Friday News & Notes from World Equestrian Brands

My horse Nyls is on a diet because he has always been an air fern and the grass this year is absolutely bonkers. Let’s just say he is NOT pleased with the situation, and after only a week in the smallest field I have he has eaten what he thinks is all of the grass, and has started to revolt against the power structure. Yesterday, he leaned his neck all the way out into the middle of the aisle and toppled a full wheelbarrow of poop, and then looked at me like, “You like that??”.
