The Equine Research Centre Thirsty Bedding
Equine Research Centre, Guelph, Ontario
Absorbency is an important property to consider when deciding which bedding to use for your stalls. Your bedding should also be dust and mould free, supportive and easy to use and dispose of.
The more absorbent a bedding is, the lower the levels of ammonia should be in the barn. In addition, the added moisture may decrease dust levels. Absorbent beddings are easier to muck out as the dirty bedding will tend to clump and may allow less bedding to be used over all. The following charts illustrate the varying abilities of common beddings to absorb water. Your choice of bedding will depend on a combination of personal preference, cost effectiveness, local availability and type of horse housed.

Horse Pasture Management

By Dave Robison, Forage & Turf Agronomist, Ampac Seed Company
Horses . . . mighty, powerful, majestic beasts of beauty. Although we picture a robust stallion or a brood mare in a lush green pasture, such a backdrop isn’t reality for many, if not most horse owners. Most horse pastures are far less than lush. However, establishing and maintaining productive pastures isn’t a difficult process. By following a few simple steps, most pastures can become lush, green, and quite productive.

Clicker Training Learning to Learn
Equine Research Foundation
They say you can't teach an old horse new tricks? But why not?
If horses are anything like other animals, mice, for instance, you can not only teach them new things, but you may also be able to increase their thinking ability.
Horses are cognitive animals with great learning capabilities yet many are subjected to unnatural lives in dark stalls with nothing of interest happening daily except the delivery of hay. Some get an hour of turnout a day and perhaps a half-hour of mind-numbing lunging. Others are ridden over the same course with little or no variation. And yet people wonder why these horses seem dull compared to others that are played with regularly and have a variety of stimuli and interesting challenges in their surroundings.
Horses who live in enriched environments are generally well-adjusted, more alert, and can handle new situations better. Whether this is due to an increase in brain cells is unknown but common sense tell us that any organism living in a stimulating habitat will be enriched by its experiences.

The Equine Research Centre Body Conditioning Scoring:
A useful skill for horse owners

Equine Research Centre, Guelph, Ontario
Body condition scoring is a hands-on, subjective method for evaluating a horse's condition or fat cover.
During colder months, this method will keep you aware of minor weight changes before your horse reaches a serious (2-3) condition. Perfect for use in climates where winter hair and blankets may hide the "real" horse. Temperature extremes over extended time periods, may change feed requirements to maintain a horse's condition. Lost condition may result in increased training time and feed costs.

A Horse, of Course
with Don Blazer
First man just ate the horse. Later he discovered he could keep lame mares and milk them. That was the beginning of the meat and milk industry. Man's progress wasn't too swift until he got on the horse's back, then the whole human race began to boogie.
Exactly when man domesticated the riding horse is questionable. Which of the many human societies first utilized the horse as a mount is debatable. But the fact that progress went from a walk to a gallop once man and horse became partners is undeniable.

The Kidney Meridian
In Shiatsu there are twelve meridians each of which can have a powerful effect on balancing your horse’s health. The meridians are “paired” with each other and the “sister meridian” to the Bladder Meridian is the Kidney Meridian. They are paired because one is the Yin and the other the Yang Meridian and by working both you can improve the results of each one separately. This is because if one sister Meridian has an excess of energy the other will show an energy deficiency. Stimulating both can alleviate the imbalance.

Brindled means having a coat streaked or spotted with a darker color. In horses, it's rare, but it's there.
Brindle means a brindled coat or a brindled animal. There are no registered brindles in the horse world. That doesn't mean they aren't there, but rare; it means they aren't registered.

The Fell Pony The Fell Pony
The Fell Pony has been recognisable as a breed since Roman times when they were employed as draught animals in the north of England within local industry and the building of the Roman walls. In addition, they were the main form of transport for the raiding Picts and later on, the Border Reivers - both of whom needed sure-footed ponies with great stamina to assist in the success of their raiding campaigns in the Border country.
The biggest demand is for the family riding pony, but registered Fells at the present time are being used for pleasure and competitive riding, showing, driving, hunting, trekking, shepherding and are very suitable for riding and driving for the disabled. In temperament they are kindly and docile, though full of life and energy. In fact it has been said that "you cannot put a Fell Pony to the wrong job".

Clipping Clicker Training - Getting Familiar with the Clippers.
This is an area of training where negative reinforcement plays a role. You can pair it with positive reinforcement for faster results. The question of what to do with your horse is one only you can answer. I normally work with the horse on a lead rope. It is not necessary. It is helpful if the horse does not have an acre of space.
I show the horse the clippers. I let the horse sniff the clippers. I do not train the horse to target the clippers. Clippers can be dangerous for the horse to lip or bite. Most horses will sniff the clippers. I then pat the horse with the clippers in my hand. This will cause the cord to flop about since the clippers are not plugged in. If your horse is already dancing this is what you need to work on. Click and reward for any signs of calmness. As soon as you click move the clippers and cord away from your horse (negative reinforcement).
