Aug misc herb/goat updates


People have been asking us if we have an herbal product for heartworm support- yes we do, it's called DWorm H and is a tincture. It can be placed in their food, their water if they will drink it, or given orally. It is meant to give traditional heart support along with chasing the problems responsible for any damage. This could also be used in larger dosages along with high dosages of PreVent for traditonal support in parvo.

Our milker, Rosine, has made it onto the ADGA breedleader list for her last year's milk record. This is her year! LA 92, breedleader, milk awards at the national show, and 3 finished LA 91 adult kids :). God has blessed.

I will be in and out for September, but my husband is able to reach me when I am in cell range. We are planning on showing at state fair (Oregon), and then I was given a spot by my husband to go to a ladie's retreat out of state with some gals at our church for a graduation present. Even at this late date God allowed us to be able to use frequent flier miles for the airfare!

Blessings, Kat

Josephine County Fair, Herbal updates....

It's official, I've been now granted the title of Master Herbalist or M.H. God is so good to have directed me to this program and helping me to make it through it. I don't yet know all of my test scores, but was told I had passed everything and had done well.... Should know more in a week....

Making wonderful progress on the Aromatherapy. Have two assignments I actually completed at last week's fair ready to type out and mail in... Just one more lab assignment and then study study for that test.... God is GOOD!

The fair, what a blessing. A great time with friends, mostly all members of our local dairy goat club. Opportunities to share and pray with people :). And God granted us two Best Doe in Show wins- 1st day a togg, 2nd day a lamancha, several Grand Champions, allowing us to finish 2 yo Xochitl! and some nice RGCH as well, even 2 on a milking yearling lamancha. We really are thankful. Very short show season for us this year, but most blessed. State fair in a couple weeks is what we are planning.

Time to catch up on some tincture making... Came back to some herb and veggie seeds ready to collect, and herbs doing well :O). Also time to catch up with my hubby....

What a week!

We're new to blogging, so please be patient with us as we learn this new tool!

Last week was spent in Utah, taking 8 exams in 5 days for my Master Herbalist diploma. A very fun, very educational, very long hours, and intense week of study, but I think thoroughly worth it! It will probably be 2 to 3 weeks until all of the tests are corrected...

I am now working on Aromatherapy certification, and am just getting ready to begin Wholistic Iridology, a fascinating field, practiced in Germany for about 200 years, and in this country by medical doctors until the early 1900's when it was removed from their education.... Iridology is a study of the eyes, allowing us to view inherant weaknesses in a body to allow a person to know ahead which areas in their body they are going to want to nourish before a problem sets in. I will be using it in livestock and pets as well.
