Breathe easier by making the most of the season’s barn cleaning inspirations.

The urge to purge, clean and de-clutter is in the air as the March 20 arrival of spring looms. Barns big and small benefit from an at-least annual application of serious broom, vacuum, elbow grease and re-organization. Dust, cobwebs and accumulations of generally yucky stuff in nooks and crannies are the enemies of a healthy horsekeeping environment. Clutter impedes efficient stable workflow and safe passage through the barn, so that should be tackled, too.

Digestive issues are curable culprit in many everyday behavioral issues.

Would you believe that something as simple as digestion plays a leading role in yours, and your horse’s, health?

Health originates in the digestive track --- where nutrients from foodstuffs are broken down, absorbed into the system and supplied to the entire body. When digestion is compromised, nutrients will not be fully absorbed and a wide range of deficiencies can and will occur. Signs may include low energy, poor attitude, diarrhea, weight loss, coat changes, hoof issues and even colic.

June 2017 - Smart-Trough® Mosquito Pump

Simple, solar-power system maintains water troughs for clean, fresh water that is critical to horse health and mosquito abatement.

You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink. With a Smart-Trough Mosquito Pump, though, you can significantly increase the odds that the horse will want to drink.

This solar-powered innovation creates the characteristics of a free-flowing river in horses’ existing water sources. A submerged pump oxygenates the water and the constant recirculation eliminates the growth of algae and makes the water source unappealing to mosquitoes and other pests. The end result is clean, fresh water that horses want to drink, promoting good digestive function and overall good health through ample water consumption.

Skin issues are one of many problems when the saddle doesn’t fit.

A horse’s sense of touch is much more sensitive than a human’s. Think about the reaction when a fly lands – which weighs really nothing when you think about it, and yet the horse flicks a muscle to get rid of the feeling. It stands to reason that the horse will notice the slightest pressure and react to subtle weight changes when the rider gives an aid. It’s almost like the princess with the pea – and consider how painful it must be to have a lump in the panel flocking that continually presses into its back.

Weight loss & shelly hooves are two signs a horse is short on nutrients.

by Tab Pigg

Nutrition impacts a horse’s entire body, from its mane all the way down to its hooves. When a horse owner gives feed to their horse, they are providing the horse with amino acids that are essential to keeping hooves strong and healthy. The feet collect minerals and nutrients from the blood supply. If the quality or quantity of the feed is not at the recommended level, this can lower the blood supply to the feet and inhibit a horse’s ability to grow and develop its soles and hoof walls properly. To sustain optimal hoof health, it’s important to provide the proper diet for a horse and take action if hooves are affected by a poor diet.

Horse Health Products announces the return of the Winter Hay Giveaway.

In lieu of a serious injury or illness, feed makes up the majority of the annual cost of maintaining a horse. Since hay makes up the bulk of the diet for most horses and is fed at least part of the year, if not year round, it can get expensive. But worry not, Horse Health Products wants to help! The grand prize winner will receive up to $5,000 worth of hay,* and new this year, an additional four lucky winners will receive cash towards hay!* Another five lucky winners will receive $250 worth of Horse Health™ products for their horses. See Official Rules for details at

“Previous Winter Hay Giveaway winners were so thrilled to save the money they normally spent on hay purchases that we decided to continue to help more horse owners and their horses by offering more prizes and more chances to win,” said Alyssa Barngrover, marketing manager, Horse Health Products. “Hay is one of the most essential needs for horses, with the average 1,000-pound horse consuming 10 to 20 pounds of hay each day depending on its use and management. As owners of multiple horses, hay represented a major expense for these previous winners.”

Horse owners may enter the Winter Hay Giveaway in either of two ways:

1)     Consumers who purchase a Horse Health product will be directed to visit to upload a photo or scan of their receipt and completely fill out and submit an entry form by 11:59 p.m. ET on September 30, 2017, or
2)     To receive one entry without making a purchase, fill out a 3 x 5 card with the entrant’s name, home street address, city, state and zip, phone number, email address and date of birth, and mail it to Winter Hay Giveaway, C/O Farnam Companies, Inc., PO Box 34820, Phoenix, AZ  85067.

A total of ten (10) winners will be chosen in a random drawing on or about October 13, 2017.  Purchase of a Horse Health™ product will not increase an entrant’s chance of winning. Entries are limited to one per person, regardless of the method of entry.

“Horse Health Products provide horse owners with essential, hardworking horse care solutions they can trust. By providing money to purchase hay, we can help relieve some of that financial burden for five lucky horse owners this year,” added Barngrover.

*No purchase or payment necessary to enter or win. Void where prohibited. Grand Prize is up to $5,000 cash towards the purchase of hay payable to the winner’s hay vendor or winner, as applicable.

This translates to a more comfortable and willing horse and helps ensure a quick recovery from work. In a recent study conducted on show horses with hock lameness, injection therapy combined with resveratrol supplementation lessened symptoms to a far greater degree than with injections alone.
