Then read and understand why I think that most horses have a chronic protein deficiency.    Doc T

Caspian Horse Society of the Americas believes a pre purchase vet exam is one of the most important things you can do to be certain your investment is protected.  Many folks are now purchasing horses off the internet sight unseen, something CHSA does not recommend, making these exams more important than ever.
