The only problem is, nobody else knows much about them.
& Eileen established Clark’s Hooves & Feathers in 1995.
They have a small 25 acre farm and are breeders of miniature
horses and emu. They are
members of American Miniature Horse Association, American Miniature
Horse Registry, and the American Emu Association.
The farm is a labor of love. Day to day operations are
handled by Richard
& Eileen, and during the summer months they have the help of
their grandsons. who live in the city, but love to come to the farm in
the summer “to do chores and play with me”.
& Richard chose miniature horses because of their gentle,
affectionate nature, and small size.
Caring for the miniature horse is easy and can be done safely by
a person of any age. The
cost of maintaining a miniature horse is about one-tenth the cost of
maintaining a large horse. They
make ideal pets for children, and are excellent companions for adults,
the handicapped, and senior citizens.
Their farm has show quality horses, breeding stock, and horses
that would make ideal pets and companions.
As a member of the American Emu Association, they take
an active role in an industry that is making headway into the new
millennium as consumers become more familiar with emu products.
The most valuable commodity of the emu is its oil.
Health professionals aware of the healing properties of emu oil
adapt it into homeopathic treatments to temporarily relieve symptoms of
arthritis, reduce bruising and muscle pain, and treat eczema.
Emu oil is anti-inflammatory; it reduces swelling and stiffness
in joints, making it a growing favorite among chiropractors and massage
therapist. Emu oil has been proven to thicken the skin of the elderly by
as much as 14 percent, making it a natural anti-aging tool.
A natural emollient, emu oil is used extensively in moisturizers
and cosmetics because it is highly penetrating, non-comedogenic (will
not clog pores) and is a good emulsifier.
Emu oil products are available in natural product stores or by
direct mail from the producers.
Well I have to go because they are back from the store.
