" WHERE THERE IS A HOOFPICK, THERE SHOULD BE CLAY "
A person who observes nature can witness the fact that animals instinctively use earth to cure themselves.
As a matter of fact, we owe much of our discovery in this field to animals.
Your horse will greatly benefit of this clay's healing properties.
If you own a horse, you probably know that your equine partner is subject to encounter many physical problems in his life.
Difficulty to heal wounds (especially on legs), infections etc... The list goes on..
Learn how clay will help your horse, relieve pain and heal your horse in so many cases.
Today, you can offer your horse, your foal the clay healing treatments, with of course , the participation of your veterinarian.
Proceed wisely ! Alert your veterinarian who will diagnose your horse and will be able to administrate an internal treatment.
Clay requires a consistency in the treatment.. But the results are there, and healing is on its way..

Don't wait until something happens ! Have some clay handy...
You will find yourself using it more than you think.
Please call me anytime with your questions.
It is important to me that you don't buy ,just "another" product , but that you understand as much as possible what you are buying, and the multiple occasions to use the clay.
PREPARING A POULTICE FOR YOUR HORSE ( with raw clay)
The preparation of a poultice takes only a few minutes. Simple and easy to do.
* Put desired quantity of clay in a glass or earthy bowl.
* Just add slowly some mineral water.
* Wait a minute until clay absorbed the water and makes a nice pasty poultice.
* You can use a wooden spoon to mix.
* Your poultice is ready to be applied.
APPLYING THE POULTICE ON YOUR HORSE.
Simply apply the clay on desired area.
The thicker the layer, the longer clay will be effective.
(These pictures are of my horse Delicate, who injured herself, probably playing..
She was not putting any weight at all on her front right leg.
After making sure it was not a foot problem, and not really knowing what the issue was and where (muscle, tendon,ligament,knee,shoulder...), poultices were applied 3 times a day.
On the second day, she was putting weight on it.
On the 5th day, she was bucking and running ...
If you happen to purchase some "Clay wraps" and want to add it after, your horse will look like he has a nice cast on.. Definitely a great way to seal it.
When clay is dry, it is not active anymore. This is why we suggest you wrap the desired area to keep it moist as long as possible. ( plastic film etc.. but don't tighten it)
On a wound, it is suggested to apply an unfolded gauze first.This way clay will be easier to remove .
Horses seem to know instinctively the usefulness of contact with clay when they are ill or wounded.. They will be thanking you !
RINSING OFF YOUR POULTICE.
Rinse off with water. No alcohol or soap between applications.
RE-APPLY YOUR POULTICE AS NEEDED.
IN YOUR HORSE'S WATER
Remember that your clay should never be in contact with metal.
Therefore, do not add clay to your horse's water in anything metallic.
A plastic trough, a bucket are great.
You can offer your horse a 3 weeks clay water treatment.
You can also give him the choice (or not) of both, regular water and clay water.
You might be surprised of seeing your friend going for that muddy water.
Let's base it on a 5 gallon bucket...... Add 7 or 8 ounces of clay in it.
Fill the bucket when it is empty, with water.
Once every 2 days, rinse off bucket and replace clay.
Do this for 3 weeks.
It is common to treat internally a horse with an external injury and infection,with 4 times this amount...
You can do this treatment as many times as you think is good for your horse thru the year.
My horses are given the choice al year long. It is not the most economical way to do it, but always a pleasure to see how they decide what they need.
Animals know better what they need in the moment!
IN YOUR HORSE'S FEED
You can add clay into your horse's feed as well.
Add it to their hay by sprinkling it on top.
Feed it in a bucket , especially if you are already giving him other supplements. Mix it with the rest...
(here is on this picture.. my current morning mix.. rice bran, flaxseeds, probiotics and clay..)
1 % of the feed portion when you first introduce your horse to clay.
Up to 5 % after this.
Let's make it a little simplier.
Let's say we base it on a 7 lbs feed portion.
1 % of your 7 lbs is about 1.12 oz
You can feed him the clay occasionally thru the year ( but at least 3 consecutive weeks)
You might be simply surprised of how horses will enjoy eating " dirt " ....
Out of your hand .
