Mickey Young: Owner

Mickey Young, owner and developer of Silver Lining Herbs, has been deeply involved with animals all his life. After a rodeo career that spanned competitor (11-time NFR qualifier in rough stock) and stock contractor (seven times to the NFR), Mickey began focusing on the vast herbal knowledge he’d accumulated apprenticing to his parents and on his own. This resulted in the creation of Silver Lining Herbs, a formalization of something Mickey had already been doing for years – supporting hundreds of his own animals and his friends’ with various custom blends of superb-quality powdered herbs. Through Mickey’s hours of endless study and hands-on experience there are now over 50 Silver Lining formulas designed to promote natural health for horses and dogs.
