My Passion - Helping Horses Worldwide! In 1984, after qualifying for the European Championships, I had to retire my beautiful Hanoverian gelding, Pirat, for lameness, and my riding career came abruptly to an end. I wish I knew then what I have learned in the past 35-plus years as a Certified Master Saddler consulting with equine professionals around the world.

The energy requirements of the lactating mare increase by 75 percent in relation to those of the horse in maintenance, and by 43 percent in relation to the needs of the mare at the end of gestation. In fact, the energy requirements of lactating mares are roughly equivalent to those of horses in intense exercise, such as racehorses!

Proper care for your turnout sheets and blankets - Turnout sheets and blankets are essential when it comes to keeping your horse dry and comfortable in the pasture. They repel water, but are also breathable and allow your horse to handle temperature changes. As spring (mud season!) is rolling around the corner, make sure you are properly caring for your turnout blankets and sheets to ensure the best performance and the most longevity.

The late John Dahle, founder of Norse Log Homes, began building log homes in 1975 when he and his wife Kathy lived in 100 Mile House, BC. In 1984, they moved to Nanaimo where he was convinced that Vancouver Island had the best Douglas fir house logs in the world. His father, Roald, assisted with some financial investment and, once repaid, John built him a cabin on Horne Lake which became the family’s go-to retreat for decades.
