I've been a riding instructor/horse trainer for 30+ years and in my time in this profession, I've seen numerous conditions that can be healed through proper nutrition and correct mineral vitamin supplementation. I've owned a lesson pony for 15 years who had chronic thrush, since putting him and all my others on this wonderful mineral supplement, the thrush has vanished and their coats are all a deep rich color- even in the summer. NO sun bleaching as it is commonly referred to. The coat does not "bleach" from summer sun, it takes on the washed out appearance due to a copper deficiency. The copper will keep their coats the proper color and will cause them to grow healthy manes and tails. I've had horses board here that had skimpy rat tails, when they came and after getting on the mineral, would start growing like wildfire. It also promotes good hoof health and prevents wood chewing the recipe is as follows:
1# copper sulfate
1# seaweed meal
5.25# Dolomite Lime
The dolomite, copper and seaweed meal can be had from a co. called Kelp4less.com sulfur I get on ebay at 10# a whack. if you buy more you get a better price. All in all it costs me about 15 cents an ounce to make it, and it is completely balanced. I also add 2-3 # of loose stock salt, and they clean it up. I also feed 2 oz of diatomaceous earth for parasite control, no need for chemical wormers.
I have been reading a lot about HP and am now considering treating my 22 year old mare, who suffers from COPD, with HP.
She has had laboured breathing for the last year and a half, first seasonal, in the summer and now, since I lost my grazing and she has to be more confined to a wood chip walkout area and a only a few hours grazing, her breathing is getting worse and she suffers from spasmodic coughing fits.
I do keep her surroundings as dust and mould free as possible and her hay soaked, but she does do a lot better when out on grass.
My question is: how much do I dilute 3% HP (that's all I can get) for a horse and what is the best way to give it to her I.e. nebulizer, oral spray, in drinking water or does it not matter? What would the dosage be? She is a 14hh Dales pony so would probably way around 450 kg.
Any advise would be greatly appreciated as I can't leave her to get worse and the vet can only give her Ventipulmin which is not ideal long term.
Re: Question About Treating Horses with Hydrogen Peroxide: How much .5% would you put in the water? Or would you make the 2 water itself a .5%. I have 35% food grade hydrogen. Making their water .5% h2o2 would be a 70:1 ratio. So I'd add 242.8 cc to 17 liters... is this correct? I have a horse with cancer that needs treatment ASAP. Any direction is helpful :) if I'm not supposed to make the water .5% then how much of the .5% in their water should I use?
i was looking for a natural wormer for my horses. I use the manure for compost
In UK eventing horses must have a flu vaccine every six months. I am told that in USA a nosode is acceptable. In view of groing evidence of link between vaccines and Cushings I would very much like information about this, is the info correct and which governing body should I contact?
Easy Stop Wood Chewing:
Make manure tea (half bucket manure, fillto top with water. Paint all protruding parts of stall. The horse WILL NOT chew it. Six months later, it may wear off, so if horse begins to chew again, make new manure tea and paint again. Use ordinary paintbrush.
