Carr & Day & Martin Stain Remover

This is a great product, with reasonable results and is very easy to use. It's also reasonably priced in comparison to its competitors, although is not the cheapest out there.

With a young horse, one of the most helpful features is the much quieter spray trigger. It's almost silent, but also produces a mist, so the horse doesn't get a shock.

With one or two quick sprays on the stain, leave the product one for a minute or two, before washing it off with a warm wet cloth. It's been great for head & body stains, although I've found tough mud stains on the lower legs do require a wash prior to application to get better results.

It's easy to replace as most equine or farm stores stock this brand & the Carr & Day & Martin Stain Remover seems to be in the main product set.


Horses with White Bits

I have quickly remembered the OCD that kicks in when you have a horse with lots of white - dirt, mud and poo stains become the enemy very fast!

White legs are bound to get dirty through the winter, as is a white tail, but it doesn't make the cleaning any easier! Coupled with Louie having an excellent target eye for hitting his legs with poop & using that poop as a pillow overnight in the stable, I had my hands full with cleaning...

Take a look at some of my product review posts to see which products I'm using and how well I think that they work.

Introducing Louie

Since losing Thomas, I've been up and down emotionally, wondering whether I would ever get through the loss of such a great horse.

I'm pleased to say that the back end of 2014 my head found the right space, and I was able to get serious about a search for a new horse.

On New Year's Eve, I met Louie. A rising four year old, fresh over the water from Ireland. Before going to see him, I wasn't convinced after seeing a bout of 'not-for-me' horses. I was completely surprised, and from seeing him, thought 'he's the one for me!'
