Reasons for Sudden Death in Horses
16th Aug 2014   |   General   |   Winniefield Park

Why Horses Cant Barf or Burp
13th Aug 2014   |   General   |   Winniefield Park
So we’ve been told that horses can’t barf or burp. But why? The first part of the horse’s digestive system is similar to ours. We have teeth to chew food, we get it into a manageable lump and then we send it down our esophagus tube to the stomach. Behind the area we call the “Ada ...

Backyard Breeders Blamed For Spike In Equine Population
6th Aug 2014   |   General   |   Winniefield Park
After the economic downturn a few years ago, and laws being put in place to prevent meat processing plants from slaughtering horses, the problem of what to do with unwanted horses came to the forefront. Many argued, and rightly so in my opinion, that the problem isn't what to do ...

To Breed or Not to Breed
2nd Aug 2014   |   General   |   Winniefield Park

Mystery Pony Painting Remains Unsolved
9th Jul 2014   |   General   |   Winniefield Park
There is no artist's signature on the print. The frame is old and battered, and I rather like it that way. I have it hung in the hall, out of any direct light, so that it doesn’t fade any further, but it’s still visible from where I often sit to write in my room. I’m fussy about ...

Misleading Horse Words and Phrases
21st Jun 2014   |   General   |   Winniefield Park
