This breaks previous state and North American records and is only 265 pounds shy of breaking the world record. When asked how he did it, his response was simple, “I don’t know. I found that they seemed to be happy with the water that I was giving them, so I just kept it constant. I didn’t over feed it, I was just gonna take what I got…I found that an overhead misting system [was] something they seemed to like, so I just kept it like that the rest of the day, week or the year.”

Koolfog Launches Stablecool Equestrian Cooling Solutions

Koolfog Launches Stablecool Equestrian Cooling Solutions

Stablecool, Koolfog’s new line of equestrian cooling products, utilizes the power of evaporative cooling to reduce temperatures in barns, stables and corrals. Stablecool solutions range from systems tailored to individual stalls to systems designed to accommodate large commercial equestrian facilities. Because heat stress is as much a concern for horses as it is for humans. As science advances, we become more aware of subtle indicators well before heat stress or exhaustion hit. As our awareness expands, so do our techniques for creating cool environments for our most precious assets. Until now, horse owners have struggled with ways to keep their horses cool, comfortable and healthy during the hot summer months. Koolfog offers horse trainers, equestrian facility owners and  equestrian enthusiasts alike a solution that effectively lowers air temperatures, as opposed to other cooling techniques used in the past.

As Koolfog’s superior designed high pressure, pure water pumps guide water through our stainless steel misting line, water particles become atomized as they spray out of our anti-drip nozzles. As these particles evaporate, this process effectively removes the energy, in the form of heat, from the air. In the past, horse owners have utilized cooling methods that include fans, fodder,  baths and shade. However, these methods fall short in effectively lowering air temperatures as well as using up valuable time and resources that could have been assigned elsewhere. As outdoor cooling solutions have become more available, veterinarians all over are recommending misting systems as a more effective way of avoiding heat stress and exhaustion than traditional techniques.

Summer is your busiest time. Gain some peace of mind with Koolfog’s new Stablecool Cooling Solutions for any equestrian facility design. With custom design and American manufacturing to serve as our backbone and distributors in both Northern and Southern California, your most valuable assets will be cool and comfortable under Koolfog’s clouds of mist for any equestrian outdoor cooling solution.
