“Cutting” Tails

I hope I’m not opening a can of worms here.  I know this can be a controversial issue in non-saddleseat breeds and, of course, non-horse owners.  I have to admit, up until a few days ago when I took some time to research the issue I wasn’t quite sure how I felt about it. When…

Beer for my Horses

It’s a popular country song which inspired a movie.  It may also be a good home remedy, according to this article (I particularly like the picture and the Irish Sport Horse who required a Guiness), for horses who have stopped sweating.  The dog days of summer may be wrapping up, but there’s still some room…

Unwanted Horse Coalition

The focus of this blog is not to spread the word on Morgan rescues, but in light of the current discussion an organization that has recently come to my attention is the Unwanted Horse Coalition.  Along with Forever Morgans and AC4H this could be a good resource for placing these horses.  Also, UHC is sponsoring…

Financial Planning for Equine Professionals

Maturation Rates on Horses – Interesting Article

I had a friend send me the link to this article months ago and I never got around to reading it until today. It’s long and doesn’t focus specifically on Morgans, and I’m only about half way through it, but so far it’s definitely worth the read! Fortunately I don’t think the culture in Morgans…

Insuring Horses

Hey guys, I’m curious what your opinions are on insuring your horses?  I have 3 here at home, 2 of which I own.  None of them are high dollar horses.  That being the case, I currently just have them declared in my home-owners insurance policy.  This is the way I’ve always done it in the…
