Overview

While the number of books published on the use of herbs for human healthcare has skyrocketed, information on their use for animals has lagged behind. This is especially true for our larger companion animals such as horses. Two of my former students, Stacey Small and Andrea Baldwin have teamed up to create an Equine Herbal, that gives veterinarians, herbalists, horse owners and trainers the needed knowledge to help prevent and treat the ills common to these amazing animals. I am proud of their effort to bring healing and good health to this neglected area of herbal medicine. David Winston, RH (AHG)

Stacey and Andrea have done a great job of putting together a book that will be a mainstay of equine literature for a long time. Thank you both for doing this. Joyce Harman DVM, MRCVS

This is the book I have been waiting for. Finally, someone has put all the known information on our favorite herbs in one convenient place. In this comprehensive text you can find the physical action of an herb as well as how it is used in homeopathy, flower essences, and aromatherapy with specifics on use in horses. Most importantly, is the focus on the energetics of herbs. The energy of an herb affects how it interacts in the body and with other herbs. In my opinion, using an herb without understanding its energetic nature is like trying to play a game without a rulebook. Considering the energetics of an herb, like rules in a playbook, facilitates harmony towards a common goal rather than individual forces acting randomly or against each other. Congratulations to the authors for a job well done. Madalyn Ward, DVM and author of Holistic Horsekeeping and Horse Harmony

If you want to use nature's medicines to keep your horse healthy, buy this book! Stacey and Andrea have created a much needed reference work complete with herbal safety, methods of use, dosage, and the most importantly the essential energetics of each herb according to Traditional Chinese Medicine. As a doctor of oriental medicine, this is my go-to book for working with my two mares.... a great addition to the library of anyone interested in holistic equine healthcare. Barbara Thurman, DOM, AP, CCT

Truly a holistic approach - encouraging the reader to learn and understand the actions and interactions of herbal use with horses. Mary Ann Simonds, MA - Author, Educator, Equine Ecologist

Through much of my career as an integrative veterinary medicine practitioner, Stacey Small has been my "go to" for really practical, accurate, understandable information about herbal remedies. Her passion for learning and research, and her talent for education have made her knowledge base something we all want more of! And here it is, in a beautifully written and organized book that everyone can own! Thank you Stacey and Andrea; the horse's thank you! Judith Shoemaker, DVM
