The latest issue of TMH has some thought-provoking features.    In particular, Steve Kinney talked about the coming dearth of young horses due to the tremendous drop in registration/births stemming from breeding farm’s decisions not to produce during the economic recession several years ago. He talks about the problems stemming from those past decisions, including the…
