"The Hard Keeper can be Helped"

Recorded March 15, 2012. Length: 1 hour 23 minutes

The underweight horse can have just as much difficulty maintaining a normal weight as the overweight horse. If you have a Hard Keeper, you know that no matter what you try, your horse still has difficulty gaining weight and maintaining a healthy weight. Why is this? It could be simply due to a fast metabolic rate, or the weight loss reason may be far more complex than this. 

Don't be fooled into thinking that a ribby horse is okay. Seeing a glimmer of ribs while moving is fine, but if your horse's ribs are easily apparent just while standing still, he/she could benefit from a bit more tissue development.

The TeleSeminar emphasizes underweight as it relates to:

  • Medical issues that lead to weight loss
  • Helpful supplements
  • What is normal for your horse?
  • Aging
  • How to deal with a high metabolic rate
  • Malnutrition
  • Cushing's disease
  • Ulcers
  • Sand ingestion
  • Hyperlipemia
  • Stress
  • Attention to hindgut microbial population
  • Pre vs probiotics
  • Digestive enzymes
  • Understanding the importance of B vitamins
  • How to add more calories
  • Which fats? Which carbohydrates?
  • Seasonal weight concerns

  • Format:
