About Us

Horse Nut, Pet Collector (currently at 8 fur friends, well now 7, something ate my Banana (kitty)--is there a 12-step program for that?) , Horseshoer, Farrier to those of you with a more discriminating vocabulary, and the boring stuff-- Registered Nurse, Board Certified Holistic Health Practitioner, Main Ass at Jack's Mule Barn...."Woman!"  to my husband....My Indian name is Squats-under-horse,  yadayada...My Super power:  Able to scoop up a huge pile of horse apples in a single swoosh without dropping a single apple--I don't even need a cape! My Husband, Mark and I live in Big Sky Country, Montana, on a nice little spread we call THE HEALTH RANCH.   At the Health Ranch, we both innovate new products and ideas to make life out in the country and town more manageable with safe, natural products, made with Diatomaceous earth and other minerals mined in Utah and Wyoming...feel good again about what you use on your body and your animals! I started used DE years ago for my horses...as a natural de-wormer and for ticks.  I would spend 3 hours picking ticks off of my Gelding Cam, he must have been so tasty!  The DE worked like a charm, I didn't have to rotate wormers, flies were less, animals happy, although they do look like they are snorting coke when you feed it to them, white powder on thier noses, the stuff worked like a charm, and now I am DE dealer! We use it ourselves internally, externally, on all of our critters, around our acreage.  It truly is God's Dirt!  So as Dirt Evangalists we are here to tell you the "Good News!"  There really is something Natural, Safe and Organic that works around your Farm, Home and Ranch, and its been right under our noses! Check out our sister site www.thrushgenius.com  Thrush has been something I have dealt with as a Professional Horseshoer for 15 years and frustrated, with HOW, and the manner in which we treat it, and the fact that most of the stuff kills thrush on contact, but, doesn't solve the issues of WHY it's there in the first place, and doesn't keep it from coming back, AND without damaging live tissue.I've worn the purple and green stains, burnt my eyes as it splashed in my contacts, and frustrated, only to come back and see that the case was worse. So we had a hard a winter here in Montana, and I had cabin fever, and was thinking about THRUSH, and how could I infuse oxygen into those dark cracks...because every horseshoer worth his salt, should know that the easiest, most natural, abundant thing on the planet kills thrush...oxygen.  Expose those foul smelling, nasty black goo, creating bacteria to oxygen and they can't live!  So I started to experiment and thus, Thrush Genius was created!  First you have to dry out that crack, then if we have to deal with the fact its gonna get wet again as soon as you put the horse back in his corral, and make sure that crack, when it gets wet again, then receives oxygen, once we have those factors in place...we gotta heal that ouchy tissue...yes, I know...GENIUS!  And you thought all I did was shoe horses...and sweat all over your stall mats....sheez....Happy Trails!

OH...update, I used it to keep the chest flies off the horses...wow! No flies!  Great stuff!"  M. Kampfy, Bozeman, MT
