That midnight snack might not make your tummy very happy… But then again, you’re not a horse. To maintain your horse’s digestive health and general welfare, you should consider trickle feeding your stabled horses during the night so as to better mimic natural foraging behaviours, according to an Irish researcher.

The Chilean Equine Veterinary Association (ACHVE) and the Chilean Veterinary College (COLMVET) have pledged support of the responsible use of nosebands in all equestrian disciplines. In their press release, they acknowledge the research that has found restrictive nosebands are associated with an activation of the physiological stress response, the presence
And…. They’re off! Or… are they? Actually, no. They’re still at the starting gate. Well, trying to get into the starting gate. Well, trying to resist getting encouraged/forced/shoved into the starting gate. Maybe it’s the jockeys who are off—on the ground after falling from racehorses who absolutely, positively Do. Not.
When it comes to understanding herd dynamics that help build happy pasture groups, it’s hard to beat 15 years of cumulative, ongoing research. And that’s exactly what Icelandic scientists have done. They’ve spent a decade and a half studying hundreds of horses living in different kinds of groups in spacious
