Caring For Your Horse
IK THIS DAT mil age of large per
centage of the sales of pure bred
animals are consummated by mail.
Founded as the breeding business is,
Upon honor, it is as safe to do business
With the reliable breeder by mail as it
b through personal interviow.
In handling business by mail, not
sough importance is attached to the
printed matter need by many breeders.
In the first place when an inquiry
peaches the breeder ho replies by let
ter. If the inquiry comes from a
Stranger the nature of the breeder's
reply goes far to establish a first im
pression, and with most people first ini:
preasions are hard to efface. The paper
Bpon which a letter is written goes
far to fix an idea of tho personality of
the writer in the mind of the roadcr,
fnd a neatly printed letter head upon
t good quality of papor is tho first
amentia! of good salesmanship by mail.
The writer has freqnontly had the
Inbject of good letterheuds mentioned
by people who have writton to breeders,
and one particularly striking instance
will serve to illustrato my point. A
man who was Improving and Btoeking a
high-class stock farm once asked the
writor what kind of stock Mr.
bad in his herd. I rcpliod that his herd
sires wore among tlio best of the brood,
and that tho females in the herd had
won frequently at our fairs. Ho said
that he had intended to purchaso his
ioundatlon stock from this man, and
had written him for prices and pedi
grees, but that tho reply was writton
very badly on a shoot of common rough
newKpapor tablet paper, and he had de
cided that a man who did not display
more judgment in his eorrcspondonco
was not likely to display any great
amount of judgmont in breeding. As
a result tho brooder loBt a good sale,
a salo which had been dovelopcd by
him through his advertising, and a Bulo
to which he wns entitled on tho merits
of bis stock, for ho really had an ez
collont herd.
TUB AVKBAGB former can learn a
valuable lesson in horse feeding
from the raee-horso man, believes
D, W. MeCampboll, assistant professor
of animal husbandry at the Kansas
Btnto Agricultural College. Tho success
ful trainer knows that too much rough
ago is extremely hard on tho wind and
endurance of a horse. If it puyB the
wnor of a race horse to food for tho
greatest possible wind and endurance,
(t will also bo worth tho while of the
farmer to use earo in feeding his work
"Tho farmer who knows how to get
tho most efficient servico from his
horses, " explained Poetor MeCamp
boll, "will incroaso the amount of
grain used in tho ration, as the work is
tnereased; but he will not Inereaso tho
bay port of the food, because he knows
that a horse cannot do its beet work
when overloaded with rough feod. An
eworloadod digestive apparatus Inter
feres materially with respiration. Horses
loing very hard work should sot havo
noro than ten or twolvo pounds of hay
or each thousand pounds of live woight.
About ono-third of the hay should bo
fed in tho morning, only a Utile should
be given at noon, and the rest should
be fed at night."
It pays to know the eomparatlvo
feeding value of different feeds, so that
ne can ehoose a ration that is eco
nomical and at tho sanio timo moetB

the nceilB of the horse. Prairie, timothy,
cane, kafir, corn and small grain hays
have approximately the same feeding
voluo, according to Doctor McCampbclL
Alfalfa, clover, sweet clover and eow
pea hays havo similar feeding values, al
though alfalfa is slightly tho richest of
the group. This second group should be
considered moro as concentrates than
as rongliago, be bolicves, beeaiiso of
high protoiu content and tho ouso with
which they are digestod.
Dr. McCnnipbcll appreciates oats as
a much moro satisfactory food than
corn or barley. Ho recommends that
only about fivo pounds of alfalfa bay
bo fed daily for ovory thousand pounds
of livo weight.
"In fuelling alfalfa remombor thnt It
is moro of a concentrate than a rough
age, one pound containing 85 per cent
more digestible protein than does one
pound of sliollcd com; and that the
feeding of excessive amounts of pro
tein is one of tho principal causes of
all kinds of digostive and urinary
troubles. For tho best rosults, alfalfa
hay that is to bo fed to horses should
bo pretty mnturo whon cut. This hay
should never bo fed without some other
roughage, such as cane, or straw, or
prairio hay."
GOOD and bad feet are largely in
herited In homo, yet vory often
good foot are ruined by bad treat
ment, writes J, L, lluohanan In the
National fltockman. If colts are foalod
with rrookod feet and especially if tho
hind foot turn over sideways you can
soon remedy this troulilo.by keeping
Inside of bottom of font rasped down
and too cut back a lltllo, leaving the
outside olono. A few trimmings will
itmko the foot straight. Thus every pro
ducer nf horses should be tho owner of
a good horchoor't rasp and use it
when needed.
While horses are going without shoes
a good rnxp should bo kept close at
hand so all irregularities of feet may
be kept rasped off. The foot of horses
allowed to stand too long on a dry,
hard floor or on a pile of heated ma
nure are apt to get too dry and hard,
In which rasa I shonld recommend a
little fixli oil rubbed oa the upper edge
of tho hoof just at the edgo of the hair,
not over the shell of tho hoof, because
It. would shut the air and moisture out.
If put on at junction of hoof and hair
the hoof will take up the oil, and it
will help to grow and toughen the hoof.
I havo known horses to stand on hot
manure until It burnt all of tho lower
part of tho hoof out.
It It a splendid Idea to keep horses
en the ground all yon ean, Continuous
shoeing is mi nous to any horse's feet
unless frequently ehanged, I know of
horses allowed to carry their shoos for
three months, end some until they are
worn off, No wonder lo many horses'
feet are ruined, We frequently tee
eUs thnt in stables for all winter and
no attention paid to their feet, and by
spring their hoofs are two or three and
even four Inches too long and pasterns
sprung hack and toes tnrneu up until
you would declare that both feet and
psslerns wero ruined, Vet when prop
erly trimmed and turned out to pas
tore they soon ootno til right.
llliielKiniths often ilnmugfl a horse 'i
foot by holding redhot shoes too long
ut one place and by making shoes too
short and narrow, producing contracted
hoofs, corns, aide bones, etc Black
smiths are often in a hurry and some
times fit tho foot to the shoe instead
of the shoe to the foot, which it the
proper way. Another fault of too many
smiths is they do not cut or trim
enough from the bottom of the foot and,
on the other hand, eat back too mueU
of tho shell in order to make the foot
fit the shoo, exposing too much of tho
tissues of the foot, thus allowing water
to soak in and oil to evaporate. Tha
enamel or coating of the hoof should
not be broken or removed more than
