here’s What makes triple croWn senior better than the leading brand.
Better quality fiber in a fixed formula. Shredded beet pulp is the primary fiber source on an ingredient list where each item is listed instead of hidden within generic terminology like “forage or roughage products.” Guaranteeing 10% fat. Almost twice that of the competition. Use of digestive enhancements. Yeast cultures, Probiotics, Organic minerals (including organic selenium), aid in protection from pathogenic bacteria and mycotoxins. Also provides an improved Omega-3 fatty acid profile with the addition of flaxseed. Low soluble carbohydrates. Average of 11.7% NSC as measured by Equi-Analytical Labs.
Distribution is continually expanding and now includes most of the United States and parts of Canada. For more information on Triple Crown products and for dealers near you, call 800-451-9916 or go to www.triplecrownfeed.com.

I am somewhat involved with QH racing in Florida so I can answer your questions on that plus your veterinary question. The way the rules for accreditation are set up in Florida with the Florida Quarter Horse Racing Association, you can bring that mare to Florida to have her foal and as long as you breed her back to an Hi Doc, accredited I bought a real nice Florida stallion, the mare off the track this foal she is year. She is a grade 2 carrying can be stakes winner and in foal to a very an accredited good stallion. I had heard quarter Florida bred. horse racing was about to take off Then the foal that she has in 2012 can in Florida and that you were be born in Georgia at your involved so I thought you might farm. As long as you do be the person to ask. I live in the paperwork and pay the Georgia. appropriate fees, both babies will I really want to get involved be accredited Florida breds. You in a state bred program but I don’t will then be eligible for breeders like the idea of boarding my mare awards when the babies race in in another state for a variety of 2013, 2014 and after. If you reasons and Georgia doesn’t have happen to still own the babies then you will also be eligible for horse racing even though I did accredited Florida bred owners hear that our governmental awards every time they race. If leadership may be seeing how you decide to sell the baby in a many jobs a breeding industry can sale, you should receive more create and we may have a decent money for it because it is an shot at getting QH racing in accredited Florida breds. Georgia. Some of the races written are also “Florida Bred preferred” In the meantime, I would which helps make sure you get to like the foal this mare is carrying enter the races. Of course even to be an accredited Florida bred. I though having n accredited Florida bred makes it easier to get have one other question. Since I into races, you don’t want to hurt have been keeping my mares in your horse by racing it too often. other states and have not done that Some people might be tempted to enter their horses back week after before, what is the best way to week. That is bad for the horse make sure everything goes right and they don’t usually perform with the foaling. very well anyway so there is really no need to do it. For the
Page 20 • SHC • March 2011
safety of the horse you really want to wait about 14 days plus or minus to race him again. If the horse is closely monitored and checked out very well in special circumstances, it may be ok to shorten that time span some but not on a consistent basis. That answer may have been more than you wanted but I think that covers it. For question number two, the very best way to make sure everything goes well with the foaling is to let the mare have her baby with an equine professional that is very experienced in foaling and neonatal care. Most of the time in your area, that is going to involve taking your mare to an equine reproductive center and letting her foal there. Most reproductive centers have foal alarms that are sutured in to the mare’s vulva. When the mare starts to have her baby, it trips an alarm that calls the veterinarian’s phone so that he/she can be there for the birth in case something goes wrong. Most of the time equine births are uneventful but when there is trouble, there is usually lots of it. Many times someone being there to clear the nasal passages or to give the mare a little help getting the baby out prevents a lot of problems and expense. Good luck with your mare and foal. I hope you have a winner in a couple of years

“Offers in Compromise” Policy of IRS
here are many websites and radio advertisements that offer services to help “compromise” IRS tax bills. Many of these offers make dubious claims, and can entail upfront costs that exceed the results produced. Some of these promoters advertise that they can settle your tax debt for “pennies on the dollar,” which is a false and misleading claim. If you receive a tax bill from the IRS-after an audit, for example, or if you have entered into an agreement to settle a tax dispute with the auditor, IRS Appeals or the u.S. Tax Court, it is still possible to further compromise the amount due. This can be accomplished through the IRS Offers in Compromise procedure. If a large amount is at stake, it is advisable to have a tax attorney assist you. The IRS will entertain an offer in compromise, in which you offer to pay a negotiated percentage of the amount that the IRS claims is due, if one of two grounds exist: (1) There is some doubt as to collectibility because of some type of economic hardship, e.g., the taxpayer does not earn enough money to pay the bill; or (2) there is some doubt as to liability, for instance, there are some legal issues outstanding. A compromise enables the taxpayer to pay less than the total tax liability due. The compromise is sometimes to the advantage of the IRS because this enables the Government to avoid the expenses and troubles of collection or litigation. During an audit the revenue agent will not normally initiate a discussion about compromise. However, it is always permissible to initiate a conversation about entertaining an offer in compromise with a revenue agent towards the end of an audit. I usually initiate the discussion once I have facts that will support a compromise (such as legal points concerning doubt as to liability). However, often revenue agents are more interested in assessing the full amount rather than entertaining a compromise, so that it is necessary to await the tax bill and then file a formal Offer
in Compromise claim (see below). Many times the basis for a compromise is doubt about the liability rather than inability to pay. Most of the compromises I have handled involve taxpayers who believe they have been unfairly assessed more than their fair due of taxes. There is no requirement that the taxpayer be insolvent in order to compromise taxes; however, incapacity to pay may also form the basis of a compromise. The most common basis for a compromise is that collection of the tax would create economic hardship, or exceptional circumstances exist. Compromises are also available in situations of possible criminal liability or fraud. The Attorney General’s office must approve any compromise of criminal cases. Specific penalties are also susceptible to compromise. Sometimes the compromise involves an agreement for the Government to discharge its tax lien. This is a crucial element. A compromise offer must be submitted on Form 656, “Offer in Compromise.” Sometimes the compromise may include an installment payment agreement. The IRS recognizes that individuals need funds to provide for basic living expenses. If the offer of compromise is based in inability to pay, a financial statement on Form 433A must accompany the offer. This lists your living expenses. The IRS will consider your assets, your future income, the amount collectible from third parties, and assets or income that are outside the Page 28 • SHC • March 2011
country. The most favorable terms for a compromise involve an agreement to pay the compromised amount in five or fewer monthly installments. (This is called a “lump sum cash offer.”) Expedited processing can be requested if the taxpayer has a need to resolve a tax liability by a specific date. This sometimes is needed if the taxpayer has a pending business transaction that requires him or her, as a condition to the transaction, to resolve a tax liability. Larger settlements (in excess of $50,000) must be approved by the Chief Counsel of the IRS. The IRS can later set aside a compromise if false information or documentation was supplied with the offer, or if the taxpayer concealed assets or the ability to pay. The compromise must be accepted by authorized officials in order to become binding. An attempted informal settlement by a nonauthorized official is not binding on the Government. The compromise is considered accepted when the IRS issues a written notification of acceptance.
