    Tick protection

    Hi, I haven't been on here in ages!! I am so glad to see the forum is still thriving! I have a question: What does everyone use for a tick deterrent? I have 15 minis and wonder if the Equi-Spot that is made for big horses would be ok for the minis. Or any other ideas that work! Thank you!!

    Nutrena Feeds, a good choice?

    Thank you all so much for your advice and opinions! My feed dealer thinks I should try the Triumph line. Maybe I should ask about the Safe Choice line.

    Nutrena Feeds, a good choice?

    I have been feeding Agway Superior 12% to my minis for years and years and I have never had any issues. They look good, and are happy year round. Well, Agway just discontinued this line and will now carry Nutrena Feeds. I would like others' opinions on whether I should switch or travel farther...

    Rhonda, Maybe you could email AMHA and let them know you haven't received any issues. They are very prompt at replying. Could be they got the address listed wrong.....

    Silver Buckskin

    My mare is a silver buckskin pinto. This was taken 10 days after her clip. I have a lot of compliments on her color. I love every variation of the buckskin colors. The silver gene will add bi-colored hooves or some say striped.
