In the summer Mr.Grumpy has issues with that his mane and tail starts itching, like a bit of summer eczema. I came to the stable one day and half of his upper tail was gone, I could definitely scream as it was so full and pretty before.
However, nothing to do about that, but I had to figure out something to ease the itch to make him stop ruining his tail and make him feel better.
I first tried this product from my local drug store which was recommended to me by some people at the stable. However this thing didn’t make him stop grinding his ass against the wall and it smelled so bad that my hands would smell forever after. So I went online and started researching as I always do and came across the Sectolin Sweet itch.
What is it: “Based on vegetable oils and extracts.
Sweetitch provides soothing care to aid natural recovery of the skin for horses, containing minerals from the Dead Sea and vegetable oils. This horse gel is a soothing product for manes, tails and underbelly. The Dead Sea salt supports the cleansing and calming of the skin.”
How to use: Rub it in on mane, tail or any itching area of your horse everyday.
Does it work? YES! First of all I was happy that the smell was really nice, it smells quite minty. However the most important part is that it really does work. After a couple of days of using it Mr.Grumpy stopped itching. Now I use it whenever I see him start doing it again. The pump bottle is also really convenient.
Costs: 16.95 euro at your local Sectolin dealer.
My rating : 5/5 (Definitely recommend this product)
