Important to note depression is a big thing with horses. When they are racing they get primary care and lots of TLC the same as competition horses but if they get hurt many of them are pushed aside and fulltime and proper care is withdrawn. Not all suffer this but many do the horses are not stupid and they wonder what have they done where is my mate (strapper) etc what is ahead for me they feel the abandonment simular to a human after a death in the family. Please take more care with retired horses and remember what they have done for you.
Vital signs (TPR) – What’s normal & What’s not
Are you aware of a horses normal vital signs or TPR (Temperature, Pulse, Respiratory)? Have you ever wondered what a normal temperature is for a horse, what their heart rate should be, or how many breaths they should be taking per minute?
It’s not a bad idea to have a knowledge of what these parameters are so you can know that your horse is feeling happy and healthy. By regularly checking your own horse, you will get an idea of what their normal TPR is and you will be able to notice quickly if they aren’t feeling well or not recovering from strenuous exercise as they should be. Below is a guide to help you, however, please remember that every horse is different, and rates may vary from one to the other.
- Temperature – normal range is between 37.4- 38.4 degrees C, a high temperature can be a sign of illness or overheating, a decrease can indicate shock or sickness. Temperature is checked via the rectum, always using a clean thermometer. As a note a foal’s temperature will be slightly higher than an adult horse so keep this in mind if checking a foal, and probably best to seek the advice of a vet.
- Heart Rate (pulse) – is normally between 36-42 beats per minute but this can vary slightly for each horse. Things such as current health and fitness levels can affect the heart rate. To manually check your horses heart rate place 3 fingers (not your thumb) where veins are closest to the skin surface such as under the jaw, or under the tail. You can also check it with a stethoscope just behind the elbow. When checking count the heart beats for 15 secs then multiply it by 4 to get a per minute rate. Heart rate should return to normal within 30 mins after exercise. Note: Rates for foals 70-120 beats/min, yearling 45-60 beats/min
- Respiratory Rate – Can vary between 12-20 breaths per minute. You can check this by watching the horses rib cage or nostril and counting the breaths. Wait 30 mins after exercise to check respiratory so you can be sure the horses’ rate has returned to normal. Respiratory rates can be affected by fitness, temperature, pain, excitement or illness.
There are another few ways to help check if you feel your horse is feeling unwell such as
- Mucous membranes – should be a healthy pink colour, moist, with a capillary refill time of less than 2 secs
- Gut sounds – should have good strong gut sounds on both sides
- Hydration – using the skin pinch test should retract in around 1 sec
Hopefully these helpful hints will let you decide what is normal or abnormal for your horse. Remember this is just a guide, if you do have any concerns regarding any of your horses vital signs please call and make an appointment with your veterinarian to have your horse fully checked over.
5 Things Your Horse Will Always Remember!
Horses have an exceptional level of awareness meaning that they can understand situations much more deeply than other animals. They are so attentive that they can pick on other people's emotions through body language, voice, or just the general vibe you give off. This type of awareness can lead to much more intense experiences for horses. Here are some experiences your horse will remember forever!
Horses have quasi photographic memory, meaning that they can remember places very clearly. It can be positive or negative, depending on the experience they had in a particular place. Imagine your horse witnessed a very traumatic event. Most likely he will never forget the place or event and move away from that area. If your horse seems hesitating to go somewhere, listen to him, comfort him and trust him, he knows what he's doing!
As horses have an almost photographic memory, it’s no surprise that they remember people by their faces. Show them the picture of someone they know and they will probably react. Horses can even recognize people after years of being apart! But their memory goes far beyond our general appearance. Horses can read our facial expressions and remember them for later, too.
As part of the study, horses were shown pictures of people with happy or sad expressions. After meeting these people in person (with neutral expressions), the horses reacted based on the original expression they had memorized in the photos. If you meet a horse for the first time, then you have to make a very good impression on him!
Besides places and people, horses have an innate ability to recognize human emotions. Horses have a tendency to perceive body language, even the most subtle, which helps them determine a person's feelings. If we are feeling stressed, sad or angry, our physical appearance tends to reflect this. Same goes when we feel happy or excited! Horses don't just read emotions, they also remember a person based on the last emotion they felt from their last interaction. This is a useful strategy for horses to avoid any possible aggressive encounters.
4. The other horses
Humans aren't the only ones who can leave an indelible imprint on a horse! Horses can remember and recognise other horses from their social network. Whether it takes a few years or decades, one horse will never forget its relationship with another. This doesn't mean as much they will pair up with each other if they ever get together. One horse will only react to another if the bond they had was particularly strong. If he knows a horse from a previous encounter, he may treat it differently than others.
Other important bonds between horses, like the one that unites a mare and her foal, are known to last a lifetime. As horses also remember smells, this can help a mare recognize her baby, even years after separation.
5. The words
Horses are able to understand words much deeper than we thought, but not in the traditional sense we give words. They understand the words by tone, height and length of the voice. Words with fewer syllables tend to stick better to horses. They can tell when someone is insulting them and when someone is complimenting them. Don't underestimate their intelligence, because there's a good chance they're listening very attentively to every word you utter.
Horses are incredibly gifted animals, and should be treated as such! Having an idea of the memories horses hold with them forever will allow you to understand and communicate with them even more deeply. Whatever the experience, good or bad, you can be sure your horse has felt it fully. Do your best to give them a good memory, and they will surely do the same.·
Worming Pregnant Mares
Should I worm my pregnant mare?
Deworming pregnant mares is one protocol that most horse owners consider carefully before administering. In general, many are uncertain of the appropriate horse worming procedure to follow for expectant mares with safety usually a primary concern.
One of the most important things to remember when worming your pregnant mare is product selection. Most horse wormers available in Australia are safe to use on a pregnant mare throughout their pregnancy. However, you should check the label or product information prior to use as it will say whether it has been tested as safe for use in pregnant mares. No wormer should be given that hasn’t been tested and approved as safe during pregnancy. Read the label carefully and consult your veterinarian if you’re unsure.
What product to use:
Wormers that are available in Australia and advised by the manufacturer to be as safe for use in pregnant mares include (but not limited to):
- Equimax Elevation
- Equest Plus Tape Gel
- Imax Gold
- Promectin Plus
- Ammo and Strategy T
Ivermectin is a popular active ingredient in wormers used for different types of equine parasites and is also known to be a safe choice for pregnant mares. There are also other options considered to be safe for the expectant mares like fenbendazole. It is generally recommended to rotate wormers during pregnancy. For instance, a pregnant mare should be given fenbendazole during its third month of pregnancy, provided that your property has not developed any resistance to the drug. Followed with Ivermectin during the sixth to seventh month.
When should you worm:
When it comes to worming pregnant mares, they should be treated as normal throughout their pregnancy. They should be kept on a regular worming rotation (every 6-8 weeks or as per the recommendations on the wormer being used). You should try to worm them about 2 weeks prior to foaling and try to limit the stress involved during the process.
Deworming with Ivermectin can also be performed 24 hours after foaling to help prevent parasites from being passed on to the foal through its mother’s milk. You should then worm both the mare and foal again when the foal is about 6-8 weeks old.
Other tips to remember:
It is important to remember, no worming program is complete without proper pasture management and good husbandry. The strategies below can drastically reduce the number of parasites on your property and help safeguard your mare and foal from intestinal parasites:
- Remove manure from pasture at least twice per week
- Rest paddocks during hot, dry temperatures
- Avoid over-crowding pastures
- Ensure all horses are wormed correctly
- Integrate faecal egg counts into your worming. A faecal egg count prior to worming, followed by a faecal egg count after worming, can be integral in ensuring your worming program is efficient and effective.
