Keep Colors True and Leather Soft with Farnam® Leather New® Total Care 2 in 1.

When you want your true colors to shine, look for a cleaner and conditioner that keeps all of your leather soft, supple and looking brand-new. Farnam, your partner in horse care™, is pleased to introduce Leather New® Total Care 2 in 1, a convenient new leather cleaner and conditioner in one. The innovative formula safely cleans and conditions all colors of tack without stripping dye from dark leather or darkening light leathers. With no silicones, waxes or petroleum distillates, the formula even keeps stitching looking new.

Leather New® Total Care, with its avocado oil-based formula, simplifies the leather care routine by cleaning and nourishing in one simple step. The creamy, mess-free texture rubs in easily to clean away dulling dirt and grime and reveal the leather’s natural shine. Conditioners work deeply into the leather to restore moisture and elasticity to older leather and help break-in new tack. The go-anywhere formula comes in a compact bottle that is small enough to put in tack bags for quick and easy touch-ups. Leather New® Total Care is also versatile enough to clean and protect nearly any type or color of leather, from equestrian tack to boots and purses, to furniture and car seats. Like all the nourishing Leather New® leather care products, Total Care 2 in 1 keeps leather looking new and feeling soft for a lifetime. For even deeper cleaning and conditioning, look for our two-step system of Leather New® Easy-Polishing Glycerin Saddle Soap and Leather New® Deep Conditioner & Restorer. For a limited time, horse owners can find $2 off instant savings coupons attached to the product in retail stores, or at www.farnam.com.

At the forefront of the aloe vera industry since 1971, Pharm-Aloe Equine’s president and founder, based upon research done at the University of Wisconsin, developed three great products to help with the overall health of humans — and now horses. It is their mission to provide the highest quality aloe vera at an affordable price so that all horse owners can give their horses Pharm-Aloe Equine daily. Pharm-Aloe Equine’s 4X Concentrate Aloe Juice, AloeGut Oral Tube, and Aloe Pellets support GI health, the immune system, aids in balancing stomach pH, supports normal detoxification and inflammatory response processes, and reinforces cellular communication. When used topically, Pharm-Aloe Equine supports the healing of skin tissue, helps itching, and soothes insect bites. Moreover, all aloe vera products are not created equal and most do not fulfill the claims they make that independent laboratory results show. Pharm-Aloe Equine has tested many on the market today and has compiled an aloe vera brand comparison chart which can be found on its website, PharmAloe.com. You’ll notice a calmer disposition and a healthier coat as just two of the more visible benefits. When you want the best for your horses, provide them with the extraordinary benefits of Pharm-Aloe Equine. You will love the results…guaranteed! Visit the website for more information, and watch the videos to see what people are saying about Pharm-Aloe Equine and their horses.

It’s hard to imagine San Diego County without the Del Mar Fairgrounds, but General Manager Tim Fennel announced in late May that unless the state-run facility gets some financial help, its future is uncertain.

The Fairgrounds urged residents to write their elected officials in support of a request by the 22nd District Agricultural Association, which operates the facility, for a $20 million share of the federal economic aid package available to state and local agencies affected by the COVID-19 crisis. A website, savethefairgrounds.com has sample letters, emails and tweets for people to use to lobby local leaders to help the fairgrounds. It lists telephone numbers for elected officials and suggests people can share their fairgrounds photos online, or buy a fairgrounds-printed T-shirt to support the cause. “We need people’s help,” said Tim. “I can’t stress that enough.”

Warm weather doesn’t have to be marked by tail swishing, head tossing and foot stomping. Make this the year you put an end to fly season woes with a pest control program that really works. Effective control demands more than just one weapon against annoying, disease-carrying flies, mosquitoes and ticks. That’s why Farnam has developed a complete arsenal of pest control products to block, repel and reduce, enabling you to protect both horse and premises by building your own powerful No Fly Zone.

The Farnam’s “No Fly Zone” Sweepstakes have been such a success, the company is doing it again, even giving horse owners a choice of which products they can win. When you enter online, you’ll have the opportunity to select which No Fly Zone Prize Package you prefer should you win. Ten lucky winners will be chosen by random drawing to each receive approximately $500 in Farnam pest control products. In addition, during each week of the contest Farnam will select a winner to receive a No Fly Zone T-shirt.

Fast becoming one of the largest multi-breed horse shows on the West Coast (if not the largest!), it will again benefit the fight against cancer.

Burbank Showcase celebrates a full spectrum of horse breeds and disciplines, including but not limited to American Saddlebred, Andalusian, Friesian, Gypsy, Lusitano and Mustang, with a variety of events that will include open Dressage, Cowboy Dressage (new this year!), USEF English and Western Pleasure Classes and Working Equitation. Also new this year will be the Open Driving Show, recognized by the American Driving Society, and also a special new Showcase Area to show off each of the breeds.

The five-day horse show will have something for everyone, even special open classes for horses not registered in any of the above breeds. Last year’s event had close to 300 show horses. Food, drink and various other vendors will be available throughout the weekend. Burbank Showcase Horse Show has something for everyone, and admission is free to the public. Last year, a steady stream of public spectators attended throughout the duration of the event.
