5 Star saddle pads from Barn World

Barn World carries the highest quality saddle pads available.  All of the equine pads we offered are one-hundred percent wool and are uniquely designed to ensure they provide the best in saddle pad performance and comfort for both you and your equine partner.
Check out this video from the owner of 5 Star detailing how much quality goes into a 5 Star saddle pad and why it is so much better than the competition’s and remember to visit www.BarnWorld.com for all your livestock supply needs.

From the video:
A lot of gimmicks can be strapped under a saddle to get one benefit or another, but man has yet to create a product that outperforms virgin wool, and over the long haul, virgin wool content felt pads will outperform any other type of pad or blanket hands down.  5 stars 100% percent wool contoured saddle pads conform immediately to your horse’s back for perfect fit.  Our F-11 wool felt has the highest virgin wool content available and offers 3 times more compression protection and wicking ability than any other pad on the market.
While the importance of compression protection is pretty clear given the dominance of rubber, bubble wrap and space age jelly saddle pads today, only high quality wool felt offers great compression protection while simultaneously wicking away moisture.  That wicking action is the means by which heat is dissipated under the pressure of the saddle.  The best compression protection, coupled with the best wicking ability, translates to the best performance from your equine partner.
When you consider the amount of money one might spend on feed, tack, vet bills and entry fees to pursue your equine passion, a saddle pad with all the ingredients for maximum performance is essential.
While the big ships full of cheap goods leave a toxic trail all the way from Los Angeles to China and back, 5 Star is producing the highest quality products right here in the USA.

Cattle Guard Story: Firing ” cattle guards ” has been around for years

 

The cattle guards that Barn World carries cannot be ‘fired’, but according to some popular search results, politicians have hear about the large number of cattle guards and have thought differently!

The ‘firing’ of cattle guards is a spoof that’s been around for many years and is one of the top organic search results for cattle guards today even though it’s not based in truth.   Here is arecap by Harvey Johnston posted May 14, 2011 on www.reporternews.com that sums up the cattle guard story quite nicely:

Johnston:  Cattle guard story old; still relevant and funny

By Harvey Johnston

There’s no telling when the story had its genesis.  Most everyone says they’ve heard the story before.
However, it seems that in light of the president’s visit to El Paso this week, the story of retraining some fired “cattle guards” to be border guards has re-entered the lore of our land.
Earliest mention of the plan has been traced back to the mid-’50s, according to one website.  Most reports credit a government study revealing more than 100,000 cattle guards in Colorado. Basically, a national bureaucrat decided this was too many and ordered that half of them be fired.  A Colorado congressional bureaucrat entered the discussion suggesting they be “retrained” as border guards.
Now even city folks ’round here know the practical side of “cattle guards.” Also called vehicle pass, Texas gates and stock gaps, generally, they are horizontal steel rails placed at fence openings on roadways to prevent cattle from crossing. For some reason bovines will not step on the guards, apparently because they fear getting their feet caught between rails.
That itself is a questionable theory.
However, retraining “cattle guards” as border guards seemed to make sense to some bureaucrats. There was even some discussion as to what color their uniforms would be.  It traces back to the second Bush administration.

    Cattle Guards for Public Roads require a Barn World HS20 Certified Cattle Guard

    For superior HS20 certified cattle guards, visit www.BarnWorld.com.  We offer the necessary cattle guard certifications and strong cattle guards made from schedule 40 steel.  They come in a large variety of sizes to fit almost any project you may be involved in.

    Used primarily for livestock control, they can offer a strong deterrent to deer if placed side-by-side to form 12′ or more barrier in the direction of travel and other animals as well.  Please note that we do not recommend cattle guards for horses, goats or dogs as they simply are not effective.  Horses can get a leg broken in them and goats, dogs and other sure footed animals will be able to cross the cattle guard.

    Cattle guards can be made from different types of piping depending upon your livestock control needs.  We can use round 3-1/2″ or 4-1/2″  pipes or square pipes for the top rail.  Typically the larger and more round the pipe that is used on top, the more of a deterrent it is for livestock.  A 4-1/2″ pipe will have a greater curve and  thus provide a more unstable footing for a daring animal.  It will also have a larger gap between the pipes making it much more difficult to cross.  The smaller 3-1/2″ pipe will still keep livestock off of your cattle guard and will provide a smoother rider for crossing vehicles.  The same is true for the flat pipe.  It will offer a very smooth ride when crossing, but isn’t the strongest deterrent.

    Every HS20 rated cattle guard is certified to conform to the load rating requirements provided by the American Association of State Highway Transportation Officials or AASHTO.  They spell out the requirements and suitable load ratings for all highway rated cattle guards.   All of our rated cattle guards come with the engineer’s stamp to provide the assurance that you’re installing an AASHTO certified cattle guard.

    For more information on cattle guards and cattle guard installation, please visit the informational website: www.cattle-guards.com or give us a call at (720) 238-2190 and we’ll be glad to help.  Don’t forget, Barn World offers a large selection of livestock equipment and livestock supplies for all of your farm and ranch needs.
