A healthy mind is just about as important as a healthy body, for both humans and horses alike. For better or for worse, our horses depend on us for their happiness and their health. In this year’s Health and Nutrition Guide, we have features on how to take care of the horse’s body, to help ease a stressful caretaker's mind. If you’re considering getting a rescue, we suggest that you take a look at “Second Chances.” Kelley Roche shares the stories of four horses who were saved by patient rescuers. Mosquitoes can be tough to fend off, especially during the humid summer months we tend to face in the Northeast. Kandace York’s “Mosquitoes in the Mist” supplies information on the damage of these pests and how to keep them at bay. Like children, each horse develops differently as they age. By taking tips from Kathleen Labonville’s “Equine Timeline,” horse owners can keep their four-legged friends on the right track.
