Curicyn™

Curicyn Is Different…Curicyn™ was developed in its initial formulation to address mastitis in dairy cattle. When its effectiveness was immediately recognized, the applications were expanded to such issues as pink eye in cattle, saddle sores on horses, hoof rot and white line disease. The results were quite impressive. Various chemistry parameters have been optimized to create a unique and synergistic formula that very effectively helps eliminate inflammation while simultaneously stimulating the healthy rejuvenation of new tissue. Extensive testing on mixtures containing some of the compounds in Curicyn has been performed on common bacteria strains known to be troublesome in equine, cattle, companion pets and other animals. These laboratory results and field trials indicate Curicyn to be highly effective as a topical wound and skin wash formula.

All of the ingredients in Curicyn are “food grade” or “high purity” ingredients. Two of the lesser, but potent ingredients are found in food sources in high concentrations and they naturally will not promote bacterial growth. One of them has been identified by the World Health Organization as an essential health element. This synergistic mixture accelerates the animals own natural healing mechanisms. Curicyn offers unparalleled value. Our product pricing is exceptional. Similar products currently available do not possess the effective properties of Curicyn, all in a product that is non-toxic and environmentally compatible. Learn more here.

Colorful Manes and Tails

Colorful Manes and Tails was founded in the majestic Bitterroot Valley of Montana. Our history traces back six generations since 1860’s. Horses have always been a huge part of our lives from rodeos and parades, to beautiful trail rides throughout the valley. The inspiration came from my youngest daughter’s passion for painting horses. Her vivid and vibrant eye for a colorful palette canvas inspired this idea to life. Not only will these hair extensions “add some color to your ride” but will speak for themselves! Some interesting facts, adding RED to a horse’s tail warns that he/she is a kicker, GREEN to show that he/she is green or unpredictable, and YELLOW to symbolize that he is a stallion!

Colorful Manes and Tails has been featured in magazines such as Western Horseman, Horse Illustrated, Horse and Rider, Young Rider, and Rocky Mountain Rider. You can also find us on Facebook or visit them at www.ColorfulManesandTails.com.

Spalding Fly Predators

A family operated natural fly control company since 1976, Spalding Labs® sells necessities like biological fly control, odor eliminators, & more. When you stop and think of all the things you bought last summer to help with flies it probably added up to real money and a lot of effort. And did it work well? This year why not fix the problem at its source rather than just treat the symptoms. Try Fly Predators® brand beneficial insects. They’re the safe, easy to use alternative to spraying gallons of pesticide, hanging dozens of stinky traps or putting up acres of sticky strips only to have the flies just keep coming back. And they keep coming back because all those things only affect the adult fly stage ignoring the 90% yet to emerge. So rather than doing what you did last year, and having the same fly problem this year, break the cycle with Fly Predators. You’ll have less flies for sure and probably spend less too.
