Pur­chase: Spray bot­tle

EQUUS - - Eq Hands on -

• Con­sid­er­a­tions: A spray bot­tle needs to do one thing— spray prod­uct where and when you need it. Re­li­a­bil­ity and longevity, then, are the key con­sid­er­a­tions. You may also want spray stream “op­tions” to change the size of the mist­ing range for more tar­geted ap­pli­ca­tion. If your horse is a skit­tish sort, the sound the sprayer makes may also be a con­sid­er­a­tion.

• Op­tions: Spray bot­tles come in a greater va­ri­ety of ma­te­ri­als and price points than you may imag­ine. Look for one made with chem­i­cally re­sis­tant ma­te­rial and plas­tic that can with­stand be­ing dropped on the aisle floor. The op­tion to re­place only the sprayer por­tion of the bot­tle and a “leak-proof” guar­an­tee are also ap­peal­ing. If you have a large herd or a sound-sen­si­tive horse, a heavy-duty pres­sur­ized pump sprayer can eas­ily de­liver a nearly silent mist for many sea­sons.

• Cost: From $1 for the most ba­sic of bot­tles to nearly $40 for an industrial-grade pres­sur­ized sprayer.
