More about NickerNews
When NickerNews first started, it was a hobby site. I simply wanted to write about horses, their people, and our crazy horse world. I wanted to feature horse folks, their stories, and opinions.
A few years later, the feet are a bit more grounded. NickerNews has a fine and friendly place in the horse community and a great family of advertisers. Thanks for visiting!
