    The thing for ***...

    I have a beautiful rescue horse who has turned out to be a great horse. She has precisely ONE vice, and that is even though she has a stall with a run, she tends to make a mess in her straw and and to either lie there, or in the spot in her run where she urinates. I cannot figure out this behavior BUT, this is in Colorado where the temperature gets very cold so I cannot bathe her every day. Sometimes it is weeks between when the weather gets warm enough for me to clean her up properly. Enter this stuff. It is a lifesaver for me. I curry it on her in the morning and it dries her right up. No rashes or hotspots (yet, I'm knocking on wood). But I do not know what I would do without it.

    Excellent Product

    I started using this product on my horse a year ago. She had a terrible case of rain rot. I don't like using chemicals on any of my pets, especially not on my horse. This worked great for clearing up the rain rot. It has a delicate, pleasant smell and did not bother my horse at all. I apply it often, even to her blanket when the weather is cold. I haven't had an episode of rain rot since I have been using this product. It also works as a dry shampoo/deodorizer for her coat. Which never looks dull. I've used their Clean shampoo and paste on her coat and bug bites. I am very happy with all their products. I even use their products made for me. I'm so glad I found their website and that they are local. I highly recommend their products not only for your horse, dogs and cats but for you too.

    Invaluable in Winter

    Love this powder for getting my horse dry after a workout session in the winter. My QH is a very fuzzy guy and gets soaked during a lesson. In the winter, I apply the coat defense power, throw on a cooler (if it's really cold) for a while, then remove the cooler and brush. It really grabs onto the sweat and helps get him dry. I'd be spending a lot more time after winter workouts of not for the Coat Defense Powder.

    Great stuff!!!

    I have used this on scratches, cuts and other odd skin ailments and it helps clear up skins quickly. I've also sprinkled it on sweaty coats when it is too cold to wash and it really absorbs the sweat and dirt. Totally worth it and super fast shipping!
