EQStable™ board offers inspiration and interaction for horse lovers

Madison, NJ, May 10, 2013 — Zoetis announces the launch of its EQStable™ board on Pinterest®, providing equine enthusiasts across the country with inspiration and an easy way to save favorite horse images and ideas.

Having already created a community of more than 107,000 members (likes) who have commented more than 13,000 times on its EQStable page on Facebook®, Zoetis extends its social media outreach to Pinterest’s expanding base of more than 31 million users.

“With the extreme growth of Pinterest, we felt it was important to establish an EQStable presence on the site so we can reach horse owners, horse lovers and our customers where they are,” said Stuart Meikle, marketing director, U.S. Cattle and Equine Marketing, Zoetis. “The visual nature of Pinterest makes it an ideal platform to showcase the beauty of horses. We’re excited to be in this new space and look forward to interacting with horse people on a new level.”

The EQStable boards include stunning horse images in several categories: Horse Laughs, Horse Friendships, Stunning Horse Photos, Equine Care & Wellness and Riding. By incorporating the humor, beauty and care of equines, the EQStable boards represent all the different aspects people love about horses. 

“Pinterest offers us the unique opportunity to showcase the love that Zoetis Equine has for this industry and to engage with others who share a passion for horses,” said Wendy Irvine, senior marketing communications manager, Zoetis. “We hope people enjoy the EQStable page and will use the boards as inspiration for their equine lifestyle.”

The EQStable board features its own uploads as well as repins from other Pinterest users that include the community members from the EQStable page on Facebook. Boards are continuously updated with new designs and content, so visitors will have an ongoing source of new images to explore.
