Very Highly Recommended Tried and Tested Review for Wonder Balm from Equine Magazine – Gillian McMurray
This comes in a neat little pot, ideal for going in the pocket and thus useful over the summer months when checking ponies in the fields. It is made from organic shea butter with added natural essential oils. It has a pleasant lavender smell and since it is made of a waxy substance, it adheres well to the skin. I used it on minor cuts and found it absorbed well into the skin, keeping the abrasions moist and giving a healthy environment for quicker healing. This wonder balm is also recommended for use on hooves and I did rub some into the coronet band of one of the ponies. It absorbed well and softened rough horn on this area. I’m sure with regular use it would make a difference to the hooves but it used rather a lot product from the pot, so I feel its best use is for minor cuts and scratches where it definitely seems to help healing.
Very Highly Recommended Tried and Tested Review for Flea and Bug Repellent from Equine Magazine – Sue Porter
Omg, this is great. Although I still have administered the regular veterinary flea/tick repellent, I have used this product on a weekly basis.
As the dogs are walked daily in fields, either from home or when we’re elsewhere with the caravan, it’s great to have the added protection this product gives.
Not only have the dogs been regularly sprayed, but so have their beds and any other pieces of furniture I find them on, as it all adds to the repellent factor, and it smells so good too. As it’s made from natural oils I also sprayed it on myself when I was plagues with ‘mossies’ – and it worked!! So, I shall be keeping a bottle of this with my traveling canine kit.

This has been used two to three times a week since receiving it as I was concerned about the heat emanating from the pavements when the dogs were being walked. Suffice to say you’d not get me walking around in bare feet! It helps protect the pads from the hot concrete/tarmac and also from the heat of the sand while on holiday. The pads were becoming sore and dry but now they look so much healthier. I will continue to use it regularly, especially when winter comes, as the road grit and ice can cause burns on the pads. P.s. great on rough skin on my feet too!!
Highly Recommended Tried and Tested Review for Flea and Bug Repellent from Equine Magazine – Gillian McMurray
I was looking forward to trialling this as it was a completely new brand to me. The repellent s made from a selection of natural essential oils as opposed to chemicals which I felt would be better for their skins. Our ponies often have very small ticks on their faces and bodies, especially in the spring due to the fact that wild deer can be seen sharing their fields. The product comes in a spray bottle but rather than having the ponies disappear at the first sound, I used t on a sponge to rub over their faces. I tried it on three young ponies out of five in the same field. Used daily for two weeks, there appeared to be a noticeable difference between the two groups, as I scarcely found any ticks on the trial group. It also seemed to repel clegs from biting the ponies. I am interested in continuing to assess this repellent over the summer as the larger ticks appear, to see if it is still as successful in preventing these ones from attaching themselves to the ponies.
