Painting a child a day,Volume 1....


Sherman R.I.P. 01/09
A well done art work by Debbi Flood.
This means a lot to my daughter who is approaching 22 & one of her birthday gifts.
Sherman meant so much to her that I didn't have the heart to tell her of his passing this year while out in L.A.. My daughter had just gotten drafted to become a Pro-Soccer player in December 08 and postponed the information only when her season was over..
Oh how she cried...When I found Debbi last yr I kept her as a facebook friend & new one day she will paint for me..I am honored that Debbi has added this painting to her volume 1 addition.
This book is heart warming...a must in every library & a great keepsake/heirloom.
We all miss Sherman, Thank you Debbie Flood..

WOW My blog denied..

I like to post information for all. What's wrong with that?

I just received an email from a site... that they will not be able to add my blog, because I post information rather than a story my life perhaps?
This was their reply:
We're terribly sorry to inform that your submitted link, The Natural Horse Vet, at this time can not be added to our database.
The other reason your blog may not be approved is because it isn't really a blog. Please note that we do not accept a one page blog/site that is used only as advertising for a business and not updated with new blog entries.While we do accept business blogs, they must be an official blog with news and updates as opposed to just a stand alone blog page.
Just so people know ,Dr.Dan has an official blog, it's on my site...
Oh well..
Thanks for all my visitors...

U.K. Microbiologist Finds E. Coli, Staph on Computer Keyboards

Your Keyboard: Dirtier Than a Toilet

How dirty is your Qwerty?

It turns out that your computer keyboard could put a host of potentially harmful bacteria -- including E. coli and staph -- quite literally at your fingertips.

keyboard
Your keyboard may be dirtier than you think, according to a recent swab test by a U.K. microbiologist.
(Photodisc)

Sure, it may sound like a hypochondriac's excuse to stay away from the office. But a growing body of research suggests that computer mice and keyboards are, in fact, prime real estate for germs.

It's a phenomenon most recently illustrated by tests at a typical office environment in the United Kingdom. A consumer advocacy group commissioned the tests in which British microbiologist James Francis took a swab to 33 keyboards, a toilet seat and a toilet door handle at the publication's London office in January.

Francis then tested the swabs to see what nasty germs he managed to pick up. He found that four of the keyboards tested were potential health hazards -- and one had levels of germs five times higher than that found on the toilet seat.

Artist, E. Catherine Marie ,Simplicity is Elegance.


Retiring from dentistry in 2001, ECM spent the next year in England, on hiatus, pursuing beloved equestrian studies. Internationally recognized certifications in Horse Care and Riding were completed (British Horse Society). Upon returning stateside, a storage unit of personal items was emptied, and ECM relocated to Virginia. Retained dental equipment was put back into use, and those creative hands went back to work. Simultaneously, Grandfather's piece was handed down, and the birth of Tempi Design Studio was inspired and commenced.*

"What To Feed Your Horse" #1 Convenient "basic" introductory pack includes the 3 products Dr. Dan recommends as a feeding program for good health.

H2Oil Omega Coat Check - 1 gal
H2Oil
Provides essential 3, 6 & 9 Omega Oils
(Not Heat Processed)

Omega Coat Check is especially formulated to help avoid dry, flaky and itchy skin and is EXTREMELY palatable! Great for Brood Mares too! Also fats are critical in our horses diets today. The typical diet simply does not contain enough - Omega Coat Check adds it! Linoleic, Linolenic, Oleic (Omega 3,6, and 9)PLUS Lauric Acid. - These special oils/fats in Omega Coat Check (crude), mechanically extracted soybean and coconut oils) slow the absorption of feed down too.

This is very important because of the way we feed our horses today – usually just once or twice per day right? In the wild they ate ALL DAY. It is no wonder we have so much colic, laminitis, founder, etc. today. After the first meal of the day the blood glucose goes up quite high, then it crashes quite low. Your horse’s body says “feed me I am starving” and the glucose goes high again, then low, then high. This up and down cycle all day is a tremendous internal stress, even worse than occasional sickness because it occurs day after day after day.

This daily depletion of the body’s reserves leaves nothing for when a problem really occurs. Omega Coat Check -- A tremendous addition to any feed!

NCWHMuseum,Larry Mahan interview for the Rodeo Historical Society Oral History Project

Larry Mahan interview by Gail Woerner for the Rodeo Historical Society Oral History Project
Recorded in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

Born in 1943 on a farm near Salem, Oregon, Larry Mahan is the 1966-1970 and 1973 All-Around Champion as well as the 1965 and 1967 Bull Riding Champion. Always a rough stock rider, he earned more than a half-million dollars in a professional career spanning sixteen years. Called the "cowboy in the gray flannel suit" by "Time" magazine, Larry Mahan was among the first professional hands to fly his own plane, conduct rodeo training schools, and hand out business cards on the circuit. After retiring from the arena in 1977, Larry Mahan began a successful business career. This hour-long interview was conducted in Oklahoma City at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum.

The hour-long interview is available for viewing at the Donald C. & Elizabeth M. Dickinson Research Center, National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

HISTORY OF THE KIGER MUSTANG

HISTORY OF THE KIGER MUSTANG


MesteƱo, the original lead stallion
for the Kiger herd.


In 1971 the Wild Free-Roaming Horse and Burro Act was passed by congress to protect all wild horses and burros on public lands. The Bureau of Land Management was given the responsibility to protect, manage and control these wild populations. In order to keep the herds at manageable levels, roundups or gatherings are held periodically. At this time they are counted, branded and examined. Excess animals are offered for adoption to the public, and the rest are returned to the range.

In 1977, during one of these gatherings in the remote area of Beatty's Butte, Oregon, a particular kind of horse was discovered. BLM Wild Horse Specialist, E. Ron Harding, while inspecting the herd, noticed that a number of these horses were strikingly similar in color and conformation. Upon closer observation, he ascertained that they carried the primitive markings of the Spanish mustangs. Mr. Harding arranged for these horses to be separated from the rest and held at the Burns district facility in Oregon.

When the BLM had completed all the gatherings for that year, a suitable area was chosen to release these animals. To prevent losing all the horses to a natural catastrophe, two Herd Management Areas (HMA) were selected in southeastern Oregon. Twenty of the primitively marked horses were released in the Kiger HMA, and seven in the Riddle Mountain HMA.

Kiger Mustangs are an established breed. Spanish markers were found in their blood during genetic testing by the University of Kentucky. They carry the dominant genes which code for the primitive dun factor coloration and markings. Dun factor horses are most commonly identified as duns and grullas. Dun factor markings include: dorsal stripe, jack stripe, zebra stripes on legs, arm bars, bicolored mane and tail, ears with dark outline and fawn colored interior, facial mask and cobwebbing.

The Kiger Mustang is slightly smaller than most breeds. The ears are finely pointed and slightly hooked at the tip. The head displays a broad, flat forehead, wide, prominent eyes and fine muzzle. The body conformation of the Kiger is distinctive, with chest of good depth and width, and the back short, broad and well muscled. Dense bone, compact hooves and a well-crested neck round out this unique horse.

The pH of this clay is 8.3 which is very alkalizing to the body. Toxins create an acidic condition. The more toxins i.e. heavy metals, pathogens, pesticides, unfriendly bacteria, etc. are removed the greater the alkaline condition in the body. Natural Horse Vet Magazine

It has a direct effect in removing abnormal bacteria - binding to it and removing it from the body through the elimination process and is also used as a daily detoxifier for removing toxins taken in from daily living and is great for maintaining a cleaner digestive tract.

And is often referred to as "living clay" because it consists of minerals that enhance the production of enzymes in all living organisms. Benefits of calcium montmorillonite minerals have been documented in research conducted by many scientists and leading universities. In addition to the role it plays as a potent detoxifier, Calcium Montmorillonite Clay has also been used extensively in the treatment of pain, open wounds, colitis, diarrhea, hemorrhoids, stomach ulcers, intestinal problems, acne, anemia, and a variety of other health issues.

Calcium montmorillonite mineral deposits have been used by indigenous cultures since before recorded history as an internal and external healing agent. The Native Americans would use mineral rich clay on open wounds and for stomach or intestinal distress.

REASONS NOT TO ASSAULT A RANCH WOMAN


Violence does not scare us. We ride 1,500 pound horses and stare down
An alley full of mad, snot-slinging cows that weigh over 800 pounds

We've held down calves that outweigh you by four times. Don't try to intimidate us. Most of our husbands stand a head and shoulders taller, outweigh us by 100 pounds and we aren't scared of them. Why would we be frightened by someone who can't keep their pants up?
Every time we work cows, our husbands threaten us if we don't get out of the gate. They threaten us if we don't stay in the gate. We are pretty much not impressed by threats. Plus, if you get much closer we may give you some threats of our own to consider and be able to back it up.

Don't wave that knife at me, boy. I castrate when we brand, throw the 'mountain oysters on the fire AND eat them, dirt and all. You probably don't want to go there. Don't threaten to steal my pickup. I work for a living, so have insurance. The chances of you being able to drive a standard are next to none and there is no spare.

I've walked home from the back side of the ranch, I can walk from here you want my purse? Take my purse. It has little money in it because, as I mentioned, I work for a living. You will find various receipts for feed and vet supplies, some dried up gum and the notice for my next teeth cleaning.

The only 'drugs' you will find is something that is either aspirin or a calf scours pill but its been in there so long I've forgotten which it is,
Don't threaten to hurt me. I may look old and fragile to you, but I can ride horse back for 12 hours, with nothing to eat or drink. I have been kicked bucked off, run over and mucked out I've had worse things happen to me in the corrals than you have experienced in the little gang wars you've been through, and still cooked supper for a crew.

You may whip me, son, but you'll be a tired, sore S.O.B. in the morning and yes, I will remember your face because I am used to knowing which calf belongs to which cow. I'll also remember which direction you went and what you were wearing because I've tracked many a cow with less information than you've given me. You are not going to scare me with that little 'Saturday Night Special' when I have a .38 in my boot.

You need not think I won't shoot you. I've shot several coyotes and numerous rattlesnakes. I put down my horse when he broke his leg and shot my pet dog when he killed some sheep. Don't think I won't consider you a rabid dog and go on my way.
Gal has to look after herself!

Laminitis A Dreaded Problem with a Simple Solution,What if I told you that a salt block or a mineral block could cause it?

All too often our equine companions develop the dreaded
problem called Laminitis. Laminitis means inflammation
(re. itis) of the lamina. Lamina are the major structural
components of the hoof wall. When these become
inflamed a structural breakdown of the hoof can occur.
This may even result in that really dreaded consequence
of laminitis called rotation. Rotation is a shifting of the
actual bone in the foot called a phalanx, which in
common terms, is the toe. In the horse it is referred to as
P3 or phalanx 3 (also known as the coffin bone in both
the front and hind legs, and sometimes as the pedal in
the hind leg).
When P3 does not have the support of the lamina or
hoof wall then P3 can actually protrude through the
bottom or sole of the hoof, resulting in abscesses of the
hoof. This can happen so fast that very little can be done
once it begins. Heroic attempts are often made with
special shoes, drugs, etc. but obviously it is always
serious — very serious.
Unfortunately drugs, especially steroids or antibiotics
can cause laminitis. With the over zealous use of such in
today’s medicine, such use can be even worse than the
consequences from what they are trying to fix in the
first place. Personally, I avoid the use of steroids in my
horses for fear of this possibility of laminitis (and other
things) and offer antibiotics only when a LIFE
THREATENING situation warrants such. I don’t know
for sure, but I suspect that even Barbaro’s laminitis, that
ultimately caused his demise, was a result of steroids
and such – and I know he received the best of care! It is
sort of “damned if you do or damned if you don’t” thing.
BUT quite frankly, all the more reason to have an
understanding of alternative or more natural treatments.
All this being said, I am sure you will agree that the key
to laminitis is to prevent it from ever occurring in the
first place. When it happens .. it hurts! It is painful to the
horse and to your pocket book. Can I help you ALWAYS
prevent it? NO! But honestly, I think I have a pretty good
handle on it. I have shared it with many of you in the
past in a general sort of way, but here I am going to cut
right to the chase and tell it like it is! Of course, “telling
it like it is” is my “modus operendi” anyway. Honestly
though, prevention is more simple than you might think.
In my opinion man causes most laminitis! Now I know
we don’t mean too, but we do. Have you ever left a feed
door open and somehow that very day… that one very
day out of every other day of the year… the horse gets
out of the stall or breaks through the fence and eats more
feed than he should? If you answer no…. you are a lucky
man… or woman! I hope you have never experienced
this but if you have, you probably remember the feeling
well. Your heart suddenly falls into your stomach — a
real pain in the gut not only for you but also the horses!
I hope I haven’t brought back home some bad memories
but…. Since we have the pain in the gut let’s just go
ahead and talk about the gut.
Almost every major health problem in the horses starts
in the gut. Horses have huge intestines and along with
the skin (even larger surface area) and the liver, the
intestines are the bodies first line of defense. Just imagine
what a job the intestines have. The very lining of the
intestines themselves are constantly deciding what is
good for the body and what is bad….. Decisions,
decisions, decisions, don’t you hate them? The “Good”
is absorbed and utilized as fuel for the body. The “Bad”
is immediately discharged through the feces or dealt with
some other way. It is the “in-between” that the body
must actually deal with. Sort of like life in general—the
“indecision” ..that “trying to decide” part that drives us
crazy. Any change to this incredibly balanced system
could be life threatening.
But how can a change in gut cause a problem in the
feet? A very good question indeed… and honestly man
doesn’t know all the answers. One thing for sure that
we do know is that when you suddenly change the
bacteria in the gut all He…double hockey sticks, (LL),
breaks out! We know that too much food within to short
of time can cause such a change and we know that
medications (the antibiotics, the steroids) can as well.
What if I told you that a salt block or a mineral block
could cause it?
