Spring and Spring Equinox!

 

Have you felt it?  There is a stirring within the human spirit right now as I write this newsletter, as though spring has begun earlier than usual this new year. There seems to be an inner quickening, an anticipation for the change that is coming, the growth beginning,  which is manifesting within the lives of us all as we approach the Spring Equinox, where Day and Night are of Equal length, and then days legenthing.

 

Even though winter may still have a foot hold on some of the planet, for many there are plans for growth and change going on within the spirit of all of us, can you feel it?

 

The element of hope is renewed within each of us and new possibilities begin to "bud" bringing the promises of new beginnings and change as we watch the trees blossom which will produce the fruits of summer, and the bulbs break through the hard winter ground to give us the beauty in their flowers.

 

The birds start to return and the butterflies appear as if out of no where, the beautiful pink blossoms of the peache trees are prevelant around here.  Everything feels freshly new, a new beginning, new babies in the fields, new foals romping with their moms, I love Spring! 

 

I love the renewal of life itself during this time of year!

 

The Spring Equinox this year is early, it will be on March 19th which is when day and night are of equal length, followed by a New Moon on March 22nd (my son's birthday) and Easter on April the 8th

 

 

 

 

 

Daylight Savings Time, Whooo Hoooo

Starting Sunday March 11th, which is Cheyanne's birthday, we have more daylight to spend with our horses, I so look forward to this time of year!

 

 

 

 

Seven Supplement Myths Busted ---

I will be providing one myth each news letter until we have covered them all!

 

Myth 1  Healthy horses don't need supplements-

 

False - domestic horsekeeping puts horses under stress which disrupts the horse's digestive health, immunity and well-being. The goal is to have them thriving and in balance.  They need to be supplemented especially if on hay because most is barn stored and looses some of its vitamins along the way.  They also need probiotics to keep their guts healthy!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Unte Prayer

 

 

Earth,

 

Teach Me Earth teach me quiet ~ as the grasses are still with new light.

Earth teach me suffering ~ as old stones suffer with memory.

Earth teach me humility ~ as blossoms are humble with beginning.

Earth teach me caring ~ as mothers nurture their young.

Earth teach me courage ~ as the tree that stands alone.

Earth teach me limitation ~ as the ant that crawls on the ground. Earth teach me freedom ~ as the eagle that soars in the sky.

Earth teach me acceptance ~ as the leaves that die each fall.

Earth teach me renewal ~ as the seed that rises in the spring.

Earth teach me to forget myself ~ as melted snow forgets its life. Earth teach me to remember kindness ~ as dry fields weep with rain.

An Ute Prayer

Educate Before You Vaccinate Your Horses, Cats and Dogs One More Time ----

 

How often do you vaccinate your horses?  Did you know they do not need yearly vaccines, that vaccines can last for years and years?  Did you know that this time of year more laminitis and health problems occur in our horses due to their Spring vaccinations  and chemical worming?  This is the time of year is  a bit heart breaking for me, as my business grows trying to help people who have caused laminitis and founder in the horses they love, thinking they are doing the right thing by vaccinating yearly or in some cases twice yearly, and chemically worming on the same day or in the same week.... this is not the reason I want my business to grow, I want it to grow because we help educate owner's in keeping their horses, cats and dogs to stay healthy, how about doing a fecal test/count before you decide to chemically worm your horses?  How about not doing a 5 way vaccine on your horses, and maybe do a blood titer to see if he/she even needs any vaccines at all?  Did you know that horses do not need tetnus every year? 

 

"Our dogs are in the midst of an epidemic. It’s not an epidemic of viral disease, but of chronic ill health. They’re besieged with itchy, pus-laden, scabby skin; vomit and diarrhoea are the norm. One in every hundred dogs suffers from epilepsy, and an even higher number lives with painful arthritis. Allergies are also reaching epidemic proportions: dogs are becoming allergic to life.

 

According to Dr Jean W Dodds, an eminent vet and researcher, both allergic and autoimmune diseases have been rising since the introduction of modified live virus vaccines. Autoimmune diseases are where the body attacks self; they include cancer, leukaemia, thyroid disease, Addisons, Grave’s disease, autoimmune haemolytic anaemia, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, lupus, thrombocytopenia, organ failure, skin inflammations, and more.

 

We also seem to have a tremendous number of dogs with behavioural problems, largely due to over-vaccination and processed pet food. Vaccines are known to cause inflammation of the brain, as well as lesions throughout the brain and central nervous system. The medical term for this is ‘encephalitis’, and vaccine’s role is acknowledged in the Merck Manual. Merck is a vaccine manufacturer."  From Dogs Naturally Magazine.

 

Our cats are also at risk and are getting sicker and sicker, living shorter and shorter lives, with more and more cancers from the overvaccinations recommended by your local vets.  Most of the cancers in cats are vaccine related, and some are appearing at the site of the vaccines. 

 

I only vaccinate my dogs for their series of puppy vaccines, so they are covered and one time as an adult for rabies, that is it.  My dogs are on a primairly raw food diet, and the cats because of the numbers get some raw, canned and some dry kibble. 

 

You can do blood titers to find out what your pets levels are of the various vaccines, and/or you can use homeopathic Nosodes to protect your pets.  If your vet insists on yearly vaccines then find another vet.  The vets I use understand the risks and know that I am very conservative with giving vaccines and they try to keep up with the latest research, some of which you can find in the link below at the rabies challenge fund.
