In the winter of 1891 and ’92 an experiment was made by this station in determining the value of different methods of wintering weanling colts. As the experiment here reported is of the same character, made with the same colts, and supplementary to the former, we here repeat the description of the animals under experiment. “The colts used in making the trials consisted of six head of imported Alleys, two Percherons, Victoreuse (37255) 16080, and Miss (37162) 16079, two English Shires, Stuntney Victoria 3925, and Stuntney Alexandria 3924, and two French Coach, Neomie 1117 and Normandie 1118. The Percherons are both grand-daughters of Gilbert 5451 (461), and the Shires and Coachers are respectively half sisters, thus making a comparatively uniform lot. All were foaled in the spring of 1891.”
