Thought 4the day: Life can be pretty hard at times for all concerned. Jobs, family, relationships anything can happen. It can mean that some might not be able to cope with their four legged friend. Its never a light decision to part with them. Its literally heart breaking. Its then the unknown of where, how, who, the what ifs etc as to who will take on your friend. Life can be so unfair. We have a...nd do take in these horses we can give them a suitable home (if they can be rehomed) with a safety blanket of us to come back to if anything goes wrong. We don't sell them and never would as what would be the point of selling them? They come to us for help four legged and two to simply sell? Never! We couldn't then watch them or keep an eye on them and then they have the right to sell them on. Never going to happen. Its something we all feel very strongly about. We are here for the horses and here we will be. Its our life and our life we love.
Fact4 the day: Digestive system
Horses and other Equids evolved as grazing animals, adapted to eating small amounts of the same kind of food all day long. In the wild, the horse adapted to eating prairie grasses in semi-arid regions and traveling significant distances each day in order to obtain adequate nutrition. Therefore, the digestive system of a horse is about 100 feet (30 m) long, and most of this is intestines.
