HOLDING ON TOO LONG by Crystal Lyons


e can sometimes hold on to something way past when we should’ve let go. We can do this for multiple reasons, sometimes it’s pure determination, sometimes it’s fear. But whatever the reason, holding too long to anything usually ends up in some sort of painful situation. I only rode bulls and bare backs for a little over three years and I was blessed to not have any serious injuries during that time. But the most painful, was two fractured ribs as a result of holding on too long because the whistle was so CLOSE. Knowing better, I did it anyway and ended up underneath a bull that came down on my rib cage with both hind feet. Holding too long will often do that to you. It puts you UNDER whatever it is you’re holding on to. Whether it’s a financial matter, a bad relationship… or a bull ride going south… sometimes it’s best to cut our loses and let go. We can even hold on when something is over. Way over. Our emotions just haven’t gotten the memo to “stick a fork in it… it’s done”. In a society where “checking out” is a dominant trait, I almost hesitate to talk about letting go. But SOMETIMES, we can keep ourselves trapped in the past and sabotage our own future happiness or success by holding on to something that has long ago circled the toilet. Whether it’s a loss of our own making or something thrown at us completely out of our ability to control. Life must go on. And going on sometimes requires letting go. We will have memories, but don’t allow those to become the tinted glasses through which we view everything before us. We’ve probably all done it with our animals. I had a black gelding one time that I LOVED. He ended up slicing his hind leg to the point that it was unfixable. But oh no! I LOVED this horse and wasn’t about to let go. So I ran up a huge vet bill, simultaneously forcing this horse to exist in a lifestyle far below what he should’ve had to endure, until I FINALLY agreed to put him down. But probably where we mostly don’t let go when we should is concerning relationships. When a relationship has become totally toxic or it’s completely flown out the window and OVER, holding on is the worst thing we can do. How can we tell if we’re still holding on to something negatively? Let me ask a few questions:

Do you fear being hurt? Do you tend to lower your self-worth because of a past relationship? Do you settle for “comfortable” because you think that’s the best you’ll have? OR Do you not fully trust anymore, no matter how hard someone tries? Is your heart hard now, when it USED to be tender? These are just a FEW tell-tale signs that we’re still holding on to some painful thing in our past, past hurts, past failures, past screw ups. Letting go is easier said than done for sure, but if we’re going to live a life that’s FULL of healthy relationships, enjoying healthy emotions through it all, we’ve simply GOT to let go! Some things hurt worse… and hurt longer… than fractured ribs. Maybe it’s time to let it go?

Help Your Farrier

Link Casey

Rot will cause a loose shoe How long a shoe stays on a hoof sometimes can be determined on hoof condition. Hooves that are too wet or to dry can cause shoes to come off, because the hoof wall is not strong enough to hold the shoe. As seen in this picture, the wall was invaded by bacteria spread by too much moisture and poorly kept stalls. You can even see where the nails were from the grooves in the busted section of wall. Hooves in this condition can make it very difficult for the farrier to keep shoes on. Help your Farrier do better work by keeping your horses’ feet clean and bacteria free. When the hoof wall starts to fall apart, most times it can be linked to poor environment and fungus. Help your Farrier help you to keep your horses’ feet in optimum condition.

Respecting A Trained Farriers Work Chris Franklin and son Christopher Franklin of Dalton, Georgia attended our 2 day ‘Trim Your Own Course’ with their 5 beautiful Morgan horses. As a cattlemen now breeding Morgans, he offered these encouraging comments as a Horse Owner and satisfied customer turned student: My son and I recently took the two-day trimming school. It was a tremendous education for the long-term care of our horses. We learned things that will allow us to better and more efficiently care for them. Link did a great job explaining in detail why processes need to be done a certain way. Worth the time and the money. Within the first hour I learned so much about what my Farrier was doing WRONG! Our Instructor, Link Casey said, “If your horse is not sore when your Farrier arrives, it should NOT be sore when he leaves.” My horses were always sore and abscessing after a trim and not rideable for 2-3 months! It was ridiculous! Because of that I decided to attend a Farrier School to educate myself. I would refer any owner to gain this knowledge and I would think that farriers would love to have educated clients! Afterwards, at home, I was proud to hear my son discuss a “Flare on the lateral side that needed a slight trim.” We both learned more than we ever thought we could in only 2 days!

A GUIDE TO COMMON HORSE DISEASES Horses are large, beautiful animals that people often own either as work animals or for casual riding. People who own horses often do so with a great sense of pride in having such a majestic creature. A part of this pride of ownership should come from providing horses with the care that they need to remain healthy. To successfully do that, it is crucial that horse owners and keepers recognize that there are numerous threats that can make a horse ill and even cause its death. Illness and disease can strike a horse without warning, and some can be fatal within a relatively short period of time. In addition to knowing of these illnesses, people must also be able to spot the signs that something is wrong, know what to do to provide immediate help to the animal, and know when to contact a vet for assistance. While there are many diseases that affect horses, some of the more common concerns include colic, equine arthritis, laminitis, West Nile Virus, equine encephalomyelitis, Potomac horse fever, azoturia, and botulism. Colic - In horses, colic is a series of conditions that cause varying degrees of abdominal pain. It is a digestive disorder that is very common in horses. The severity of colic varies from mild to severe to the point of euthanization. The most common types of colic include spasmodic and impact colic. Spasmodic colic is caused by excessive gas that causes pain when it stretches the gut. Impact colic occurs when the gut is stretched due to a buildup of feed due to dryness or coarseness of the feed or some form of obstruction. Pain occurs when the stretched gut wall contracts in an attempt to push out the obstruction. Horses suffering from colic pain may bite at their flank or belly or make kicking motions toward it. In some cases, an animal may attempt to lie down or roll on the ground. Other symptoms of colic include anxiety, lack of appetite or defecation, playing in water, an elevated pulse rate, and/or seeming to play in their water bucket yet not drinking from it. Degenerative Joint Disease (DJD) - Degenerative joint disease is a chronic and progressive type of arthritis. It is often called osteoarthritis and results in deterioration of the cartilage in the joints. The degree of joint damage associated with degenerative joint disease often leads to lameness. There is no cure for DJD, or osteoarthritis; however, affected animals may benefit from physical therapy or treatments for stiffness and pain in the joints using corticosteroids or NSAIDs. Equine Arthritis is a term that is given to swelling, redness, and pain (inflammation) of the joints. The inflammation typically hinders the animal’s ability to move comfortably and freely. There are several different types of arthritis that can affect horses, including osteoarthritis. These conditions include traumatic arthritis, septic arthritis, subchondral cystic lesions, and osteochondritis dissecans. Anti-inflammatory drugs can be helpful in the treatment of arthritis in aging horses, as may certain types of physical therapy. Laminitis is an inflammation of the laminae in horse’s hooves. The tissue is a type of connective tissue that attaches the coffin bone to the hoof wall. It is a very serious condition that can result in lameness in horses and may even lead to its eventual euthanasia. Typically, the condition affects the front hooves, but it can affect all four. The condition progresses through four stages, which include the VOLUME 5 | ISSUE 9 2019


developmental stage, acute, subacute, and chronic. Obesity, high fevers, and working on hard surfaces are considered to be risk factors. Equine Encephalomyelitis Mosquitoes carry the viruses that cause equine encephalomyelitis, which is also called sleeping sickness, a disease that affects the central nervous system. There are several strains of the virus, such as the St. Louis strain, the Western strain, and the Eastern strain. Horse owners can prevent it by vaccinating their horses and controlling mosquitoes in the area. Signs that a horse has this condition include depression, nervousness, fever, lack of coordination, poor reflexes, a drooping lower lip, and grinding of the teeth. Other severe symptoms involve the animal lying on its side while bicycling its legs, an inability to swallow, paralysis, and even death. West Nile Virus is a disease that horses get from being bitten by an infected mosquito. The virus can lead to inflammation of the brain, which is called encephalitis. Animals affected by West Nile Virus may also develop meningitis. Symptoms of a horse that is infected by West Nile include fever, impaired vision, convulsions, head pressing, difficulty swallowing, and paralysis or weakness of the hind limbs. Ideally, horse owners will want to vaccinate their horses to prevent infection and reduce areas that can attract mosquitoes, such as standing water. Potomac Horse Fever is a bacterial infection caused by an organism called Neorickettsia risticii. This organism is found in aquatic insects and freshwater snails. Mayflies, damselflies, and dragonflies are an example of where the N. risticii organism can be found. It is a condition that affects the tissue and blood and occurs most frequently in the spring, summer, and fall months. Most cases occur in July, August, and September. A horse that has this condition displays signs such as diarrhea, fever, depression, and a decrease in gut sounds. Azoturia is a condition that affects a horse’s muscles. It can cause problems such as cramping and stiffness. Often, this condition develops after a horse has been overexerted and is left to rest for a day without any changes to its diet. Azoturia has several names associated with it, including “Monday morning disease” and “tying up.” In addition to the cramps and stiffness, a horse may stagger, have an elevated temperature, sweat, and have an elevated heart rate. The pain may be so bad that standing may be difficult or impossible for some horses. To treat this condition, seek the assistance of a vet and allow the animal to rest. Typically, the vet will give anti-inflammatories and muscle relaxants and require the muscles to be massaged. Recovery may take as long as eight weeks. People can prevent azoturia from occurring by adjusting the feed on days of rest and properly warming and cooling down their horses. Botulism - There are three types of botulism that affects horses: botulism from spoiled hay that is either wet or dry, botulism from hay that is contaminated with the carcass of an animal, or botulism from a wound. Most often, horses that suffer from equine botulism get it from the hay that they eat. It is important for those caring for horses to recognize the signs of botulism, as an untreated horse is at high risk of dying or needing to be euthanized. The signs or symptoms associated with botulism include muscle weakness in the form of a weak tongue, weak eyelid tone, flaccid paralysis, and dysphagia. A horse that has come in contact with the toxin from contaminated feed may show edema of the face and muzzle, trembling of the muscles, and an inability to hold up its head. Treatment involves an antiserum. www.alansfactoryoutlet.com/a-guide-to-common-horse-diseases

Cool Clean Water The horse’s most vital nutrient is water. An adult horse’s body is composed of roughly 70 percent water, which equates to 770 pounds or 96 gallons of water for the average 1,100-pound horse. Foals’ bodies have even higher water content, roughly 80 percent, and on a weight-to-weight basis, small horses consume more water than large horses. A horse’s daily water requirements are influenced by age; body condition; the amount, type and quality of feed consumed; fitness level; and activity level. Add to that the temperature, as well as the freshness, purity and palatability of the available water and it becomes obvious that there are a number of factors that influence water consumption. Because fat is low in water content compared to lean muscle, fat horses typically require less water than horses maintained at optimal body condition. As a general rule, water intake is proportional to dry-matter intake, but the composition and digestibility of the feed is also a factor. Horses consuming all-hay diets drink more water than horses fed a grain diet coupled with hay or a complete pelleted diet. Horses on good-quality pastures, which can be 65 to 80 percent water, will consume less drinking water compared to horses on hay and grain because a large percentage of their water needs are met by the moisture in the grass. That is why idle horses might actually consume less water in the summer than in the winter when they are stalled and on a hay-based diet. Their total water intake may be identical during 14

both seasons, but just coming from different sources. We all know that salt consumption increases thirst, but feed protein intake above the horse’s requirement increases both water intake and urinary output, as the horse voids excess nitrogen via urine. An idle, 1,100-pound horse in a cool environment will drink 6 to 10 gallons of water per day. That amount may increase to 15 gallons per day in a hot environment. Work horses require 10-18 gallons of water per day on average but could require much more in hot weather. Nursing mares drink more water because of fluid loss associated with milk production and increased consumption of feed to support milk production. An 1,100-pound nursing mare can easily drink up to 20 gallons of water per day. Foals also have higher water requirements and will drink 6 to 8 gallons of water per day even in relatively cool weather. A horse’s water consumption will also be greatly affected by the temperature of the water. Consumption appears to be best when the water temperature is between 45 to 65 degrees Fahrenheit. Sudden weather changes can also affect water consumption and lead to problems such as impaction colic. To combat this, add an ounce or two of a loose salt to the horse’s daily ration when weather changes are imminent. The salt will stimulate water consumption. Horses typically drink less water in cold weather, whereas heat and humidity increase their water requirements. In exercising horses, water intake may increase as much as 80 percent in horses moved from a cool climate to a hot, humid climate. Depending on the conditions in which a horse is exercised, total water intake for an 1,100-pound horse can increase from a normal 4 to 10 gallons per day to as high as 30 gallons per day. All horses need clean, good-quality water at all times. Outdoor water troughs should be cleaned at least every couple of week to remove debris and algae. Stall water buckets should be emptied and rinsed daily. Check automatic water systems daily, as they could malfunction and not be providing adequate amounts of water.

any guidebooks, most maps, and the entire www.TrailMeister website are devoted to a series of squiggly lines. We study those streaks of ink, dream of being on them, and spend an inordinate amount of money to get to and follow them. Those of us that enjoy a life spent out of doors, and especially trail riders, spend a large amount of time on trails. But have we stopped for a moment to appreciate those who create and maintain the trails beneath us? I’m not sure how many trail miles I’ve covered over the years. Between day rides, frequent pack trips into wilderness areas, and even a few backpacking excursions over the past decades, I’d venture that the number foots well into the thousands, perhaps even into five digit territory. Generally those miles have been made with little thought to the origins of the trails. Instead I often think about the upcoming views, the quality of the fishing, and where the next place to water the mules lies in the distance ahead. Despite the time I spend on the trail I rarely consider the hard work and efforts that go into creating the paths that grant us access into these hallowed places. Aren’t trails meant to be unnoticed? If you believe that your land managers (or trail fairies, take your pick) are able to maintain trails I can tell you about a Gilligan’s Island trip into the Pasayten Wilderness where a 3 hour ride became an 8 hour ordeal of trail clearing. This past summer I had the opportunity to join groups of 16

concerned riders for work projects across the Pacific Northwest. People from hundreds of miles away loaded their trucks and trailers to join together to clear trail, rebuild equestrian camps, and reconstruct bridges in the Wilderness, with members of Back Country Horsemen of America. Every work party begins with a greeting from piles of tools, and materials. After a safety briefing, we make our way to our work site and begin the task at hand. From removing ancient nails from a rotting bridge deck to mixing concrete for new highline posts, we labored, occasionally taking breaks to admire our handy work. Trail work is hard. Foot by foot, often inch by painstaking inch. Occasionally it goes quickly. More often it’s a slow laborious slog. Every time I volunteer for a trail work party I’m always amazed at the time and dedication that even a modest project requires. When I’m riding I move past wooden bridges, cleared downfall, and waterbars without pause. It’s the time spent helping build and maintaining these structures that puts this into perspective and reminds me of the efforts that went into them. For the past 46 years the Back Country Horsemen of America have been working to maintain trails on public lands across the nation. From raising funds and awareness, to influencing policies with land managers, they’ve been on the ground, leading trail projects and educating trail users. Keeping horse trails and camps open involves not just the national organization but also

state and local chapters of BCHA, all working together as stewards of local trails. The hard work of these groups creates pathways for horsemen to access the beautiful and remote places that we all crave. Their trail work provides safe passage through rugged landscapes that would otherwise be impassable and lost to future generations. So, the next time you’re out enjoying a trail ride, remember to give a thank you to the volunteers that made it possible. If you happen to be enjoying the Ken Wilcox Horse Camp or pack into the Pasayten Wilderness across the bridges on Robinson Creek keep an eye open for the new picnic tables and the rebuilt bridge. Some of us are still sore from the efforts. Better yet, please be active in keeping your trails open. Join a trail advocacy organization and fight to protect the wild places that you love.

We work to alleviate the suffering and senseless slaughter of domestic equine and to provide an environment for rehabilitation and carefully select adoptive homes At the age of 12 Victoria rescued her first horse. Since 1968 she has always taken in the horses that everyone has given up, trying to turn their life around by giving them one last chance. In 1991, orphaned nurse mare foals were brought to Victoria’s attention. Since then, Nurse Mare Foal Rescue is our main priority and has progressively grown to save THOUSANDS of foals. We offer a neonatal and intensive care facility for orphan nurse mare foals. We provide the foals with the necessary attention in order to secure a future in adoptive homes. Annually, we save 150-200 throw away foals from a certain death and provide them with the opportunity to a healthy life. One or two at a time, horses have come in and out of her life inspiring her to firmly believe that there is always a horse out there in need of refuge, and always a need for someone to feel responsible and intervene on that animal’s behalf. Establishing the Last Chance Corral in 1986 was the realization of her vision of creating a muchneeded facility to offer horses asylum. Today, the Last Chance Corral proudly offers horses hope, shelter, and opportunity regardless of their situation or problems. Be it psychological

or physiological we are committed to addressing the individual needs of each rescued animal. Our work begins with developing an individual diet, treatment regiments, and a training program for each horse according to its needs. When a horse has been sufficiently rehabilitated we go about the work of finding appropriate adoptive homes that suit the horse’s needs and abilities. 740.594.4336 lastchancecorral.org
