Q:
Can Equiwinner be used on a horse with a long thick coat?

A:
Equiwinner can be used on all types of horses. The Equiwinner patch does not have to be stuck onto the skin, since it works by signaling and nothing passes into the body of the horse. Equiwinner is designed to cling onto the coat hairs. In the case of a long coat simply part the hairs to allow the two nodes on the Equiwinner patch to come close to the skin.

Equiwinner is best placed on top of the hindquarter, the croup. If the coat is molting then surplus hairs should be first brushed off. If methylated spirits or a 'sheen' product has been used to improve the appearance of the coat, or there is field dirt, the area is best cleaned with surgical spirits or pure isolpropyl alcohol, available from any drugstore.
