Please let me introduce this young lady…Meet Sophie Foy and one of her horses, “Tristan” of Spring Branch Stables.

Her showmanship and style is what I call quiet elegance. She has the cutest outfits, it’s her own style she truly stands out amongst the others. She accents her outfits with the cutest hats, belts and scarves. She brings her own style and grace and that also reflects in her horses appearance too, they are Manely meticulous! She is a pleasure to watch she truly shines along with her horse “Tristan” . 

Sophie and Tristan have been one of our Manely Customers for quite a few years now and we are proud to feature them in our newest brochure, They are now part of 2022  VIP Select Ambassador program.

They are both featured in our newest brochure . 

Congratulations Sophie!

Shedding Season is coming soon, and for some it has arrived. Grooming might have to change a bit as the horses start to shed “I call this PLAN B”, which means your regular maintenance brushes will not be as functional for this type of season.

So here’s my PLAN B:

Step One start with a great shedding blade. Now there are several out there I prefer the older style for it takes the hair out that has already started to release, some of the others actually FORCE THE  PROCESS AND PULL the hair leaving bald areas and your horse cold when it needs the hair still to keep warm, so I like to work with Mother Nature more and not force it. One of my favorite steps and one I suggest is using Hydrate 24 (spray with the Hydrasol mister) all over the body before, I find this helps prevent the hair from flying all over and onto us too!)

Step Two follow up with our MLH deep curry, if you need more H24 then spray more.

Step Three find a brush that can be used after the curry, out regular body brushes will not work as well for the hair will get jammed in the bristles, so here’s my favorite go to: the MLH MAINTENANCE BRUSH FOR THE MANE, this strong work horse is amazing for sweeping though the coat and picking up the extra hair and dirt with a gentle massage effect too. The brush is great on the legs and for removing some stubborn dirt too. Again use the H24 and finish with H24.

Continue your Maintenance with the above steps until shedding has subsided and you can then continue with your H24 dry groom system and regular maintenance program.

Step Four H24 for the manes, tails, forelock, feather, or shock or polisher….rotate as needed.

I have been using it on my colored outdoor hair for over 20 years and my hair is healthy and strong, so no breakage. Because it’s made for people we have the smaller 4 oz bottle available just for you. Add this to your hair routine and see the results. Btw no heavy oily feeling and apply to wet or dry hair…it’s so easy!

Let’s talk Rain Rot.. YES It’s preventable!!

Rain Rot, its rotten and yes we can stay proactive and PREVENT IT!!

-BASIC HORSEMANSHIP: BEST way to prevent… Groom Daily,  good hygiene and clean brushes!

Pick a proper curry too. Not just one to shed hair but one that will lift the dander and dirt out, without that your horse is not clean!! Currying will spread the natural protective body oils that keep the skin healthy and defends the invasion of the bacteria. With proper currying and hair brushing it allows oxygen to reach the skin. (Check out our curry for the best in currying)

-Keep the skin heathy with currying  along with Hydrate 24. It will hydrate and condition the skin so it does not become dry and cracked. Dry skin ccompromises the skin, cracking it, leaving it vulnerable to the bacteria where it can enter and propagate!.

-Reduce environmental factors: provide shelters during rainy weather.

-KEEP Mud off the skin….again curry daily!

-Waterproof blankets

-During the cold season if you have blanketed, remove blanket every few days so skin can breathe , now curry too!

-Every few days the horse should get the minimum  of a curry and brush over the entire body. Apply some shock or polisher to the manes, tails, forelock and feather too! Finish with Hydrate 24 system and buff for longer protection.

 

-If you don’t have the time to bring your horse in and “Make Pretty” just get the dirt off, keep hair and skin healthy…CURRY CURRY CURRY!

 

 

Good Luck…we can all use some! What I love about this design is that it represents so much to each individual. Superstitious or not the Horseshoe has always been represented as a good luck piece dating back to ancient times. Sharon Sabo designed this piece adding color stripes and stars…what do they mean??

Look at the product gallery pic for further details and scroll up for more history of the Horseshoe.

Now you can wear the good luck piece, its timeless a great accent to any clothing piece but a great conversational piece too! Bringing. you continuous Good Luck.

Hello!  I’m sure you recognize this girl from pictures I have sent you before. I’m not certain you got this lovely before and after 😂  so obviously I absolutely love these products if they can allow a horse to be a horse on the normal daily basis, the shine bright on show days!  I recently got a long coated German shepherd so I ordered your products to try on her.   I haven’t shown my horses in a while but I’ll be back at that this summer!  Thanks to your products getting them show ready with be a breeze!

SWEET BUT DEADLY , Dogs and the sweetener Xylitol

I was recently made aware of the Poisonous affects of  the sweetner “XYLITOL”  IT IS DEADLY  TO Dogs…DEADLY!. A freind on Face Book had shared an article,(THIS is the power of Facebook and instagram that I like) which I appreciated, eventhough it  was quite sad but it was a ncessary read. Once I read this I quickly used the internet to spread this article around.  In fact MANY  people don’t use this sweetener nor know about it either,  but if you do use it…be careful for it’s a poison. My biggest concerns are when we walk our dogs in public areas and what if they find a piece of gum or food with this sweetener….WOW…SCAREY…I will just have to walk them on tighter leashes. Be careful giving your dog a treat, ie: peanut butter or other that might have this in it!

So beware, read your labels before giving your dogs treats…poisons are lurking in our foods that are deadly to dogs!! (maybe to us too!)

CLEAN AND HAPPY

O.k summer is here and dry/ hot weather can be extremely harsh on the hair.  Take the combination of the Heat, Sun, Fly Sprays,  and more and Hair can dry out super fast. So get prepared and take action especially when there’s less humidity and moisture the hair is depleted more and it can become fragile, break, split, and tangle more.  We find with all seasons hair changes and one has to be prepared. The easy part is it’s easy, in fact very easy. Manely Long Hair provides the nourishment the hair needs for all seasons. Whether it’s just H24 or Polisher or SHOCK….layer with both and you’ll be providing the guard against the elements in addition to repairing and preventing at the same time.

Using the MLH system, hair does not need to be washed prior to usage, but outdoor elements (sand, heat, sun, grass, weeds, bugs, flies to name a few) may require more brushing and more washing than normal with more amounts of product for longer protection.  The MLH SHOCK is the go to for most,we suggest using it several times a week for that prevention and dry weather fix.  What is Shock? It’s the Polisher and Condtioner mixed together in hour hands, apply heavily and walk away…a leave in treatment that shocks the moisture in and protects the hair longer. Use as regular maintenance for the lighter manes and tails and watch the stains hydrate away and keeping them away longer…Prevent the damage now and enjoy grooming this summer!
