ABOUT 


KILLIAN BRANCH FARM IS A FULL SERVICE EQUINE LAUNDRY THAT HAS BEEN SERVICING NORTH GEORGIA, and beyond, FOR OVER A DECADE. WE ARE known for our friendliness, attention to detail, exceptional repair work and a commitment to fair pricing. OUR NUMBER ONE PRIORITY Is keeping horses warm and dry and we strive for complete customer satisfaction.  Using a professional equine laundry and repair service is the best way to ensure you get as many years out of your blanket as possible. 


 WASH


no bleach. no oxiclean. no harsh chemicals.IN ORDER TO PRESERVE THE INTEGRITY OF YOUR TURN-OUT blanketS WE ONLY USE products specifically formulated for equine garments.

Standard laundry detergents are harsh, corrosive, damaging AND likely to break down the DWR (durable waterproof repellent) of your turnouts; thus, making it very difficult to fully re-waterproof for subsequent use. Household detergents, de-greasers, bleach and oxiclean can also cause severe allergic reactions and skin sensitivities in some horses. If you plan on washing your own blankets and saddle pads steer clear of these products. Ask me about the products I use (and LOVE) and I'll gladly point you in the right direction.

Fleece, cotton, wool & sheepskin  are all washed in a soap FORMULATED to meet the specific needs of natural & wicking fibers. all natural fiber items are washed in cold water  to prevent shrinking.  Lastly, all of our items are line-dried then packaged in plastic to keep moisture out and the glorious freshness in.

 

 


WATER

PROOF 


RE-WATERPROOFING  ANNUALLY IS A GREAT WAY TO ENSURE YOUR HORSE STAYS DRY DURING THOSE MISERABLy WEt COLD SPELLS WE TEND TO GET AROUND JANUARY AND THROUGH TO MARCH. OUR WATERPROOFING AGENT SEALS OUT MOISTURE WHILE ALLOWING YOUR RUG TO  RETAIN ITS BREATH-ABILITY. It is applied in-wash and wraps itself around the individual fibers of the fabric creating an exceptional waterproof barrier . super scientific. super cool. super dry horses. 


REPAIR


MISSING A LEG STRAP? GOT A RIP ? WE CAN FIX THAT! WE ARE FULLY EQUIPPED TO FIX REPAIRS LARGE AND SMALL; HOWEVER, IF YOU DO FIND YOURSELF IN NEED OF A NEW BLANKET WE ARE A SCHNIEDER's DEALER AND WILL GLADLY ASSIST YOU IN FINDING THE PERFECT REPLACEMENT. We also do custom alterations such as replacing chest buckles to chest snaps. the same goes for belly-straps and we can swap out your leg straps for a tail strap. once you switch to snaps you'll never go back. it's a huge time saver when you have multiple horses to dress/undress and you can leave your gloves on!!

*PLEASE NOTE * Any blanket in need of repair MUST be clean. We accept customer cleaned blankets but reserve the right to deem whether or not it is satisfactorily clean. This is done because horse grime will quickly  gunk up our sewing machine which causes major delays.
