Paddock Maintenance

The key to healthy horses and clean paddocks is through good pasture management.

Manure contaminated with parasite eggs is the most common way in which worms re-infect your horse's environment. Exposing your horse to the minimum amount of manure is the best way of reducing, if not eliminating harmful parasites. The early lifecycle of most internal parasites involves eggs and larvae which are dropped onto the ground in the poop by an infected horse which could end up infecting other horses when grazing in the fields. 

Picking up droppings as often as possible using the Paddock Cleaner will reduce the number of parasites and encourage the horses to eat from the whole of the field reducing selective grazing. The 'Trafalgar Clean Fan Paddock Cleaner System' sucks the droppings straight into the collection tub via a 5-inch diameter hose. The fan is located on the outside of the Paddock Cleaner and has a filter sock positioned inside the vacuum to stop any manure or other debris from causing damage to the paddock cleaner. The Trafalgar Paddock Cleaner will work in all weather conditions and on wet and dry poo.

The Trafalgar Paddock Cleaners can also be used to clean out water troughs, muck out the stables as well as cleaning up loose hay where the hay nets are filled for example. Mucking out your horses regularly with a Paddock Cleaner vacuum will help eliminate the risks of infection in confined areas. 

Poo picking your pastures regularly is the most effective way of reducing any horse's parasite problem. The Trafalgar Paddock Cleaner vacuums are a huge help with this arduous task, especially in large fields. the trafalgar Paddock Cleaner is quicker, easier, and more efficient at poo picking when compared to manual back breaking, time consuming methods such as the shovel and wheelbarrow! Good paddock cleaning helps reduce the risk of infection and contributes to a low worm count. If you're not sure of the worm situation, it is best to consult a veterinary surgeon.
