Stock Tank Secret
an end to dump-and-scrub of water tanks, tubs, buckets, automatic
waterers. Keep water clean and palatable for up to two months. To
use, tear off label and put bag -- unopened -- in tank. (Be sure to
tie the bag to a rock or horseshoe so it sinks to the bottom of
tank. Nic thought he had a new toy and kept playing with it and
taking it out of tank!) One bag will treat up to 200 gallons.
Developed by a horsewoman and her vet, the barley straw treatment
has been used in England for years as a water treatment for horses,
cattle, goats, sheep, swine, poultry, fish and even exotic animals

(Western States) Expo. Stock Tank Secret works GREAT! Ordering
three more. Loved your talk and visit." Lynn, California

inch thick and inch wide. Folds into handle. Easy to carry, open
and use. Fits comfortably in jean, jacket or shirt pocket so you'll
always have a knife for quick emergency (cutting a lead rope when a

pocket, in trailer door tray, on tack room shelf or toss in glove

control amounts of medication or water administered easier. Get all
the medication or water INTO the horse's mouth. Great for flushing
a wound as amount and pressure of fluids flushing wound can be
controlled. For oral dosing, easier to slide into horse's mouth as
the 'finger grips' allow one to hold the syringe firmly while 'thumb

trail bell will help other users know you
and your horse are on a trail. Swiss made, the small
bell can be attached to the center cinch,
side of a stirrup, breast collar. It's 'light' tinkle lets other
critters, deer, bears, even cattle, know you're on the trail. Plus
other trail users! (I've used a Trail Bell
for years and never had a deer bolt down a trail or leap out of the
brush when it suddenly saw me and Nic because the deer heard the
bell before seeing us and moved off the
trail quietly into the underbrush.) Attaches with a break-away snap
so it can't get hung up on weeds or snags when off-trail
riding. Also put a Trail Bell on your
dog when the dog is 'off leash' in parks that allow free running so
you'll know where your dog is at all times as he darts and runs in
high grasses and brush.
