WASHINGTON, D.C. - The Bureau of Land Management announced today that the Secretaries of Interior and Agriculture have made selections for the three open positions on its nine-member National Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Board. Dr. Sue M. McDonnell of West Chester, Pennsylvania, has been appointed for the category of wild horse and burro research; Fred T. Woehl, Jr., of Harrison, Arkansas, has been appointed for the category of public interest (with special knowledge of equine behavior); and Dr. Robert E. Cope, DVM, of Salmon, Idaho, has been appointed for the category of natural resources management. Each individual will serve a three-year term on the Advisory Board.

MINI-MICROCHIPS for HORSES GET THUMBS UP
By Christa Lesté-Lasserre

The techie trend toward tinier-than-tiny micro-anything has now hit the world of equine identification. Horses necessitating microchip identification—a requirement in many countries, including the entire European Union—can now receive a “mini-microchip” implant.

Roughly 70% the size of the standard microchip, the mini-microchip “obviously works very well” and has clear benefits for the horse, explained Christine Aurich, DVM, PhD, Head of the Graf Lehndorff Institute for Equine Science in Neustadt, Germany.

“It’s certainly better to insert a smaller needle than the one that was used for the ‘old’ chip,” Aurich said. “Therefore, the mini-chip should substitute the old transponder from now on.”

Why a Veterinarian Should Vaccinate Your Horse
Photo: Anne M Eberhardt
Why a Veterinarian Should Vaccinate Your Horse

In order to be safe and effective, vaccines need to be properly handled (which includes being stored at the correct temperature), given in the right location, and given in the proper dosage.

Q. Why can't we give our horses their vaccines ourselves? My barn friend said my shots won't count if I give them myself.

A.Thank you for sending in your question about vaccinating your horse. Vaccinations are critical to help protect your horse against debilitating and potentially life-threatening diseases such as rabies, West Nile virus, Eastern equine encephalomyelitis, and Western equine encephalomyelitis, along with some additional diseases such as equine herpesvirus, equine influenza, and Potomac horse fever.

Horses Set to Gain Benefits from Stem Cell Advance
Horses Set to Gain Benefits from Stem Cell Advance

Horses suffering from neurological conditions similar to those that affect humans could be helped by a breakthrough from stem cell scientists.

Researchers who are the first to create working nerve cells from horse stem cells say the advance may pave the way for cell therapies that target conditions similar to motor neuron disease.

The research could also benefit horses affected by grass sickness, a neurological condition that affects around 600 horses a year in the UK alone.

Time to Say Goodbye
Time to Say Goodbye
by Marcia King

There comes a time in nearly all horse owners' lives when the last, best thing they can do for their horses is to release them from the agony of an untreatable condition or terminal illness via euthanasia. In some situations, the decision to euthanize is clear--a painful, devastating accident from which there is no recovery; an acute, fatal disease from which the horse is constantly suffering; or age taking away the horse's ability to move about and live comfortably. But often, the horse's injury or terminal illness is one where it might be difficult for the owner to determine if there is enough quality of life to offset a horse's discomfort or diminished lifestyle, or whether the horse has spiraled downward to the point where there is nothing much left in life for the horse to enjoy.

The whole painful process--deciding when the time has arrived, disposing of remains, dealing with grief--can be made less stressful when everything involved with the euthanasia process is understood and decisions are planned ahead of time.

Feeding the Top Performer
Feeding the Top Performer

By Juliet M. Getty, Ph.D.

We all admire the equine athlete, the captivating blend of speed, control, grace and endurance. But the added stress of performance requires an optimal diet, with plenty of energy from carbohydrates and fats, high quality protein, adequate minerals, and vitamins.


Carbohydrates, the cornerstone

Carbohydrates supply the foundation for energy needs and fuel quick power bursts. The most significant source of carbohydrates should be forage, fed free-choice to provide an amount equal to 2.5 to 3.5% of his body weight. This is central to your horses’ health. When forage is consistently available (beyond what you believe they’ll initially eat), horses will ultimately self-regulate their intake and eat only what their bodies need. Since the horse’s stomach continually produces acid, an empty stomach will lead to discomfort, ulcers, and irregular hormonal changes.

One horse has died and four others in Lane County test positive for the neurological form of equine herpevirus type-1.

Oregon Department of Agriculture

One horse has died and four others from the same stable in Lane County, Oregon, have tested positive for a neurological form of equine herpesvirus type-1. All horses on the property have been quarantined and those showing symptoms of the disease are being treated. There is no indication that the virus has spread to other horses beyond those being quarantined. The Oregon state veterinarian is praising quick work by local veterinarians and Oregon State University’s Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory in detecting the virus quickly and taking steps to limit any spread.

Dr. Getty Advises: Horses need supplemental salt year round
Dr. Getty Advises: Horses need supplemental salt year round

Regardless of the weather, horses require a daily supply of salt. In cold seasons, salt helps promote enough water consumption to prevent dehydration. In warm seasons, salt replaces what is lost from perspiration. A full-sized horse requires at least one ounce (two level tablespoons or 30 ml) of salt each day for maintenance; this much provides 12 grams of sodium. Heat, humidity, and exercise increase the horse’s need.

There are several ways to provide salt. The best ways include offering free-choice granulated salt, or adding salt to your horse’s meal (for palatability, limit the amount to no more than 1 tablespoon per meal). A salt block should be available should your horse want more. A plain, white salt block is preferable, but many horses do not lick it adequately since it can be irritating to the tongue. Mineralized blocks often go untouched due to their bitter taste; however a Himalayan salt block is often preferred.

PPID Progression Can be Slowed Down
PPID Progression Can be Slowed Down

By Juliet M. Getty, Ph.D.

Equine Cushing’s disease, scientifically referred to as pituitary pars intermedia dysfunction (PPID), is typically an age-related neurodegenerative disorder. Many horses will develop Cushing’s as they get older, but the symptoms come on so gradually, the disease often goes unrecognized. Usually around the age of 15 the risk becomes greater; however, younger and younger horses are developing PPID, which is a disturbing trend.

PPID is a progressive disorder, meaning it gets progressively worse over time. Cushing’s is not fatal in and of itself, but rather from the conditions it can lead to if left untreated, such as infections, muscle wasting, colic, and of course, laminitis. There is no cure, only treatment. However, by reducing oxidative stress, it is possible to slow down its progression

Journal of Pain Management Proposes Drug-free Options
Journal of Pain Management Proposes Drug-free Options

There is an interesting article in this month’s issue of The Journal of Pain Management. The article is titled: The case for over-the-counter shortwave therapy: safe and effective devices for pain management. If you click here you can download the pdf file.

The article was written by Ian Rawe, PhD, the Director of Clinical Research for BioElectronics Corporation. Dr. Rawe makes the case for more widespread use of pulsed shortwave medical devices to overcome the dosage limitations, costs, and side-effects of pharmacological-based pain relief. For decades, physicians have used pulsed shortwave therapy in hospitals and clinics to reduce pain and inflammation and accelerate healing. BioElectronics innovation miniaturizes the delivery mode and lowers the power level while honing the signal to provide a low cost superior long lasting medical device that is an effective pain therapy.

Barn & Stable Management
The Scoop on Wood Pellet Bedding

For many years, straw was the preferred bedding for most horse owners. It was dust free, comfortable and easy to compost. According to Brett Scott, PhD, extension horse specialist at Texas A&M University, straw also made a good bed because it dried well and stayed fairly clean if manure is picked out often, but it was not as absorbent as some other types of bedding. And was definitely more labor intensive to maintain. "It can be difficult to clean; you typically have to remove a large amount to clean out the manure and, thus, end up using more total bedding," says Scott. Over the years, several other types of stall bedding have been developed, included shavings and, one of the newest, wood pellet bedding.

​​A Horse Can Hurt You And Can Even Kill You
Memorial day three years ago I was ready to reacquaint myself with my original mentor, Dr John Steiner. He had an equine practice in Mahopac, NY and I would go on rounds with him.

I remember him coming to the farm where I worked in Bedford Hills, NY with a new product. It was a powdered medication that came in a foil package. “Just add one of these to the horse’s feed and it will take care of the worms in it.” That was 1973.

Managing the Changing Needs of Older Horses
Managing the Changing Needs of Older Horses

Time takes its toll in predictable ways, providing guidelines for managing the changing needs of older horses.

In the fall of 1993, I escaped the pressures of finding my first office job by fleeing to Australia for a year and working as a groom at a show-jumping stable in Western Australia. My charges included a transient group of green sale horses, a few seasoned show horses and Convoy, a 20-year-old grand prix horse. The old campaigner was the quintessential grumpy grandfather. A talented jumper in the ring, he was a grizzled old guy who could be downright cantankerous when handled behind the scenes.

Feed Management and Developmental Orthopedic Disease in Horses
Feed Management and Developmental Orthopedic Disease in Horses
By Dr. Joe Pagan

Over a four-year period, scientists at Kentucky Equine Research studied the incidence of developmental orthopedic disease (DOD) on a single large commercial Thoroughbred farm in Kentucky. For the purpose of this study, developmental orthopedic disease was defined as osteochondrotic lesions occurring in the fetlock, hock, shoulder, or stifle.

Other factors besides mineral intake must have played a role in the development of skeletal lesions in these foals. During this period, the farm produced a total of 271 foals. Foals were weighed monthly on a portable electronic scale. Lesions were initially diagnosed radiographically after a foal displayed either lameness or joint effusion. Often this diagnosis was confirmed by arthroscopy. Other manifestations of DOD such as physitis, acquired contracted flexor tendons, and angular limb deformities were not included in this study since they were more difficult to quantify. No foals were diagnosed as wobblers during this four-year period.

The Sanctuary Equine Sports Therapy & Rehabilitation Center Gets Sassy Around Barrels

Ocala, FL (January 21, 2014) - “Oh, she loves the cold water leg spa! She puts her head down and plays in it,” said Cheryl Colman with a grin, referring to her daughter's 15 year old Quarter Horse barrel racing mare, Haidas Special Feelins, or 'Sassy' for short.

Born and raised at the Colman farm, the mare has continued the family's riding legacy since her reins were passed from mother to daughter. With 13-year-old Courtney on her back, the sassy pair have been scorching cloverleaf patterns across the South, amassing more than $7,000 in earnings last year.

“We've always used The Sanctuary,” Colman said, explaining how they first learned about the Ocala, Florida-based equine sports therapy and rehabilitation center while looking for a solution to problems of 'stocking up' that plagued their training program on what she could only describe as “Georgia's concrete ground.”
