Introducing "Feather Shield" The new improved pig oil.
The original pig oil has been around for a long time for our equine friends to help treat a variety of conditions.
Equine Soap Co. have been tinkering for many months making and trialing a new improved, more natural version.
Ingredients include coconut oil, lanolin, beeswax, sulfur and Australian tea tree oil.
Feather shield works well in slowing down the awful bog burn and mud fever we see after wet weather or if your horse favors swimming in the local dam.
The ingredients help prevent the feather from becoming brittle and breaking off, keeping the good moisture in and the mud out by creating a water repellent barrier between the horses skin and the mud. It will also help manage mites with the inclusion of sulfur.
It is easily applied, and a little goes a long way!
Instructions – after washing your feather or effected area, apply a small amount and work through the hair to the skin to apply an even coating, apply once a week to begin with then once every 2 weeks, then as needed to maintain the area.
Always test a small area before use.
* Yes dirt will stick but don't panic it will wash out ! We also stock a pre wash degreaser for feather - which is excellent to use to ensure all traces of oil and other products are removed before using our sulphur coconut soap for mite treatment. It is important to make sure no oil based products are present on hair when treating mite so the product can penetrate sufficiently to work. The pre wash degreaser is also brilliant to make light work out of scrubbing when washing for shows etc .....especially after a wet winter.
* Note: if product solidifies in texture during colder weather, warm in hands first to make it easier to apply. Or store in a warm place or sit bucket in warm water before use.
Pease see your vet for advice in regards to any ongoing issues
