Today Silver Lining Herbs is a world leader in natural herbal support for horses and dogs, with tremendous sales growth as word has spread of the effectiveness of Silver Lining Herbs. Yet, it remains a family-owned company, with a passion for helping people take optimal care of their animals for both health and performance.
This ethos has its roots with Lavern Young, father of Silver Lining founder Mickey Young. A cattle rancher and range rider for the Bureau of Land Management for over 20 years, Lavern grew up in close proximity to the Navajo Indians, from whom he learned a great deal about medicinal herbs and their beneficial uses for both human and animal. All of these life experiences came together to form a commitment to seeking health naturally, a commitment shared by his wife Ruth Young, who became an herbalist in her own right, respected throughout the community for the quality of the herbs and advice found at her store.
