Happy Fourth of July! No plans to high dive your presidentially-becloaked horse into a pool 60 feet below, I hope. I do hope you and your loved ones have some other festive things planned for the day, and that the four legged among you are prepared to coolly ride out any fireworks in your area. Did you know that more pets are lost on Independence Day than any other day of the year? Please keep your horses, dogs, and cats secure tonight. Administer treats, calming music, and extra playtime as needed!I'll be heading out of Virginia this weekend, so things will be quiet around here for a bit--with one special exception this time next week… Until then, Happy Independence Day, and have a great week!
