“This feel good Sunday is a small departure from what we normally on this day every week. Historically we attempt to consistently come up with some sort of information, news, article or video to make you, the reader, feel a little better and to give you a break from the worries of the week. Instead, on this Feel Good Sunday we are attempting to give you a file drawer full of information to make your equine companion feel good each and everyday so that as end result, you BOTH feel good.
Many thanks to our volunteer Geraldine Bray for compiling this extensive list of online information for your review and perusal. We have many kind folks who contribute posts, here, such as Debbie Coffey, Carol Walker, Grandma Gregg, Louie C, Lisa Leblanc, Vicki Tobin and many others including all of the readers who contribute through commenting, but as of late Geraldine has been sweating over the keyboard and researching articles that she believes will bring value to our readership and aide in keeping everyone informed of the issues facing our American equines be they domestic or wild.
Feel free to bookmark this page for later reference as we do not plan on removing nor moving it.
It is my most sincere wish that this effort, today, brings you value and helps make your life with your equine companions more enjoyable, healthy and rewarding. But above all, don’t forget to give your four legged friends a big hug, today. Life is short and they bring so much joy to each and every day…never forget that. Thanks Geri and keep the faith, my friends.” ~ R.T.
