Allergy Socks?

Right before Spring Break I called my friends at Smarkpak to see if they had anything new in the way of allergy supplements.  They pulled up Kobi’s file and told me, “You have tried everything we have.” It was a sad day for me.

When the vet came out during the break to pull the horses coggins and float Kobi’s teeth, I asked him if there was anything new in allergy treatments.  He told me of this great antihistamine that seems to work.  I actually tried this last year, and poor Kobi had such a ‘medicine head’ that he didn’t know where his feet were and I was afraid to ride him.

Flipping through my latest edition of Equus Magazine, I came across a quarter page ad for SUMMER WHINNEY SOCKS.  As you all know, I’m willing to try anything.  So I ordered a set for Kobi (in sport pony size) for his allergies, and a set for Sugar (in standard/quarter horse size) for all of the biting flies that leave her legs blood streaked.

I was so impressed with the shipping.  I ordered them on Wednesday and got them on Thursday.  The horses will start wearing their new accessories over the weekend.  More to come!

About Heather Hamel

Growing up with horses is a little girls dream come true. Heather’s dream in life was to be a horse trainer - how dreams change - sort of! She moved to the wonderfully historic town of St. Augustine, Florida and was a historic tour guide and a ghost story teller while putting herself through college to become a special education teacher. After graduating, she felt the pull of horses in her life again. That's when she met Kobi! She learned quickly that when you own horses you become a part time vet, part time nutritionist, and full time equestrian. She wouldn't change a thing! In addition to being completely obsessed with her herd, she still teaches and tutors students with learning disabilities, and more specifically, dyslexia.
