Merry Christmas

Hello and Merry Christmas from all of us at Busby Quarter Horses. It has been quite an exciting year here for us with the addition of Blazin Jetolena along with several outstanding mares. Our breeding program is something we take great pride in and have been methodical about its creation; we know there will be some amazing prodigy coming out of it! With breeding season right around the corner and the coming arrival of our babies, our favorite time of year is almost upon us. Nothing is quite as humbling, awe inspiring or precious than the arrival of a new colt and the hopes and dreams that each one carries. Looking back on 2013 we have so much to be thankful for and looking forward to 2014 we have so much to be hopeful for. We have long awaited the arrival of the 2014 futurity year and are so excited to get it started. Please follow along with us in this journey we call our passion – I’ll try to keep you updated on all the happenings at the ranch. Until then may God bless each and every one of you.

Merry Christmas
Jeff, Andrea & all the crew at Busby Quarter Horses

How it Works:

Temperature:
First off, the cold will help take out heat and inflammation, the water temperature stays at 36 degrees for the entire treatment but can be adjusted as necessary. Secondly it helps control enzyme deterioration on tendon and ligaments in the early stages of an injury, thirdly it massively increases circulation. When horses are in the spa they under go vascular constriction, but when they are lead out of the spa blood will rush to the cooled area to to warm it, bringing oxygen and healing nutrients to it in the process.

Salts:
The spa has a high level of both Epsom Salts (MgSO4) and ordinary Salt (NaCl). Salt water has been known to be therapeutic for years. People use to be sent to the seaside for a wide range of ailments, from open wounds to arthritis. It has a poultice effect as well as an endothermic draw which will further increase the temperatures effect.

Aeration:
The spa is also aerated. This increases the dissolved oxygen content of the water as well as providing a massage effect. The fact that the water is continuously moving also means that the contact surface is also constantly changing.

Depth:
The water can be adjusted to any depth you require.
