NAME THE BREED
With well over 600 different breeds of horses, we thought it might be fun to give you information on the various horses around the world. Every couple of weeks we will talk about a different horse and give you some basics on each breed.
The Zaniskari pony is a breed of pony found
in northern India. It is a mid-sized pony, that stands approximately 11.1 to 12 hh. They are most often gray in color but can be found in bay, brown, black and chestnut. The Zaniskari
is strong, compact and best known for its endurance and ability to perform in cold climates and high altitudes. There are only a few hundred Zaniskari ponies alive today, and are considered endangered. A conservation program has been started in India to help preserve the breed. Very little of the breed's history is known, but they are thought to be descended at least in part from the Tibetan pony.

Just an FYI...
DRUG PURCHASES - By law, we cannot dispense drugs (that includes things like Bute and Banamine) if we have not seen your horse within one year's time. If you are running low on meds and haven't seen one of the Dr's smiling faces in awhile, we are going to have to ask you to make an appointment. Please understand that we are LEGALLY required to do so.
Dr Dyck's Joke of the Week....
Those who know Dr Dyck are aware of his fondness for a good joke. So we thought we'd share a chuckle or two each week (semi-clean ones, of course)
Halloween is just around the corner, soooooo
