Don't forget to check your horse's legs in the winter. The long winter hair can hide cuts, splints, or other wounds. I recommend checking them daily at feeding time. I run my hand from the knee and hock down on both sides of each leg. Remember that your horse depends on you for his health and well being.
Thought of the day:
A good rider can hear his horse speak to him, a great rider can hear his horse whisper, but a bad rider won't hear his horse even if it screams at him.
