is the first of May, Happy Happy May, as
the flowers are bursting forth, we have already had our first heat
wave, and a gopher ate my rose bush! Bummer! Planting
some other bushes with gopher baskets this weekend to protect them!
my Iris are blooming and beautiful, the peach and apple tree have
fruit set as do the red pears! Life is good on the ranch ~ have
had a few health challenges with the horses of late but we are
working through them with the help of my friend Monique from Hay
Pillows, a custom vitamin mix from Horse Tech to balance to the hay I
feed, my vet Dr Moss and my long time friend and Farrier
Lee Ward ~ not looking forward to fly season, but have Predators and
fly traps on the way!
The Iris above is from Elk
Meadow Farm and Nursery out of Idaho!
Oh if I could just go back in time, to a place and time where I was
able to share just one more Mother's Day together with my Mom, my
Granny, and my Auntie Ena ~ I know I can go
there in my mind & heart, it is the physical presence I miss, the
sound of laughter, their voices; for all the years we had together,
all the cups of tea and conversation, and the love we all
shared. Happy Mother's Day to all of you, be it Fur Mom or real
Mom, enjoy the day!
it seems as though April has been one of the toughest months of this
new year, at least it seemed that way to me, and felt that way too,
because of the two jarring lunar eclipses shaking up our days; Mother
Earth has also been groaning with all of the big earth quakes; then
you add to that a Grand Cardinal Cross which brought much angst to
I am grateful we are now in to May and some kinder energy will be
spending the past month in the intense energy of the eclipses and the
Cardinal Cross, the intensity should all start to be a faded memory
soon. It is time to start manifesting our hopes wishes and dreams and
begin to thrive, to really grow!
is the time to start to hatch those plans that have been incubating
for many months or that were set aside.... oh the places you're/we're
going to go, if we just trust, focusing on the positive as well as
things close to our hears, the things you will and can do if you just
is time that we manifest our heart's desires with lightness, ease and
grace. So choose wisely and well, and, for good ness
sakes choose ONLY the people, places and things who make you happy
and who fill your heart with joy!
- General Natural Pest Control too!
really is time to start thinking fly control all over the country - Earth Song Ranch has partnered up with
Spaulding Labs (Fly Predators) and we are now offering them on our
web site! You will see the Spaulding Link when you go in to the
Song Ranch has used the Spaulding Lab's products successfully for
years, probably more than 10 years and notice
a huge difference around the barn and the property! We use the
predators, the Star Mark fly traps for the barn and odor no more in
is also important to naturally repel flies from your horses too, and
one of our favorites, and that of my horse's
is Buggzo! Buggzo is a pelleted Apple Cider Vinegar, Garlic, B-1 and DE
product that we also sell, it is manufactureed
by Horse Tech, and we are offering it at 5% off this month, for the
entire month of May! Use coupon code BZ5 to get your discount on
those of you battling ants DE (diatimatious
earth) is a great all natural product that you can sprinkle around
the foundation of your home or barn and keep the ants out! I
also mix it with Dawn dish soap and pour it down red ant hills
effectively as well!
those of you who have dogs who are flea magnets, Dawn Dish Soap is a
great "shampoo" kills the fleas and cleans the dog,
especially dogs with oily coat!
What is it
about Cushings this year?
past week has been a record setting one in that I have received 10
calls/emails from people new to Earth Song Ranch products, with
horses they are suspecting of having Cushings
or Pre-Cushings. I usually get three
or four per month not 10 in one week!!! All of these
owner's want to treat their horses more naturally - not with Pergolide or the other drugs now out there.
They all are seaking alternatives wanting
the best for their horse(s).
it be that this harsh winter brought it on by stress, or just that
they produced heavier coats to deal with the cold and are not
shedding them out so that the owner's would know? I don't have
the answers to that, but I do have some supportive and preventative
products that we have offered for years and have really helped many
horses with pre or full blown Cushings!
worry about my own horses and just how much chemical stuff they are
being exposed to in their hay, not sure of the answer to this all,
but do know that our Cushings-Zyme
has helped many along with the Chaste Tree Berry Tea which is a
fresh version of Evitex at 1/4 the price
and affordable to all! Kelp is also a great supportive "herb" ! Cushing-Zyme
contains kelp, chaste tree berry, stevia,
parsley and other supportive herbs. My 20 years old mare High
Wind Echo is on the Chaste Tree Berry Tea and also CushingsZyme, along with a homeopathic remedy,
and it has kept her fit and with really no signs of the disease.
many know Cushings is a Pitituary
disorder, and many are beginning to think it is becoming more common
due to the "Round Up" ready crops (alfalfa for one) and the
over use of Round Up as well, which affects the body in so many ways,
it affects the thyroid and the pituitary and not for good either!
I have a new batch of herbs
arriving this week to make a new batch of CushingZyme
- so I am offering CushingZyme at 15% off from May 4th through the
10th! Use coupon code CZ15. And
with each order I will send you a packet of Chaste Tree Berry Tea
which makes one quart ~ free!
and We Listened!
