Horse N Hound settles at home at new location on Motel Boulevard


After many years at its well-known location on Amador Avenue, Horse N Hound Feed N Supply moved to a new location at 208 N. Motel Blvd. last June, and changed ownership.

The new location is bigger than the Amador Avenue property, which was sold to the City of Las Cruces and will become part of the Casa de Peregrinos emergency food program. And, under new owner Clay Franklin of Food Innovations, LLC., Horse N Hound is more focused on animal food and animal health than merchandise, said Assistant Manager Vince Gardner.

With a staff of 10, Horse N Hound has food and everything else needed to provide for the health and welfare of both household pets and livestock, Gardner said.

That includes horses and cattle, dogs and cats, tortoises and rabbits and even lizards and fish. Horse N Hound also regularly fills special orders for alpaca food, said Gardner, a native of Portales who has a special place in his heart for diary heifers because he used to show them.

Gardner said the move from Amador Avenue to Motel Boulevard took about three months, and the pandemic has prevented Horse N Hound from hosting a grand opening event – but that may still be coming up, he said.

Edge and LaRue Edgmon began the history of Horse N Hound in 1983 when they opened a Purina Feed Store in a small warehouse, according to www.horsenhoundfeed.com/about-us. The Edgmons sold the business to their grandson, Curtis Creighton, in 2005. He moved the store into a larger location and expanded the selections of merchandise. Franklin bought Horse N Hound last year.

Horse N Hound is open 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday-Friday and 9 a.m.-3 p.m. on Saturday.
