Are you dreading THE JOB?
We’re thrilled to introduce a new product that makes this inevitable, hands-on job at least less unpleasant for you and your horse. Smeg-U-Later – the All Natural Sheath Cleaner – named based on April Rotha’s submission to our Name It To Claim It Contest.
This all natural formula is made with gentle yet effective coconut derived cleansers and soothing Honeysuckle Extract to make sure our precious geldings and stud muffins don’t get irritated down there. We’ve also added essential oil of Lavender known for its calming properties. Let’s face it, we all want our horses to be nice and calm when we’re doing THE JOB. If your horse gets a little antsy, give him a sniff and you’ll see his eyes glaze over, making the whole experience more pleasurable for both of you. The result? A happy horse with a squeaky clean lavender smelling undercarriage (and you’ll have lavender scented hands too). Smeg-U-Later is also great for cleaning delicate skin like nostrils and around the eye area!

Why Sheath Cleaning?
If you are the proud owner of a gelding or stallion, you know what I’m talking about. It’s the job we love to hate, and some of us ask our vet to do it or avoid it completely. Yes, I am talking about cleaning your precious gelding or stud muffin’s “undercarriage”. And yes, someone needs to do it.
Smegma is a collection of dirt and excretions that are completely normal. Smegma builds up around the sheath of the penis and should be cleaned for the sake of your horse’s health and comfort. Guidelines suggest twice a year, but every horse is different. Smegma hardens and forms a “bean” that can cause serious pain for your horse. It can lead to behavior problems (really, can you blame him?) and worse, health problems. Dirty sheaths also lead to every horse owner’s nightmare. Tail rubbing! And the odor, you cannot forget that.
p.s. If you’re a mare owner, remember that the wax build up between their teats needs to be cleaned too., as it can lead to an uncomfortable itch.
p.s.s. Smeg-U-Later can be used to clean delicate areas around your horse`s eyes and nostrils. We tested it – on ourselves – and it works fabulous in remove eye makeup. We are against testing on animals, but we`re all over testing products on ourselves. I mean if it irritated my eyes, wouldn’t it irritate my horse`s?

I’d like to share with you a latest testimonial from one our customers – Shauntelle from the Harding Heights Ranch in Trail, BC. Here we go:
“My Mom and I run Harding Heights Ranch Ltd. and we strive to provide the most natural/holistic care possible for our herd of 15 horses. I came upon EcoLicious Equestrian while reading my online subscription of Holistic Horse. I was immediately captured by the fact that they were a Canadian company but more so that they were All Natural. So, I decided to try them and I ordered a couple of their products. The De-Stress Intensive Mane & Tail Treatment quickly became my favorite! Not only did it work and smell wonderful, it lasted!! Yay. I had been struggling with other products that did a good job at first but after awhile the manes were far worse than they had ever been! Ugg. I try not to touch my horses manes too often but every once in awhile they do need to be managed… this for me happens about once a year.”
“I was so in love with the smell of the products and so were my horses! My Stallion, Rowan, who is a Suffield Horse from the Suffield Military Block in Alberta and came from wild stock is a fussy creature who would rather flee, while at liberty, then see me coming at him with a bottle in my hand!! So, armed with my newest product, Comfort Me Healing Balm, I approached him to tend to a surface wound on his neck only to have him bolt away to the other end of his paddock. What a brat! So I quickly put some Comfort Me on my fingers and tucked the bottle away in my pocket and proceeded after him with caution! I gently approached, keeping my distance with my fingers extended for him to smell. He stretched his head out to sniff my hand. As he sniffed his eyes started to calm and his body relaxed as he stepped towards me with his head down!! Wow, I was so excited!! He loved it! Yay again!! I proceeded to fix his scratches and did everything I could find searching up and down his legs to find any excuse to use the product.”
“I now have the Hoof Therapy Serum which will be a great tool for all of our barefoot horses. I am very excited about its antibacterial and anti-fungal properties and once again it smells amazing! I was spoiled at Christmas as one of my very thoughtful friends bought me and two of our other horse friends the Hands On which is amazing and so silky. And all because I had been raving so much about the EcoLicious line!”
“I love the products so much that I gave it as a Christmas gift to another one of my dear friends who is also an all-natural girl with her herd of horses. I wanted her to see what awesome products they were and I knew that she would be just as thrilled with them as I am. She now has all the products that I do! I have added EcoLicious to my favorite web links on my website as well as continuing to promote you on my Facebook page.”
“I have dealt with the customer care team twice now, once on the phone and once via email and they were so polite and helpful that it makes me want to support them even more!!”
