    Question Raspberry leaves: How much to feed?

    I have read that straight raspberry leaves assist in helping "moody mares"...I am just wondering how much should be fed at a time/daily?

    My mare is not used for breeding, showing, etc. she is just very mare-y, and I am hoping this would be a good choice to try to "help" her out with her "mare-ness".

    Depends on the quality of the product your getting and whether your feeding it dry, as a tincture or something else...

    Yes it does - go do a search on them - I have a friend use them on a stallion too that she feel she saw a response from. So not just for the ladies lol.

    I give my gelding one scoop (the kind that comes with supplements). I guess it's equal to 2-3 tablespoons

    I THINK someone gave an amount in my thread : "the freebie mare is very verrry crazy" in the training section. I know there's tons of pages, but it's in at most the first 5 I believe. Oh jeez, I'll just go find it. I've got the monday lazies.

    This is from my thread, this response given from MFTX4 I would ask her for some in-depth knowledge of raspberry leaves.

    This is a Speaking from expearince, and decades of family history with herbs and
    natural remedies, I do know one that works WONDERS.

    It's called "Raspberry Leaf" , it's available in Lose Leaf form, best place is
    Mountain Rose Herbs in Oregon, order it online through their site in the
    'cut' form. $7.75 an pound. Average horse usually get about 5lbs a year
    and it's easy, just a good handfull daily. And soon you will never know
    when she is in season....

    It helps to properly align the female organs, and naturally balances the
    hormones....plus it's completely safe.

    Also , for a book. I highly recomend "Complete Holistic Care and Healing
    For Horses." it's written by one of the best holistic vets in the world.

    Oh and if you don't want to get it through MountainRose Herbs, the stuff
    is available in pellet form under the lable "Mare Magic" , but keep in mind
    the pellet form is less effective and has lost a lot of it's nutriants through
    the prossesing into the pellet form.

    So that's why I recomend the 'lose leaf' cut form of it, it's much better in
    quality. Specially when ordered through a place like Mountain Rose Herbs.
    Or anywhere else that sells bulk herbs.

    This isfrom another forum that I'm on. Many people swear by natural remedies. For the price it could well be worth trying. Smartpac also sells natural herbs for a variety of things.
