In the Spring of 1969, Ramona and Donald Sibbet, RaDon founders, decided to pattern and manufacture their own high quality horse blankets and related accessories. They soon realized they had "struck a nerve" in the show horse community as requests to produce their custom products for the marketplace became overwhelming.

The company prospered and grew throughout the '70s, '80s and '90s with many innovations and changes to further improve both the quality and service performance of their products.

A tradition of innovation and exceptional quality continue to this day with RaDon's revolutionary new line of fabrics, designs and custom tailored products. As a result, the company has recently expanded our manufacturing facility to meet the outstanding value of our products.

Maggot Control using Arbico's Bio-Pests-B-Gone Beneficial Nematodes.The nematodes aremicroscopic, non-segmented worms that occur naturally in soil. Once released, they seek out and poison the maggots.

Adult Fly Control with proven Arbico products including the Solar Fly Trap, Insect-A-Peel System and Aloe Herbal Horse Spray.

Stop your fly problem before it starts this spring! Check out the Arbico program in detail for more information and to order products. Arbico works!

Arbico's four easy steps are all it takes for maximum fly control in your barn, stable and farm. The proven program combines the following measures:

Biological Fly Control uses Arbico's “tiny fly parasites” which are tiny, harmless gnat-sized insects that eliminate flies before they hatch. Proven to work and not harm humans or animals in any way! The fly eliminators kill flies in their pupal stage while they are developing in the ground.

Manure management is the first step to effective fly control. Removal of manure from stalls and surrounding areas on a regular basis will help eliminate flies. Arbico's Pro-Biotica consists of naturally-occuring microorganisms that work together to decompose organic matter in soils, manure and compost.

The first bronze was cast thousands of years ago and little has changed in the process over the centuries. Creating a fine art bronze sculpture is a lengthy process requiring many hours of hard work, with the piece going from clay to wax and then to bronze. The final step involves the bronze piece heated with a torch and sprayed with chemicals and paints giving the sculpture its unique coloring. Talented patina artists can create a limitless variety of colors on a bronze sculpture. The final step is waxing the sculpture and placing it on a wood base.

The Shoo-fly Automatic Insect Control System is programmable in operation of desired cycle time and hour of the day (24 hours). This system eliminates waste and saves money in insecticide costs. The system is manufactured in Ocala, FL and is custom designed for your barn. Installation usually takes six to eight hours. Parts and insecticide orders are shipped anywhere in the United States.

Shoo-fly water emulsifiable insecticides are compatible with all other spray systems of this type.

For more information regarding installation, services and insecticides, visit the Shoo-fly website at www.shoo-fly.com. Or phone (800) 248-5858.

An electric pump begins humming. Immediately a fine mist of water-based insecticides appears out of nozzles located in the ceiling of the barn. The light air currents in the barn slowly swirl the mist around and flies begin dropping out of the air, dead. After a minute the pump shuts off and the mist vanishes.

As the farm manager and a client approach the area where the client's horses are boarded, they find the animals calm and content. The barn is free of flying insects.

The insecticides and Automatic Insect Control System, in the above scenario, are the result of feedback from the experienced horsemen who require a safe, economical and effective insect control system.
