Mr Moose around.
He was ALWAYS there. Always.
Now he is just a mound of dirt in the side pasture.
With the coming of spring I hope to plant flowers

its time his image goes on the Meadowsweet Herbal

RIP Mr Moose 1986-2013
heavy heart I have to tell the list that my horse, Mr Moose,
was put to rest last night at 7pm.- Jan 31 2012. ( He would have been 27 in
At this time we are not sure if it was a
pedunculated lipoma strangulation or, more than likely,
sudden and severe liver failure.
As many of you
already know, Moose was DX'd with EPM when he was only 4
years old and it was because of him that Meadowsweet Acres
Herbs for Horses was developed. I was already a practicing
herbalist when Moose became ill and I applied my knowledge
to develop formulas to help him thru his treatment, which at
that time , really wasn't any! This was back in the days
when you had to buy big jars of pills and grind them up and
mix them with 'whatever" and try to cram this horrid mess
into your horse. The old timers on the EPM list will
remember our search for the biggest and best pill crushers
we could find.
In time, the compounding companies
developed the Sulfa/pyrithiamine liquid paste that did help
somewhat, but had many side effects and treatment was 9
months or longer. Moose had been treated 3 times over the
course of 4 years. During that time I spent a lot of time
helping him thru the ordeals with herbal formulas. He was
never the best 'taste tester' because he could eat most
anything you fed him, but we learned a lot during those
hope to so many across the country, one of the first to be
dx'd with EPM and one of few who did survive those early
years. So many horses did not. He went on to perform for
many many years, from dressage to musical freestyle, trail
riding , eventing, and foxhunting. He never let his size,
his color or his blue eyes stop him from doing what HE
wanted to do. People loved him, children loved him.
I still remember the german
judge that told me after a dressage test, "he is NO
dressage horse, he is a MANS horse". excuse me ? what
the hell is a MAN'S horse.
Many said you could hear my
cursing all the way back to the trailers…lolololol… good
heavens never INSULT my Mr Moose, how dare they !
He was gentle and kind and took care of me for many
He will be missed dearly and our
barn will not be the same.
