Introduction

Feeding a healthy horse is a relatively straight forward endeavor: maximize high-quality forages, supply NRC daily recommended levels of protein, vitamins, and minerals for that class of horse, and feed concentrates according to energetic requirements. Unfortunately, feeding protocols for horses with specific medical conditions are not so simple or well defined. This is due to the fact that the majority of published research in equine nutrition focuses on the requirements of the “healthy” horse, but scientific research related to feeding the “sick” horse is limited. The research and information that is available, combined with practical field experience, gives equine veterinarians, technicians, and nutritionists a solid basis for outlining feeding protocols that will both theoretically and functionally support horses suffering from a particular medical condition.

Notes From Inside The Corral (March 2014)

Bobbie as a spectator2
With the arrival of March, spring can’t be too far away; at least according to the calendar. The seed packets and potting soil, along with grass seed and fertilizer are on the shelves at our favorite stores. The tack catalogs all have a spring theme in their advertising photos and the biggest harbinger of spring, the annual Ohio Equine Affaire, is just a month away. This month’s issue of the Corral once again provides our subscribers with an Equine Affaire Preview insert. If you plan on attending this mega horse expo, take some time to check out the insert’s four-day calendar and the biographies of this year’s clinicians. As always, thank you to Equine Affaire, our advertisers and our own Corral staff who made the insert possible.
