Where did Fall go? Seems like we just slipped into winter and went from glorious autumn riding weather to Muck Boots and mud weather. Caring for horses during the wet weather can be a challenge. There’s mud, to be sure, and extra feed for the older horses, and extra shavings for the stalls and blankets to be put on and taken off … not to mention the around-the-ranch chores like cleaning up fallen leaves or cutting firewood. Rainbow Ag can help! Along with the great selection of outdoor clothing for every member of the family – new rain gear, jackets, beanie caps, warm socks and gloves are arriving in the store daily! – don’t miss the Fall Cost Plus 10% Sale on all outdoor power equipment, November 4 & 5, Friday and Saturday, at both Rainbow locations.
