EquiMed, The Horse Owner's Horse Health Website. A site dedicated to horse owners and horse healthcare.

The Texas Hay Net Save 40%-50% on your hay bill! Certainly we are all looking for ways to eliminate waste in our hay feeding programs and The Texas Hay Net drops waste to almost nothing, but the benefits of slow feeding are recognized as a way to restore a horse to its proper weight and balance out the functions of organs. Slow feed mimics the horse's intake of feed in the wild and in doing so does not overwhelm the body organs with more than they can handle. As a matter of fact, slow feeding will actually cause the organs to function well again because they are taking in food at a rate in which the organs are designed to handle. Saliva in the mouth is able to begin the digestion process normally. The liver, responsible for filtering out toxins from the system is no longer in overwhelm trying to handle the heavy metal toxins present due to fertilizers used in the growing process. We have our horses on slow feed now thanks to Leslie at the Texas Hay Net. This is a tough, durable net capable of putting up with a lot of horsing around for a number of years.

Healthy Happy Horses Naturally, by Catherine Bird

Herbs for the Horse Owner, by Catherine Bird

Unwanted Horse Coalition - The mission of the Unwanted Horse Coalition is to reduce the number of unwanted horses and to improve their welfare through education and industry collaboration. A wealth of information and solutions is available on their website.

signal-health.com, Equiwinner is a patented, non-invasive dermal patch. It serves as a natural electrolyte-balancing system. It's safe, effective and easy to us. One 10 day, single treatment of patches can be effective for months and even up to one year, when used as directed. Equiwinner patches contain only natural balanced electrolytes. Nothing goes into the horse's body. The body simply recognizes the electrolytes in the patches and responds to them. No side effects and Equiwinner will never test positive in any competition, race, event or sport. Sox For Horses used these patches on our own horse that suffered from anhidrosis, the failure to sweat, and today, she sweats great.

Clicker Training Sox For Horses is breaking new ground using clicker training as taught by Peggy Hogan to bring an adopted Jenny donkey from a near state of feral to one hug loving and gentle burro. It's gentle and Coco has gone from running away from me to looking forward to the next time I come around. This is no longer a donkey I have to chase for anything. Raymond Petterson

Equestrisafe makes identification bands for your animals so that in the event, something happens and they are out on their own, someone can figure out where they came from and help you get them back. It just makes sense.

Heathereve Bristol.com, for those with an open mind, is an animal communicator. I used her to help me unlock some major trust issues that were preventing Coco, my rescued Jenny from bonding and opening herself up to me. Heather has also worked with top horse trainers and veterinarians (from Racehorses to Hunter/Jumpers) to assist in the communication between horse and human. She has communicated with many different types of animals, from cats and dogs to snakes and donkeys; always with the goal to deepen the connection between human and animal.

Animals To Wear.com - Another of our favorite artists, Rebecca Raubacher's art is a joy to wear. Check out then out next time you need a really cool present for the equinestas in your life.

Equimanagement Magazine - We think Equimanagement Magazine not only has great articles for vets but for owners too.

Stable Management - This is a great online magazine that is full of good barn management information.

Fungus Free Plus - We found out about this product from Dr Brennan Fitzgerald Lee of Louisiana who deals with some really bad fungal issues. It has proven to be effective on Summer Sores appearing on horses, such as the mouth or face. Trainer and Equine Rehab Professional, Kate DeQuatro of Havana Florida has used it many times with good success. Because our sox can’t bandage every place on a horse, the alternative is to find something else that is workable and Fungus Free Plus by all recommendations is a good product to pass on.

EquiPro Bedsore boots - We like these fetlock boots. The only issue with them is that they are made with neoprene and can be hot in the summer, but when they are worn over the Silver Whinnys, during other times of the year, they provide vital protection for bedsores on the fetlocks while the sores heal. Once the sores are healed, and if the weather remains cool, the boots can be left on to prevent re-injury to the fragile new skin tissue. Bed sores need to not only heal, but continue to be protected indefinitely to prevent the sores from coming back.

Net Posse - Net Posse, also known as Stolen Horse International, is all about helping people find their horses and they are serious about it. You don’t want to just post your missing horse on FB, Get the Professionals looking for you and using all of their resources on your horse’s behalf.
