Happy Thanksgiving from our farm to yours!

Holidays can be a wonderful time for rest, relaxation, and time with family and friends.  But if you have horses, it can sometimes seem like any other day!  As you know, the horses don’t know it’s a holiday, they expect to be fed on time, and you need to clean stalls, sweep the aisle, get the turnouts done, etc. all before you need to be at your mother’s house by 3pm for a meal.  For us at the research farm, we are especially busy tomorrow because we have a large research project we need to finish before the weather gets really cold.  So, it’s all hands on deck this Turkey Day as our dedicated and passionate crew take care of the regular farm duties while also measuring hay, grain, water and supplement intake twice per day for our horses on specific trials.  But overall, it is not that bad.  After all, Thanksgiving is about remembering what we are grateful for and working with horses on a daily basis certainly tops our list.  We are grateful that we have the ability to know these great animals and develop products to support their health and well-being.  So Happy Thanksgiving from our working farm to yours, may you get your chores done in time to eat plenty of turkey!
