SeaBuck Complete Equine Supplement


A new product arrived in the mail and I'm excited to try it out!  It's SeaBuck Complete and it is a health supplement for horses.

I know I've mentioned before that I'm a big believer in supplements for my family and my animals.  I can't wait to start our horse on this one.  In fact, after reading the health benefits that come from this little berry, I'm looking into the human version as well.

SeaBuck is a liquid supplement so it's easy to add it right in the daily grain.  It's made from sea buckthorn berries and seeds which have been used as a health supplement for thousands of years by humans.  Sea buckthorn is full of antioxidants, carotenoids, healthy oils (Omega 3,6, 7 and 9 fatty acids), and contains more than 190 biologically active compounds.

SeaBuck is good for digestive health, skin and coat, performance, and joint mobility.  As I use this product, I'll be sharing my personal experience.

What do you use as a supplement?

Horse Show - June 2013 (pic heavy)

Photos of our 4-H Fun Show in June 2013

This was our first time using our new awning at a horse show.  We loved being able to have a shady place to sit during the long, hot, sunny day.  We were also amused to discover  that our horse, Bell, loved the awning and would get under it with us while resting between classes.  It was nice that she was also able to enjoy the shade with us.

Bell was such a good girl all day.  Win or lose (there was some of both) we had a great day!

Look Twice by M. Garzon - Book Review

Look Twice by M. Garzon is the sequel to the book Blaze of Glory.  While I haven't read the first book, I found that Look Twice can stand on its own as a novel.

One aspect of the book revolves around the main character, Tea, and her romance with Jaden.  It's intriguing because their relationship has caused an issue with their families.  I don't think that I've read about a romance with this angle before and it made me think about how I viewed the issue.  I don't want to give any spoilers though.

There is also discussion of blended families and the hope and anticipation as Tea and Seth, her twin brother, try to find their birth father.

I really enjoyed that the book was set in the horse world, since we love horses (especially our Bell).  Much of the action took place with backgrounds of barns, polo fields, competitions, and training.  It was very realistic and showed a love of horses.

I found the book to be well written and well edited.  It's incredibly distracting to read a book with editing and grammar errors.  I'm happy to report that I didn't notice any problems.

The book is intended for older teens and women.  I agree with that assessment.  There  weren't any graphic  scenes in the book but it is clear that there is a sexual relationship between characters.  I wouldn't allow my 12 year old to read it, but I would be comfortable with my 19 year old reading it.

Overall, I enjoyed Look Twice very much and I'd like to go back and read the original book as well.

Here is what the back cover says:
Blood is thicker than water. I didn't understand that expression when I was a kid. I only knew that I was closer to my brother Seth than to anyone else in the world. He was the calm to my storm, the light to my dark. We were tied to the rest of our complicated family by bonds beyond blood—love, loyalty, convenience—but as it turns out, the pull of blood is strong. Maybe even strong enough to tear me away from the person with whom I shared my very first breath.

Pics of Our Stay at the Caboose Motel

Here are some pictures from our stay at the Caboose Motel in Avoca, NY.  

It was fun to stay in such a unique place and the manager was very friendly and helpful.  The caboose wasn't luxurious but it was clean and an adventure to stay in.
