Should I Blanket My Horse?

Blanketing 101

The days are getting shorter and the weather is becoming colder. The two biggest questions we get at this time of year – “Should I blanket my horse?” and “Which blanket should I choose?”.

Big Dee's | Horse BlanketsQuestion #1: Should I blanket my horse?

Answer – Well, that’s a loaded question. Let us ask you a few first:

What kind of hair coat does your horse have? Does your horse grow hair easily?  The winter horse coat comes in at two different levels – one is a shorter layer for insulation, the next is a longer layer that protects the lower layer from rain, snow and wind.  We’ve all seen those horses that look like woolly mammoths – hair that is so thick you feel bad for the owner that has to shed it out in the spring. Other horses don’t grow as much – if your horse doesn’t have a thick, luxurious coat – he probably needs an extra layer to keep warm.

Do you body clip in the winter? If you show through the winter or you work your horse regularly and don’t want to dry out a long coat often – you may body clip your horse during the winter. Without that extra hair your horse will need to be blanketed. It’s always a good idea to make sure that your horse is dry before putting the blanket on.

What kind of shelter does your horse have?  While some of our horses stay in the barn during the winter there are many others that get to go out during the day or stay out 24/7. If your horse is one that stays out 24/7, is there a place that he can get away from the precipitation and blustery weather? A horses coat will most often grow in enough to keep them warm – but sometimes they don’t. Depending on the shelter and hair coat you may need an extra layer of warmth for your horse.

How old is your horse and are they in a good body condition? Aging seniors sometimes get chilled, even with thick coats. Staying attentive to their warmth and needs will alert you to whether or not they need an extra layer. Horses that may have compromised immune systems or are recovering from any medical conditions will need extra help staying warm until they are back to their healthy state. Keeping them warm with an appropriate blanket will help them recover faster and safer as well as ease your mind.

Now that you’ve thought about your horse’s coat, shelter, age and body condition – you may be wondering which blanket you should choose.

Big Dee's | Horse BlanketsQuestion #2 – Which blanket should I choose?

Answer – It really depends on your answers from above. If you have  a horse that doesn’t have a thick coat, is outside and you live in the cold Northern states – you probably need a heavyweight, as the temps get warmer going further south you may only need a midweight or simple sheet.

Big Dee’s Country Pride blankets come in a variety of outer-coverings and thicknesses as well as turnout or stable blanket styles.

Turnout Blankets
Big Dee's Tack & Vet Supplies | Turnout Blankets
1680 Denier Turnout Blankets  – These are the some of the toughest, most durable blankets that you can buy. These turnouts have a high tear resistance. They are DuPont Teflon coated for superior wind and water proofing. The material is also breathable.

Many of the 1680D turnouts come with an inner air mesh membrane for extreme breathability and to wick away moisture, like the Ice Shield. Some have detachable hoods like the Olympia and an attached hood like the Rainier. If you’re looking for a bit of extra protection without a full hood, there are also high neck options like the Vortex. Some also come with a double adjustable snap and buckle open front closure with Velcro assist to allow for maximum adjustment like the Arctic Shield. The 1680 Denier blankets come in a range of poly-fill insulation including Heavyweight, Midweight and Lightweight warmth.

Big Dee's Tack & Vet Supplies | Turnout Blankets

1200 Denier Turnout Blankets – Strong, heavy-duty ripstop material. 1200D is the density of the yarn used in the making of the outercovering. DuPont Teflon coated for superior wind and waterproofing. The material is also breathable.

Most of 1200D turnouts come with a smooth, nylon lining that helps to keep the horse’s hair slick and clean like the Glacier.  The Paladin offers an inner mesh membrane to wick away moisture as well as high neck coverage. New, fun patterns can be seen on the Vancouver and our signature classics like the Storm Pro and Snow Ridge are tried and true winter blankets that hold up against demanding winters. The 1200 Denier blankets come in a range of poly-fill insulation including Heavyweight, Midweight and Lightweight warmth.

Big Dee's Tack & Vet Supply | Turnout Blankets
600 Denier Turnout Blankets – Strong, ripstop material. 600D is half the density of the 1200D turnouts. Great for horses that aren’t extremely tough on their blankets. DuPont Teflon coated for superior wind and waterproofing. The material is also breathable.

The 600D turnouts come with a smooth, nylon lining that helps to keep the horse’s hair slick and clean. Miniature horse blankets are available in the 600D with a strong velcro bellyband. The Klondike features a fun new argyle pattern and the Nordic is a turnout favorite. Available weights include Heavyweight or sheet with no insulation.

Stable Blankets
Big Dee's Tack & Vet Supplies | Stable Blankets
1200 Denier Stable Blankets 
– One of the toughest stable blankets you can buy. Available in tight weave Cordura material or Polypropylene. Cordura material stable blankets like the Squall  come in a bellyband style that makes it easy to stay in place with secure velcro. Polypropylene material like the Highland are tough stable blankets that also have gussets for maximum freedom of movement. The Highland also comes in Miniature Horse sizes. Many weights are available ranging from Heavyweight to Lightweight.

Big Dee's Tack & Vet Supplies | Stable Blankets

420 Denier Stable Blankets – One of our most popular stable blanket options.  The Sentinel Channel Quilt is a favorite for it’s durability and quality. It has an open two buckle front for ease and convenience. The Diamond Quilt offers a strong and secure velcro bellyband. The Polarfleece Lined Sheet is a great choice to extra warmth.

Turnout & Rain Sheets
Big Dee's | Turnout Sheets

Turnout & Rain sheets are perfect for horses that need an extra for protection from the elements, but not the poly-fill for warmth. Our large selection found here offers every type of outdoor sheet you may need – from a rain sheet to protect horse and tack at a show to heavy-duty strength for horses that are tough on blankets.

Stable Sheets
Big Dee's | Stable Sheet

Stable sheets are great for keeping your horse protected and clean while in the barn, without the heavy fill and warmth of a stable blanket. We carry many options from cotton to nylon that can be found here.

Coolers & Anti-Sweats
Big Dee's | Cooler

Our large selection of Coolers & Anti-Sweat Sheets can be found here at Big Dee’s Tack & Vet Supplies. Coolers serve a wide range from cooling out, keeping a horse warm by itself or under a blanket and other everyday uses.

New Fall Equestrian Clothing!

Big Dee's | Fall Apparel

Fall Has Truly Arrived!

Before the temperature even started to drop, fall began arriving here at Big Dee’s! In our store we have been busy changing over displays and decor to match the fall season. Gone are the tank tops and bright colors of spring, they have been replaced by warm winter coats, cozy pullovers, and fashionable vests in a warm rich color pallet.

Have you ever wondered the process that brings all the fun fall styles into Big Dee’s? Well here is a firsthand account written by one of our buyers (Christie Ferrara)  that will give you some insight into the process from the very beginning stages:

Big Dee's Fall Apparel

Most people don’t realize it, but while you’re thinking spring, we in the purchasing world have bypassed the tulips and blazing heat of summer and moved right into the blistering cold of Winter.  If you have ever thought “Wow, I’d love to purchase at a place like Big Dee’s“, it may not be as easy as you think.  First, you need to bypass your horse loving mentality and move into a practical mode. Let’s face it, when you own horses (like most of us do) you could literally drown in the sea of possibilities to clothe yourself and your horse and have lots of fun doing it.  Going to trade shows and seeing the latest and greatest riding gear, clothes and boots is a shopper’s paradise! So let’s rein it in and talk about the great things we get to see and decide to purchase for our customers.

A trade show is one great place to see all of the latest innovations in riding gear, the latest trending colors and styles of clothing and footwear for a variety of disciplines.  Vendors set up huge booths and talk to you one on one about what is so great about each of the products they carry.  Now you as the buyer must first, think about this:  they are in the business to sell “their” product, so what is it that YOU like about the product?  Secondly, ask yourself these questions: Have your customers asked for something like this? Have you tried a product like this before? Would YOU use this product? What is trending in your industry?  What are the “hot” colors? What are some of the features to you like? What is your customer willing to pay for this? Make some mental notes, jot them down and snap a picture if you can because you’re going to need them!

After a long day of viewing fabulous items the time for buyer collaboration begins. You must now dig out your notes, and catalogs and head to the round table.  Luckily for us, we have a few different perspectives, owners, riders in a variety of disciplines, and industry professionals, which allows us the ability to whittle down the variety of choices and think outside of the box.  This is just a small glimpse of what we do purchasing here at Big Dee’s.  Hopefully, our staff and customers are just as excited as we are about the products we choose.  When we get to read great reviews on some of the exciting new apparel for this season, we know we’ve done something right!

Big Dee's Fall Apparel

Our store staff, (who are horse lovers just like  you) are always excited to see the seasons new  styles as they arrive.

Here are some of their favorite picks:

Brendana Coat from Schockemohle Sports | Big Dee'sThe first pick was from Cathy Brogan, here is what she picked, and why – “Love at first sight for me is the NEW Brendana Coat from Schockemohle Sports. It’s very trendy and versatile. Some of the features I really like are the two way zipper, the zipper in the back, and the detachable hood with a stand up collar. The weight of this coat is fabulous, it will keep the rain and wind out without all the extra bulk. You will look good on and off your horse if you choose this style like I did!”

Noble Outfitters Elements Cowl Neck Sweatshirt | Big Dee'sNext up our store manager Tabi Day had this to say about Noble Outfitters Elements Cowl Neck Sweatshirt. “I absolutely love this sweatshirt, the fit is perfect for any shape.  It’s drawstring at the top of neckline allows you to adjust the fit comfortably around your neck. It will keep the wind off your neck without the bulk of a scarf. It is also fitted around the wrist to keep your arms warm and stop a breeze from creeping in. I own this sweatshirt in both colors! If you try it on you will buy one in a new color every fall like I do.”

Pikeur Evita Vest | Big Dee'sEmily’s Pick The Pikeur Evita Vest is the perfect style for the barn! It’s warm, comfortable, and has zippered pockets to keep valuables in. The Faux fur detachable hood adds style and keeps your face shielded from the chilly winter wind.”


Ariat Sophia Fleece Jacket | Big Dee'sDanielle’s Favorite “I love the Ariat Sophia Fleece Jacket! it’s perfect for cool fall weather. The fleece is super soft and warm. There are lots of pockets to keep track of your belongings the chest pocket is especially useful. It comes in two color choices the black and teal as well as brown and pink. The black and teal is my first choice, check it out and see which one you like best.”

Goode Rider Military Jacket | Big Dee'sTerri’s Choice “Fall is here and with it comes cool weather. The Goode Rider Military Jacket is my favorite new coat. It features a warm lining throughout the body and lightly lined sleeves that really allow you to move. The removable hood, zippered sleeves and drawstring waistline all help make this jacket look like a custom fit when you wear it. There are lots of convenient pockets to keep your keys phone and other necessities in. Oh, and there is a flap that snaps at the back so you can wear this coat easily in the saddle.”

Ariat Idea Down Jacket | Big Dee'sLauren’s Choice “The Ariat Ideal Down Jacket has to be the perfect piece of outerwear! It’s warm, lightweight and best of all packable.  This cute jacket folds up small in its own baggie to be taken anywhere. I would pack it up for cold horse show mornings,  or cool evening rides at the barn, and if you’re like me pack it in your backpack for misty morning rides.”

Ariat Soft Shell Jacket | Big Dee'sPeyton gave us the guys perspective “The Ariat SoftShell Mens Jacket is a great choice for a cool windy day. It’s internal fleece lining keeps it insulated and comfortable for all day wear. The outside shell is very flexible and keeps me dry I use it mostly at school walking from one class to the next at KSU.”

Ariat Conquest Quarter Zip | Big Dee'sMariah’s favorite “I recently purchased the Ariat Conquest Quarter Zip, and I absolutely love it! It’s perfect for fall weather because it’s super warm but not too heavy. I have had so many compliments on it at the barn as well as other places. I am very pleased with my purchase and am looking for my next one in another color.”

Noble Outfitters Girl Tough Vest | Big Dee'sAshley K’s pick “I like the Noble Outfitters Canvas Girl Tough Vest. It is great for layering to keep you warm when it starts getting chilly all the way to when it’s cold. It is made of a tough material to stand up to daily barn chores. It has a fluffy collar and a very soft inner lining as well!”


Ariat Ideal Down Vest | Big Dee'sJen’s favorite “My choice for winter outerwear was Ariat Ideal Down Vest. This vest is packable and easy to take on the go. The vest is not too puffy or overwhelming. It fits perfectly and is the right weight. I chose this vest because it’s not too thick and actually flattered me.”


Kerrits Tailor Made Trench Coat | Big Dee'sAshley R’s pick “My choice was easy with the Kerrits Tailor Made Trench Coat. The mid length cut is flattering  and the angled pockets make it easier to access them. Normally mid length cut would be more difficult to move around at times, but this coat has a gusset at the back which help prevent that problem. With it being wind and water resistant, it’s perfect for Fall; whether at the barn or out on a date. Fleece interior makes it cozy for those cooler nights and the zipper allows you to open the bottom or top of the jacket to cool down.”

Deworming Horses 101

Deworming Horses 101 | Big Dee's Tack & Vet Supplies

Deworming guide

Have you ever been in a tack store staring at the wall of dewormers wondering “what should I give again“? Hopefully a savior (in the form of a store associate) arrives to tell you what to give. Then one arrives, but they are full of questions you just can’t remember the answers to! What did you de-worm your horse with last? , How often do you de-worm?, Have you had a fecal sample taken?  Since most of us have been there, here is an overview that we hope is helpful when planning your horses deworming schedule this year.

Let’s start with some basics –

What types of worms cause trouble?

Encrusted Small StrongylesMost susceptible are young and older horses. The larva can embed in the intestines. Large numbers of small strongyles can cause weight loss, colic, diarrhea and overall poor condition.

Ascarids (roundworms) – Dangerous to foals and horses under the age of two. Once ingested the larvae move through the veins into the liver, heart and lungs. Larvae in the lungs will eventually get swallowed to develop in the small intestine. Because the larvae migrate through the lungs a young horse could develop respiratory disease, have poor weight gain and colic.

Large Strongyles (bloodworms) – These worms can be dangerous to organs and can weaken abdominal artery walls. Common symptoms – diarrhea, weight loss and colic.

Pinworms – Not as dangerous as the other worms listed here – these worms typically cause itching around the horse’s rectum and tail.

Threadworms – Dangerous to foals and young horses. Foals can become infected by nursing from a mare with the larvae. They live in the intestinal tract. Common symptoms – diarrhea and weakness.

Bots In the warm seasons bot flies swarm around horses with the main purpose of finding a place on the horse to lay its eggs. After the eggs are laid – the horse can ingest them. Once inside the horse, they implant themselves in the mouth or intestines. While living in the intestines they can cause poor overall condition and mild colics.

Tapeworms – These are probably the least worrisome worm of them all. Tapeworms reside in the intestine and just live off of the food that comes to them. Mild colic and diarrhea are common symptoms of a horse carrying many tapeworms.

Now that we know about the worms… let’s find out how to treat them!

What types of dewormers are there?

Ivermectin Paste &  Praziquantel – For the removal & control of large and small strongyles, pinworms, hairworms, threadworms, stomach worms, lungworms, ascarids (roundworms) and bots.

Moxidectin Paste & Praziquantel – For the removal & control of large and small strongyles, ascarids (roundworms), pinworms, hairworms, stomach worms and bots.

Fenbendazole – For the treatment of large and small strongyles, ascarids (roundworms) and pinworms

Pyrantel Pamoate – For the removal and control of large/small strongyles, roundworms and pinworms

Daily Dewormers – Pryantel Tartate – Provides continuous protection against large and small strongyles, ascarids (roundworms) and pinworms.

Many veterinarians recommend fecal exams every three months. The exam will determine how much your horse sheds parasite eggs. Horses can range from heavy, to moderate to light shedders. Some horses have a high immunity to the parasites while others don’t. Horses that are in the pasture with other horses have a higher risk of becoming infected with roundworms and strongyles. A horse needs to ingest the eggs to become infected. Horses that are kept in well cleaned stalls are less likely to become infected. There are other factors as well – age, environment, climate, etc.

Your vet will most likely come up with a proper deworming program for you that will last a year. After a year, you will need to reevaluate and come up with an updated program.

International Helmet Awareness Day – Savings and Giveaways!

2016 International Helmet Awareness Day is September 17! International Helmet Awareness Day was started in 2010 by Riders4Helmets to educate equestrians on the benefits of wearing properly fitteing, secured and certified helmets.

Did you know that there is an estimated 300,000 sports related traumatic brain injuries a year in the United States? The International Brain Injury Association states that “Brain Injury can cause many kinds of physical, cognitive, and behavioral/emotional impairments that may be either temporary or permanent. Impairments may range from subtle to severe. Brain injury may result in seizure disorders.”

Helmets will absorb impact to the head, provide cushioning to the skull and reduce jarring of the brain against the skull. It is important to remember that the rider should wear a helmet designed specifically for riding horses and that it has been properly fitted. An ill fitting helmet will not provide the needed protection.

Big Dee’s supports International Helmet Awareness Day! We will be offering 20% off on helmets from Ovation, One K, IRH, UVEX, KASK, GPA, Tipperary, Charles Owen and Troxel – Saturday, September 17th – sale prices will be valid both online and at our store in Streetsboro, Ohio.

My Road to Rio – Stewarding

Lisa’s Rio Olympic Experience

Finally! After an unusually extended absence I am pleased to be back working with Big Dee’s! I spent a 3 week tour of duty as the Deputy Chief Steward for Dressage in the Equestrian events at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The news of the successes of the three US teams I am sure you already know, but the back story of the stewarding team that covered the Show Jumping, Eventing and Dressage events is a view few see or experience.

As an FEI (International Federation for Equestrian Sports) Steward you must be an “International Representative” (although it is impossible to not at least quietly pull for the success of your nation’s athletes). You work on a large team – at this event about 50 stewards from all over the world.

My Road to Rio - Lisa at Big Dee's

As  an FEI Steward (licensed in Dressage), my competition job was to assist with the first running sport (Eventing) to ensure that the dressage test equipment check was run properly and according to FEI rules. For the Dressage, to serve as the inspector of equipment after every ride in each of the three classes.

Road to Rio - Lisa from Big Dee's experience
For every portion of each of the three Events (Show jumping, Eventing and Dressage) teams of Stewards handled the logistics of horse inspections, schooling arena schedules and competition days. This made for MANY photo ops. Here, the Stewarding team for the first Eventing horse inspection marks the successful completion and a job well done with a group shot in the main competition stadium.

Road to Rio - Lisa from Big Dee's experience
Although technically held during Brazil’s winter, the daily highs ranged from a cool upper 60s to a challenging upper 90s. A cool breeze or still humid air added a bit of a challenge to our casual vs “Show Days Field of Play” blazers dress code! This 6:30 AM photo of the center warm-up pad signaled the beginning of a hot and humid work day.

Road to Rio - Lisa from Big Dee's Experience
Here I directed the groom to the Steward behind me for the Eventing Dressage equipment check. Each horse is given a quick examination to; confirm that the bit is legal, there are no injuries to the mouth or sides from the spurs, the horse was not wearing ear plugs for noise reduction and that the rider’s spurs did not wound the horse nor exceed 4 cm in length. The Steward in the foreground worked with the rider – offering water or electrolyte water.  Then escorted him (or her)  through a mandatory “mixed zone” where media from around the world had their photo opportunity with the riders and perhaps an answer to a quick question or two!

At every arena and phase of competition a Veterinarian and a Farrier were stationed near the stewards to ensure that at all times the welfare of the horses was considered and if necessary, immediately addressed.

New! Ariat Fuse Athletic Shoe

Fall is approaching quickly and this means that we get to see some new products come in to our hungry little hands. The Ariat Fuse athletic shoe has just arrived at Big Dee’s Tack and Vet Supply, and I simply could not wait to get my fingers on them. Were they everything the hype was leading them up to be? Let’s find out! Ariat Fuse Athletic ShoesAriat made the Fuse athletic shoe to be the go-to when you take your boots off. The Fuse athletic shoe is not a riding shoe as it does not have a heel, but they can be worn in the barn or in everyday casual life. This athletic shoe is great to change into before and after our rides so we aren’t stuck in our riding boots. Now lets get to the nitty gritty details about the Ariat Fuse!

Ariat Fuse Breathable Mesh The first thing I noticed about the Fuse was the breathable mesh material they are constructed of. Using a mesh material means that your feet won’t feel like they are suffocating inside a tiny cage all day. Also, your foot can expand and contract without feeling constricted and allows natural temperature control as well. My feet tend to swell by the end of the day and I don’t like shoes that make my feet feel they don’t have any wiggle room. That is not going to be an issue with these puppies!

Another thing I noticed about the Fuse is how light they are! I don’t even think they are more than a few ounces… it feels like I am tip-toeing on clouds! They are so light and airy that you feel as though you are not wearing shoes. This athletic shoe features Ariat’s 4LR Ariat Fuse Soletechnology that provides a four layer footbed, lightweight shank, while cushioning and stabilizing the foot for comfort and performance. The footbed in the Fuse is also contoured and removable. If you have a high arch I would recommend switching out the footbed, as I feel this fits more of a flat foot. The Fuse footbed lends itself to keeping your tired dogs kickin’. They feel really comfortable on, and act as though you have little massaging hands encouraging your feet to keep going. If you can’t tell, I am in love with these athletic shoes!

Other features of this athletic shoe are the heel and tongue pull tabs. The tongue pull tab also moonlights as a lace security factor. The Fuse sports a rubber outsole and an EVA midsole keeping them durable and easy to clean. The Fuse athletic shoe is available as a round toed shoe in sizes 5.5-10, 11.

Ariat Fuse SneakersLastly, I also like the color options available. There are four color choices ranging from Blue Leopard Mesh, Grey Snake Mesh, Pink Serape Mesh, and Purple Serape Mesh. The Fuse athletic shoe is a great cross-over shoe and Ariat has hit a home-run with them! I hope you can enjoy them as much as I plan to!
