We found a study at the University of Madison Wisconsin about what colors horses can see. Blue, yellows and greens are shown on their color wheel as dominant colors visible to animals with cone shaped retinas. You can always combine colors to commemorate your favorite sports team if you’re not really into the scientific stuff though.

How many Itchin’ Posts do I need?

Itchin’ Post is ┬ádesigned to cover up spots where animals already rub or could rub and get splinters, scratches and lacerations. Those are Big Cuts that need stitches and leave scars forever.Walk around your place and find the spots you see hair stuck to or that look discolored.The most popular spot to mount them is on the corners of run-in shelters where animals hang out most. We mount them starting at head height and work our way down to the ground (or as far as you can go).If you don’t have anything sturdy, buy a 4×4 and plant it in the ground near the place your animals rub on the fence.Three Itchin’ Posts mounted up and down a 4×4 post provides six feet of rubbing area all the way around. Watch our videos on the home page for examples of how animals rub when you’re not looking.Remember, those big nubs give one of the greatest massages your animal will ever have. Massages feel really good to me, so give ’em plenty to enjoy!
