After all, isn’t ammonia really just “ammonia;” whether a dog, cat, horse or elephant is producing it? Sweet PDZ is very effective in neutralizing and eliminating dog and cat urine and feces odors. It also works well to neutralize and eliminate what some folks refer to as, “doggie” odors. Sweet PDZ works equally as well on grass and astro-turf as it does in horse stalls.

SmartPak offers advice and solutions to help your horse battle winter hoof woes

As the saying goes, “no hoof, no horse.” Hooves are to horses as foundations are to houses – they’re the base everything else is built on. And just like your house’s foundation, your horse’s hooves need to be strong, solid, and reliable. Unfortunately, winter weather can pose challenges for managing hoof health for both horse owners and farriers. Aside from trying to manage what we can of the environment, it is important to understand the factors that can impact hoof health, and develop a comprehensive plan to help manage your horse’s individual needs this season.

It’s been documented that between three and four million years ago horses roamed North America. Since that time, with the influence of evolution and land bridge migratory patterns, the horse has played a critical role in agriculture, warfare, and transportation.

No longer needed as a work horse, today the horse is our companion and sometime-therapist, whether it’s in competition or for a trail ride. Or maybe the horse’s mane is where we bury our noses and tears. Whatever the reason, horses sculpt how we live our lives.
