Hope this finds everyone winding up a great summer with lots of your favourite equine activities. Record high temperatures and lots of sunshine have made for a good summer for most.

Thanks to decades of research, we now know that defects in inheritable genes are responsible for some of the diseases that afflict some American Quarter Horses.
