We offer 2 sizes: A 21 oz. that will last 21 days and a 60 oz. that will last 60 days for approx. 1000 lb. horse. We find that most horses really like the herb blend and eat it readily. Topdressing your horses’ grain is an easy way to feed the herbs. If you do not feed grain, your horse will likely eat the herbs just plain.
Horses are herbivores so it is natural for them to seek out and eat herbs which have healing properties in their seeds, flowers, roots, stems or leaves. Most of our horses
do not live in an environment where these natural herbs are available, so we blended 8 herbs to offer a palatable effective supplement.
We have many customers now using our Horse Herb Allergy Blend and they find it very effective for a variety of respiratory allergies as well as skin allergies for their horses. See the knowledge of why we put these 8 natural ingredients together to promote allergy relief.
Red Clover: Red clover is an excellent blood cleanser and it is a wonderful remedy for skin disorders such as sweet itch and dermatitis. Red Clover is fed to help cleanse the blood when a horse has itchy skin and supports a healthy immune system and also acts as an antispasmodic and expectorant which is useful for treating respiratory allergies. Also beneficial if the horse is weak and rundown and needs to regain strength.
Fenugreek: Fenugreek seeds are very nourishing containing vitamins A, B, C, and vitamin E. These seeds function to strengthen the respiratory system, the mucous membranes, and the sinus in cases of upper respiratory infection, sinus issues, or congestion. The seed is anti-inflammatory and promotes conditioning of body, hair coat, and hooves. It is very palatable and helps with picky eaters. Being that Fenugreek is a uterine stimulant it should not be used on pregnant mares, however, after foaling will help with milk production.
Dandelion: Dandelion Leaf is high in vitamins A, B, C, and D, and rich in potassium, sodium, calcium and other minerals, dandelion functions as a tonic by stimulating liver function, bile production, and kidney function. It helps the body clear itself of toxins and is believed to purify the blood. It’s a strong botanical ally when used in rehabilitation or conditioning mixes, especially for horses that undergo the stress of competition. The Dandelion leaves are known as a natural electrolyte and aids in flushing the system of toxins that may contribute to inflammation which makes it ideal for allergies.
Chamomile: Chamomile flowers are anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, analgesic and a natural relaxant. The flowers are high in calcium, magnesium, zinc, iron, potassium, and manganese and help to regulate the parasympathetic nervous system as well as aid in digestion. Chamomile is often used to treat allergic reactions, both externally and internally with its anti-inflammatory properties, and is naturally calming and promotes a healthy digestive tract.
Burdock: Burdock root has a high amino acid profile and is high in minerals. It is naturally antiseptic and is known as the ultimate tissue cleanser. It is very useful to help promote healing skin and tissue, helping the tissues remove any excess toxins, making it ideal for use in chronic inflammatory or infective disorders. Due to its detoxing nature, it is important that burdock should be used alongside an herb such as nettle that helps with the removal of these toxins from the system. Burdock is an excellent digestive aid and has also been used in the treatment of arthritis, blood disorders, liver and kidney function or toxic conditions which result in skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, sores, boils or dry scurfy skin.
Nettle: When cut and dried, nettle loses its sting and becomes a valuable herb and is one of nature’s richest sources of iron, which can often be a mineral lacking in an equine diet. Nettles also contain histamine, serotonin, potassium, silica, vitamins A and C, and a whole host of other minerals. It’s one of the most widely useful plants that help strengthen and support the whole body. Nettles support the immune, respiratory, urinary and reproductive systems, and can help the body fight allergic responses. Additionally, nettles will strengthen hoof and coat health-promoting dapples in the horse’s hair coat.
Garlic: Garlic is known to improve equine respiratory problems and act as a natural fly repellent. It is also beneficial for promoting good gut flora. It also acts as a blood cleansing agent and offers immune system support.
Kelp: The kelp we use is bioavailable and readily utilized and contains trace minerals, micronutrients, and amino acids as well as many natural vitamins. Kelp assists in boosting the immune system, balance hormones and promotes gastrointestinal health. It is a natural source of iodine that helps thyroid and metabolic function and promotes a shiny coat, supple skin, promotes better reproductive performance, purges heavy metals, and assists in more efficient feed utilization.
