The Good, the Bad and the Ugly:
The truth behind Grand Canyon's Havasupai Falls
by Karen Pomroy

Tourists from all over the world journey to Havasupai Falls, one of the most beautiful places on earth, to feel the magic of this enchanted site. Behind the scenes, however, is a horrible abuse that many are not aware of. Horses and mules are burdened down with packs so heavy they collapse in the hot sun, only to be beaten, kicked and forced to stand in order to reach the top of the canyon where there is no shelter, water or rest. Read on as Karen Pomroy, founder of Equine Voices Rescue & Sanctuary, exposes the terrible truth and find out what you can do to help.

Feeding Miniature Horses and Donkeys: Why Slow-Fed Forage is Best
by Monique Warren

Miniature horses and donkeys are some of the cutest creatures you will ever see. But don't let that special stature fool you—whether your mini is for showing, therapy, or a pasture ornament and best friend—they are essentially a scaled-down version of their full-sized counterparts. And when it comes to nutritional needs and feeding protocols—that means a slow fed, forage-based diet is key. Follow along as Hay Pillow creator, Monique Warren, discusses why a slow-feed strategy is best for your mini and find answers to your miniature horse diet questions.
