I passed the Benji torch on to my son Brandon on The Today Show. To watch, click above.
Far and away the best lettuce we’ve ever grown in our raised bed garden. And over the past 3-4 weeks, before this photo was taken, Kathleen had picked 6 or 7 full lettuce hampers from these plants (we eat a LOT of salad). Every morning-after they looked as if they had never been picked. Simply amazing. And sooo tasty. Vivid proof that all our soils, horses, chickens, cows, goats, sheep and ourselves need is to have those missing essential minerals replaced and everything gets better.
Next – tomatoes that sink!
I only recently learned that if you put a tomato in a full sink of water and it floats it is woefully deficient in minerals, nutrients and taste. If it sinks Read More→
Time has flown by at the speed of light. It doesn’t seem possible that it’s been four years since Miss Saffron stepped off the trailer, an as yet unhandled mustang from the wild who had never willingly touched or been touched by any human. And she was very pregnant. We were told by the BLM that she would probably deliver in May. That was March 17th. Three days later Miss Firestorm was born. A solstice baby.
I worried about that look in mama’s eye. I had seen it before with Noelle, our first pregnant mustang. Read More→
Chris Lombard, world renowned natural trainer, clinician, and author of Land of the Horses, remembers Cash:
I remember reading your newsletter while standing in the middle of the Equine Affaire in Massachusetts one cold Saturday in November. As I finished it I just stood there. Hundreds of people were walking around me, looking at the trade show exhibits, talking about horses and horse stuff. I was floored. I couldn’t move. I was stunned. I felt it all. And here this was, all this horse show stuff going on around me. All this stuff that is trying to help people get to what you felt with Cash.
As I often do, I need to kind of go away and be on my own to process something like this for myself before getting back to it in the real world. I went for a walk in the rain soaked woods the next morning with my dog Matea. There was snow on the ground, a half inch or so, and it was raining and cold. I thought about you and Cash. And I came to this. Read More→
“Before reading The Soul Of A Horse, I was about to give up on our horses because of the many misconceptions that I had regarding their care and how to be in a relationship with them. I am now filled with hope and have a renewed sense of purpose in partnering with our horses for a meaningful journey through the rest of our lives together. Yours was the first book that I’d read for recreational “entertainment” in literally years! It turned out to be the most beneficial and therapeutic read I have experienced, out of a host of unfinished self-help books collecting dust on my shelves. Who knew? I’m looking forward to Born Wild.” – Kirk Durbin
“Just wanted to drop you a short note, Joe, to tell you how much your work for horses is affecting us, and I’m sure so many people. It’s the first time I have ever written to any author, but I wanted you to know that of all the natural horsemen and trainers I have studied over the last three years [and I have studied most of them], I like your approach the best. I just wanted to make sure you know what a huge difference you are making in so many people’s lives, what a blessing. God bless, Donna Stedman”
