Morton, IL – Bigger isn’t always better according to owners of American Shetland Ponies and Miniature Horses who instead prefer that their equine companions come in smaller size packages. That’s why owners of small equines appreciate Farnam Companies, Inc., a company that focuses on small equines.

Farnam Companies, Inc. has renewed its sponsorship with the American Shetland Pony Club and American Miniature Horse Registry for 2009 as part of their continued commitment to supporting the needs of small equines. Farnam’s Platform® Miniature Horse and Pony Feed is specially formulated for the more efficient digestive systems of the miniature horse and pony to help reduce nutritionally-related problems such as obesity and has been well received by the small equine market.

In addition, Farnam developed the SuperMask® Miniature Horse Fly Mask which is available in two sizes and three styles for small equines. “The products that Farnam has developed for small equines are really beneficial and the ASPC and AMHR are thrilled that Farnam will continue our mutually beneficial agreement in 2009,” said ASPC/AMHR Marketing Director Johnny Robb. “The development of the feed and the fly masks filled a void in the market and owners of small equines across the country have come to rely on Farnam as a leader in the small equine industry.” Farnam will also sponsor the Vetrolin Grooming Awards program that the company instituted with the ASPC and AMHR three years ago. “We recognize that Shetland Pony and Miniature Horse markets are an important segment and are pleased to be able to support them again in 2009,” said Heather Hoff, senior vice president of Farnam Horse Products.

“Farnam has supported the ASPC/AMHR national shows since 2006, the partnership is a natural fit.” ASPC/AMHR Director of Operations Zona Schneider explains. “The American Shetland Pony Club has been in existence for over 120 years and Farnam has been a leader in the horse care industry for more than 60 years, so we are especially pleased that these two industry icons are working together.”
