Clouds Encore - A Pryor Surprise!

Cloud's Encore - A Pryor Surprise!

by Ginger Kathrens
Since the day of his birth, May 29, 1995, I have documented Cloud's life - and what a life it has been. Now, after nearly 18 years, Cloud has fathered a foal who looks like him! On May 6, 2013, we watched Encore take her first steps. It is my dearest wish that she and her brother will grow up and live out their lives in this wonderful, albeit challenging, wilderness.

Nitrates in Hay Exposed

Nitrates in Hay Exposed

by Monique Warren
The amount of nitrates can reach toxic levels in forages anytime the nitrogen supply in the soil exceeds the nitrogen needs of the plant, such as with over-fertilization or environmental stress. We can't see, smell, or taste nitrates, so they can lurk in the prettiest, greenest, best-smelling bale of hay and cause serious health problems for our horses.
