I have experienced the lifelong hardships of 24x7 responsibility and horse ownership that offers you the traditional post vet care and home remedies that can nurse your horse to health with absolute dedication and knowledge. Owning and running Bonogin Valley Horse Retreat for over 7 years we have had to deal with a long list of injuries and treatment programs for young and old horses and I'm sure many of these injuries would ring a bell for many of you:

Cronic Laminitis,  Cushings Disease, Respiratory Infections

Buttons my Shetland
- her story and the amazing results of StemEquine
·      December 2013 my Shetland of 15yrs could hardly walk standing on the manure pile swaying from foot to foot in pain
·      She was on bute, pergolide and founder guard and nothing was working
·      Weekly feet trims and filing the souls of her feet
·      In the past she had been through similar pain where we had wrapped her feet in cold clay daily and we then had to put her in high heel front shoes, clean her feet out daily and soak in iodine
·      On top of this she would get regular respiratory infections with a very smelly mucous nostril on one side and even asthma needing a puffer

Running around in 2 weeks a significant difference and now no longer any respiratory problems and only on quarter a scoop of StemEquine daily. Less than $1 a day.
