Rattlesnakes and Horses

It’s sure that time of the year! I know they’re out all around here in California, with all the rain lately.

We read a really great blog here at Equus Magazine. It’s a very thorough blog about treatments, signs, and stories of actual events, that many of you probably can attest to yourselves.

Yup, we have the Big Ones! Our massive Percheron draft team driven by one of our experienced teamsters pulls our custom made wagon at a delightful pace through our scenic woods. Perfect get together moment for the entire family!

Typically a night event. When the “Big Boys” are sleeping, we still run the hay rides; but with a big, orange colored tractor named Kubota! The hayrides will drop riders off at our campfire, marshmallow roast and sing along. A very fun evening for the entire family.

Green Horse Organics is the result of over 25 years of my personal experience, research, trial and error and an endless Passion for horses. I have long wondered why we as smart savvy modern horse people have settled for chemical-laden toxic fly sprays for so many years. I am very concerned with these pesticides, and the many years spent inhaling the spray and absorbing these toxins through our skin when we come in contact with our horses. (And of course, we want to feel free to love on them endlessly.)

All we really want to do is provide our beloved equines with some relief from flies and biting insects, but is it worth the risk? I have always thought there must be a better way for you and your horse. Our horses count on us for care and we have been spraying them down with these pesticides thinking that we are helping not harming them. You will, of course, end up with some fly spray on yourself in the process, and I am no longer willing to be contaminated by the traditional toxic fly sprays. It is no longer the necessary evil because now you have safe options.

Well I know we can do better, so I have put all of my efforts into solving this problem naturally, with ingredients that mother nature has provided. I have finally created the most powerful combination of ingredients to protect your horse from flies, while still being gentle and safe for horses and humans. I am thrilled to offer you this fantastic natural product and am confident your horse is going to appreciate it as much as you. I know there are several other so-called natural options out there, but the ingredients are weak, not very effective or just plain do not work at all. I have tried them all over the years on my own horses, as I have pursued making the very best natural horse fly spray possible.

I know what horse owners are looking for because I am one, and have been for 35 years. First of all, it has to work, then it needs to be natural, gentle, long lasting and smelling good does not hurt either! Also, if your fly spray had other healthy benefits that would just be the icing on the cake! This is why my fly spray is heads and tails above the rest and I have chosen my outstanding ingredients to take care of all of these concerns. You get multiple benefits with added healing, calming, and conditioning botanicals, making it the most effective multi-purpose natural horse spray on the market. It works 4 ways and more, details on following pages on this remarkable multi-tasker.
Thanks to my wonderful supportive Green Horse Friends, I have listened to your horse care needs and added a few more superstar products to the Green Horse Organics line up. I am dedicated to you, your horses, our health and protecting the environment, so keep your requests and ideas coming! It’s Not just about the amazing Fly spray anymore, now all of your Natural Horse care needs can be found right here. Together we can create the best Natural horse care imaginable.
