I am amazed at all the great reviews this book has gotten, and purchased the book based on them. I really wanted to love this book too as I needed a good herbal that was written for the layman and had some base-line dosaging instructions for animals to get me started. However, what I found is a book that is vague, poorly formatted and disorganized. Almost like it was written from a series of notes made over time and then only roughly organized into a book. Vagueness is its biggest problem. For example, one of the key things I wanted to learn was what herbs I should give my horses to deworm them (as opposed to using commercial dewormers). Chapter 13 covers Parasites, and starts off well with a good general introduction to the problems with worms and commercial dewormers, stressing that unlike the commercial dewormers, "Herbs make good friends when it comes to alternative deworming options. We can use them frequently and be nourishing to rather than toxifying our animals." (page 277) BINGO! That is what I wanted! Okay, so what and how much do I give my horse? I have NO IDEA! Under the "Dosaging" section (page 278) the author talks about starting her clients off "at a baseline" but does not say what the baseline is. She does say you should use an herbal dewormer at least once or twice a week, and then suggests more intensive dosage schedules if you have a bad parasite problem. But nothing regarding the actual herbs to use, how much to use per pound of animal, or how dosages might differ between species. On page 285 she has a section entitled "Deworming Herbs". OKAY! NOW I will read what to use and how much for each species of animal, right? WRONG!Read more ›

I think Jenn did a great job in summarizing the missing elements in this book. Before my purchase i specifically asked the author if there would be recipes and ingredient lists for how to make the various remedies that she constantly says to use. She said yes. Instead what i find is a book that 1 is not organized well at all. You have to jump all over the place to piece your info together. 2 it never really tells you how to make your own remedies. Instead it tells you all about the benefits and how we should use her EXPENSIVE products.

If you, like me, are growing a lot of these herbs yourself why would want to purchase them? She leaves the most important how to info out of her book, but repeatedly refers to using her own mixes/products. This is definitely a book written to help you buy and use her products appropriately. It is NOT a book written to help you make your own or make her mixes at a more affordable price.

You can't even look up the ingredient lists to her mixes on her website to compare, or to know what you are feeding your animals before you buy them. Neither are they listed in the book. I am very frustrated because i clearly asked about this before i purchased her book. I let her know we grow our own, that her products were not affordable, and i was looking for a book that would give me the info to make my dewormers and such. A book with the recipes, etc. not just referring to what she is selling because i could not afford to spend several hundred dollars on herbal mixes for my animals. I asked if it included her recipes, etc. She said yes and that is exactly why she wrote this book, so people like myself with out herbal training could have the same knowledge and that there would be recipes included for the recommended treatments. No the recommendation is BUY MY EXPENSIVE STUFF.

I too bought this book hoping to learn from it. Unfortunately I learnt very little.
The author is very good at waffling. She uses a lot of words to say very little.
It is very light on,when it comes to specifics.
And then she chose to use a large font. So it is a big book but it is very disappointing.
What she does say could easliy be condensed into a much smaller book without loss of real content.
Pat Coleby's book Natural Goat Care and others in Pat's series are much more useful.
I learnt a lot from Pat Coleby's book,also purchased on Amazon.
I am sorry I bought this book. And would have loved to return it but the postage was prohibitive.

First, be ready for lots of proselytizing (but maybe you don't find that as wearisome as I do). Second, have very, very deep pockets. Third, be prepared for disorganization, incomplete information, poor formatting, and inadequate binding. Fourth, the philosophy is to raise "hothouse" animals under very unnatural conditions, who will take over your life. Fifth, you'll get a fair amount of misinformation. Sixth, the author admits in this forum that the book is meant to promote her products.

As a goat breeder of 40+ years of outstanding stock, as well as other types of animals, I put an emphasis on hardiness and keeping management as natural as possible (what has been referred to by my vet--who would starve if he had to depend on income from those folks who maintain their animals as I do--as "minimal intervention"). My primary source of useful information is The Complete Herbal Handbook for Farm and Stable which isn't perfect, but costs a lot less, both in the purchase price and the implementation (as well as having a philosophy which makes a lot more sense).
