I was born and raised on Tybee Island, Ga. My Father , Chuck Bishop was a Major in the Tybee Island Police Department for 30 years. My Parents also owned and operated the Bel-air Motel on Butler Avenue, at Tybee.
I began my Law Enforcement career at age 18 with the FBI in Savannah, Ga. There I was a clerk. In 1976 after attending College at night for three years I was hired with the GBI in 1976 as a sworn Special Agent. I was stationed in Gainesville, Ga. I retired in 1999 after 23 years of service.
In 2000, my 6 year old daughter wanted to learn how to ride a horse. So we found a trainer and she began her lessons. A short time passed, and we purchased a small 12 acre horse farm in North Hall County, Ga. in Gainesville, Ga. Then we purchased three horses, the a horse trailer then a Barn… more lessons… more shows…. you know how it goes….
Once our Horses Blankets were dirty and torn I tried to find a service to clean them. I could not fine one here in Georgia. I decided to try myself. I had been sewing most of my life. When our blankets got torn I would try to was them in the washer in the barn then repair them. I started with a power washer and a large washing machine.
That lasted a few years… Then when the business grew and dirty blankets appeared at the farm from all over. We knew this was a needed service. To date we have washed and repaired over 3,000 blankets.
We have a 35 Lb. Uni Mac and this year we bought a new 65 lb Uni Mac commercial washer and extractor . It has over 35 computerized wash cycles. It does an excellent job. So all the blankets are power washed then also washed in the Uni Mac.
We have seen a great deal of dirty blankets and blankets that the owner thought could not be repaired. It has been a challenge to put them back to functional condition.
Why spend $ 100 or more for a new blanket, when it can be washed and repaired and waterproofed for under $ 40.00. We are all about saving money.
We wanted to help people to take care of their horses and not have to spend a lot of money for the care of their Horse Blankets. So that is the story…. I thank-you for intrusting your horse blanket cleaning and repair needs to us.

They glisten in the sun and neigh in the night. ”
