Ticked Off Over Ticks

Farnam contest provides 80 winners with a six-week supply of Equi-Spot Spot-On Fly Control for horses.

From AQHA Corporate Sponsor Farnam

Whether your horse is roaming free in the pasture or out on a trail ride, one of the most annoying creatures confronting your horse are ticks.

Ticks are often found on tall grasses and in wooded areas just waiting for your horse to pass by so they can move onto him. Not only are tick bites irritating and painful, but ticks may carry diseases as well as causing anemia due to the loss of blood.

Farnam Horse Products wants to help protect your horse from biting, blood-sucking ticks as well as flies, gnats and mosquitoes this summer with the Equi-Spot: Ticked Off About Ticks contest.

Eighty winners will be drawn at random – 10 winners every other week beginning April 27, 2010 – to win a six-week supply of Equi-Spot Spot-on Fly Control for horses.

Beginning April 12, 2010, contestants may enter by clicking on the “promotions” tab on the Farnam Horse Web site. Winners will be drawn through August 3, 2010.

Official contest rules will be posted in the same location. Only one entry per household will be allowed.

Osteochondritis Dissecans is a condition that causes more than just normal “growth pains” in young horses. Learn about this and much more in AQHA's FREE Young Horse Joint Health report. Get your copy today!

Equi-Spot Spot-On Fly Control for Horses is available in a three-pack of 10 ml tubes and has a suggested retail price of $17.59.

Equi-Spot Spot-On Fly Control is an official fly control product of the American Quarter Horse Association and United States Equestrian Federation.
