FREE JUNE JULY DIGITAL MAGAZINE
Magazines around the world are finding different ways to continue maintaining contact with their readers. At Hoofbeats we decided that a FREE June/July digital magazine would make it easier to reach our reader base and would be a way to give something back to the equine community . It also makes it easier - with current restrictions - when it pops into your email instead of you having to venture out.
One of the COVID-19 sayings is "We are in this together" and that is so true. As we develop this free digital magazine we are forever thankful to our readers, who have shown their ongoing support with subscriptions and gift subscriptions for friends and family or are trying the app for the first time. Our contributors have continued to suggest and present great topics that help us all connect with our horses and care for their physical and mental well-being.
Advertising has always been an important aspect of the magazine, not just financially ( although very important aspect of course) but also because in past surveys our readers have indicated that they value the ads as a source of information into what products are available as often the large range of choices on the internet leave them confused
THE HOOFBEATS TEAM
Then there's the behind the scene Hoofbeats team ... along with those who contribute their time to help with the many details involved with producing each issue. We definitely are all in this together and we wish everyone one a safe and progressively positive rest of 2020.
TELL US YOUR STORY
As always, we really do look forward to actually hearing from you - just leave a message if we are out and about and we will return your call as soon as possible. We would love to chat or receive an EMAIL re how you have managed to go forward with your riding and training; what you have done around the property; and what you have done to ensure your small horse business will continue to grow; and your thoughts on how the horse industry will emerge from the pandemic.
The experts have indicated that there will be many changes as we emerge from this period. Some businesses will not survive and our way of life may change forever. Has the economic situation adversely affected your horse keeping and will it affect your life style in the future?
As we head towards our next issue we extend our wishes to everyone to stay safe and to continue to make the most of the extra time you have with your horses and property. Sandy Hannan and The Hoofbeats Team

Two foals in the UK have been named in honour of Captain Tom Moore, the 100 year old World War II British veteran who has captured the hearts of the nation during the coronavirus pandemic by raising over £30 million (approx AUS $57 million) by walking 100 times around his Bedfordshire garden.
DOGS AND HORSES DO PLAY The invitation by a dog to play is unmistakable: Bowing with its front legs and wagging its tail, the dog is basically saying to another dog, Let’s have fun! Now scientists report for the first time that dogs and horses play together in a similar manner, with open mouths and synchronously matched behaviours.
A Welsh heritage steam train line's closure during the pandemic meant the grass would quickly take over the line, so while most employees at Tallyllyn Railway have been furloughed during the coronavirus lockdown, some of the donkey work has been taken on by new staff – two donkeys.
WHAT CONTROLS APPETITE IN HORSES? by Dr Jennifer Stewart
