Saddle Up, for a Year Round Approach

There’s one thing in common between every animal, and every human I’ve ever been around in my lifetime; we all like to eat. Not just eat, but eat good food, that’s good for us. I’m trying to justify how Hershey bars is good for more than just my mental well-being, but that’s another topic.

If you’re a horse owner, then you know horses are pretty selective eaters. They will graze one part of a pasture, and skip over other areas. They simply know it’s not good, nor good for them, so they leave it alone. If your horses are eating everything down to the ground, then you may have a host of issues we can talk about.

Either way, if you have horses and want to learn the latest research based information from our MSU Extension Forage Specialist, here’s your chance.

We’ll have a program to address a year round approach to having, and MAINTAINING, the highest quality forage possible for your horses. So please put on your calendar, i-phone, i-pad, or any other device they have these days, but join us on July, 26th at the Winston County Extension office, and the farm of Quay Eaves directly across from the Extension office.

The program is free, but call and let us know you’ll be there, so we’ll have enough hand-outs and refreshments for you. Our number is, 662-773-3091.
