Horses can be a fun family activity to enjoy on a hike, or just out sight seeing on the country side. With the right teaching to both horse and rider I believe it can be very therapeutic and relaxing. Horses not as much now and back in the day, were used as working tools. They are very strong animals and move heavy objects, and carry heavy loads. The bond between an owner and his horse sometimes can be as close a parent and a child.
Caring for the horse requires many different chores from feeding, washing, veterinary visits, and shoeing.Though these are not the only things that are required for taking care of a horse, these are among the most common and are usually required more often than other horse needs.
A horse must have a dry and comfortable stable to spend its nights. These structures have to be kept clean and well stocked with plenty of water and feed. Veterinary visits are an integral part of caring for your horse, though this type of care should only be done by a professional. Shoeing your horse helps keep your horse's hooves in good shape and promotes bone and ankle health. While shoeing basically requires only horseshoe nails and shoes, there are many different methods and practices to ensuring this is done properly.
When it comes to shoeing your horse, it is important to use the right equipment. The shoes and nails you use should be made for the type of work your horse is doing. Well established companies that supply these items should be used, such as the shoeing supplies sold by Anvil Brand.

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of BISSELL Homecare, Inc.. All opinions are 100% mine.
Are the one person in the family that around the holidays that come to your house? I make holidays around here just to have the family and friends over. I enjoy having friends and family over and we have some sort of gathering at least once a month. During the spring and summer months it is usually nice enough that we can grill out and everyone spends the majority of their time outdoors. During the fall and especially the winter months it is just too cold for me, so we tend to gather inside.
While I enjoy family and friends gathering at my house, I have the dreaded housework that comes with it. We have the typical daily housework that we do but when we know someone is coming over I know I tend to try and make sure my house is in double duty clean condition. Here are a few cleaning tips that will help any host. It doesn't matter if you just have the guys coming over for football or the family is coming over for Thanksgiving dinner, you want to house to look and smell nice. First we clean the obvious, we dust, sweep, mop, and vacuum. You also remove any extra clutter, throw out the trash, and organize your magazines so that they don't clutter and make the room look busy. Do you ever think though to move your furniture to vacuum or even vacuum your steps?
What about dusting the corners of your ceilings? These are just a few areas most people don't think about on a normal routine cleaning that should really be done because your guests believe it or not, they notice when it is not done. If it is like at my house, after dinner someone is going to recline in the recliner, and there it is, the dust ball you didn't get. With the BISSELL PowerGlide with Lift-off Technology, you can easily clean your ceilings, corners, stairs, and those hard to reach areas with ease.
Here are just a few of the Key Features:
No loss of suction and sealed system
One-step removable pod for portable cleaning

So now I am going to share a few things with you, my readers of my perspective on the country life.
In the city you have all kinds of ordinances from noise to cutting your grass. I know here in NC they will fine you if you don't cut your grass, so even of you are on vacation you must keep your grass cut or have someone to cut it for you. In the city there is public transportation that helps for a lot of people and in some cases depending on where you live in the city, some places are within walking distance.When you rake your yards or have excessive yard waste, no problem, you just put it all on the curb and eventually the city will come by and pick it up.
These are all great reasons to live in the city, however I can't help but believe that there are just so many more reasons to live in the country.
In the country life on the weekend if I want to have a party, I just have it. There is no one around to hear the noise and complain. If someone gets a little excited and fires a shot gun, no problem, you just put it away for safe keeping, but you don't have to worry about the law showing up. If I go on vacation and miss a week of cutting my grass, no problem it is still there to be cut when I get home. I rake my leaves, and then I burn them. The fire acts as heat when we are all sitting around, and the smoke deters the bugs away. No we don't have any public transportation, and you can't walk to the Doctor's office, but we tend to enjoy the company of friends riding with us when we go into to town. Here are 2 videos that shows how I truly feel about the country life.
In the city you must keep your dogs chained, in the house, on a leash, or have a fenced in yard or animal control will fine you, and possible take your pets to doggy jail (AKA the pound). In the country I can let my puppies run free, have ducks, and enjoy the sound of a rooster in the early am.
To some this doesn't sound enjoyable but I would not have it any other way.
Do you prefer the city or the country life? Why?
Share a story, picture, or even a video of what makes where you stay the best.
I always enjoy reading my readers comments, what they think about my posts.
