My other NAF hero product is the Silky Mane and Tail Detangler, a must have for anyone who has a pony with a thick mane and tail as Bobo has, a spray every few days keeps his mane and tail tangle free!
Julie at Windmill Feeds with her horse Jack the Fell Pony
Townend Pippin aka Jack. 12 yr old Fell Pony gelding.
Jack arrived at the stud as a 6month old colt destined to be the new stallion at the stud. He was turned away to grow up. At 3 he was turned out with his first mares, with great success. By the time he was 7 he was brought in from the field as now his daughters had reach age. This is how he stayed untill he was 91/2 yrs old (keeping the cows company). The elderly owner finally decided to have him gelded. 3 months later he was finally turned out again. He failed to thrive and became ill. Back into the stable he went. Gradually he improved with the help of NAF immufort and was turned out again. At this point the stud owner became too ill to keep the stud going and it was decided to disperse the stock. All that was left were Jack and his youngest daughter Justa. June 2015 Jack left the farm by tractor and cattle trailer to attend his first in-hand show. (He had not left the farm since he arrived at 6months old). In a well attended local show he came 2nd, and found his new owner. Ellice Johnson fell head over heals in love with him. She persuaded her parents to let her have him on loan to break him in (he was 11 yrs old) as a summer project. His charm won everyone over and Ellice became his official owner at Christmas 2015. So time to take him out to see the world. Heathfield show was the plan. So for 3 months leading upto the show he was fed NAF linseed oil, and show prep bathed in naf wash and show dark coat shampoo. The polishing began. Silky mane and tail to tame his wild mane and tail, oil it well on his muzzle and eyes, paint it black on his hooves and the final touch of Razzle Dazzle them all over Townend Pippin was ready for the ring.
As the light caught his coat he shone much like his personality. He was a total gentlemen and foot perfect. Placing a respectable 2nd in his class.
Happy smiles all round.
The next step is to get him shiny enough to visit HRH The Queen as 90 Fell ponies provide a guard of honour at Windsor Castle in celebration of the Queen's 90th Birthday.
Fingers crossed for Ellice and Jack.
We use quite a few NAF products, our favourite is the Silky. Silky is an essential product when going to competitions but it is also used at home to keep our horses manes and tails lovely and tangle free. Our horses live out and their tails get rather mucky, it keeps their tails thick and because it helps reduce tangles, it means less hair is pulled out when grooming. We highly recommend this product for all horse owners!

Many thanks, Hayley
