Pumpkin spice and everything nice… 🎃
One of our favorite classic articles to re-post is this piece on nine horsey things that need to come in pumpkin spice*. However, upon reflection, we think there are a few more things that could only be improved by the popular fall flavor. So here are seven more horse-related things that need to come in pumpkin spice. Feel free to laugh along with us… or just roll you eyes. 🙄
*Pumpkin spice, to the best of our reckoning, tastes like sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Pumpkin, without spice, to the best of our reckoning, tastes like squash. Please note difference when seeking the flavors of fall. No one wants a pumpkin-flavored latte. If we’re talking scent rather than taste, pumpkin spice smells like pie. That’s really all you need to know.
1. Pumpkin Spice Banamine Paste
Nothing says fall like a good old fashioned gas colic. That’s why we think some seasonal-appropriate medication might be exactly what the doctor ordered. So how about some pumpkin spice flavored banamine paste? Your ailing horse will thank you… we think?
2. Pumpkin Spice Fly Spray
It may be fall, but the flies are still out… at least where we are. In fact, they seem to be making one last stand agains the horses (and my patience!). So some pumpkin spice-scented fly spray seems like just the thing to make your barn smell festive and (hopefully) keep the flies at bay.
3. Pumpkin Spice Shampoo and Conditioner
After all, would it really be fall if everything didn’t smell like pumpkin spice… including your horse?
4. Pumpkin Spice Poultice
This definitely will help your horse’s legs feel better and tighten those tendons. That’s the magic of pumpkin, right?
5. Pumpkin Spice Equine Nasal Strips
Support those nasal passages and offer your horse some seasonally scented motivation!
6. Pumpkin Spice Hay Net
Show season isn’t over yet, so you’ll still need those hay nets to keep your horse happily munching when they travel. Pumpkin spice hay nets might be just the thing to encourage your equine pal to nibble a bit more.
7. Pumpkin Spice Ibuprofen
Okay, let’s get real. Most equestrians can’t function without their daily dose of vitamin I. So what could be more festive than some pumpkin spice flavored ibuprofen?
Happy Fall, Horse Nation. Go riding!
