Review: Hay Where's That Blue Stuff and It's a Fungus Amungus Shampoo

I am not going to lie- I am in the middle of a battle. Lexie is notorious for getting rain rot, and, because I'm an idiot, Candy has it too. I've tried MTG, Fungicide, Eqyss Microtek, and a barn concoction of Lysol and bleach; all of which have failed me. This has been going on since November. I'm dying.

When I went home for Christmas, I stopped by my favorite tack store to spend money I don't have, and noticed *FREE* samples of Hay Where's That Blue Stuff and the It's a Fungus Amungus shampoo.

Back in December when the true fight began.
I snatched up one of each and couldn't wait to try them. Well, let me tell you- this is a product of MIRACLES. One application of the Blue Stuff, and existing scabs fell off quickly; this was a 3 week process of every other day application so it wasn't an instant fix, but once it fell off, it didn't come back. Since Candy was not as bad as Lexie, I just stuck with the Blue Stuff. Lexie also received weekly baths of Fungus Amungus; I left it on to soak for 15 minutes, rinsed, and followed up with Blue Stuff.

Not only are both of them 90% rain rot free, Lexie's hair is growing back in where there used to be bald spots and open sores (it was that bad). Lexie seems happier- less itchy, less painful. Candy still looks like an overweight ASPCA case with his yak coat, ultrasound bald spot, abdominocentesis bald spot, and a few bald post-rain rot free spots, but he's happy and healthy (AND DRINKING WATER) so I'll take it.

The full size bottle of Hay, Where's That Blue Stuff retails for $26.95, which is pricey, but if rain rot isn't clearing up, this is an excellent option. It's a Fungus Amungus shampoo has a bit of a less cringe-worthy price tag at $19.95.

Overall, I give the products a 9/10. The price of the Blue Stuff makes me cringe a bit, which is why I can't give a full 10 out of 10, but this product is an absolute miracle worker!

Sorry for all the reviews lately- I'm trying to figure out a way to have riding posts with pictures of me on a horse- it's a work in progress.

  1. I've heard great things about their stuff!

  2. I LOVE Hay Where's That Blue Stuff! I picked up the lotion and shampoo at the PA Horse Expo last year on the recommendation from a friend, and it works great! Glad you liked it too :)
