Equine Foundation Pledges Donation to Support Fundraising Initiative for Veterans with PTSD

“The study will look at how the interactions between the horses and humans, sometimes referred to as a “horse/human bond” affect one another,” said Ellen Rankins, Ph.D. Candidate and project lead. “Not only will data be collected during the trial period, we will also follow up with the participants to observe how long these changes are sustained over time.”

Nutrition For the Broodmare

Nutrition For the Broodmare

Around the first month of lactation, the energy demand on the mare is at its highest. During this time, it is crucial that the mare is provided with a high enough energy intake to meet her new requirements (nearly double that of a maintenance horse!) and that she receives an appropriate balance of minerals to encourage proper development of the foal. Pasture access is a huge advantage during this time, as it will help keep gut fill problems to a minimum and should naturally provide her with a good vitamin and mineral assortment.

Nutritional Options for Boosting Your Horse’s Immune System

The immune system is behind all health issues. A healthy immune system reacts to the environment in appropriate ways, while an unhealthy immune system either overreacts or underreacts. Supplementation to improve or support immune function can stimulate or help regulate the immune reactions.

Breeding Season Prep- Estrous Cycle Regulation

Breeding Season Prep- Estrous Cycle Regulation

Horses are known as “long-day breeders,” meaning that they will naturally go into heat for breeding when the days get longer in the spring and summer (at least, in the Northern hemisphere). They are also “seasonally polyestrous,” meaning that they will go through multiple estrous cycles during their breeding season. During the winter months or “short days,” the mare will not cycle. This period is known as anestrous. Changes in lighting as the days get longer induce hormonal changes which bring the mare into heat (estrus). As the mare periodically comes out of heat, this bout of reproductive inactivity during the breeding season is known as diestrus.

Defining Horse Jargon Terms- Movement

Similar to its meaning in music, cadence refers to the rhythm of a horse’s hoof beats. Each gait that a horse performs (walk, trot, canter, etc.) will have a specific footfall pattern. No matter the discipline or gait, you want a horse to have a consistent, even cadence. Not only will this be an indicator of athleticism and soundness, but also level of training and focus. A horse with a steady cadence will likely also maintain a more consistent pace and be more pleasurable to ride.

It’s as unappealing as it sounds. The horse has normally formed manure, but passes extra brown water along with it, staining the tail and hindquarters. This is different from diarrhea, where the frequency of passing manure is increased and/or the consistency of the manure itself is more liquid.
