BioStar Debuts WholeFoodforHorses.com Community in 2012
The Biostar team is very happy to announce a new online community just for horse people, like you, who are into feeding whole food at WholeFoodforHorses.com

It is our absolute privelege to be able to create this community in support of helping horses and riders alike get more out of whole food nutrition.
