Expect to see: Solid, versatile horses and lots of color. â€œOur horses are well
known for their cowhorse pedigrees, speed, good bone, feet and withers,â€? says Stan. â€œOn the ranch, we ride the horses we raise and sell. Theyâ€™re born in ranch country, and the mares foal out and spend the summers on native pasture with their respective stallion. The foals learn to cross creeks, navigate through mountains, timber and rock. As a result, they are well-muscled with good feet. They step out, have trainable minds and a hard working attitude.â€?

Benefits of Slow Feeding By Michelle K. Binder-Zolezzi, Relational Riding Academy Horse owners should know how the equine digestive system works. Horses are “trickle feeders” so need a constant flow of fiber to keep things healthy and working well. Feeding two flakes of hay and a can of grain twice a day is not a natural way to manage your horses diet. Horses prefer to eat with their heads down. This position allows nasal passages to drain and permits them to see almost 360 degrees. If you watch a horse eat hay out of an overhead feeder, you’ll notice that when hay is on the ground he will switch from the feeder to eating what he has spilled. Sometimes you’ll see horses actually throw the hay out of the feeder…they know what’s natural. Scattering hay simulates grazing but is time consuming for you as well as wasteful. The term “bolus eating”, describes horses that eat hay free choice and all at once. When you throw your horse two or three flakes of hay he will eat it until it is gone, then be hungry well before you get home to feed him again at night. Slowing down the rate at which horses can access hay means that the digestive process is slowed down and nutrients in hay can be absorbed much more efficiently. Slow feeding horses provides a continuous feeding method, which means
SAVE THE DATE
your horse will constantly be foraging, thereby stimulating their digestive system as well as their mind. Under these conditions your horse’s body will work as nature has intended. How can we shift to a slow feeding method? Try a Box Feeder With a Box Feeder the horse is “grazing” through a metal grid. We have not experienced any problems with the horses lips or tongues from the metal grids even in extremely cold winter temperatures. Of course the size of the openings in the grid makes a difference and you might be surprised at how much hay a horse can consume through 3 inch openings! Box feeders can be designed to have the horse eat from the top or from the side, to be covered or open and to have sloping floors. With a top feeder the metal grid is placed on top of the hay. As the horse consumes the hay, the grid follows it down to the floor. Feeders should be nearly completely empty before refilling to avoid spoilage. With a side feeder the metal grid is placed vertically while a slanted bottom makes the hay slide down to the grid for the horse to eat. Hay can become stuck instead of sliding so material and slope become critical to the success of the side feeder. Box feeders should be safe and durably constructed as

well as weather resistant to keep hay dry. They may be constructed any size so our outside box feeders hold up to two average bales of hay. It is also possible to feed more than one horse from the same feeder by building them to allow single or double sided access. These designs are the most dependable when properly managed. Using this feeding method we are able to fill feeders every two to three days and our horses are not fat, they are happy. Larger covered feeders of a similar style that are designed to feed round bales are also available. The covered models keep hay from spoiling in the weather and restrict access as well. Managed access through a grill or grate ensures that the hay stays in the feeder, clean and dry and that you can fill it much less often. Some covered large bale feeders do not regulate how much hay can be accessed and so waste is a problem. We have found managed access to be the best solution to both waste and convenience when feeding from large bales. Some people have tried soft feeders like hay nets and small mesh hay nets even over large bales. Nets are not as durable as box feeders; they are difficult to load, the hay gets wet and horses can easily become entangled in them especially
when shod. If they are left on the ground, horses will trample and soil the hay that remains in them instead of eating it. This works for some but we were not happy with the results. On our farm we have been able to utilize both small box feeders inside and out as well as covered large round bale feeders to achieve terrific results in slow feeding. Our feeder designs have proven safe and effective and have survived almost three years of â€œfield trialsâ€?. If you are a horse owner I encourage you to try slow feeding for the good of your horse as well as convenience and savings for you.

ON THE EDGE OF COMMON SENSE by Baxter Black, DVM
Horses Good As Gold Some horses are as good as gold. They take care of kids just learning, old cowgirls with osteoporosis, cowboys of any age who should have a designated driver, and homeward bound riders lost in a blizzard. I classify these gold horses in the same category as those equidae who performed routinely heroic duties in the Pony Express, pulling cannons in the civil war, Seabiscuit, and Trigger, who could always save Roy in times of distress. There’s a heroic picture of Cannonball hanging on the wall at Cheryl and Howard’s ranch house on the Wasatch front. One morning Howard was tending to his artificial insemination program and had to drive to town. He asked Cheryl to ride through the cows to check for those in heat. He left Cannonball saddled up in the barn. Cheryl was the kind of horseman who rode when it was necessary. However, she had little interest in learning more than the basics; get on, go straight, turn or stop. The equivalent of a motorcar driver who doesn’t change flats, drive anything with a clutch, and never thinks of checking the oil. She assumes
someone else worries about that stuff. She puffed out to the barn in her down-coat, mud boots, mittens and stocking cap. Using a block for a stool, she climbed aboard. Cheryl trusted Cannonball. Howard was proud of his new saddle, custom made by Bob Schild in Blackfoot. It was heavy and still squeaked. Out amidst the cows they trod purposefully and soon spotted one showing signs of estrus. Cheryl approached the cow, leaned out over the right side to read the tag and the saddle slipped fast as a fireman down a flagpole! She was under Cannonball’s belly with one foot still in the stirrup, hung up and completely upside down! From her precarious position she eyed Cannonball. She had thoughts of being drug to death, or paralyzed! Had she written her will? Who will raise her children? And, ‘Did I leave anything simmering on the stove?’ flooded her mind! Fast-forward twenty minutes. Cheryl had extracted herself unhurt. She could not figure out how to undo the saddle so she unbuckled, unsnapped, untied and unwrapped every attachment she could find until it fell to the ground. The trusty Cannonball watched the whole process with resignation and patience. It took three trips but she managed to drag the horse, saddle tree and all the pieces back to the barn. When she told Howard her story he said, “My gosh! Why didn’t you check the cinch?” She plopped her hands on her hips and said indignantly, “Now who in the world would ever think of that?” www.baxterblack.com

AG ELESS HORSEMANSHIP
Bone Marrow Derived Stem Cell Therapy for Ligament and Tendon Injuries in Horses Robert K. Schneider, DVM MS McKinlay & Peters Equine Hospital - Spokane, Washington
Tendon and ligament injuries are common in performance horses. Athletic horses are asked to perform at high speed, make sudden changes in direction, jump over obstacles, or make repetitive movements that could increase strain on the ligaments and tendons that support their joints. It is not surprising that these important weight-bearing structures are injured because they are frequently stretched beyond their biomechanical limits when the horse is performing. Tearing of the fibers in the ligament or tendon results in inflammation, swelling, pain, and lameness that takes the horse out of performance. The injury can be career ending for some horses. Treatment involves putting the horse through a rest and rehabilitation program that allows time for the tendon or ligament to heal. There is a new treatment available for horses with these injuries. This treatment uses stem cells that are obtained from the horse’s bone marrow, cultured in a laboratory, and then injected back into the injured tendon or ligament. I have used this treatment in more than 300 horses with serious injuries to a tendon or ligament. The successful results in these clinical cases and research studies on stem cells make this the most promising new treatment currently available for horses with tendon or ligament injuries. The treatment involves taking bone marrow from the ster-
num between the front legs of the horse. This is accomplished with the horse standing, sedated, using local anesthesia. The bone marrow is aspirated through a large needle that is placed into the sternum. The bone marrow is then shipped overnight to the Advanced Regenerative Therapy (ART) LaboraRobert K. Schneider, DVM MS tory in Fort Collins, Colorado (www.art4dvm.com). Stem cells are isolated from the bone marrow and cultured to greatly increase the number of stem cells. This process takes 2 to 3 weeks, then the cells are frozen and shipped overnight back to the equine hospital. Usually 10 to 20 million cells are injected into the injured area in the tendon or ligament. More cells can be cultured when necessary. The cells are thawed and injected into the injured area of the tendon or ligament using ultrasound guidance under general anesthesia. General anesthesia is necessary to insure precise accurate injection into the injured area of the tendon or ligament.
