    I wonder what ever happened to Starlight? I bred a mare to him years ago via frozen and was unsuccessful (I don't blame the semen OP) then basically gave up. I know he was sold at the Oldenburg...

    You should see if there is a dealer in your neck of the woods. The company is about 45 minutes from my barn. I came home one day to find they had left me a free sample and a business card in my...

    Is it the chopped, bagged flax? I tried it. Not a fan. While it absorbed well and was in fact dust free I actually found it very slippery. I almost slipped and fell several times (perhaps I am...

    I haul a lot in the winter too; I actually feel better on the snow covered back roads than the highway, traction on snow packed roads is not horrible, on the highway there is always the potential for...
