Horse Tales and Mane Events - Horses

Texas Technical Large Animal Emergency Rescue Awareness Class

Posted by

I wanted to pass on some information that I received today from Jonna Johnson the Texas State Horse Council Disaster Preparedness Chairperson.

Dear Fellow Equestrians,

As there has been an increase in horse trailer accidents and horse related disasters of barn fires and other life threatening events, I feel it is now more important to get the horse community involved.

Please send this out to your friends, community responders and veterinarians.

This class usually cost two to four times as much. We are NOT trying to make a buck. We are trying to get people educated so we do not have to see the same heart breaking scenes occur over and over, due to lack of education.

Why invest thousands in an animal, equipment, and lessons and then not be able to help do a few things for it in a crisis that can save its life or help it be able to be used again?

Its not a matter of if something will happen, its when. Until then few think about it. Only then do they wish they knew what to do.

You can know what to do and you can make a difference for all involved.

Thank You- Jonna Johnson TSHC chair-------------------------

Two Minds, Two Bodies Become One

Horses are our best friends. Whether you're a one horse type of guy or gal, or you believe that "horses are like potato chips, you can't have just one!" I happen to be a one horse gal, probably because the pony I have is so full of personality that I wouldn't have time for more [...]
