Is is Beneficial to Keep Legs Warm?

We always talk about keeping horse legs cool with HUSK horse boots and bandages, but what about keeping them warm?  Particularly in the Winter, is it dangerous let horse legs get too cold? To start with Kentucky Equine Research quote that although horses sometimes stand in deep snow, their lower limbs and hooves almost never suffer damage from the cold. This is because the legs below the knees and hocks are made up mostly of bones and tendons, tissues that don’t freeze easily. In extreme cold temperatures, blood-shunting mechanisms in the hooves alter circulation patterns to preserve body warmth, and...

Controlling parasites with magnetism and the moon - WOW!

Controlling parasites with magnetism and the moon - WOW!

Did you know you can effectively control parasites with magnetism and the moon? Trust us, it’s not lunacy! As HUSK is all about keeping the horse in its most natural environment with its breathable horse boots and saddle pads, it seemed only natural to be excited about this revelations!  A chemical wormers such as Panacur, Equest or Eqvalan are by nature and design a toxic substances in order to kill the worms. They are designed to kill or disable parasites, and hopefully not cause too much damage to the host animal in the process. The trick is to find the dose and frequency that...

Appreciating the Horse - My Story

We've all got many stories to share as to how and why we fell in love with horses, but I thought I would share mine, as it's a huge theme in my life and led me to starting HUSK.

HUSK's Commitment to Our Planet

HUSK's Commitment to Our Planet

Having attended BETA, Horse of the Year Show, and Olympia, one of the lasting memories was the smell and abundance of plastic, in all shapes and colours!  Grooming products, leg protection, packaging, it was everywhere!  And I asked myself, what are people going to do with the gear when they don't want it anymore?  What will happen to it?  Do we even consider this when we make purchases?   Let's focus on packaging for example, the product we buy arrives in our hands and the packaging is how we judge it!  Very often, the more fancy the packaging, the more...

Believing in yourself - non tangible abundance

Believing in yourself - non tangible abundance

How hard is it to really believe in yourself?!  We all have dreams, yet there is always a reason to doubt the possibilities.  Not enough time, not qualified, not enough money, simply not good enough (there's always someone to compare yourself to!). But imagine if you did just believe that it was possible?   What's the secret to success?  To being able to believe in oneself?  I can only offer advice from my experience, but I hope it inspires at least some of you to try something that you've always wanted, but put off.   I firmly believe that the...
