The weather’s finally getting nicer in most parts of the country, and if you have been itching to get some more saddle miles logged on the trails or in the area, be sure that you’re stocked up with everything that you need to keep your animals — and yourself — happy, comfortable, and ready to head out.
Equine supplier State Line Tack has several deals going on right now that can help keep the flies away, help keep your leather tack looking good, and help keep your horse in tip-top shape. Here are four sale items that jumped out at us:
$125.99 (on sale from $168.41): Farnam Repel-Xp Emulsifiable Fly Spray
If flies are a problem on your farm, then you’re going to want to stock up — and this gallon container should do the trick. This is the concentrate form of Farnam’s Repel-Xp Emulsifiable Fly Spray, making the purchase a little easier on your budget. Simply mix with water to kill on contact and provide protection from biting and bloodsucking flies, gnats, and mosquitoes. It also repels horn flies, house flies, stable flies, and horse and deer flies. You can make it strong or weak depending on your needs. Because it’s oil-based, remains effective longer on your horse when applied every three to four days. And it’s good on sensitive-skinned horses.
Don’t need quite this much? It’s also available in pint size for $22.39.
$22.41 (on sale from $26.36): Farnam Leather New
Yup, another deal on a Farnam product! Farnam Leather New cleans, conditions, and polishes in one step, and makes leather look like new with a single application. It removes embedded dirt and grime while replacing natural oils deep down in leather, protecting the texture and color, making it supple with a polished finish and dries to a long-lasting shine. Leather New will not dull or stain, leave an oily residue or rub off on riding pants.
$96.91 (on sale from $107.68): Cosequin Optimized MSM Powder Easy Packs Twin Pack
Cosequin Optimized with MSM is a tasty powder containing higher levels of active ingredients compared to the original researched formula, with the addition of high-quality MSM. The increased amounts of ingredients stem from current opinion suggesting that horses in work may benefit from higher levels of Glucosamine. Some veterinarians suggest using MSM to help manage joint health. In addition to being a convenient way to provide MSM along with the proven ingredients in original Cosequin (there are 60 single-serving packs here!) it features an apple flavor horses love.
$15.28 (on sale from $18.78): NaturVet Bitter YUCK No Chew Spray Twin Pack
NaturVet Bitter YUCK! No Chew Spray for horses is an alcohol-free, easy-to-apply spray that helps stop horses and pets from chewing and gnawing on blankets, paws, furniture, hot spots, wounds, drapes, manes, tails, leg wraps, and any number of problem areas. Inexpensive and non-staining, it can be used on any washable surface and indoors, with no terribly offensive odors. Bitter YUCK! is water-based and will not cause stinging.
