Did you know that W.F.Young, Inc. is a family owned American business and always has been? We have owned and cared for horses throughout the companies history. I wanted to share our love of horses, so here are some pictures of us “horsing around”.

Wilbur,  ready for a wintertime romp!

Tyler and Jean recently visited the Friesians Of Majesty farm in Townshend, VT with their son Trevor and friend Peyton. The Friesians Of Majesty farm is home to Othello and Mathijs, champion stallions. If you like Friesians, check out their site!

Jamie Young, great granddaughter of Wilbur, with Goth, her  rescued Percheron gelding.

Jamie is our New Products Consultant. She has owned horses for most of her life and is a passionate animal lover. We use her valuable insight into horse care as we develop new products here at W.F. Young, Inc.

Your faithful blog/facebook administrator Sean, great great grandson, on Danny the Percheron.

Danny was my horse growing up. My mother Jamie used him for all sorts of tasks on her land and he had a huge heart. Danny was a forgiving mount for us kids to learn on, but he REALLY loved to pull! We miss you Danny.

Jaime McKinley, great great granddaughter and current V.P. Of New Product Development, ready for a trail ride.

Jaime (spelled differently than her aunt’s name) is in charge of developing innovative horse products here at Absorbine. Her latest project was to extend the ShowSheen line and update it with hair health ingredients to promote your horse’s beauty from the inside-out. Jaime and Jamie (J squared) work to combine our many years of experience with modern technology and practices.

One of our favorite horses named 8N. He stills works fine.
