Nutrigood Treats from Manna Pro- Healthy never tasted so good

It’s so much fun to feed your horse treats!

Manna 1Treating your horse shows them love and appreciation, rewards good behavior, and can be used to teach new skills.

So, treat away, but there are some basic do’s you’ll want to keep in mind to ensure healthy, happy treating.

Do make sure the treats are good for your horse.

Treats with added health benefits are not only a great reward, but they also stimulate their overall health.

Manna 2Nutrigood Low-Sugar Snax from Manna Pro are irresistible and all-natural, giving you the peace of mind that your horse isn't getting extra sugar and starch he may not need.

Do feed the right amount of treats.

You don’t want to give so many treats that you upset your horse’s digestive system or teach them bad habits.

After all, your time together is more than simply treat time.

Make sure to spend bonding time with your horse and use treats to reward specific behaviors.

Manna 3Do make certain your horse learns good behaviors by taking the treat only when it is offered.

A treat should only be given when the horse's behavior warrants it.

This means not just handing over the treat, but making sure that they are respectful and not pushy.

Treats are a wonderful way to bond with your horse, but be sure to stay in charge of the treating behavior.

Breed those good treating habits and treating will be a treat for both of you.

Ecovet Fly Spray Outperforms the Competition

To win the battle against flies and other pests, more and more horse owners are consistently reaching for Ecovet, a totally different type of fly spray.

eco vet 1A 2019 research study published in the Journal of Economic Entomology confirms Ecovet's standout success against flies: In head-to-head comparisons with other fly spray products, the researchers found that Ecovet is the most effective at inhibiting flies and Ecovet lasts the longest.

In fact, Ecovet was the only repellent in the study that inhibited flies for the full duration of the two-day trial.

The study compared a wide range of commercially available repellents, including those marketed as natural and those with synthetic pyrethroids as active ingredients. More:

Developed, tested, endorsed and owned by veterinarians, Ecovet does not contain toxic pesticides such as pyrethroids, and it is not an essential oil product, which can offer limited effectiveness.

eco vet 2Instead, Ecovet's formulation is 5 percent each of three food-grade fatty acids, 84 percent volatile silicone oil and 1 percent fragrance.

Ecovet founder Dr. Tim John, a veterinarian, explains how the fly spray works so well.

"After Ecovet is applied, the fatty acids evaporate and create a vapor barrier around the horse. This confuses and overwhelms an insect's normal directional ability — basically its 'GPS.' Thanks to this Ecovet barrier, the insect simply can't locate the horse as its next victim."

eco vet 3An additional benefit of Ecovet is that it helps prevent insect-related skin sensitivity by stopping insects from landing on the horse in the first place.

"If insects don't land, they don't bite. And if a horse isn't bitten, there's less chance for insect-related skin reactions or hypersensitivity, aka the dreaded sweet itch," notes Dr. John.

Ecovet not only repels but also kills flies, mosquitoes, ticks and no-see-ums.

Horse owners can find out why Ecovet is a real alternative to toxic pesticides at

If Flies Are Bugging Your Horses, Then Bug’em Back with Organic Cowboy!

Organic Cowboy™Fly Parasites are the little guys that kill flies.

Organic Cowboy 1They comprise the cornerstone of an integrated fly control program that can offer you season-long control for your equine facility or stable.

Fly parasites are a time-tested tool to tackle flies before they become adult pests that can spread disease and trouble your horses.

They are harmless, gnat-sized parasitoids that are the natural enemy of flies.

thumbnail fly parasiteFly parasite depositing egg in a fly pupa. The female fly parasite deposits her eggs exclusively in fly pupae, destroying the immobilized fly in its pupal stage long before it becomes an adult pest.

Starting at the onset of fly control season you should release your fly parasites in primary fly breeding habitats.

Typically at horse stables, those areas include manure build-up along fence lines and feeders, messy areas in pastures or corrals and where manure is stored for later removal.

When you find your primary fly breeding habitats simply peel open the pack and shake the fly parasites out and they’ll do the rest of the work.

Organic Cowboy 3Organic Cowboy’s proven blend of fly parasites includes Spalangia cameroni, Muscidifurax zaraptor, and Muscidifurax raptorellus.

Give the Organic Cowboy a call at 877-499-9190 or visit us at to learn more about the little guys that kill flies.

6 Reasons to Feed from the Ground in a Natural Grazing Position

1-Less strain on the skeletal system and soft tissue because a horse is designed to eat with the head down.

Hay Illow 12-Natural Wear of Teeth & More: A natural grazing position allows the mandible (jaw bone) to come down and forward in the atlantoaxial and temporomandibular joints. This enables the mandible to move up and down, side to side, forward and back without any restriction - facilitating natural wear of teeth along with optimum mastication and reduction of particle size.

3-Better Respiratory Health: Enables nasal passages to drain effectively thereby minimizing the inhalation of dust and particles.

Hay Pillow 24-Relaxed Mental & Emotional State: A horse’s emotional state is reflected in body position and posture. If we require a horse to eat with their head elevated, we are encouraging an alert and tense mental state.

5-Keeps Hay & Dust Out of Eyes: Eliminates the risk of hay and dust falling into your horse's eyes.

6-Unobstructed Peripheral Vision: The Standard Hay Pillows and Mini Hay Pillows® do not impair the horse's peripheral vision. If impaired, this can create tension psychologically. Horses are prey animals and depend on sight and sound to detect predators.

All Animals Love Reiki by Ginny Jenkins

In the past 20 years that I have been practicing Reiki as a Reiki Master, and have never met an animal who did not either enjoy or benefit a great deal from this holistic approach of healing.

Ginnys natural 1Ginny JenkinsReiki is a very gentle, non invasive healing method that uses Universal Life Force Energy to provide healing, comfort and support to your pet.

Sessions for pets are generally much more direct and productive in a short amount of time due to the animal’s extreme sensitivity.

Ginnys natural 2They also have no hidden agendas and are very receptive to this unequaled heart to heart energy.

I’ve worked on Calves to Cockatoos, but mostly with cats and dogs, and a few horses.

Sessions help to release negative energy and help heal.

Often it helps with pet behavioral issues and challenges.

thumbnailOther animals might have physical injuries, and Reiki can help the animal heal more quickly than they might have done on their own due to the deep relaxation and sense of well being attributed to Reiki.

Some of the benefits of using Reiki Healing for animals would be * Calms nervousness and anxiety, * Reduces Stress, * Supports overall health and well being, * Heals emotional traumas such as abuse, loss, and neglect, and can aid in transition at end of life.

Healing sessions generally last 20 – 30 minutes.

Reiki training for adults usually takes 3 – 4 hours in one day.
