This rainy year is perfect to invest in a Smart Trough the

from horsetrader sales staff

ometimes the latest technology addresses the oldest of problems. One example is the Smart-Trough,

released this year as a new method to keep your horse’s water clean. Using the same principle as a fresh, moving stream, Smart Trough combined bio-mimicry and micro solar technology to keep water clean. Bio-mimicry is imitating nature’s strate- gies, and with a Smart-Trough Mosquito Pump, each water trough becomes a mini, recirculating river. No more stagnant water—a micro-solar, self-contained living water system that cleans itself, regulates temperature, and keeps the water oxygenat- ed and clear of algae bloom and aquatic bugs like mosquitos. The system is a supplement for your existing open-faced water trough. If you don’t have an old or new open-faced water trough, you should consider get ing rid of the small bucket or the small trough that you use, and get an open faced deep water trough and a Smart-Trough Mosquito Pump to give your horse, cat le, or live- stock more fresh water. It is possible to lead horses to water and make them drink with Smart-Trough. Ready to serve your

herd? The Smart-Trough is available online through The company’s exclusive distributor for California and Hawaii is Lori Mitchell of Equine Specialty Products. Lori can be reached at (805) 304- 3043.

It’s a NAG Bag—slow hay feeders for horses, cattle and other grazing animals. Providing your animals superior health and well-be- ing, natural alternative grazers creates a slow-feed- ing hay net that benefits any grazing animal. The NAG Bag com- pany’s mis- sion is for animals to have access to hay, at all times, as they would if they were grazing naturally. This helps prevent digestive issues, colic, ulcers, stall vices, cribbing, inhalant allergies and boredom. They have a variety of bags to suit your needs, be it a large or small round bale feeder, hands free, for large or small squares, flakes, stall or fence feeding, 1” mesh for ponies or miniature animals, or just a hay bag for your horse to push around his pen to alleviate boredom.

footing is, call the experts at GGT Footing™. An arena, done properly with drainage allows even the biggest rain to keep moving right on through. The secret is in the gravel, separation layer, pipes and the consultant you use! For instance, GGT Separation Layer provides proper layer separation and effi - cient drainage in equestrian arena building applications and is one of the best solutions in the industry. This puncture-resistant material keeps the multiple layers involved in equestrian arena construction from inter-blending, while still allowing for effi - cient drainage. The small pore size and high- fl ow capacity allows for effi cient drainage; it eff ectively stabilizes, separates and reinforc- es in a multitude of situations; the rugged


material maintains puncture resistance; and it provides an economical alternative to graded aggregate and sand fi lters. Call GGT for an expert arena builder who knows what they are doing. The cost of doing the arena right from the beginning will save you thou- sands of dollars and months of frustration. So… rain and ride! Nothing can stop you, not even a lit le water. That’s what “all-weather” means! Invest wisely. GGT Footing ™ is the equine footing
