This week has launched 12 free, handy Fact Sheets on topics of interest to hands-on horse owners. These are invaluable additions to the more than 30 widely acclaimed Fact Sheets that launched in 2009, each of which provides a quick reference and overview of a specific disease, condition, and/or horse management practice.

These Fact Sheets are written by a veterinarian and reviewed by an expert to ensure that the information provided is up-to-date and accurate, and they are presented in a format you can download and save to your own computer, print and share, or e-mail to a friend. Each is brought to you free by a partner sponsor.
