Washington State University’s Veterinary Teaching Hospital in Pullman, WA has served the Pacific Northwest since 1899. The primary mission of the college’s equine services, is to provide the best possible medical and surgical care for client-owned horses while providing education and cutting edge research. We strive to form a partnership with your veterinarian where you and your horse experience a gold standard of medical care and customer service. Spring is the most exciting time of year for most of us, foaling season. Owners and veterinarians have patiently anticipated the arrival of a foal for nearly a year and now finally they begin to arrive. Washington State University offers the region’s only 24-hour, fully staffed neonatal ICU served by board-certified equine specialists. We hope you don’t need us, but we stand ready to serve you and your horses’ needs for critical care. Spring also means breeding gets underway. Our theriogenology or reproductive medicine service has two board-certified equine reproduction specialists whose expertise covers the most challenging mare and stallion breeding issues. We offer breeding soundness examinations on both mares and stallions as well as pregnancy and fetal evaluations. In addition, we can meet your embryo transfer or artificial insemination (AI) needs as well as semen collection and freezing for future use, nearby or shipped to the destination of your choice. For those not conducting horse breeding, spring means you’re getting horses out after a long winter. WSU’s performance medicine and surgery team can help your horses get back to their activities and get you back in the saddle. Whether it is an old injury, arthritis, or a new injury, our specialist is ready to help you develop a treatment plan. We offer the region’s most technically-advanced diagnostic

Ann Kirk Sensible Saddle Basics – Part 1 March has had some great weather and I am riding my own horses to get back in shape for the training season, which will already have started by the time you read this article. I am riding my faithful gelding, Trinity, 16 years old, whom I can leave forever and then just jump on him with anything on his head and take my 2 little grandchildren for a ride without worries. Don't we all wish we had a handful of horses like that. But, then there are the 2 mares, Sable and Jazz, both also 16, that I am riding. I have had Sable since she was a foal so all the saddling problems she has were caused by me. I have owned Jazz 4½ years now. She came with a saddling issue that was so dangerous that her owners were going to have her put down. The vets called me and I took her to rehab. She has become a great mare to ride. But both these horses, for similar reasons, are not “saddle and go” horses. Their warm-up gets shorter every season, but it will always be there and I would like to share with you what I have learned from them. First, let me say a few things about the saddle itself. I am no expert when it comes to saddle fit, but some things are obvious red flags. If your saddle touches the bony part of the withers when cinched down, it is going to cause an extreme amount of pain for the horse. Or if it almost touches, it will cause problems when your weight is in the saddle.

My goal is to connect

you with your horse by teaching you sensible,

hands-on exercises that will reduce frustration

Same is true the other way if your saddle is obviously too narrow. A lot can be forgiven or corrected with a good saddle pad, but starting with basically the right fit is best. Too much padding also causes problems. The saddle will be hard to get cinched on secure enough and having a loose saddle is one accident that should never happen! It also can produce uneven pressure or too much heat on the back due to restricted air flow through too many pads. Now, I’m a firm believer that no horse really loves being saddled but doing what we can to make it as comfortable as possible is just good horsemanship. The type of rigging you use will vary according to who you talk to about what’s best. I like a deep felt saddle pad or one with some kind of shock absorption but don't always use one. I like a Neoprene covered cinch as it is easy to clean

and seldom will gall, but some horses have skin reactions to them. The nylon cinch straps are easier to get tightened, but the leather ones are actually more comfortable to the horse as the leather has some give. I prefer the double rigging on my saddles. I also insist on the stirrup leathers being ‘balance ride’ hung. They are more forward than a standard saddle which allows me to keep my legs in the best position for safety. And a ‘balance ride’ hung stirrup doesn’t put as much stress on the knees, so I can ride without knee pain. Another factor is your horse’s wither style. In my experience, rounder or mutton withered horses are harder to find a comfortable saddle for than high withered horses. A high withered horse does not have the huge muscle mass where the front of the saddle sits. Most of the chronic saddling problems I have dealt with have been on round withered horses. They get sore faster if the saddle fit is not ideal, and most even start out sensitive to pressure on their withers even if they have never been saddled before. As a general rule, they seem to need more attention to get them accepting of the saddle. The style of riding will determine how exact the saddle fit needs to be. The more athletic the training/riding, the more impact the saddle has on the horse’s body. If I am trail riding, I am mostly walking or working in a straight line. Other than going down steep grades, the pressure of the saddle will be fairly uniform. On the other hand, if I am doing arena work with lots of loping, stopping, turning and such, the saddle impact will be much different. So give that some thought when checking saddle choices for your horse. Do your homework and make an informed choice for your horse. Set the saddle on bareback without the pad so you can see exactly how it conforms to your horse’s back. One thing I would say is don’t get something just because it looks cool or because it is ‘labeled’ for your breed of horse. Horses are horses and yours won’t do better just because it has the ‘breed-name’ bit or saddle. People train horses, not equipment. Get a saddle that is versatile, comfortable (for the horse and you) and will fit most horses. Though I won’t get to the details of saddling this time, let me say a few things in preparation. As you should know, there is more to it than just tying the horse up, throwing the saddle on, cinching it tight and turning him loose. Though it might seem exciting (to some) to see the horse buck and kick as it fights to get that ‘thing’ off, I have found it is not the best way. It can do a lot of damage, both physically and emotionally to the horse. Some seem to work it out fairly quick on their own, but I have seen far too many get hurt. I’ve seen legs cut and faces pealed open from running into the fencing. Others become anxious and fearful about the saddle because their first experiences were so traumatic. And, if you add emotion by chasing them and running them until they quit bucking, it just makes them worse. That was definitely Jazz’s problem. She was so terrified of just the Round Pen, much less the saddle, I knew she had not been handled well or taught what she could do to avoid the fear when saddled. When a horse gets scared and its emotions are maxed too long, it can lock in a stronger emotional response the next time that situation is presented. When I saddle a horse and let

it buck, the horse doesn’t realize the bucking is causing the flapping and banging of the saddle. He believes he’s under attack and he’s trying to free himself. Thus, saddling becomes a traumatic event and leads to unexpected explosions even while riding. Sable started easy but I pushed her too fast to just accept it. I could ride her for an hour or more and be just fine. But, if something spooked her, she would unexpectedly blow up. When she would tighten from the spook, the saddle would tighten and ‘grab’ her and she would buck. A horse who is afraid of the saddle can only be made safe by controlling him during the saddling process and by teaching him the correct response to his fear. Next article, I will explain my way, that I learned from Sable, of walking a horse through the saddling process so I won’t cause a problem that will need fixing later. When Jazz came along, I used it on her to undo what had been done to her and now she is safe. I have used this method on a number of horses and it has always proven effective. If you have questions about how to saddle safely, how to rehab a horse already having problems or about any other area with your horse, come to the Spring Tune-up Clinic, May 1-3, which includes a 3 hour Round Pen Demo. It will start at 4:00pm on Friday. Questions are encouraged so bring your notebook and a chair. Saturday and Sunday will be horse and rider participation. Hope to see you there. — God Bless, Ann For more information on Ann Kirk and her Sensible Horsemanship Program, go to www.annkirk.com. These lessons are available on the Sensible Horsemanship DVDs.

On The edge Of COmmOn SenSe by Baxter Black, DVM

One of the Mysteries of Life Why is it that we know couples that beg the question, “What does she see in him?” I’m not going to use names for the sake of privacy. I can’t actually say ‘to protect the innocent’. I’m just going to use the alias of Geraldo and Lucinda. I was on the phone with one of my good friends, Geraldo Uno. He had thrown a team roping party and asked our mutual friend, Geraldo Dos to come and help. “He’s the best there is at what he does.” “You bet,” I agreed. “He sure got lucky.” I was referring to Lucinda Dos, his second official wife. After what seemed like years of relationships and children, child support and houses, she showed up in his life. Now he has a business, grandkids and the “Doses” are happy. “I never could figure out what she saw in him?” Geraldo Uno said, “Well, look at you!” I had to agree. A failed marriage, two failed proposals, miles of alimony, a victim of mergers that cost me jobs, frivolous relationships, lack of discipline and no real concept of a happy home. Then out of

the blue my own Lucinda stuck an arrow in my heart that has lasted for years. I did point out that he, Geraldo Uno, had no room to talk; married once, alimony, child support payments, she kept his mother’s wedding ring, had job after job, fell in love with a lady that was fatally ill, then Lucinda Uno found him. They are a power couple today and inseparable. “Why?” I asked, “did we get so lucky?” In our circle of friends there seems to be a preponderance of flawed Geraldos, as I refer to them, “People you wouldn’t have in your home on a holiday.” Some of us have not found their Lucinda. When you look at our accomplishments you begin to understand why. Captured with a stun gun, been in a Mexican jail, officially detained for molesting a stamp machine in the John Wayne airport, owns a bank but can’t get a date, is a charter member of Alcoholics Anonymous, crashed his helicopter trying to dive under a power line, has been run over by a Jeep while hunting and sold used cars…and they are still out there! But there is a legitimate handful who, like myself, has somehow found true happiness. Geraldo Uno said, “I think I know how it happens. Look at what they endured before we came along.” He was right. Most all of the Lucindas that found us Geraldos have come from a previous life so unhappy and unfulfilled that we looked good! We’re not abusive or stingy or overbearing or mean, we’re just not quite housebroken. Our Lucindas simply had lesser expectations the second time around and we fit the bill. www.baxterblack.com

MRI will be the Standard of Care for your Horse Robert K. Schneider, DVM, MS, McKinlay & Peters Equine Hospital, Spokane, WA The number one thing a veterinarian needs to know when treating a horse with a lameness problem is the cause of the problem. This removes the guesswork from the treatment of the horse, and greatly improves the horse’s chances of responding to treatment. It allows us to choose the best option whether it is appropriate rest and rehabilitation, anti-inflammatory medications, joint injections, surgery, or biologic treatments like bone marrow derived stem cell therapy. Directing the appropriate treatment at the source of the problem greatly improves our chances of returning a lame horse to performance. MRI is a powerful diagnostic tool that allows us to see bone, cartilage, tendon, and ligament problems. It has become the standard of care for diagnosing injuries in human athletes. It is just as valuable for diagnosing problems in athletic horses. It will become the standard of care for horses with injuries and lameness problems. If you have a horse with a lameness problem, especially one where a diagnosis cannot be made from radiographs, you should consider having an MRI evaluation of your horse. Not all MRI evaluations are the same. This is important for horse owners to know. The standard of care in humans is to use a high-field magnet (1.0 or 1.5 Tesla) because of the quality of the image that is obtained. Unfortunately, studies performed in low-field and standing magnets just do not give the detail and image quality that is required to make an accurate diagnosis in many cases. Therefore, when considering an MRI it is important to have the study performed in a high-field magnet.

problem is the most important step you can take when making decisions about treatment. The following three case examples illustrate how MRI affected treatment in three horses. The horse’s names have been changed to provide confidentiality. Case 1: Phoenix Rising is a 9-year-old Arabian endurance horse. He experienced an injury to his pastern that resulted in a large bone proliferation (see the xray). He was rested for six months but lameness persisted. Two more months lapsed with lameness before an MRI was performed (see images below).

The xray shows bone proliferation observed in the horse’s pastern region. The MRI image shows a thickened ligament (distal digital annular ligament) down in this horse’s foot below the bulbs of the heel. This is the cause of this horse’s lameness problem, not the bone proliferation observed on the xray.

The image on the left is from a low-field magnet. The image on the right is from a high-field magnet, and demonstrates the high quality image that can be obtained. A high quality image is necessary to make an accurate diagnosis from an MRI study.

MRI in horses does require general anesthesia. While this does involve some risk, anesthetic techniques have improved greatly, and horses are routinely anesthetized for all kinds of procedures from radiographs to surgery. Today the incidence of problems from general anesthesia lasting less than two hours is very low when performed by an experienced anesthetist. It is necessary because imaging in all high-field magnets currently requires general anesthesia. MRI was first performed on horses in 1997. Thousands of horses have had an MRI since then. It yields an accurate diagnosis in more than 95% of the cases. Knowing the horse’s

This horse has an injury to a ligament in the foot that is below the bone proliferation observed on xrays. The horse needs surgery to transect the scarred ligament. Surgery to remove the bone would have accomplished very little. MRI is the only way an accurate diagnosis could be made in this case. Case 2: Diana is a 6-year-old Warmblood used for dressage. The horse developed a lameness that was localized to a rear fetlock with nerve blocks. Because xrays were normal, she was rested for six months to treat a suspected ligament injury. As soon as she started back in work the lameness returned. MRI was performed and an area of bone and cartilage damage was found. (See the image). The bright white area in the bone beneath the joint is due to a local cartilage and bone abnormality that was the cause of this horse’s lameness.

The horse had arthroscopic surgery, and eventually returned to soundness and performance. Case 3: The last image is of a Thoroughbred racehorse that developed repeated lameness every time he trained. The lameness was localized to the fetlock but xrays were normal. MRI revealed a bone injury on the end of the cannon bone that required rest and an exercise program that allowed the

horse to heal and remodel the bone injury. The large black area in the end of the cannon bone is due to a bone injury. This abnormality can only be diagnosed with MRI.

These are but three of hundreds of cases where MRI changed what was being done for treatment, and allowed horses to return to performance. McKinlay & Peters Equine Hospital has recently acquired a high-field (1.5 Tesla) magnet. Our goal is to make high-field MRI available to most horse owners. If your horse has a lameness problem that is not getting diagnosed, please contact our office.

Are You Ready for the Foaling & Breeding Season? The Equine Theriogenology team at WSU-VTH Spring is here and the days are getting longer, which is a major cue for horses to start their breeding season. Whether you are a professional or a hobby horse breeder, this is the time of the year to ensure that every detail of foaling and breeding is covered and not left to chance. Although some specialty breeders started their foaling and breeding season in January using artificial lighting, most horses bred in our region will be managed during the natural breeding season. In the Pacific Northwest, the equine breeding season runs from March until early September. However, there may be some regional and individual variations as to the length of the breeding season. The first and foremost aspect in horse breeding is to establish a good partnership with a veterinarian who will tend to all your horses’ (mares and stallions) needs, from pre-breeding evaluation to foaling and the post-partum period. The following are checklists for reproductive needs for each category:. 1. Checklist for the mare in late pregnancy (expecting) By this time of the year (early spring) most mares should be in the last trimester of pregnancy. Hopefully, a thorough health and wellness program has been discussed with the attending veterinarian to establish the mare’s needs as far as nutrition, vaccinations, and parasite control. The following critical points need to be reviewed:

• Expected foaling date: Calculate the expected foaling date based on the day of ovulation. There are many websites that can help the breeder calculate the expected foaling date. Some of these sites also make recommendations regarding vaccinations. It is important to verify with your veterinarian the vaccination program that is appropriate for your mare(s). • Nutrition: Make sure that the mare’s nutrition is adjusted to meet the needs of the rapidly growing fetus during the last 3 months of pregnancy. • Vaccination: Your mare should be current on vaccinations against the major equine infectious diseases. The last 6 to 8 weeks of pregnancy are important for preparation of colostrum. Vaccination during this period helps protect the foal through the mare’s production of good quality colostrum. Vaccination against the abortive form of Equine Herpes Virus-1 should have been implemented starting at 5th month of pregnancy. • Parasite control: Your mare should be on a regular deworming and fecal analysis protocol that is safe for pregnancy and established by your veterinarian. • Mare monitoring: Late term mares should be monitored closely in the last 3 weeks of pregnancy. Most importantly, paying attention to the mare’s comfort, appetite, and progress in terms of mammary gland (udder) development.

Mares should be examined by a veterinarian any time there is a deviation from normal behavior or appearance. A veterinarian should also examine a mare with the sudden appearance of or absence of mammary gland development. Some mares tend to develop moderate to significant edema in their ventral abdomen and mammary gland and should be monitored and examined on a case-by-case basis. • Preparation for foaling: A clean, well-lit, large, deeply bedded stall should be provided for foaling. Impending foaling may be monitored using several electronic (webcam, etc…) or biochemical (calcium content of mammary sections) techniques. These should be discussed with your veterinarian • Foaling and post-foaling plan: Although the majority of foalings are uneventful, complications quickly become an emergency and pose high risk for the foal and the mare. No matter what the history is, an emergency plan should be in place (see below). The mare and foal should be examined by the veterinarian within 24 hours of foaling. Mares can still have tears or lesions in their birth canal even if the foaling appeared to be normal. Foals should be examined for any abnormalities and evaluated for passive transfer of immunity through the colostrum. We recommend that the placenta be kept in the refrigerator for examination by the veterinarian at the time of the postpartum examination. • Emergency plans: The most important aspect of an emergency plan is to have access to immediate veterinary help if a complication should arise during or immediately after foaling. Ideally, high risk mares or mares belonging to novice breeders should foal in a facility that is equipped to

provide emergency care for the foal and/or mare if needed. An emergency phone number should be posted by the mare’s stall and access to a trailer should be arranged to expedite transport if needed. • Foal heat breeding: The decision to re-breed the mare at foal heat should be made on recommendation by your veterinarian based on postpartum evaluation. 2. Checklist for breeding or artificial insemination • Although natural cover is still practiced by many horse breeders, the most common mode of breeding, to take advantage of the best available genetics, is artificial insemination. Most artificial inseminations are performed with cooled-shipped semen, although use of frozen-thawed semen is becoming more prevalent. No matter which modality of breeding is used, the success rate is extremely dependent on the quality of semen and reduction of the risks of contamination of the uterus. Most mares with no prior reproductive or health problems should not require extensive veterinary management associated with breeding. However, in order to avoid any delays or complications there should be clear communication with the stallion owners, particularly as to requirements for shipping semen (see check list for breeding stallions). Mares should undergo a general health and breeding soundness examination at least one estrous cycle prior to the intended breeding date. It is important to understand and discuss with your veterinarian the following points: • What will the breeding soundness examination entail? Some stallion owners require a negative uterine culture before

they agree to breed a mare using natural cover or ship semen for a mare to be bred using artificial insemination • Frequency of examination. Timing of insemination in relation to ovulation is critical for conception. In general, mares should be inseminated within the 24 hours prior to ovulation if cooled-shipped semen is used. However, when frozen-thawed semen is used, the timing should be much closer to ovulation (6 hours before to 6 hours after). • Mare should be evaluated for ovulation and for any overt accumulation of fluid after insemination. Mares with fluid accumulation within the uterus prior to or after insemination will require special treatments and more advanced management. • All inseminated mares should be scheduled for pregnancy diagnosis 14 to 15 days after ovulation. • If confirmed pregnant, mares should be re-examined again between 25 to 30 days and at 60 days of gestation. Some veterinarians may suggest re-evaluation of the pregnancy at 4 to 5 months of gestation. 3. Checklist for the barren mare • If your mare remained barren from the previous season or lost her pregnancy, it is important to discuss with your veterinarian a complete health and reproductive evaluation (complete breeding soundness examination). This examination should provide you with enough information to make an informed decision regarding a breeding management plan for your mare. The following critical points need to be reviewed: • Physical examination should focus on any chronic health problems that may jeopardize fertility and/or the ability of the mare to carry a pregnancy. Some of the common systemic problems that may affect a mare’s reproductive abilities are any metabolic or hormonal disorders, chronic laminitis, and chronic respiratory disease. • The breeding soundness examination should include an endometrial (uterine) biopsy. A uterine biopsy is the gold standard for predicting the chances for a mare to carry a pregnancy to term. • If following a physical examination, breeding soundness examination, uterine biopsy, and any necessary additional diagnostic testing a mare is determined to have a very poor chance of carrying a foal to term embryo collection and transfer to a recipient mare should be discussed. 4. Checklist for a breeding stallion or semen shipment • If you are standing a stallion for either natural cover or semen shipping, it is important that you have an established protocol with an attending veterinarian. The following points should be considered: • All stallions should undergo a complete breeding soundness examination at the beginning of the breeding season in order to avoid any surprises. Please remember that fertility (semen quality) of a stallion can change dramatically from one season to another or within the same season. • Testing is available for some genetic diseases. For breeds with known genetic diseases, the stallion should be tested and of known disease status (ie. HYPP, etc). It is recommended to discuss genetic testing with your veterinarian.

• For those breeds that accept artificial insemination with frozen semen, we always recommend freezing semen from stallions for preservation of genetics and to be used for artificial insemination in case the stallion is incapacitated. • Many states have strict regulations as to requirements for importation of semen, including Washington, Idaho, and Montana. The following may or may not be required of the stallion depending on the state receiving the semen shipment: - Requirement of a veterinary health certificate with each semen shipment. - Requirement of a negative Coggins (Equine Infectious Anemia) test. - Requirement of proof of negative testing for venereal diseases (ie. Equine Arteritis Virus). - Requirement of a yearly permit number for semen importation into the state. - Shipment of cooled-shipped semen to/from Canada and the United States can be complicated by delays at Customs, which may decrease semen quality. Additional requirements for international shipment of semen should be discussed with your veterinarian. We hope that these short checklists for various breeding situations will help in organizing your thoughts and activities as the foaling and breeding season approaches. It is important to verify with your veterinarian every aspect of your breeding plan to maximize reproductive potential.
