Dr. Cheryl McCullough, a veterinary pathologist and Goose’s owner of 13 years, was willing to give it a chance.

Study Sheds Light on Foal Gut Health From Birth to Weaning

Just like human infants, foals need properly established gut microbiota in order to develop correctly and be healthy in their first years of life. Microorganisms associated with contact with the mare and consumption of colostrum and milk are the first to colonize a foal’s GI system.

Eastern Equine Encephalitis- Keeping the Deadly Disease at Bay

EEE is fatal in 30% of human cases and 90% of equine cases. It is also known to affect deer and other mammals, but is most common in horses. Horses and humans are both “dead ends” for the virus, meaning that the virus cannot be transmitted from one infected individual to another; the levels of virus in the bloodstream are too low for a mosquito  to pick the virus back up and spread it further. “Just like West Nile virus,” says Barrell, “the horse is not a threat to other horses.”

Study Reports Warmblood Fragile Foal Syndrome Not Associated With Catastrophic Breakdown

Warmblood Fragile Foal Syndrome is inherited in an autosomal recessive fashion, meaning that a horse needs to have two copies of the mutation to be affected. WFFS is a fatal genetic defect of connective tissue characterized by hyperextensible, abnormally thin, fragile skin and mucous membranes. More than 700 Thoroughbreds were tested for the WFFS mutation, including 22 catastrophic breakdown fatalities. The allele frequency among all samples was 1.2 percent and the carrier rate (or horses with one copy) was 2.4 percent. None of the horses in the study had two copies of the mutation and only one of the 22 catastrophic breakdown cases carried the WFFS allele.

Handling The Heat- Hot Topic For Horses

This number will assist in determining if it’s too hot to exercise a horse. If the sum is below 130, thermoregulation should not be a concern. When the comfort index is between 130 and 150, horses will sweat, but they can exercise without major problems. When the comfort index exceeds 150 and the humidity is greater than 75 percent, heat dissipation may be an issue and riders should monitor their horses carefully. If the comfort index exceeds 180, a horse should not be exercised, as it will be unable to dissipate enough heat to stay safe.
