All horse owners check manure.
That’s what you do…
Good healthy manure usually means a good, healthy horse.
So what do you do when the manure is a bit dry (although otherwise healthy) and it just isn’t flowing as well as you’d like…?
Last night, I tried HAUL ‘N GO on Tess to see if it would help her pass more fluid manure.
HAUL ‘N GO (no affiliation)
You all know that I have used and believe in “SAY WHOA!” for colic. I use it whenever I have an inkling that something is amiss as I am waiting for the vet.
It has always worked. By the time the vet arrives, the colic symptoms are gone.
So, when I heard that they have a brand new product out, HAUL ‘N GO, I asked for a sample.
HAUL ‘N GO is used for the times when your horse has dry stools or is not flowing well. Maybe after a trailer ride, in hot weather or at a show… or if stalled.
For Tess, she sometimes won’t move around as much as needed to create a good flow. And, even though I wet all of her food and leave clean, cool water everywhere for her, she might not drink enough, either, especially when it is really hot.
Sometimes, she has small and dry manure for a few days. This upsets me. So, I give her psyllium powder fairly regularly. But it doesn’t always work. In fact, I think she is getting used to it…
Anyway, yesterday, I thought her manure was too dry (and had been for a few days), so I administered the HAUL ‘N GO last night.
It was easy… the liquid comes in an easy paste dispenser. I put the plunger into her mouth (like a wormer) and made sure it was far back – then pushed.
She gulped it down. And, to be honest, she seemed to like the taste. Tess kept licking her lips.
And, voila! This morning, MT had a nice few piles of wet and lumpy manure, as it should be.
I’m guessing she was relieved and I know I was.
HOW TO GET IT?
They haven’t yet gotten this new item on their website… but if you want some, just email them or call them. You get two syringes (2 doses) for $35 plus $5 shipping in the US. Total: $40.
For me, I think it is very worthwhile to have on hand! (no affiliation)
