Don't just repel ticks, kill them with TNT-Tick Natural Terminator

Each female tick lays thousands of eggs.

Tick 1Using repellents may help keep them away, but it also allows them to find another host and breed.

TNT-Tick Natural Terminator has been used safely for decades to reduce the number of ticks in the environment.

It will limit the amount number of ticks that crawl onto you or your pet because they do not like the “feel” of it.

TNT is totally natural, blended with the purest active ingredients we can find, all of which are sourced in the USA.

Tick 2TNT is extremely safe for you and your horses and other pets.

It contains no chemicals so can be used in addition to repellent sprays if they’re necessary.

TNT is nontoxic to animals including frogs, birds, and wildlife.

TNT-Tick Natural Terminator controls ear gnats.

It can also be dusted around your house to kill ticks, ants, and other crawling pests, without harm to you, family or pets.

TNT was invented by trail riders and after decades of use, we cannot find a tick on our properties.


Tick 3We continue to test TNT each year, acquiring ticks of various stages from our veterinarians, or picking them off if we see any after a trail ride. We maintain a two hour kill rate for adult ticks.

Unlike chemical kills, the ticks do not build up resistance to TNT. It’s great for the tick stages you cannot see to remove.

Sustenance Herbs, dedicated to unsurpassed quality

sustenanceOver 13 years ago, Joyce Belcher decided it was high time to turn her passion for holistic health into a business.

Sustenance herbsShe expanded her studies to focus on herbs, and launched Herbs for Life, Inc. in 2008 and worked with several holistic and integrative veterinarians, establishing custom formulas creating a unique line of organic pet supplements as well as a line of herbal medicinals, Joyce’s new company quickly began to thrive…and so did her customers

From the start, Herbs for Life, Inc has been dedicated to unsurpassed quality.

Each one of their products is made using 100% non-GMO, certified organic and/or wild harvested ingredients, and no chemicals are added or used, ever, in the manufacturing process.

The company prides themselves on safety and efficacy and plans to continue growing without losing focus of her mission.

Sustenance 3“Our mission and passion is and has always been to help pets get healthy and stay healthy as nature intended,” she says. Whether an animal needs a daily supplement to balance their immune system or a botanical medicinal to address a more serious issue.

Her Detox Liver Cleanse, for instance, has been a game changer for the health of many animals.

It works to remove heavy metals, restore normal healthy function of the eliminatory organs (Liver, kidneys, lymphatic system, blood and neurological systems) and, like all her products, contains NO inactive ingredients.

Joyce felt the name of her supplement line, Pet Wellness Blends, didn’t fully encompass the values she so strongly upholds.

Sustenance 2So what did she do?

She rebranded!

This product line can now be found under the name “Sustenance Herbs”, a title that better reflects its ability to support and maintain health.

“Sustenance refers to something that is consumed that sustains life or health,” says Joyce. “And the happiness that pet owners have when their dog, cat or horse is healthy, happy and feeling great is what keeps me going!”

Slow feed solutions for farm and zoo animals - goats, sheep, alpacas and more from Hay Pillow

Although Hay Pillow® slow feed bags were designed initially for horses, mules and donkeys, our customers quickly found that farm and zoo animals loved eating from them - and enjoyed the same physical and mental benefits.

Hay pillow 1Plus, wasting less hay saves money - and that benefits everyone.

Foraging by Design - Browsers Vs. Grazers

Because herbivores are prey animals, sight is one of their main forms of defense.

Considering they are designed to forage for 16 to 20 hours a day, their head, neck and eye placement is designed to maximize their vision while foraging to detect predators.

Browsers - such as goats, alpacas, llamas and camels - are designed to primarily forage on leaves, buds and twigs from shrubs, bushes or trees.

hay pillow 2Therefore, their eyes are positioned centered and more upright on their head with their neck naturally in a more upright position.

Grazing animals - such as sheep, horses, donkeys, mules and zebras - are designed to primarily forage on grasses and vegetation in close proximity to the ground.

Their eyes are positioned high on the sides of the head with a lower natural neck position.

Although browsers graze and grazers browse, always consider your animal's natural design when choosing a slow feeder.

hay pillw 3By providing free-choice forage, you will have a healthier, more content herd with the bonus of no longer being committed to multiple feedings day and night!

WHITE HALL, Md.--The Mill invites you to an educational forage field walk on Tuesday, June 28, 2022, at 5:00 pm. The rain date will be Thursday, June 30th.

The event will be held at Clear Meadow Farm, 3116 Troyer Rd, White Hall, MD 21161.

There are 15 varieties of forages including 4 varieties of orchardgrass, 3 of timothy, 3 pasture blends, Grasshancer 300 (emergency forage extender), 2 types of fescue, Fojtan festulolium, and Kentucky Bluegrass plots. The plot was established in 2018. The first harvest of 2022 was the 2nd week of May. There is adequate regrowth to see differences in recovery and persistency between the varieties.

There are no short-term forecasts of feed or fuel price easing and supply chain issues remain a concern.

The best strategy to keep purchased feed costs in check is to maximize nutritional quality and yields from forage stands.

Now is the time to plan for pasture renovations.

Fall is the best time to seed since soil temperatures are ideal for rapid germination and cool evenings help retain soil moisture for shallow-root seedlings.

Additionally, there is less competition from annual weeds which allows for a thicker stand compared to spring seeding.

September to mid-October is an ideal time to overseed pasture or hay fields.

Soil sampling should be performed now to balance soil pH and know what nutrients will be needed for a new seeding or to boost fall forages and prepare stands to overwinter.
