Who's JEB?

Growing up on a small Belgian farm in upstate New York, there were many things I looked forward to each year with the horses: logging, trail rides, wagon rides and hooking up the sleigh in the winter.  However, there was one time of the year that was most exciting- foaling season.  As I grew older (and started paying attention to more things), I realized if we had had a stud colt born that year, there was talk of “Jeb”. For the longest time, my younger self always thought that it was a possible name for our foal. But that was definitely not the case. From there, I found out that it was a deadly condition, and the intention was to minimize it, if not erase it, from the Belgian bloodline. But that is where my knowledge ended, so recently I did some digging…

The Most Important Routine
Some time ago I was in a grocery store during a big thunderstorm. The lady in front of me at the cash register line was nervously patting her toddler while saying “don’t be afraid” over and over. I’m sure her intention was to reassure the child (or maybe herself). I’m also sure that the youngster got the message loud and clear that thunderstorms were something scary because they made mom really jumpy and anxious.

Caring for Skin During Winter

The cold, dry air in winter leads to a major cause of delayed healing, which is the dehydration of exposed tissue. A moist environment is important for cells to migrate across the wound and for white cells to do their work cleaning up the wound. Suturing wounds that warrant it, and keeping other wounds covered with a protective salve, will guard against dehydration.

How to Find Time to Ride
For many of us finding time to ride is a constant battle. The daily grind of earning a living, taking care of family and household are a constant cycle. Even those who train horses for a living, often struggle to find time to ride their own mounts. And for the riding instructor, their own needs usually come second to those of their clients.For many of us finding time to ride is a constant battle.
