Love is in the air, everywhere I look around….
It’s February folks and expectations are high for you to show your loved ones that you really do love them! While spreading the love, do you shower special affection on your cat, your dog or your horse?
Did you know, three in four people celebrate their animal’s birthdays, so why not Valentine’s Day? In fact, according to a new study by the National Retail Federation, a total of $18.9 billion is spent on the holiday, with consumers dropping $703 million on their furry friends. Obviously for most, chocolate isn’t the answer, but there are plenty of ways you can show them how much they mean to you.
From diamond-studded collars to cat wall mazes, tempur pedic beds and homemade treats, every pooch, feline, and equine desire is catered for. Now, if you’re not in the market for diamonds, we have some great ideas for your horse listed below!
- An apple a day (hand picked of course)
- Cookies (apparently the best are ginger snaps and fig neutons)
- Carrots broken and spread throughout their stall (so they can find little treats while stretching their legs)
- Adding a splash of maple syrup to warm water during the winter
- Monthly chiropractic massage sessions
- A bucket of beet pulp
- Alfalfa cubes soaked in warm water with oats
