Home of the archived issues of the weekly advice column on horse health,
I have been writing a weekly newspaper column about horse health and care for the West Plains, Missouri Daily Quill since the mid 1980s. Because I have had so many requests for back issues from horse owners and breeders in the Ozarks region, I thought it might be helpful to publish them on the internet. I asked Mark Rector of the Lazy R Ranch to design and publish this website. I understand it is a very large project, therefore it may take a while to get the hundreds of articles included. I hope you will find these articles helpful.
These articles were written for a regional newsaper, the West Plains, Missouri Daily Quill. They are short topic discussions, because we only had a limited amount of column space available each week.
I think they work pretty well, it doesn't take a long time to read them, and we hope you find it easy to find the topic you are looking for.
Once the site is complete, you will have access to the thousands of hours of careful work I have put into these articles.
