Rockin Western Cowgirl
It's that time of year again when all of the stock shows & rodeos are taking place! Our favorite is the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo in March. Every year that have a spectacular concert line up plus great action in the rodeo and horse arena. The shopping is of course unbelievable too with rows and rows of merchants selling anything from home décor to ranch equipment. All of the kids involved in 4H & FFA are in attendance with their projects they work hard on every year with animals such as pigs, sheep and more to ag mechanics welding projects.
All of us girls are constantly wondering what to wear, but we've put together an outfit suggestion that will have you Rockin' It all night long at any of the concerts! Which stock show or rodeo is your favorite to attend?

As you can see there is great value in the products included in A Horse Box and I can use every single product. The Miniature Horse World Magazine isn't particularly relevant to me, but I do enjoy reading about different equine breeds & enjoy the unique cuteness of the American Miniature Horse breed. The products included in the August box are especially appropriate for summer barn! I can see the horse treats & fly repellent being used immediately around my barn.

The Original Bugg Off ReviewI was sent two 1 oz samples of the Original Bugg Off for free in order to review this product. The opinions expressed in the post below are 100% my own.
It's summer time and that means flies and all sorts of insects are out around our horse barn. In order for the horses to get a little comfort & relief from those pesky, biting bugs I am constantly applying fly spray. Normally, I use whatever is easily purchased at the local farm and ranch store, but I was recently approached by Lyndra Lydy, the Original Bugg Off
creator, to see if I would be interested in trying a sample of their all natural bug spray for my horses. I jumped at the opportunity to try this new product as it is ALL NATURAL and I want minimize my exposure as well as my horses exposure to harmful chemicals. Take a close look at this ingredient list:
Mineral Oil Citronella Oil, Lemongrass Oil, Vinegar & Water. That's it! There are no hard to pronounce ingredients and it's all things I have heard of before.
I could not wait to try this spray out and decided to put the Original Bugg Off
to the ultimate test. This past weekend, we hauled the horses to a Cowboy Mounted Shooting event I competed in located near Poteau, Oklahoma. This venue has had plenty of rain in the past few weeks and lots of heat; the bugs were out in full force and loving the humidity. Within a matter of minutes my horse, Elvis, was covered in stable flies and a had a huge horse fly biting at him. I followed the instructions and shook the bottle very well to ensure all of the ingredients were adequately blended together and began spraying all the Original Bugg Off
all over my horse. The first thing I noticed was this product smelled terrific compared to those commonly used fly sprays found at the local feed store. I definitely noticed the citronella oil smell and so did the flies that were around. After about 2 minutes the flies were off of my horse. This product works as advertised! The only drawback I noticed was I did get a small amount of product on my fingers during application; it was a tiny bit greasy feeling, but washed off easily with soap and water. There was not a greasy residue at all on my horse and I do feel as if the mineral oil & lemongrass oil in this product helped his sheen. This product worked throughout the day and I was able to shoot my match without the worry of the insects bothering Elvis. Here's a photo from the competition this weekend:
According to the founder of Cowgirl Creations Intl LLC
and the creator of "Original Bugg Off
" the product can be used on all farm animals including horses, cattle, sheep, goats, pigs, fowl, dogs & cats. The all natural spray repels stable flies, horse flies, ticks, fleas & mosquitoes. Cowgirl Creations also recommends spraying it on the floors of your barn & kennels to repeal the flies as well.
You can order the Original Bugg Off by click here
calling Lyndra at 877-585-4112 or send her an email at firstname.lastname@example.org The Original Bugg Off is extremely economically at $17.99 for a 32 ounce bottle and we will be using it around our barn this summer.

Review of A Horse Box
My latest obsession is the sample subscription boxes available by the month and I have discovered a new one that I am so excited about called A Horse Box
Much like the monthly subscription service for beauty products such as Glam Bag & Birchbox, A Horse Box offers a great selection of samples but they are for horses! As a horsewoman, it's often hard to come across new horse products in a sample size and I am often reluctant to shell out $15 dollars for a new grooming product or even more for a horse supplement product at my local feed & tack store when I am not sure it's going to work for me. A Horse Box gives you the avenue to try new products without the guilt of wasting a ton of money on new products when you just want to sample or try it out! I was sent a box for free by A Horse Box for the review and you must look at what all was included in the May box:
As you can see, the box was full of products! On their website, A Horse Box
, it says each box will range in a value from $50-$75 dollars and I would say that the May box is on the upper end of that range. The box included:
- Gastro Solution - Magnesium + Calcium by La Victoria Performance (1 quart)
- Silverquine, LLC Horse Wound & Summer Sore Dressing (4 fl. oz)
- Southern Swag Organic Horse Cookies by Charleighs Cookies / Wolf Ridge Farms (3 cookies)
