Horse Supplements could help provide your horse with its needed calcium. Due to the huge amount of Ca in bones, they make a great storage spot for Ca in the horse’s body. Even so, because they are the primary storage area, Ca is also readily taken from bone tissue when there’s a dietary deficiency. As a result, extended Ca insufficiency can result in fragile bone tissues within the equine. Ca insufficiency can also result in a moving lameness within animals. In growing horses, Ca deficiency could have severe consequences. Insufficiency often results in problems with growing bone tissues, resulting in diseases such as osteopenia, which is described as crooked long bones and swollen joints.
Ladies jodhpurs, or riding pants that go to the ankle, have metamorphosed from drab functionalism into high fashion. Designer jodhpurs are advertised online just like dresses and shoes, with the name telling you all you need to know. Once as strictly functional and conventional as a uniform, these riding pants can now be colored like the rainbow and sexy as short shorts.
Horses have a lot of hair during the winter months, if they are allowed to grow it. All that hair has an important purpose– to prevent your horse from getting cold and sick during the winter. But since humans have intervened and many horses are clipped or not allowed to grow their winter coats, some of them need turnout rugs.
Seattle Slew, horse racing’s lone remaining living Triple Crown winner, passed away on May 7, 2002 at the age of 28. Already ranked among the all time greats by virtue of this accomplishment alone, Slew is even more notable as the only Triple Crown winner to go undefeated as a three year hold. He came from humble beginnings, bought at public auction–the only Triple Crown winner to be acquired in this manner. After retiring to stud in’78 he remained a very profitable horse based on a stud fee of $300,000. His offspring earned over $76 million dollars at the race track and include over 100 stakes race winners including’84 Kentucky Derby champion Swale.
