Date added: 03/06/2014 What is Denier You Ask?
In your search for horse blankets have you ran across the term ‘denier’? If you are like the rest of us you are probably wondering what in the world is ‘denier’. Denier, simply put, is the coarseness of the fiber from which the blanket is made. The higher the ‘denier’ number, the tougher the outer shell of the blanket will be. A denier of 600 would be considered adequate, while 800 would be middle range. If you want or need the toughest of blankets then go for a blanket with a much higher denier within a range of 1200 to 1680. I hope this helps when making your blanket selection. Stay warm!

Do you know how often it is recommended that you have your horse's teeth checked?
Regular exams are extremely important to detect dental problems early. Annual exams are recommended for mature horses and bi-annual exams are recommended for 2 to 5 year old horses to keep your horse's teeth in good condition. According to the American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP), you should seek veterinary attention if the horse shows any of these signs:
• Having difficulty with chewing, salivates excessively or food falling from the mouth.
• Has a loss of body condition.
• There are large or undigested feed particles in the manure.
• The head tilts or tosses, tongue lolls, or the horse fights the bit when bridling.
• Fails to turn or stop or lugs on the bit.
• There's a foul odor coming from the nostrils or mouth, and/or traces of blood from the mouth.
• Has a nasal discharge and/or swelling of the jaw, face, or mouth tissues.
