Tip Top Turnout
Keeping your horse’s hair, tail, and hooves in top condition can be challenging during the fall as the weather changes and his winter coat begins to grow in. But, it becomes increasingly important to do so during shifts in the seasons.
Cold weather makes baths few and far between, and dry air strips a horse’s coat of its natural moisture. Plus, seasonal mud and frozen ground can wreak havoc on hooves and legs. Corro recommends you arm yourself with spot remover, coat moisturizer, tail conditioner, and hoof oil as you prepare for winter. This list will be your best friend and help keep your horse looking, and feeling, its best.
