This is usually just an issue with the charset in the mysqli connection not matching the charset on the page or in the database.

Thank you.

I believe you are referring the the actual file that connects to the database so I am pasting that in the private message along with the character set from the page.

Your database horse table has a default charset of DEFAULT CHARSET=latin1. Your connection defines the charset as UTF-8. That conflict is causing the odd characters.

I updated your connection charset to latin1 and the page displays properly now.
