Ranch Products and What Makes Earth Song Ranch Different from the
any one month I get numerous calls and emails about horses with special needs, some of
their owner's requesting custom products. Most of
these are people new to Earth Song Ranch. This month has been
no exception, in fact there are more then the usual number of
calls and emails already.
appreciate that owner's of special needs horses, would
love to help them, and Earth Song Ranch products have helped many
with the blends we have developed,
mostly to fill a need for a horse of a friend and family member. Those
blends took hours, weeks and months of research, lots of
expense for ingredients, trial and error to come up with
them. Those blends include CushingsZyme,
and SeniorZyme, as well as the Herbal
Wormer. It has been a labor of love for the most
part and my passion. Even if I wanted to help each and every
horse that came along I can't, it just is not possible.
Earth Song Ranch Herbal Wormer is one of those products that took a
lot of time, money, and also research and working with a holistic
vet to get it right so that all of you who use it for your horses
see the results. It is very costly to manufacturer and believe me
is one that to blend is not the favorite of the warehouse because
of the cayanne makes everyone
sneeze, they have to wear masks when blendng
and packaging, and I pay extra for that one blend to be packaged
due to no one likes to do it, but we do it for the love of what we
do and for the horses who need it!
we are different is that you get a real person with knowledge to
share, which is of value, you get decades of horse nutriton experience in what we do in our
products, most of which we have tested on our own horses or
friends horses, or dogs and cats. I do take your phone
calls, or call back and when I do, we talk about your personal
horse and what the needs may be and how we can help.
getting back to my main point, what I find from many of these new
people, who have the challenged horses, is that they want a
"custom blend", leaving out one herb or another, or
adding one herb or another, and only maybe one pound of whatever
that is, want that blend at the regular
one pound price! Or I get calls from people who want
our nosodes in a higher potency, but they
do not want to pay for the labor to make them custom for them!
be absolutely honest with all of you, I wish I could afford to
spend the amount of time it takes, as well as the cost to blend, or
the separate ingredients and labor to make one pound of product for
just one horse for one owner, who has never been a customer, when
several hundreds of owner's, who use the products that we
blend, have had great results with the specially formulated herbs
we selected, for the most common health challenges many owner's
face with their horses.
have often wondered would these same people who contact me, wanting
just one pound of a special blend, call the president of
Purina or Nutrena and ask that for one
50# bag of feed they not put in one ingredient when they are
manufacturing a ton of it? I think
Song Ranch is not just some big "faceless" company who is
totally out only for profit in the market place, we do have to make a living, we have huge
business expenses just to run the business; I have a ranch
to run, horses to feed & trim, whom I take care of
myself including feeding, mucking, blanketing, tending to my
challenged ones, et al, cats and dogs; along with daily orders
to ship, and also run a small growing business
I too have a health challenged horse, Destinee
Rose has been my greatest teacher in not only barefoot, but in
nutrition and balancing hay and supplements including seeds, nuts
and fruits, her needs are special ones and her challenges are
genetic for the most part and a balancing act daily.
also have her mother, Hywynd
Echo, who foundered due to oak/acorn poisoning late last
spring, we have been detoxing her liver
and kidneys, and she is booted still to go in to turn out, she is going to be ok and is ok, and is being
treated with homeopathy and nutrition to regain her health along
with bare foot trims and several pairs of boots.
also have Cheyanne Rose, my young left
brained extrovert, who has been my
greatest teacher in our learning journey and being students of Parelli.
when I say I understand when people are searching for answers,
searching for products that may help their health challenged ones,
I too have done the same from time to time, but would not ask
anyone to change a formula or a product just for one horse.
I can help an owner with a special needs horse I do, I take many a
phone calls each day, and some I will refer to a holisitc vet or nutritionist, or barefoot
trimmer, if it is somethings beyond my
capacity or comfort zone; I will not sell you a product just to
sell you a product, and I will make
recommendation from time to time for other company's products when
appropriate, and I do not make any money off of those products or
have links on my website to people who are a resource and maybe can
help in your area for barefoot trims, I list
contact information for holistic
vets, homeopaths, nutritionists, animal communicators, kind of like
"Angie's List" I know these companies/people as well as
have used their products and the list goes on.
walk my talk, and always have, I am
passionate about natural horse care, bare foot trimming, and
nutrition, as well as supplements and immune health for your
animals, all of them!
"bull-pucky" is spoken
here! I have compassion for those seeking help for their
horses, and I wish that I could help everyone, but that is just not
is personal to me, these products are personal to me, I
have cried with many an owner on the phone when they
share their joy of seeing their animals start to regain their
health, I have cried with many an owner when the day comes to
release their horse, dog or cat from a body that no longer serves
or from old age from a life well
lived and I know that we do it all for love!
am deeply, and heart-fully grateful for all of you! I am
grateful for all the referrals you all send during the year, and I
am glad we are all on this journey together! I enjoy the
phone conversations with all of you when you call and had three of
those yesterday, and I help others who are referred to me by other
businesses or barefoot trimmers who need some help with a clients horse, gladly!
all of the above is what makes Earth Song Ranch different from the
