Herbs - Feeding Rosemary

This is a pleasant smelling herb used in many different oils and preparations for human use.  It is a mediterranean plant and enjoys dry, poor soil.  This is another herb I have in my garden! 

This herb seems to have a wide range of uses.  Adding it to a daily feed for the horses could provide a whole host of benefits.  

Bear in mind that the essential oils can be detected in blood tests!
