Horse-care products from Palisade

By Bob Silbernagel

Horse-show participants in western Colorado may run into Mary Leonard this summer. The Palisade woman has developed and is selling her own line of horse-care products through her company called Lineshack. They include a mane and tail detangler and coat sheen called Shine Hiney and Show Blaze, to make the white on a horse's face or feet stand out. She also has a lavendar-based fly spray, some horse treats and cotton grooming pads.

I bought a bottle of the Shiney Hiney to try on my horse, Moose, whose tail has been tangled for too long. After a couple uses, it has made it quite a bit easier to work a comb through his tail. That's Mary applying some of the Shiney Hiney to Moose's tail, while his buddy, Turk, looks on. I haven't tried any of her other products.

Mary spent more than three decades showing horses, mostly in the paint horse world. She developed her horse products as a result of that experience. She lived and had a ranch in the Winter Park area for most of that time, and had a riding school in Winter Park. She moved to Palisade about six years ago, and though she doesn't own any horses now, she tries to "always keep that horse connection."

You can reach Mary via e-mail at linescha@gmail.com. Or call 970-464-9022.
