Grooming ToolsDid you know that your horse's hair coat can tell you a lot about his overall health? Any of us who are grooming our horses this time of year are very aware of the hair coat, for one we are likely to be wearing much of that shed hair ourselves after a grooming session! Shedding (or not shedding) can be a sign of problems though. Cushing Disease, thyroid issue and parasite infestations can all cause strange or inconsistent shedding patterns. Hair can also be analyzed to monitor levels of nutrients, minerals and heavy metals in a horse's system. DNA testing can determine any number of things, from parentage to genetic disorders. Learn more about horses' hair coats in this article from Spring and shedding season are traditional times to deworm our horses too—so take advantage of this month's subscriber special and save 20% on any Equine dewormer in stock at Rainbow Ag.

Rehoming Horses Safely is Community Business!

SAFER"Rescue" horses should really be called "displaced" horses since only a few of them are actually in bad shape. It is largely the problems of owners that are making them homeless – not faults of their own. Well – life happens to us all and it becomes a huge relief to owners to know their animals are going to a safe place and their welfare monitored. That has been the experience of SAFER Horse Rescue through the 7 years we have operated in the tri-county area of Mendocino, Lake and Sonoma counties.

But no one agency can do all the work that needs doing! That is why SAFER has designed its programs to help ANYONE take in a horse or two; fix 'em up, and get help finding that forever home. No fees involved. Or you can work with SAFER and be a foster home while SAFER pays for farrier and vet care. (more information at There is a great deal of satisfaction involved – and sometimes heartache. So if you feel the presence of equine souls you are destined to meet, please consider being the home that allows them a second chance. It doesn't last forever - but the difference you make can.

You can read their stories – adoption by adoption at or sign up for the monthly eNewsletter to hear who got homes and where – and who needs one now. Sign up is on the main page of the website SAFER runs on donations only – Please consider us in your charitable tax deductible giving. For Mendocino and Lake County concerns call Angie Herman at 707-489-0553. For website and donor questions call Kate Sullivan at 707-824-9543.

To donate to SAFER, look for the purple "Donate Now" button on the left side of the website, or mail checks to 9825 Mill Station Rd Sebastopol, CA 95472
