Forages and grazing in horse nutrition

Forages should be the basis of all diets in horse feeding. Therefore it is of major importance to determine which parameters will influence their quality. Changes on chemical composition along the vegetative cycle, nutrient losses during harvesting, preservation and storage are factors that could have an effect on nutritive value, as well on digestibility and palatability. A specific grazing and ingesting behaviour, linked to plant preferences and the selection of feeding sites will have an impact on biodiversity. This will determine the options on plant species and varieties and further management of pastures for horses. This book highlights the role of forages and grazing in horse nutrition and also gathers information about related topics, such as the contribution of local breeds for the sustainability and development of rural areas, their impact on landscape and relationships with environmental preservation. This book is the 6th volume in a scientific series conceived through the European Workshop on Equine Nutrition (EWEN) which falls under the umbrella of the Horse Commission of the European Federation of Animal Science (EAAP). All these materials provide an interesting basis for further discussion, not only in specialized forums, but also for those involved in horse production.

Recognizing and quickly reacting to emergencies involving a horse are critical to its well being and survival. Equine Health and Emergency Management provides essential knowledge in all aspects of the emergent care of horses. The book begins by emphasizing the importance of horsemanship in the prevention of injury and disease. Facility safety and stable management are key factors in prevention, as is a thorough understanding and knowledge of the healthy horse, broodmare, and foal. Once this essential knowledge base is achieved the book progresses to discussion of preparing for and managing emergencies. Assessment and treatment skills are addressed. Then diseases and trauma of each body system are covered outlining the clinical signs, vital signs, history or possible causes, actions to take, and prevention strategies for each. The book concludes by addressing the assessment, planning, and preparation needs when faced with a manmade or natural disaster. No horse owner or veterinary professional specializing in the care of horses should be without Equine Health and Emergency Management.

There are horsemen, and there are ridersand occasionally someone special comes along who excels at both. Wylde Ride: A Horsemans Story is the biography of Peter Wylde, a boy who won the Maclay Finals at age sixteen and later became an international equestrian superstar. In the late 1970s, a twelve-year-old boy and his parents arrived at horse trainer Joe Dotolis stable to inquire about his services. Relying on his memory and photographs, Dotoli chronicles his thirty-year relationship with Wylde as his trainer and friend, sharing the inspirational journey of a horseman who viewed his own accomplishments as second to those of his horse. From the first day Wylde rode his horse around the trainers field, Dotoli details how he helped build the confidence of his student who already seemed bound for prominence in an extremely competitive sport. From Dotolis stables to the Olympic games in Athens, the story of Wyldes evolution into an equestrian superstar will inspire young riders to choose the honorable track and, above all else, become horsemen first. Peter followed his dreams and pursued the quest for knowledge through all its hills and valleys to become one of the best in our sport. Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum
