We were moving our horses from their winter pasture to our new ranch. I noticed that one of our horses that we bought last fall wasn't acting right, but being busy in moving I forgot about him. The next day when we were watering the horses I noticed that Trigger was lying down. I watched him and he got up and later he laid down again. During that time of filling the tanks up he had laid down 5 times. This is not normal for a horse to do. Yes they will lie down but when they get up they will not lie right back down again.

I knew Trigger probably had a bad tummy ache. When we were done Blaine and I caught him and we saw he really was looking sick. I listened to his stomach and there wasn't hardly any sound at all. This told us that he was bound up bad. I gave him 20 drops DiGize under the lip and 6 drops each of Peppermint and DiGize on the frog of the front feet. I gave him 6 drops of DiGize in a squirt of Ortho Sport in the palm of my hand and I massaged from his flank down under his stomach to help relax the muscles.

In less then 3 minutes he had a bowel movement and there was an increase of sounds in his stomach. After an hour of walking him around he seemed better. Before we left I gave him 40 drops of DiGize inside his lip because the people we bought him from only de-wormed their horses once a year. So, we were concerned about the worms causing him the stomach problem. I also noticed that he was coughing. We didn't have all our oils with us so the next day when we came down to water and check on the horses, I brought the rest of my oils. Trigger was better but still acted sick so we de-wormed him with 10 oz. of ParaFree. I also applied RC and Melaleuca ericifolia on his chest, Raven and Oregano on the frog of his front feet. I did the RainDrop Technique on his spine with Oregano and Thyme, plus he received DiGize again.

The next day you wouldn't believe that he was the same horse! He had a sparkle in his eyes and his cough was gone. He came up to eat his grain and wouldn't let another horse take his grain. Days before he wouldn't eat and didn't care if they took his grain. The essential oils came to the rescue again in saving the life of this horse!
