Shires Equine Scratcher
About this deal
This teaches your horse that when the scratching session is offered, they need to indicate that they want it to continue. Scratching or rubbing is a healthy behavior that can get rid of pests and parasites, clear dead skin or loose hair, and promote better blood flow to the itchy area. This is why you might have heard that you shouldn’t scratch your horse when they ask or that scratching on a person is disrespectful.

Some horses enjoy scratches so much that they’ll try to rub themselves all over you, using your clothes as texture for relieving itches.The type of turf shown here can scratch itches on any part of the body including thin skinned areas, and won’t damage names and tails. Different texture and locations give your horse options, and ensure that the whole herd can take care of itches. For a change of pace from the coconut fiber mat, use a textured rubber mat for a DIY horse scratching post.

The decision to vet scratch a racehorse entered in the Kentucky Derby would go through a rigorous process. There are several actions that could trigger this block including submitting a certain word or phrase, a SQL command or malformed data.Most of the racehorses running in the Derby are shipped in, and the veterinarians want to ensure they are in proper condition to race. Our horse didn’t have to go through this procedure because he wasn’t scratched by the vet; rather, it was a steward’s decision.
