Well, another year kicks off with some challenges, but the folks at EQ-Wine Covers are ready! Delivering steel structures all over California during a dry (so far!) winter has allowed them to meet the recent demands of a newly expanding real estate market. The number of celebrity owned, new horse facilities going up in the Santa Ynez area is truly amazing! Smaller, family-owned operations are on the upswing as well. There is a new surge in horse ownership going on in America! Here’s to hoping that the gloom of years past is behind us for good! Your friends at EQ-Wine Covers wishes a Happy New Year to all!

Colic is responsible for more deaths in horses than any other condition. A sudden change in your horse’s lifestyle or diet, such as different hay or grain, increased stall time, adjustment in activity level, or even dehydration can lead to colic. Luckily, studies suggest there are things you can do to help reduce your horse’s risk. SmartDigest Ultra by SmartPak offers everything your horse needs for a healthy hindgut. This innovative formula contains specialized ingredients backed by clinical research. SmartPak is so confident in the combination of SmartDigest Ultra and a veterinarian-directed wellness program that they are backing it with ColicCare, their free $7500 colic surgery reimbursement program. To learn more and to enroll in the program, visit the website: www.SmartPak.com/ColiCare, or call (888) 204-9997. After all, the only thing better than $7,500 of colic surgery reimbursement is never having to use it! See ad on page 43.
