Corrections to Horse Smarts content

We made every effort to review the content and proofread as we created the publication, however, we’ve spotted a few things that need to be corrected. Those corrections range from minor typos to changes in wording. We’re working on a web page to list all the corrections and date corrected but here are the most important corrections.

The Inside Story

Pg HS 325-3   change nose bot to throat bot in 2nd paragraph

Pg HS 325-23  change nose bot to throat bot on playing card

Tract to Success

Pg HS 405-2   Feeding Management Guidelines  (paragraph re-written)

Specific nutrient requirements for horses are determined based on their body weight and physiological status. In general, forage based diets and small frequent meals should be the foundation of all feeding programs to ensure digestive and overall health. Forage (pasture and/or hay) should account for a minimum of 1% of their body weight per day. For example, a 1,000 pound horse would require at least 10 pounds of forage per day.

Pg 405-5 and 405-12  A Weightier Problem activity calculate all forage at 1% of body weight
