Feeding the Broodmare and Nursing Foal brought to you by HyGain Feeds

August 2018

Mare owners spend thousands of dollars on stud fees and shell out hundreds of dollars in veterinary care to prepare their mares for breeding and foaling. Mares are expected to produce enough milk for a foal for up to six months. Many mares are expected to raise healthy foals year after year, requiring successful rebreeding while the previous year’s foal is still by her side. Because nutrition influences each stage of the broodmare’s production cycle, nutritional management may, in many ways, determine the success of the breeding program.

Feeding for Topline and Condition, brought to you by Stance Equine

September 2012

Dr Tim Kempton from Stance Equine explains how condition is measured using a 9 point score from poor/emaciated = 1,  through to extremely fat or obese = 9. The upper curvature of a horse’s withers, back, and loin is called the "topline." Pertinent points Both condition and topline are determined to large extent by a combination of muscle and fat to put on weight.  Sports horses conditioned for endurance and racing generally have little fat on the topline.

Feeding on the trail, brought to you by Stance Equine

July 2012

The attraction of trail riding is to ride through remote and natural landscape, which in most cases is National Parks and State Forests. For the adventurous riders who head-out on extended trails, there is often insufficient herbage along the trails to provide the nutrients required to maintain bodyweight, and allow the horse to perform the work required. Dr Tim Kempton, Stance Equine. Therefore, it is necessary to pack in supplementary feed, or arrange feed drops. Key issues for selecting suitable feeds include: 1. Energy density.

NSC... Why is it important? Brought to you by Stance Equine

May 2011

Dr Tim Kempton, Stance Equine.  All feeds contain carbohydrates. Carbohydrates include the fibre, and sugars and starch. The fibres are the STRUCTURAL CARBOHYDRATES that hold the plant up. These fibres are both digestible or indigestible. Look at your horse’s manure. Take some and wash it in a bucket. What you see is the indigestible fibre from the feed. Horse’s manure is drier than cattle because they do not digest fibre as well as cattle, and because they absorb more water from the hindgut.
