Volume 1, Number 1
Welcome to our first edition of the Checkerboard Corral
In addition to our Checkerboard Corral Newspaper, I wanted to have the opportunity to bring you event information, announcements, and articles that you may need on a more timely basis. I believe this medium will provide that avenue.
I am very excited about this new arena of communication, and I hope you will find it beneficial. We plan to begin the first edition with the five sections listed in the menu above. You can click on any of these subjects, and you will be immediately moved to that section of the newsletter.

Timely reminder: Contact your local veterinarian and make sure
you have your horse or horses on a routine worming schedule along with the
correct vaccinations to fit your program. Don’t forget to have your vet check
your horse’s teeth to make sure they are wearing normally.
For your performance horse that you are demanding a lot from, check out Purina’s New Ultium feed. The results we are seeing in the field are tremendous. There is nothing like it.
Also, if you are interested in seeing what the Purina Program can do for your horse, take the Purina Challenge. E-mail us and we can get your Purina representative in touch with you to match the right feeding program for your horse or horses and take the challenge.
