Depression

Life is full of peaks and valleys. Depression comes in different forms.  We will not discuss the severe forms of depression, but the mild form, like how you feel on the “it-has-no-point” and “I-would-stay-in-bed-lying” day. Because for these phases there are simple tips and tricks that can help you out.
Tip 1: Do not take yourself too seriously
Benjamin Franklin said: “The only two things you can not walk away from in life – death and taxes”. In addition, he forgot one thing: “grief”. Sadness also no one can escape. Everyone becomes sad in his life. Sometimes you can be sad and depressed about things that are really not that bad. Do not be sad. Self-pity gets you nowhere. Keep in mind that even this difficult time will pass.
Tip 2: Go do something
Do not stay home on the sofa sitting lost in thought. This way you will stay in that circle going around. Go do something! What you will do is not so important as you become active. Go hiking in the woods, grab your bike and go to the market or go on visit to an old friend. Evrything is better than staying at home in front of the TV.

Basic horse care

Horses are often misunderstood because their size and strength can be intimidating. Frightened folks may stay away from these powerful animals, and completely unfamiliar with these gracious beings, may come to the unsubstantiated assumption that horses wanted little care. Just let them roam freely on green pastures, provide a barrel of clear water, and they will be fine. How wrong they are!

Where to keep a horse is an important decision every horse owner has to face. Some horse keepers have plenty of space and time to care for their horse at home, while others lack property, lead busy careers, and prefer to keep their stallion at a boarding stable with amenities, such as indoor and outdoor arenas, heated tack room, hot/cold wash stall, private paddocks and all-inclusive luxury care. Full board may include blanketing, fly masks, daily turnouts, administering supplements, vaccines, parasite control and routine veterinary check-ups.
