The weather was not particularly favorable for Dixie Hughes and Fay Miller last Sunday as they set up for their first Horsey Yard Sale at Hughes' Tall Maples Farm in Hampstead.As the day progressed, however, the rain did not stop buyers from packing into Hughes' indoor arena looking for bargains for themselves and their horses.Most of the vendors were selling used tack (Western and English riding apparel, saddles, bridles, whips, horse blankets), but there were also custom-made T-shirts, horse art and handcrafted rocking horses to be found.

DO YOU have an uninhabited 50-acre farm with stalls, fencing and a residence? If you do, folks at Days End Farm Horse Rescue would like to talk to you. The Lisbon home for abused and neglected horses needs more space. The 15-acre farm houses 37 horses seized by Maryland animal welfare agencies. Staff members and volunteers must feed hay twice a day because of the lack of grazing land. Kathy Schwartz, president of Days End, got the idea for a horse rescue facility in 1989, after seeing a neglected horse at a self-care facility, where people board horses but must continue to care for them.

How you respond to pet emergencies may mean the difference between life or death for your animal. Besides keeping the phone number of your veterinarian in a prominent place, you should consider having a pet first-aid book in the house.Perhaps the best pet owners' first-aid manuals on the market are "The Home Pet Vet Guide: Dogs" and "The Home Pet Vet Guide: Cats" by Marvin I. Green ($7.95 plus $2 shipping and handling each in paperback; Berkshire Studio, West Stockbridge, Mass. 01260). These books contain lucid, fast-reading instructions for action in many emergencies.
