We are officially in the middle of summer! Hope you are out there enjoying all that Mendocino and Lake Counties have to offer for horse lovers – from trail rides in the forest to gallops on the beach, parades, shows, rodeos and barrel races! Ride on!
Electrolyte supplementation is often thought of as only needed by performance horses; however, any horse that sweats for a prolonged period of time, regardless of reason, will benefit from electrolyte supplementation. Apple Elite Electrolytes provides a complete electrolyte formula to replace vital minerals and encourage water consumption year-round. And right now – August 3 through 31 – get a FREE 60cc (three doses) of Farnam’s Apple Elite Electrolyte Paste when you purchase the 5# tub of Apple Elite powder! The paste is perfect to keep in the trailer or saddlebags for use on the road or out on the trails, while your horse will benefit from the daily electrolyte supplementation of the powder dissolved in their drinking water. There is still plenty of hot weather ahead and as we head into Fall, we know that the changing weather can cause our horses to not drink enough water. Be prepared with a great deal on Apple Elite Electrolytes!

Don’t forget that Rainbow has all the supplies you need for a successful show, including those all-important “Whites!” Join in the fun by attending one of the livestock auctions, or watching a competition that might be new to you (chicken showmanship, anyone?) Here’s to a successful and fun Fair circuit!
