Tip of the Week



In seeking SAFETY in a barn you should run through this checklist and modify according to the greatest safety prevention for your facility:

1) Tools such as Pitchforks, Manure Rakes, Brooms, Shovels should all have their proper place out of the aisleways-tack or grooming areas and stalls. A safe and secure place located securely on a wall that is not in the daily traffic flow or in any walkway that supports the traffic of horses or people!

2) Fire Extinquishers that are up to date on servicing and that are conveniently located in easy to access spots. Nothing worse than having an electrical or container fire, and no one knowing where the extinquishers are located.

3) Hoses kept in convenient locations, and kept coiled on hose spools to prevent a leg or foot or person from tripping and getting caught up in them.

Breed of the Week


The English Sporthorse
The Cleveland Bay is the oldest established breed of English Horse.

In 1884, the Cleveland Bay Horse Society of Great Britain published the first volume of its Stud Book containing stallions and mares scrupulously selected for purity of blood, many of whose pedigrees traced back over a century. Since that date, the breed has been maintained free of outcrosses. In consequence, Cleveland Bays stamp their get with remarkable uniformity of size, conformation, soundness, stamina, disposition and color.

The Cleveland Bay is unique in its carefully maintained purity. While the warmbloods of France, Germany, Sweden, Poland, Hungary and other European countries have produced a number of good individuals, their pedigrees are riddled with recent Thoroughbred, Arabian and other outcrosses.
