Our barnyard animals are using
the pads to rub on. Also, they have
not found the material desirable to
chew on, which is a bonus.
These pads are versatile as
permanent exhibit fixtures or as a
novel item to change out. We can
use them with all of our hoovestock.
We are glad to have this product to
provide a safe place for these animals
to scratch themselves on and
anticipate that we can avoid wounds
created by itching accidents.

Nick installed itchin' posts in our giraffe, bison, reindeer, and zebra displays as well as in giraffe holding at Como Zoo. Our big male giraffe would leave piles of hair under the itchin' post indoors in his stall and we would also see him utilizing it outside, the female giraffe were a little more leery, but they have interacted with them. Itchin' posts are great for the bison, especially in the Spring when they are trying to get rid of their winter coats. Nick installed a large drain tube upright with itchin' posts all around it and our girls will rub their heads and bodies on it regularly.
Thank you very much for this product. I was at a loss of what to do with a itchy horse rubbing/pulling his mane out. This product works.
Hello Nickolas; Just a short Note to let You know how much my little Miniature Horse, Monte, enjoys his Itchin' Post. Even my Great Dane, Kingston, has dicovered the Benefits of a slow 'rub up against it' also. I am trying to get Pictures of both to send to You. Thank You for a great Product. Happy Whinnies from Monte and long Slobbers from Kingston.
Hugs and a tip of the old Cowboy Hat to You from their 'Mom' Jutta in Manistee, Michigan
The animals love your Itchin Post! The horses, the donkeys, the ponies and even the reindeer!
And it sure saves wear and tear on our fences and buildings.
