So the last couple of weeks I've been learning a lot more about horses and their hooves thanks to @growingcynical! Of course I did a lot of research on my own and in particulary on the low/high-heel syndrome. It's pretty common with horses, but every horse is different and experiences it in his own way.
Low/high-heel syndrom is when the horses heel have a difference in height. With Diva you can see that her right heel is higher than her left. @growingcynical explained to me that Diva favors her left side over her right side because of the way her hooves are. I've been going deeper in what L/H-heel syndrome actually means to the whole body of a horse and learned a lot! In the third picture you can see Diva's shoulder and that there is a difference in muscle. Her left muscle is bigger than her right and that is no coincidence. Her muscles match her hooves.
Watching Diva after that it became obvious she always grazed with her left leg in the front, but there was more. I tried watching her while moving and asking her to do the same things on her left side as on her ride side. On her left side it was all fine, but when I asked on her right side she refused and even went as far as to walk back and push me the other way; letting me know that she'd rather worked on the other side. It's clear that she's not comfortable stretching out her right side.
It should get a bit better in time if we work on getting her right side stronger, but while working on that there's something I've been hearing a lot. "It's common for horses." I've talked to people about L/H-heel syndrome and almost everyone came with that answer. Just because it's a common problem doesn't mean that we shouldn't do something about it! People tend to overlook that common is not the same as not hurting. It's common that people get sick, does that make the sick person feel fine? No, he still feels sick! There's been so much talking about horse abuse and whips and spurs. Even though a common problem like L/H-heel syndrome can do just as much damage. So watch your horse and if he rears or kicks when you do something, try to find out the problem instead of shoving it off onto 'stubornnes'! #horseinfo #diva

Unfortunately it is not possible to directly measure the amount of useful energy contained in feed as you can with other variables such as protein and minerals. This is primarily because all food calories are not the same; they differ chemically and these chemical differences affect the mechanism and efficiency of digestion and metabolism, and therefore health and performance. While there are several equations used to estimate DE, we still lack a good means of accurately and easily predicting the energy content of different feeds. There is no regulatory body suggesting equine feed manufactures use one particular method or equation. This can potentially be very misleading to the end user, making it virtually impossible to compare energy contents of feeds between different manufacturers. DE values should therefore not be relied upon when making decisions about what feed is right for your horse and should only be viewed as an estimate at best. #hygain #hygainfeeds #horsefeed #horsenutrition #horse #horses #horsesofinstagram #horsetips #healthyhorse #horseriding #horsey #horselove #horselife #horsebackriding #happyhorse #equestrian #horseinfo #nutrition #healthychoice #equine #equestrianlife #horsestagram #tipdaythursday #tmhmagazine #horselove

Although energy is supplied to the horse via its diet, fundamentally it is not a nutrient but rather the capacity to do work. Food energy comprises the potential chemical energy of carbohydrates (including sugars, starches and fibres), fats and proteins. Part of it can be converted to other body chemicals and mechanical work (useable energy), with the remainder lost as waste energy (mainly in the form of faeces, urine and heat). #hygain #hygainfeeds #horsefeed #horsenutrition #horse #horses #horsesofinstagram #horsetips #healthyhorse #horseriding #horsey #horselove #horselife #horsebackriding #happyhorse #equestrian #horseinfo #nutrition #healthychoice #equine #equestrianlife #horsestagram #horses_of_instagram #equineenergy #equinedigestibleenergy Link in bio.

A mare’s immune status is also a very significant factor affecting the quality of colostrum. Colostrum is the ‘first milk’ that is produced during the last month of gestation and is vital for the establishment of a foal’s immune system. The quality of colostrum, in terms of its immunoglobulin content, is very much dependent upon a mare having overall good immune status. This in turn is believed to be influenced by adequate dietary selenium intake, as diets that were deficient in selenium were found to negatively affect the immunity of ponies. The positive effect of selenium supplementation on selenium status in both mares and their foals is additionally dependent on the selenium source. #hygain #hygainfeeds #horsefeed #horsenutrition #horse #horses #horsesofinstagram #horsetips #healthyhorse #horseriding #horsey #horselove #horselife #horsebackriding #happyhorse #equestrian #horseinfo #nutrition #healthychoice #equine #equestrianlife #horsestagram #horses_of_instagram #selenium #equinereproduction Link in bio.

The lactating mare has the highest nutrient requirements of any horse on the farm. To produce milk and to repair the reproductive tract in preparation for future pregnancy, the mare requires substantial amounts of energy, protein, calcium and phosphorus. To maintain both adequate milk production and body condition, lactating mares will often need to be fed substantial amounts of grain and high quality forage. Without adequate energy (calorie) intake, mares will lose body weight and may have problems conceiving. The most common feeding mistake made with lactating mares is to underfeed them. Careful management is necessary in this class of mares because individual requirements will vary greatly. A foal can quickly lower condition in the mare, and lactating mares in thin condition may take longer to rebreed and have lower pregnancy rates than mares in a moderate to fleshy condition. #hygain #hygainfeeds #horsefeed #horsenutrition #horse #horses #horsesofinstagram #horsetips #healthyhorse #horseriding #horsey #horselove #horselife #horsebackriding #happyhorse #equestrian #horseinfo #nutrition #healthychoice #equine #equestrianlife #horsestagram #horses_of_instagram #equinereproduction #equinelactation #equinepregnancy Link in bio.

Perhaps the most recognised effect of selenium deficiency in foals is the development of white muscle disease. White muscle disease is a form of muscle dysfunction, or myopathy, which results: in weakness and impaired movement; difficulty in suckling; and compromised heart function. The selenium status of the foal is affected by the selenium intake of the mare as selenium can be transferred from mare to foal, both through the placenta and in milk. #hygain #hygainfeeds #horsefeed #horsenutrition #horse #horses #horsesofinstagram #horsetips #healthyhorse #horseriding #horsey #horselove #horselife #horsebackriding #happyhorse #equestrian #horseinfo #nutrition #healthychoice #equine #equestrianlife #horsestagram #horses_of_instagram #equinereproduction #seleniumdefficiency #equineselenium Link in bio.

The effect of nutrition and body condition on reproduction in mares has been clearly illustrated. Mares coming into the breeding season in optimal body condition start cycling earlier than mares with in poor body condition. Thinner mares also have difficulty conceiving and maintaining pregnancy as compared to mares in optimal body condition. Some obese mares continue to cycle throughout the winter when typically reproductive cycling is shut down. However, obesity has been associated in horses have been associated with decreased reproductive function in mares. Obese mares can have a longer interval between ovulations which can be due to a persistent corpus luteum. This makes the obese mare more difficult to rebreed if an initial breeding is not successful increasing the cost incurred to the owner. #hygain #hygainfeeds #horsefeed #horsenutrition #horse #horses #horsesofinstagram #horsetips #healthyhorse #horseriding #horsey #horselove #horselife #horsebackriding #happyhorse #equestrian #horseinfo #nutrition #healthychoice #equine #equestrianlife #horsestagram #horses_of_instagram #equinebreeding #broodmare #equinebodyconditonscore Link in bio.

Body fat reserves are important to the overall health of a horse because fat represents energy reserves that can be used during periods of stress. An optimum score has been described as a 5 (on a scale of 1-9). This horse has some fat but has not yet reached the fleshy point. A horse below a 5 may have fat stores too low to maintain a healthy status if stressed. Does your horse have too little, too much or just the right amount of fat stores? #hygain #hygainfeeds #horsefeed #horsenutrition #horse #horses #horsesofinstagram #horsetips #healthyhorse #horseriding #horsey #horselove #horselife #horsebackriding #happyhorse #equestrian #horseinfo #nutrition #healthychoice #equine #equestrianlife #horsestagram #horses_of_instagram #equinebodyconditonscore #equinebodyfat Link in bio.

A healthy foal will grow rapidly, gaining in height, weight and strength almost before your eyes. From birth to age two, a young horse can achieve 90 percent or more of its full adult size, sometimes putting on as much as 1.5kg per day. Feeding young horses is a balancing act, as the nutritional start a foal gets can have a profound effect on its health and soundness for the rest of its life. As the foal’s dietary requirements shift from milk to feed and forage, your role in providing adequate nutrition is vital. #hygain #hygainfeeds #horsefeed #horsenutrition #horse #horses #horsesofinstagram #horsetips #healthyhorse #horseriding #horsey #horselove #horselife #horsebackriding #happyhorse #equestrian #horseinfo #nutrition #healthychoice #equine #equestrianlife #horsestagram #horses_of_instagram #younghorsehealth #growinghorses Link in bio.

The actual body condition of a horse can also affect its reproductive capability, performance ability, and health status. Therefore, it is important to achieve and maintain proper body condition. In order to do this, one must evaluate body fat in relationship to body musculature. #hygain #hygainfeeds #horsefeed #horsenutrition #horse #horses #horsesofinstagram #horsetips #healthyhorse #horseriding #horsey #horselove #horselife #horsebackriding #happyhorse #equestrian #horseinfo #nutrition #healthychoice #equine #equestrianlife #horsestagram #horses_of_instagram #equinebodyconditon #bodyconditonscore Link in bio.

Using a numeric scoring system from 1 to 9, we can estimate the horse’s body energy reserves. This information can be used when deciding on the right feed choice. Body condition scoring involves the palpation and visual assessment of the degree of fat deposits of various areas of the horse, such as: over the ribs, tail head area, neck and withers, and behind the shoulders. Regular condition scoring of your horse will help in deciding if your horse needs to gain, lose or just maintain weight.

Consider adding about 15 grams of salt per 250 kg of your horse’s body weight to their ration everyday. While sodium and chloride are both added to commercial feeds to help meet requirements and aid in palatability the amounts may not be enough to meet daily needs especially in working horses. Therefore the best practice is to insure a supplemental source. #hygain #hygainfeeds #horsefeed #horsenutrition #horse #horses #horsesofinstagram #horsetips #healthyhorse #horseriding #horsey #horselove #horselife #horsebackriding #happyhorse #equestrian #horseinfo #nutrition #healthychoice #equine #equestrianlife #horsestagram #horses_of_instagram #saltforhorses #equinesalt #equinesodiumrequirements Link in bio.

Regular table salt or sodium chloride is approximately 61 percent chloride and 39 percent sodium. Feeding 30 grams of salt a day will provide 11.7 grams of sodium enough to meet the maintenance needs of a 500 kg horse.
Adding salt to your horse's diet is critically important for health and performance. #hygain #hygainfeeds #horsefeed #horsenutrition #horse #horses #horsesofinstagram #horsetips #healthyhorse #horseriding #horsey #horselove #horselife #horsebackriding #happyhorse #equestrian #horseinfo #nutrition #healthychoice #equine #equestrianlife #horsestagram #horses_of_instagram #salt #saltforhorses Link in bio.

Rather than rely strictly on age to determine if a horse is a “senior”, it is more important to determine if the horse is “nutritionally senior.” A horse that is “nutritionally senior” can no longer eat its same diet and maintain proper body condition. The combination of: age, physiological status and physical signs of aging will determine if a horse is “nutritionally senior.” Some common physical signs of aging that require nutrition management are loss of weight and decrease in body condition, loss of muscle mass over the top line, sway backed appearance, decrease in coat and hoof quality and dental problems. Some senior horses also develop diseases such as Metabolic Syndrome, Cushing Disease, degenerative joint disease and kidney or liver disfunction. #hygain #hygainfeeds #horsefeed #horsenutrition #horse #horses #horsesofinstagram #horsetips #healthyhorse #horseriding #horsey #horselove #horselife #horsebackriding #happyhorse #equestrian #horseinfo #nutrition #healthychoice #equine #equestrianlife #horsestagram #horses_of_instagram #seniorhorse #hygainequinesenior #hygaintrucare Link in bio.
