Feeding a horse is simple, right? They eat grass.

Well, yes.  But also, no.  There are many, many things to know about horse nutrition, and especially when you’re feeding an adventure horse.  

Rule #1: Don’t forget to pack some apples.

Listen weekly as Meredith and Apollo share about their multi-year 48-state journey (The Centauride), talk with interesting guests, and discuss the realities of domestic abuse.
