Give Dad some Pampering for Father's Day!

Need a quick gift for Father's Day and Dad has everything? Dad works hard and his hands are rough, he needs a good long refreshing Shower? Give him the gift of Pampering!

Perfectly Posh just released two new products for the man in your life!

 "Chilly Willie" is a super refreshing body scrub, with the scents of Menthol, Bergamot and Sandalwood, bursts on his skin in the shower and cools after a long day out in the sun or a strenuous workout. A gentle scrub with its Bali Sea Salt gets rid of those dead skin cells and softens rough patches.  Witch Hazel calms the skin and gets rid of impurities and the man of your life comes out of the shower refreshed and squeaky clean!

Now those Hands...Calluses from lots of manual work or lifting weights? Now we know us girls love our hand creams but here's one new just for the man in your life (of course you'll love it too, just like all of our Big Fat Yummy Hand Creams), but this one is industrial strength for the harshest of conditions and the roughest of hands. 

Concentrated Shea Butter from our "Shea Sisterhood Suppliers" sinks into skin and nourishes, Hops, yes you heard that right, it's not only for beer, it soothes and comforts rough and irritated skin, Basil is in it to condition and Birch Sap quenches thirsty skin and nourishes with essential minerals and vitamins. This non greasy formula is made without parabens, skins in super quick to let you get back to work in no time and best of all it's VEGAN.

Both items priced under $20, make an excellent gift for Dad or any other man in your life.  You can find them in my Posh Store .

As a Disclaimer, I am not the writer of the below Article, it has been written by another rescue. But it applies to us at The Golden Carrot as well. We are not all equal, that's why Donors have to make informed decisions. Ask Questions, do a little digging on the Charity.

For us at The Golden Carrot things are even harder. We don't adopt out, we take in the old, the injured and the unrideable ones, they might have emotional scars or physical ones, when they come to us they stay as long as they are alive. That makes donations so much more important? Will you help us with 


All rescues are not created equal.
There has been a trend, that we've discussed, toward a new model of rescue where the rescue retains some level of control over their adopted horse for a finite period of time and then withdraws it, leaving the adopter free to do whatever they wish with that horse, including breeding it, selling it at auction, sending it to kill because they are angry with it, you name it.
And of course the world is chock full of feedlot rescues where there is no contract at all and the adopter can immediately do whatever they want with the horse. Or there's a contract, but no enforcement, so basically - no contract.
Those of us who are committed to doing things the old fashioned way - a contract that binds the adopter for the life of the horse to providing proper care, not breeding, and returning the horse to the rescue if it does not work out - will now be using the hashtag #SafetyForever so that adopters and donors know where we stand. We are rescues that are committed to doing everything in our power to keep our horses safe for LIFE, not for as long as they are a hot topic on Facebook.
This does not mean that we might not fail sometimes - it means that we promise to make our absolute best efforts to ensure safety. It means we put equine safety above getting an adoption fee or being able to show X number of adoptions. It means we are fine with a horse being with us for years if that is what it takes to find the right person. Or for the rest of their life.
#SafetyForever - a promise we make to our horses, and to you, our donors and supporters. Please share and spread the word!

Easy Delicious and Nutritious Banana Bread

So there is someone in this household that always asks for Bananas..... and it then drives me Nuts (or Bananas) that this same person won't eat them. But I love baking so the best option is making Banana Bread. 

I went to find a basic cake recipe and then modified it the way I like it and also trying to make it a bit healthier. So here it goes:

You will need:
4 ripe bananas,
2 table spoons raw Cocoa Nibs (
2 tablespoons Easy Cook Oats
2 tablespoons chopped nuts (I used Walnuts)
2 tablespoons slivered Almonds (extra for the top)

115 gram /1 stick melted Butter 
150 gram Brown Sugar (white will work too)
2 large eggs
200 grams Flour (substitute from sweet rice flower, from
1 teaspoon Baking Soda

PreHeat the oven to 350 FH / 180 Centigrade
Butter a Loaf Pan 8.5 by 4.25 (or similar)

In a bowl mash the ripe bananas (I just used the mixer),
add the sugar and the eggs and beat until nicely incorporated
add the melted Butter and the dry ingredients
(I do this a little at the time)
Mix until all is well combined, make sure you don't beat it to death,
that will make the bread all gummy.

Fill the batter in the prepared LoafPan and sprinkle some Almonds on top, 
then bake for about 60 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

Remove from the oven and let cool. Or eat a warm piece! 

Super yummy any time of the day!
