Orphan Foal Care

June 3, 2014

Horse owners have many options when faced with an orphaned foal.

No one wishes for it, but many have to deal with it unexpectedly: the orphaned foal. It’s easy to be scared and overwhelmed when faced with this challenge. So the best course of action is to become educated.

AQHA offers the Orphan Foal Care free report to give you the knowledge to handle an orphaned foal situation. Download your copy today, and add it to your library of helpful horse tips.

Orphan Foal Care details a real-life example of an orphan foal and the steps his owners took to raise him to grow big and strong. It was an intense time commitment, but well worth the effort.

In this easy-to-understand, five-page report, you’ll learn:

  • How to ensure your orphan foal receives colostrum
  • Milk replacer options
  • Bucket feeding advice
  • Ways to incorporate a nurse mare

Dr. Leslie Dykstra at Oklahoma City Equine offers great advice in this report.

“If the foal is just within a few days of life, it’s best to get a nurse mare,” Dr. Dykstra says. “Not only is the foal going to get important nutrients and antibodies from the mare’s milk, but the mare has a lot to teach the foal when it comes to interaction with other horses and giving them the sense of how to be a horse.

“When you put them on a bucket or try to feed them with a bottle, some of that can be lost if they haven’t had time to just learn those important characteristics of interacting with other horses,” she adds. “If they’re a few weeks old or older, it may be easier and more economical for the owners to go ahead and put them on a bucket. We usually have good success with that.”

Do you know how much colostrum a foal needs? Dr. Kykstra explains the ideal amount and the different ways to administer it in addition to nursing directly from the mare.

How to Tie a Rope Halter

May 21, 2014

Learn the correct way to tie a rope halter.

The rope halter is a valuable tool, but it needs to be used correctly. A poorly tied rope halter can put your horse in danger, so it’s worth your time to learn how to properly use it and keep your horse safe.

In AQHA’s FREE How to Tie a Rope Halter report, expert tack maker Dennis Moreland explains in simple terms how to tie a rope halter.

“I prefer to use rope halters on my horses. I have to admit, I’ve been too embarrassed to tell anyone I didn’t know how to properly tie them and I would not ask for help. This article, with numbered steps and matching photos, made it so simple to understand and follow. Now I can tie them properly every time. Proper tying is safer for me and my horse and gives me more overall self-confidence working with my horses.”

Dressage-Based Exercise

May 2, 2014

Enjoy this FREE excerpt from a popular horse-training book.

Learn a dressage-based exercise created by Ellen Eckstein and Tom Dorrance that teaches your horse the beginning of self carriage.

In this FREE 15-page booklet, you’ll learn the Reach Forward Exercise.

This exercise progresses from the horse stepping out, in a type of turn on the forehand, with large confident steps from behind, to stepping under and forward with large confident steps from behind. It also explains to the horse that when the rider reaches for the rein, the rider wants activity. That the rider wants the horse to come from behind, and step up to the rider’s light hand.

EVA: A Manageable Problem

April 21, 2014

Equine viral arteritis in horses is manageable.

Learn why Dr. Joe Manning of Sports Medicine Services in Weatherford, Texas, says, “EVA has significant implications from the standpoint of the breeding business,” in this FREE report from The American Quarter Horse Racing Journal library.

Although EVA is rarely lethal to horses, it can play havoc with your breeding program, as its greatest danger lies in mares aborting their pregnancies. Find out how you can protect your mares and breeding program through this report.

Here’s what you’ll learn in this great FREE report:

  • What EVA is
  • Symptoms of EVA
  • Treatment and Prevention of EVA
  • Transportation and quarantine
  • Top things to remember about EVA

EVA is passed by direct horse-to-horse contact but can be transferred through indirect means such as shared equipment and handlers. Mares, geldings and sexually immature stallions will be able to shed the virus shortly after they acquire it. Sexually mature stallions can become carriers of the virus, as EVA is a testosterone-dependent virus.

Along with Dr. Manning’s professional advice, he is joined by Peter Timoney, a professor and researcher at the Gluck Equine Research Center in Lexington, Kentucky.

“EVA is the only known testosterone- or androgen-dependent carrier state that I’m aware of among mammalian viruses. That’s why it only occurs in the intact, sexually mature male,” says Timoney.

EVA is a resilient virus and can survive and still be transferred through chilled and frozen semen, making it a huge threat when shipping semen for artificial insemination.

How do you find out if your horse is EVA positive? EVA: A Manageable Problem, walks you through the different tests and scenarios of positive and elevated readings. You’ll learn how to determine whether a horse is contagious.

Take the next step and learn how to protect your horse from contracting EVA, therefore preventing any losses in your breeding program from this manageable virus. The FREE EVA: A Manageable Problem report discusses the vaccine by Pfizer Animal Health and proper administration practices.

International horse traffic is also discussed and options are weighted as some countries have stricter regulations regarding elevated levels of the antibodies. Be able to make an educated decision on what is best for your horses and your breeding program.

Become knowledgeable on all proper isolation and quarantine methods and when to apply them within your breeding program to prevent an EVA outbreak.

Don’t let EVA interfere with your breeding program. EVA: A Manageable Problem will bring you up to speed with what this virus is all about, how to keep it away from your horses and what to do if you do come into contact with EVA.

Horse Trailer Loading Tips

March 3, 2014

Training for the trailer requires time and patience.

It’s easy to lose your temper when teaching a horse to load in a trailer. Unfortunately, getting impatient is the worst thing you can do.

The late Bill Van Norman insists that you need to take your time and keep your temper when teaching your horse to trailer load.

Bill offers his valuable advice in AQHA’s FREE report, Horse Trailer Loading Tips.

To begin training your horse to trailer load, Bill suggests these tips:

  • Send your horse in a circle around you directly behind the open trailer.
  • Use a lead rope, not a longe line, so you can keep your horse fairly close to you.
  • If your horse wants to stop and smell the trailer or look inside, encourage this behavior and recognize it as a sign that he’s trying.
  • When his attention fades off the trailer, ask your horse to move out again and continue circling you.
  • Circle in both directions behind the trailer to help him become comfortable with being worked from either side.

“I have a 3-year-old Quarter Horse mare named Channel, and she has always been very difficult to load and I have tried everything. But I tried what you suggested in this article and, like magic, she got right in! It is so great to not have to worry anymore about how I would get her to the vet if she got sick or injured. Last winter, during a snowstorm, she would not get in the trailer so I could take her into town for a vet check of her eye injury. It’s good to know that if something like that happens again I should be able to get that rascal in the trailer! Thank you!”
