    French link driving bit

    Hello! Yes, in most cases a french link is more comfortable to a horse. A single jointed snaffle can tend to have what is called the "nut cracker" effect in a horses mouth because when you pull the reigns either to stop or turn the center callapses causing the center to fold and hit the top of...

    Chifney Bit

    A chifney is very common among Thoroughbred farms, there is nothing wrong with using a chifney as long as it is used correctly. It is actually a great safety device for any handler dealing with a hard to handle horse. With most horses you have more control if you have a bit in the horses mouth...

    Please HELP ... I need advice

    Strategy Healthy Edge

    We switched all of our little ones from regular Strategy over to the new healthy edge for 30 days......I was excited to try it, but was not happy with the results. I noticed a big difference in their top line when I fed this feed, we actually had to double their beet pulp to keep a nice top...

Most of the feed stores around KY carry chopped and bagged hay in a variety of choices ranging from $9-15 bucks a bag (50lbs)...

    Embryo Transfer with minis and shetlands

    I was just curious as to if embryo transfers were allowed when breeding minis and shetlands. I know it is a very popular way of breeding in other breeds, and was curious as to if anyone had pursued this with their minis or shetlands. If so, do you feel it was safe and were the foals eligible for...

    Measuring... heard talk of a new proposal...

    At first glance I personally thought this would be a great idea. However, with that being said I slept on it an now agree with your post and feel I would be against the rule change. With our current measurement practice of measuring by the last hairs on the mane, it gives an actual point of...
