Who wants to spend hours at the barn in the freezing cold? If it is all time spent riding, maybe. But doing barn chores? Not me. The following three innovative products are guaranteed to save you time and energy!
1. Dura-Tech® StableHand™
The StableHand™ has my vote for one of the most useful products that Schneiders offers. Filling hay bags, shavings bags and trash bags is a hassle – especially with cold hands in the winter. By inserting StableHand™ into any bag, you can transform it into a free-standing container. You don’t need someone else to hold open the bag, and you can stop wishing you had a third arm. (Click here for a video demo!) Check out our special deal offered on this item through January 31st!
2. Safety Twine Cutter
I used to always use scissors to cut open hay bales, but it worried me that I’d misplace them in my hay room or accidentally cut myself. The Safety Twine Cutter is safer and easier to use than scissors because the blade is protected and you can cut the twine in one quick motion. Plus it probably costs less than the pair of scissors you’re currently using.
3. Dura-Tech® Fast Wrap Polos
Why would I spend time wrapping polos when its freezing in the barn? I’d much rather use Fast Wrap Polos by Dura-Tech®. Achieve the same protection as polos in a fraction of the time, with no need to roll them up after use. At roughly the same retail price as traditional polo wraps, this one is a no-brainer.

Chinese herbs – effective or simply a fad?
Chinese Veterinary Medicine, while only recently provoking interest in North America, has existed for thousands of years (1). The goal of Chinese herbal medicine is to treat the entire body for wellness, rather than treat a specific symptom. Vet practitioners who follow the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine will often prescribe herbs that they feel will bring the body into balance and therefore relieve illness (2). Many veterinarians combine Eastern and Western techniques when treating animals. Alternative therapies have recently grown in popularity, but are they effective? According to Dr. Bessent, holistic veterinarian and founder of Herbsmith, Inc., “We’ve become so reliant on pharmaceuticals that many think herbs are folklore but TCVM (Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine) is more than that. It’s a medical system that looks beyond symptoms to address the root causes of illness, while supporting good health. Using Chinese herbs proactively pays off since people can deal with an animal’s issues before they become severe.” (1)
Dr. Chris Bessent, founder of Herbsmith, Inc., is an active practitioner of holistic veterinary medicine, including Chinese herbs, acupuncture, food therapy and chiropractic therapy (3). After more than a decade of including Chinese herbal combinations in her practice, she founded Herbsmith, Inc. to provide herbal solutions for improving overall animal wellness.
Dealing with frozen buckets has to be one of the most miserable barn chores out there. I recall spending hours in the freezing cold, attacking iced-over buckets with hammers or hoof picks and leaving them turned over in the sun, hoping the big blocks of ice would melt enough to slip out. Not only was it a pain, but I also broke multiple buckets in the process. I had to keep back-up buckets for when the main ones were frozen solid. Does this sound familiar to anyone?
I finally decided to install Schneiders’ 5 gallon flatback heated water buckets. I have a two stall barn, and put two buckets in each stall. They were larger than my other buckets but I could still fit them in the same mounted holders. I drilled holes in my stall wall so I could feed the cord through. This was one of the best decisions I ever made. My heated buckets never froze over – even on the coldest nights. No electricity? No problem. The next best solution would be to install High Country insulated bucket holders, tested to not freeze down to 15°F.
Water for turnout is another issue entirely. I have two solutions – either ditch your regular turnout water trough for Schneiders’ 16 gallon heated tub, or try the Dura-Tech® Ice Breaker & Strainer. The ice breaker is the most economical way to address the problem – plus you don’t have to worry about cords to heat a tub. The ice breaker and strainer is made of sturdy aluminum so you can break through the ice, while the mesh net allows you to remove the broken chunks without getting wet. The Dura-Tech® Ice Breaker & Strainer beats a sledgehammer and wet gloves any day. (For a video demo of the ice breaker, click here.)
Let’s not forget the dogs and cats! Keep their water from freezing with this heated pet bowl. It holds a whole gallon of water and is made in the USA.
I hope my frozen water solutions from sstack.com are helpful to you! They’ve made my winter much more bearable, and hopefully will ease yours as well!
