Louisiana Equine Report....2014 Horseman’s Directory

7


In June of 2012 the Louisiana Equine Report was born. The horse industry was provided with a publication in which ALL horsemen and businesses could come together and have a united voice to loudly promote themselves and the industry as a whole. You, the horsemen, whether amateur enthusiasts or professionals responded in a way that proved, without a doubt, the need for a media outlet such as this to promote the horse industry was long overdue. The main purpose of the Louisiana Equine Report is to recognize the achievements of our great horseman and to keep the opportunities that we enjoy as horseman alive for future generations. As the publisher it is a humbling experience to have so much support from every discipline and every community in our state (now states! LA, MS, East TX). As the magazine has grown by leaps and bounds, we look forward to seeing the same trend occur for the Horseman’s Directory from this first issue in 2014 to next year and beyond! Be sure to check out the on-line version of this directory in the near future! www.laequinereport.com/horsemansdirectory THANK YOU to ALL of our advertisers! Without you none of this would be possible. It is rewarding to see the growth of the industry and hear such encouraging reports from our advertisers and readers. Please support the businesses that support your profession and passion!

Gearing Up for the State and National Finals by: Stephanie Rodrigue, LHSRA Secretary The National High School Rodeo Association (NHSRA) is an international, non-profit organization dedicated to the development of sportsmanship, horsemanship and character in youth through the sport of rodeo. Created by Texas educator and rodeo contestant Claude Mullins, the NHSRA held its first finals in Hallettsville, Texas, Aug. 25-27, 1949. The NHSRA membership consists of over 10,500 members from 41 states, five Canadian provinces and Australia, 2500 of which belong to the 6th, 7th and 8th grade Junior High Division, established in 2004.

The Louisiana High School Rodeo Association (LHSRA) is a charter member of the National High School Rodeo Association. Currently, 251 high school members and 138 Junior High Members are vying for the opportunity to compete at the Louisiana Junior High Finals Rodeo (LJHFR), scheduled for May 30 through June 1, and the Louisiana High School Finals Rodeo (LHSFR), scheduled for June 3 through June 7, 2014. Both events return to Burton Coliseum in Lake Charles, Louisiana, for the third year. To qualify for the LJHFR, junior high members must place in the top ten in their respective events at a minimum of one junior high qualifying rodeo. High school members must finish in the top 36 in their respective events, at the conclusion of the qualifying season, to qualify for the LHSFR. The 2013-14 seasons include 11 Junior High and 15 high school qualifying rodeos and traverse the state from Ruston to Hackberry and from Gonzales to Leesville. Following the Finals, the top four junior high cowboys and cowgirls will travel to Des Moines, Iowa, June 22-28, 2014, for the

National Junior High Finals Rodeo (NJHFR). This will be the first time Des Moines will host the NJHFR and only the second venue for the event since its inception in Gallup, New Mexico in 2005. Louisiana’s top four high school team in each event will compete July 13-19, 2014, in Rock Springs, Wyoming. In addition to saddles, buckles and other prizes, scholarships are also awarded at both the state and national levels. LHSRA will award over $15,000 in scholarships to graduating seniors on Friday, June 27, 2014, based on grade point average, ACT score, interview and writing skills, school, community and church activities, as well as rodeo participation. At the NHSFR, the NHSRA and the National High School Rodeo Foundation will award nearly one half million dollars in scholarships to outstanding seniors, as well as to qualifiers placing in various events. Other scholarship opportunities are available competitively across both divisions and all grade levels throughout the year. Louisiana’s cowboys and cowgirls continue the legacy of highly skilled competitors excelling both in and out of a variety of arenas. LHSRA alumni consist of NFR champions and qualifiers, as well as successful attorneys, veterinarians, accountants, teachers, military personnel, engineers, craftsmen and other successful and productive members of society, all exhibiting the character in sportsmanship upon which NHSRA was founded.

Therapeutic horseback riding is the use of horses and equine-assisted activities in order to achieve goals that enhance physical, emotional, social, cognitive, behavioral and educational skills for people who have disabilities. It not only focuses on the therapeutic riding skills but also the development of a relationship between horse and rider. It uses a team approach in order to provide treatment for the individual with the guidance of riding instructor. Horses provide a unique neuromuscular stimulation when being ridden through their one of a kind movement. Horses move in a rhythmic motion that mimics the human movement of walking. While riding, the horses stride acts to move the rider’s pelvis in the same rotation and side-to-side movement that occurs when walking. The horses adjustable gait promotes riders to constantly adjust the speed to achieve the desired pelvic motion while promoting strength, balance, coordination, flexibility and confidence. One does not have to ride to achieve the desired effects of therapy. Horses can act as an aid by giving those with disabilities a companion to care for. Grooming such as brushing, bathing, and currying aid in joint range of motion and also have a relaxing and calming effect. Source: Wikipedia

The symptoms of West Nile are neurological. The brain and spinal cord became inflamed and swell. Muscle tremors and altered gait are the main symptoms. Hind limbs can become weak. Paralysis, convulsions, difficulty swallowing, blindness, and coma may develop. There is no cure, and death occurs in 30-40% of affected horses. Most humans will never know that they were exposed to the West Nile virus, which is good news. Only one in five people will develop flu-like symptoms: fever, aches, rash, vomiting and diarrhea. But if the brain becomes infected and inflamed, the symptoms are similar to the equine symptoms: tremors, unsteadiness, paralysis, seizures, and coma. Luckily, fewer than 1% of infected people will progress to neurological symptoms. But 10% of those people who do progress will die. By vaccinating your horse, you are reducing the chance that a mosquito will infect you. http://www.ianrpubs.unl.edu/epublic/live/g1877/build/#target2 http://www.cdc.gov/westnile/symptoms/

Stallion Strategy Campaigning to Succeed! When the decision is made to retire a stallion to stud...he isn’t REALLY retired, he in fact enters a whole new career! Especially if he is not continuing to compete...you need to make sure his new profession is successful. If not managed and promoted properly, he can be from the best of blood lines and still not be fully booked in breeding season. Marketing a stallion at stud is much like running a political campaign. You are trying to obtain “votes” in the form of mare bookings for your stud over your competition. Proper marketing is key! Reaching your direct target customers is the best way to get those votes, The Louisiana Equine Report staff can help you with creating a heavy MARKET PRESENCE to reach more potential clients.

Keep your stallion in front of potential and current customers all year long! It’s important to not limit your marketing to breeding season alone. He eats all year... ensure he will be first on the short list when stallion choices are made! If not, you will miss customers. Out of sight is out of mind! Advertising in an all-breed publication such as the La Equine Report Stallion Issue, along with the regular issues all year and in this Horseman’s Directory will give your stallion maximum exposure to a diverse group of mare owners. Like any event, you have to be present to win! Get your Stallion noticed and recognized! Get the owner’s “votes,” and those mares booked!

Worm Resistance – Old Methods Still Apply By Dr. Kelly Hudspeth, DVM

Is there resistance to equine wormers? The answer is yes. This is not a new problem but one that continues to develop. The longer a wormer is used, the more likely resistance will develop. As a graduating veterinarian in 1992, I was so very lucky to start practice when ivermectin was relatively new on the market and the word was “ no resistance”. This continued to hold true for a number of years. However in 2013, ivermectin is not the silver bullet in equine horse wormers any longer. We do have to deal with an old problem of resistance to our wormers. The good news is old solutions are still very important. There are some tried and true methods that will help horse owners prevent or deal with wormer resistance. 1. Use the correct dose. One sure way to develop a population of resistant worms is to under dose the medicine. This occurs for various reasons but the two most common are missing the correct weight of the horse or trying to save money by giving a smaller dose. By doing this all worms are not eliminated . The ones that survive reproduce to bless us with a more resistant population ready for the next insult. Bottom line is give the correct dose.

108

www.laequinereport.com

2. Worm all horses at the same time. Concurrent dosing helps eliminate the worm burden on the pasture. If an owner spot worms by just worming the main horse being used or the one that “looks wormy”, the rest of the horse population provides a great pool of poop for reinfection! So to help clean the pasture, worm all horses at the same time. 3. Pasture rotation can be helpful. Moving to a new pasture after all horses have been wormed is also very helpful in preventing reinfection. If using pasture rotation, grazing sheep or other species is also helping in eliminating the worm burden in the pasture. If pasture rotation is not possible because of limited resources, pasture cleanup is helpful. 4. Pasture clean up. If your horse is being kept in a small area, literally removing feces is a good method to reduce reinfection not only after worming but throughout the year. The poop is the problem – it is the source of infection and allows the worm to complete the life cycle over and over. Remove the poop, remove the problem. 5. Use a slow rotation of wormers.


I believe a slow rotation leads to less resistance that the fast rotation. If you are worming every month, and using a different wormer each time, it may possibly be leading to a worm population that is resistant to a lot of wormers. Choose a wormer, follow with a fecal evaluation from your veterinarian, and stay with that wormer until it fails you. Most people would shutter if I said how long and how often I used an ivermectin based wormer on my horses without problems. By monitoring fecal counts and the overall appearance and wellbeing of your horse, you will know when that wormer is no longer working correctly and then it is time to rotate or change wormers. Some conventional wormers that are available are listed below with the drug name listed first, followed by some brand names: 1. Ivermectin – Zimecterin, Equvalan, Rotectin 1, Equimectrin, etc 2. Moxidectin – Quest 3. Fenbendazole – Panacur, Safegard 4. Pyrantel Pamoate – Strongid T , Strongid P 5. Oxibendazole – Anthelcide EQ Following any wormer with a round of Probiotics will help reestablish normal flora. From personal experience and dealing with my patients, there are times when everything fails. In that situation we

still have options. I personally prefer going to some of the herbal remedies. I have had great success with the herbal wormer produced by Silver Lining (# 13 Worm Foe or Herbal Wormer). It contains Chaparrel, Juniper, Garlic, Sage, Cascara, Clove, Kelp, Slippery Elm, and Black Walnut. I have used this with cases that have positive fecals and also with poor doers that have negative fecals. In both situations, the overall wellbeing of the horse has improved. I use this on all my horses at least once a year. Herbal products seem to have less side effects and promote the overall health of the horse. There are many of these type products on the market, so I would advise consulting with a veterinarian before making your choice. Parasites are a problem as old as the earth itself. But by using old methods for an old problem in today’s world, we can certainly control parasites and prevent them from having an adverse effect on our horses.

Do You Have An Equ

Before you know what’s abnormal, here’s a review of what’s normal for an adult horse:

Rectal Temperature: 99.5F-101.5F (Temps over 103 indicate a fever) Heart rate: 30-42 beats per minute (elevated HR’s at rest can indicate pain or distress) Respiration rate: 12-20 breaths per minute (elevated RR’s and effort can indicate respiratory distress, pain, and other problems.) Gut sounds: 2-3 per minute on both sides (an increase, decrease, or lack thereof could indicate colic or other GI disturbances) Capillary Refill Time: (the time it takes for color to return to gum tissue after pressing and releasing it with your thumb): less than 2 seconds (A prolonged CRT can indicate dehydration, shock, severe blood loss, etc.)

Mucous Membrane Color: (color of the tissues of the gums, nostrils, conjunctiva, and inner lips of the vulva): pink (red, pale pink, white, yellow, bluish purple can indicate specific problems) Mucous Membrane/Gum wetness: your finger should easily glide over the wet slippery surface of the gums (tacky or dry gums indicate dehydration)

Skin Pliability: the skin over the neck or upper eyelid should snap back into place when pinched and released (A prolonged skin tent indicates dehydration) Defecation & Urination: color, consistency, and volume of manure and urine should be typical of your horse (Any change in color, consistency, amount, lack thereof, or straining indicates a problem)

Be prepared before an emergency occurs: 1. Try to establish a good relationship with a local veterinarian (Ex. through wellness exams, vaccinations, dental exams/ floating, etc.) prior to an emergency shall one arise. 2. Have your veterinarian’s phone number on speed dial, in your trailer, and posted in your barn. 3. Know what’s normal for your horse (when they normally lay down, how much water they drink, etc.) 4. Always have a plan to transport your horse if an emergency arises. If you don’t own a truck and trailer (in operational order), have a list of friends who would be willing to haul for you.

uine Emergency??? 5. Know how to get to the vet clinic. And, know in advance a direct route to the closest surgical center in case you ever need to transport your horse in a hurry. 6. Keep a first aid kit complete with bandaging material both in your barn and in your trailer. A basic first aid kit should include: clean and sterile bandaging material (vet wrap, cotton rolls, gauze pads, adhesive tape, leg wraps, duct tape, etc.), scissors, rectal thermometer, stethoscope, gloves, antiseptic/antibacterial solution and scrub, flashlight and batteries, wire cutters. Some owners also like to have a dose of Bute or Banamine on hand.

What to do when an emergency arises: 1. Do not panic. The calmer you are, the calmer your horse will be. 2. Restrain your horse, and move the animal to a safe location if possible. 3. Assess your horse’s injury or sudden illness and vital signs. 4. Get help from a family member or friend if needed to help hold the horse, call the vet, get supplies from the first aid kit, etc. 5. Notify the veterinarian right away. Many injuries and illnesses can more easily be treated and with a better prognosis the sooner the veterinarian is notified and treatment is begun. (Exs. Colics are easier to treat at the first sign then they are if you wait hours for your horse to get better on his own. And, lacerations can only be successfully sutured within the first few hours of the injury occurring.) 6. Be prepared to give detailed information to the veterinarian about the horse’s condition, vital signs, location of a laceration, where the horse is located, etc.

7. Listen closely and follow your veterinarian’s instructions. Then head to the vet clinic, or wait for them to arrive. 8. Do not administer any drugs or attempt any treatments unless specifically instructed to do so by your vet.

If your horse exhibits any of the following, call your vet immediately: •Colic (Don’t wait on these, call on the very

first sign. Ex. Off feed) • An injury with bleeding that won’t stop • Obvious or suspected fractures • A cut or laceration that require sutures • Abrasions or lacerations over joints • Sudden lameness (Unwilling to move, odd stance, head nod) • Respiratory distress • Choking (distressed horse with feed material coming out of the nose) • Downed horse • Seizures • Tying Up • Diarrhea • All eye injuries (including squinted, swollen and, tearing eyes) • Fever (temperatures above 103) • Foreign bodies (such as a nail found in a hoof-do NOT pull the nail) • Sudden lethargy or depression

If you aren’t sure if you have an emergency, call your vet and ask!

Horses and Allergies Karen E. Davison, Ph.D.; Manager-Equine Technical Services Land O’Lakes Purina Feed

If you’ve ever experienced a horse with allergies, you know it can be a frustrating situation for both horse and horse owner. Frustrating for the horse with runny eyes and welts or itching and rubbing constantly while nothing seems to provide relief. Frustrating for the owner because you are trying desperately to find out what caused the problem and how to fix it. Allergic reactions are essentially an immune system in over-drive. An allergy is an abnormal reaction by the immune system against a normally harmless substance. The first exposure to the allergen causes white blood cells to produce antibodies that prepare the immune system for the next encounter with that same allergen. No outward signs occur at this point. The antibodies attaches to mast cells that are found in the respiratory system, gastrointestinal tract and the skin. During the next exposure, the allergens will combine with the antibodies and release chemicals, such as histamine or leukotrienes, which produce the allergy symptoms. The resulting allergy symptoms depend on where in the body the chemicals are released, and are generally some manifestation of inflammation. The most common symptoms in horses associated with allergies are skin irritations such as hives, welts, and itching (urticaria) or respiratory problems such as recurrent airway obstruction (RAO) which is very similar to asthma in people. Weepy eyes, nasal discharge or digestive upsets can also be symptoms of allergic reactions. These symptoms can be caused by contact dermatitis from exposure to organophosphate pesticides, heavy metals, dyes, bedding, topical medications, soaps, shampoos, blankets, wool and neat’s-foot oil. Other causes include atopy, an inherited predisposition to environmental allergen sensitivity, and “sweet itch” which is hypersensitivity to insects such as culicoides. Food allergies are commonly suspected but rarely prove to be the true cause of allergies in horses. Even in people, true food allergies affect only about 6 – 8% of children and 2% of adults. An allergic reaction to protein normally causes what are historically referred to as “protein bumps” on horses. Instead of large soft welts, protein bumps are usually hard little bumps like a large BB under the skin. They may be a reaction to a certain protein, not necessarily of dietary origin, but may be from a protein injected in the skin when insects bite. Other skin reactions cause scabby eruptions on the skin that usually itch, causing the horse to rub enough to lose hair and even cause sores. These may be from an allergic reaction or a bacterial infection. Scabs can be cultured to determine if there is a bacterial infection and a regimen of antibiotics may resolve the issue.

Allergy symptoms such as hives, runny eyes, nasal discharge and coughing may be more indicative of an inhaled allergen. Removing long-stemmed hay and using a complete feed that is formulated to replace hay often helps alleviate these problems. Other management options including immersing hay thoroughly in water before feeding, feeding in a trough at ground level, wetting stall bedding or changing the type of bedding, and providing as much pasture time as possible will help minimize exposure to respirable dust and molds. In almost all cases symptoms due to inhaled allergens will improve if the horse is kept outdoors. Even short amounts of time in barns or trailers will exacerbate symptoms. Determining the cause of allergy symptoms can be quite an exercise in trial and error. In humans, the gold standard for diagnosing food allergies is a double-blind, placebo-controlled food challenge. A reaction is expected within a few minutes to 2 hours after ingestion but this is a very involved and expensive procedure. Other allergy tests include a skin prick test or a patch test where extracts of various foods, or other potential allergens, are injected into the skin. Reactions (called weals) at the injection or prick site are measured to determine sensitivity level. Many horse owners opt for a blood analysis that will measure antibody levels to various potential allergens including insects, molds, pollens, plants and foods. These blood tests can provide some indication of what may be causing allergy symptoms but often have a high rate of false positives. The only reliable diagnosis of a food allergy is an elimination diet. One difficulty with this is finding a diet that contains none of the identified potential allergens but still meets the horse’s nutrient requirements.  Sometimes that is absolutely impossible because of the long list of potential allergens.  A horse that has previously been on a good plane of nutrition can be fed a hay-only diet for one to four weeks to see if the symptoms resolve. If they don’t improve then the symptoms weren’t caused by a food allergy and you have to look for other causes. If symptoms do resolve, then very gradually introduce one new food at a time in an effort to build a balanced diet that will not trigger an allergic response.  There is anecdotal evidence that feeding omega 3 fatty acids from a fat supplement such as Purina Nature’s Essentials Amplify TM supplement may help resolve symptoms of skin irritation and inflammation. Feeding 1 – 1.5 lbs per day of Amplify TM to horses suffering from sweet itch has been reported to result in cessation of itching and hair re-growth within 45 days.

Sabers, Horses, and General Patton George Patton, the general who led the U. S. Army through the “Battle of the Bulge” in World War II, was a master of the saber and a fine rider. He represented the United States at the 1912 Olympics in the pentathlon competition, which tested the abilities needed by the ideal soldier: swimming, running, shooting, fencing (saber), and riding (show jumping). Patton finished fifth overall and excelled in the saber bout, where he defeated the French world champion. The saber was the traditional weapon of the cavalry officer. He carried his reins in his left hand and slashed at the enemy with the saber in his right hand. In fencing competitions nowadays, saber fencers wear metal masks and metallic gloves and vests; “touches” are scored electronically. But the saber “lamé” vest only goes to the waist. Touches below the waist do not count. The reason is military and historical and equine: slashing “below the waist,” and risking hurting another officer’s horse, was cowardly and wasteful. After the Olympics Patton trained in saber at the French Cavalry School in Saumur. He returned to the States and became an instructor at Fort Riley, Kansas. His saber skills earned him the title “Master of the Sword.” He re-designed the Army saber (the first alteration since 1861), giving it a straight, two-edged blade, more suitable for a cavalry charge. He was an expert at one of the most difficult cavalry exercises: standing in the stirrups at full gallop, reins in left hand, saber pointed straight ahead with a straight arm…and spearing a dangling brass ring with the tip of the saber. Patton, born too late, missed using his skills in great cavalry charges and battles. In fact, he participated in the first motorized attack in U. S. Army history— the raid against Pancho Villa in 1916. (The “motors” of this attack were three 1915 Dodge touring cars.) By 1918 Patton was an expert in tank warfare and had commanded tank brigades with the U. S. Army in Europe. In between the two World Wars, the industrialized na-

tions started replacing horse cavalry with tanks. Patton was an early advocate of mechanized warfare. Before the attack on Pearl Harbor, Patton distinguished himself during war games and came to the attention of General Dwight D. Eisenhower, who would soon be the commander of Allied forces in Europe. Patton led the 7th and, later, the 3rd U. S. Army through North Africa, into Italy, through France, and into Germany. Alois Podhajsky, head of the Spanish Riding School in Vienna, where dressage was practiced in its purest form, asked Patton to protect the Lipizzan horses. Podhajsky feared that the Germans would use the horses for pulling artillery and that refugees would slaughter and eat the rest. After seeing a performance of “high school” dressage, Patton agreed, and the U. S. Army began protecting the stallions in Vienna. The Germans, however, had taken the mares from the Austrian breeding operation and had moved them to Czechoslovakia. The Russian Army overran that country as they pushed towards Berlin. Captured German officers, who loved horses and who feared Russians more than Americans, begged Patton to step in. Patton authorized a risky but successful foray into the Russian-held territory to liberate the mares. (The story of Patton and the Lipizzans is told in the Disney movie Miracle of the White Stallions.) Patton’s style as a general was forged in the cavalry tradition: he liked to move fast and attack hard. He saw tanks as the modern equivalent of horse troops, because tanks can conquer rough ground with speed, penetrate enemy lines, and frighten infantry. But Patton was a realist: he knew that the machine gun and improved artillery accuracy could stop a cavalry charge dead. It is possible that Patton worked hard to make Army horses obsolete because he had seen the horrible suffering of horses during World War I. It is also possible that he, a horseman, believed that sending horses to war was unethical. The picture was taken in 1914. The horse is Wooltex, full brother to Donau, winner of the 1910 Kentucky Derby. Patton rode Wooltex in steeplechases.


No Time for Bots As we enter into winter months in Louisiana, it’s time to deworm for Bots (Gastrophilus spp.). Bots (larva) are rarely associated with disease, but, as you can see from the photo (Figure 1), they are aesthetically unpleasing as they overwinter in the horse’s stomach and may indicate a larger parasite infestation.

Figure 2. Bot larva (thick arrow) and Habronemia larva (thin arrow) in the stomach of a horse as viewed by a 3 meter (9 ft) endoscope (Karl Storz Endoscope, Carlsbad, CA) inserted into the horses stomach.

Figure 3. Bot eggs (or nits) on the leg of a horse. Figure 1. Adult bot fly (http://entnemdept.ufl.edu/ creatures/livestock/horse_bot_fly.htm) (Courtesy of the University of Florida IFAS, Morgan McLendon)

Bot larvae overwinter in the horse’s stomach or small intestine. In the spring, when environmental temperatures increase, the bot larvae are passed out in the manure and eventually hatch into honey bee-sized flies (Figure 2). These female flies eventually lay and glue their eggs (or nits) to the legs of horses, donkeys and mules (Figure 3). Once on the legs, the eggs enter into the horse’s mouth when they chew or rub on their legs. In the mouth the eggs hatch out in 2 to 5 days, stimulated by the warm moist environment of the mouth. They spend approximately 3 weeks in the soft tissues of the lips, gums and tongue and then migrate to the stomach and small intestine, where they use sharp mouth hooks to attach to the lining. They spend about 7 months in the stomach before they pass out in a pile of manure. The mature larvae enter the soil between the manure pile and turn into pupae. In 2 week to 2 months these pupae emerge as flies and the life cycle starts all over again.

We recommend that you deworm your horse with a boticide once each year during late fall or early winter as a clean-out treatment for bots and other parasites. This will decrease the number of flies in the manure and decrease transmission of bots next spring. Dewormer pastes containing ivermectin or moxidectin have excellent activity against Bots and many other parasites affecting horses. By deworming in the fall or early winter you can improve the overall health of your horse during the winter and decrease the number of parasites that might contaminate your pastures next spring. As with all medications that you give to your horse, please check with your veterinarian for the best dewormer and deworming program for your horses. Frank M.

New Foal? What should you do?

10

Tips on Foal Care Dr. Frank M. Andrews

LVMA Equine Committee Professor and Director Equine Health Studies Program Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences School of Veterinary Medicine Louisiana State University

Communicate this to your veterinarian. Make an appointment so that your veterinarian can check the foal and the placenta (don’t throw the placenta away) within 12 to 24 hours.

1.

Vaccinate the mare 30 days before foaling with a product containing tetanus, Eastern Equine Encephalitis, Western Equine Encephalitis, and West Nile Virus. The normal gestation length for mares averages 335-345 days from the breeding date.

2.

Foals should take 15 to 30 minutes from the time the mare starts pushing. The normal foal presentation is similar to a diving position: both front feet should come first, with one foot slightly in front of the other and the soles facing down. The nose should be on top of the front limbs and the neck, shoulders, abdomen and hindquarters should then follow. If the foal presents in any other fashion (no head, only one foot, soles facing upward or tail first), then a veterinarian should be called immediately. Improperly positioned foals are a true emergency and require immediate attention if the foal is to have a chance of survival.

3. Once the foal is on the ground allow the mare

and foal may lay there for 5 to 10 minutes. The umbilicus should stay attached so that the foal can get extra blood. Allow the mare and foal to bond before you enter the stall. The foal should stand within 1 hour and start nursing within 2 hours. Within 3 hours the foal should pass meconium (first feces) and urinate (the foal should generate a good urine stream).

4. The foal should nurse every 30 to 40 minutes and should be bright and interested in the surrounding environment. If the foal is lethargic, slow, or wanders around the stall without nursing, this may indicate a “dummy foal” and you should call your veterinarian. 5. Call your veterinarian once the mare and foal are stable tell him/her that you have a newborn foal and describe the foal’s behavior. Keep a record of the foaling activity, including length of time it took the mare to foal, and the timing of events above.

6. During the veterinary visit, blood will be drawn to check to see if the foal got adequate colostrum (first milk) and enough antibodies. The Snap® test is the preferred test for this. 7.

Cleaning and dipping the navel in chlorhexidine (or a weak iodine) solution 2 to 3 times daily for the first 3-5 days of life is essential. Don’t use strong tincture of iodine (7%) as it will cauterize the navel and may lead to an abscess later. Check to make sure that the navel is dry and urine is not leaking out of the navel, a condition called “patent urachus”! If this should occur, call your veterinarian immediately.

8. The foal should suckle approximately 20 to

30 times daily and it should latch on to the tit and drink without interruption. If the foal nurses for a few seconds and then goes into the back of the stall or becomes colicky, then the foal may have gastric ulcers and will need to be evaluated by your veterinarian and treated.

9.

Nibbling on hay and grain occurs at approximately 1-3 weeks of age. Your foal should be curious about the stall or paddock and frisky (at times). At approximately 1 month you can start the foal on creep-feeding. Consult foal creep-feeding instructions on the feed bag.

10. Turnout and exercise is important for foals and mares after foaling. Observe the mare and foal during the 1st turnout, to avoid injury and problems with dogs, wildlife or other horses. Observe your foal frequently during the first month of life and keep your veterinarian up to date on the foal’s progress. Enjoy your newborn foal and congratulations!


Daily Care Management Horses require routine care and management to remain healthy and productive. Daily care should include good feeding and watering practices, daily grooming and exercise, good foot care and proper sanitation. By providing good care, horsemen can minimize the costs of health care and maximize their enjoyment of their horses. Providing daily feed and water is essential for a healthy horse. Lots of clean water should be available at all times. Horses will normally drink 10 to 20 gallons of water per day. Horses also need 5 to 10 pounds of grain and 10 to 20 pounds of hay per day to meet their nutrient requirements. Horses maintained on pasture will require less hay and grain. Horses should be fed according to their body condition. For example, a fat horse needs less feed, and a thin horse needs more feed. Horses should be groomed daily to maintain a good hair coat and to minimize skin problems. Always brush your horse both with and against the lay of the hair to loosen the dirt and dandruff and bring out the natural oils in the skin. By brushing against the natural direction of the hair, the dirt and dandruff underneath the hair are loosened. Grooming also massages the hair coat and stimulates blood supply and releases the natural oil in the skin. The horse should be washed after exercise to remove sweat and dirt. Many skin problems are a result of poor grooming. All horses need daily exercise to improve their mental and physical health. Horses that live in a closed environment have excess energy and may become nervous. Nervousness leads to stall vices. Inactive horses become dull, disinterested and may develop health problems. Research indicates horses will travel seven to 14 miles per day in a pasture. If your horse is

stalled, you should exercise him 30 minutes per day to keep him in good condition. In young growing horses or out-of-shape horses, exercise should begin very slowly and increase over a two- to three-month period. Your horse will be much more enjoyable if he is in good condition and feels like trying to perform for you. Regular foot care is needed to maintain a sound horse. The feet should be cleaned daily and trimmed or reshod every six to eight weeks. The inner part of the foot, which is called the frog, must be in contact with the ground. The frog is largely responsible for pumping blood out of the foot and the maintenance of a healthy foot. Feet that become too dry and brittle will crack and cause lameness. Additionally, excess moisture will break down the outer covering of the foot and can cause cracks and lameness. Daily cleaning and care can alleviate most of these problems. Daily cleaning of the horse’s environment will reduce insect populations and reduce skin and foot problems. Horsemen should clean stalls daily to remove feces and wet bedding. At least once a month stalls should be cleaned to ground level and lime or disinfectant should be sprinkled on the ground to kill bacteria. Manure should be stockpiled and composted for two to three months to kill parasite eggs. All horses should be vaccinated for contagious diseases and dewormed regularly. By providing good health care and good daily management, horsemen will have many years of enjoyment from their horses.

Tips for Horse Owners t Hurricane Season BATON ROUGE—With the hurricane season upon us, it is important for horse owners to ready themselves in advance for evacuation and other recommended tasks related to hurricane preparedness. Here are some tips from the Louisiana State Animal Response Team (LSART – www.lsart.org) and the Equine Health Studies Program at the LSU School of Veterinary Medicine (www. vetmed.lsu.edu) for effectively preparing horse owners in areas prone to hurricane damage: • Have a personal plan for your family including your animals and review and update the plan yearly (Saving the Whole Family is a useful guide from the American Veterinary Medical Association AVMA avma.org) • Be sure your horse is current regarding vaccinations for tetanus and the encephalitis viruses (Rabies, Eastern, Western, and West Nile). • Network a “plan” with the horse or farm animal-owning neighbors in your parish (get to know your neighbors, plan a meeting, talk through different scenarios, and identify the local resources for dealing with disaster situations) and be prepared to help one another. • Know your parish emergency managers!!! They are in charge during a disaster: Parish Office of Emergency Preparedness/ Management (e.g., Sheriff, Animal Control)

• Be sure that your horse has two forms of identification: (1) Permanent identification such as a microchip, tattoo or brand, and (2) Luggage-type tag secured to the tail and halter (be sure to use a leather halter for break-away purposes). Fetlock tags are useful and can be acquired on-line or from a local farm supply store or you can use a paint stick or non-toxic spray paint. Be sure to place your name, address, and phone number (phone number of someone out of state is best in the event of phone outages) legibly on the tags. • Be sure to store the record for the microchip number (i.e., E.I.A. or Coggins form) in an accessible location (it is recommended to keep a second copy of this information with a family member or friend in a distant location but where it will be easily accessible). • If you plan to evacuate (and you should ALWAYS do this if possible) in the event of a storm, have a destination and route(s) mapped out well in advance. It is important to evacuate your horses a sufficient distance from the coast and a good general guideline is north of Interstate 10, preferably north of Alexandria. January to May would be good months to prepare this plan. Arrange to leave a minimum of 72 hours before the arrival of the storm. The worst thing that can happen is to be stuck in traffic with a trailer full of horses and a hurricane approaching. Provide your neighbors with your evacuation contact information.


to Prepare for • Prepare a waterproof emergency animal care kit with all the items you normally use, including medications, salves or ointments, vetwrap, bandages, tape, etc. Place the kit in a safe place where you can easily access it after a storm. • Start early to clean up your property and remove all debris that may be tossed around by storm and hurricane force winds. Be careful of down power lines that can be “live” and represent a danger to people and animals. If you plan to weather the storm at home (this is not usually recommended), there are some general guidelines to follow: • The choice of keeping your horse in a barn or an open field is up to you. Use common sense, taking into consideration barn structure, trees, power lines, condition of surrounding properties and the likelihood of the property and structure to flood. Farms subject to storm surge or flash flooding should turn their horses out so horses are not trapped and thus drown. • Remove all items from the barn aisle and walls, and store them in a safe place. •Have at least a two to three week supply of hay (wrapped in plastic or waterproof tarp) and feed (stored in plastic water-tight containers, securing the container seams with duct tape). • Place these supplies in the highest (out of reach of flood waters) and driest area possible.

screws and fencing materials. Place this kit in a secure area before the storm hits so that it is easily accessible after the storm. Be sure to have an ample supply of flashlights and batteries and other non-perishable items. Listen to local radio stations in your area. If Internet access is available, access state-run websites that contain accurate status information (i.e., State Police, State University, Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry) and take all cautions/warning serious and act accordingly. Visit the Louisiana State Animal Response Team website at www.lsart.org for more detailed information regarding horse hurricane preparations and other emergency and health-related information. If your pet requires emergency medical care after-hours, you can bring your pet to the LSU Veterinary Teaching Hospital on Skip Bertman Drive; the hospital is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year for emergency cases. The number for the Small Animal Clinic is 225-578-9600, and the number for the Large Animal Clinic is 225578-9500. Information about the school and the hospital can be found at http://www.vetmed.lsu.edu.

• Fill clean plastic garbage cans with water, secure the tops, and place them in the barn for use after the storm. Have an emergency barn kit containing a chain saw and fuel, hammer(s), saw, nails, Louisiana Equine Report....2014 Horseman’s Directory 121


Equine Liability Issues, or in Other Words, Accidents Happen by Stacy R. Palowsky, Esq.1

Anyone who has ever been involved with horses knows that accidents happen, and if one is around horses long enough, one will either be injured or know someone who is. So, besides trying to stay safe from injury, everyone should also take steps to minimize the risk of being personally liable for injuries or damages to other people or their property. In Louisiana, this can be accomplished by complying with the “equine immunity statute.” Additionally, it is advisable to have the appropriate insurance in place as discussed further below. First, everyone should be aware that the personal injury liability releases or waivers that they are often asked to sign at barns or events, or which they request that boarders, students, or competitors sign, are not enforceable in Louisiana. Civil Code article 2004 provides as follows: Any clause is null that, in advance, excludes or limits the liability of one party for intentional or gross fault that causes damage to the other party. Any clause is null that, in advance, excludes or limits the liability of one party for causing physical injury to the other party. Thus, for example, if a lesson barn owner has a student sign a waiver that states that the barn owner or its employees will not be liable for any physical injury the student suffers while on the barn’s premises, that waiver will be invalid. I tell clients that these waivers will not be enforced, but it still makes clients comfortable having them. There is no harm in getting a waiver signed, and in certain cases, depending on the language, it can be used to show that the rider was aware of the risks he or she was assuming in partaking in an equine activity. Still, no one should rely on a signed release to provide protection from liability. Luckily, though, Louisiana has a statute that does provide some protection from liability arising from equine activities, but it is not absolute, and if “professionals” and “sponsors,” as those terms are defined in the statute, do not comply with certain signage requirements, their protection is waived. Louisiana Revised Statute 9:2795.3 provides in part that “an equine activity sponsor, 1

an equine professional, or any other person, . . . shall not be liable for an injury to or the death of a participant resulting from the inherent risks of equine activities . . . .”2 The statute also states that no one shall make any claim or maintain an action against or recover from a sponsor, professional, or any other person for injury, loss, damage, or death resulting from any of the inherent risks of equine activities. It is important to understand, though, that this does not mean that an injured person cannot sue. It simply means that the defendant should be able to get the suit dismissed eventually via an exception or motion, but remember that there are no guarantees in litigation. It is also vital to note that subsection C of the statute sets forth exceptions for which there will be liability. Namely, the statute does not prevent damage if a sponsor, professional, or any other person does any of the following: (1) Knowingly provides faulty equipment or tack that caused the injury; (2) Fails to make reasonable efforts to determine the ability of the participant to engage safely in the activity and to safely manage the particular horse based on the participant’s representations of his ability; (3) Owns, leases, or otherwise controls the land or facility upon which the participant was injured and which contained a dangerous latent condition which was known or should have been known and for which warning signs were not conspicuously posted; (4) Commits an act or omission that constitutes willful or wanton disregard for the safety of the participant and that caused the injury; (5) Intentionally injures the participant. Furthermore, and perhaps more importantly, a sponsor or professional will not be protected by this statute if certain warning language is not posted in one-inch black block letters “in a clearly visible location on or near any stable, corral, or

arena where the equine professional or the equine activity sponsor conducts equine activities.” I recommend to clients that the required warning signs be posted in several places, such as the entrance to the property, any barn entrances, and any and all arena entrances. Note also that most pre-printed warning signs include the wrong statute number and language. It seems that all the signs I have seen cite to La. R.S. 9:2795.1, which is the statute that addresses immunity from liability for “farm animal activities.” While that statute should also protect equine sponsors and professionals, it would be preferable to cite to and use the language required by the more recently enacted equine activity statute. This being said, the following language must be posted by professionals and sponsors, and out of an abundance of caution, it should also be posted by any person who has horses on his or her property. WARNING Under Louisiana law, an equine activity sponsor or equine professional is not liable for an injury to or the death of a participant in equine activities resulting from the inherent risks of equine activities, pursuant to R.S. 9:2795.3. The language must also appear in “clearly readable print” in any written contracts entered into by a professional or sponsor for lessons or services or for the rental of any horse or tack. As noted above, the protection provided by this statute is not absolute, and I find that people can be very creative when trying to either invoke or avoid this statute. I have seen litigation over whether the required signs were placed at all or were placed in proper locations, whether the defendant was a sponsor or professional who even had to have signs posted, whether injuries were caused by an “inherent risk” of equine activities, whether an injured person was a “participant,” and whether the injured person was partaking in an “equine activity.” For example, I was involved in a case years ago in which an injured party claimed that because she was riding a horse “just to try a saddle,” then she was not engaged in an equine activity when she got hurt. Luckily for the horse owner I represented, the court disagreed.

horse that escaped from his boarding barn and ran onto a road where he was struck and killed by a vehicle. The horse owner sued the barn owner who tried to invoke the protection of the equine immunity statute. The court found, though, that the risk of a horse getting loose and getting hit by a car was not an “inherent risk” of an equine activity; therefore, the barn owner was not protected by this statute. 3 If you are a professional, a sponsor of activities, or a horse owner, I recommend that you be familiar with this statute and that you do everything possible to ensure that you are protected by it in the event that someone is injured while you are giving lessons, renting horses, providing land for riding or for events, providing veterinary or farrier services, boarding horses, or even just giving a friend or a friend’s child a “pony ride” on your horse on your own property. Make sure you check the tack being used by the rider. Make sure you provide a horse suitable for the person’s stated riding ability. And finally, make sure your land does not have any hidden defects, and if it does, clearly mark them. Another method of minimizing personal liability is through maintaining insurance which will cover damages to third parties. Most horse owners are probably familiar with mortality and major medical policies which provide coverage for damage to an owned or leased horse. However, there are also various types of insurance available to protect horse owners and professionals from liability for damage to third parties. The most common types of liability coverage include the following: (1) Equine Third-Party Liability: This coverage is usually available at an extra cost as an endorsement to an equine mortality policy. Continued on page 126

Further, there is a reported case involving a The entirety ofLouisiana the statute can be found at http://www.legis.la.gov/legis/law.aspx?d=181347. All pertinent terms are defined and all Equine Report....2014 Horseman’s Directory 123 pertinent exceptions are set forth therein.

Continued from page 125 Equine Liability Issues, or in Other Words, Accidents Happen by Stacy R. Palowsky, Esq.1

Note, though, that it will sometimes exclude coverage for injuries caused by the insured’s horse to persons boarding or training the horse or to farriers or veterinarians. (2) Equine Commercial General Liability (CGL): This is the most common liability policy, and it provides the broadest coverage and highest limits. The intent of it is to cover “bodily injury” and “property damage” claims by third parties (but not employees) arising out of general equine activities and operations of the insured’s business. Be aware, however, that insurers often rely on an exclusion to deny coverage for injuries that occur while a horse is being loaded or unloaded from a trailer, and we all know that can be a dangerous time depending on the horse. Also be aware that there are normally exclusions for damage to personal property, such as saddles, owned by third parties but in the “care, custody or control” of the insured. In other words, if a boarder’s saddle is damaged or stolen, the barn owner’s equine CGL policy will probably not cover that loss. (3) Equine Care, Custody, or Control: This coverage, which is available as a policy or as an endorsement to a CGL policy, covers claims for liability due to the death, injury, illness, or theft of a non-owned horse in the insured’s care, custody, or control. However, it generally only covers liability for damage as a result of the insured’s negligence. (4) Equine Personal Liability Endorsement: This is generally an endorsement to a CGL policy which is available to the insured to cover claims by third parties for bodily injury or property damage caused by owned or leased horses. Note that there are usually exclusions for damages to a trainer, veterinarian, farrier, or boarding barn owner or employee. (5) Equine Professional Liability Endorsement: This is also generally an endorsement to a CGL policy available to cover the insured from claims by third parties for damages arising from the insured’s negligence in providing professional equine services. This is similar to an errors and omissions, or “E & O,” policy available to other professionals. This coverage is generally not

limited to “bodily injury” or “property damage” as the CGL policy is, and the CGL policy’s exclusion for damage to personal property in the care, custody, or control of the insured is normally removed. Note that there will probably be no coverage for liability arising from any fraudulent or criminal acts or from violations of any statute or rules of any equine governing body. (6) Normally there is also comprehensive personal liability coverage available to farm owners under their farm property coverage. This is similar to the liability coverage found in a homeowner’s policy. People often do not purchase insurance because they think they will not need it, or they think the premiums are too high. One of the advantages to having insurance, however, is that if the insured gets sued, the insurance company will likely have to pay his or her legal fees. Now, the duty for an insurer to provide a defense for its insured, i.e., pay legal fees, is not absolute, but it is broader than the duty to provide coverage for a judgment rendered against the insured. Anyone who has ever had to hire a lawyer knows that legal fees add up quickly, so having those paid by an insurance company can definitely be worth the premiums even if the policy ends up not covering the judgment or the insured is found not liable. Note that if an insured does submit a claim or a lawsuit, though, and the insurer refuses to provide a defense and/or coverage, the insured should consider hiring counsel to determine if the insurer’s decision was correct. There are often penalties available if the insurer breaches the duty of good faith and fair dealing owed to its insured. One last caveat is that insurance coverage is dependent on the language of the policy. So, once a policy is received, the insured must carefully read all the policy language, including the exclusions and endorsements, to confirm that the coverage desired is actually provided. If the insured does not understand the policy, he or she should contact the agent who sold the policy to discuss any questions or concerns. Under certain circumstances, it might also be worth having an attorney experienced in insurance issues review the policy. After all, it is better to find out that certain coverages are not provided before an accident happens, not after. Lack of coverage can be remedied before liability arises, but not after.

Note also that if the vehicle owner had made a claim for injuries or damages, the barn owner would have probably been liable to the vehicle owner as well for allowing the horse to escape the property and enter the roadway. www.laequinereport.com
