HOOF BLING! “HOOFIES” – 8 hours of glory for your horse’s hooves!






I was reading my EQUUS magazine and in the very back, I saw a photo…

Cool!

Cool!

TOO MUCH FUN!

So, I went to the website listed and found some information – but very few photos – so I then clicked on the HOOFIES FACEBOOK PAGE.

And there I found the set perfect for the 4th of July!  The important part is to know that these easily applied, hoof polish decals are simple to put on but  you must take them off within 8-12 hours.  I am guessing they don’t allow the hoof to breathe.  So, you want to make sure to only use them for a short time.

I could see Finn in these for sure!

YOU CAN HAVE YOUR COMPANY LOGO CREATED!

Well, if I was a drill team, I’d probably create a special decal.  Or actually, anyone could benefit from having their logo on their horse’s hooves!

Wouldn’t this be great for therapeutic programs?!  I’m sure kids would love their own special hoof applications.

You can have them made with your company logo or drill team colors, or... anything you can think of to create!

BARREL RACERS ALREADY USE THESE…

Barrel racers, the queens of bling, have already adopted hoof bling, of course!  I swear, those gals have so much fun dressing themselves and their horses!

It is important to coordinate!

HOW TO APPLY

It looks fairly easy… like applying a decal to a bicycle fender.  You place it, make whatever adjustments are needed, then peel and stick!  Remember to pull them off after 8-12 hours, so the hoof can breathe.

AWWWW, THE DRAFT HORSES and a few more…

These hooves totally makes this draft gelding appear more fancy and delicate!  I guess I feel these little items are are a party and will make everyone who sees them – smile.

He has hearts on his collar and paint on his nails!

I love brilliant ideas and simple designs. Today, we have a shed made with PALLETS!






A pallet shelter may not be the dream shelter for some of you… but I do feel this design could solve that ‘quick fix’ you might need or be the perfect way to recycle while building the storage shed, animal shed or hay shed that you need.

And, you could make alterations to fit your needs.  I see shutters and air space in my version!

For a horse like Mama Tess, or any of my less dramatic equines, this could be a very valid solution, especially because we have a pallet plant nearby where they have mountains (literally) of ‘damaged’ pallets.

Or, I could see this as a feed shed.  Maybe a tack room.  Whatever, really!

Addendum:  Many of you were outraged that I would suggest this for an equine.  And, you are correct.  This shed, as pictured, could be hazardous.

Here we go!
