  1. No rinse, no worries - with NAF

    During the colder months, many of us have clipped and despite the cold weather, it can be uncomfortable for the horse to have a wash down.  Lifting grease and sweat from clipped and unclipped skin can be more challenging than the summer months which is why it is useful to have a helping hand.

    No rinse washes have gained in popularity over recent years as they can help to provide a revitalising and cleansing wash down without the continual requirement for bathing.  NAF have formulated a selection of no rinse washes designed for use all year round.  The choice is yours, each with different essential oils and ingredients targeted towards the health of the coat and its protein based amino acid structure.  

    NAF no rinse washes have the unique capability to lift grease and wash away the build-up of sweat from the hair follicle, leaving the coat feeling refreshed and revitalised.  With a safe formulation

  5. Bonfire Night Tips For Horses

    Many animal owners find Bonfire night stressful due to the negative impact fireworks have on pets. Here are our top tips for managing horses around fireworks.

    1. Keep to a routine

    If your horse is usually stabled overnight, then continue this and bring them in as normal. Take anything unncessary out of their stables, such as grooming boxes or rugs hanging up so they can't injure themselves on these. 

    If your horse is normally turned out, leave them in the field, if safe to do so, but ensure you have double-checked there are no holes in the ground or loose and dangerous fencing. If there isn't much grazing available, providing additional forage can keep them busy.

  10. Building Hooves To Last - with NAF

    Deliver LASTING hoof health

     

    For the past 30 years NAF have worked to formulate the right products targeted at hoof support, with a key focus on:

    -        Horn Growth
