MORGANTON, NC - On March 11, people in the North Carolina equine industry will vote. The issue at hand is a "self-assessment" that currently pays $2 per ton and 50 cents per bag of horse feed to the North Carolina Horse Council. The funds are used in promoting the horse business throughout the state.

"It's a minimal amount," said Billy Parton, owner, Billy Parton's Training Center. "For the research that's done through places like N,C. State University. Being able to be in the legislature with some lobbying and get things done."

For more information, visit the North Carolina Horse Council.
