i Mucus and skin inflammation

We are drowning in mud….

It is raining in Denmark .... Every day. And it has done so for a long time.

In fact, all of autumn and winter. The ground was saturated with water long ago, and there are new pools and mud everywhere.

The water poses a whole lot of new challenges in the keeping of our horses. Problems that we are not used to handle.

When I drive around the country, it is the same sight that meets me everywhere. Flooded fields, paddocks where not an honest blade of grass remains, but full of mud. And horses that stand in mud to the middle of the pipes. They don't move that much. Even air folds are full of…

It is time for thoughtfulness. Where is our riding horse breeding heading today?

More wants more, and we become increasingly greedy

Our breeding today is about making horses for the absolute top elite. We want to hit the 'golden age'...
