Rank #2: Large Animal Rescue - Help, Don't Hurt - Episode 10

Podcast cover
Read more

Horse Welfare Incs, Jo Briggs talks about the Large Animal Emergency Rescue Workshops which they coordinate .  As horse owners, none of us like to think about the possibility of  a ‘disaster’ or emergency situation occurring with our horses, but this course helps us think through the ‘what if’ scenarios and covers all the essential skills necessary in dealing with many equine emergency situations.  You might not need these ever for your own horse(s) but you never know, they might come in very handy for someone elses horse (or cow).

The skills learned at this workshop serve all horse people really well in routine equine practice, as well as stressful equine emergency rescue situations and  the course is designed to guide participants through emergency procedures for large animal (horses particularly) rescue.  It is ideally suited to all horse industry people, anyone who is transporting horses and towing floats, as well as emergency services professionals.

Rank #5: Horse Welfare Horse Charity - Everyday Heroes For Horses - Talking About Horses podcast with Di Denton, Episode 6

Podcast cover
Read more
Di Denton talks with Jo Briggs and friends about Horse Welfare,  a Hunter Valley based registered horse charity and their ongoing efforts to help horses.
Horse Welfare was formed to support and co-ordinate the rehabilitation and rehousing of horses in Australia. Horses who may have been neglected, left behind, forgotten, mistreated or simply unable to be cared for by their owners.Not all of these horses come from homes where they were not loved. In fact, a large percentage of horses in the current climate are victims of drought or flooding in parts of our country. Their families are suffering, livelihoods are being threatened and the horses are simply victims passed on by regretful owners. Others come from homes where their owners were simply not educated appropriately in the care or management of horses. And sadly, some do come from backgrounds of complete neglect, abandonment and careless breeding programs.

Tuffrock - Transforming Volcanic Residue For Your Horses Benefit - Episode 15 Talking About Horses with Di Denton
Steve Hurley, the co-founder of TuffRock, is an interesting bloke. I met Steve at the New South Wales Hunter Horse Festival (he’s a Hunter Valley local) and we sat down and talked about his path into the horse industry, the establishment of Tuffrock and Tuffrocks’ range of products for horses, dogs, cattle and chickens. Tuffrock combines an intimate knowledge of Australian volcanic soils and the minerals they contain, with their’ own specialised method of extracting those very minerals and ensuring their bioavailabilty to animals. TuffRock was established in July 2002 following several years of extensive Research and Development, product development and test marketing. With a view to manufacturing environmentally friendly animal health products, Tuffrock takes pride in being a nutraceutical manufacturer and ensuring that there are no drugs, chemicals, biotics, enzymes or heavy metals used in their products.
I've used Tuffrock products on and with my own horses and found them to be excellent.

Rank #9: Itchy Scratchy Horses - Calafea Oil To The Rescue! - Ep 14 Talking About Horses with Di Denton and Lee Etherington

Podcast cover
Read more
Queensland Itch, Summer Itch, Sweet Itch or Summer Eczema – call it what you will, but if you’ve got an itchy horse then you definitely know what it is and how it affects your  horse - up close and personally!There are many ways and many products that Australian horse owners use to treat their itchy horses (you've probably already got a feed shed full of various lotions and potions designed to help ), with last resort options even coming down to having to send or sell ‘insect tortured’ horses to a home over the ‘ranges’ away from the coast for lasting relief.So, where does a bloke, with a background in molecular biology, a passion for virgin coconut products and a well developed liking – and business - for Hibiscus flowers in syrup (floating in champagne of course!) come into the itchy scratchy horse picture?Well,  Lee Etherington is just that bloke and I met him at Equifest Sydney when I stopped by his trade stand to find out about his new magic ‘itch fixing oil’ Calafea. Now, Lee has no real background in horses specifically, but he certainly knows about coconut oil products, the Australia native oils Lemon Myrtle and Neem and after in depth research, the allergic reactions that insect bites can cause in sensitive horses (particularly Icelandic horses and Clydesdales).   So, after becoming aware of the ongoing, widespread Summer Eczema problem with horses in Germany (to where he was a regular traveller) he decided to see what he could do about it.Fast forward 3 years and Lee’s 100% natural itch oil Calafea is now successfully into its 3rd year helping itchy horses in Germany and beyond with a proven 89% effectiveness reported. ‘Get Rid Of The Rug’ is Lee’s aim for itchy horses and their owners and having now introduced Calafea Itch Oil into the Australia market, it will be interesting to see how it goes here – from all accounts, well.  I’ll be interested to try it on one of my horses myself – oh, and did I mention Lee says its effective (and safe) on dogs and humans and their itchy bites too?If you’d like to know more about Calafea oil head to their website at www.calafea.com or their Facebook page at Calafea-HORSE- Australia.

Rank #10: Hunter Valley Brumbies - Ep 13 Talking About Horses with Di Denton and Kathryn Massey

Podcast cover
Read more
Having grown up ‘on’ the Silver Brumby children’s books series by noted Australian author Elyne Mitchell, my dogged eared copies of the books are testament to my passion for these Australian wild horses from a very early age.  So it was with pleasure that I sat down to interview Kathryn Massey, the President and Founder of the Hunter Valley Brumby Association to find out more about these iconic Australian wild horses and the Associations aims and activities.Kathryn Massey and the Hunter Valley Brumby Association have championed Australian Brumby horses since 2009 and provide for them refuge, rehabilitation, education and training from their sanctuary property located near Stroud NSW.    The Associations main focus (working with Government, National Parks and State Forest departments and other horse charity organisations) is to protect the 3 main wild populations of Brumbies in the NSW Hunter Valley region (in the geographic regions of  Barrington, Nerong and Singleton).   The Association also works to promote the Australian Brumby as an official breed in itself and to raise the breeds profile and popularity amongst the general public, regularly showcasing the Brumby breed at horse shows, agricultural events and farm days across the region. Brumby herds and populations across Australia are certainly a high profile and emotive topic currently, with the case for and against the culling of wild herds receiving much highly charged debate.  Some parties even questioning the horses ‘right to exist’, whilst others want the horses classified as part of our official Australian heritage.  What do you think? More brumby information can be found on The Hunter Valley Brumby Association website at www.hvba.com.au.
