Stephanie & her horse
"Rascal" - 07-04-2012
Rascal is a 33
year old TWH that has had EPM for 10 years as well as
arthritis. He is a very happy well adjusted
horse. He is turned out in the morning to roam
the property and gets to eat in all the good spots.
Late at night we put him in his stall for the night.
He has a swamp cooler in the barn near his stall that he
uses on and off all day and night. Ok he is a
very spoiled, very loved pet that is smart and knows what he
can and can't do. He knows better than to go in
my husband's garden or even in the yard around the house.
Even the truck delivery drivers bring him treats. A
few times a year we have to deal with infections or foreign
objects in his eyes.
I finally feel confident that we have him protected against
the constant problems and to ensure his comfort.
I enclosed a few pictures of him before and after his
Guardian Mask. We do have a horrible problem with the gnats
that live and lay eggs in the horses ears. I have a couple
of boarders that have horses that will not let you touch
their ears. While I knew I was determined to use
a Guardian Mask, I had to come up with some way to protect
With some ideas
from Vee at Guardian, I started with a fly bonnet over his
Guardian. It worked at first, but soon I kept finding the
fly bonnet everywhere but on his ears. The final solution
was to cut up a cheap mask to use for the ears, tape it
where it might fray and to attach his reflective gear.
I just slipped right over top the guardian. I
not only ended up protecting his ears, but my investment in
my Guardian as well. He seems to like it and it
definitely makes me feel confident about his comfort.
Thanks to Guardian.
