The Near Side: This Week in Horses – May 8, 2015


Happy Friday, everyone, and happy early Mother’s Day to the moms out there. That’s a reminder for everyone to pick up a card or flowers or a pet rock or NASCAR tickets or whatever your mom is into. If you’re lucky, you mom is a horse person and you can enjoy a nice Sunday trail ride together.

Anyway, here’s what’s been happening in the horse world this week.

That’s it for this week. Enjoy your weekend!
