    "Feed for Thought": The Cool Down: Secrets Behind Keeping a Horse Healthy & Sound
    By Suzie Middlebrook, BSc | Cavalor Nutrition Specialist It used to be that when you noticed heat or swelling on your horse's leg, you immediately reached for the hose and would sit there for some arbitrary amount of time hosing the affected leg. This process was always referred to as “cold hosing” regardless of the actual temperature of the water. While this method is easy and convenient, cold hosing is not necessarily effective in reducing pain and heat at the injury site.

    "Feed for Thought": Feeding is Fueling
    When looking at the athletes of the human world, you can often tell what type of sport an athlete competes in by looking at their diet. A distance runner will generally eat foods high in carbohydrates & fats, such as sweet potatoes, nuts, & bagels with cream cheese. In contrast, a weight lifter would eat a diet high in protein like chicken, tuna, & soy products, with carbohydrates being the primary fuel source, particularly in the form of pre-workouts and energy boosters. But why is that and how does that compare to your horse?

    "Feed for Thought": Equine Digestive Tract - From Mouth to...
    By Suzie Middlebrook BSc. | Cavalor Nutrition Specialist. When it comes to horses, there is quite a lot that happens between meal time and mucking time. The digestive tract of the horse is very efficient at obtaining vast amounts of energy from forage that would be almost unusable to many other animals such as humans or pigs.

By learning more about how the horse’s digestive tract operates, horse owners are better able to make informed decisions about how to best feed their equine partners.

    "Feed for Thought": Managing a Hot Horse from a Nutritional Perspective
    By Suzie Middlebrook, BSc Horses are reactive, flighty, and anxious creatures and for good reason. In the wild, a horse’s best defense is his ability to respond quickly and effectively to his surroundings. Unfortunately, these same characteristics are often contradictory to what is desired in an ideal riding horse. While training, exposure, and breeding can help produce a calmer and more reliable mount, sometimes a combination of management and nutritional strategies must be employed to get the best results when working with a hot horse. This is particularly true with young horses, mares, and stallions. It is also important to note that there are different types of “hot” behavior. One would employ a different combination of strategies for an anxious youngster on his first trip off the property than one would for an overly enthusiastic hunter. Often times, it takes a good deal of testing different tactics to find the best combination for an individual horse.
