Montana Horse Trailers ~ Lewistown, MT

Anne Troop was so impressed with Harmar, Inc that she became a sales rep in 2011 and got her dealership license in 2015 creating Montana Horse Trailers. If you talk to Anne you will hear the passion for these trailers as well as the desire to teach consumers about the safety of trailers. One of their products is a 3 horse bumper pull living quarter trailer. They specialize in custom orders and the trailers are built one at a time with quality and safety being their first priority. "We live in an age of saturation, specifically, a market saturated with sub-par quality products that are mass produced. Mass produced with the intent of turning a profit, not satisfying you, the customer. Montana Horse Trailers will not accept such a poor standard."  Take a look at Montana Horse Trailers today!

Horsewears

I love creating and repurposing old items into artful creations. I designed a bezel concho to use in making my concho/rosettes, which the majority of, are finished in resin.

I take custom orders and can help you create a set of conchos to fit your style.

I also found that my hardware can be used as scarf slides. I have even made some napkin rings with them as well!

If you have an idea I will be happy to work with you on creating it. I have created sets for drill teams, driving teams and lots of people that want something unique on their bridles or halters.

I also sell my hardware if you would like a DIY project.

Insect Control

Use Fly Predators To Kill Flies Before They Hatch

Fly Predators are the natural enemy of flies, but never bother people or animals. Without resorting to chemicals, you’ll kill flies before they emerge. That way they never get a chance to bother you or your animals or reproduce by the gazillions.

You simply sprinkle Fly Predators near all manure areas every three to four weeks during warm months. In just a few minutes you’ve done your fly control for the month. It’s as simple as opening a sack of potato chips!

Preventing flies is key,  If you just go after adult flies buzzing around but that’s only about 15% of the population at any time. If you don’t stop the future ones you’ll be plagued all summer.  Check out Spalding Fly Predators today!
