219 violations of Horse Protection Act found at walking horse show

The practice of soaring is deplorable and the fact that these people are allowed to even bring these poor horses to "shows" is sickening.  When will they put a stop to this?

Happy Ending after much suffering

On August 3 in Miami the SFSPCA picked up this emaciated Thoroughbred mare along with 2 others that were living in squalor.  As you can see by the picture below, that was their make-shift home, the ceiling not even tall enough for them to raise their heads.  When the original breeder of this mare, (who goes by the name Silver and Smoke) Denzel Brendemuehl found out that the SFSPCA had rescued this horse, Denzel contact the organization immediately telling them they would take the mare back.  According to founder Laurie Waggoner, this is the first time in over 20 years that the original breeder/owner has ever stepped up to the plate to come and get the horse that they bred.  Hats off to Denzel and lets hope that Silver and Smoke will live out the remainder of her life a happy and healthy horse!

Beware of the Blister Beetle in your Alfalfa Hay

This little guy may not look like much, but apparently he packs a nasty punch!  Just recently someone reported finding remnants of this tiny creature in some alfalfa hay they just purchased in Brevard County, FL.  This beetle is found only in Alfalfa or Alfalfa mixture of hays.  I do not personally feed any hay with alfalfa in it, although each hay has its own set of issues from time to time so being diligent no matter what type of hay you buy is a good cautionary thing to do.  I found this great article from the University of Kentucky giving great insight to this culprit:  www2.ca.uky.edu/entomology/entfacts/ef102.asp.  It is a great bit of information for all of us who own horses!
