Looking for the perfect horsey gift? It’s likely in our gift guide!

From the Horsetrader sales staff - November 3rd, 2011 - Ingate Column

The “perfect gift” takes different shapes for different folks – a show jacket that’s 50 percent off, an easy-to-use camera system for hitching a trailer, or the one Breyer horse model that makes a collection complete. Find these and more gifts for horsepeople on your lists in the 2011 Horsetrader Holiday Gift Guide on pages 12-14. It’s the perfect place for shoppers to turn to — and it’s also the perfect place to advertise in if you have horsey gift items for sale. Call our office at 760-546-1184, or email Lori at lori.wilson@horsetrader.com

Triple Crown Nutrition has announced its latest innovation in how to feed. The “horse feed innovator” has made multiple feedings easier with the new Simple Feeder, manufactured in Ireland by AFSH, Ltd. Eric Haydt, VP of Sales for Triple Crown, says the Simple Feeder is a great system for owners looking for convenience, for horses that spend a considerable amount of time in the stall, and for horses requiring large amounts to eat. “We can now spread these feedings out over 16 times per day, if necessary.” says Eric. Simple Feeder’s are light, portable and easily mounted within stalls, plus, they plug into standard electrical outlets – which means no additional wiring! Simple Feeders act as another set of hands to help feed, especially those early morning or evening feedings or weekends away from the farm. The Simple Feeder is not intended to replace basic management practices. It can be used for sweet feeds or pellets. Studies have shown that multiple feedings reduce the potential for ulcers, stall vices like cribbing, help regulate weight gain, and are healthier for horses that require large amounts of feed per day. For more info, call (800) 267-7198, and see the ad on page 9.
