Frequency of feed influences stomach ulcers in trained young horses
As we know, training intensities and durations contribute significantly to the risks of stomach sore. Prolonged intervals between mealtimes also increases a horse's chances of stomach ulcers progress. However, what happens if you compared the results of a joint two-day timetable with much more frequently fed animals in the stud-horses?
The aim of Luke Bass, DVM, MS, Dipl. ABVP, and his College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences at Colorado State University (CSU), Fort Collins, was to assess the impact of two feed policies on the stomach ulcer, horse mass and horse state. Horses have a naturally grazed look in which they feed for many lessons a year.
Many top horses, however, are kept in stables and use concentrated fodder to cover the higher calorie requirements during exercise and competitions. They are co-responsible for the elevated risk of peptic ulcer and colics in this horse group. In a random assignment, the research group gave 31 2-year-old quarter horses that are fed twice per diurnal with their cereals ( "4. 6 lbs Purina Ultium") - a diet plan that reproduces that of many US top horses (15 horses) or in 20 identical diets with an automatic 16 horse imeeder.
The horses also got 2% of their daily weights as pasture-yay. The horses were kept on drumots and managed with a horse horseman before the trial, but not trained. At no time in the trial did the research show a significant change in the physical fitness and importance of the two groups.
Up to day 55 there was no significant distinction between the groups, but the horses fed twice a day with corn still had higher mean leg ulcers. In line with other research, the recurrence of squamous cell carcinoma (the top part of the stomach) was higher than the recurrence of adenomas. It was interesting that the discrepancies in the grades of the groups on day 55 were no longer significant, Bass said.
This was perhaps because by day 55 these young horses had become accustomed to the stresses of new accommodation, leadership and lifestyles. Unfortunately, it is not possible to carry out the survey over a longer time frame, as all horses should be offered for purchase at the university when selling Legend of Lanching.
