“A new life thanks to horse milk!”

Horsemilkery ‘De Lage Wierde’’ at Wirdum have been started up in 2002 with the milking of two Haflingers. The reason was that the horsemilker’s (Cor de Winter) niece was suffering from serious eczema problems. These problems where to such a nature that regular medication did not work any longer. “Help me to get rid of my annoying complaints!”

By means of a documentary of a Dutch television program Cor’s niece learned that horse milk and other horse milk products have a favorable impact on skin problems. Cor de Winter was rung by his niece with the request for horse milk.

Cor de Winter found out that it was very cumbersome to get some horse milk and decided for this reason to milk his own horses. After a couple of months drinking the horse milk his niece was cured of her annoying disorder. Cor de Winter decided to continue with milking horses.
