The Lake County Horse Council and Rainbow Ag hosted a Horse Owners Workshop and Club Meet-and-Greet on April 25th, at Robinson Rancheria Casino. Many folks showed up to visit, learn more about Lake and Mendocino County horse clubs and associations and to hear Purina nutritionist Kelly Vineyard speak about equine nutrition and the Purina Research Center. Everyone who attended left with a complimentary bag of Purina Impact Hay Stretcher, and there were many great raffle prizes as well. It was a fun and engaging evening and we hope to do it again!
