Neoplasia is the uncontrolled, abnormal growth of cells in the body. The growth itself is called a neoplasm or tumor.

Tumors can be benign or malignant. Benign neoplasms tend to grow slowly. They displace, but do not invade, surrounding body tissues and do not spread throughout the body.

Malignant neoplasms, on the other hand, can be unpredictable and grow at various rates, sometimes rapidly. They invade surrounding tissues and spread or metastasize to other parts of the body.

Cooler weather can be ideal horseback riding weather. Nothing like a cool day to energize ourselves and decrease the bugs to make it a perfect day for a good ride.

As cooler days increase, here are some tips to prepare your horse and its environment.

Monitor your pastures. If you have adequate acreage, take horses off specific areas to allow the grasses themselves to prepare for winter. Leaving some height/leaf on the grasses allows them to store nutrients.
