New Prebiotic From Baileys Horse Feeds
Food for the "good" bacteria
As autumn turns to winter many horses will, by necessity, be experiencing changes in their diet and routines. Hay, or other forage alternatives, will increasingly replace grass, and compound feed may be introduced or increased to maintain condition. Whilst we endeavour to make these changes gradually, the microbial population of a horse's gut may still be disrupted resulting in digestive upsets and associated under performance.
New Baileys Digest Plus is a prebiotic intended to help restore the natural bacterial content of the gut and with it, overall good health in the horse.
The equine gut plays host to a multitude of species of bacteria, some of great benefit to the horse and some potentially pathogenic. Baileys Digest Plus contains short chain fructo-oligosaccharides (scFOS) which are made up of molecules of fructose and glucose. The bonds joining them can only be broken down by the beneficial bacteria and not by the horse itself, so Digest Plus acts as a food source for the good bacteria allowing them to flourish at the expense of any "undesirable" species.
Loose droppings or diarrhoea are a clear sign that the balance between "good" and "bad" bacterial species has been disrupted. Stress, from competing, travelling or changes in routine, increases the passage of food through the gut and with it the bacteria. The content of the diet, or changes made to it, could allow pathogenic species to flourish at the expense of the beneficial ones. Baileys Digest Plus can help to reverse these imbalances by "feeding" the good bacteria encouraging them to proliferate and keep the pathogenic ones at bay.

The Florida Endurance Riding Association Far Out Forest Ride
The Far Out Forest hosted by Ken Anderson was as usual a great ride.  The trails were FUN and extremely well marked.  The Spaghetti dinner was excellent.  A nice warm meal before the cool night mist set in. 
The ride meeting was direct and to the point which gave the riders time to catch up with each other.   The whole Far Out Forest crew did a fantastic job.  Nancy our timer, what would we do without her keeping the riders moving in and out.  The Vets were ill but still were committed to doing their job, and they did an excellent job.  Volunteers from check-in to check-out, what a great bunch of people.  Keeping the ride moving smoothly.   If you missed this ride they will be hosting another one in February of 2002.

British Charity Saving Lives Of Afghan Animals
The Brooke Hospital for Animals is providing vital veterinary treatment for the thousands of animals brought into Pakistan by their Afghan refugee owners. The mobile team is based at the Pajaggi equine trading camp on the outskirts of Peshawar. Operational at the camp since March 2001, the team has been in even greater demand with the recent influx of refugees and their animals.
Regularly treating more than 150 horses every day, the vets see a wide range of serious conditions resulting from lack of food during the long, arduous journey over the pass from Afghanistan. Many animals arrive at the camp malnourished, lame, dehydrated and exhausted. Nearly all have raw, infected wounds on their backs where the pack, containing all the family's possessions, has rubbed the skin away.
Whilst predominately an equine welfare charity, the Brooke Hospital mobile team at Pajaggi is giving veterinary treatment to any animal in need. Some owners have brought with them their herds of goats, whilst others have camels. Any animal in need is assured of care and attention.

24th Oct. 2001 Happy Horse Hay Steamer
Attention! Do You Soak Hay, Does Your Horse Suffer From COPD Or Dust And Hay Allergies?
Then take a look at the Happy Horse Hay Steamer
This easy to use system is designed to do the same AND MORE as soaking hay without all the inconvenience of dustbins full of water and heavy wet hay nets to hang up. It is the ideal solution for horses with dust allergies and respiratory problems.
There is an ever increasing number of horses that require soaked hay all year round. This arduous job usually entails soaking nets of hay in gallons of unreusable water (Soaked hay water is classed as effluent and should not be discharged down drains) and then struggling to hang them up. In winter this is an even less appealing task when you end up with cold hands and dripping wet clothing. Added to this is the possibility of exposing our horses to Bacteria, Fungal Spores and Dust Mites not killed by soaking plus the expense of supplementing the vital minerals leached out of the hay during the soaking process.
As with most ideas this one came about through having to do this job ourselves.

Probiotics in Horses: Research is the Key to Unlocking Their Potential

Probiotic therapy is emerging as a popular and potentially valuable tool in the practice of human and veterinary medicine. Probiotic therapy may be useful in the treatment or prevention of a number of disorders, particularly diarrheic disease. Still, clinical application is difficult due to a lack of research in horses and questionable quality control of commercial products. Dr. Scott Weese of the Department of Clinical Studies at the University of Guelph is burning to build on his current research of probiotics in horses. His work is contributing to clearly determining the appropriate organisms, appropriate doses and conditions that are potentially treatable with probiotics.
The appealing properties of probiotics include the ability to reduce antibiotic use, the apparently very high index of safety, and the public's perception about "natural" or "alternative" therapies. The definition of a probiotic was refined in 1998 to: "living microorganisms, which upon digestion in certain number, exert health benefit beyond inherent basic nutrition". Regardless of the definition, certain criteria have been developed to evaluate the potential of microorganisms to function as probiotics.
