A good read for all us horse owners!

Weโ€™ve received several questions regarding blanketing horses in cold climates. A healthy horse will continue to develop a natural winter coat until December 22 (Winter Solstice), as the days become shorter and temperatures become colder. Horses begin to lose their winter coat (and start forming their summer coat) as the days become longer (starting December 23) and temperatures start to warm (slowly). Blanketing before December 22 will decrease a horse's natural winter coat. The horseโ€™s hair coat is an excellent insulator and works by trapping and warming air. A healthy horse with a thick, dry and clean hair coat can retain enough heat and be comfortable outside in cold climates.

I often try to convey this to my riders when they say their horse or pony is being โ€œbadโ€. Maybe the horse is being pokey or a little quick. Maybe the rider is making mistakes and the horse doesnโ€™t understand whatโ€™s being asked. Rarely have I seen a horse be outright bad. It is something magical that these animals not only let us ride them, but so often take care of us as their riders.

Secretariat's Last Footage - Last Video Taken Of The Special Horse

One of the greatest......

The video was shot by Bill Lamb as he was driving by the farm where Secretariat was living. The video turned out to be some of the last video taken of this special horse and this was a day or two before Secretariat was put down. The TV station Bill worked for, turned the video into a wonderful story

So true!

Shenandoah Shepherd Rescue

Shenandoah Shepherd Rescue

As most of you are hopefully aware, there is a pretty serious hurricane heading toward the Carolinas and Virginia this week.

This one has the potential to be a doozy and it's important to be prepared and have a plan in case the dog poop hits the fan!

Here are some hurricane tips:
1. Have somewhere you can evacuate to if need be and make sure ALL of your animals can come with, or will otherwise be taken care of.
2. Keep a list of all the things you would need to bring with you during an evacuation. This includes essential medications (for you and your furry ones), important paperwork and irreplaceable items such as family heirlooms.
3. Stock up on gas, water, non-perishables and candles/flashlights to last at least several days.
4. Ensure you have a way of charging your phone so you have a method of communication with family and friends.
5. Grab your alcoholic beverage of choice, some board games and safely wait out the storm!

We are wishing good luck to everyone in the path of the hurricane! Stay safe!

Some good advise

"Only way that horses win is if you sit there and spend time with 'em. Show 'em that you're tryin' to help 'em. Love 'em. Talk to 'em. Get to know 'em. That's what you gotta do. You love 'em and they'll love you, too. People might call me crazy, but that's the way it is. I been on the racetrack 34 years, and I ain't never gonna give up. I think they'll take me to my grave with a pitchfork in my hand and a rub rag in my back pocket."

Secretariat and his beloved groom Mr. Eddie Sweat.
