Vetrolin Shine Spray Update and Review

First, housekeeping: I changed my RSS address to a third party that will allow me to not lose my list of subscribers should I ever decide to move the blog.  If you follow Connor and I through an RSS reader, please make sure you are still getting updates from me, and delete and re-add Cob Jockey if you are not!  Thanks!

Earlier this summer, I won a bottle of Vetrolin Shine Spray in Karley's 100 Followers contest, and promised to do a writeup on how well the sunscreen in it kept Connor from fading this summer.  I am not at the barn every day, and I didn't know if a couple of applications per week was enough for it to work, until a clinician asked if he had been on night turnout all summer.  She complimented his non-faded coat and was shocked when I said he was on 24/7 turnout, no flysheet.  "My horse is totally faded, what's your secret?"



Usually by the end of the summer, he's a brassy orange color, his red hairs all tipped with orange, but not this summer.  This summer, he's his normal reddish-orange, shiny and sassy, with very little fading.

Here's my official vote for Vetrolin Shine Spray with Sunscreen: especially if you are at the barn every day, that stuff works.  If you're me and it only gets on your horse's body three or four days a week, you'll still see a difference.  If you're not me and you can apply it every day, it will probably create a glowing force field of sun protection around your horse.  (If that actually happens, take a picture for me.)



Oh my GOSH those breeches are unattractive.  I apologize to all of you, but they're my only pair!


Also on the subject of coat issues, in the above picture you can see the weird hair pattern that develops every summer on Connor's butt.  The hair on his backside actually grows in a different direction than the hair on the top of his hindquarters, and until this summer I didn't know why.  Now I do: his tail is so thick and heavy, it brushes his hair into sort of a natural quarter mark all summer as he swats at flies.  I've never had a horse's tail do that to their body hair before, anyone else's horses do this?

  2. Shy's butt hairs by her tail are like that too! And so is the tail of the Percheron she lives with. I think his tail is pretty thick, but it is docked. You can see where he is constantly swishing it that the hairs grow different.
    I love Vetrolin products, I'll have to try that for Shy next summer!

    1. Okay, so it must be a drafty little pony and draft thing! I'm glad you commented. I've never really been around anything other than Quarter Horses and Thoroughbreds until the past few years.

    1. I'd say you should buy a pallet of it being in Texas, but Simon doesn't look faded to me!

  4. Very nice. Roz doesn't ever really bleach out in the summer but I know what to try if Emi does!

    1. Lucky you, I wonder why he doesn't bleach. Maybe it's the cloudy PNW!

    1. Glad I could help clear that up, it mystified me for almost two years before I finally figured it out.
