VCAHG Editors Note: Thankyou to everyone who contributed articles and photos for our Newsletter. Your input is what makes these Newsletters possible. I have thoroughly enjoyed compiling the first three Newsletters for our group, as well as the “conversations” struck up via email and ‘chat’. Since our last Newsletter, The Victorian Crabbet Arabian Horse Group Inc. now has the Crabbet Feature Ring behind us. Kindly offered by the Western District Arabian Riders and Breeders Inc, the Crabbet Ring formed a fourth ring for the WDARAB Spectacular held on the 9th December 2012.

We would also like to offer a huge thanks to WDARAB for allowing us this opportunity to showcase the Crabbet Arabian, and we look forward to continuing as part of their wonderful Spectacular. It is a very well run, friendly show held in a picturesque country setting. Although our Crabbet Ring entries were not as high as wished, a great time was had by those who participated. Discussions have already begun on the inclusion of extra events, which will expand the amount of eligible entries in the future. Once again, our wonderful sponsors helped make our Crabbet ring possible and the VCAHG Inc, are grateful for their generosity. The raffle on the day gained great interest and we would like to thank Stephen Pearson and Jo Costigan of Arfaja Arabians for their kind donation of a ‘service’ to one of their stallions, Arfaja Rococo or Mill Park Blaidd. Our competitors were thrilled with the floral garlands thanks goes to Dee Kelly for our Grand Supreme Champion garland and Helen Kirkpatrick for our Champion garlands. Our winners’ responses in and out of the show ring were priceless, including tears of joy. These are the reactions which remind us why we work so hard to hold events. To ensure that we can continue to offer show opportunities for Crabbet Arabians in their own right, it is essential that Crabbet owners and breeders support us by bringing their Crabbet Arabians along to events.

Thankfully blue skies prevailed, with only the chilled wind blasts to test all those not sheltered — especially the horses. A huge thanks goes to our judge on the day Marillyn O’Dea of Inshallah Arabians in NSW, who endured the windy conditions all day, with a smile. We have received so many compliments both on the day and since the show, on the high standard of judging.

Membership numbers have increased since the show and we look forward to seeing some of our new members at our upcoming meetings. I hope you all had a safe and happy festive season and new year. For those of you in the fire and flood affected areas, I hope you have managed to remain safe from threat and continue to do so. It has certainly been a turbulent beginning to the year.

Arfaja Arabians kindly donated a service to one of their Pure Crabbet Arabian Stallions as part of

the ‘Spectacular’ WDARAB Inc. Raffle held on the 9th December 2012.

President’s Report Victorian Crabbet owners, breeders and enthusiasts were treated to a wonderful exhibit at the quaint showground in Kingston on December 9th, 2012. Approximately halfway between Ballarat and Daylesford, the idyllic grounds are nestled between a range of old pines, oaks and elms. A truly wonderful venue to compete and spectate Crabbet Arabians! Following VCAHG Inc.’s 2011 show in Bendigo, it was felt that the best way to promote the history of Crabbet and Crabbet Arabian horses to the general public was to integrate a Crabbet program into an existing Arabian horse show. Stephen Pearson of the Arfaja Stud, member of both VCAHG Inc. and Western District Arabian Riders & Breeders Inc. (WDARAB), suggested the idea to both clubs and it soon took shape. After a number of meetings and correspondence between the two committees, WDARAB very kindly offered to host a Crabbet Feature ring as part of their annual A Class Arabian show. The Crabbet Feature ring as part of the 2012 WDARAB Arabian Spectacular was judged by the experienced Crabbet breeder, Mrs Marillyn O’Dea of Inshallah Arabians. Despite the small number of entrants, Mrs O’Dea was kept busy judging the concise halter and ridden program for Pure Crabbet and Crabbet Related horses. The first champion for the day in ring four was awarded to Burren-dah The Magician (Burren-Dah Illusions / Burren-Dah Cherie), a registered Anglo Arabian gelding who took home the halter award sponsored by Pevensey Arabians, Champion Crabbet Related Gelding, for his leasees, Future Farms. This bay gelding and his skilful rider, Kody Dertell, won the Youth (17yrs and under) Ridden Pure Crabbet or Crabbet Related Mare or Gelding later in the day. The Magician’s Crabbet heritage is a combination of the imported Fenwick bloodlines, through a variety of Sindh sons, and the famed Bostock bloodlines through the Santarabia horses. Reserve Champion Crabbet Related Gelding was Dyarah Park Bordeax (Liquid Gold / Caralebren Ashari) bred by Sarah Dyson, now owned and exhibited by the ever-enthusiastic, Cheryl Miller and her daughter Kristen Pickford. Bordeax and his owners had an outstanding day, following this Reserve Championship, they proceeded to win Champion Ridden Crabbet Exhibit generously sponsored by Moonaree Station Pty Ltd. A fantastic achievement for Cheryl, Kristen and Bordeax’s breeder. Reserve Champion Ridden Crabbet Exhibit was the purebred mare, Imoan Party Girl (Niarob Shou-Lin-El-Sadat / Avondale Golden Gem), owned by Helen Spencer. Party Girl combines an interesting collection of Pure Crabbet and Straight Egyptian bloodlines. Following on from the geldings, awards sponsored by Wentworth Estate were presented to the Champion Crabbet Related Female, won by Lisa Mullen and her lovely homebred, yearling Arabian Riding Pony, Aldersyde Tanzara (Aldersyde Resemblance / Aldersyde Tanzee). Tanzara’s sire is Aldersyde’s resident stallion, Aldersyde Resemblance (Arfaja Harlan / Fenwick Champagne) who regularly flies the flag for the Crabbet cause at Arabian shows. Reserve to the flashy youngster was Silveron Indian Halo (Nasq Ace of Swords / Dmar Finess) shown by Christine McCall. This four year old chestnut mare features an interesting Crabbet link to the ‘Indian’ horses through her maternal grandsire Indian Diplomat who is by Sabbat (Arabian Park Phaeton / Shadine) and out of the UK import, Indian Dream (IndianMagic / Sunset). The bay stallion, Avondale Maestro (Avondale Eclipse / Avondale Gai Enchantment) was first awarded the Grand Ridge Stud’s Champion Crabbet Related Entire, before being honoured with, Supreme Champion Led Crabbet Related Exhibit for his proud owner, Cheryl Johns. This award was sponsored in memory of Lesley Dowey. Maestro is the result of many years of dedicated Avondale breeding by Pam Morris, blending the ‘old Crabbet’ bloodlines of Fenwick and Ennerdale with American imports. Reserve Crabbet Related Entire was Amy Francis’ nineteen year old chestnut stallion, Reign Supreme (Scimitar Marsala / Oxford Accord). Reign Supreme was also winner of the Mill Park Arabians’ Award for Led Veteran 15yrs and Over, with second awarded to Overdale Farm Prince el Hilal (Crescent Moon / Rosabella) owned by Pam Carland. Adding to Cheryl Miller and Kristen Pickford’s successful day, the Pure Crabbet classes were dominated by their chestnut sabino, Fenwick Prince (Fenwick Orion / Meadow View Princess). Showing great promise, the young gelding humbled his gracious owners, winning Champion Pure Crabbet Gelding sponsored by Olivia Cleary , Kasdell Arabians’ award for Supreme Champion Led Pure Crabbet Exhibit AND Grand Champion Led Crabbet or Crabbet Related Exhibit, generously sponsored by Glencardie Constructions. A truly wonderful outing for them! Both the Pure Crabbet mare and entire championships were won by Pevensey horses – Leon Bennett’s successful breeding program. Champion mare was graciously sponsored by Kalody Park and won by the lively Pevensey Zahabieh (Royalund Silver Miracle / Pevensey Baybe) shown by Leon Bennett. Reserve went to Fenwick Phaedra who is by the well-known Fenwick Phantom (Greylight / Fascination) out of Fenwick Paschana (Fenwick Panache / Meadow View Princess), owned and exhibited by Leora Gardiner. As for the entires, Champion – sponsored by the Arafaja Stud, was Pevensey Petrov (Pevensey Safari / Petra Benay), again bred by Leon in partnership with Rob and Yvonne Day, now owned by Carmel Schroen. This dark brown stallion combines the bloodlines which have made Pevensey Arabians and the Moonlite Stud so successful, with his paternal grandparents: Sarafire and Dandaloo Baylanie, matched by the maternal grandparents: Magic Prophecy and Santarabia Porfira. Reserve Champion was the aforementioned, Overdale Farm Prince el Hilal. This stallion is also the result of an interesting collection of bloodlines, featuring a rather rare Pure Crabbet link to the Wellworth Stud’s, Crescent Moon (Risheem / Fickle); and a close link to the highly sought after, Barada II (Raisuli / Gadara).

Presidents Report continued…. Mention should also be made of a new class to the program, Led Endurance Crabbet, which requires entrants to have been actively involved in endurance competition. Horses are judged on their suitability for the sport, with Lois Sharam and Peter Fagan’s mare, Musical Gully Carousel (Kharine Rasim/ Ennerdale Nikita) taking home the blue ribbon, sponsored by the Arfaja Stud. The committee welcomed all in attendance to stop by the Crabbet stall where a number of books, artworks, artefacts and magazines were on display. It was fascinating to discuss all things Crabbet with the many people interested in the Group. New Arabian owners were introduced to Crabbet and the memory of more experienced breeders was refreshed. It was great to hear so many conversations starting with: “Oh, I remember Greylight…” and “I had a Sindh daughter…”. Central to the whole interest in Crabbet is of course the history of the Stud, the family and the incredible influence both have had on shaping the Arabian horse breed; as a result, the committee had a looped PowerPoint presentation introducing the wider public to the Crabbet Arabian Stud and the need to promote and preserve such a legacy. A huge thank you to the many people, businesses, studs and organisations that supported both WDARAB Inc. and VCAHG Inc. for the 2012 Arabian Spectacular. Their donations and support, combined with the dedication of the Group’s committee are what keeps these sorts of events afloat. Thank you very much. The VCAHG Inc. is exceptionally grateful of the time and energy spent by Mrs Jackie Dand of Mabrooka Arabians, who verified Crabbet percentages for all entries. Her support and expertise are greatly appreciated by the VCAHG and all those who competed. A combined thank you to those who paid for entries, prepared horses, travelled, camped, competed and spent the day smiling. The rising cost of horse ownership and competition is not going unnoticed within the industry, and for this reason the VCAHG is very grateful for your support. The decision to integrate what was once the annual ‘Vic Crabbet Show’ into another club’s event was not made lightly. The VCAHG aims to preserve the legacy of Crabbet and Crabbet Arabian horses through promotion, and while the number of competitors at shows continues to decline, combining with an established group and show committee to promote the Crabbet Arabian’s quality and versatility to the general public, simply makes sense. We are grateful for WDARAB’s support and hope to work with them and other clubs in the future for the greater Crabbet cause. We welcome all to the Group and hope to see Crabbet breeders, owners and enthusiasts of new and old at our meetings and future events. Sean Johnson VCAHG Inc. President

History

V CA H G I N C N E W S L E T T E R


The Winds of Change Back in the dim dark mists of time when the world moved at a slower pace, when it was almost impossible to buy a pure bred Arabian mare, when one would have to pay between six and seven thousand dollars for a good filly, began my first experience in showing an Arabian horse. The following is just the reminiscence of my personal experiences. Along with some friends, we decided to show our Arabian horses, but what were the protocols? None of us had experience in showing as such. I had grown up on a broad acre farm, always had a pony to ride and our horses were used for stock work, cattle and sheep, harness (driving the gig to town) plus the team horses used by my father. Later on the cycle continued, taking my own children to Pony Club, Horse Trials and relaxing rides in the bush. We approached a local Arabian breeder who was also, at that time, a member on the board of the A.H.S.A. Talking to this gentleman and other breeders, we learnt what was required to show our Arabians. No clipping of Arabian horses, the hair in their coat should be fine and all that was required was maybe a quick wash but good grooming of a healthy horse would show it to perfection. Should the horse have scurf in its mane and tail, a mixture of a pint of olive oil, two drops of phenol, dessert spoon of kerosene well shaken and rubbed into the base of mane and tail three days prior to a wash, and the said mane and tail would come up looking soft and beautiful. This preparation was used by many prior to the commercial products being readily available on the market. If the horse had a white tail ,a little wash in Nappy San, well rinsed removed the yellow stains, then a rinse in Reckitts Blue, used for rinsing white clothes, finished the mane and tail beautifully. Make up for horses? Never even considered! A little Baby Oil gently rubbed around the nostrils, eyes, under the tail and gently over the genitals was the closest to make up in our experience. In the area where I lived at the time, twenty five miles from town, one became very creative in an attempt to make our horses look more beautiful. However one old horseman once remarked that you can’t improve on nature, you can only try to camouflage faults .... “who’re you’re fooling mate, only yourself “. The thought of clipping out ears would make many a breeder from yester year turn in their grave, the hair is there to protect the ear from insects, small seeds and the like, if one really wanted to, just hold the sides of the ear together and trim off any hair which may protrude, thus giving a tidy effect. Trimming of eyelashes would never have been tolerated as it is just plain cruelty. How that practice ever crept in is beyond me, I realize it is now forbidden, but who would inflict that on their horse? Shaving off the tactile whiskers was not allowed, they are there for a reason. No clipped bridle path. Preferably the top of hooves should not rasped , hoof colouring was rarely used, black and clear varnish being the only colours, but then some souls painted all feet black irrespective of a white sock. Page 14

V CA H G I N C N E W S L E T T E R


We were told the judge will be looking for good conformation along with Arabian presence. Legs and feet would come under close scrutiny to ensure good tendons, strong hooves, good flat bone, nice gothic arch, well sprung ribs, no contracted heels or club feet ,no off set cannons, no parrot mouths, no bone spavin to name just a few, the list was almost endless. To go into the show ring most handlers wore riding apparel, the horse had to stand in a natural pose for the judge, front legs together and usually the near hind just back a little, the judge then could see four legs from both sides. No star gazing stance, who wants a star gazing horse? No outstretched neck, just a natural stance .The judge was permitted to touch the horse, sometimes looking at the teeth, especially in the age classes. In the work out in the led classes, one Judge I knew would put a horse down if it was not led out in a straight line, his reason being if he can’t see the horse track straight he’s not there to give it the benefit of the doubt. There were no led classes for geldings as the led classes were for the breeding stock, namely stallions and mares. Geldings very quickly got their led classes to encourage everyone to participate in as many classes as possible. Now to get to the Shows, mainly Agricultural but some A & B Class Arabian shows, if one had a horse but no float, the person with a float and only taking one horse would collect the floatless horse and owner. If one had a stallion and the hitchhiker was a mare in season, a little Vicks Vapor Rub around the stallion’s nostrils would ensure a safe and peaceful journey. We enjoyed ourselves immensely at these shows, sometimes camping overnight. This involved setting up our little tents and generally getting organized to cook our meals. One show ground where we camped [in a drought year], the ground was so hard we couldn’t hammer in all the pegs, so many of the ties were attached to the showground wall. If any hapless person came to our tents in the dark they would have been caught up in the ties like an insect in a spider’s web. We were successful in getting a ribbon or three but as we all knew our horses were sound in every way, we all had a good time irrespective of our placings – in life, as in showing, you win some, you lose some. However the winds of change were shifting from a gentle breeze to a strong wind in the Arabian world and showing, as we knew it was slowly becoming a thing of the past. Many of us hung up our show bridles and returned to pleasure riding. †††

WHEN WISHES COME TRUE A Show Story by Cheryl Miller I and my daughter Kristen Pickford would like to thank all the dedicated VCAHG group for their huge effort in holding the Crabbet Classes at 2012 WDARAB Show. We have had a very trying past few years, especially when three years ago Kristen (aged 28 and 28 weeks pregnant with her second child) was diagnosed with malignant Melanoma. She had a course of steroids to assist her unborn baby in preparation of surgery at 32 weeks. At 37 weeks her baby was induced and she had a beautiful son, Harley, brother to 2 year old Isabella. He was 6 weeks old when she was diagnosed again with aggressive malignant cancer. She then had another extensive operation followed by 28 months of Chemo which finished last August. Her goal throughout this ordeal was to ride her beautiful Chestnut Gelding Dyarah Park Bordeax (Liquid Gold x Caralabren Ashari) bred by Sarah Dyson, in the Krishlah Arabians Newcomer Class. All the Staff in the Chemo Unit at Peter Mac keenly followed the progress of preparing "Boston" for his show career. Kristen's goal was to place 4th. Never once did she say "If only we could Win, or place 2nd" - it was "I just want to ride & place 4th" . Kristen and Boston performed quite a nice workout on the circle amongst such a strong big class (10 I think) and a very tidy individual workout - with Kristen smiling & tears trailing down her cheeks as they went through their paces. Finally presentations were made. I was so very excited for her to be awarded her much wanted 4TH PLACE. To us, there was no difference in our excitement whether it was Fourth Place or First Place, as to us they were the same. Kristen and Boston followed up with a great day in the Crabbet Classes at the WDARAB Spectacular, with Reserve Champion Led Related Gelding and finally Champion Ridden Crabbet Exhibit. Page 24

I also had an amazing, exciting, unbelievable, overwhelming day with my treasured Fenwick Prince (Fenwick Orion x Meadowview Princess) -I fell in love with him when I first saw a photo of him in the Fenwick Foal Gallery 2009 as a new baby- Vicki had a stunning group of Arabian babies, some beautiful fillies in our favourite colour of red with lots of white, but I was obsessed with the colt. The cruel hand of fate was overruled by amazing and unforgettable kindness- the day I had arranged to visit Fenwick and collect baby Prince I flew over Fenwick on the way to Royal Perth Hospital Burns Unit where our son had been airlifted by R.F.D.S. after being badly burnt in an industrial Gas explosion in northern W.A.. (After a couple of surgeries and skin grafts Jarrod has made a painful but remarkable recovery with minimal scarring) I contacted Vicki and explained my new dilemma and kindly received a beautiful photo of Prince saying he was waiting for me. I am still amazed and in awe of his beauty and spend many many hours with him every day. He began his saddle education six weeks prior to the WDARAB Spectacular and is enjoying the variety of new work. I really was in two minds as to whether his presentation was good enough to take him but thought the outing would be quite beneficial and we really wanted to support the Group who worked so hard to put the Classes together. Winning Champion Pure Crabbet Gelding , then Supreme Led Pure Crabbet Exhibit followed by Grand Champion Crabbet Exhibit exceeded any thoughts I had prior to the Show - again, I can only say I was overwhelmed, both by his success but also by the amazing group of Crabbet enthusiasts who so kindly shared in our excitement with their encouragement and joining Kristen and I who couldn’t believe others loved our boys as much as we do. A huge thankyou to the wonderful Sponsors for their support of the Show, the Garlands and Rugs are amazing. I intend to photograph Prince in his Rugs and Garlands but time has escaped me. I have loved Arabians all my life and had my first Arabian bred pony 42 years ago (ugh) my family pedigree is strongly with thoroughbreds but I managed to always have Arabian blood somewhere- I was a licensed Jockey for 6 years- but always looking forward to showing Arabians so Kristen was born into loving them also. Fortunately our love continues onto the next generation with Kristen's daughter, Isabella, already having a keen Arabian eye. Its amazing how every Arabian that takes my breath away is Crabbet or very high %- with the first Studs I admired being Fenwick and Ennerdale - so I am privileged to have Prince who carries both Studs blood. Kristen and I wish to thank everyone once again for our great dayboth with sharing horses performances- but also everyone’s kindness. We were encouraged to join the Crabbet Group a few years ago by now former members Sarah Dyson and Lisa Mullen, where we also met Vicki Johnson. They have been so helpful and now we have met many of the present members in the Group as well. Cheryl Miller Page 25

Moonaree Station Pure Crabbet and Crabbet Related Arabians Moonaree Station is located in the North West pastoral district of South Australia approximately 650km from Adelaide. A semi-arid region featuring rocky slopes with acacia and mulga, salt bush and blue bush flats and Myall woodlands. The property runs Merino sheep for wool production and is also home to a small group of Arabians and Connemara ponies.

My first Arabian, Arasarta Glamour Bey (Son of Black Beauty x Meagelle) aka Remmie, now 19 years old, introduced me to the wonderful temperament and capability of the Arabian and inspired my love of the breed. Remmie completed 1000 endurance kilometres as well as thousands of kilometres in training, stock work and travel. He is still fit, sound and enthusiastic!

Predominantly Egyptian and Crabbet lines with a splash of Polish, hours spent looking into his pedigree led me to the Crabbet Arabian. My hope was to eventually purchase a pure Crabbet and then to breed and produce a good all round saddle horse with athletic ability, soundness and stamina, together with the refinement and intelligence of the breed.

I purchased Jahahn Izadorah (Jahahn Ezram Bey x Jangary Domara) now 18 years old and 70.8% Crabbet and firstly bred two partbreds by our Connemara pony stallion. Helwah Hilal was started under saddle in February and has been trail riding, completed two 20km rides and will commence pony dressage in 2013. Full brother Rahim Kahn will be started under saddle in 2013 also.

While searching for a pure Crabbet filly I read a post regarding the sale of an older mare with close lines to Crystal Fire. I subsequently purchased Joden Saphire (Torryburn Hariya El Jabal x Safirra) and was very fortunate, with the experience and assistance of Olivia Rose of Calga Arabians, to welcome a chestnut filly by Destiney’s Heritage (Chip Chase Dominion x Bint Destiney). Saphidha (72.56% Crabbet), is now two years old and while perhaps not classically ‘typey’ has the movement and strength I had hoped for and the sweetest nature.

I subsequently had the opportunity to purchase the pure Crabbet filly Lady Robin of Seven Oaks (Inshallah Silver Guardian x Inshallah Silver Sonnet). Now five years she is maturing into all I had hoped for. After doing well in the show ring she has just been started under saddle and is currently at stud with hopes of a first pure Crabbet foal by Erin Park Nelson next season.

Having been a long time admirer of Crenel and the Inshallah bred horses, we have recently welcomed Inshallah Coronation (Crenel x Countess Carissimo). This beautiful, strong moving mare is a maiden 19 years old, but I hope to see her produce a high percentage Crabbet foal in the future.

These girls will form the nucleus of what will be a small stud breeding pure Crabbet and Crabbet related Arabians. The girls have recently been joined by Destiney’s Heritage (aka Chippy, 93.7% Crabbet) and Magnet’s Kharillion (Jamaica Magnet x Kharmilla), predominantly Polish/Crabbet. Eight year old Chippy is currently starting out under saddle and two year old Speedie has had his first two show outings. Both are lovely, big moving horses.

I am very grateful for the wonderful support I have received from the SA Arabian and endurance communities. With our remote location and difficult travel conditions, this has been so important in enabling my ongoing interest in the breed. Remmie has several regular homes away from home that allowed him to spell after travel and before endurance competition. With little show experience, Karen Sheridan of Sheridan Park Arabians has trained me and my horses and provides ongoing care and agistment as the dry times continue at Moonaree. I have received invaluable encouragement and support from other breeders, trainers and riders and I am looking forward to the future with these wonderful Arabians.

With thanks to Karen Sheridan for all photographs.

JenaLea Arabian Stud Home to pure crabbet and high % crabbet Arabians Including our resident Stallion the lovely bay, Glendarra Park Strauss (Arfaja Rawdon x Sapphire Rose) who has an exceptional temperament as well as a big soft eye and correct confirmation. We hope he will pass these attributes onto his first foals later this year. We are looking forward to seeing what he will produce as he has many top horses in his pedigree. A very important aspect that we strive to breed into our foals as well as type is temperament as we feel that this is of utmost importance in any horse but more so in a saddle horse who may have to tolerate many different owners in their lifetime. Recent news - we are thrilled to introduce a new addition to our mare band the pure crabbet mare Inshallah Bay Lady (Inshallah Silver Salute x Inshallah Signature exp UK) with kind thanks to Leigh Jamieson from Seven Oaks Arabians for allowing us to purchase her.

Laminitis is lethal. By Dr. Judith Mulholland, .. Farriervet

Laminitis is inflammation of the laminae of the hoof. Many species including cattle are affected. The horse is uniquely vulnerable. It is a risk factor and side effect of many diseases resulting in partial to total disruption of the laminitic bond holding the hoof wall to the internal Pedal bone and leg. Mild cases result in lameness and the horse recovers with mild changes to the hoof capsule. Moderate cases cause very severe pain and changes to the hoof capsule pattern of growth that require longterm treatment. Severe cases are so painful due to the loss of laminitic bond and the sinking of the horse into the hoof with severe chronic changes that lead to a very long and difficult recovery. In some cases within the first 6 days – 6 weeks the horse is euthanased. Treatment must be tailored to the individual and setbacks often occur due to small changes in management. My goal in this brief article is to outline An example of the hoof regrowing after acute laminitis 5 months earlier. some of the risk factors facing the Arab horse and help you to prevent it. Genetics - the thrifty gene. When you look at horses generally the high risk body type has a thick or crested neck, bulging eyes (fat storage), fat around the neck, shoulders, upper ribs and tail base. This includes Warmbloods and Thoroughbreds. Therefore, body type is a greater risk factor than breed. The show type is at risk. The thrifty gene is why some humans get fat easily and are more likely to develop diabetes. We are advised to lose weight, exercise and make healthier low GI food choices. Obese horses also have a greater sensitivity to the effects of the hormones Cortisol and Insulin that control glucose and energy metabolism in the body. Horses and ponies that get fat just looking at food, that are always hungry and have the thrifty genotype are at greater risk of laminitis. Gender – mares are at greater risk than geldings and stallions. However, all the risk factors are cumulative no gender is immune. Age – no age is immune even foals get laminitis. However, the risk rises significantly after horses and ponies are fully mature. Mares over 7 are at increasing risk if obese and those over 15 at higher risk. Body Condition Score – The fatter they are the greater the risk. Working horses in a moderate condition on moderate energy food have a lower risk of laminitis than a horse in show condition with light work on a high energy diet. Skinny animals get laminitis too but for different reasons. Inappropriate foods – high carbohydrate foods such as grain, pellets, molasses, even high energy hay has too much soluble sugar (fructan) and starch. This results in the fermentation of carbohydrates in the GI tract that can directly lead to laminitis and to complex hormonal interactions that indirectly lead to laminitis. Lush spring grass and the hay that is made from it are very high risk. Horses need to eat a lot of low energy roughage and mineral supplements if needed.

Page 32

V CA H G I N C N E W S L E T T E R


If a horse cleans up all the hay and leaves nothing the sugar content is usually high. If some hay is still there in the morning and the horse is less keen on the feed the sugar content is low. Horses need low energy food that they can nibble at all the time. Seasonal changes – laminitis follows rain. Every time the grass is growing and you are thinking about mowing the lawn the risk is high. Be vigilant and remove high risk horses before the flush of spring and autumn feed.

After reshoeing, heel support and elevation from the ground give comfort.

Selection for laminitis – the problem is getting rapidly worse. Each year I treat obese young mares and the next year I treat them again. During this time the mare has often produced 1 or 2 foals and become even fatter. The owner will say I can’t show or ride her so I may as well breed from her. She was our best show mare and is the type we want.

Laminitis risk factors are hereditary. Prevention – Do not allow horses to be in obese condition for long periods. Rip off the rugs and let them use their own energy to keep warm all year round. Feed roughage as it provides warmth during digestion and this helps create a more natural yearly cycle for the body. Treatment - treat early at the first signs. Remove the cause stop access to the feed that has led to the problem and provide low energy alternatives. NEVER STARVE THE HORSE. Cold hosing or soaking the front legs in an ice bath (never put ice directly on the skin) 20 minutes in and 5 minutes out repeatedly during the onset phase. Make sure the horse does not have sole pressure. Seek expert veterinary and farriery advice. www.farriervet.com – laminitis.
