Ann Kirk A Fresh Start Greetings to all you horse lovers! By the time you read this, we will be in the fourth month of 2018 already. It is amazing how fast time goes by but Spring is such an exciting time with all the possibilities of the summer ahead. It is filled with anticipation as we attend clinics, get ready for shows and once again go for rides along our old familiar trails. I love the promise of Spring after the barrenness of Winter. It is like getting a fresh start every year. And that is what I want to talk about this month; a fresh start with our horses. I am often asked how to solve this problem or that problem concerning riding or handling a horse. But often the “problem” is only a symptom pointing to a violation of the teacher/ student trust during training. And this often stems from a misunderstanding of why the horse does what it does. There are two aspects of the horse that must be taken into consideration every time you enter its space; one is the prey animal instinct and the other is the herd animal dynamic. Either one is a recipe for disaster if they are ignored. We are often so focused on riding to enjoy the trails (or the rails) that we try to push the “student” to accept things on our time schedule. This usually leads to behaviors that are natural to the horse but can be quite scary to us. They don’t plan on being “bad” or “disrespectful”. These concepts do not even exist in horse language. They are just reacting to the pressure like a horse. This sometimes takes the form of biting or kicking, rearing or bucking. Or maybe
less obvious forms such as barn sourness or hard to catch or shying on the trails. Whatever their attempt to communicate, it is important not to ignore their “voice”. It pays to take time to evaluate the source of their resistance. It bears repeating that terms such as “right” or “wrong”, “good” or “bad,” “respect” or “disrespectful”...do not exist for a horse. Horses are governed by instincts programmed into their being by the Creator. They don’t think in terms of “good” or “bad”, but in terms of what works and what doesn’t according to what comes natural. If I begin working with my horse with the thought that he is being disrespectful, I can get a mindset that I have to show him who’s boss. This often leads to being too aggressive which in turn puts the horse on the defensive, thinking it’s trying to save its life. The first priority of any horse is to be safe. If he feels threatened or attacked, he is wired to try to escape first and fight to the finish second. I have been in far
My goal is to connect you with your horse by teaching you sensible, hands-on exercises that will reduce frustration and make your partnership possible. You are personally invited to come and join this fun-filled, incredible journey that will make your goals a reality!

too many power struggles with horses when I have forgotten this and even if I win, I lose. If a horse is scared or defensive, I may be able to force him but I can not teach him. I always have to go back and reestablish trust before I can proceed with teaching the horse what I want him to learn. Does this mean that I have to be super gentle all the time and seek to never raise the emotional level of my horse? No! Quite the opposite! Raising the emotional level is essential to having a calm, trusting horse. Pressure is not bad if you understand what you are looking for and how to get it. Being persistent is a must because most horses’ first reaction to pressure of any kind is to resist. This is in their DNA. If they wait to see if it’s dangerous, they could be dead. That’s how they think. So the pressure must be persistent enough to get them to look for the right answer but passive enough that it does not produce a panic which will shut down their ability to think it through. Then, as you begin to get more and more right answers, you can combine them to make a great performance horse that becomes like a dance partner. Only when he trusts you, can you direct him where you want him to go. So never disregard the prey animal instinct in your horse. All your dealings with him must take it into consideration. When you encounter a “problem” area, give him the benefit of the doubt and believe that fear is making him act out in an inappropriate way. If you are wrong and the behavior comes from the pecking order dynamic (which we will talk about next article), you will find that the same lessons still apply for solving the dilemma. Though most of you may not want to be horse trainers, if you own a horse, you are training him. Taking the time to learn how you can condition the desired response in a way that is none threatening and clear, is essential to your safety and enjoyment of your horse. Consider your horse as a kindergarten or 1st grade student and you are the teacher. You want to be consistently advancing but in small enough steps that the “child” can learn the lesson. Remember, the lesson is always clearer to the teacher than it is to the student and the teacher cannot tell the student when the student has learned the lesson. A good teacher never “beats” or scolds the student for not understanding a lesson or for being afraid for the teacher knows that it is his responsibility to explain the lesson in a clear enough manner that the student can get the right answer. I cannot expect my “student” to spell or read until he knows the individual letters so I must teach the separate pieces of the maneuver before I can put them together for control. I can’t expect to enforce what I haven’t taken time to teach. So, with all that said, take time to enjoy your horse. Challenge yourself to get better acquainted with his behavior patterns and seek to make a connection that is not linked to the demands of riding. Work on anything that needs improving on his ground manners and it will carry over to more respect and trust when you get on his back. Hope this is helpful to someone and I will look forward to hearing from anyone who has a question that I might help with Be sure to come ride with me this month at my Spring Clinic, April 20-22. You will see the reality of what we talked about in this article addressed in many ways. Next issue, we will talk about the herd animal dynamic and how understanding it can make us safer around our horses. God Bless until next time.....Ann

On The edge Of COmmOn SenSe by Baxter Black, DVM
I Was Only Trying to Help It is a wonder that some vet students don’t get discouraged. I don’t mean from the grueling hours of study, the four years without sleep or the daunting specter of trying to cram ten metric tons of knowledge into a six-ounce brain. No, I mean when the student first begins to realize that despite all their skill, mental prowess and cow savvy, even the lowliest animal can reduce you to a bumbling klutz. Young Bruce was an enthusiastic vet student who spent his holidays and summers at Dr. Lionel’s clinic. He showed up one fine afternoon during spring break and asked Doc if he could go on call with him. Bruce dressed in his finest and sporting a new straw hat. He was anxious to observe and assist, if Doc needed it. Off they went to check on a horse with the vague complaint of bein’ touchy about the head. They arrived at the address on the outskirts of town. The owner, a lady, explained as they walked around the back of the house that they’d had the horse a month and wondered if he had an ear infection. Standing ankle deep in the sprouting pigweed was a scruffy little stallion. He stood 13 hands and maybe weighed 800 lbs.
He was tethered on a 25-foot rope and had mowed weeds in a fifty-foot circle. “He’s an Adopt-A-Horse,” she said. They’d named him Sparky. Bruce, eager to help, untied the tether. Doc gathered his thermometer and stethoscope and stood visiting with the owner. They watched Bruce gently work his way up the rope. The horse eyed him like a prisoner watches the hangman. Just as Bruce was reaching for the halter the stallion took a savage bite at him! His teeth locked onto the new Resistol and jerked it off his head! Sparky reared and pawed. Bruce fell back. Sparky wheeled and raced toward the back fence. “It’s only an acre lot,” the lady said encouragingly. Bruce caught the rope at the twenty-foot mark and was catapulted to his feet! He hung on as they coursed around, between and through the truck camper up on blocks, the boat covered with blue plastic, the tilting hay pile, aluminum storage shed, old appliances, sheep wire, pile of posts and collection of ancient farm implements. Sparky was finally yanked to a halt when his rope tangled in the remains of an old pickup bed. Bruce staggered from the bone yard streaked and tattered. He lost his glasses and his straw hat looked like a regurgitated cud. While Doc was prescribing a treatment she could put in the feed, the owner asked, “Since you’re here could you put my dog to sleep?” Doc agreed and returned from his vet truck with the euthanasia solution to find Bruce, trying to regain his lost dignity, holding the dog in his arms. The lady explained her reasons and said goodbye to the dog then remarked, “and another thing, every time I picked up that dog it peed on me.” As she spoke Bruce felt the warmth soaking down the front of his shirt. — www.baxterblack.com

Dr. Jed McKinlay, McKinlay & Peters Equine Hospital
Rabies is one of the ‘core’ vaccinations recommended by the American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP). The AAEP is made up of veterinarians who specialize in equine practice, has members throughout the world, and has various committees made up of veterinarians from different regions of the United States and InterDr. Jed McKinlay DVM, nationally. The AAEP’s misMcKinlay & Peters Equine Hospital sion is to improve the health and welfare of the horse, to further the professional development of its members, and to provide resources and leadership for the benefit of the equine industry. These principles have guided the AAEP for more than six decades in the activities and services it provides. One of the committees determines what diseases every horse should be protected against by vaccination. These diseases are known to have relatively high prevalence rates. The vaccinations for the diseases in the ‘core’ list are also very effective in preventing disease. Believe it or not, the core list is relatively short. It includes Eastern and
Western Sleeping Sickness (encephalomyelitis), Tetanus, West Nile Virus, and Rabies, only five diseases. We have commonly advocated vaccination for all of these diseases for many years, except Rabies. So why or why not Rabies? I think there are a couple of reasons we don’t protect our horses against Rabies. Mainly, it’s one more thing to add to the list. Here are some of the reasons for vaccination: Rabies can affect horses (as well as many other animals) and humans. Is this a good reason for vaccination? If by some unlucky chance your horse was bitten by a rabid animal, and then bit you, or you made contact with the horses saliva in an open cut, you could then get the dreaded disease too. The treatment for Rabies in people is costly (about $7,500 per person) and not any fun. Human Rabies treatment occurs about 40,000 times annually in the United States. Rabies happens 2.5 times more frequently in horses than it does in dogs. This is due in part to there being more horses that live outside. Many dogs have moved into the house where exposure is less likely. Horses, for the most part, live outdoors and therefore have a higher exposure likelihood. Many horses are curious and inquisitive by nature. We vaccinate our dogs for Rabies. Why not our horses? (It’s also important to note that this statistic takes into account that there are more dogs than horses. The frequency of Rabies in horses

is high relative to the entire horse population compared with the number of dogs affected with Rabies relative to the entire dog population). There are 14 cases of Equine Rabies reported annually in the United States. That’s 14 horses (that we know about) who die from Rabies every year. 7,200 animals die from Rabies each year. A good reason to vaccinate? In horses there is a furious (aggressive) form of Rabies as well as a dumb (quiet and sick acting) form. When we think about it in other animals it tends to be the aggressive form. Horses are more likely to exhibit the dumb form, which makes us less cautious when we are looking them over trying to figure out why they are feeling poorly. Another good reason for vaccination? Rabies has been called the great imitator. It can look like colic, choke, excessive salivation, depression, incoordination, ataxia, itching, self mutilation, or lameness. We could innocently be looking for any of these things. When a horse is bitten by a Rabid animal (or is exposed to the virus via an open wound or mucus membrane contact) the Rabies virus then replicates in the horses’ system. The Virus next travels to the brain or spinal cord. It is usually 2-9 weeks after the horse is bitten or exposed before it begins to show the various clinical signs described earlier. This can take up to six months! So, not only is it hard to tell what’s going on with the horse, it’s also very difficult to know where or how long ago it was bitten or exposed. Within 3 to 7 days following the clinical signs the disease is 100% fatal. Good reason to vaccinate? There are reports of people being exposed to the Rabies virus by horses in large groups (such as when a horse begins to show clinical signs while it is stabled at a big event) and also on a small scale. Vaccination is the key to prevention! It begins with an initial 2 dose series (just like almost any vaccine) and is followed by an annual booster. It’s also inexpensive. Another good reason to vaccinate?

New Riding Opportunities By Ken Carmichael, Back Country Horsemen - Ponderosa Chapter Some of the best riding opportunities, in my opinion, are on the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) properties west of Spokane. I find it nice to get out of the suburban area to ride some real open range country. Some of the BLM properties that I have ridden and enjoy include: • Fish Trap Lake • Escure Ranch (Rock Creek Recreation Area) • Lakeview Ranch • Telford • Coffee Pot Lake • Twin Lakes There are others that also make for good riding. This is primarily open range land. They manage for multiple use across regions and landscapes. Fish Trap Lake is close enough to Spokane for a day riding. Escure Ranch is further and we typically spend a weekend. It has a couple of corrals, highlines, restrooms and stock water. Lakeview is another overnight camp. We are still working to

improve this site but it will turn into a nice overnight camp. Telford is some nice open range riding. One of our projects is to identify a trail, work in progress. PONDEROSA CHAPTER Coffee Pot Lake and Twin Lakes are smaller sites and it has been a while since I was there. Always good exploring. PBCH is currently organizing work parties for Lakeview Ranch, Telford and Escure Ranch. At Lakeview we are rebuilding corrals that have deteriorated over time. They will be built to accommodate recreational stock. There is horse water there and we hope in the future to work with BLM on other improvements. At the Escure Ranch we will be putting in new trail signs and springs on the gates. At Telford we will be establishing a trail that has been planned by BLM for some time. All of these projects will enhance the riding experience. We call these work parties because we have fun. The Ponderosa Chapter of Back Country Horsemen (PBCH) enjoys riding and working on these properties because of the open terrain, fantastic riding and the fact that BLM staff is a fine group of people to work with. They encourage responsible horsemen to be on the land and work with us to have good facilities. To learn more about riding opportunities on BLM property please contact the BLM at 509-536-1200. Unfortunately their website www. blm.gov does not provide any information about specific locations. However, the office can provide information and maps. For more information about Ponderosa Back Country Horsemen see the website www.pbchw.com or call me at 509466-2225. I will always talk horses.
