Taking the Magic Out of Spring Coat Shedding

Through these series of talks, Dr. Tweeten will share some simple but straight forward ways to deal with the spring coat shedding season. By using a set of effective tools often found in most tack boxes, one easily

•  remove loose hair

•  minimize damage to existing hair

•  utilize natural body oils already present on the skin and in the coat

•  minimize the formation of static electricity

•  encourage the growth of a healthy summer coat

•  develop a soft hand touch that encourages trust and strengthens communication

Dr. Tom Tweeten is a scientist with more than 45 years of experience in analytical chemistry. He has worked with industrial chemicals and human and animal nutrition to develop chemical testing procedures to insure product quality and integrity. About nineteen years ago Dr. Tweeten and a couple of young entrepreneurs began developing a line of horse care grooming products. Since Dr. Tweeten is a horse owner and show competitor, he has worked to create products that are healthy and beneficial for his horses while achieving the aesthetic results he wants. He will be available to visit and offer ideas to grooming related questions at Booth B27 in the CHS Miracle of Birth Center during the Minnesota Horse Expo.
