DON’T GIVE UP ON HUMANITY… AND GOD!

by Crystal Lyons

It seems the last few articles I’ve written lately are all telling about something God did to rescue me. Well, here we go again… I was floating the Poudre River in Fort Collins, Colorado with several girlfriends. They were all in tubes. Me and my “river wise sense” KNEW it was going to be freezing water, so my weapon of choice was to take my kayak. As we all boarded our respective floating gadgets, I was thoroughly enjoying their screams and exclamations about the “FREEZING water!!” I got in my red kayak… with my red kayak cooler towing behind… my phone sealed safely in the water-tight phone bag tied rather hurriedly to my kayak. Oh yes… I’m cool. Just ask me. As I paddled in and out of all the girls who were trying (and failing) to keep their back sides elevated above water level, I smugly commented how I wasn’t the LEAST BIT COLD. I made a few smart remarks once or twice… OK, I might’ve lost count. But the day was going along splendidly. I was enjoying hitting the short spurts of rapids and then tooling around in the slower areas until they caught up in their tubes, screaming as the rapids splashed them with more ice cold water. I was coming up on another little channel that hit a rock embankment. I knew I should angle my kayak, but decided to just let the side of the kayak bump along the rocks. Bad choice. Before I knew what was happening, the front hung in a crevice and the thrust of the current flipped me. I was told later that all the girls were having a good laugh. I never heard them. It’s hard to hear under water and besides that, I was busy grabbing paddle and kayak and getting everything into calmer waters where I could re-mount. They were right… the water was COLD! But it’s amazing how nonconcerned you can be about temperatures when you’re busy as a cat in a litter box. It wasn’t until we finished our float that I realized my phone that I had tied so casually to my kayak was gone. There’s no need to go looking for it. It wasn’t floating and no telling WHERE it was. Hung up on a root wad or stuck deep down at the dam where we had to get out. Or it could’ve gone over the dam and be well on its way towards the Mississippi River. Only God knew. I had the clarity of mind to “plead the blood of Jesus” over it and claim that “nobody who’s dishonest can find my phone, IF it’s to be found”. Did I mention within the phone case was a credit card, my driver’s license, and a little cash?

Day one passed with no word. Day three, I decided I’d better go buy another phone. Five days later, my sons get a call. Someone found my phone! Lying on the river bottom, phone still perfectly dry! A family was floating the river and their son just happened to see the red, white and blue colors of the American Flag design on the phone bag. I had given up! I knew only God could cause my phone to be found, but didn’t actually believe it would be! Oh me of little faith! I talked to the lady and she graciously mailed the phone to my office. All intact. Of ALL the people in this world… how many could be trusted to do the right thing? Yes, God STILL works miracles, and there are STILL honest people who can be trusted!

Is it, Or Isn’t It Colic? That’s the trouble with colic: You just can’t tell what you’re dealing with. Sometimes it’s pretty obvious something is painfully wrong and the veterinarian should be summoned. Other times mild clinical signs might accurately reflect a mild colic that easily and quickly responds to minimal management without a vet even seeing the horse. Then there are those times when mild clinical signs don’t indicate the severity of a problem that could result in death if treatment is delayed. Do you know what to do–and just as importantly, what not to do–if your horse displays vague, mild, or serious signs of what might be colic? How do you handle the situation? Actions to take/avoid with your horse’s recovery plan? How to minimize the risk for colic in the first place? The following are 33 tips to use as guidelines.

When Your Horse First Shows Signs of Colic... 1. DO check your horse’s vital signs.“Check your horse’s heart rate and rectal temperature,” suggests Dr. James Carmalt. “Also check his hooves for heat and his rump muscles for tightness: These may reflect laminitis and tying-up, respectively, which can mimic colic/abdominal pain.” 2. DO look for the presence of feces in the stall or pen, adds Carmalt. Absent or reduced amounts of manure could indicate a problem. 3. DO call your veterinarian immediately, regardless of the severity or vagueness of the 10

signs. Waiting too long could allow minor problems to become severe and severe problems to become untreatable. Relate your horse’s vital signs and describe his clinical signs. “The vet can ask questions over the phone to better assess whether a veterinarian needs to examine the animal at that time or if the owner can just monitor the horse and summon the veterinarian if signs worsen,” says Dr. Amy Plummer Weatherly. 4. DON’T use a wait-and-see approach before talking with your veterinarian. “There is definitely danger in delaying calling the veterinarian, especially with some forms of colic,” Weatherly warns. “If a horse is painful because of excess fluid in his stomach, the horse could rupture his stomach; once this occurs, there is no treatment that will save him. This can happen in a relatively short amount of time, within hours from the onset of clinical signs.” 5. DO closely monitor your horse for as long as it takes. “Many people have the misconception that they can go and do errands and come back in a couple of hours to see how the horse is doing,” says Fugaro. “Your horse’s clinical signs and condition can worsen very, very quickly. You’ve got to check your horse every 15 to 20 minutes.” 6. DO walk your horse, if it’s safe and recommended by your veterinarian, to stimulate gut motility and to prevent injury from rolling. “Greater than 50% of mild colics will clear up with just that (walking),” says Dr. Daniel P. Keenan. He recommends 45-60 minutes of brisk walking. However, walking too much can exhaust a horse, so only walk

VOLUME 6 | ISSUE 4 2020

him enough to keep him from going down and rolling. 7. DON’T exercise aggressively, as vigorous exercise slows gut motility and can lead to exhaustion when the horse needs to retain fluid and energy, Fugaro states. 8. DON’T permit access to feed (hay, grass, or grain), as food could exacerbate the problem. Even when colicking, some horses will still want to eat, perhaps even gorge themselves, as a response to pain. 9. DO withhold access to water until the veterinarian can examine the horse and pass a stomach tube. If the stomach is distended, allowing the horse to drink could result in a ruptured stomach. 10. DON’T medicate without your veterinarian’s approval, as pain medications can mask clinical signs, making it more difficult to get a timely, accurate diagnosis. 11. DON’T overmedicate. “An appropriate dose of Banamine (flunixin meglumine) as recommended by the veterinarian should last 24 hours,” Fugaro explains, although some veterinarians point out that Banamine often requires administration every 12 hours at the appropriate dose. “If the horse is not responding to a painkiller, it is not because you didn’t use enough medication, it’s because the condition is beyond what that medication can do.” Furthermore, overdosing can cause gastric ulceration, colitis, and renal problems, although these don’t occur for several days. If colic persists more than 20 to 30 minutes after Banamine administration, call your veterinarian. Lack of response to pain

medication is a key indicator for the need to refer for further evaluation. 12. DON’T administer anything via a nasogastric tube or syringe mineral oil into the horse’s mouth. If done incorrectly and the horse aspirates it into the lungs, he could die, warns Weatherly. 13. DON’T administer enemas. “The rectum of a horse is extremely fragile, and you can get a rectal tear,” says Fugaro. “Rectal tears lead to a secondary peritonitis (inflammation of the abdominal lining), which is often fatal.” 14. DO keep your horse contained in a safe area, such as a small pasture or large box stall, where he can’t get cast or knock into things, suggests Weatherly. “Separate a mare from her young foal to prevent injury to the foal. If possible, move the foal to an area where the mare can still see her baby.” Just realize that this scenario might create more anxiety for the mare, so it will be a management decision that requires sound judgment. 15. DO start thinking about preparing for trailering at the onset of clinical signs, Keenan says. “Who can you call to borrow a trailer or to help you with transport? Are the trailer tires inflated? Is your trailer operable and ready to go?” Ideally, you should have a contingency plan for trailering prior to encountering a colic that might require referral. It’s also a good idea to maintain your truck/trailer so they are ready in an emergency such as this. 16. DO trailer the horse, if possible, in a trailer without dividers. This reduces the chance of your horse getting cast under a partition, Weatherly says. However, many colicking horses trailer fine, and the confinement the divider provides seems to help. This is something that needs to be thought through prior to an emergency. 17. DON’T ride in the trailer. “It’s unsafe,” says Weatherly. “There is nothing you can do, anyway, to help once your horse is loaded.” 18. DON’T deviate from your veterinarian’s treatment plan, cautions Carmalt. Administer medications correctly and follow the recommended protocol for the complete duration prescribed. If you have concerns, ask your veterinarian before making any changes. 19. DO monitor the incision site daily if your horse required surgery. Call your veterinarian if there are adverse changes in your horse’s appetite, behavior, demeanor, or VOLUME 6 | ISSUE 4 2020

in the appearance of the incision. 20. DON’T place your hands or fingers on the surgical incision. “This increases the risk of incisional infection,” Carmalt states. However, the horse probably shouldn’t be released from the hospital as long as this potential remains. 21. DO discuss postoperative complications and home-care instructions with your vet before going home with your postop horse, urges Weatherly. Get a clear understanding of what you’re supposed to do. 22. DO maintain a consistent feeding protocol and introduce feed changes gradually. “The most common association with colic is a change in feed or hay batch within the prior two weeks,” says Keenan. When switching to a new food source, try to do so gradually over at least 10 days. 23. DO feed frequently. Says Weatherly, “Multiple smaller meals are generally better for the digestive tract than one or two large meals.” The most important part of feeding is consistency with the total amount of feed (energy) given to the horse each day and sticking with a routine. 24. DO forego grain over forage. “Horses’ intestinal tracts are not made to digest grain,” Keenan says. In fact, high-grain diets are linked to increased incidence of colic as well as founder, obesity, and other disorders. “The only horses that need grain are those that lose weight despite being fed goodquality hay 24/7 or those that are in a very demanding exercise schedule.” 25. DO encourage drinking to reduce risk of impaction colic. Provide access to warm water in the winter and cool water in the summer. Tempt horses that routinely don’t drink much by mixing ample amounts of water into grain, gradually increasing the water:grain ratio. “You can slowly increase the water to the point where the horse will drink a whole bucket of water to get to a half pound of grain,” says Keenan. “Do that twice a day, and you’ve got them drinking two buckets of water a day.” Do not allow the grain to ferment. 26. DO provide regular exercise. “Keeping an exercise routine consistent is beneficial,” says Weatherly. This includes regular turnout, as well. Avoid “weekend warrior” activities or intense bouts of exercise followed by long periods without exercise. 27. DO maintain an approved parasite

HorseNRanchMag.com

control routine. “Your veterinarian can determine an appropriate program based on the pasture and age of your horse,” Weatherly says. Research suggests strategic parasite control is optimal; owners should contact their vets to design a program based on fecal egg counts and pasture management. Nonstrategic rotational deworming causes parasite resistance to anthelmintic (parasitekilling) drugs and is no longer recommended. 28. DO take steps to reduce ingestion of sand. Keep hay off sandy surfaces by placing rations in a manger, cut-down garbage can or rain barrel (ensuring there are no sharp edges), or on a cement pad or rubber mat swept clean of sand. If your horse likes to pull his hay out of the container and eat it off the ground, lay mats around the container. 29. DO check stool samples of horses prone to sand colic. “Put about two cups of manure in a gallon Ziploc bag, fill the bag with water, close the bag tightly, then shake it up until all of the manure is dissolved,” Keenan advises. “Hold the bag by one corner so the opposite corner is hanging lowest. Tap the bag and the sand will settle out in the lower corner. If your horse has more than half a teaspoon, he’s positive for sand ingestion. If you get a negative, repeat the test three or four times over a three-day period to make sure.” 30. DO administer psyllium products, according to your vet’s instructions, if your horse has a sand burden, suggests Keenan. Keep your horse off sandy areas until the problem clears. 31. DO consider management changes if your horse has colicked before. “Ask your veterinarian if there are specific things you can do to decrease the chance of colic,” says Weatherly. “For example, a feed or housing change.” 32. DO consider gastric ulcer prevention methods for highly stressed horses or performance horses, per veterinary instructions, says Keenan. “Make sure these horses get endoscopic exams, as ulcers are a common cause of mild colic.” 33. DO consider getting major medical (not just surgical) insurance to cover the costs of advanced medical and surgical care for your horse. It is not as expensive as you might think and can save you the stress of wondering where to come up with a large sum of money to save your horse.

Trail riding offers an escape to beautiful, wild places — but also brings with it a responsibility to keep those places pristine and to respect the experiences of other visitors. Here are a few tips to help you become an upstanding citizen of the trails.

ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY One thing that has always been part of the equestrian ethic is personal responsibility, whether it’s just a day ride or an extended back country adventure. Before heading onto the trails, learn about the area, gather appropriate equipment (depending upon the length and remoteness of your ride) and be prepared to take care of yourself. Whether you’re day riding or camping in backcountry areas for days on end, things can go wrong— not only could you be in danger, but other people may have to shoulder the challenge of bailing you out. A well-executed trip is a satisfaction to you and not a burden to others.

RESPECT OTHER USERS We’re all members of one big trail family seeking quality experiences. We must learn to share. Our motivations are no different from those of other trail users regardless of our mode of travel. Here are my top three ways that we can show other users the respect they deserve. 1. Pick up your poop … at the trailhead - Having an equine doesn’t give you priority over other people enjoying the trails or the trailhead. Recognize that everyone has the right to enjoy the outdoors. Please don’t leave manure laying around the trailhead. Yes, it’s grass. It’s also a congestion point with many people and animals in one spot. A poo filled parking area gives the impression that all horsemen are slobs and gives credence to arguments that equine use should be restricted. 2. Know who has right of way … with common sense - Basic traffic rules keep things moving smoothly and 16

safely on the trails. When going downhill, yield to those coming up. Yes, mountain bikers and hikers should yield to equestrians, although, in practice, it can often be easier to let them go by. Yielding means establishing communication, being prepared to stop if necessary, and passing safely. A friendly “howdy” goes a long way! 3. Be a good dog … owner - Dogs can leave their mark on the outdoors, in more ways than one. Responsible dog owners obey the rules, which differ from area to area. Are dogs allowed on the trail? Do they need to stay on leash? Keep off-leash dogs in sight and under voice control to keep them from stressing wildlife—or other trail users who don’t like being jumped on, barked at or attacked.

PROTECT THE ENVIRONMENT Trail riding and horse camping means spending time in the great outdoors. Getting prepared for those adventures means that you’re going to hear the phrase “Leave No Trace” as often as you hear “the Ten Essentials.” What does it mean? Simply put, it’s the best practices we should follow to enjoy and protect our natural spaces. Here are my top 4 ways help protect the trails and areas that we love. 1. Stay on the trail - Ride straight through those muddy stretches of trail, and don’t cut switchbacks. Skirting mucky spots or taking shortcuts widens the tread, hastens erosion and scars the landscape with a maze of HorseNRanchMag.com

“social trails.” Mud can usually be avoided with a bit of planning. Know which trails get muddy and simply seek out drier areas if possible. 2. Don’t litter - Pack out all of your trash and make an effort to pick up whatever garbage you find along the way. Yes, this may require to you to dismount. It’s good exercise, enjoy it. 3. Honor trail restrictions -  Seasonal closures and other rules might keep you temporarily off your favorite trail, but they’re in place for good reasons, like reducing erosion and protecting wildlife populations. 4. Give back - Trails don’t just happen. While equestrians can be credited with developing many of the nation’s earliest trails, the fact is that today horse riders must work to protect the access that used to be a given. Our theme song used to be “Home, Home on the Range,”. Now it’s changed to “Don’t Fence Me In.” Volunteer with organizations that build and maintain trails, and advocates for equestrian use, or otherwise works to preserve our natural spaces. Volunteering also builds valuable ties to land managers and to other trail-user groups, like hikers and mountain bikers. Every user group has a stake in trails. It benefits all of us in the long run to get along and share these resources.

PALM PARTNERSHIP TRAINING™ Building a Partnership with Your Horse

Why is Western Dressage Such a Popular New Discipline? By Lynn Palm This article really begins with a story. In 1997, I tried to upgrade my business of training and competing with horses in multiple disciplines into something else by changing my approach to basic training. I tried to use the term “Dressage Principles” as a basis for Palm Partnership Training’s teaching and education guidelines. Using the word “dressage” hurt our educational merit in the beginning. I would have people come up to me at horse expos, and write letters, emails, and Facebook messages noting that they were Western riders and “didn’t do” dressage. Others said that dressage is too difficult to ride, and they could never achieve it. People would even make comments saying, “I am a trail rider, and I don’t ride dressage!” Hearing this over and over made my husband Cyril, farm manager and friend Marie-Frances and me all agree we shouldn’t use the term “Dressage Principles” as a basis for our training and teaching methods at that time. So we didn’t. Ironically, 15 years later people started coming to us and saying things like, “We take dressage lessons and ride western!” and “I want to learn dressage because I know it is going to make me a better rider for my horse.” We agree it wasn’t the right time back then to

introduce such a strong term, but now it is part of the Palm Partnership Training fundamentals. Dressage principles truly allow you to become the best partner for your horse! I am truly blessed to have dressage as my first influence in riding and training horses. Cyril also learned dressage as his basis for riding. Cyril is from Europe where dressage is taught to all riders before they advance to jumping or 3-day event riding. “Dressage” is a French word that means “training” a horse. It is the TRUE natural horsemanship of riding and training a horse, because it allows us to truly understand what the horse is telling us and how to tell the horse what we want. These are the main reasons why western riders are so excited about this new discipline. They are realizing all the natural horsemanship techniques that we Americans are coming up with are both good and bad. However, we should also follow the dressage principles of classical dressage because it has already proven successful for centuries. When I learned to ride in the dressage saddle, I would go home and ride Western the same way. NO difference! It really works! Western riders are looking to train a willing horse and not train through submission. Harmony with the horse is what horse owners want whether they are a recreational rider or show ring competitor. This is the beauty of western dressage and why it is going to grow and become even more popular. The best part of western dressage is that it is helps people learn the correct ethics of horsemanship and how to train a willing horse. The bottom line is that people want to learn more about correct riding and training. Dressage will give you the tools to achieve this correctness. It is all in following the Training Pyramid and the dressage levels.

There are western dressage tests you can access at http:// westerndressageassociation.org/. The perfect way to learn is to practice these tests. Western dressage is for all breeds of horses. It is for the firsttime horse owner and for the owner who has had horses all his/ her life. I love to hear horse owners say, “the more I ride and learn the more I realize how much more I don’t know!” Dressage will fill that gap and give you inspiration. Lastly, dressage will give you wonderful challenges for riding correctly and with accuracy during riding tests. It is fun and is similar to the sport of figure skating. It is done with athleticism, which brings out beauty and grace. It reveals lightness and the ability to harmonize with the horse. I promise, if you ride a test, you will get hooked. Join us, and I promise you will love it.  We would love to have you come ride with us. We love to share our dressage backgrounds and knowledge with you.
