Alpha Enterprises USA Co started as Alpha Firewood, a part-time firewood business in 1995, catering to the bundled firewood market, servicing campgrounds, convenience stores, and grocery stores.
In 2005, we desired to diversify and started Buildings By Alpha. At first, we produced storage sheds and mini barns but because of the demand, we soon started producing cabins and specialty-buildings such as playhouses and vendor booths.
In 2009, we again expanded into a new line of products by creating horse and livestock run-in sheds.
We deliver all our buildings throughout Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, and Illinois. Our mission is to produce a ready-to-use building with high-quality materials and with high-quality construction, yet affordable enough to give the customer the Best Value.
About Alpha Enterprises USA Co
We are “Best in Service, Best in Value”. We intend to stand behind that phrase as we are sure you will agree. We also say “YOU MAY FIND IT CHEAPER, BUT THEN IT IS,” meaning there are cheaper buildings out there, however, if you compare the materials & construction to what we provide, you will see theirs are cheaper.
Call us at (608) 633-2687 and we can explain to you the differences. We look forward to serving you in your ready-to-use building needs!
This DIY natural horse shampoo recipe is one of my favorites to have on hand. I use it for my horses, dogs, kids, and my own hair with great results. I love all the natural horse products on the market today, but not always the price tag! In my experience, this recipe works just as well as the $30+ per liter brands and is super easy to make.
The main ingredient in the top natural shampoos is usually a coconut based soap, and for this recipe, I always use Dr. Bronners Organic Liquid Castile Soap. In my experience, it’s by far the best in quality and price. In a pinch, you can use it straight from the bottle, but the addition of oils, glycerin, witch hazel and essential oils really gives it an extra boost (it can also be too drying on its own). Since I have lots of essential oils I usually go for the unscented option, but you can also choose one with it already added (Tea Tree is awesome!) to save a step.

Born, raised, and educated in Portland, Oregon, Dr. Heather Wenzell developed a passion for the equine industry during her preteen years when she involved herself in three-day eventing and show-jumping. Her continued success at horse shows throughout North America ultimately led to her specializing in show-jumping and breeding Hanoverian sport horses.
Dr. Wenzell has ridden for a number of years as a Northwest A-Circuit Grand Prix rider, training under three-time Olympian Kevin Freeman, and later under Hap Hansen, a renowned US Grand Prix competitor. She continued to ride at this level while receiving a Bachelor’s degree in Biology from the University of Portland. She currently trains and competes under the tutelage of Phillip Cillis of Westwood at Rancho Riding Club in San Diego, California.
In 1997, while continuing to compete throughout the Northwest and California, Dr. Wenzell began veterinary school at Oregon State University. Upon receiving a Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine with a focus on equine medicine, surgery, and dentistry in 2001, she received state licensure in Arizona, California, Oregon, and Washington. Years of training and experience working as an associate equine practitioner for practices in both Arizona and California enabled her to move back home to the northwest in June of 2005. Soon after, she opened Spinnaker Farm Equine Veterinary Clinic while living in Lacey, Washington.
Spinnaker Farm Equine Veterinary Clinic is affiliated with the American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP), the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), and Dr. Wenzell maintains memberships in the USA Equestrian Federation, the Pacific Coast Horse Show Association (PCHA) and the American Hanoverian Society.

“With summer’s sunny days can come extreme heat. Such situations can cause worry for owners as they struggle to help their horses adjust, stay healthy, and remain comfortable. But with a well-thought-out management plan, horses can stay cool and comfy in the midst of summer.
To help get you started on the right track, TheHorse.com caught up with Nancy Loving, DVM, an equine practitioner in Boulder, Colorado, to find out what the most important things to consider are when caring for horses in extreme heat.
When dealing with hot temperatures, Loving said the most important thing an owner can do is provide his or her horse with plenty of fresh water.
“Clean water should always be available; an average horse needs five to seven gallons of water per day in cool weather, while in hot weather, requirements for maintenance and to compensate for losses in sweat may prompt intake of 20 gallons or more per day,” she explained. “Horses in a herd should have access to a couple of water tanks spaced a distance apart so dominant horses don’t prevent a thirsty, more timid horse from drinking.
Adding an electrolyte supplement to your horse’s diet could help keep him drinking and restore the electrolyte balances disrupted by sweating, and horses should have access to a salt block or receive a daily salt supplement (no more than a tablespoon per day) to allow them to meet their dietary sodium chloride requirements.
Additionally, she added that for a horse that doesn’t drink well, offering a watery gruel of a supplement (such as complete feed pellets) rather than feeding them dry can help increase the horse’s water intake.
Insects are another concern that accompany increasing temperatures, Loving said.
“Hot weather brings insects so don’t forget to use fly sheets, insect repellant, and during active insect times of day, it can help to bring your horse into the barn and use fans to create airflow that foils the ability of flying insects to hover around your horse,” she added, as many biting flies are poor fliers.”
