    I call it the “Miracle Powder”!

    I have a beautiful Haflinger mare with a long gorgeous mane who started rubbing it earlier this year. We tried absolutely everything and EVERY product out there including my veterinarian running all kinds of tests and putting her on antibiotics and more, to no avail. Had to what I called “bubble wrap” her day and night by keeping neck covers on her. A friend of mine told me about Coat Defense who swore by it, and DAY ONE it stopped the rubbing! The extra added bonus in my book is that it is made from all natural ingredients. I highly highly recommend this product!

    CD powder

    I’ve been using the powder in conjunction with the paste for scratches. It’s helped with drying up the scabs although not totally cured. Definitely improving.

    Keeps skin healthy

    Use it on hind legs for our thoroughbred...who of course has sensitive skin. He gets grunge very easily, and this product keeps it at bay!

    Not just for "rain rot"

    THIS works on those horrid itchy swelling bites that those little bugs make up under their bellies and in the "crevices" of the legs by the sheath, around the sheath, I have tried a ton of products .. everything was a cream or jelly that made dirt stick to the area and the horses hated it.. and didn't seem to help much. This stuff I pour some in my hand and wipe those areas and WOW ! Happy horses .. HAPPY mom! ALSO used the proud flesh remover and was skeptical, then AMAZED ! it only took a few applications and they are GONE ! WOW

    The best!

    This product is a multi-tasker. It cleans and drys my horses coat and takes care of skin problems..and it makes her coat shine beautifully.
