Most horse owners have to stall their horses at least some of the time. That means urine, stinky Ammonia is a health risk to your animals. The accumulation of
ammonia in horse stalls and barns is more than an odor nuisance. Studies have concluded that low levels of ammonia stresses a horse’s upper respiratory airways
placing them at risk of pneumonia, heaves, and other serious illnesses. Foals are especially vulnerable to these ailments. Healthy Horse Stall Freshener absorbs and
neutralizes ammonia and odors while providing fresh and safe air for your horse in it’s stall.
Healthy Horse Stall Freshener is an all-natural, non-hazardous and non-toxic mineral. It captures, neutralizes and eliminates harmful levels of ammonia and odors.
Healthy Horse Stall Freshener is a far superior alternative to lime products for ammonia removal and moisture absorption.
There are few terms in the world of the horse owner that are dreaded more than Heaves, COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) now called RAO
(Recurrent Airway Obstruction), and IAD (Inflammatory Airway Disease). All of these respiratory diseases affect your equine partner’s performance and
compromise their overall health.
The way most of us keep our horses and animals stalled for long periods of time during the day and/or overnight can be a significant factor in the development of
these ailments. Many of us just do not have a choice in the matter they have to be stalled; however we do have a choice in how well we care for our equine
Healthy Horse Stall Freshener is the inexpensive solution to eliminating one of the three main causes of respiratory distress in horses - Ammonia. By being
proactive and providing your horse with fresh air to breathe in its stall you are promoting an environment conducive to health. If a horse’s respiratory tract is
compromised it becomes an easy access route for bacteria, viruses, mold, parasites and other foreign elements.
Why should I not use Lime?
BARN LIME (Also referred to as, Ag Lime or Dairy Lime) – Chemically known as, Calcium Carbonate. It is not caustic, toxic, harmful, etc., BUT…… Barn Lime
has essentially no ability to take up ammonia. If you dump enough barn lime on a urine spot you may succeed in covering up the ammonia and odors (same is true
if you use dirt/soil), however the ammonia remains and will eventually fill the environment again.
HYDRATED LIME – Chemically known as, Calcium Hydroxide Ca(OH)2. It is very caustic, toxic and hazardous to handle & breathe. Hydrated lime has a very
limited ability to essentially "cover-up" ammonia odor for a short period of time. And in the long run can actually increase ammonia. Why? Because urine contains
an unstable molecule (NH2). Lime and bacteria force the NH2 molecule to pick up another hydrogen atom. NH2 becomes HH3, which is ammonia gas. Explained
in more layman's terms: Ammonia evolution takes place in a "basic" (a high pH) environment. Hydrated lime's composition is "basic", therefore contributing to the
evolution of ammonia.
HYDRATED LIME (Calcium Hydroxide) bag contains the following HAZARD WARNING: (Copied from the Chemical Lime Company (CLC)/Brooksville,
FL34601 bag) Avoid contact with eyes or skin. Avoid breathing lime dust. Always wear NIOSH-approved eye goggles when handling lime. Wear protective
clothing to prevent skin contact. Ventilate or use a dust collector to prevent airborne lime dust. Use a NIOSH-approved dust respirator. Do not use this material
on playing fields or children's play areas. Do not take internally. FIRST AID: In case of eye contact, flush eyes thoroughly, including under eyelids, with water
for 15 minutes. CALL PHYSICIAN IMMEDIATELY. Wear protective clothing to prevent skin contact. If skin contact occurs, wash with water. Should
irritation continue, see a PHYSICIAN. If swallowed, CALL PHYSICIAN IMMEDIATELY.
Would you really want to put this in your horse’s environment?
Healthy Horse Stall Freshener is NOT Barn Lime/Ag Lime/Dairy Lime, or Hydrated lime. Healthy Horse Stall Fershener is a natural Zeolite mineral. It is
completely safe for the environment, neutralizes and removes ammonia and moisture and has no side effects.
Zeolite is currently used in large feedlots to control ammonia emissions and other Greenhouse gases. A Zeolite amendment in straw or wood chip pens reduces
potential respiratory problems and promotes an overall healthy environment.
Zeolite is also used for traction control as it does not break down like bentonite or diatomaceous earth. It is also non-dusting. Zeolite is also used to reduce flies in
feed and Horse Pen operations. Zeolite’s negative charge simply pulls positively charged odours into its matrix.
Other important features of a Zeolite amendment for pens are the composting and soil conditioning benefits.
• 100% Natural and Non-Toxic with no added chemicals or perfumes
• Completely compatible with existing bedding materials. Proven to extend the bedding life of the pen
• Absorbs up to 65% of its weight in moisture, thereby decreasing hoof problems and barn flies
• Adsorbs and holds ammonium, the main source of odor
• Excellent traction aid
• Provides for excellent compost and soil amendment
Zeolite is added at the base of the pen and reapplied each time the stall is cleaned or at regular intervals on top of the manure.
Directions for use: In a 12'X 12' stall environment, lay down 4 to 5 cups on the area, using more in moisture condensed areas. Cover with clean dry bedding.In
day to day stall maintenance,remove bedding material from wet areas. Reapply Healthy Horse and cover with dry bedding material (second application).

Hope Gregg don't mind but he asked a question but didn't leave his e-mail address so hopefully he will
visit this page and get his answer..........His question was We,ve been considering using zeolite in our
stalls for moisture & odor control but recently a friends farrier advised against it. He claims that it
adsorbs the moisture from the hoof, making it like cocrete and very difficult to work with. Do u have
any info re this ? thanx......name = greg
email = allen

subject = zeolite
My reply....Although it may absorb some moisture from the hoof i don't believe it will absorb so much
as to cause harm to the hoof in fact it promotes healthy hooves the thing you and the farrier should be
concerned about in a stall and trailer environment is the harmful bacterias from the horse's bodily
functions and the damage it does as they stomp around in it Zeolite eliminates the environment that
causes thrush any of the bacteria that cause disease to build in the hoof not to mention the absorbtion of
ammonia that will greatly reduce respitory problems. When you think about it we all should have been
worried all this time about our liberal use of lime in these situations around ourselves and our animals
so since i've found out about Zeolite i can't believe anybody uses anything else.Check out the use of
pond rocks for your horses water trough and also Zeolite is used as a feed additive. Hope this clears
somethings up thanks Rick Casaday
