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.

I forgot to tell you what I got in my HORSE BOX last month!!






OK so I love grab bags and surprises.  I do.  I mean I REALLY LOVE them.

So, it wasn’t a stretch for me to sign up for A HORSE BOX.  This is the service that sends a little box of equine product joy to your door every month!

MARCH’S BOX!

I was a bad girl in that I threw out the box and only have the contents to show you which are sitting on my bed.

*Also, I must note, I received a few other items which are in use at the present time…

A HorseBox grocery bag – which is very important for us Californians now that plastic bags are outlawed.  (I keep my HorseBox grocery bag in my car.)

A HorseBox sanitizer spray which is in my purse that is in my car.

Otherwise, this is what I received!

Mane Street Bakery holistic horse treats Biscotti cookies, Bigeloil quilted poultice hoof pads, Hay, That Blue Stuff (for rain rot) and Gastra-FX Ultra by Omega Alpha.

–Mane Street Bakery Holistic Horse Treats Biscotti.   The flavor was apple cranberry and I had no trouble distributing them…

Bigeloil Quilted Poultice hoof pads – which I am sure I will use with Mama Tess at some point to soften her sole or draw out an abscess.  They look easy to use – with a mess free application.  Much cleaner than applying clay and wrapping…

Hay, Where’s the Blue Stuff:  I haven’t used this yet because none of my horses have rain rot because it hasn’t rained much.  But I have heard that it works well for rain rot and also for hot spots on dogs.

–Omega Alpha Gastra-FX Ultra.  I already knew about this wonderful product and use it with Mama Tess since she is on medications often which upset her gut.  I love it!  Tess loves it.  Tasty and it works almost instantly.  I also use Omega Alpha Gastra-FX daily as well as Biotic 8.   (Gastra-FX Ultra is on sale right now at Big Dee!)

THE TACK BOX!

I also signed up for a Tack Box!

Again, I used a few items before I took the photo… my bad.

–I received A HORSE BOX travel bag that is now in my car to carry groceries.

–I received another sanitizer spray and a purple curry comb that is now really dirty and Tess’ favorite new grooming tool.

My A Horse Box Tack Box. I also received a lovely travel bag, a sanitizer spray and a purple curry comb that Tess loves. My bad that those items were in use elsewhere when I took this photos.

Herballs:  This is a great idea!  The box says, “Our tasty Herballs are completely free from molasses, artificial sugar and flavourings. This makes them suitable for : “ Easy Keepers”, Cushing’s,  Insulin Resistant, Laminitic/ Founder, or IMS horses and ponies. ” 

Tess liked them!

–Banixx Wounds and Infection Spray:  I used this inside of Tess’ hoof… and I must say that it did keep it clean.  I’m not sure it is better than Equisilver, but it is always good to trade off anti-bacterials just in case an immunity is created… so I’ll use both.   It is relatively inexpensive, which I like.

–Powerflex Wrap:  I use this already, daily.  So, it was gone instantly!

Botanicals Liniment Rinse:  I haven’t used this, but it has a nice fragrance.

THEY HAVE A FEW PROMOS GOING ON…

Win an H-Trap Professional Horsefly Control System
from Bite-Lite!

Bite-Lite’s® new horsefly trap uses a unique single legged frame, large black inflatable ball, and green conical hood to trick the female horsefly into finding the ball’s infrared signature after being heated by the sun. After landing on the ball to “feed” and failing to get its intended blood meal, the female will fly vertically, its normal flight path, into the green plastic conical hood and get trapped into the plastic collection bin. Perfect for commercial horse stable yards, cattle farms, campgrounds, meadows, golf courses, gardens, ponds, swimming pools, water parks, state parks, and any other sunny locations where female horseflies are a nuisance.

Retail Value $295.00 (+$25 shipping & handling)
Contest open to U.S. residents.
