Got More Horses? Welcome to a Big Club

Do you ?have more horses that you did a year or so ago?

Well, guess what? Even the Lone Ranger had Tonto, and you're not alone, either. In fact, you're in a pretty good-sized group. Bigger than 1 out of 4, if you can believe that.

According to a recent survey conducted by one of the entities at our Equine Network meeting last week (subject of my last post), 29 percent of respondents said they had increased, not decreased, their horse numbers in the previous 12 months.

The percentage saying they had cut down on horses was less than half that--14 percent.

Conventional wisdom might have called that one the other way around.

Your thoughts?
