Dear (Contact First Name),  

stprefrontOctober was a very exciting month for us here at New Braunfels Feed and Supply. October has become known as  Breast Cancer Awareness month and we helped do our part by hosting a  Halloween Pet Costume Photo Contest here at the store. All the funds we collected were donated to the Central Texas Chapter of Susan B. Komen. Not only did we help make a difference but we also enjoyed seeing everyone's pets in their cute costumes.  It definitely put us in the mood for Halloween!
 
We also held a Low Cost Vaccination Clinic with more than  200 pets vaccinated.  What an incredible turn out.  Due to the success, we offered a second clinic on October 29th in conjunction with our Halloween Pet Costume Photo Contest.  

New Braunfels Feed is pleased to offer specials on Purina horse feeds and Eukanuba/Iams dry pet food.  Read more about our specials below and we encourage everyone to take advantage of these specials.
 

November is a time to give thanks. New Braunfels Feed & Supply will be closed on Thursday, November 25th in honor of Thanksgiving, but we will be in full swing  on Friday and the rest of the weekend.

 

Happy Thanksgiving!

Alan's Answers

We had some fun questions this month. It was great seeing so much interest. Please keep the questions coming.

 

Ronda asked if it too early to "winterize" her yard right now. She says "My lawn is looking really good, especially after our recent rain, nice and green. Do I need to wait or can I go ahead and fertilize?"

 

Don't stop improving the health of your lawn and grass. It will be beneficial next year in the spring. The purpose of fertilizing in the fall is to prepare the root system for winter. Depending upon where you live, you will most likely not want to fertilize past October. A good winter lawn fertilizer would have a high potassium ratio, to stimulate root growth but not leaf/ flower growth. You may want to apply an herbicide for broadleaf weeds at this time. Consider having a soil test done to determine your lawns ph balance. If your lawn is heavily acidic, consider a lime application or if it is too alkaline, you may need an application of sulfur.

 

Visit our website to see what other questions were posted to Alan and leave a question for Alan. We'll publish them on our website and in our newsletter next month.  Thanks!

Senior Horse Nutrition
by Tina M. Anderson, PhD 

aging horsesA horse in its teens may typically be thought of as "old", but the reality is that the genetics of the individual, plus how it was cared for during its life, will dictate when the nutritional needs begin to shift from that of an adult mature horse to that of a geriatric horse. That point in life varies among horses and is a gradual process that doesn't happen overnight.

 

It is estimated that there are over 700,000 senior horses living in the United States today. There was a "horse baby boom" in the mid-to-late 1970s, making 9-11% of the total horse population today older horses. Many of these horses are well into their 20s or 30s, and still live very healthy, active lives due to better care and feeding. Read more of Tina Anderson's horse nutrition article
