Foaling mares is not for the faint of heart. Having experi- enced a still-born foal myself this year, I have new found compassion and admira- tion for those who make it their passion. So rewarding when things go well, but catastrophic when they don’t. With winter over, we can all look forward to warmer weather, shows, and other pastimes to pursue with our horses. Again this year, MHW is showcasing the endeavors of those enrolled in the AMHA Mini Hours Program. Awarded in 100, 500 and 1000 hour increments, the diverse doings of each of these members and their horses are quite amazing and entertaining. I encourage you to read all about them and then join the fun! I might add, each of them has earned some great prizes along the way.
