How do we know Spring is finally coming? Well, the horses are shedding, the pastures are growing and the Spring Alfalfa Booking Sale is March 7th to 12th. Just order and pay for your quality, 3-wire Alfalfa hay and pick it up any time in March. Rainbow worked with our long-time hay supplier, Menne Ranch, to bring you the best price of the season on mountain Alfalfa Hay – $11.99 per bale! 50 bale limit per customer, as supplies are limited per store, so come in and order your alfalfa early! There will be special prices on grass and grass alfalfa hay at $19.99/bale, and 3-way hay at $11.99! These prices are good during the sale dates only – March 7 – 12 (no booking.)
When you come into Rainbow to order your hay, take a look at all the new clothing coming in for spring! The weather will warm up (someday!) and your whole family will be looking good in new styles from Wrangler, Rock 47, Carhartt, Cowgirl Tuff and more! Be ready for the first horse shows, rodeos and trail rides in real Western attire for real Western folks!

Did we mention that the horses are shedding? Some time spent grooming our horses is great therapy – we’re outside, we’re with our horses and we have a mouthful of hair! Somehow, horsepeople don’t mind this! If your grooming tote is getting beat up and your brushes are missing their bristles, don’t forget that Rainbow has a complete line of grooming supplies including shampoos, shedding blades, and clippers. Come in for some new tools and have your pony looking great in no time. This rainy winter will also bring on green grass like we have not seen in a few years of drought. Horses love it, but we must be careful with most horses when putting them on pasture for the first times. The switch from dry hay to lush grass can cause all kinds of problems, so check out the Purina article about safely making the switch to pasture.
Pass your pony a treat after all that grooming and save some $$ with this month’s subscriber coupon for 20% off Purina Horse Treats. With several flavors to choose from, there is sure to be one that will have your horse nickering for more!
