Once mud issues take hold, not only can they be slow to clear but they can quickly escalate into an immune system weakness. But keeping legs dry in winter is almost impossible. So, enter Mother Nature’s clever Ruggle-it, which adapts to the wet and requires no scab-picking!
Top Tip: Ideally, do not clip the hair (or feathers) as Mother Nature put them there for protection and for warmth – you may need to work harder by retaining them but in the long run it will be better for your horse.
Step 1: Bathe the area in the pioneering soap-free Ruggle-it shampoo which not only does not strip the skin, but also contains no harsh chemicals such as Parabens, Sodium Lauryl Sulphate or Tea Tree as these can sting and irritate. It gently cleans, soothes, and encourages scabs to lift. NEVER pick scabs…this delays healing and leaves the ‘immature’ skin vulnerable to attack.
Step 2: Apply the Ruggle-it 100% natural vegetable oil blend (with its antibacterial and antifungal properties) to any affected areas – it also acts as an excellent moisture barrier. Despite not needing to dry the legs first, the unusual Ruggle-it routine consistently delivers great results.
Another tip: As mud issues often stem from mite damage, Ruggle-it can simultaneously deal with them too for no extra cost! Simply by using the products differently, e.g. for mites, flies, fleas, midges, head lice, fungal issues etc, Ruggle multi-tasks – one product for 18 issues affecting animals (large and small) and humans.
