Q: My horse has chewed the bark off of the trees in his field and now he’s destroying the wood in his stall!
Why is he doing this?
For those of you whose horse are in the path of Hurricane Irma, and for any major barometric changes, please read this valuable information from Dr Jim Wright DVM.
"The great barometric changes, especially in storms like Irma, from my experience, seems to greatly increase colic problems. I can attest after not being able to travel in Andrew, so your veterinarian may not be able to get to you. I recommend withholding grain for at least 36 hours before and 48-72 hours after a hurricane BUT give the plenty of hay to help maintain good GI function and to browse on as a pacifier."
Please share and save a life.
"What inspired us about Candice is that she is the epitome of CareMore Nutrition’s ethos. She worked her way up, made the best of what she had, and really has an intuitive understanding of the needs of her horses—physical needs, mental needs, emotional needs—and she motivates them to be the best possible performers they can be."
