Rain and Floods

Let me say right away that our farm is not in a state of emergency and all is well. However, Tennessee has been declared in a state of emergency due to seriously heavy rainfall and flooding, with the brunt of this happening in the middle and eastern part of the state.

The Picky Eater

When we meet new residents, it is surprising how often their owners tell us that their horse is a picky eater. The picky eaters tend to fall into two categories with the first one being the horses that will eat well for awhile until one day they don’t. So their stressed owner does what I call the “feeding gymnastics.” They change their horse’s feed, they remove or change the supplements, they treat the horse for ulcers, often all of the above.
