Big Dee’s is Helping You Beat the Bugs!

The unfortunate consequence of owning a horse…FLIES (Ticks, gnats, or any other creepy crawly that comes with summer)! Here at Big Dee’s we’ve been thinking of ways to help you enjoy the summer season without the bugs, which is why we developed the Big Dee’s “Beat the Bugs Contest.”

The Prize Package:

This prize package, which is valued at over $85.00 includes some of our favorite products, more specifically, the package contains two cans of Centuara Fly Spray for Horse & Rider by Farnam, one Trap ‘N Toss Fly Trap also by Farnam, one Fly Mask by Horse Sense, and a a set of Insect Repellent Tack Bands by Fly Armor. Why did we choose these products? Let me tell you a little more about these great items.

Centaura Fly Spray for Hose & Rider by Farnam

This unique new product by Farnam is great for both Horse & Rider! For your horse, it provides 12 hour effective protection from flies and mosquitoes. For you and your family, it provides 12 hour long lasting protection from mosquitoes and ticks. It also repels biting flies, stable flies, black flies, gnats, chiggers and sand flies for up to eight hours. As an extra bonus, it smells great and isn’t sticky! If this isn’t enough to convince you, check out the Centaura Fly Spray reviews or the video testimonial, which was done by Big Dee’s Operations’s Manager, Jessica Roslan!

Trap ‘N Toss by Farnam

This handy, disposable Trap ‘N Toss fly trap by Farnam can be hung up or set down wherever flies are most active. It attracts and kills over 10,000 flies without insecticides. The special attractant contains multiple feeding stimulants plus a fly sex attractant, which is sure to grab any fly’s attention. It’s also safe for use around children, pets or livestock! Best of all, it’s easy to use – just squeeze in attractant and add water. No messy jars to clean. The Trap ‘N Toss by Farnam is both an effective and an inexpensive way to control flies around the stable area.

Tack Bands Insect Repellent by Fly Armor

If you haven’t been living under a rock for the past several months, then you’ve heard of Fly Armor! The insect repellent tack bands provide an invisible shield of tranquility against flies, mosquitoes, gnats, fleas, ticks and no-see-ums for approximately four weeks, depending upon weather conditions. The hotter it is, the better these bands work. The unique component of a Fly Armor™ band is the scented, eco-friendly replacement insert. Fly Armor inserts protect your animal from bothersome flying insects. I would encourage all of you to view the video describing the Fly Armor Tack Bands.

Hot Picks from the 2012 Last Chance for Summer Savings Flyer

The new Last Chance for Summer Savings Flyer will be arriving in mailboxes soon. If you’ve shopped at Big Dee’s for years, then you know our sales flyers are your exclusive ticket to amazing savings. Since I know all of you must be “Chomping at the Bit,” I wanted to give you a sneak peek at some of my favorite deals.

Acti-Flex 4000

If you haven’t heard about the equine joint supplement Acti- Flex yet, then you are missing out on one of the greatest trade secrets in the business. This powerful liquid joint supplement combines Chondriotin Sulfate, MSM, Glucosamine Sulfate, Ascorbic Acid, Boswella Serate and Hyaluronic Acid (125 mg per oz). If you still need convincing, check out the label, or better yet the reviews. Acti-Flex 4000 has 64 reviews and averages a FIVE STAR rating. Most importantly, you can’t beat the deal. When you take advantage of the promotion, Acti-Flex is only $0.53 a day! I challenge you to beat that deal. If you find a joint supplement that combines the same ingredients at the same dosages at a cheaper price, I would love to hear about it. Not to sound too Hair Club for Men, but I also use Acti-Flex for my hunter mare. It really works!

Mary’s Purchasing Picks 06/05/12

Mary’s Purchasing Picks

Hello Summer!

These are a few of my favorite things! (must-have items for the season)
Welcome to our Big Dee’s Blog! My name is Mary and I am the Purchasing Assistant here at Big Dee’s. I have been working here for five years come this fall—I must say we are very lucky folks that get to carry over our love of horses into every day work at the office! I got my first pony at the age of three (Shetland named LadyBug) and haven’t stopped since. Currently  I own three quarter horses. I love to compete in gaming classes, trail ride, and chase the occasional cow!

Micro-tek Medicated Spray

‘Tis the season! April showers bring May flowers–however, they also bring lots of mud! This is a great product to have on hand year-round, but especially great this time of year. It is excellent to spray on mud fever, rain rot, itchy spots, dry skin, and any other crud or irritation your horse can conjure up! I have used it on horses with mud fever, dry skin, and rub spot–and have seen noticeable results in a matter of a couple days. It is environmentally friendly, alcohol free, and non-toxic to boot. Give it a try—you’ll see why this is a top seller for us.

Quiet Ride Fly Mask

I’m sure we’re all looking forward to the warmer weather! Unfortunately warm weather=fly season. Luckily our wonderful friends at Cashel have created the Quiet Ride Fly Mask for summer trail riding and hacking. Does your horse get agitated and toss his head while riding down the trail from those pesky flies? This mask will help! It is crafted from a sheer mesh that is lightweight, comfortable, and will not obstruct their vision. It attaches easily to your bridle and stays secure. We offer several versions to meet your specific needs—including long nose, ears, long nose/ears combination, or traditional mask with no ears. It’s easy to see why they are flying off our shelves!

Rubber Boots from Smoky Mountain

Now that we’ve got your horse covered…how about something for the human?? These boots are ready to take on rain, mud, and outdoor chores. If you must work hard outdoors, why not look great while doing so? These boots from Smoky Mountain have a stylish leopard print pattern. They also feature a durable tread and cotton sock lining to keep you comfortable. Smoky Mountain also offers several other similar rubber boots in fun prints.
