The Underground Forest by Joe Rankin, published in April's Forests for Maine's Future newsletter in the Fresh from the Woods section tunes you into the world under your feet. "Walking in the forest you are bathed in sounds, sights, smells -- chirping of birds, sighing of the wind in the branches, flashes of light off the leaves, warmth of sun on your skin, the skittering of tiny creatures in the underbrush.

In all my days upon this earth there has never been a greater time than spring. Nothing more signifies nature’s renewal and God’s blessing upon us. Than the bounty to come represented by two very simple, but yet priceless things. Fiddleheads and trout!

This post is about horses but also about an elephant. The one in the room. It is the subject no one wants to consider when thinking about horses but is a serious and necessary issue. There comes a time in a horse's life, when that life comes to an end.
