We have received so many comments from our customers about their experiences with our products, and we'd like to share some of these with you.
I wanted to write to say how impressed I've been with the Organic Echinacea Leaf Plus product.
I have been feeding it to my horses for the past 18 Months. I first started using it as it was recommended by the owner of our Grazing facility when my horse started to have a bit of a clearing cough every time I started to exercise him. Within a week of starting him on it the cough went away & stayed away, until we got through the spring & summer season. I decided to try to take him off the Echinacea and within two weeks the same cough was back again! So I started back with the Echinacea, and same result, within a week, the cough went away again. So I left him on it permanently until just a few weeks ago when our normal supplier said they have had trouble getting hold of it, so we ran out, and, now my horse has his little cough back! Dawn, WellingtonHi Jackie,
Oakley is still going well with the Free Move Plus, not only have I noticed how much better he moves and feels to ride but the farrier was here last week and commented how much better he stands and lets him pull his legs and shoulders while shoeing, he would "put up" with it for a while then start to fidget or "remove " his legs!!
The "Sneeze Free" product appears to be helping with his reaction to fly bits, the season here has fully started so am getting him dosed before it does, those that he has had so far have caused little or no swelling.
What I always like about horses and herbs is there is no placebo effect, they dont know what they are taking , he's quite happy with the smell of the cider apple vinegar which is great for a horse who can smell Bute at a hundred paces and flatly refuses to take the stuff, if he has to have it I have to make it into a paste and syringe it down his throat!!
Many thanks and keep up the great products and good service,Caroline and Oakley
Free Mover Plus Turned them into 5 year olds!
I am so happy with your product, i have seen such an amazing differnce in our 26yr old gelding that i have now put a couple of our other older ponys on the Free Mover as well.I have some younger children riding these ponys and it is wonderful to see them enjoying their work again, and being able to use their vast experience to teach these kids the joys of riding and owning a horse. Regards Vanessa Christensen
The Free Mover Plus I recently tried for my older horses turned them into 5 year olds. Could not believe the difference. Highly recommend it.The mares are so much more playful with the younger ones, now appear so much happier and confident within themselves. I have had my mares for approx 12 years and they have never been so happy since I started your herbs. They are approx age 20. Cheers for the miracle potion.
Calming Herbs for Horses
I was just amazed at how quickly The Herbal Calmer took effect. My horse is a 17hh 3 year old warmblood and he's now so relaxed and happy. It's brilliant.
On the weekend we went trekking and I used the calmer Plus with great results.
My young Arab "Mars" went super on 20 mls in the morn.
Well done! Now I can seek advice 24 hours a day. Also, I have to compliment you on your fantastic products. I used the calming herbs on a highly-strung horse. She was hard to catch, feed, groom and ride. After feeding her with the herbs daily, I could do anything with her! When this mare was about to be flown to England, I fed her some calming herbs and she went into the float like a lamb. I was really pleased. Well done Brookby Herbs, keep up the fantastic products.

Hi, Just wanted to say I have been buying lots of your products which I love and they are the only products I use. I went from buying a lovely TB who completely lost the plot in his first ODE, where it was a nightmare. Since I purchased your Herbal Calmer and started using that, the last couple of times we have been out, he has been a dream. I have even had others comment on "What a different horse". Once again wonderful product, keep up the good work.

Herbs for Moody Mares
Thanks for the Steady Mare . It is amazing how quickly we can see the difference in our mare when we run out. K Sorenson, New Plymouth
Just a note to say what a difference I've found in my mare since she had her first bucket of Steady Mare. When I first looked at the herbs I thought "no way will she eat that" because she doesn't like any other calmers I have tried, but she loves it. Her overall outline is softer & she is working a lot better. Normally she hates the clapping, music and loud speakers at shows but I have just got home from the NZ Grand National Champ Show at Rangiora where she went very well.
No More "mareishness"! (from Tried & Tested Horse & Pony Magazine, March 2003)
My cheeky standardbred gelding thinks he's "the man", especially in spring. He can get a bit too bossy and protective. I tried "Steady Mare" last year after a friend suggested chaste berries as a natural option to help calm things down. I hunted the internet and came across Brookby Herbs. They have an excellent product and deliver promptly.
I have been using Freemover for around a month and there has been such a great improvement on my old boy!!! I have now got someone else using it too!!!
We have had really great results from the Organic Free Mover Liquid, our dog is a 15&1/2yr old Lab and he is doing so well this winter with the use of this. I would now like to use it on for my 2 older goats who are arthritic. They are already on glucosamine as well. Many thanks Jude Eskrit
Herbs For Cushings
I have used Free Mover for an aged horse with great success (and recommended it to friends)
I purchased some of you Organic Free Mover at the Pet Expo to give to one of my bitches who had hurt the muscle in her hip rough and tumbling with another dog. I am absolutely thrilled with the results and she went out at one of the shows yesterday and took Best of Breed over an entry of about 20 Cockers. She is only 17 months and beat a number of older mature dogs – one a Grand Champion. She is now over half way to her title. I will now also give the Free Mover to the dog with the stress fracture.Many thanks Helen
One of my working stock dogs came down with a severe lameness problem about 3 years ago. After many tests and trips to specialists I was told it would take a $5000 exploratory surgery to 'try' and find out what was causing the problem and if I didn't do it, he'd never work stock again. Instead, I decided to try using some natural medications and products. After a year of trying different things to no avail, I came across Brookby Herb’s Organic Free Mover for Dogs. Within 4 months of using it, Boots was able to play ball again without pulling up lame. Within 6 months he could work stock lightly. He's been on it ever since and although he can't work stock on a daily basis, he can now help me out as an 'extra' hand when needed without pain and he can also still enjoy a good game of ball! Thanks Brookby Herbs!
About the same time that I started using Brookby Herbs Organic Free Mover on one of my dogs with a lameness problem, I decided to also try some of their herbal remedies for my retired horse. Just something to give him an extra 'boost' as he aged. I started with Herbal Health and then add Echinacea in the fall to give him a good start in the winter as I live in the Rocky Mountains and our winters are very harsh. Biarritz is currently 32 years old and doing great. I firmly believe it's the Brookby Herbs supplements that have kept him from even getting the sniffles!! Thanks Brookby Herbs!
Sneeze Free is working well with one of our ponies this is his second year and he began to take it this year on 1st march (just like my son with his hayfever medicine) and there has been a huge improvement with allergy symptoms, his eyes don’t run as much and his breathing is easier, so much so he does not take any prescribed drugs anymore therefore his quality of life is now good. Many thanks for dealing with my last order so promptly it came very quickly which was great. I wish more people would consider natural products as they are good for us so why not our pets!!
Hi! I just wanted to say THANK YOU for your fantastic products- I was using Free mover and saw results SO fast!
Herbs for Stiff Joint Problems
"I have a 22 year old Cleveland Bay/TB gelding called Saltan. He had an uneven gait, especially at trot, stiffness, calcification of joints and has been diagnosed as suffering from osteo-arthritis (especially around the fetlock joints). The vet said it was the worst case of arthritis he had ever seen. We purchased Free Mover from you in May for our "stiff old man" who by the way is doing great. Greg took him for the first ride since he'd been put on the mixture and found no uneven gait at a trot and a real willingness to go. I have noticed that he is now coming straight down the hill when we call him instead of zigzaging like he use to. He now has a real brightness in his eyes - and he doesn't look like an old shaggy pony (he is 16.2hh) anymore as his coat is even softer and shiner. Thank you for your wonderful product.
Herbs for Healthy Hooves and a Shiny Coat
I've been using your herbs Natural Hoof & Coat Conditioner for the past 2 months and can not believe the coat condition on my horse now. Shining and vital where as before it was dull and rough. I am amazed at the difference!! And yes, your more than welcome to quote me on my comment about your herbs because I believe that they have made such a difference to my horses appearance that I've been telling everyone I know about them. People who know him do not believe he is the same horse. He is a dark horse and now he has gone really black, and shiny. He also is unrugged so his coat is doing really well. L.Strachan, New Plymouth, New Zealand
My Ben, a tb/clydie cross gelding, is a 'herbal' horse. I use three supplements as a regular and essential part of his diet - Free Mover: Free Mover Plus: Natural Hoof and Coat Care. Because I can't feed Ben every day, I use both types of Free Mover in each feed. From the Free Mover Plus he gets the benefit of the cider vinegarbase, as well as the immediate effects of the Devil's Claw into his bloodstream. From the hebal Free Mover mix, he builds up a longer-lasting effect from the Devil's Claw and the other herbal ingredients.As for the Natural Hoof and Coat Conditioner - Ben is barefoot. Need I say more.
Herbs for Horse Allergies and Hayfever
Just thought I'd give you some feedback on your products. My TB gelding started having allergic reactions to something late last year. I started him on the Echinacea Organic Plus and although he still has the occasional reaction to the allergen the effects are nowhere near as bad as they first were and he hasn't had a single cold or viral infection since. Six months ago the same horse was diagnosed with ringbone in a front pastern. I began using Free Mover and within 4 weeks he was sound. He is now back in full work, jumping and competing-something I didn't think he'd be able to do again. I just wanted to say how much of a fan I am of your products and I will continue to tell friends about you and your wonderful herbal products. Thanks very much.
The sneeze freeze is making a huge difference to my big man, thank you so much for recommending it.Your products are fantastic. L. Nalder
Herbs for Coughs & Colds
Recently one of my horses developed the most awful cough. I was hoping it would just right itself but after a week he was really no better so I bought the herbal Immune Booster plus and within 4days he was better.
Hi Jackie I wanted to give you some feedback on your Immune Booster which I purchased for my horse. After two days of treatment, his rather disgusting snotty nose had totally cleared, and another two days following this, his cough has gone too. Thanks for a fantastic product that truly does work wonders. I will be recommending it to everyone. Regards Nicki
Herbs for Stiff Joints in Dogs
I'm absolutely thrilled and impressed with the results of Organic Free Mover". We have an 8 year old shepherd who was in a terrible state. The vet had put him on a course of drugs for his stiff hips and basically it was completely knocking him out at night. The poor dog was so sedated he was wetting the bed and getting very distressed. We were all terribly upset watching him go down hill with no dignity left until my daughter suggested I try your herbal extracts. We have been amazed with the results. He is a completely different dog, up playing with the cat and running around like a young pup again. I wouldn't have believed it was possible. Well done and thank you.
I heard about free mover from friends of mine that have horses and they put me onto Organic Free Mover for my 11 year old dogHe was starting to get the first signs of arthritis which is what hes father suffered from as well.We had to get his father put down years ago because it became to much for him.I was dredding having to go through that again.
I tried different joint medications from specialist pet stores and thought Free mover was my last try.To be honest I didnt think it was going to work and doubted the effects it would have however my old dog is running round like hes years younger he even has crazy days when he thinks hes the same age as our young dog whos 3 and they jump around playing together.
I think without free mover this would not of happened and I have been telling people about it and what a difference it has made to our family. Thanks So much A Clingin
Your Organic Free Mover was of great benefit our old dog Buffy in her last years. We thank you for your promptness in supplying us when we placed our order and for the useful tips in your newsletters. We wish your business every success and would have no hesitation in recommending your company to others pet owners.

Herbs for Dog Grooming
I've been using Organic Shine and have had excellent results. I reverted to a half dose and noticed the skin gradually worsened again so shall keep going on original dose.Thank you. H. Nilsen, Merksamtreu Kennel,. KeriKeri.
We have a boxer who I would describe as incredibly exciteable and energetic, always wanting attention and games. Unfortunately she goes from morning till night which wears us all out. I tried using the Organic Calmer in the hope of getting a bit of rest and I have to say it worked perfectly. She happily takes the drops then quite quickly lies down and has a rest for a while. It has been a miracle for us all.
Bought the allergy-hay fever herb for our older gelding in 3 days a different horse. Stopped shaking head, not lethargic any more. Will be able to ride again. Also hoof and coat herb hair is shiny and so soft. Was first time we ordered, love it! Thank you! Deb Raymond USA
