Great natural horse products from Silver Lining Herbs
Often at DePaolo Equine Concepts we like to showcase like-minded companies to show our support in the holistic health movement especially when it pertains to horses. Silver Lining Herbs is is a perfect example of a family-owned company, “with a passion for helping people take optimum care of their animals for both health and performance.” The founder of SLH grew up on a ranch in close proximity to the Navajo Indians from who he learned about the medicinal power of herbs. He has passed along his interest to his son and the now acting CEO of SLH, his granddaughter.
Silver Lining Herbs has a long list of symptoms ranging from “Bad Hauler” to “Hormone Imbalance” to “Overweight” and they have an herbal recommendation for each health issue. For example, the Joint Support recommendation has a mixture of Burdock, Butchers Broom, Chaparral, Devil’s Claw, Ginger, Kelp, Slippery Elm, Uva Ursi, White Willow, Yarrow, and Yucca to increase synovial fluid and relieve sore joints. To combat lethargy, Immune Support blend has Barberry, Cascara, Echinacea, Eleuthero, Garlic, Licorice Root, Olive Leaf, Parsley, Plantain, Red Clover, Rose Hips, Sarsaparilla, and Wheat Grass.
A great summer product from SLH is their herbal wormer. “The herbs used in this herbal combination are for the maintenance of a healthy and naturally worm- and parasite-free system. This combination works by simply maintaining an environment which is not welcoming to parasites and worms; they are opportunistic and need an unclean environment to thrive. ” One bag of this product can last a horse up to year. They also have a very extensive list of herbal recommendations for your ‘sidekicks’ too!
