am so please with the response, from all of you, in regards to the
new products I spent time testing, researching and deciding
upon, which I have added to the website; they
are not only unique, but also health enhancing. It does
take some time to get to know whether a product will do what is
claimed, and to know that the integrity of the company matches that
of Earth Song Ranch as well.
of you around the country and Canada do not have access to the
natural products that we have here in California, so I am happy to
share some of those with you, including the California sunshine
found in the avocado oil products, as well as being a resource
for some of the other ones. I have been so blessed to live
here all of my life, and to have the abundance all year long of the
produce we are able to grow!
me know if any of you are interested in Holiday
Gift Baskets for your friends and family, I may consider doing them
again this year as a few people have asked for them.
is changing, and Earth Song Ranch continues to change and grow, we
are here for the long run! We are here for you, your
horses, cats and dogs, and to share wisdom, knowledge, and health
enhancing products, we are here to share resources and knowledge!

great coupon offers till the end of the month!
LATEST NEWS & EVENTS —
I love this photo.....
reminds me of the country roads my dad and I would take the dogs
for walks, our Irish Setter the Terrible Peter O'toole,
and his lab Kasey, just to be in nature and for them to
run. This sure shows the changing of the season and the time
of year we are in.
Ready for Winter's First
what are you doing to get ready for winter for your horses?
you getting blankets water proofed?
in more hay, hay pellets, rice bran and oats?
love Halloween, it has always been a favorite time with kids, and
trick or treaters, and it is the gateway
to Thanksgiving coming, and moving in to a cooler time of year, a
time to give thanks for all that we have and for the year that we
are coming to a close on very quickly!
am already collecting bulbs to plant this fall for spring
color! For now Iris and Daffodils and am deciding on the
rest! How about you?
of my favorites is Daffodils and I have them tooled on my saddle!
what are you doing to prepare for the cooler fall months and the
winter to come? What changes do you make to prepare your
horses? What measures do you take to make sure they are
sheltered from the harsh winter that is predicted this year?
we have already had rain, which is a bit unusual for this time of
year, and cool nights, so the horses have had rain sheets on for a
couple days now! Stable blankets are ready and we are prepared for
any weather that may come!
my horses, this year they will have barn stalls to go in, but what
I have done is started to up their hay pellets just a little bit at
night, we have been in the low 40's and that is usually when I will
increase them, also giving them a little more hay, and I have
added a scoop of Beta Blend to that along with their EquineZyme, Kelp, MSM and Vitamin C. When
it gets colder yet I up the recleaned
oats and maybe add a bit of barley....
we get in to the very cold nights I do a horse tea of warming herbs
and heat their nightly bucket feed. (see recipe below) Am going to
have this tea available for sale in the next few weeks, in a convient tea bag that you can toss out after it
is also time to stock the freezer with things to make crock pot
soups, and have extra things in the cupboards just in case... as
well as have a supply of cat and dog food in the pantry!
Light Savings time is coming to an end, on
November 4th when we turn back our clocks and we are only two
weeks away from Halloween --- wow, these are the two markers to
start to get ready for ....... Thanksgiving!
another year has flown by, each year seems to go faster and faster,
or we are just all so busy we don't notice it until the markers we
are so used to begin to show up?
Have a Happy and Safe Halloween what ever you are
been looking for some time for just the right place for my fur
family and I, for all of us to be safe, back up in the high desert,
not too far from where I am living now, and
it looks like we found it!
used to live in the high desert about 5 years ago, the
energy of the area really appeals to me and my horses thrive up
there. They are on well water we have good hay
available, a local farmer's market for organic produce, and most of
all built in friends who live in the neighborhood or are in
the process of moving there, as well as have made some new friends
already, all horse women!
our new home is painted a light yellow, the 2.5 acres is
completely fenced and cross fenced, with a 3 stall barn with
turnouts, two dry lot pastures, one can be used for an area
and one for a big turn out during the day, the barn has a feed
room, and lights, with a large covered area for hay storage
for the winter; we get all four seasons, including a bit of
snow and there is plenty of room to grow my business, grow a
garden, plant my bulbs, and do my shipping.
the dogs there is a huge fenced area to run, as well as the cats to
be safe! We are close enough to Temecula but far enough out
in the country, and not that far from Palm Springs!
hope to be moving the last weekend in October, before Halloween and
the full moon, but time will tell, as I get more organized,
get packed, and get things arranged, it could be the first weekend
in November too! But nonetheless it is very soon now that we
will be on the road to our new "home". Friends have
volunteered to help move us, so have given notice, time will be
here before I know it, and we will be moving! Whooo hoooo...... we
should be all moved in and settled within plenty of time to
put things away, and able to cook a Thanksgiving dinner for the
first time in years!

we approach the end of a year, with the end of a summer season
just past, settling in to fall, with the promise of holidays
coming, I am beginning to reflect on all that I have to be
thankful for - all that I have gratitude for and all that I have in
the way of friends as well as family --- my son is having surgery
today October 15th, I am sure he will be fine, and back home in the
afternoon. My grandkids are thriving as well as excelling in
swim and cross country; my daughter and her family are doing well
and I know that even though her company may be going through lay
offs in the near future she will also be fine!
am moving to a wonderful house, a wonderful new life, and a new
beginning for me and my fur family, for this I am most
grateful. I am in total gratitude for all of you, for my
company continuing to grow, for sharing my gifts in helping many of
you with your animals and their health challenges in this and other
am grateful for my parents, who I speak of often and
miss, the gifts they gave me that shaped me in many ways, and
for my Granny Millett's genetics and excellent health --- what are
you all grateful for? Would love to know!
