Winter is upon us, a foot of snow and temperatures in the 20's!  Be sure your horse has water available at all times.  Heated buckets or tank heaters keep water thawed and even a little warm encouraging horses to drink enough and avoid dehydration.

And of course this is the best time to have barefoot horses, snow doesn't stick to bare hooves!  It can compact in shoes causing big snowballs creating all kinds of hazards for your horse.
Happy New Year to one and all.  I had a great year in 2011, meeting new clients and their wonderful horses.  Here's looking to an even better 2012. 

My thoughts for this blog are to post tidbits of subjects that might be helpful to you.  Please feel free to comment on what you might like to see.  Information on laminitis, equine diet, thrush... the possibilities are endless.  I will be working on my photo gallery in the near futurel as well.
