There are wild fires burning all around us.
Honestly, I’m holding my breath every time I see a plume, wondering if the wind will blow it our way.
The Cal Fire Department says that since we had so much rain, there is a lot of grass (fuel) on the ground. Oy. Luckily, so far, the fires near us have all been in unpopulated areas, right outside our vicinity. Scary. My heart goes out to all of those who are IN the fires. Unbearable tragedy for some.
Today, I purchased 9 Mane Stays – just for my peace of mind. (No affiliation)
Here is a quick image of what it does… it is spring loaded and it just clips right onto the horse’s mane. (You fill out all of your information on the card inside ahead of time.)
I WANT MY HORSES ID’D OBVIOUSLY FROM THE OUTSIDE (No affiliation)
I have written several posts about micro chipping, cattle crayons, spray paint and Sharpie on the hooves… but for me, I think the Mane Stay would be the fastest and easiest way to ID my horses before I had to open the gates.
(We live in a valley and the Fire Dept blocks off the access when there are fires. So, most likely, I’d have to release them.)
Knowing I could write out my info way ahead of time, and have these things ready to clip on their mane in an instant, sounds very good to me. To be honest, if it wasn’t so hot here all the time, I’d clip it on in the beginning of fire season and just leave it there.
I just figure that for me, having these on hand, would make me feel more secure. If I had to open the gates and let them go, at least they will all have the same, obvious ID tags.
HERE IS HOW QUICKLY THEY ATTACH!
It takes about 2 seconds to attach the Mane Stays to the mane.

MANE STAY IS OFFERING A DEAL RIGHT NOW! – get yours! (No affiliation)
When I contacted ICE Products about purchasing my 9 Mane Stays, they offered this deal:
Please direct your readers to iceproducts.net/manestay where they’ll find lots of information and photos. Please include a mention that if someone’s horse or mule doesn’t have enough mane hair to make a secure attachment, the tail works just as well. We feel it’s important that the animal be wearing highly visible identification that can be seen from a distance, so placement high on the body (such as the mane) is best. Our product doesn’t replace the need for a microchip, tattoo or brand–permanent identification is excellent. But in the midst of an emergency, you want something that anyone (neighbor, first responder, etc.) can read without special knowledge or equipment.
HERE IS THE DEAL (USE THESE CODES!):
Go to this website and use the below codes!
For your readers, if someone wants to buy one they can use code HORSEMAN and save 10%. For two or more, code HM15 will save them 15%.
