Whole Horse Basics


Whole Horse Basics 

Okay, okay,  I know,  this is a Dog blog, what is an announcement about horses doing here? 

I, like many of our readers have had or have horses as well as dogs.  OR threre may be some of you out there that have recently moved to the country and can finally have a horse like you have always wanted but now are wondering if there is a “Natural” way to care for them?
