Our very handsome Gunner was injured this week on a gate post. After X-ray and scan the vet thankfully said the object had punctured deep but missed injuring the bone but the ligaments will take a little time to heal and some more time before Livvy and Gunner can get back on track with their endurance fun.
There are herbs and essential oils which can now help Gunner with his healing process and we will keep you updated. Alternatively if you want to see Gunner’s progress yourself and you fancy learning more about which oils to offer in a first aid situation like ours, we have organised our first Essential Oils Workshop for equine owners. This workshop covers essential oils that are beneficial to equines, how to offer them and in what circumstances; there will be theory in the morning and a demo and practice on our horses in the afternoon. George McBurney from Juniper Natural Therapies in Dorset will be joining us at Paintedhorse on Sat 4th Mar 17 to run this workshop, if you are interested in booking your place, please contact us.
A testimonial from an Equine Oils Workshop:
“Wow, what an eye opener to how a horse reacts to oils! Thank you George for such a well put together workshop. We spent the morning discussing the theory of the oils, including the legal regulations and learning how to dilute the essential oil in a carrier for offering to the horse. After lunch, we had a lovely time spent with our horses offering them oils and deciphering their reactions, with George’s guidance. I have been able to contact George for further advice and friendly guidance” – Jenny, Weymouth.
