Horsey Headlines for June 10, 2009

It's been a while since I've done my Horsey Headlines — I totally forgot that I was supposed to be doing them in the first place! Whoops...

Here's a fun story about Denver's great big blue mustang with glowing red eyes that greets travelers on their way to and from Denver International Airport. The journalist tries to argue that controversy about people not liking the artwork is just as good as people liking it. I'm not so sure about that, and I have to admit, I'm not a fan!

Apparently on Sunday, a horse was attacked by a dog at a Maine race track. The horse ran into a dumpster and died as a result of his injuries. The race track has responded by banning dogs from the race track.

And it seems that horse racing is popular in Iraq. Who knew?

Here's a nice reminder to vaccinate your horses against West Nile. Apparently Washington is leading the rest of the U.S. in equine West Nile cases. If you haven't already vaccinated, you'll need to do it ASAP: I was asking my vet about it yesterday, and he said that West Nile vaccines really need to be done no later than June 15 in order to be effective by the time West Nile season (August and September) rolls around.

And here's just a nice "evergreen" sort of article, about feeding horses properly.
