Friday News & Notes from World Equestrian Brands

Oh, why is my horse wearing some kind of fuzzy sock thing in this photo? That’s because he has the most sensitive skin of all time and in the summer if there is ANY kind of friction on him, his hair rubs off. He also wears a cribbing strap when he goes out overnight, and was getting some tiny little rubs behind his ears, so obviously I knitted him a custom crib-strap super soft protective sock. It works great and he loves it.
