On April 2014 ANZAC Day*, Felix the horse was discovered to have a horrific leg injury – the result of being tangled up in electric fencing tape.
Since it was a public holiday, Bianca (the owner) could only Face-Time** the vet and then treat Felix as instructed. Fortunately Bianca’s Vet was able to come out the next day and treat Felix. On assessment by the Vet, Felix was given 12 days to prove if he could conquer the injury, or the prognosis for him was not good.
Bianca began a regime of feeding Turmeric Golden Paste to Felix, and also followed the Vet’s instructions to the letter for his wound.
After 12 days, the Vet was so impressed by Felix’s healing that she asked Bianca for the Turmeric Golden Paste recipe to pass on to her other clients.
Bianca was incredibly tenacious and dedicated in tending to Felix twice daily and doing everything that had to be done – as well as juggling her own life and her young family.
Felix was ready to have turmeric applied to his wound after a few weeks, and was still receiving twice daily turmeric feeds, PLUS Vet treatment. Bianca used a simple mix of Turmeric and Coconut Oil as a wound application.
One year has passed and Felix is not lame and everyone is very pleased with his progress.
