Caravan Fiolm screening Nov 7November News

It has been nearly a year since Kelseyville residents John and Joanne Van Eck began the journey of a lifetime. For five months, and covering over 2500 miles, the Van Ecks joined a group of horsemen and women, traveling from California to Florida in horse-drawn vehicles. The journey was recorded by a Canadian film company, and the resulting documentary, The Caravan, will be officially debuted at the Equus Film Festival in New York City, but local folks can see it first at a sneak preview Saturday November 7th, at the Van Eck's Cole Creek Equestrian Center, in a benefit for those affected by the Valley Fire.

The Van Eck's caravan
The Van Ecks team made the trip fueled by Purina Ultium Horse Feed

The epic documentary adventure takes us on a cinematic ride aboard The Caravan where adventurers grapple with route-finding, laws of nature and group dynamics in an epic horse-drawn experience across America. The film follows an international group of carriage drivers and horse riders who willingly alter their lives for a 5 month pilgrimage. Leading this group of relative strangers is Gerard Paagman with his team of elegant Friesian horses fresh off filming The Hunger Games - Catching Fire. Challenging the limits of disability is Michael Muir, Great Grandson of the visionary John Muir, Father of the National Parks and co-founder of a conservation movement in the U.S. They all venture through iconic landscapes, up and over mountains, through deserts, mired in mud, by the sea, under tall pine forests, through bayous and down the backroads of America. They would have spats and find affection, anger and respect.

The special screening will start at 5:00 PM on November 7th, and will include the film, popcorn, Lake County wines, and a special Gumbo cooked by John Van Eck from a recipe that he picked up on the Caravan's trip through the south. Cost is $25.00 and proceeds will go to the Lake Area Rotary Clubs Association, which will focus the donations to help people displaced by the fires find housing as winter approaches. The Van Ecks are well known in Lake and Mendocino counties for their generosity and opening their equestrian facility to host up to 70 horses, goats, sheep and other livestock during the fires, along with serving as a donation center. Learn more about the film, The Caravan, visit or To reserve a seat at the November 7 screening, please call (707) 279-0915.

Season Changes Mean Diet Changes for Most Horses

Karen E. Davison, Ph.D. - Equine Nutritionist and Sales Support Manager

Changing seasons can bring about potential problems for horses and horse owners. Pasture quality fluctuates with every season, but the shift in quality from summer to fall is significant. During the fall, there are often warm, sunny days and cool nights. Pasture plants manufacture sugars in the presence of water, carbon dioxide and sunshine, and then use those sugars to fuel growth during the night. However, when nighttime temperatures drop in the autumn, it becomes too chilly for plants to grow and the sugars are stored for later use. This leads to a concentration of stored sugars in the plants, which may increase the risk of digestive upset or laminitis in some horses. Horses at most risk are those that are significantly overweight or those that have trouble managing normal blood sugar levels and are sensitive to sugar content in the diet. Read Article . . .
