May Box thoughts – We liked this box, but we weren’t crazy excited when we opened it. It is one of the higher value boxes this batch (and over all) loaded with a ton of useful goodies. We have a few notes marked on our account to custom what we get just a tad bit, so we were thrown an extra Winky Wash instead of an alternative item (which is great for us!). We go through sheath cleaner like crazy, so we’re happy to load up on this product and hopefully provide a gentile alternative to our normal cleaner. Champ loves Nickerbait (see our previous review here), so these were gone in less than a second. This particular cookie smells amazing and we considered snacking on one ourselves! The Silverquine Wound Gel is a handy item to have in our tack box for any minor issues. The shampoo sample was nice, but nothing terribly exciting. We were super happy to get a bottle of the new formulation of Showsheen Detangler Gel (smells yummy). This box included a coupon for Horse Sox as well.
June Box thoughts – We were pretty darn excited about this box (despite it’s value being the lowest of the bunch). It had a ton of products we had wanted to try (or already love). We were over the moon about getting the sample of Ecovet (even though it wasn’t enough of a product to get a real read on it (we have a full review of Ecovet coming soon!). We love Mrs. Conn’s sponges (see our review) and were super happy to get this one in our box. The full sized Showsheen Finishing Mist Spray is awesome! Champ liked the Feelgood horse treats, but we likely will never purchase these. We are intrigued by the VetSet cocoa butter…but we haven’t tried it yet (and we’re not sure how this is much different than some products we have seen marketed for humans). We also got a Mrs. Conn’s coupon in this box (yay!).
July Box thoughts – We had to wait a whole week to open up this box (we were out of town on vacation), so the suspense was horrible! We were more than happy when we opened up this box to find all of our new goodies. We were most excited about the Leather Honey cleaner. We’re pretty much obsessed with leather cleaners/conditioners…so trying another one helps feed that addiction. We cannot wait to use it. Champ loved the Cowgirl’s Kitchen cookies, however these are rather small and seem a bit overpriced. There was a green hoofpick thrown in this box…which is great since that is one of our colors. A new hoofpick is never bad! Also included was a 60cc tube of Farnam DigestAid paste and we are excited to try this out on a nervous belly (and we love that this paste can be used in small increments for maintenance doses. Absorbine Ultra Shield Green Gel is in this box too, and we hope it works (though we are usually dubious about “natural” and non poison based fly repellants. We’ll let you know what we think about it if it has any merits at all. This box also included a metric ton of coupons (slight exaggeration) from Farnam, a Draper Therapies coupon and a Leather Honey coupon.
All in all, we are still pleased with our subscription from A Horse Box. Our only real issue now is that we never get through stuff before our next box comes (and some products we’ve never had the need to use), so we’re gathering a real stockpile of stuff! We have 3 more boxes left on our subscription (we think), and that might be our last group of reviews. We’re getting so overwhelmed with product, that we may need to take a break for a while!
