Letters from Readers

 

July 2013 issue  

 

Dear RMR:

     Just wanted to say “Thank You” for running the story, “Me and My Shadow” [May 2013]. I thought it was one of the best, most moving horse stories I’ve ever read.

     This world need more people like Kathe Mensik and her family!

Sincerely,

—Thomas Bode, Augusta , MT

 

Dear RMR:

      That Party girl also causes misty eyes! [“Let’s Party”; RMR June 2013]

      For what it’s worth, here is our old Cherokee treatment for suspected liver problems: thistle heads.

      I’ve seen horses go out of their way to eat them and I let my horses eat them when out riding. The time for thistle blooming is the time when a horse needs that help.

      After foaling one time, my black Morgan mare seemed listless. My veterinarian, Bob White (not the quail), drew blood. It did show something slightly wrong.

      I then remembered what I had been raised with — gather 3/4 bloom thistle heads. She scarfed them down…every day. The vet re-checked her in a week, and found that all signs of liver trouble were gone.

      From then on I remembered to let my horses go off the trail while riding to delight in thistle heads!

      Don’t forget, a horse seems to know what plants it needs.

— Harold Wadley, St. Maries , ID
