Beware of Ghosts
There are two primary dangers that lurk around during Halloween. One is, of course, monsters: ghosts, goblins, the undead and other restless spirits. The other is the health hazards of all that sugar coming your way via that Halloween candy that you “accidentally” overbought. Keeping your own hands off the chocolate is up to you, but we can offer some guidelines for keeping your horse safe around all those sweets. Keep him healthy, and he’ll be better able to protect you from that other danger, the roaming zombie horde.
