the usual run-of-the-mill stuff and a lot of plain, simple weird stuff that goes on in and on equine hooves.  Suffice to say, I’ve pretty much seen it all.  (AND I’m not saying that ‘cause I want to see any more!  I don’t. Nope. I certainly do NOT want to see any more weird horse hoof stuff.  I’ve seen enough.)

Some traditional treatments don’t always carry the weight they’re purported to and, as such, I’ve looked to alternative as well as complementary substances to either give the traditionals a push in the right direction or use instead of the traditional meds.

Now I’m not saying that any one is better than the other. I believe there is a balance to health and wellness care for our equine partners. But I am going to share with you a fantastic ‘recipe’ for a hoof-spray that will knock your socks off! 

First a wee introduction to you about essential oils.  They are MUCH more than just the ‘smell-good’ air-freshener sprays that you might find in your home care centers.  They are powerful substances that come from “Nature”, itself. In fact, many of our pharmaceuticals are derived from essential oils or, at least, the very plants and minerals from which the oils are produced.  Essential oils go back thousands of years and their beneficial properties have been noted throughout time.

That’s how powerful they are.

 

100% pure, unadulterated oils have the capabilities to pass the blood-brain barrier and reach down and break through cell membranes to alter the cells that might be causing issues within the body, rendering them incapable of reproduction.

See?  This is powerful stuff!  

And that’s just the tip of it all … there’s much more about essential oils but I’ll leave that for another time and place.  Of course, if you want to learn more about them you can always simply ask. You know where to find me via email  gwen.santagate@gmail.com

Back to hooves and ‘stuff’ … OK,  so here’s a scenario.  You’re picking out, cleaning out your horse’s hooves and notice this black, tarry gunk coming out of the collateral grooves with your hoof pick. And it STINKS to high heaven! 

Well, my Friend, you’ve just dug into a bacterial situation that is formally called, Fusobacterium necrophorum. Commonly known as “Thrush”.  If you’ve had horses for a long enough time I’m sure you know all about it.  It’s just plain nasty.

Well, as I promised, here is a spray recipe that you can use every day for stubborn cases or you can use once a month after trimming simply as a preventative … this stuff is awesome!   I promise!

To make sure you get 100% PURE, GRAS, Therapeutic Essential Oils, get in touch with me and I’ll lead the way.

    My original barefoot farrier suggested I get a professional spray bottle and add a 32 oz bottle of Bragg’s Organic Apple Cider Vinegar and a 1 fl oz bottle of Jason Tea Tree skin oil (says Pure Australian Melaleuca Alternifolia) shake and spray on the frog and soles. It does work. Jason Tea Tree oil is for external use only. I do have access to Young Living oils which are safe for ingesting but are considerably more expensive. What do you think of this remedy and is the use of Jason Tea Tree oil acceptable?

    Hi Dee dee. i use a 4 oz bottle. doesn’t take much to be effective. make sure the hooves are clean, dry and all the little flaps of the frog are cleaned up and the hooves are in a good trim. that, in itself, will go a long way to help with the situation.

    Anyone can use any brand of essential oil desired. No push! :) Just want to make sure that any brand is 100% PURE oils with no adulterants or additives or substitutions, etc. There are a good number of companies ‘out there’ who make organic, 100% oils. Yes, I work with a specific company but that does not mean that I’m going to ‘push’ anyone. I don’t push. Everyone has his/her own choices. :)

    It’s extreme FRUSTRATING WHEN SMACK DAB IN THE MIDDLE OF YOUR “FREE” RECIPE YOU INCLUDE A COMPANY/FRANCHISE BLEND THAT PUTS THOSE OF US WHO SOURCE DIFFERENT MARKETS FOR THE BEST OILS STRAIGHT INTO A WALL…..SO FRUSTRATING!!!

    IT DRIVES ME CRAZY THAT SMACK DAB IN THE MIDDLE OF YOUR “FREE RECIPE” YOU USE A TRADEMARKED OR COMPANY BLEND. THAT puts THOSE OF US WHO SHOP DIFFERENT PROVIDERS FOR DIFFERENT OILS STRAIGHT INTO A BRICK WALL. FRUSTRATING TO SAY THE LEAST.

    What size bottle do you use for this receipt since it said to fill to top with water? I have moved from tn to fl and have never had problems with thrush and my horses were in mud several months out of the year with the WINTERs. Now here in Florida two out of my three horses are having a problem and it’s dry here, nothing seems to be working. :-(
