Business Week Small Biz - Fall 2006

"In 1999 I was working for Harvard Business School as a consultant and riding my horse, Westley, after work. One evening, Westley just didn’t seem his normal self. I checked his feed bucket to make sure he was getting the supplements he needed but they weren’t there. Westley was boarded with more than 30 horses, all of were probably getting different supplements at different doses. It’s hard for barn managers to keep up. I started thinking that there had to be a better way to get the right supplements at the right dosages to these animals."

Riding Instructor - Fall 2006

"A must have pick of the SmartPak Equine staff, the EZ-All Foamer is the easy way to wash saddle pads, blankets, aisle ways, trailers, and more without also soaking yourself. The applicator attaches to your hose and automatically regulates the amount of soap or detergent that is dispensed into the water stream.

Introduced in 2000, SmartPaks are synonymous with convenience in barn management. SmartPaks are the custom-ordered, pre-measured containers of your horse’s daily supplements that are shipped right to your home or barn each month. ‘Called the Barn Manager’s Best Friend, SmartPaks save time on feeding, protect the potency of supplements, and gives piece of mind that your horses are being fed correctly every time,’ says Nina Akerley, product specialist for SmartPak Equine. Now SmartPaks are available for your canine companions, too. A SmartPak representative can offer you a quote for your horse’s or dog’s needs.

"There is a whole world of need-to-have horse items out there that we didn’t know we needed to have until someone invented them.

Equus - October 2005

"Many horses require medications or feed supplements in their older years. And although adding a top dressing or grinding up a few pills to add to each meal sounds straightforward enough, it can be a logistical challenge in some boarding situations. There are a few ways you can make sure your hourse gets what he needs: Grind up medications and place daily portions in individual 'baggies' that can be dumped onto rations, or purchase containers with premeasured doses of medications and supplements, such as SmartPaks. Just be sure that the baggies or containers are clearly marked with your horse's name."

Dressage Today - October 2003

Smart Idea, Smart Business, SMARTPAK: One horsewoman saw a need and turned it into a multi-million dollar business. When Becky Minard rescued Westley from a horse dealer, the Thoroughbred/Quarter Horse cross was all skin and bones, and it was clear he needed a lot of love and good nutrition. Minard's veterinarian suggested Vitamin E (for an eye problem), a joint supplement and a daily dewormer. Despite the fact that Westley was boarded at a top barn in Massachusetts it became clear that he wasn't getting these necessary supplements, so Minard talked with her barn manager who explained the difficulty: A large dressage barn might have 40 horses that each require specific brand-name supplements with different dosages.

Equus - July 2002

"Fatal Attraction: Pesticide-free mosquito trap. This propane-powered device emits a continuous plume of heat, moisture, carbon dioxide and an additional agent designed to lure mosquitoes, blackflies and other blood-seeking flying insects by mimicking a mammal's respiration. The insects are drawn into the trap by a vacuum and caught in a net, where they die within 24 hours."

"Mosquito Magnet Uses the Power of Propane Also new on the pest-control front is the Mosquito Magnet from SmartPak Equine. Tested in environments as challenging as the Florida Everglades, the Mosquito Magnet confounds fly victim-detection systems by mimicking the carbon dioxide exhalation of humans and horses. Powered by a portable propane tank, it emits carbon dioxide, heat, moisture, and an octenal attractant. Mosquitoes, which rarely venture more than 200 yards from where they hatch, zero in on the Mosquito Magnet, are silently sucked in, and die of dehydration within 24 hours."

Stable Management - June 2002

"The new mosquito control products have hit the market in time for this summer ... Called the Mosquito Magnet, the system emits carbon dioxide, heat, moisture and an octenal attractant to lure mosquitoes, no-see-ums, sand flies and black flies into a trap where they dehydrate and die without the use of pesticides. The trap is powered by propane so it can be placed anywhere. Every three weeks, the collection nets need to be emptied, the propane tank refilled and more attractant put in."
