such a different feel to fall, the air has that bit of
"crisp" to it in the morning, the down comforteres
are now on the bed, we have had our first fire in the wood burning
stove, and our first frost. The ash trees are already turning
yellow and dropping leaves, with the berry bushes not far behind.
The sun reflects differently on the trees and plants, the
afternoon shadows cast a different pattern and there is a
"reflection" that is different then other times of the
come to love fall, the passing of summer while we transition in to
winter, a time of boots, jackets, turtlenecks and baking.
From the Ranch ~ Transitioning
As many are aware by now we have a new
web site, if not, click this link to be taken there -> ESR; with
that came a new shopping cart, a new bank and a new gate way, a
merchant services company, so lots of changes ~ it was time for
change, for new things and with that came new products, and no longer
selling a few.
We had a few technical challenges with
the launch of the new web site, but I think that most have now been
found and corrected!
I had already started the process of
reformulating the EquineZyme and the EquineZyme Plus, and had been dabbling with a new
K-9 Zyme as well. I had planned to
transition those towards the end of the year, smoothly, but as
sometimes happens, there was another plan I
was not aware of in the Universal scheme of things, and it was to be
sooner than later!
That additional change which pretty
much occurred, sooner then I had expected, but had been planning for
is a new manufacturer for Equine-Zyme and Equine-Zyme
Plus, along with our popular K-9 Zyme.
I had been exploring with several new manufacturing companies over
the summer, and had pretty much selected whom I wanted to work
with. I was looking for a company with a history, with a
formulator on staff; one who had the highest in integrity, one who
uses ingredients that are the highest qulaity as well as made in the USA;
one who was financially solvent, had a great track record, and whose
pricing would still keep the products affordable.
As I have been told often, watch what you "ask for" because.... you just may get it.....
and I did and it came about far quicker then I had expected, it
caught me a bit off guard with very little stock left in the way of
Equine Zyme, Equine Zyme
Plus or K-9 Zyme; was a bit out of my
control, although I had suspected for some time might
happen........ The company whom I had worked with for eight
years, who blended and packaged for Earth Song Ranch, was financially
challenged, had been struggling in this economy with their overall
business and I was only informed last week, would no longer be able
to maintain their manufacturing business.
It will be a short while before we
will be offering the EZ, EZ Plus and K-9 Zyme,
but in the mean time, I made sure that for those of you who wanted to
continue with a daily pre-biotic/ pro-biotic would have a blend, and
for now we do have a substitute in the interim, which is Gut Werks
by Horse Tech which we sell on the webs site, it has
a prebiotic/ probiotic
blend in a high potency yeast and yeast culture, a few different probiotics and some similar to EZ and EZ Plus, at
20 billion cfu's per scoop. For
those of you who would like to, in the alternative, feed a yeast and
yeast culture to maintain your horses intestinal bacteria we also
offer Yeast +
by Horse Tech as well it is a very high potency yeast and yeast
culture with 40 billion active yeast cells per scoop. For K-9 Zyme we are offering the Horse Tech Pup Sup Canine Probiotic.
Just so all of you know and feel confident
about the three products, I am offering in the short term, and will
sell even when the new blends are available, it is also what I am
feeding to my horses and my dogs, until we have our new Equine Zyme, Equine Zyme Plus,
and K-9 Zyme ~ all of which will be new and
improved, with a higher quality active yeast and yeast culture, a new
blend of probiotics which will include the
same ones plus some new ones, at more then 20 billion per each scoop
for the horses, with the added diegestive
enzymes, which has always been my guarantee to you, still with
one of the highest guaranteed cfu's on the
market! The Pup Sup Canine
also containg flax and is great for your
dogs coats and skin!
Rest assured, we are not going out of
business, and although we hit a major bump in the road in sales with
the Government Shut down these past two weeks, then coupled with the
long term manufacturer no longer able to produce, there are no
mistakes in the Universe, change is good but
not always easy. I am sure the sales will begin to
increase once again for the long run, and they are still coming in in the short run, just not at the volume we are
We still have all the herbal blends in
stock, have a new batch of Winter Blend to make up today, as we have sold
out two batches in the past months and all the other great products
we offer as well!
you in advance for your understanding and your patience while we wait
for the new products to be formulated!
