I watched Doobie deteriorate over 5 years of owning him to the point where the EPSM symptoms were very advanced and it was extremely distressing for him. He was difficult and sometimes dangerous to handle . Two months of use of the The All Weather Breather has changed my horse’s life, the muscle tightness, stiff legged gait, tension, colic and aggression have gone. He is like a normal horse enjoying herd life. I’ve never really known the true horse inside his diseased body and I am so excited about the future.

Today the new pony went out with the herd. When she arrived her and Starlight bonded very quickly. Starlight has spent most of the day keeping the rest of the herd away from the pony. When I went to bring Starlight in she was neighing and kicking her stable door - very upset that she was not with the pony. She did not have the breather on today as it was the day off. I thought “What shall I do? I know …” I put the Equine Breather on and let her out on line to re-establish my leadership. I was so surprised, it took only about 10 mins and she was so relaxed. I brought her back in and tied her up and groomed her and rasped her feet. Fantastic ! I did want to share this with you and to share with other people.

The boys are doing v well with their breathing - no excess mucus - itching has decreased dramatically and their coats are lovely and soft and shiny - they look so well. Jack is now seemingly pain free with his sinus 's - he now loves having his face massaged gently and I can touch his ears with no problem. He still has itchy nostrils after a session but he looks so much more relaxed. Poor thing I never even thought he had blocked sinus's - so glad we are doing the breathing. Need the All Weather Breathers as the weather has now gone v wet and the Grazing breathers get v wet v quickly. Will let you know how we get on - plan to use both types of breathers according to weather. My breathing is coming on slowly - I can tell when I have gone back to breathing though my mouth - my stomach aches, dry mouth and feel drained!!! Its a work in progress.

We have had no rain, other than a few brief showers, since last year in June and we have no grass growing, lots of dust and very dry conditions. Dr. Boots the 22 yr old TB was doing ok on grass hay - but then it was gone (and scarce this year too) and I started him on bits of alfalfa hay ...and between that and the dryness and dusty-ness has aggravated his COPD quite badly in the last couple of weeks... I treat him herbally and homeopathically but nothing seems to be working too well. He was coughing a very deep cough and passing air (anally) just standing...and heaving quite strenuously. After putting on the Grazing Breather (after he tried to rub it off) his breathing seemed to calm down... he only coughed once this evening... and trotted in from the field (quickly) with no cough or wheeze (he had it on all evening while grazing) The heave line on his abdomen seems to be not so pronounced and is not being used as long or protractedly as it was earlier today. His breathing is still shallow and quick but is definitely different than before. So he will use it until he doesn't need it or until it rains. 5 September Boots is doing much better....I have some Bronchial herbs and a special Homeopathic Dust for him and it seems to be doing the trick for him as well as the Grazing Breather... He certainly doesn't mind it on.... but is rather rough on it. I am sure that the GB - has contributed to his feeling much better and I will continue to use it. His breathing is much more normal (for an old heavey horse) and his coughing is very minimal (tonight anyway) I am a firm believer that the GB has helped Boots overcome this distressing time.

Some time ago I bought your booklet on Equine Breathing and started 1N with a new horse, an 18 year old Connemara x TB mare (Tamdhu). Over the last 8 months we have got rid of the shoes, grown new hooves, disposed of the rugs and she has adapted to living out 24/7. She has changed from being grumpy and bossy to pleasant and calm. Elder daughter has been working with the youngster (4 in September) and this evening I rode Tamdhu and daughter rode Millie - just a walk down a stony track, round a small circle and back up again. Millie is doing well and has been very calm, never had any trouble putting on a saddle and bridle etc. So we had a little trot for the last stretch home which Millie found, possibly, exciting (?) and for the first time ever bucked and bronc-ed three times, the third time daughter came off. Millie charged off, Tamdhu also panicked but luckily for me never races off. I cut up the side track to our house and Millie, on noticing, turned and followed. After daughter had picked herself up we took the ponies into the round pen and she climbed back on, walked and trotted, etc. Whilst she was doing that, Tam stood so close to me and pressed her nostril against my bare arm and just stood there. I could feel the pressure from her, it seemed to be she was deliberately seeking to do 1N on herself. I couldn't believe it. So when she eased away I did a bit more on the other nostril for her. I presume the antics from Millie had unsettled her? Would like to hear your views on this. Anyway, it reminded me about 1N which has been pushed to the back of my mind with work load so tonight I got back on your website and am going through all your articles.
The Grazing Breathers are fantastic - we are all going to enjoy these - did first session yesterday evening. Teach took to it like a duck to water - when I removed it this morning he followed me from the top of the field to the gate and stood as if to say 'I want more' Jack kept trying to get it off with his legs, on me, on the ground - so we do his sessions supervised so that I can move him when he is doing that and leave him be when he is grazing. His session this morning was much better - very little trying to dislodge it. And we did a session in the stable with him in the Grazing Breather and what a difference - he loved it and will soon be looking for the sessions and the Grazing Breather as Teach is doing. Both are now off antihistamines and are only a little itchy - will be interesting to see what happens, if anything, ie clearing. I think Jack has major blocks in his sinus's - that seems to be his main problem - his sarcoid has dropped off since we have been doing the 1N so I have high hopes that his sinus's will be clear and possibly pain free very soon. Teach and Jacks relationship has changed - Teach is much more pleasant to Jack - he never was brutal to him but always moved him on or away from me - last week I stood in the field with both of them by me stroking there noses - I was ecstatic. All visitors to the yard remark on how chilled and laid back my 2 are - they are more confident and as a result are becoming happier. I have treated my self to the Asthma dvd to learn more for me. We will all be breathing properly by the end of it all. Thank you - so glad you developed this technique and I will pass the message on when I can.
