Big Horse Feed’s plan helps avoid gift disasters

From the Horsetrader Sales Staff - November 20th, 2015 - General News, Ingate Column

Big Horse Feed and Mercantile “Gift Registry” is the best way to avoid gift giving disasters this holiday season. The gift registry is the perfect opportunity to graciously tell your loved ones what you’d truly like for Christmas. Both registrants and their loved ones will receive 15% off any purchase of registry items (restrictions apply). That’s Big Horse savings! And ladies, it’s your night…Ladies Night on December 3rd, 6-8 pm! There’ll be food and refreshments as well as 20% savings on your Christmas shopping.

You may wonder why this iconic store is called Big Horse. Here’s a little history. Since 1972, the Corona Family had been farming their 165 acres in Temecula and had often hosted educational programs for the local schools. Rose Corona, the Corona’s daughter, was always in charge of those programs. Rose also owned and used her two Belgian Draft Horses for all of the school programs. Draft Horses are unique in themselves mostly because they are so big. However the Corona’s found that although people may not know the family, the people in the community and their children sure knew those two horses, Jim and Mike. Often, people would ask where Corona Ranch was, and when they were told of the location, people would exclaim, “Oh I know you! You’re the ones with the Big Horses!” So with their picture neatly put atop the building in their team harness, Jim and Mike have overlooked the name of the store “Big Horse Feed and Mercantile”.

Stop by the store any time. You’ll find a friendly, welcoming atmosphere, riding and fashion apparel for the whole family, jewelry and accessories, home décor, gifts, feed and plenty of fun. And be sure to whinny at Jim and Mike. You can reach Big Horse at 951-676-2544 with any questions. See ad on page 11.
