We have been ushered into fire season here on the Central Coast, and everyone is aware of the extremely dry conditions. Currently we are experiencing warm dry weather which increases the chance of wild fires, as shown by the many fires blazing across the west right now. So the question is not IF but WHEN a wild fire breaks out where you live or board your animals; will you be prepared? Sharon Jantzen asked H.E.E.T. of San Luis Obispo county for information on how to prepare for a fire.
What is that little Thoroughbred foal’s fate if he doesn’t run, or when he is through giving his heart and body for an attempt at those “roses”? The answer is a bit chilling, and known all too well by CANTER USA , an organization that has successfully placed over 20,000 Off the Track Thoroughbreds (better known as OTTB’s) with new owners who have re-purposed these sleek and athletic animals. Sharon Jantzen tell us how you could join in the dance with a new OTTB equine partner.
