A great big thank you to everyone who stopped by our booth and allowed us to share our excitement for the upcoming CMO season. We hope to see many newcomers at the “Try It Before You Ride It” on April 30th. Feel free to camp all weekend or just come on Saturday morning to learn the art of Competitive Mounted Orienteering.

Once you learn how to CMO in April, you will have plenty of opportunities to practice at one of our many rides planned for summer 2011. If you can't make it in April we would be glad to give you instructions at any of our other rides. Be sure to check out the schedule of events for a complete list of rides and locations. All rides have camping on a first come first serve basis and the club usually gets together for a potluck on Saturday evenings.

ride through the woods searching for “something that stops a runaway horse” or “what kind of rope do you not want to be at the end of?” Some clues are created by nature and described in detail like “look for the five trunk tree with a bend in one trunk pointing towards the trail.” If a clue appears to be difficult to find, the ride manager will put a confidence ribbon on the clue so that when you do find it you will be sure that you are at the correct spot. Competitive Mounted Orienteering is a wonderful way to enjoy your horse and your friends. You can ride in teams of one to six and you must all stay together during the rides. Personally, I have never laughed harder on horseback then I do with my friends during a ride. We enjoy the woods, the weather, our horses and the challenge. If you have given it a try in the past please come back and join us again this year. If you have never tried CMO what a great year to start. We look forward to seeing everyone at the rides! Visit www.micmo.org. Michigan Reined CHA Spring is definitely in the air with near 50 degree temps as I write this article.

of those patients whose families visit often. The same is true with a boarded horse. Also, spend as much time as possible with him there, observing his habits so that you can immediately pick up on something that is not right. When you know your horse's daily habits, you can spot when something is out of the ordinary. For example, if your horse is stalled most of the time, you know when he lies down. Or, if he spends most of his days in the pasture, then he probably does not lie down at all. So, if you see him in the pasture lying down or lying down in his stall at an odd time, then you know that is out of the ordinary. You need to observe him carefully to make sure he does not start to roll which can be an indication of colic. It is also important to know your horse's eating and drinking habits as they can be indicative of potential problems. If he drops a lot of grain when he is eating, then he may have a tooth problem. If he eats very quickly, chances are that he is not digesting his food to the optimum, and you should think about feeding him three smaller meals per day to help digestion. Water intake it of the utmost importance. The only way to monitor your horse's water consumption is by using buckets. Often in the winter, horses stop drinking as much. To encourage drinking, you can add one-half teaspoon of salt to the bucket—especially if the temperature drops below 32 degrees. Learning to read your horse's body language is also important. A horse that is “parked out” (front and back legs stretched out) may be in distress from colic. A horse that stands with his head hung low may either be ill or depressed. A horse that normally grazes constantly but is just standing still in the

Building a Partnership with Your Horse

HOW TO GET THE MOST FROM YOUR VET By Lynn Palm www.LynnPalm.com • 1-800-503-2824 Because all other equine health issues hinge on your veterinarian's medical expertise and recommendations, he/she is the most important equine professional that you will work with. Communication Is the Key Good communication with your vet is essential to the care of your horse. Therefore, in selecting a vet, look for a professional who communicates clearly and who can explain to you, in terms you can understand, the diagnosis of your horse's condition, why the health issue occurred, and ways to improve your horse's health. You must be an active participant in your horse's health care. The more you know about equine health issues, the easier it will be for your vet to communicate with you and the more willing he will be to spend the time explaining your horse's condition/problem to you in detail. But, no matter what your level of expertise, your vet must demonstrate that he has time for you. When your vet sees that you are willing to learn all you need to know to do follow-up care of your horse, he should be willing to thoroughly demonstrate the treatment he recommends. The best learning experience I had was giving the vet follow-up reports in which I had to describe how a cut was healing and how a horse felt after a bellyache. If either you or he feels that you are unable to carry out the follow-up treatment, you both need to be honest and open about it. The best interest of the horse must always come before pride and ego!

Another way you can help your relationship with your vet is by training your horse to be a good patient: one who stands quietly while being examined and who needs only mild restraint, if any, while being treated. A horse with good, basic, ground training should stand quietly for a vet exam. Reading Your Horse - A Form of Communication Caring for any animal is challenging because they cannot talk to us and tell us how they feel. It is especially difficult with horses because they do not live in close proximity to us as do our cats and dogs. To me, caring for horses is never dull because learning the “inner horse” makes it constantly interesting. By learning the “inner horse,” I mean learning his habits and personality to the degree that you immediately know when something is wrong and/or not routine. If your lifestyle is such that you have to board your horse, then you never get the chance to build that special bond that comes when you are your horse's caretaker as well as rider. You must rely on someone else being able to know when something is “out of whack” with your horse. That is why choosing a boarding facility should be more about the humans in charge than the physical facility itself. Even if you do board your horse, try to visit your horse as often as possible even if you just stay long enough to check up on him. People with a family member in a nursing home are told to visit as often as possible. The belief is that the staff will be extra vigilant

pasture is behaving abnor mally. These are examples of body language you need to learn to interpret in order to be the best possible caretaker of your equine partner. When to Call the Vet Once you learn to read your horse it is easier to determine when to call your vet. When in doubt, of course always err on the side of caution and call! If you are a first-time horse owner, call whenever something looks out of the ordinary. If you are an experienced horse owner, then you have to determine if it is something you can handle yourself or if you need assistance. You can save a lot of money if you are able to do some of your own health maintenance like yearly shots. Be sure to buy any live virus vaccines from your vet, however, as that is the only way you will be guaranteed to get a live virus! If you do give your own shots and you show around the country, you need to ask your vet what shots are necessary in different parts of the country. Different areas h a v e d i f f e re n t d i s e a s e problems. Because your veterinarian is the most important equine professional you will interact with, you need to have a good rapport with him/her and have total trust. If you are currently looking for a veterinarian, get a recommendation from area horsemen. You will have to meet with the vet personally to find out if you feel like you can have a good working relationship with him. If possible, choose a vet who is professionally experienced with the riding discipline that you participate in. The bottom line is you must select a veterinarian with your horse's best interests and well being in mind. To learn more please visit www.lynnpalm.com or call 1-800-503-2824. WWW.SADDLEUPMAG.COM

roughage. Add that to the other benefits of high-quality roughage for horses, namely the greater availability of other nutrients, and it is easy to see where spending a little more money for better hay is better for your horse in the long run. So what does all this mean for your horse? A horse consuming 1-1.5% of its body weight per day in quality hay will meet a horse's fiber requirements, as well as help keep his digestive tract functioning properly. What does this mean for you? Quality hay is the

HOW DOES YOUR HAY STACK UP? Part II: Evaluating Hay Quality & Fiber By Nutrena • www.horsefeedblog.com Because hay is such a common part of a horse's diet, judging quality on visual inspection is important, as lab analysis is not always easily available. Here are three simple things to look for to help you get started selecting the best hay for your horses and your money. 1. The initial check that most people are familiar with is color and smell. Horse hay should be bright green and smell slightly sweet. Brown hay typically indicates either a problem in the baling process, such as being rained on, or age. Acrid or musty smells generally indicate the presence of mold. 2. Another sign of good horse hay is the leaf:stem ratio. The more leaves, the better, since the leaves are where most of the nutrition in the hay is stored. Hay that has too many hard, woody stems is difficult to digest. Even if it is cheaper, most horses will pick through and leave the bulk of the stems behind, costing more in the long run. High quality hay is fine-stemmed, pliable, and full of leaves. 3. Type of hay is another factor. Grass hays, such as timothy or orchard grass, generally provide sound basic nutrition. The higher the concentration of legumes, such as alfalfa or clover, the higher the energy and protein content. High quality alfalfa is generally higher energy and protein compared to high quality grass hay, but good quality grass hay may be a better choice than mediocre quality alfalfa hay. These three simple tips are a great place to start when evaluating your hay but

remember that factors such as soil, fertilization, plant maturity and storage will all impact the quality of your hay. So, let's talk fiber - the first and foremost source of fiber in a horse's diet is their roughage, or hay. Secondary to that, is what is present in any supplemental grain sources. Let's define what fiber is: • Fiber is a measure of the plant cell wall, or the structural portions that give the plant support. • Main components of fiber are the digestible cellulose and hemicellulose, and the indigestible lignin. - As a crop of hay matures, the lignin content increases and the cellulose and hemicellulose decrease. Here's what happens as a horse consumes roughage: • Some quick digestion occurs in the stomach and small intestine, allowing starches and sugars to get digested as the forages pass through. • The fiber begins to get digested as the feed passes into the hindgut, or the cecum and colon. • Fiber is digested well in the hind gut because of the presence of billions of microorganisms (bugs or Pr o b i o t i c ) w h o s e s o l e function is to digest fiber. • These microorganisms break down fibrous feeds into short-chain volatile fatty acids, which are a source of energy for the horse. Here is why it becomes important to feed a highquality, early-growth-stage roughage. As a plant matures, the lignin portion increases, reducing the energy available from that

foundation of any equine diet and hay provides as much as 50-90% of the horse's total nutrient intake. Having your hay tested is essential to determining what you should put in your horses’ feed bucket and a balanced diet supports sound growth, peak performance and longevity. “How Does Your Hay Stack Up?” If you're interested in learning more about “How Your Hay Stacks Up” and getting your hay tested for FREE, visit online at: www.nutrenainfo.com/hay. Brought to you by Nutrena, www.horsefeedblog.com

Seeking lower NSC in your hay?? Non-Structural Carbohydrates (NSC) Properly fertilized--Slow growth due to nutrient deficiency can cause high NSC; fertilized stands should have grown quickly and avoided this problem. Also, thick stands shade lower leaves from the sun, thereby reducing their ability to make sugar. Cut after a period of cloudy weather--Plants synthesize sugars during sunny weather, and periods of cloudy weather will result in reduced NSC. Rain after cutting may be a plus if humidity is low and hay dries without mold. Some carbohydrates might dissolve in water and leach out of the hay. Mixed with legume--If your horse has not previously shown sensitivity to alfalfa, grass mixed with a little alfalfa may be low in NSC as the alfalfa provides needed nitrogen (fertilization) and shades the grass. Be careful; some laminitic horses seem to react to some unknown triggers in alfalfa and clover. Already tested for NSC--Let your hay grower know that this information is valuable to you so you can choose hay that is appropriate for individual classes of animals. With proper testing, he may be able to sell his high-sugar hay at a higher price for dairy cattle or performance horses. He may be able to sell his rained-on, but not moldy hay for a better price if tests low in NSC and therefore is more suitable for easy keepers and metabolically challenged horses. Let him know that horse owners are requiring appropriate testing, just like his dairy clients do. Hay is likely to be higher in NSC if: • It was cut after drought or cold nights, especially when cured under cloudless skies. • It comes from thin, sparse stands of grass that have more sunshine on every leaf. • It was grown under growth-limiting levels of nitrogen, phosphorus or potassium (inadequate fertilization). • It is made from cereal grains such as oat, wheat, rye or barley that tend to be higher in NSC, even if the grain is not developed yet. The stems collect sugar in preparation for seed development. (42)

TEA TREE OIL BASED PRODUCTS Antibacterial, Antifungal, Antiviral T-HOOF MEDICATED HOOF OIL

T-SUL MEDICATED CREAM

is an excellent aid in the treatment of thrush, white line disease and dry hooves. Great aid for any bacterial or fungal hoof problem. It won’t stain your hands. Tea Tree Oil is excellent at killing bacteria and fungus. Also contains a topical pain reliever. Use daily until clear. Works well as a preventative. Excellent as a hoof conditioner.

is simply the best medicated cream you will ever use. T-Sul uses Tea Tree Oil, Sulfur, Zinc Oxide and Glycerin in natural Olive Oil and Bees Wax base. T-Sul does not sting. It’s fantastic for scratches, cuts, scrapes, ringworm, rain rot, mud fever and any bacterial or fungal rash or infection. Try it on your dog’s hot spots.

To order T-Hoof and T-Sul call (313) 320-0696 or go to www.equusselect.com Equus Select LLC, 1657 Aline Drive, Grosse Pointe Woods, MI 48236

Look what people are saying about T-Sul & T-Hoof! Nothing has gotten rid of my horse’s scratches as well as T-Sul. He gets them every year, so I have practice. ~ Val J. I bought a horse with a bad case of scratches, not knowing he had it. The first year I got medicine from the vet and it didn’t make any kind of change. I discovered your T-Sul product two years ago and the MSU Expo and started treating his feet. MAN – what a difference! ~ Carolyn P. T-Sul has performed better than any other topical dressing I have used in 35 years with horses. ~ Andrew M. Used the medicated hoof oil, T-Hoof, for thrush and it cleared it right up! ~ Elise S. I love the T-Hoof for my horses because it eliminates the threat of thrush immediately and it conditions the hoof. ~ Jan B. Used T-Sul on awful cuts for horse, dogs, people – cured scratches on drafts, got rid of ear infection in dog. Works really well on scars and injuries to heal well and pretty. ~ Julie B. T-Sul worked wonders! Cured my horse’s rain rot and saw hair growth immediately! ~ Sabrina N. My horse had chronic thrush that I could not resolve until using T-Hoof! Now he is thrush free! ~ Mary D. White Line disease – treated it once a day for about four days with T-Hoof and it was gone. ~ Larry F.
