Buying The Perfect Pony
8th Sep 2018   |   General   |   Winniefield Park
Pity the poor parent, not already in the horse world, that wants to buy their child a pony. A good number will just go buy the first pony they come across, perhaps one that’s been languishing in someone’s cow pasture for several years, and turn their kids loose with it. ...

Buy or Adopt A Horse
10th Aug 2018   |   General   |   Winniefield Park
A popular slogan amongst pet rescue groups is adopt, don’t shop. As someone who has adopted several dogs, and is currently working to rehabilitate a badly abused puppy mill survivor, I’m inclined to agree with the sentiment. But with horses, I think there are things that have to ...
