Oh MY GOSH, I FOUND A GREAT NEW PRODUCT for those of us in hot climates! LOVE LOVE LOVE ‘EQUI COOL DOWN’!






So, remember last week when I said that if you have a great product that you manufacture or have a great ‘find’ that you use and love, to tell me?…

Well, I received 3 items from a reader.  She represents EQUI COOL DOWN.  The items are rapid cool down towels, blankets and wraps for horses and for humans.

OK, so I told her that I would diligently use the products, but would not guarantee a review unless I really loved them…

…and I LOVE THEM!

I only used the human products, but I am going to purchase more human products AND the neck wrap/leg wraps for my older horses, for sure.

Here’s why –

— Really easy to use

–They work really well

These are the items I received, plus the booklet. I have a beanie, a towel (they loved) and a head/neck band which I loved and so did my farrier.

HOW I TESTED THEM

It is hot here.  Africa hot.  I hate to go outside after 11am.  This makes me sad.  You see, if I go out in the heat and work, I generally feel like throwing up once I’m done.    I lay on my bed like a fish and gasp for air.

Can you imagine how your horse feels after working in the heat?  Oy.  Or just standing around in the heat.  Ugh.

OK, so what I did was pass these items around to our friends who were staying for the weekend and wanted to go to the Fair.  The last thing we wanted to do was go to the dusty MidState Fair in 104 degree weather…

But we went.  I could not think of a better, more miserable testing ground…

I had the neck/head band, my friend had the towel and her daughter wore the beanie.

OHMYGOSH I cannot tell you how well they worked – it was unbelievable!  All you do is wet them, wring them out and wave or snap them in the air.  That’s it.  Put them on and they felt icy cold for a long time.  Once the items returned to room temperature, we’d just snap them again and they were good as new!  If the product started to dry out, we’d pop into a bathroom and re-wet them, wring them and snap!

SAVED us!  We were totally comfortable walking around the hot, dusty Fair.

Unbelievable.  I could have sold a million of them at the Fair.  Everyone who saw it – wanted it.  I wore my neck/headband under my hat, so I know it would fit under a helmet. Same with the beanie.

My friends would not part with the towel and beanie – they took the items home with them.

So now I only have the head/neckband… except… I gave that to my farrier today.   I am ordering more!

Cathy has on the beanie and the towel, Alice is wearing my neck/headband. Just wet, wring, snap and go! So awesome!

WORKING HORSES, OLDER HORSES… WORKING PEOPLE, OLDER PEOPLE…!  My farrier took mine home!

So, I am fairly certain these items would be GREAT for working horses.  Or just standing horses who have to endure heat.  Or, older horses who have a tough time in the heat.  There are several different types of equine products – leg, neck, body… click here to learn more.

Today the farrier came and I had him try my neck/head band.  He was skeptical … but he LOVED it.  I had to give it to him, he loved it so much.  And, I figured he deserved it after trimming 7 or my horses in this heat.

The farrier came today and he tested my neckband. He would not give it back. It is now his.

The wonderful reader who works closely with the company and contacted me – said that if I liked the product and reviewed it, she would offer a discount to Horse and Man readers!

Yes!

I recommend that you get the human neck/head band or the towel – so inexpensive for such heat relief!   My friend loved the towel because it had more surface area (you could use any type of chipbag clip or safety pin to keep it around your neck).  I liked the neckband.  So did my farrier.

For horses, I would start with the neckwrap, but the body wrap look amazing for a working horse or older horse.  I’m pretty sure any horse would love any product.

EMERGENCY BUCKET FUND: WILD FOAL NOT ABLE TO KEEP UP WITH FAMILY BAND… DISTRAUGHT MOTHER HAD TO LEAVE HIM SUFFERING HEAT STROKE/PNEUMONIA … HE IS BEING RESCUED AS WE SPEAK!






He was spotted today during one of the hottest days of the year – in the Nevada (desert) Virginia Range.  He appeared to be about 2 months old.  A foal.  Unable to stand and follow his herd.  His mother was upset and hovering.

Tragically, even with her encouragement, he couldn’t rise -so his band had to leave him – in the sun.

Little Milan could not rise. His mother was frantic. But, the band had to move on – and leave him to suffer in the extreme heat.

Luckily workers in the area saw him and knew to call Wild Horse advocates.   The workers sat with him to comfort this very ill baby… they did their best, begged for aid and even paid for his Emergency Aid.  The foal was picked up, literally, in ER veterinarian’s arms and given immediate oxygen/fluids – then transported to a nearby equine hospital.

A worker in a local business called authorities and begged to find help for this baby who was dying before her eyes. The kind soul even paid for the ER call.  (This is a wild foal… he is trying so hard to be alert, but he cannot even move away from this human.  Amazing and sad because he is clearly in distress or he would run away.)

At the hospital, it was discovered that this little foal is suffering heat stroke and severe pneumonia.  It is touch and go but little Milan (the name of the street where he was found) is responding to treatment.  The doctors are holding vigil to save him.

Once help arrived, he was carried in human arms to the Equine Ambulance where he was given immediate oxygen and fluids to cool him down… but he was not responding as he should…

One of the workers who first noticed this little guy and desperately called for help because they  couldn’t watch this foal suffer and die in the heat –  has offered to pay the price for his pick up and ER care.  But Milan needs heavy antibiotics and 24/7 care until he comes out of this.

He is now at the ER with severe pneumonia. The Doctors feel his first dose of strong antibiotics has helped and are encouraged. But it is an expensive protocol – with 24/7 care.

HERE IS WHERE WE COME IN…

I received a desperate call from one of the Team members helping little Milan.  They want to save him but don’t have the funds to continue his care.  Could we help him?

Can we help this little guy on his road to recovery?  This is happening RIGHT NOW!  I’d like to be able to reassure the team helping him that Milan can receive his life saving care.

All donations are 100% tax deductible!  Please, it would be great to help this boy – especially after a selfless worker did everything she could to get him help.

Let’s do it for the lady who saved him and for his mother, who couldn’t!
