Drying Sweaty Horses in Winter

Winter Riding

Riding horses in the winter comes with a set of challenges. And riders know that one of the biggest ones is drying a sweaty horse after a cold ride. Because we don’t want our horses to catch a chill, we have to spend a lot of extra time making sure they’re dry. Another obstacle, if you use a blanket or sheet, is throwing it on a damp horse. Because we know this will only trap moisture on the skin, causing a new slew of issues.

“I absolutely love this product. I use it after riding to absorb sweat, in between baths, to treat and prevent sweet itch on my sensitive horses, in the winter as a bathing alternative, and as a daily preventative and to treat / prevent scratches on my feathered horses. You can use this product for both dogs and horses with ease. The light mint scent is pleasant. It is a staple in my training program and my Great Danes love it too ! I do not go anywhere without it and I always have my tack room stocked!”

COAT DEFENSE® is here to change that.

Signs of sweet itch usually appear 48-72 hours after being bitten, symptoms include…

  • Intense itchiness

• Avoiding pasture time during dusk and dawn

• Use fly sheets and fly sprays

• Antihistamines or corticosteroids as needed

 How does COAT DEFENSE® help ALLEVIATE
sweet itch before it sets in?

• COAT DEFENSE® daily PREVENTATIVE POWDER can be used just as it states, daily, to reduce the severity of the allergic reaction, calming the reaction of the bites, so they don’t become as inflamed, while keeping rashes and hives minimal, all while providing a healthy environment that still allows skin to breathe and create natural oils

• COAT DEFENSE® TROUBLE SPOT DRYING PASTE can be smeared on sensitive, bite prone areas to provide a BARRIER bugs can’t penetrate, along the belly line, under the jaw, and other trouble spots

How does COAT DEFENSE® work to RELIEVE
the symptoms of existing sweet itch?

  • COAT DEFENSE® daily PREVENTATIVE POWDER can be sprinkled all over on to help calm and relieve compromised skin and provide relief to areas

  • By creating a “scab” over weeping sores and welts, COAT DEFENSE® TROUBLE SPOT DRYING PASTE protects the raw sweet itch sores from external agents or bugs, all while drawing out the toxins from insect salvia, reducing swelling while soothing itchiness and pain, and allowing skin cells to repair themselves faster and without interference

“Just wanted to tell you that the coat defense powder is the best product I’ve ever used on my horse’s coat. We’ve avoided the summer rashes and irritations for the first time in years and her coat looks great. The powder is a great preventative and treatment for any existing skin irritations.”

— Cory Keur

COAT DEFENSE® isn’t just for horses, it’s for people too…

“The biting gnats, and midges seem to irritate their legs and also start gnawing in their under belly. The powder works great for this! ”

— Michael Clark

Summer is meant to be enjoyed with your horse, don’t let sweet itch put a stop to that. Pickup some COAT DEFENSE® and enjoy the season!

 “I can not thank COAT DEFENSE® enough for their immediate response to my desperate seek for help! This could not have happened at a worse time!

How to Treat Bald Spots on Horses

MIRACLE IN A JAR! Amazing product. Was skeptical at first… but after my mare developed an extreme case of rain rot on 85% of her body… I was willing to try anything! We went from 85% coverage to 5% in 3 days / 1 treatment! Now we’re regrowing hair!” – Samantha Justilian

This works very well!! I was very skeptical at first, my mare gets rain rot a lot as she’s gotten older. I used this on her and the rain rot came off so easily, she had it bad enough where she was almost bald on some areas of her back. I applied the Powder for 2 days, and a week later the hair has grown back and her skin is healthy!” – Deann Pendergrass

How to Treat Rain Rot in Winter

Freezing Temps. Endless Snow. Icy Pastures.
Rain Rot.

Treating rain rot on horses in the winter can be a struggle, but not anymore! WATCH as COAT DEFENSE® daily PREVENTATIVE POWDER takes it off INSTANTLY!

 

What is Rain Rot in horses?

Rain rot shares comes from a bacterium called dermatophilus congolensis. This bacteria is in a family called actinomycetes, these little things act like both bacteria and fungi. Horses naturally have these organisms on their skin; they lay dormant until rainy, wet conditions cause it to flare-up. 

We LOVE it!! It cleared up Gidget’s rain rot super fast! We’ve been using the powder as a preventative on Gidget’s back after rides and it has really kept the rain rot at bay. So it’s worth the purchase!

LeeAnn Stone Johnson, Facebook Review

How do you treat rain rot in winter?

The solution to starving off this bacterium is keep your horse’s skin dry. One option is keeping your horse inside. But this simply isn’t an option for some horses. Another way to keep your horse dry is to use a turnout sheet. But this can trap moisture and could actually fuel the bacteria. Winter makes wet treatments for rain rot particulary difficult due to freezing temps.

So, we need to keep our horse’s skin dry, but how?

That’s where COAT DEFENSE® daily PREVENTATIVE POWDER comes in.

Our Funk Free Fall Package includes a 10oz TROUBLE SPOT DRYING PASTE and 24 oz PRO SIZE DAILY PREVENTATIVE POWDER to help alleviate all your fall ailments for only $49! The bonus? FREE SHIPPING!

Coat defense powder is wonderful! Last year it was a very rainy season the rain rot was bad! My vet said to remove the scabs and let it dry out. It didn’t work and it hurt him pulling off the scabs. Then this year I came across coat defense powder it killed the fugues quickly! Now I use it daily as a preventative treatment and it keeps it away. He also had scratches on his feet vet gave me antibiotic ointment that didn’t work so I tried the drying paste over night it dried up! I highly recommend these products! They are excellent!

Bonnie Belmonte, Facebook Review

Monica Marshall DC, Facebook Review

How does COAT DEFENSE® daily PREVENTATIVE POWDER work to treat rain rot?

With the bacterium gone, and by using the COAT DEFENSE® daily PREVENTATIVE POWDER to keep them away, your horse’s skin can safely heal.

How To Treat Mud Fever In Horses

End the Scabs NOW!

Mud Fever, sometimes called Scratches or Cannon Crud, can be a a real pain.

UNTIL NOW!

Get clean, scab-free legs with COAT DEFENSE®!


What is Mud Fever?

Mud fever is a catchall phrase for a variety of skin issues that arise in damp, muddy conditions. And rain rot shares the same characteristics, just typically on the back, withers or neck. The same bacterium, dermatophilus congolensis, causes both conditions, along with many others.

Here is the interesting thing about this bacteria, it’s in a family called actinomycetes. Actinomycetes  behave like both bacteria and fungi. This is why the debate on how to treat mud fever lasted so long. Because it displays symptoms of both. Horses naturally have these organisms on their skin; they lay dormant until muddy, damp conditions cause them to flare-up.

“I am a believer! It’s a miracle for Mud Fever. I have been dealing with this issue for months! I applied 2 applications; Sunday and Tuesday and then had to go out of town. I came home last night, pulled him out of the stall to hose his leg down and the scabs were gone. Down to fresh skin!”

— JILL ROMASK; MIDDLEFIELD, OHIO

Our Heal and Prevent Package includes a 24oz TROUBLE SPOT DRYING PASTE and 8oz DAILY PREVENTATIVE POWDER to help alleviate all your open skin ailments for only $54! The bonus? FREE SHIPPING!

How do you treat Mud Fever?

The solution to starving off this bacterium is to keep your horse’s skin dry. Sounds easy, right? But with constant rain and horses coming in and out, most pastures turn to mud pits. We rinse, and scrub, and dry in an endless cycle. But what if there was an easier way?

That’s where COAT DEFENSE® TROUBLE SPOT DRYING PASTE comes in.

“No matter how well you care for your horses, skin funk can show up and just not go away. We treated this to no avail – until we tried COAT DEFENSE. In just a week we noticed a huge difference! The best part is, it’s all-natural. Check it out and see for yourself how fast it works!”

— SHARON WHITE; LAST FRONTIER FARM, VIRGINIA

What’s COAT DEFENSE® TROUBLE SPOT DRYING PASTE?

COAT DEFENSE® is an all natural product line that only uses readable, recognizable ingredients. And when they’re combined, become a powerful agent against equine skin issues. Handmade in the USA, it’s a simple, safe solution to equine skin problems.

It’s used AFTER the skin is heavily inflamed or broken.  The thick consistency creates a protective barrier and defends the skin cells from pathogens and moisture.  Fungus and bacteria require moisture to survive and thrive. COAT DEFENSE® TROUBLE SPOT DRYING PASTE provides the skin with a dry environment to enable healing, it continuously draws out moisture, and allows the body to repair damaged cells.

“I really like the products. I had really great results! I found that the paste isolated the fungus and made it easy for me to remove it without agitating the entire leg and the powder complimented the paste very well for maintaining a dry area. This stuff is very cool, I will turn to these products first from now on!”

— HILLARY CHAREN, BARN MANAGER, HAINESPORT, NJ

How does COAT DEFENSE® work to TREAT mud fever?

The ingredients in COAT DEFENSE® TROUBLE SPOT DRYING PASTE work to keep moisture to a minimum, starving the bacterium of their food source. The paste dries to create a scab like barrier, keeping external agents out while still allowing the horse’s skin cells to safely repair themselves.
