Getting Ready to Spray on Water Repellent! THIS IS A MUST HAVE! So much easier than carrying one around with you! It is large enough to make up a batch, and easy to use! Make sure you have a strong enough setting to prevent wind from carrying away, and to make sure you are getting enough product into the fibers. Plus, You can’t beat the price for the quality! We have used our for 2+ years, and still going strong!
Hair comes with blankets, saddle pads, fleeces and coolers….and while our washes are EXCELLENT at helping to remove the majority of hair, you may still be left with a little. We have tried a LOT of brands, but we still believe that Evercare Brands Stand ABOVE! We love these T handle ones, and they perform great on pet hair. Thank us later.
It may surprise you, but EquiGroomers are just as fantastic on Fabrics as they are on your pet or horse! The EquiGroomer is one of the tools that you need a few of! They are perfect for saddle pads and getting out stubborn stuck hairs, de-pilling fleece, removing those last remaining hairs! Lets not forget your furniture! We Love because they can be used for so many purposes, and work great without damaging the fabric! This is one of our secret tools, both for business and in the barn!
Looking for the Perfect Thread! Here is the perfect thread for your horse blanket repairs! This picture will take you to all the different colors! Looking for which you should stock up on first? Our choices would be: BLACK, NAVY, GREEN, MAROON, TAN. Why We love? 69 Bonded Thread is UV Resistant, heavy duty, looks great, and works perfect for all the materials commonly used.
Looking for your next pair of favorite fabric shears? Look no further! These are so comfortable, and large! You cannot beat the 10 inch size! They really are nice enough to cut through leather. These scissors will often grow feet and head to different sewing machines. They have quickly become the favorite pair.

The colors make it easy to organize by color, or label the outside. It is not huge, and perfect for offices with limited space! Want to see the slightly cheaper priced
Looking to make bagging up horse blankets easy? This is our recommendation! Why don’t we adore zippered bags? simple! We do not want our customers returning dirty bags with their dirty blankets, I certainly don’t want to have to worry about washing them and making sure they go home with the same owners (I would personally be grossed out if I found out I had someone else’s dirty bag…I’ve been how people care for them!), and often times people thing they do not have to then store them appropriately, and then when mice get in…they are shocked! I love a quick and easy heat seal for sending back horse wear! Why I love: Looks professional, quick, and easy!
Blanket Laundries always ask what kind of bags I use. There are 2. A quick, easy, and cost effective way are these clear heavy-duty trash can liners. They are easy to buy from Amazon with 2 day shipping, and 100 in a box. Why I love: They are cost effective, clear, heavy duty enough for sending blankets back to their owners in.
These sale order forms are great! They make listing the owners blanket’s easy. They are easy to use, and with 2 copies, there is one for you to have on file for your records. Why we love: As stated above, they are easy to use, and a clear way to document the blankets received, and for you to keep your own records.
A good pen is essential for writing all those invoices! But these are not just pens they are “MOTIVATIONAL!” Want to see what I am talking about…check them out! Why we Love: Does anything really compete with using a tool that makes you feel empowered?! If you have to write all those invoices anyways, you might as well do it like a BOSS!
Sharpies! NEED I SAY MORE? You will need…YOU WILL NEED LOTS! Depending on how you will be writing out tags for your blankets, or writing on bags, Sharpies will do the trick! Why we Love: Who doesn’t love a Sharpie! Keep them in stock, they are bound to run off!
Seems like an odd thing to consider an essential, while a little bit of an investment, it is amazing! Design your own labels for your bags, make shipping labels to send your blanket back to it’s owner, need labels? This machine is a life saver, keeps you looking professional, and comes with a computer program for all your designing and labeling needs. Since it is thermal, there is no ink costs! Why we Love: We use at least daily, all mail ships out, and all blankets going back to their owners. We have designed our labels to clearly list the contents of each bag, and which horse blanket service they received. They are large, easy to read, and nothing like getting huge compliments on labels!!
When you get that machine, get extra labels. You will need them, and find use for each service you provide! While 250 labels seems like a lot, you will go thru them quickly! I suggest using the Dymo lables for the Labelwriter as they perform the best, and highly recommended since you don’t want poor quality labels gunking up your expensive machine you just purchased!
Thank you Stickers! Add them to bags, add them to receipts, the use is endless….and your customers will appreciate it! We love our customers, I am sure you do too…so go the extra step! Why we Love: They are something so easy, yet something customers notice. It will bring a smile to their face’s and a sure way that they will remember you over the summer and fall!
