New Innovation – Slow Feeder Saver

How often do you find wasted hay strewn around your horse’s stall or blown away in the turnout arena? Does your horse dunk their hay and leave the leftovers in their water buckets? If you’re frustrated by your horse wasting their feed, the Slow Feeder Saver is your solution.

Slow Feeder Saver

Slow Feeder Saver

The Slow Feeder Saver is made of durable molded plastic with a removable steel feeding grate. It is large enough to hold an entire day’s worth of feed and puts your horse in a natural grazing position. It slows down the rate of feeding and therefore dramatically reduces the risk of colic. The hole at the bottom makes for easy cleaning. It has a 3 year limited warranty.

Healing Tree TZon Equine Dermal Care Cream

1. Healing Tree® TZon Equine Dermal Care Cream
“This is an all natural anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory that contains hydrocortisone so that any associated itch is alleviated. It’s safe to use on cats, dogs horses and even yourself. Pain and itch are instantly relieved. It really speeds up healing. It’s great for any type of fungal problem or infection. A little goes a long way.”

2. EquiSilver products
“EquiSilver is another all natural product that kills bacteria and fungus on contact. The silver instantly alleviates pain. Results are very quick and healing time is sped up considerably. I also use it on my little Schnauzer because it clears up hot spots on dogs as well. I actually used it on myself a couple weeks ago when I put a nail through my finger and it didn’t even hurt the next day, so I know first-hand that it works.”

 

Vetericyn Hydrogel

3. Vetericyn™ Hydrogel
“Vetericyn is a great all around product that is safe to use around the eyes, nose and mouth. It kills bacteria including antibiotic-resistant MRSA. The thicker gel formula stays in contact with the wound.”

Foaling in February – Prevent Hypothermia

Foaling early in the year is common, and it is essential to keep a new foal warm and dry after birth. Schneiders has several great options for your foal!

UltraFlex Foal Saver

UltraFlex® Foal Saver®

UltraFlex® Foal Saver®
Our Foal Saver® has Tekno-Dri® lining to help finish drying the newborn foal’s coat after birth and prevent hypothermia. It has additional layers of polarfleece and fiberfill insulation for warmth and moisture transport. The outer cover is high count cotton so that you can wash it repeatedly. The expandable Velcro front and Velcro bellyband fastening allows you to expand the fit as the foal grows. It also features a comfortable stretch shoulder. It is available in four sizes to fit any breed of foal, from Miniature to Warmblood!

From a customer in Doylestown, PA -
“I have 5 of these for my foaling facility. Wash in cold water, line dry, no bleach but oxiclean is OK for manure stains. Great for weak or preemie foals, keeps their body temperature up. Take care to adjust belly velcro strap away from foal’s umbilical stump, and watch that colts do not pee inside that strap. My foal blanket wardrobe numbers in the dozens, and the UltraFlex Foal Savers are my go-to choice, with Schneider’s Tekno-Fleece Foal Warmer my 2nd choice because of its stay-put, snugly adjustable nature.”

Tekno-Fleece Foal Warmer

Horse Blanket Troubleshooting Solutions

Horse Blanket Troubleshooting

Schneiders wants to make blanketing your animals as hassle-free as possible. Horses will be horses, and as owners we sometimes have to do a bit of troubleshooting. Some common annoyances with blanketing horses include blanket tears, dirty Velcro closures that are no longer effective and blanket rubbing. Stress no longer – Schneiders has the following horse blanket solutions!

1.StormShield® Blanket Repair Tape
Even the strongest blankets can tear, either on the outer shell or on the lining. Having them repaired can be expensive and time consuming. The simplest solution is to use Schneiders’ StormShield® Blanket Repair Tape. It allows you to quickly and easily repair waterproof turnout blankets in minutes. It is offered in 18” strips in 10+ colors, and costs much less than a typical blanket repair ($2.95 a strip). Don’t let your horse go without a blanket just because it needs repaired! Fix it at home with StormShield® Blanket Repair Tape. Click here to view a video tutorial!

2.Velcro Restorer Brush
I am a fan of Velcro assist front closures on turnout blankets. They keep the front of the blanket closed so that it doesn’t bunch up behind the buckles after your horse has been moving around. The problem, though, is that the Velcro doesn’t stand a chance of staying clean in the barn and soon loses its effectiveness. This Velcro restorer brush brings it back to life in no time, and is cost effective to boot. It is one of those items you don’t think to shop for, but can’t live without once you own one.

3.UltraFlex® Shoulder Slicker
Even the best fitting blankets can leave rub marks on sensitive horses. If you are showing and want to prevent rubs and hair loss on the base of the mane and top of the withers, or if your horse is sensitive but needs to stay blanketed, try using a shoulder slicker. The lycra prevents friction from blanketing so hair loss is kept to a minimum. Schneiders’ UltraFlex® Shoulder Slicker is made of 8 oz durable lycra with a Velcro closure at the neck and an elastic girth strap to keep it securely in place. Our slickers are sized to fit weanlings up to large warmbloods (sizes 64 – 86).

We hope this information is helpful to you! We have plenty of blanket accessories (leg straps, bellyband extenders, blanket wash, blanket re-proofer and more) at sstack.com to make your life at the barn easier! Check out all of our cold weather solutions to make short work of your winter!
