Our must have in our medication cabinet.

We have been using Nannosil colloidal silver with gold, on ourselves and our animals, for about 5 yrs now. It is one of our "must haves" in our medicine cabinet! Colloidal silver kills bacteria and viruses by destroying the enzymes responsible for cellular respiration, depriving them of the ability to breathe. Lab tests have shown that colloidal silver is toxic to all tested species of bacteria, fungi, protozoa, and parasite eggs and many viruses. Colloidal gold is an anti-inflammatory, improving arthritis, bursitis and tendonitis.
I remember the first time I took it myself, had a nasty infected tooth, looked like a chipmunk. I swished a bit around my mouth and swallowed, then layed down cuz I felt so miserable. Well, I awoke a couple of hrs later feeling so much better, swelling almost completely gone, and I could chew again.
We are always cautious when bringing home animals from auction, you never know what they can bring into your otherwise healthy herd. A while back we brought home what seemed to be a very healthy goat, who ended up breaking out in abcesses, turned out that it was infected with Caseous Lymphadenitis, or CL. CL is contagious and incurable. It rapidly spread thru our goats and sheep. My favorite goat Spring was almost in a constant state of rupture, as one abcess healed another formed. We decided to dose their water troughs with Nannosil, and did that for about a month, it doesn't have a strong taste so it is easy to administer. Anyways, all abcesses healed up, no new ones formed and to this date still no new cases.
Never one to learn lessons easily, once again I bought a Momma sheep with twins, she was favoring her front right hoof, but desperately needed a trim so I thought that was the source of her discomfort. Of course not, Hoof Rot or foot rot is caused by an interaction of 2 different bacterium and is highly contagious.  I sprayed Nannosil on the effected hooves twice a day and put it in a foot bath, it cleared up very quickly and there have been no new occurrences.
And I have not mentioned all of the times we have used it on our horses, noticed more of a difference with my arthritic old girl than when on supplements, has aided in healing many a wound with minimal scarring.
These are just a few instances over many yrs of use, I honestly cannot rave enough about it.  As I said, Nannosil is our first treatment for almost everything, so much so that we became distributors so that we could have access to it. We currently have 500mL, 1L, 4L bottles, as well as wound gel.  Feel free to call or text me for more information. 705 799 6794

New arrival Django 4 yr old gelding

Django is a 4 yr old Arab Saddlebred cross gelding, approx 14 hands. Super nice fella, leads very well, lunges, has been tacked but no bit in mouth. Has been backed once with no issue. He arrived quite late last night and nothing bothered him, I think that he would be a fairly bombproof trail horse with the right finish to his training. His adoption fee is negotiable. Update: Adopted by a wonderful family, Yay!

Our Tomatillo

Our Tomatillo on the special menu board at Hot Belly Mamas!
Obviously one of my great loves is horses, another is music ( a good song is a gift) but my love of food, and more importantly, growing our own food is a passion! We are more than just a rescue.  We also raise gorgeous poultry, all non gmo chicken, duck, turkey and goose. Chicken and duck eggs, and seasonal Veggies when available.  I am so excited that both The Olde Stone Brewery and Hot Belly Mamas, two great restaurants in Peterborough, are using our Tomatillo and trying out some recipes with our duck. It feels great growing food for people to enjoy!
