Farnam - Horse Grooming

Indulge your horse in a spa-like experience with two great new products from Vetrolin - Farnam’s most popular line of equine grooming products: Vetrolin Body Wash and Vetrolin Liniment Gel. Vetrolin Body Wash is a gentle, moisturizing body wash in a time-saving applicator that cleans without scrubbing, letting you leave the buckets and sponges in the barn. Specially formulated surfactants produce a rich lather that gently lifts away dirt, skin debris and dandruff while protein-enriched conditioners repair split ends to give your horse a lustrous shine. This special formula includes PABA sunscreen to protect skin and hair.

The 32-ounce bottle has an easy-to-use spray applicator that fits on the end of a garden hose. With the turn of a dial, you can go from wash to rinse to bathe your horse, pony, or dog in minutes, leaving only a healthy shine and the fresh, familiar Vetrolin fragrance behind.

Vetrolin Liniment Gel is a deep-penetrating liniment that provides horses and ponies with instant relief from sore muscles and joints in an easy-to-use gel form. Unlike other liniment formulas that dry out your horse’s skin and coat, Vetrolin Liniment Gel is the only formula that contains hyaluronic acid to nourish the skin and coat. Hyaluronic acid is referred to as “nature’s moisturizer” because it is one of the most water-loving molecules in nature. Its ability to leave your horse with a healthy, lustrous and moisturized coat is due to hyaluronic acid’s gelatinous consistency and ability to bind water to the hair shaft. Available in a 12-ounce bottle with a flip-top cap for ease of application.

“Good grooming is a vital part of horse ownership,” said Alyssa Barngrover, product manager for Farnam’s grooming products. “In addition to the health benefits grooming provides, the Vetrolin products pamper your horse in a spa-like experience. We want to make the daily grooming routine an enjoyable bonding opportunity for both you and your horse.”

Soothe your horse with Vetrolin Liniment, an invigorating aromatic liniment with a hint of green soap and five essential oils. Best used when mixed with water and used as a body brace to stimulate blood flow and help relieve minor stiffness, soreness and inflammation. Vetrolin Liniment is available in either 32-ounces or one-gallon.

Make your horse’s coat glisten with Vetrolin Shine. Vitamin-rich conditioners and PABA sunscreen give your horse a brilliant luster, repels dirt and dust, and detangles manes and tails. Vetrolin Shine helps eliminate stains, cutting grooming time in half. This trusted favorite is available in a 32-ounce bottle with sprayer and 64-ounce refill.

Remove dirt and dandruff with the rich, thick lather of Vetrolin Bath and leave your horse’s coat soft and lustrous. Vetrolin Bath is a concentrated premium shampoo containing four surfactants for better cleaning and lathering action, and three conditioners and humectants to naturally hold moisture after drying to impart suppleness and elasticity with sheen and luster. Vetrolin Bath is available in 32- and 64-ounces.

Instantly remove tangles from the mane and tail with the specially formulated silicones in Vetrolin Detangler. It improves the look and feel as it smoothes and shines the hair, adding volume without damaging or drying hair shafts. Vetrolin Detangler is available in an easy-to-use 12-ounce bottle.

Vetrolin Conditioner contains Solar Guard® Color-Keeper, an exclusive ingredient that protects the mane, tail and coat from harmful UV rays and fading for up to eight days. It restores strength, elasticity and increases manageability, leaving the mane and tail easy to comb. Vetrolin Conditioner is available in a 16-ounce bottle.

Remove urine and manure spots with just a spray of Vetrolin Green Spot Out. The waterless, spray-on stain remover also helps remove wet and dry sweat stains. Brush it out to create a high-gloss shine, no rinsing required. This product contains tea tree oil and is available in a 16-ounce spray bottle.

“With the addition of Vetrolin Body Wash and Liniment Gel, we provide horse owners with a comprehensive grooming and conditioning line,” Barngrover said. “We are excited about the expansion of the Vetrolin line and continue to strive to meet all your horse’s everyday grooming needs, as well as pre-show essentials and post workout clean up.”

The Vetrolin family of products has been helping horses look like champions for more than 20 years. The new Body Wash and Liniment Gel join Vetrolin Liniment, Shine, Bath, Detangler, Conditioner and Green Spot Out as the official grooming and conditioning products of the American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA) and official horse care products of Horse Shows in The Sun (HITS). Vetrolin Liniment is also the official liniment of the National Reined Cow Horse Association (NRCHA).
