Regular care is necessary to keep your horse healthy, and can help you avoid costly vet bills later on.

By Similkameen O’Rourke - This is the amazing story of how Legend came to Lasqueti Island, BC.

Vehicles have to be taken over to Lasqueti on a barge. As it turned out, that included Legend in his trailer.
