SPOILER ALERT! YELLOWSTONE SEASON 4 EPISODE 1 & 2
It’s the day so many of us have been long awaiting for…the season 4 premiere of Yellowstone aired on Sunday. Episode 1 & 2 kept the majority of us on the edge of our seats, but there was a specific scene that I personally resinated with. John Dutton’s doctors advised him to take warm baths a couple times a day to help with his healing after being wounded multiple times at the end of season 3.
John however, took that advise and put his own spin on it…he saddled up one of his horses, achingly pulled himself up in the saddle, and loped off through the valley towards the Big Sky Country mountains. His son Kacey noticed and immediately saddled up his horse to find his dad. When Kacey found John, he was peacefully soaking in one of the natural hot springs on their land (that must be nice). Kacey then joined his dad to listen to some of that John Dutton wisdom and he said something that made me have a revelation….John Dutton would be a Silver Lining Herbs customer.
“I think God or nature…whatever you want to call it, gave us all these places, these herbs, these minerals, this mud…all these things to fix what happens to us.”
The king of the Yellowstone Ranch himself believes in the natural healing powers herbs! So I developed a list of 5 Silver Lining Herbs products I think John Dutton would use.
If I were a betting woman, I would say that horses that ride consistently through rocky mountains would appreciate any help that they can get when it comes to their feet & bone health.#12 Feet & Bone Support for Horses is designed to support your horses structurally from the ground up, from maintaining healthy organized hoof growth, to supporting bones and hard tissue throughout the feet, legs, shoulders, hocks, spine and hips.
Not only is John Dutton and his hired hands riding horses through the Montana mountains on a consistent basis, but now John is getting into the performance horse business, which means lots of out state horses will be coming up to the Yellowstone. I don’t know about you, but my midwestern lungs have a hard time adjusting to higher elevations and it’s very easy for me to become winded and out of breath. The herbs in #22 Respiratory Support for Horses help maintain normal respiratory function, and may be beneficial in supporting normal recovery after strenuous activity, helping maintain the normal integrity and function of the lungs, supporting normal mobilization of invading toxins, & assisting the body in combating environmental pollutants.
You know when you’re a cowboy or cowgirl in the rocky mountains, your horse is bound to pick up some scrapes and cuts along the way. But never fear, Equisalve is here! Equisalve is an all natural salve with ostrich oil. It is used for galls, open wounds, scratches, and rashes. Useful in thrush, hoof and foot care, helps fight fungal infection. May also support natural hair growth.
If there’s one thing that is very evident about John Dutton and the Yellowstone Ranch in general…appearances matter. That’s why John will have Hemp Seed-Coconut Oil in his feeding regime. It is a great source of Omega 3 fatty acid which are vital to everyday health, strong muscles and healthy joints. It contains antioxidants and increased palatability that horses love. This product also may be beneficial in supporting the body’s natural response to inflammation as well as maintaining the health of the skin, joints, immune system, and cardiovascular system.
As stated above, John is now getting involved in the world of competition performances horses and with that comes some maintenance. You want your equine athletes to feel top notch especially during a heavy competition and travel season. Inflammaid for Horses is formulated to support the body’s natural response to inflammation. #9 Inflammaid may be beneficial in supporting the body’s efforts to recover and ease discomfort associated with normal daily exercise and activity. Inflammaid may also help in easing aches and discomfort caused by training and competition.
And there you have it! A well thought out list of Silver Lining Herbs products John Dutton would have on the Yellowstone Ranch.
