Hoof anatomy is an important, often-overlooked part of pre-purchase evaluations.

by Erin Prutow, Esquire

One of the most important pieces of advice I can give a client who is horse shopping is to be as proactive as possible. Paper your contracts, hash-out the nuts and bolts prior to transferring the horse.

Weight loss & shelly hooves are two signs a horse is short on nutrients.

by Tab Pigg

Nutrition impacts a horse’s entire body, from its mane all the way down to its hooves. When a horse owner gives feed to their horse, they are providing the horse with amino acids that are essential to keeping hooves strong and healthy. The feet collect minerals and nutrients from the blood supply. If the quality or quantity of the feed is not at the recommended level, this can lower the blood supply to the feet and inhibit a horse’s ability to grow and develop its soles and hoof walls properly. To sustain optimal hoof health, it’s important to provide the proper diet for a horse and take action if hooves are affected by a poor diet.

Breathe easier by making the most of the season’s barn cleaning inspirations.

The urge to purge, clean and de-clutter is in the air as the March 20 arrival of spring looms. Barns big and small benefit from an at-least annual application of serious broom, vacuum, elbow grease and re-organization. Dust, cobwebs and accumulations of generally yucky stuff in nooks and crannies are the enemies of a healthy horsekeeping environment. Clutter impedes efficient stable workflow and safe passage through the barn, so that should be tackled, too.

Digestive issues are curable culprit in many everyday behavioral issues.

Would you believe that something as simple as digestion plays a leading role in yours, and your horse’s, health?

Health originates in the digestive track --- where nutrients from foodstuffs are broken down, absorbed into the system and supplied to the entire body. When digestion is compromised, nutrients will not be fully absorbed and a wide range of deficiencies can and will occur. Signs may include low energy, poor attitude, diarrhea, weight loss, coat changes, hoof issues and even colic.
