Herbs and whole foods for horses oct 29th
Join us at Ohana farm for the ever popular class on Self Selection (Zoopharmacognosy), Herbs and Whole foods for horses. We will be covering the specific steps to adding this amazingly beneficial, educational and fun practice to your horses program.
Self-Selection (Zoopharmacognosy) is the offering of essential oils, Medicinal and Nutritional herbs, Oils, Minerals and Whole foods. Animals in the wild are free to roam and find what they need for nutritional balance and wellness. Domestic animals have little access to the variety or fresh foods they would normally eat. Self Selection allows your animal to instinctively pick what it needs for its own Nutritional, Physical and Emotional balance. Bring the meadow to your horse! We are one of the only farms to do this and offer classes in it. Don’t miss out! The class will run from 8:30-12pm. The class is open to 10 horses and unlimited auditing. The fee for the class is $150.00 per horse and $35.00 for auditing.Register now!
