Hay is for horses! Everyone knows that, but do you know how much hay they need? Or how much water? Did you know your horse can talk to you with his ears? Or that he can sleep standing up? Follow along with Athena the horse as she explains the basics of keeping a horse in your backyard. She'll teach you the basic necessities of caring for your equine friend, from what kind of fencing you can use, to tips and tricks for keeping water thawed in winter weather, and even fun stuff you can do with your horse. Keeping a backyard horse can be fairly simple, and even if you have a tight budget, it can be done!

Excellent listen

If you love your horses, this is a great listen to what you can and should do. From food to exercise, and all areas of general care. This is full of facts that you should know to keep your horse healthy and happy.

It reminded me of why I love them, why I used to ride and I really wanted my own when I was younger. Sigh. Last time I rode though I broke two ribs coming off. Been a while since. But this really brought home the reasons why I love these majestic creatures.

The narration is easy on the ears, adds in just enough to make it interesting even with the facts. A great job from both writer and narrator.

Thanks for reminding me what I've been missing, I must get back on that horse :)
