Part 2 – Developing the Sport Horse: The Importance of Hydration

The horse industry is littered with fallacy. Start by hosing or sponging cold water down the neck over the jugular veins, along the belly and in between the hind legs (look for the big dilated veins!). The repetitive application of cold water is the KEY to removing excess heat from the body.

Comments Off on Tip-Top Tack and Feed Rooms Offer a Place For Everything

When hanging bridles, rather than screw multiple bridle hangers into the wall, the placement of a painted or stained wooden board with the hangers installed in an evenly spaced fashion can provide a pretty accent to your design. The bridle or halter hangers can be patterned evenly, one up and one lower down, to allow more room for the headpieces.

Research Has Identified New Equine Color Genes- Splash White 5 and Sunshine Dilution

Splash White 5 was identified in a group of related French Paint Horses—these horses, a stallion and seven of his daughters, had white spotting that resembled existing Splash White patterns, but they tested negative for the four existing alleles that create those coat patterns as well as other white spotting patterns. Whole genome sequencing helped identify a new Splash White spotting pattern in these horses, created as a result of a genetic deletion of the MITF gene—the MITF gene is the same location where two other Splash White spotting patterns (Splash White 1and Splash White 3) reside. The research, led by J. Henkel of the University of Bern (Switzerland) Institute of Genetics, was published in the April 2019 issue of Animal Genetics—read the study’s abstract and full-text online. Since then, Splash White 5 has been identified in U.S.-based Paint Horses, as well.
