Something we practiced in Europe and still do now. So efficient when you send more than one out and you're it. Especially when it's 20 farenheight

Who's done this in the past??

I remember this technique with my first pony Dave the Rave 😁 worked a treat 👌

Each horse had-

1 x new Zealand rug
1 x jute rug
And a string vest sweat rug

And they all survived 🙊🤷‍♀️

Makes me realise how much the equine market has developed and how good the marketing is to make us feel we need 100 rugs for every occasion! 🙈😱

DID YOU KNOW?

Alfalfa tends to be more nutrient-dense than most grasses when harvested at the same stage of maturity, and it's a very efficient source of protein and calcium -- which leads many people to believe that alfalfa is the best hay to feed in winter for warmth, due to the metabolic heat that your horse generates to metabolize the extra protein.

If you're feeding alfalfa this winter, even hay that has been harvested months or years previously, you need to be aware that your horse could be at risk for potentially deadly blister beetle toxicity.

"The blister beetle (Epicauta) is highly toxic to sheep and cattle, but primarily to horses," says Dr. Benjamin Espy. "As little as four (4) to six (6) grams of blister beetles can be deadly to a 1100-pound horse. Blister beetles swarm in alfalfa fields and are drawn into bales by accident. Even small parts of these beetles are toxic to a horse, and whole insects need not be present to be dangerous."

If you suspect your horse is showing signs of toxicity, call your veterinarian immediately. While there is no antidote for cantharidin, the toxin found in blister beetles, your veterinarian may still be able to save your horse by providing supportive care to combat dehydration, help evacuate toxins from the gastrointestinal tract, and delay potential absorption.

Check alfalfa for the presence of blister beetle prior to feeding and consult your #horsedoctor to learn more about this very dangerous condition, especially if you feed alfalfa hay from a new or unknown harvesting source. Please note that there are many representatives of the species Epicauta, so we encourage you to contact a county agricultural agent to familiarize yourself with the poisonous beetles in our area or the geographical region where the hay you purchase is harvested.

You can read Dr. Espy's article on blister beetle poisoning in full on our website at https://aaep.org/horsehealth/blister-beetle-poisoning

Samuel Leroy Jackson was born on December 21, 1948 in Washington, D.C. He was raised in Chattanooga, Tennessee by his grandmother. Jackson graduated from Morehouse College in 1972 and performed skits about racial inequality with a theatre company. He moved to New York City where his friendship with Spike Lee helped him land his first movie gigs. In 1994, he had landed a role in the cult hit, Pulp Fiction. By the age of 63, he had appeared in more than 100 films, and in 2011 he was named the highest grossing actor of all time with his movies grossing more than $7.2 billion.

MHAA Announces New Conservation and Preservation Fund!

The Mosby Heritage Area Association is pleased to announce that a partnership with the Bondi family of Old Welbourne has been established to promote protecting important battlefield property in permanent easement. “The Bondi Family Land Conservation and Battlefield Preservation Fund” will be available to landowners within the Unison Battlefield Study Area who are considering protecting their land with a permanent conservation easement. The fund is designated to assist landowners with transaction costs, including stewardship, legal, and surveyor fees and the Bondi family has pledged to replenish the fund annually in perpetuity.

The Mosby Heritage Area Association has been intensifying preservation efforts by advocating for conservation easements across the Heritage Area, but especially within the Civil War battlefields, as they mark an enormous moment in our collective history. In 2014, MHAA was awarded an American Battlefield Preservation Plan grant to draw up a plan to protect the “Prelude to Gettysburg” cavalry battlefields of June 1863 that raged along the Ashby’s Gap Turnpike, today’s Route 50. Since that time, MHAA has assisted in placing part of the Battle of Upperville, “Vineyard Hill”, under easement with the Land Trust of Virginia. This year MHAA facilitated the protection of over 200 acres in the Unison Battlefield which included contributions to each landowner to help offset their financial burden. The success of this assistance illustrated the need to develop such a fund and the Bondi family graciously stepped forward.

This easement effort within MHAA’s Preservation Committee is being spearheaded by Ashton Cole, who is also the Director of Conservation and Stewardship with the Land Trust of Virginia, and MHAA Chairman C. Dulany Morison. “We believe this fund will prove to be a convincing resource in our discussions with landowners considering conservation easements and we are very grateful to the Bondi family“ says Morison. This easement initiative focuses on Civil War battlefield property, but MHAA remains committed to preserving the entire landscape of the Heritage Area to protect our viewsheds and vast historical resources. Conservation easements are the best protection against invasive development in rural areas and they remove further potential strain on Loudoun’s infrastructure, as well as protect the county's thriving tourism industry.

The last day of Cubbing for the OCH was thoroughly enjoyed by these three and their riders along with many guests from Loudoun-Fairfax and friends from PA. Minor emergency when Reg lost his good horn causing a rather lengthy check, otherwise a rock and roller! Pictured in order Carters Run, Jupiter’s Elara and Late for Church. These 3 can be seen in formal wear all gussied up for Saturdays Open Meet for the 2019-20 season😍

You know it's been a good day when your 11 year old daughter and pony come home like this! Cantering over The Henbury Estate in Cheshire when her pony Seren stumbled in a wet patch of the field, sending both Charlotte and himself head first into the mud. Pony and Child absolutely fine! Thanks for the photo Michael. Charlotte Caulfield you are awesome!

Capacity turnout for the inaugural ride for the OCH conservation foundation. Without groups like this we could not foxhunt, not hack cross country and would only be able to look at rows and rows of cracker box houses as developers are drooling like rabid dogs to get these open lands.

Now I understand why one of the first stables I had lessons was named what it was... Aspinwall

Nan Aspinwall was the first woman to ride horseback across North America alone, covering 4496 miles and taking 180 days in the saddle. She departed from San Francisco on September 1, 1910 and arrived in New York on July 8, 1911 with her Thoroughbred mare, Lady Ellen.

These two Bowler Hill homebreds have done an amazing job so far being introduced to hounds and a bit of staff hunting . Yesterday on a lovely hack on an owners amazing farm we had a very close encounter with a large freight train. Carters Run and Late for Church had amazingly minimal reaction to being about 15’ from the tracks ! So they are now train broke😳. Saturday is our opening cubbing season and though they have been superstars we will not blow their minds with a very large, very social field and wait for a nice Monday introduction to the real thing
