Welcome

n this issue of Trade Talk the spotlight turns to maintenance, both of the stable yard and of the paddock. Although products in this sector may appear to be more seasonal, there are plenty of items to stock that will enable sales all year round. A large part of yard maintenance involves the day-to-day management of the stable, for which a good set of yard tools is vital to make the sometimes time-consuming job a faster and easier one. With new colours and styles constantly hitting the shelves, encourage your customers to ditch their rusty old forks, shovels and wheelbarrows and invest in some more modern equipment. Alongside the daily tasks come more occasional but nevertheless just as important improvements and maintenance jobs. Products such as stable disinfectants, paint or wood preparation treatments may be more seasonal, whilst items such as replacement bolts or padlocks should be stocked year-round in case the customer needs to make an urgent repair. Stable furnishings such as hay feeders, buckets, window grids, anti-weaving grills and stable mirrors meanwhile allow the customer to make improvements to their horse’s surrounds as well as replace any worn or broken items as necessary. Paddock maintenance is year-round, but again involves different jobs (and different products) at different times of the year. Managing grassland is somewhat of a specialist area, so retailers shouldn’t be afraid to approach manufacturers and experts for advice. Smaller retailers whose shelf space may be limited could consider compiling their own directory of local paddock service or equipment suppliers and linking up with these businesses to mutual benefit. This issue of Trade Talk profiles some of the best suppliers of yard and paddock maintenance equipment, and also contains some handy advice to keep next to the till just in case!

Grassland management Trade Talk highlights some of the management practices that should be carried out to maintain paddocks in good condition throughout the year. The art of good grassland management is really a balance between maintaining good grass coverage during the winter months and avoiding the prevalence of too much lush grass during spring and summer, taking into account the nutritional needs of the horse. Ideally, horse owners should aim to keep grass at a length of five centimetres (two to three inches) during spring and summer and two centimetres (one inch) in the winter. As a general rule, grass grows five times faster in May than it does in September, and will continue to grow so long as the soil temperature is above 6°C. What makes grassland management for horses particularly difficult is the fact that they are very selective grazers, and if allowed will graze paddocks unevenly to the point that the paddock becomes ‘horse sick’ –­ that is, full of poor quality grass with rank or bare patches, proliferating with harmful weeds and a high population of parasites. This is what makes maintaining good and nutritious grass cover, together with weed and manure removal, so important.

Pasture improvement Rolling, harrowing and mowing are three operations that can be carried out to improve and maintain the quality of pasture, and can be undertaken using equipment towed behind a quad bike or by utilising the services of a farmer. Timing is important, as these operations should not be carried out in wet conditions. Rolling will help repair any damage done to the 4

fields over the winter; harrowing pulls away the dead grass (thatch) to allow air, water and nutrients into the soil, and is best done in early spring; and topping (mowing) levels off the grass and encourages new growth. Retailers can provide contact information on tack shop notice boards for any local farmers or contractors that offer this service. Fertiliser and/or lime application is also important for encouraging a healthy and nutritious sward, and make up for the depletion of nutrients in any

www.tradetalkonline.co.uk


focus on... Land & Stable over-grazed areas. The main nutrients required for grass growth are nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium, and customers should be advised to use specialist equine paddock fertiliser to avoid problems such as excessive nitrogen (which can lead to overly lush grass, and potentially therefore laminitis). Lime may be used to neutralise soil that is too acidic – this can be fairly Fertiliser or lime common as rain water is application can help naturally slightly acidic. to encourage a healthy Soil testing using a simple and nutritious sward kit is recommended to ensure that any fertiliser or lime applications are properly targeted. The optimum soil pH for grass growth for horses is 6.0 to 6.5 – slightly above that for agricultural grassland to reduce the risks of low calcium levels in the grass. Phosphorous levels should be above 3 ppm, and potash levels above 75 ppm to avoid deficiency. Reseeding can be carried out if the pasture has been damaged by poaching or drought or if it is dominated by perennial weeds or rough grasses such as couch, soft brome, barley grass or tussock grass. Specialist equine paddock seed mixes should contain at least 50% late perennial ryegrass, 25% turf-forming grasses and 25% meadow grass, such as creeping red fescue or timothy. Certain herbs may also be included in grass seed mixtures, such as chicory, parsley, ribgrass, yarrow or sainfoin, to improve palatability and increase the variety of minerals available to the horse. Grass seeds are generally sown at 30 to 37kg per hectare (12kg to 15kg per acre), depending on soil condition.

Suitable grass species Three popular species of grass found in equine paddocks are perennial ryegrass, creeping red fescue and timothy. Perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne) is a common base for agricultural and equine grass seed mixes and is also useful for hay production providing the variety is one with lower moisture content. This species of grass grows best in good, rich soils and is most productive when fertilised, remembering that the levels of nitrogen that should be applied to equine paddocks is less than that for agricultural lays. Perennial ryegrass does not grow well in very dry conditions and can suffer cold weather damage. Research has suggested that ryegrass under stress produces higher levels of fructans than other species, which may increase the likelihood of laminitis. Creeping red fescue (Festuca rubra) is popular for use in sports turf, which means that the price of this seed is higher. In contrast to ryegrass, it copes well with winter conditions and lower fertility soil. Fescue is also highly palatable, although its digestibility and mineral content may be low. It is hard wearing, but its establishment is poor. Timothy (Phleum pratense) is also hardy and tolerates low fertility, and produces the most palatable hay for horses. This species has low mineral content, digestibility and crude protein, with slow regrowth and low persistence if with grown with ryegrasses and grazed intensively. Timothy is useful in cool, wet conditions on peaty or heavy soils, with useful early growth on uplands

Drainage

Keeping the grass sward thick, level and healthy – which includes preventing overgrazing and poaching, and the regular removal of manure – will help to avoid the occurrence of weeds. Topping the grass throughout the growing season meanwhile will prevent any weeds that are present from flowering or going to seed. Any weeds present should be removed at the beginning of spring before the plants have had a chance to establish. Poisonous plants such as ragwort must be fully removed and properly disposed of to avoid become a health threat to grazing horses – several companies now produce specialist ragwort removal forks (to be used in conjunction with a pair of gloves) which make the task easier. Ragwort is one of five weeds covered by the provisions of The Weeds Act 1959, which require that land owners take action to prevent the spread of this injurious weed. The other plants included in this Act are spear thistle, creeping or field thistle, curled dock and broad-leaved dock. It is important to remove other plants that, although not toxic, the horse will not eat, such as docks, nettles and thistles. Horse owners can stop them spreading though regular cutting and mowing, but might have to dig them up to completely remove them. Alternatively, they may be spot treated to kill using a herbicide such as glyphosate (remembering that this is a nonselective herbicide, which will also kill grass), but it must be taken into account that the paddock cannot be grazed for a given period afterwards.

Adequate and effective drainage is one of the key factors to producing good grassland for horses. Hooves have a naturally damaging effect on the grass sward, particularly in wet weather, and this is compounded if the land is not well drained. Badly managed land will not allow the soil to aerate and will soon become muddy and poached – not the ideal environment for horses and ruining the grass. Any existing ditches should cleared of vegetation and silt, and the area around gateways, feeding managers or water troughs (any areas where horses are likely to congregate for a greater length of time) should be hard cored if necessary. Alternatively, rubber matting can be used – specialist free draining paddock mats are ideal for use in muddy gateways and are often perforated to allow grass growth through.

Management calendar Use this handy grassland management calendar to plan what to stock and when, and reference when advising customers on how to keep their paddocks in top condition. Time of year

Action

Late winter

Soil test to establish pH and nutrient levels. This allows forward planning.

Early spring

Harrow and roll pasture. Reseed any bare patches. Watch out for overly lush grass growth – laminitis risk.

Spring/early summer

Apply fertilisers if necessary (using results of soil test as guide). Maintain grass length at 5cm, by topping if necessary. Remove weeds such as docks and ragwort before they become too established.

Summer

Maintain grass length at 5cm. This will also stop weeds from flowering or setting seed.

Autumn

Reseed any bare patches. Continue topping if necessary. Watch out for ‘autumn flush’ of grass growth – laminitis risk Prepare for winter by mending fences, trimming hedges and trees and adding hardcore to gateways and feeding areas.

Winter

Rotate paddocks to avoid poaching, using electric fencing to separate areas of the field if necessary.

Safe and secure With rural crime on the rise, paddock and yard security should be at the top of the agenda. Retailers can help horse owners keep their horses and equipment safe by stocking a selection of security products and providing advice on how to use them effectively. Criminals are often very stealthy, and may monitor potential targets in the days and weeks before an attempted raid in order to ascertain the level of security in place. Things that the would-be thief will note include the comings and goings of people and vehicles; the existence of alarm systems, security light and sensors (and how far they can get before the alarms are triggered); and the vulnerability of the tack room and storage areas. Naturally, the more secure the yard and paddock, the more that the thief will be put off from attempting to break in. Security equipment such as lights, alarms and cameras (imitation devices are better than nothing at all, although obviously do not provide as high a level of security) are therefore important pieces of kit in the guard against crime. 8

Heavy duty paddocks should also be used to protect storage areas, doors and gateways. UK Horsewatch Alliance advises owners to secure their gates with a close-shackled padlock and a pad bar rather than a chain, which can be easily cut through, and also reminds horse owners that, although doors should be fastened with paddocks, it is important to make sure the hinges cannot be unscrewed, as a burglar will not think twice about removing the door or gate. Putting bars on the inside of any tackroom windows is also recommended, and all equipment should be security marked with postcode. It is also important for horse owners to consider their property or paddock boundaries, install as high quality fencing and gates as possible and check them regularly. Thieves may attempt to lift gates off hinges, and have also been known to cut fencing or hedgerows to allow them access or exit at a later date, temporarily re-joining them in the meantime. Horse trailers are also popular targets for thieves, but must be secured in a way that stops anyone from stealing them but enables emergency access. Farmkey operates a trailer marking scheme and associated register, whilst wheel clamps and hitchlocks can also be used. Advise owners to apply their postcode to the trailer roof.

Stable maintenance Stable maintenance is an important part of horse ownership, but can be easy to overlook. Encourage customers to check the condition of their stables, barns and outbuildings at least once a year, and sell them products to help them make those vital improvements and repairs. Spring or summer is the best time to undertake a conditions check on stable buildings, as it allows vital time for maintenance works to be carried out before the nights draw in. Important things to note and target include the state of the roof, gutters and drainage and any structural damage, including from insects or fungi. For the latter purpose as well as to maintain a hygienic

environment, retailers should stock a selection of stable hygiene treatments and disinfectants. Any faulty locks or bolts, broken gates, fencing, light fittings, window grills or kick boards, or even fire extinguishers, should be replaced as and when necessary – if you yourself do not stock certain items, it is good to have a book of alternative contacts who can, to point customers in the right direction. Paint and wood preparation treatments on the other hand require relatively little shelf space. Such treatments not only improve the look of the stable but also help protect and preserve it. Advise that customers should first prepare any surface for painting using a hand scraper to remove old paint and/or sanding.

Fencing facts and maintenance There are a number of things for customers to consider before purchasing paddock fencing, and factors such as cost, practicality, safety and aesthetics all come into play. Trade Talk profiles some of the most common types of fencing. What makes a good fence? A good fence should be highly visible to the horse, high enough to deter it from jumping and solid enough in case the horse tries to test its strength, but with some give so as to minimise injury if the horse does strike it. There must be little to no risk of the horse getting caught or trapped, and no sharp edges to cause injury. The fence should also be easy to install and maintain, be durable and long lasting, and should look attractive. As a guide, the British Horse Society (BHS) recommend that fences are approximately 1.25 metres (4 feet) in height, with fences between 14

TRADE talk

equestrian directory

1.08–1.38 metres (3’6”–4’6”) high for horses (even higher for stallions) and 1.0–1.3 metres (3’3”–4’3”) for ponies. Lower rails should be placed around 0.5 metres (1’6”) above ground level. The BHS also lists the following types of fencing as suitable for equines: post and rail wooden fencing, post and rail impact resistant plastic, post and rail – solid uprights, flexi-rails (PVC or rubber-coated webbing), post electric – either wooden posts or plastic stays with either electric tape or wire. Wire fencing (plain or barbed) and single strand electric wire meanwhile are considered less suitable and potentially unsafe.

Wooden post and rail Traditional wooden post and rail fencing is in an ideal world the type of fencing that many horse owners would choose. It is considered to be very safe and aesthetically pleasing, but is usually more expensive than other types of fencing and requires regular maintenance to prevent rotting. Good

focus on... Land & Stable quality hardwood and pre-treated posts and rails are the best option, as maintenance requirements should be lessened slightly. If customers already have post and rail fencing, advise them that a strand of electric tape can be used to protect the top rail from getting chewed or broken and should help prolong its life, as well as making the fence even more secure.

Impact resistant plastic

Plastic fencing is a great alternative to wooden post and rails, but the A strand of plastic (usually PVC) electric tape can used must have be used to protect post and rail fencing been treated by the manufacturer so as from being chewed to make it impact or broken resistant, with rails that bend and give under pressure rather than shatter. Impact resistant plastic fencing requires much less maintenance as it does not need painting or treating, is less subject to weather and insect damage, is easy to keep clean and won’t rot. This can make it a safer option than wood, as there is less chance for splinters causing injury, although it must still be checked from time to time to ensure it is not becoming brittle or damaged.

other animals that may share the field, for example sheep or goats.

Electric fencing Electric fencing is a popular and less expensive alternative – or indeed complement –­to post and rail fencing, and is also ideal for use in rest and rotational grazing systems or for when access to grass needs to be limited, for example for laminitis sufferers. It is generally easy to install, more portable and can be used as either a temporary or permanent boundary.

Wire netting Although neither plain nor barbed wire fencing is suitable for horses, several companies produce wire netting that has been designed for use for equine paddocks, with holes than should be small enough so as not to entrap a hoof. To add extra strength to the fence, a wooden rail or strand of electric tape can be added along the top. The benefits of this type of fencing are that is low maintenance and easy to install, although it should be erected professionally. It will also help to keep in

All retailers should consider stocking even just electric fencing starter kits or a basic range of energisers (battery and mains powered), poly posts, fencing materials – such as tape, rope and polywire ­– and insulators. As an add-on sale, suggest that your customer purchases a fence tester to enable them to test the voltage and ensure everything is working effectively. If stocking electric fencing, try to ensure that all staff members have received some basic electric fence training in case the customer requires advice.

Every fork tells a story – from raw materials to despatch Fyna-Lite is celebrating 26 years of being at the forefront of innovative designed British-made stable tools and field maintenance equipment. General manager Leon Fynn explains more about the company’s ethos and manufacturing processes. The number of products has grown considerably since the company was started by my father George in 1985, but the values and skills we started with are as important today as they were then. Fyna-Lite started manufacturing forks in 1985 as a reaction to the mucking out products that were available at that time. George Fynn realised that there was a lack of quality tools available, so he

16

TRADE talk

equestrian directory

designed his own shavings fork. From then on, the company has grown significantly with a range of over 50 different products. There has always been a strong interest in horses from the all members of the Fynn family, and this has certainly helped with the development of the business. We designed forks so that they could work in our own stables; if they didn’t work well in our yard, then that particular design or idea was discarded. Our aim was to create a fork that was light in weight, yet strong and with good balance to make the job of cleaning out stables as easy as possible. However, it was the underlying engineering knowledge that has been at the heart of Fyna-Lite. George Fynn has been involved in engineering since the late 1940’s. Originally a welder, he moved to the UK from his native Australia as a speedway rider. After his retirement from professional racing,

www.tradetalkonline.co.uk


focus on... Land & Stable he began designing and building speedway bikes. There are elements of those speedway bike designs and manufacturing techniques that have been carried over to the fork and that knowledge has been passed to me.

Skilled craftmenship Fyna-Lite has always believed that the skill of the craftsman, the use of the best quality materials and innovative designs are essential to creating the best possible tools. Even though technology advancements have meant that the forks are made more efficiently and to an ever higher standard, the basic principle and production methods have remained constant. Our investment in tooling and machinery has been pivotal in our quest to improve the quality of our products. As our reliance on sub-contract services has been cut, so the speed at which we can manufacture each batch has increased along with ability to be more flexible with a production run if the need arises. By using our own in-house expertise, we have been able to constantly improve designs to ensure the product the customer receives is of the highest standard. We have always believed that if you cannot be the market leader in terms of product design and service to the customer, then it isn’t worth being involved in that market. It is this belief in our own products that is evident in the staff at Fyna-Lite. Key members of staff have been with the company for 10 years, and it is their knowledge and keen attention to detail during the manufacturing

process that has helped make Fyna-Lite a market leader. Fyna-Lite products are now exported to destinations all over the world. Although the UK accounts for the majority of sales, there has been a year on year increase in sales to the Eurozone, Scandinavia, the Middle East, the USA and Japan. There is a trend among equestrian equipment purchasers towards better quality equipment, and being British made is becoming more and more important and valued. Fyna-Lite now offer a fork for every bedding system that is available with a handle variant suitable for every operator. We are currently working at adding to the range, and of course we are constantly improving our processes to ensure that the end user has the best possible tool for the job.
