EQUUS - - Eq Handson I -

Next time you're at the thrift store, pick up an in­ex­pen­sive hair dryer for the barn. these ap­pli­ances have a mul­ti­tude of uses, par­tic­u­larly in the win­ter:

• Dry­ing small ar­eas of a horse’s coat, such as pasterns be­ing treated for scratches. use the low­est set­ting to avoid in­ad­ver­tent over­heat­ing and dam­age.

• De-ic­ing frozen locks and latches af­ter a win­ter storm

• Warm­ing bits (just be care­ful you don’t over­heat them)

• Soft­en­ing frozen oint­ments, again us­ing to low­est set­ting.
