It is Valentine’s Day today and the Met Office predicted another ‘terrible day’ of storms. Way too much rain!!! As if we needed any more… The weather’s been horrendous and our heart goes out to all who found their property submerged in rainwater. Many horses had to be rescued and relocated and it is in these circumstances that our telephonists find themselves busy answering queries from owners with horses in trouble. The obvious things to give out with this much precipitation and dampness are coat and hooves. Mud fever, rain scald, itching, hoof rot, brittle hooves and many callers are already doing all they can, yet aren’t getting on top of it. You can’t change the weather, you can’t change the dampness but what you can change and should change is your horse’s ability to stand up to it. Follow the example of Barbour who changed a permeable cotton coat into the trusted Land Rover of weather protection. ‘Wax’ your horse!. Barbour’s waxed-cotton stockman’s coat has kept countrymen dry for decades. That is precisely one of the ways in which Aloeride aloe vera for horses offers HUGE support to your horse. Its resilience to the wet is the fat content and fat quality of its coat. Its resilience to bugs is very broad spectrum nutrition to fuel fighting back effectively. This is what I call Safer By Sebum. This is explained in Coat Health and Natural Coat Shine and if your horse too needs help, then choose which is the best purchase option for you and your horse.
