Straw Hat Season is Here Again!
Now is the time to put away your felt hats and trade them in for a straw hat. Straw hats are very beneficial during summer as they are lightweight, breathable and of course – fashionable! With so many different straw hats to choice from, Rod’s has put together a guide to help you choose.
Palm Leaf Hats – Palm leaf hats are a great choice for working the farm, tending the horses or just spending your day outdoors. It is a thicker straw hat that will protect you from the elements. Palm leaf hats are water resistant and also SPF proof.
Bangora Straw – Bangora hats are very versatile hats. They are a fashionable hat with many different weaves and varying styles to choose from. The material is tightly woven to protect you from the sun. However, they do not repel water; they are made of rolled paper.

With fly season just around the corner, it’s time to make sure your horse is armored against infectious diseases that are transferred by flies and other insects. One of the diseases to vaccinate for at this time of year is Equine Infectious Anemia otherwise known as “swamp fever.” EIA is transmitted by bloodsucking insects such as horseflies. Symptoms include fever, weight loss, marked anemia, jaundice, weakness, and swelling. Due to the severity of the disease – and that there is no real treatment – you may be required to obtain a Coggins test before showing your horse, selling your horse, or boarding him at a barn.
Rod’s and The Ohio State University Galbreath Equine Center are teaming up to make vaccinating and testing your horse hassle free! Stop by Rod’s Tack Barn on Saturday, April 27th from 10am – 4pm for our drive-through vaccine clinic and Coggins testing. All vaccines and tests will include: administration of the vaccine by a veterinarian, collection and processing of the blood test, and paperwork from the Coggins test.
