Update to the new site: I have posted all the horses in need of homes. I am really hoping to place some of our gals into wonderful homes before the winter rains arrive. It is supposed to be a wet winter!
Please take a moment to visit our available horses page.
With the first day of Autumn we observe the Autumnal Equinox . Today the day and night are each about 12 hours long (with the actual time of equal day and night, in the Northern Hemisphere, occurring a few days after the autumnal equinox). The Sun crosses the celestial equator going southward; it rises exactly due east and sets exactly due west. This marks the change of seasons into fall. This is very important to horses as they are finely tuned and well connected to earth and our celestial surroundings. Winter coats begin to grow, & the mares will begin to end their estrus cycles. Nearly all mares are seasonally polyestrous and cycle when day length is long. The changes are subtle, yet as we watch and take note, they are important. Enjoy your Monday and the first day of Autumn.
