EquiLume Performance Lighting helps breeders meet industry-imposed foal birth dates by increasing the hours of light a horse is exposed to daily. It is widely understood that providing longer day-length for approximately 90 days beginning on the fifteenth of November (Northern Hemisphere) acts to reduce the production of the hormone melatonin and stimulates the mare’s reproductive system to activate earlier in the year. Therefore, foals of the same official age can be produced that are older in actual age and have a competitive advantage. The EquiLume Light Mask provides mobile, precision blue light therapy on an automatic timer, and is powered to last an en-tire breeding season. It contains a light sensor such that the blue light will only stay on for 30 sec once activated until environmental light levels drop at dusk. When low light is detected the blue light will come on for the remainder of the 7-hour active period. If initially activated at 4 pm (16:00) on the first day of light therapy, the light mask will automatically switch off seven hours later at 11 pm (23:00) every night. The long-life battery has been customized for horses and all weather conditions.
