Glyphosate and the Equine Endocrine System

Glyphosate Exposure in Horses

At present there is no research on glyphosate exposures specifically for equines. Views on its effects on horses are mostly theory based on observation and studies done on humans, cattle, mice, and chickens. 

Glyphosate has been getting a lot of attention for its connection to cancer, but that’s far from the only health concern related to the weed killer. There is a long and growing list of dangers, but one of the biggest ones that doesn’t get a lot of attention is the fact that it’s an endocrine disruptor.

In fact, the glyphosate-based herbicide Roundup can cause damage to the endocrine system at levels that are legally permitted in drinking water. This is according to a study carried out in Australia by researchers at Flinders University.  They found that Roundup killed the cells that produce progesterone in women, causing their progesterone levels to drop.

A Natural Solution for Your Bitchy Mare & Other Moody Horses

A Natural Solution for Your Bitchy Mare & Other Moody Horses

Interview shared by Laura Stopper-Batts, The Horse Hippie.

Three years ago, I was a presenter at the Horse Expo in Pomona, California.  I had a Horse Hippie booth and gave presentations on Eco-Friendly Horse Care, DIY Ideas for the Horse Owner, and Alternative Methods for Equine Ulcers.

I met many interesting horse people at this expo (it WAS California after all) but I really connected with one in particular and that was Shelly Black.

Shelly hung out at my booth all weekend. Picking my brain about natural horse care. We talked about what kind of harmful substances horses were being treated with for showing, racing, and breeding. We were both horrified by how common the use of Regumate and Medroxy was. We agreed it was time that horses had a safe alternative for balancing their reproductive cycles.

Fast forward three years, and BOY! has Shelly been busy!  I think her product is soooo needed AND effective that, after helping her with product testing, I asked her for an interview for my blog.

Seasonal Mood Swings Coming Soon – Be Prepared!

Millie-serene-spring

Spring means warmer days, blooming flowers… and high horses!

The ever-changing hormones surging throughout the female body can cause a plethora of changes in the way she feels physically, mentally and emotionally. This is the same for humans as for our horses. Do you dread when it’s ‘that time’ for you or for your mare?

Do unbalanced hormones ever create havoc with your attitude or performance?

While we (human) females have hormonal cycles that average 28 days (in our reproductive years), a mare’s cycle is on average 21 days. Women have menstrual cycles that are about 5-7 days long and horses have their Estrus cycle for about 5 days, but usually only from about April through September.

Here’s an important comparison: Women experience pre-menstrual symptoms (irritability, mood changes, tender breasts, menstrual cramps, etc…) for about 1-3 days prior to a menstrual cycle, and then symptoms usually subside once menses begins. Mares experience Estrus for 5-7 days, which is the time when she may become problematic with her attitude and performance.Rearing-Race-Horse

Humans have only 3 types of estrogens, whereas horses have over 20 types.

Are You Having Difficulty Getting Your Mare Pregnant?

A natural and effective solution to balancing and regulating a mares reproductive cycle is Serene By Nature.  Mares may benefit with regular, and healthy cycles, from this unique bio-identical cream.

A healthy cycle is essential to a successful conception and gestation.

Here is a heart warming (and relatable) testimonial from Vanessa regarding her beloved mare Ruby, who is now (Happily!!) nearly 90 days pregnant…

(Be sure to check out her video below!)

We have been on the road traveling with my mare Ruby for several years since she was five.  She had always seemed to have a regular cycle, but would have a very reactive day with erratic behavior.

She was having times where she had very painful cycles and her erratic behavior was getting much worse.

Mascot Millie’s Story

Millie-Serene-Winning

Hello! I’m excited you’ve dropped by!

I have so much to share with you. Oh before I forget, my name is Millie and I am a Taffechan bred mare and my registered name is Taffechan Rhea Dargon. And I have the prestigious honor of being the official Mascot for Serene by Nature cream!

About me, where do I start… Well, between my third and fourth year of life I had 4 different sales to new ‘owners’.

While moving so many times, I met many other horses and started hearing stories of horrible neglect and abuse, and of constantly being ‘sold’ to the next unhappy human.

Millie-adorable-muzzle

I was terrified. I didn’t want to be ‘un-liked’ by my human, and I didn’t want to have to keep moving over and over.

I felt very out of control and unsure of the future, and of humans.

** Be sure you check out my videos down below! I love being a video star and I appreciate folks taking the time to enjoy my YouTube Stardom. Thank you! **
