Fundamentals of Horsemanship – The Halter
AQHA teamed with La Cense Montana to develop AQHA’s Fundamentals of Horsemanship, a comprehensive guide to improve your relationship with your horse. This lesson demonstrates putting on and taking off a halter. Sounds pretty basic, right? But how you do it says a lot about your relationship. Visit the How-To Channel, sponsored by Tractor Supply.
Evaluation of the Placenta, part 2
Learn more about the foaling process and the contents of the life-giving placenta. Did you know the placenta turns itself inside out as the mare delivers? Evaluating the placenta for infection is critical since the mare can pass the infection to the foal in utero. Visit the Health Channel, sponsored by Pfizer Animal Health.
W.H. Green Cattle Company
The W.H. Green Cattle Company may not have been founded if it had not been for the disobedience of a young man. Learn what drove William Henry Green to not follow his father’s instructions. He made a pretty good choice. The W.H. Green Cattle Company of Albany, Texas, has been going strong for more than 120 years and producing outstanding ranch horses which earned it an AQHA Best Remuda Award. Visit the Ranches Channel, sponsored by FedEx.
