“MY HORSE IS CARB SENSITIVE, ISN’T HE?…”  Cushings, PPID, Insulin Resistance, “Easy Keepers”, etc and NUTRITION.  How to help your Carb Sensitive horse!

Mama Tess was IR, Cushings and a bunch of other things that made her very sensitive to Carbohydrates.  I was constantly monitoring her food so that nothing would aggravate her condition.

I WATCHED THIS WEBINAR ABOUT CARB SENSITIVITY – NO AFFILIATION!

So, I was asked by Standlee Nutrition if I wanted to join a seminar on carb sensitivity in horses.

Well, I’m not a great fan of webinars – sitting in front of my computer for an hour, trying not to be distracted –  but I knew that I should, so I could learn as much as possible about these conditions.  I’m sure Gwen (MT’s first foal) will develop some sort of sugar issues as she advances in age… and Dodger already has Cushings.  I figured it would be good for me to watch.

So I did!

And… I was surprised.  The information wasn’t just an overview, it went into detail about all the different diseases associated with carb intake, NSC, how grass is grown for hay, ways to test for sugars, methods of reducing sugars, physical signs of horses in the danger zone… I thought it was informative, easy to understand and worth the time spent.

So, I asked if I could share the webinar with you… and they told me that they had just uploaded it to their website.

Yay!  You all can benefit!

*The Equine Carb Sensitivity video is on the Standlee website, but the video doesn’t push their feed or direct you to their site with offers and coupons.  In fact, much to my dismay, Standlee doesn’t produce a ‘low carb’ feed.  So, this webinar is not a sales pitch – it is education.

**Also, the website techs put up the actual video of the presentation instead of the Power Point within the video.  So, there you will have to listen to some webinar  ‘blah blah’ up front and here and there which doesn’t apply to someone watching after the fact…

But, all in all, a very nice overview of the issues associated with Equine Carb sensitivity.

I think it is very worth the time to watch if you have any suspicion – or if your horse is an ‘easy keeper’.

February Bucket Fund Receipt and an update on our February horse, Vulcan!






We had a very successful Bucket Fund drive for Vulcan last month!   We surpassed our goal of $2400!  This is good because Vulcan needs a lot of medical care and special groceries.  Thank you Thank you!

If you missed his story, you can read it here.

This is Vulcan’s intake photo. He was grossly underweight and had a horribly infected wound on his penis – he was found living in a junkyard full of sharp metal.

We have an update on Vulcan!

But first, the receipt!

Our receipt of payment for Vulcan’s surgery.

VULCAN UPDATE!

Vulcan has gained over 100 lbs!  The vet says he has put on enough weight to have his surgery.  So now everyone is organizing his trip to the equine hospital as well as his rehabilitation process.  Very exciting.

Vulcan has had a few baths now… and his feet done.  His teeth are next!

I know this is graphic to study, but his penis injury is healing very well!  The vets want to see how much it will heal on its own before surgery.  The less that has to be removed, the better.  He still cannot retract, and probably never will.  But, they are waiting for a few more days to make sure there are no further changes.

He looks so much brighter and alert!

Vulcan is allowed to roam the farm and eat whatever he wants… a very pampered life. I am told he is very respectful and a perfect angel while outside of his paddock.

The wound is so much better! But, the damage was done long ago. he will still need surgery so he can retract.

GREAT JOB, EVERYONE!
