Only two more days of 2022! I don’t know about everyone else, but this has been an odd year for me, and I’m looking forward to accomplishing much more in 2023. I don’t really do resolutions, but there is always something exciting about starting a new year, and a new season of competition. I’m sadly not heading south this year, but I am already planning to do it next year, and hopefully that will help me endure the next two months of horrid weather.

Best of Blogs: Being Enough

It’s now been more than 10 months since Russia invaded Ukraine. Amid almost incomprehensible hardship and destruction, the Ukrainians who remain in the country (14 million are estimated to have fled) continue trying to survive and maintain some semblance of normalcy. For some, that includes continuing to look after their horses. For horse owners, this means more difficulties and troubles. Stables are looking for generators to be able to produce electricity during blackouts and water buckets to create and store an emergency water supply. Horse owners are asking in addition to hay and feed also for blankets to keep horses warm. Before the war, putting a blanket over a horse during winter was not very common in Ukraine. During the times of feed insecurity, blankets became essential to lower the feed expenses. [Ukranian Relief for Horses]
