This is like the First Aid book you always should have in your medicine cupboard ... but for horses. And it’s not so much a first aid book but a reference for the large and small scale rescue that might come before the First Aid. In any case I think it is ESSENTIAL for EVERY SINGLE HORSE OWNER.
If for no other reason than to give you a clue about the trouble your horse can get himself into; it might also minimise your shock and allow you respond farm more efficiently and calmly.

I can see that there will be a certain faction of the horse establishment that will have a problem with this book because it really delves into the arenas of new age, eastern philosophy, psychology and emotion. However, if you can in any way keep a fraction of an open mind, then you might just find there is something to be gained.
I heard someone say recently that horses spend their time together doing two things: Horses spend time together doing nothing Horses spend time together doing something
The Zen Connection With Horses covers both those things.

From going through a really mild start to the year Melbourne has suddenly plunged into chilly weather and if you’re like me, you’ve found yourself scrambling for warmer rugs for your horses. Caribu comes to the rescue!
We road tested two winter rugs this time round; the Caribu Alpine 1200 Denier Winter Combo and the Caribu Lined Canvas Rug.
Caribu Alpine 1200 Denier Winter Combo The Caribu Alpine 1200 Denier Winter Combo is a fantastic waterproof turnout for the long cold winter months.

I’ve recently been in dire need of new boots. Melbourne has had more rain this winter than we’ve seen over the previous 15 winters and last year I gave away my gumboots because I just never used them. Then came the two inches of mud.
As horse owners rain and mud should be our best friend.
Except when your comfiest-ever-well-loved-and-worn boots of the last four years are so well loved they have sizable holes in them.

While Horse themed Apps in the Games / Entertainment Genres are exploding in number on an almost daily basis there are still very few practical apps to assist horse owners in their day to day management of their stables or herds. Horse Medical Agenda is one of the more useful and productive apps on the market.
Picture slide shows, pony games, racing games ... if it’s entertainment to do with horses you can get it for IPad, IPhone or Android.

With summer just around the corner it’s time to start thinking about some insect control for our horses. Personally speaking, my preference is always for natural products so Heritage Downs Bug Spray and Bugz Off Cream were a welcome choice to trial here at the farm.
Our two major insect problems at my place are flies and mosquitoes. Flies we mostly control using traps though that doesn’t get all of them so the horses still need protection. Mosquitoes are another issue altogether. Especially has it has been hot and humid recently.

Animal health is very important to horse owners and so too is being environmentally conscious. Good air quality is essential for minimizing respiratory health problem’s, this starts with a good ventilation system that also helps protect the horse barn structure from moisture damage by reducing condensation. Using the Solar Whiz Solar powered high volume fan/s, will allow Mother Nature to control this air quality cost free, every day.

The Caribu Lined Canvas Rug offers a good alternative to synthetic turnouts for keeping a horse warm this winter and I have to say that it is possibly one of the best fitting canvas rugs I have come across in twelve years of rugging horses!
HorseYard trialled a Caribu Canvas rug two years ago and it is still going strong! So much so We’ll be using the same rug again this winter!
Caribu has used a 20oz 100% Cotton canvas this season, chosen because it is the “best balance between insulation/waterproofing/weight.”
