Damage to the origin of the gastrocnemius and superficial digital flexor muscles has been previously reported as an acute injury in both foals and adult horses. This case report describes, for the first time, the clinical onset of caudal reciprocal apparatus failure in a 2-year-old Thoroughbred. These signs were due to injury of the gastrocnemius and superficial digital flexor muscle origins sustained prior to the onset of lameness. This condition should be considered in cases demonstrating similar clinical signs, even in the absence of known trauma or acute injury to the region. ...
Flow cytometry was used to assess the phagocytosis of fluorescent-labelled bacteria by equine peripheral blood neutrophils and pulmonary alveolar macrophages. Cell populations were prepared from venous blood following ammonium chloride lysis and from washed bronchoalveolar lavage derived samples. Discrete clusters of cells, corresponding to different leucocyte groups, were readily identified on the basis of differing light scattering properties and could thus be discriminated, negating the need for prior cell separation. Cells able to associate with fluorescent-labelled bacteria (by attachment to the cell membrane or by internalization within the cell) acquired increased fluorescence and were readily differentiated from cells unable to interact with bacteria. The fluorescence of bacteria attached to the cell surface was quenched by the addition of trypan blue or counterstained by the addition of ethidium bromide to the assay, thus permitting identification of cells which were able to internalize ...
Information on endogenous retroviruses fixed in the horse (Equus caballus) genome is scarce. The recent availability of a draft sequence of the horse genome enables the detection of such integrated viruses by similarity search. Using translated nucleotide fragments from gamma-, beta-, and delta-retroviral genera for initial searches, a full-length beta-retrovirus genome was retrieved from a horse chromosome 5 contig. The provirus, tentatively named EqERV-beta1 (for the first equine endogenous beta-retrovirus), was 10434 nucleotide (nt) in length with the usual retroviral genome structure of 5LTR-gag-pro-pol-env-3LTR. The LTRs were 1361 nt long, and differed approximately 1% from each other, suggestive of a relatively recent integration. Coding sequences for gag, pro and pol were present in three different reading-frames, as common for beta-retroviruses, and the reading frames were completely open, except that the env gene was interrupted by a single stopcodon. No reading frame was apparent ...
In Western Canada, horse populations once numbered in the millions. Currently, unprotected and routinely culled these wild horses are being indiscriminately sent to slaughter for human consumption. An ariel count performed by the ESRD in March 2013 estimated 980 wild horses were living in the Rocky Mountian foothills. 31 per cent of the total wild horse herd has been trapped in the past two seasons and in January of 2014 another record capture season, to cull 200 wild horses, was announced by the ESRD. If we dont act now to study and protect them, Albertas wild horses will be gone and forever lost.. Im calling on all Canadians and the International community to join me in demanding that the Canadian Government, both Provincial and Federal, finally commit to protect our wild horses by creating cohesive legislation under which all our wild horses will be protected and granted the freedom to roam our public Lands, which is as much theirs as it is ours ...
Standardbreds tend to be more muscled and longer bodied than the Thoroughbred. They also are of more placid dispositions, as suits horses whose races involve more strategy and more changes of speed than do Thoroughbred races. Standardbreds are considered people-oriented, easy-to-train horses. They are generally a bit heavier in build than Thoroughbreds, but have refined, solid legs and powerful shoulders and hindquarters. Standardbreds have a wide range of heights, from 14 to 17 hands (56 to 68 inches, 142 to 173 cm), although most are between 15 and 16 hands (60 and 64 inches, 152 and 163 cm).[6] They are most often bay, brown or black,[1] although other colors such as chestnut are seen. Gray and roan are also found.[6] The Standardbred typically weighs between 800 and 1,000 pounds (360 and 450 kg).[1] Their heads are refined and straight with broad foreheads, large nostrils, and shallow mouths. The typical Standardbred body is long, with the withers being well defined, with strong shoulders ...

Background: Exercise-induced pulmonary haemorrhage (EIPH) is commonly implicated as a cause of poor athletic performance but there is limited and conflicting evidence for this association. Objectives: The aim of this study was to determine if EIPH, based on endoscopic examination after racing, is associated with a variety of novel and established performance parameters. Study design: Prospective, observational cross-sectional study. Methods: Thoroughbred racehorses competing between 2012 and 2015 were examined on-course no earlier than 30 min after racing. Examinations were recorded and graded blindly by experienced veterinarians using a 0-4 scale. Linear mixed effect models were used for analysis of continuous response variables with horse name incorporated as a random effect to account for repeated sampling and horse variability. Generalised estimating equations were used for analysis of binary responses. Performance variables were examined in 2 models, comparing EIPH grade 0 to grades 1-4, ...

A 2 years old female Thoroughbred horse was presented with an ocular disorder. In initial eye examination, the left eye was diagnosed with severe uveitis including hypopyon. Additionally, a live parasite about 3 cm in length was clearly seen wriggling in the left eye. A modified needle aspiration technique was performed to extract the live eye worm from the anterior chamber of the eye. The patient was recovered without any post-operative complications within 1 month. This modified needle aspiration technique could be an effective procedure for eliminating eye worms in horses. © Medwell Journals, 2014. ...
Summit reveals heinous attitude towards Americas wild horses. U.S. Rep. Rob Bishop of Utah told the wild horse summit, which was held behind closed doors in Utah last week, that wild horse advocates care more about fundraising than the animals, but of course there were no advocates there to defend themselves because they were not invited to attend. Then the coward had the gall to joke that some members of Congress believe that every horse is Seabiscuit. Of course, the French think every horse should be Sea-Brisket.. It is also no laughing matter that Bishop, U.S. Rep Chris Stewart, R-Utah; and Aurelia Skipwith, deputy assistant U.S. Interior Secretary for fish and wildlife and national parks, were allowed to get away with advancing their agenda of slaughtering wild horses so federally subsidized cattle and sheep ranchers can steal more land from wild horses and other wildlife.. Instead of pro-slaughter efforts in Congress regarding wild horses, we need legislation that would allow wild ...

Why not?. Unless some self-appointed wild horse lovers step in and manage to quash the idea, the Bureau of Land Management is seriously considering still another method for reducing the wild horse and burro population on the open range and in pens.. The idea was floated in a report to Congress this past April. Instead of charging people $125 a head to adopt a wild horse or burro, pay people $1,000 a head to adopt and care for the feral animals instead of letting them starve on overgrazed range or languish in pens.. The report predicted, If the incentive proves to increase adoptions beyond the planned 5,000, the BLM could decrease the use of permanent sterilization and increase removals to match adoption/sale totals. While this incentive would increase costs in the initial years, it will quickly pay for itself by lowering off-range holding expenditures, adding that the program could reduce the 83,000 horses and burros on the open range to the goal of 27,000 by 2030.. The idea was endorsed in ...
Head-body length: 7 feet. Shoulder height: 4 feet. Tail length: 3 feet (Lowry Park Zoo). Przewalskis wild horse is stocky with short legs and a short neck, looking very pony-like (Burton 1962). Its head is massive with a long face and a powerful jaw. The upper and lower incisors are used for cutting vegetation, while its many hypsodont cheek teeth are used for grinding. With eyes set far back in the skull, it is able to view a wide field, making the only blind spot directly behind its head. The ears are fairly long and erect, but can be moved for the localization of sounds (Lowry Park Zoo).. A stiff, erect blackish mane runs down the back. The legs are slender. The tail hairs are of graduated lengths. In the summer its pelage is short and smooth. back and sides are reddish-brown. The coloration turns to a yellowish white on its belly. In the winter its pelage becomes longer and lighter in color (Denver Zoo 1997).. ...

In June, veterinarians at the Prague Zoo administered a check-up to Cassovia, a 550-pound female Przewalskis horse, before moving her to a new home on the Asian steppe. Natives of Mongolia, China, Russia and Eastern Europe, Przewalskis (pronounced shah-val-ski) horses are the last wild horses left on Earth. Unlike the feral horse population of North America, the species has no domestic ancestors. Hunters and environmental pressures all but wiped out the animals by the 1970s, but about 1,500 remain in captivity.
Sterilization experiments are cruel and with no merit. The Bureau of Land Managements (BLM) overpopulation claims are fraudulent and any action such as experimentation for population control, fertility control, or other actions taken that are based on fraudulent information is wrongful. There are no excess wild horses on public land. Roundups have been based on fraudulent data. Read more about that here: http://protectmustangs.org/?p=8551. Americans must not allow tax dollars to fund experiments reminiscent of Dr. Joseph Mengele. The rights of American wild horses are being violated. Pregnant mares especially must never be used in sterilization experiments!. There are no accurate head counts of wild horse populations, many herd management areas have no wild horses left on them, and the BLMs horrible customer service and poor marketing are the reason wild horse adoption has dropped. Its as if the BLM wants their adoption program to fail.. Any and all experimentation based on the ...
Arabian horses are believed to be one of the oldest and most influential horse breeds in the world. Blood is the main tissue involved in maintaining body homeostasis, and it is considered a marker of the processes taking place in the other tissues. Thus, the aim of our study was to identify the genetic basis of changes occurring in the blood of Arabian horses subjected to a training regimen and to compare the global gene expression profiles between different training periods (T1: after a slow canter phase that is considered a conditioning phase, T2: after an intense gallop phase, and T3: at the end of the racing season) and between trained and untrained horses (T0). RNA sequencing was performed on 37 samples with a 75-bp single-end run on a HiScanSQ platform (Illumina), and differentially expressed genes (DEGs) were identified based on DESeq2 (v1.11.25) software. An increase in the number of DEGs between subsequent training periods was observed, and the highest amount of DEGs (440) was detected between

Signals of dominance and submissiveness are central to conspecific communication in many species. For domestic animals, sensitivities to these signals in h
Mare body measurements (BW, BCS, and RF) changed as a result of the maternal diet, with mares fed grain (or grain mix; PG and PGS) having greater BW, BCS, and RF at foaling compared with mares fed no grain (PA and PS). Although mares fed no grain were estimated to receive approximately 100% of NRC (2007) recommended allowances for mares in the last one-third of gestation, they did lose BCS and RF. The loss in BCS of mares fed no grain indicates that PA was not sufficient to maintain late-gestation mares in this management setting. Foal BW was not affected by the difference between body measurements of mares fed no grain compared with mares fed grain. However, foal weight expressed as a percentage of mare weight tended to be greater in foals from mares fed no grain than in foals from mares fed grain. This may be a result of foals from mares fed no supplemental grain mobilizing greater body stores (noted by a reduction in mare BCS and RF) from their dams as late gestation progressed, resulting in ...

Protect Mustangs calls for a freeze on roundups for scientific reevaluation. Tonopah, NV (October 31, 2014)-The Battle Mountain District, Tonopah Field Office is rounding up about 120 wild horses from within the Reveille Allotment and Herd Management Area (HMA) located approximately 50 miles east of Tonopah, NV to remove alleged excess wild horses on 600,000 acres of public land.. The BLM is wiping out Americas wild horses and taxpayers are paying for the abuse, states Anne Novak, executive director of Protect Mustangs. We need to stop the roundups and protect our native wild horses.. The roundup will stampede native wild horse families by helicopter over a fragile ecosystem and possible sage grouse habitat in the Great Basin Desert. Often wild horses are injured and die in roundups. The treacherous roundup is paid for with tax dollars, and began October 30, 2014. Most herds need to be rounded up before given PZP.. After the roundup, approximately 70 wild horses will be permanently removed, ...

Serum specimens from 12 sick and 20 normal horses were examined for levels of different classes of immunoglobulin (Ig) by a single radial immunodiffusion. The level of IgA in the sera of sick horses was about 50% lower than in the sera of normal horses. By contrast, the level of serum IgG was higher in sick than in normal horses. Phytohemagglutinin (PHA) responsiveness of blood lymphocytes showed transient suppression during the stage of severe diarrhea. The regaining of PHA responsiveness of lymphocytes was observed simultaneously with the recovery process. However, the responsiveness of lymphocytes in recovered horses was still markedly lower than in normal horses. Allergic reactions in sick and normal horses were studied by observing dermal response to the injections of saline extracts from some of the horse feeds. A delayed hypersensitivity reaction to streptokinase-streptodornase and PHA was also studied. The allergic reactions to these extracts were not induced in either sick or normal ...
BACKGROUND: The catalog of genetic variants in the horse genome originates from a few select animals, the majority originating from the Thoroughbred mare used for the equine genome sequencing project. The purpose of this study was to identify genetic variants, including single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), insertion/deletion polymorphisms (INDELs), and copy number variants (CNVs) in the genome of an individual Quarter Horse mare sequenced by next-generation sequencing. RESULTS: Using massively parallel paired-end sequencing, we generated 59.6 Gb of DNA sequence from a Quarter Horse mare resulting in an average of 24.7X sequence coverage. Reads were mapped to approximately 97% of the reference Thoroughbred genome. Unmapped reads were de novo assembled resulting in 19.1 Mb of new genomic sequence in the horse. Using a stringent filtering method, we identified 3.1 million SNPs, 193 thousand INDELs, and 282 CNVs. Genetic variants were annotated to determine their impact on gene structure and ...

The first Thoroughbred horse in the American Colonies was Bulle Rock, imported in 1730.[40][41] Maryland and Virginia were the centers of Colonial Thoroughbred breeding, along with South Carolina and New York. During the American Revolution importations of horses from England practically stopped but were restarted after the signing of a peace treaty. Two important stallions were imported around the time of the Revolution; Messenger in 1788 and Diomed before that. Messenger left little impact on the American Thoroughbred, but is considered a foundation sire of the Standardbred breed. Diomed, who won the Derby Stakes in 1780, had a significant impact on American Thoroughbred breeding, mainly through his son Sir Archy.[42][43] John F. Wall, a racing historian, said that Sir Archy was the first outstanding stallion we can claim as native American.[44] He was retired from the racetrack because of lack of opponents.[44]. After the American Revolution, the center of Thoroughbred breeding and racing ...

Investigating depression-like conditions in animals is methodologically challenging, but potentially important for welfare. Some riding horses display withdrawn states of inactivity and low responsiveness that resemble the reduced engagement with the environment shown by certain depressed patients. To assess whether these animals are experiencing a depression-like state, we investigated anhedonia - the loss of pleasure, a key symptom of human depression - in 20 withdrawn and non-withdrawn horses from the same stable. The time horses spent being withdrawn appeared unrelated to age or sex, but correlated with time devoted to stereotypic behaviour, a possible marker of lifetime stress. Comparison with data collected 5 years earlier also revealed that horses scored as withdrawn then remained significantly likely to display the behaviour. We measured sucrose intake, a classic measure of anhedonia never previously applied to horses. Flavoured sugar blocks, novel to these subjects, were mounted in each stall
It doesnt slow them down really but they cant grab pieces and throw them the way they would if you just had a bale ring on it.

Cerebellar abiotrophy (CA) is a rare but significant disease in Arabian horses caused by progressive death of the Purkinje cells resulting in cerebellar ataxia characterized by a typical head tremor, jerky head movements and lack of menace response. The specific role of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to support clinical diagnosis has been discussed. However, as yet MR imaging has only been described in one equine CA case. The role of MR morphometry in this regard is currently unknown. Due to the hereditary nature of the disease, genetic testing can support the diagnosis of CA. Therefore, the objective of this study was to perform MR morphometric analysis and genetic testing in four CA-affected Arabian horses and one German Riding Pony with purebred Arabian bloodlines in the third generation. CA was diagnosed pathohistologically in the five affected horses (2 months - 3 years) supported by clinical signs, necropsy, and genetic testing which confirmed the TOE1:g.2171G|A SNP genotype A/A in all CA
The history of horse breeding goes back millennia. Though the precise date is in dispute, humans could have domesticated the horse as far back as approximately 4500 BCE. However, evidence of planned breeding has a more blurry history. It is well known, for example, that the Romans did breed horses and valued them in their armies, but little is known regarding their breeding and husbandry practices: all that remains are statues and artwork. Mankind has plenty of equestrian statues of Roman emperors, horses are mentioned in the Odyssey by Homer, and hieroglyphics and paintings left behind by Egyptians tell stories of pharaohs hunting elephants from chariots. Nearly nothing is known of what became of the horses they bred for hippodromes, for warfare, or even for farming. One of the earliest people known to document the breedings of their horses were the Bedouin of the Middle East, the breeders of the Arabian horse. While it is difficult to determine how far back the Bedouin passed on pedigree ...

It has been estimated that exposure to environmental chemical carcinogens may contribute significantly to the causation of a sizable fraction, perhaps a majority, of human cancers. Human carcinogens act through a variety of genotoxic and non-genotoxic mechanisms. Genotoxic carcinogens can attack biological macromolecules such as DNA and RNA either directly or indirectly through metabolism, resulting in the formation of adducts with these macromolecules. If DNA adducts escape cellular repair mechanisms and persist, they may lead to miscoding, resulting in permanent mutations. Non-genotoxic carcinogens act by the mechanisms such as induction of inflammation, immunosuppression, formation of reactive oxygen species, activation of receptors, and epigenetic silencing. Together, these genotoxic and non-genotoxic mechanisms can alter signal-transduction pathways that finally result in hypermutability, genomic instability, loss of proliferation control, and resistance to apoptosis - some of the ...
The pentose phosphate pathway is a process of glucose turnover that produces NADPH as reducing equivalents and pentoses as essential parts of nucleotides. There are two different phases in the pathway. One is irreversible oxidative phase in which glucose-6P is converted to ribulose-5P by oxidative decarboxylation, and NADPH is generated [MD:M00006]. The other is reversible non-oxidative phase in which phosphorylated sugars are interconverted to generate xylulose-5P, ribulose-5P, and ribose-5P [MD:M00007]. Phosphoribosyl pyrophosphate (PRPP) formed from ribose-5P [MD:M00005] is an activated compound used in the biosynthesis of histidine and purine/pyrimidine nucleotides. This pathway map also shows the Entner-Doudoroff pathway where 6-P-gluconate is dehydrated and then cleaved into pyruvate and glyceraldehyde-3P [MD:M00008 ...

Infection with A. phagocytophilumis a tick-borne infectious disease spread by Ixodes species ticks. This infection often occurs from spring through fall due to increased tick activity during this time of year. Illness usually occurs shortly after the tick bite. Affected horses may suddenly show signs such as appetite loss, fever, lethargy (tiredness), reluctance to move, and fluid accumulation on the lower limbs, which indent when pressed with a finger. Affected horses often develop a fever of 103°F or higher (normal temperature range for adult horses: 99°F to 101.5°F). If your horse suddenly develops these signs, it is important to contact your veterinarian. Usually, only one horse on a property is infected with A. phagocytophilum; however, multiple horses on one property are occasionally affected.. Read More ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - ACUTE PHASE PROTEINS AS A MARKER of RESPIRATORY INFLAMMATION in PRZEWALSKIS HORSE (EQUUS FERUS PRZEWALSKII). AU - Sander, Samantha J.. AU - Joyner, Priscilla H.. AU - Cray, Carolyn. AU - Rotstein, David S.. AU - Aitken-Palmer, Copper. PY - 2016/6/1. Y1 - 2016/6/1. N2 - Acute phase proteins are sensitive markers of inflammation, which are highly conserved across taxa. Although the utility of these proteins are becoming well defined in human and domestic animal medical fields, their role in nondomestic species remains unclear. In this communication, a 20-yr-old Przewalskis horse was presented for unresolving aspiration pneumonia, which cultured a unique Actinomyces-like bacteria. Despite waxing and waning clinical signs and minimal changes on baseline hematologic analysis, protein electrophoresis, serum amyloid A, and surfactant protein D serum concentrations showed changes that more accurately reflected the clinical severity of this case.. AB - Acute phase proteins are sensitive ...
While the American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA) recognizes the therapeutic benefits of the drug furosemide, commonly known as Lasix, to help mitigate the occurrence of exercise-induced pulmonary hemorrhage (EIPH) in racehorses, the AQHA executive committee recently asked the AQHA Animal Welfare Commission to review the proposed prohibition of Lasix for show horses, set to be effective as of Jan. 1, 2018.. Balancing the use of therapeutic medication for the welfare of the horse in different types of competition, such as racing and showing, while minimizing or eliminating performance-enhancing properties of medication compounds has been a challenge in the equine industry. Lasix has been endorsed by several equine groups and the American Association of Equine Practitioners to lessen the occurrence of EIPH in racehorses. Consistent with such groups, the AQHA opposed the latest version of the newly introduced Horseracing Integrity Act of 2017, which would eliminate all race-day medications, ...
Author Summary We utilized the previously generated horse genome sequence and a large SNP database to design an ∼54,000 SNP assay for use in the domestic horse and related species. The utility of this SNP array was demonstrated through genome-wide linkage disequilibrium, inbreeding and genetic distance measurements within breeds, as well as multidimensional scaling and parsimony analysis. Association mapping confirmed a large conserved segment containing the chestnut coat color locus in domestic horses. We also assess the utility of the SNP array in related species, including the Przewalskis Horse, zebras, asses, tapirs, and rhinoceros. This SNP genotyping tool will facilitate many genetics applications in equids, including identification of genes for health and performance traits, and compelling studies of the origins of the domestic horse, diversity within breeds, and evolutionary relationships among related species.
TY - JOUR. T1 - Warmblood fragile foal syndrome type 1 mutation (PLOD1 c.2032G,A) is not associated with catastrophic breakdown and has a low allele frequency in the Thoroughbred breed. AU - Bellone, R. R.. AU - Ocampo, N. R.. AU - Hughes, S. S.. AU - Le, V.. AU - Arthur, R.. AU - Finno, C. J.. AU - Penedo, M. C.T.. PY - 2019/1/1. Y1 - 2019/1/1. N2 - Background: Catastrophic fractures are among the most common cause of fatalities in racehorses. Several factors, including genetics, likely contribute to increased risk for fatal injuries. A variant in the procollagen-lysine, 2-oxoglutarate 5-dioxygenase1 gene (PLOD1 c.2032G,A) was shown to cause Warmblood fragile foal syndrome type 1 (WFFS), a fatal recessive defect of the connective tissue. Screening of multiple horse breeds identified the presence of the WFFS allele in the Thoroughbred. PLOD1 is involved in cross-linking of collagen fibrils and thus could potentially increase the risk of catastrophic breakdown. Objectives: Estimate the frequency ...
The BLM says the range can support 50 horses. The herd twice since 2006 has been rounded up and held in the agencys Boise Wild Horse Corrals after wildfires destroyed rangeland forage.. The agency has said the most recent capture involved 195 horses following a wildfire in August 2010. The BLM in September 2011 released 30 of those horses 13 females and 17 males back onto the range. The agency said a count this spring found the herd had nearly tripled with 71 adults and 12 foals.. Wild horses far exceed U.S. government population goals, and officials say the free-roaming horses that number about 73,000 can face starvation. Captured horses are offered for adoption, but 46,000 are being held at government corrals and pastures costing taxpayers $50 million annually.. Wild horse advocate groups have questioned federal population goals for wild horses as being on the low side.. Suzanne Roy, executive director of American Wild Horse Campaign, said that sterilizing the Idaho herd could have led to the ...
If youve ever tried to braid a squirmy toddlers hair - or even brush it - you have some idea of the challenge that Angela Ferguson often faces at the All American Quarter Horse Congress.. If you ve ever tried to braid a squirmy toddler s hair or even brush it you have some idea of the challenge that Angela Ferguson often faces at the All American Quarter Horse Congress.. Day after day, Ferguson braids or rubber bands horses manes during the nearly monthlong show as her clients bob their heads, shimmy their hindquarters and sometimes even lob a kick toward the two-step ladder she stands on.. It s a really crazy thing to comprehend if you re not into horses, Ferguson said with a laugh last week as she showed off the bands she had put on 7-year-old A Good Cookie the night before.. Ferguson, 24, learned braiding (generally used for horses in English tack) and banding (for western tack) when she began showing horses as a child growing up in Tipp City, north of Dayton. Other competitors admired the ...
But not all is well. As the colt cools down in the test barn following his win, Smith hears Gettinup Morning cough. He approaches and wipes one of the horses nostrils, and the rag comes away stained with blood - Gettinup Morning bled in his first race.. In North America, the majority of thoroughbred racehorses race on the diuretic Lasix (Salix), an increasingly controversial drug used to reduce exercise-induced pulmonary hemorrhage (EIPH), a condition in which small blood vessels break as a result of exertion. Horses who exhibit visible bleeding after training or racing are known as bleeders, and Lasix has been shown to prevent or reduce EIPH in susceptible racehorses. However, the drug is banned in almost all other countries than the US and Canada, on the rationale that Lasix disguises the very condition it treats, weakening the breed when horses are sent to stud. In the US, Lasix is used prophylactically; it is estimated that more than 95% of American thoroughbreds race on the drug, often ...

LIGHT AND BEHAVIOURAL NEEDS:. Dark boxes where horses have little visual contact with other horses are likely to lead to behavioural problems. Box-weaving, wind-sucking and other vices often begin out of boredom. While one extreme approach, advocated by some, involves housing horses in groups, simple approaches such as providing adequate provisions for light and anti-weaving bars so that horses can put their heads out over the stable door can be beneficial.. Horses have evolved as gregarious and free ranging animals. They spend approximately 60% of their time grazing and continually move over their home range living together in close knit herds. Stables horses are restricted to one or two hours exercise per day, have restricted social interaction and fed concentrated rations which are quickly consumed. In these conditions stables horses can develop STEREOTYPIES, characterised by bouts of frequently repeated, invariant and apparently purposeless activities. Examples of these include licking, crib ...
One of the wild horse supporters found in the Calgary Herald archives this letter written in 1983 by Norma Bearcroft. At the time there was another group trying to save the wild horses both in BC and Alberta. She is also the author of a book on Canadas wild horses. It is really interesting…

Appellant, Donald Roberson, appeals from the May 20, 2003 judgment of the Franklin County Court of Common Pleas affirming an order of appellee, the Ohio State Racing Commission (Commission or appellee), sanctioning appellant after one of his horses tested positive for a prohibited substance. For the reasons that follow, we affirm.. Appellant has been a licensed trainer of thoroughbred horses since 1971. During his career, appellant has trained thousands of horses that have raced at 60 racetracks in California, Ohio, West Virginia, and other states. Until this case, appellant had never been accused of, or had his license suspended for, any medication violations. Appellant is known in the horse racing industry as a person of the highest character and has a reputation of the highest integrity. The trial court noted that appellant had a spotless record and was a well-respected trainer of thoroughbred horses.. On April 18, 2001, appellants horse, First Choice, finished first in the sixth race at ...
Small-scale components of the equine hoof wall were tested to determine their mechanical roles in the morphological hierarchy. Macroscale tensile tests conducted on samples of the inner wall tubules and intertubular material showed a sixfold difference in mean initial stiffnesses (0.47 and 0.08 GPa, respectively), indicating that the inner wall tubules stiffen the wall along its longitudinal axis. The similarity in material properties of tubule and intertubular samples from the mid-wall suggests that tubules in this region offer only minor reinforcement along the longitudinal axis.Microscale tests conducted on rows of keratin strands from the inner wall tubules and intertubular material, and on intertubular keratin strands of the mid-wall, produced estimates of the stiffnesses of the hydrated matrix (0.03 GPa) and intermediate filament (IF; 3-4 GPa) components of the nanoscale (α -keratin) composite. The results from these tests also suggest that the properties of the keratin composite vary ...
It would have been nice to finish with a bang, said Molnar, who competed aboard Rebel, a 20-year-old Quarter Horse gelding and cattle penning veteran. But we got er done, and thats what counts.. Thorlakson, who had no Stampede titles to her credit on Canada Day 2009, now has three. She was the only two-time cattle penning champion at the 09 Stampede, as a member of the winning 10 Class and 7 Class teams. And its an eight-year-old quarter horse gelding known as Docs Little Sky, whom she affectionately calls Little Man, whos carried her to victory all three times.. This feels pretty awesome. Its pretty exciting, she said. I had really good luck last year, but we definitely had to earn it today.. Team Cattle Penning, a race against the clock, gives a team of three riders on horseback 60 seconds to separate three specifically identified cattle from a herd of 30 and direct them into a 16-foot-by-24-foot pen at the opposite end of the arena. Teamwork is key, with all three riders working ...
Even so, Dr. Hess said, outright nutrient deficiencies in recreational horses are rare if pastures or hay are of average quality. Whats more common are problems that arise when too much food is given, or if rich food, such as lush pasture when it first greens up in the spring, is offered all at once. Horses that have eaten too much fresh grass in one go can develop a digestion-related inflammatory condition known as founder (laminitis), which causes the all-important connective tissue in the hooves to soften and weaken. Foundered horses can be rehabilitated, but the condition can be fatal when the horse becomes too lame to stand.. ​We know that 56% of the founder cases are related to dietary issues, and about 48% are related to feeding on lush pasture that is rich in sugars,​​ Dr. Hess said.. Dr. Hess said knowing breed differences and differences among individual horses are critically important. Horses known as easy keepers, in other words those that thrive on less and poorer feed ...
We were asked about these pictures from exactly two years ago. We have re-shared. (Elko) The ongoing Owyhee Complex roundup in Nevada has trapped 405 wild horses so far with a total of 1600 expected. A section of the operation concluded yesterday with the release of 101, 52 suds and 49 mares, back to the…
An 8-month-old female thoroughbred foal was presented showing signs of colic. The foal was anxious,exhibiting signs of abdominal pain and distention. The foal had tachycardia (120 beats/min), tachypnea (40breaths/min). Blood samples obtained for haematologic and serum biochemistry analysis that showed a PCVof 30% and a TPP of 70 g/L. The peritoneal fluid analysis revealed a clear fluid with mild elevation of totalprotein. The early treatment involved intravenous administration of a balanced electrolyte solution andanalgesics. The signs of abdominal pain were progressive and nonresponsive to treatments. Therefore,exploratory laparatomy was elected. During the exploratory laparatomy a faecalith impaction of small colonwas detected. The mass was manipulated, macerated and milked toward the rectum and anus. It was finallyremoved via the anus without enterotomy incision. Midline incision and skin incision were sutured routinely.The foal made an uneventful recovery
The Jockey Club Thoroughbred Incentive Program (T.I.P.), which sponsors Thoroughbred-only classes and divisions and high point Thoroughbred awards at open horse shows and competitions, today announced the recipients of its two non-competition awards for 2012: the T.I.P. Young Rider of the Year Award and the T.I.P. Thoroughbred of the Year Award. Created and announced in October 2011, T.I.P. recognizes and rewards the versatility of the Thoroughbred through sponsorship of Thoroughbred classes and high point awards at sanctioned horse shows. The Jockey Club committed $100,000 to T.I.P for the pilot program in 2012, for which 167 horse shows from 26 states and two Canadian provinces were approved. The Thoroughbred of the Year Award recognizes a Thoroughbred that has excelled in a non-competitive career, such as equine-assisted therapy or police work. This year s recipient is Maud Star, aka Aspen, a 1989 gelding who raced 32 times and won $9,587 in his four years of racing. Aspen is a therapeutic ...
Ive heard it all … Youve lost your place in the herd, she doesnt respect you. She looks fine. You need to ride her more. Shes smart, but shes lazy. Its her hocks. Its her stifle. If I were you, Id sell her and get a horse you can ride.. I heard all the above and much more over the years of trying to find a diagnosis for my 1999 Quarter Horse mare, purchased in 2001. Doc Bar, Three Bars, Poco Bueno, and more great horses all lined up in her pedigree, and all the potential in the world, but I could barely get one good day of riding out of her. It took me ten years, but I recently figured out that she has been afflicted all this time with something called Polysaccharide Storage Myopathy or PSSM (referred to as EPSM in draft horse breeds). I and my horse are not alone: the horse world is slowly learning that this is a fairly common disease in certain breeds that very often goes undiagnosed. Unbeknownst to me, for the ten years I was searching for a name to attach to whatever my horse ...
Published: May 1, 2014 11:22 am ET. No Comments , Jump to Comments. Indiana on Wednesday became the latest state to adopt all of the national uniform medication rules, penalties and testing reforms developed by the Racing Medication and Testing Consortium (RMTC) and adopted as model rules by the Association of Racing Commissioners International (RCI).. Home to Indiana Grand Racing and Casino (which conducts Thoroughbred and Quarter Horse racing) and Hoosier Park (Standardbreds), Indiana is set to implement the new rules on May 15.. The medication schedule and penalties-formally known as the Controlled Therapeutic Medication Schedule and the Model Medication Violations Penalties System, respectively-were unanimously approved at Wednesdays regular monthly meeting of the Indiana Horse Racing Commission. Indianas regulations currently meet or exceed the RCI model rule requiring third-party administration of furosemide (commonly known as Lasix) - a key aspect of the reforms - through their ...
The degree of lameness of 265 randomly selected three-year-old standardbred trotters was assessed on a fixed point scale with 0 indicating soundness and 5 indicating that the animals were not weightbearing. Two variables were used to describe the signs of lameness; one was the continuous variable: the sum of the initial lameness score and the lameness scores after separate flexion tests of the carpal, stifle/tarsal and phalangeal joints and the second was the bivariate variable; the ratio of lame/sound horses. The mean (sd) heritability of the continuous variable was estimated to be 0.25 (0.21), and the model was significant (P=0.05) with a determination coefficient of R2=0.14. For the bivariate variable, lame/sound, the heritability was estimated to be 0.33. The breeding values for the 16 sires in the analyses ranged from 72.2 to 130.5. No influence of gender on the prevalence of lameness was detected.. ...
