Winter Warm Up And Cool Down
During winter our bodies and muscles, as well as our horses', are naturally colder so it's important to give your horse a lot of time to warm up, gradually increasing their body temperature.

A few weeks ago, we decided to start an experiment with hoof dressings. We had seen a lot about how no topical treatments should be used on hooves and, if anything, water could be used in the dry months to keep the hoof moist. This is because great hoof growth comes from within and is dependent on a good diet, this we absolutely will not dispute! But while great hoof growth comes from within, is there anything we can do from the outside to help keep our horses’ feet healthy? We believe that the answer is yes after our experiment. We used one
