Some Thoughts on Feeding

Supplementing your horses feeding program can be confusing at best, and downright intimidating at worst. What, other than hay, does my horse need? How much is too much? How much is not enough? Wouldn’t it be nice if you could provide an efficient, healthy program, and do so without wasting money and time? Perhaps you can.

Wow, can I afford Renew Gold™?

Seems like a lot, so let’s clear up a few misconceptions regarding just what it costs to feed Renew Gold, and how the price affects your feeding program.

As more horse owners gain understanding about nutrition in the human body, there are always those who would consider the value of applying that new understanding to the horse. There are times when this is a good thing. I feel that, where the value of Omega 6 and Omega 3 essential fatty acids is concerned, this may be one of those times.

Feeding the Horsemen's Re-Union Colts

The 2014 Horsemen’s Re-Union event in Paso Robles gave horse enthusiasts an opportunity to watch some of the world’s best horsemen and horsewomen take a two year old and a three year old horse from the halter to a comfortable start under saddle in six days.
