What's Next For All American Champion "KJ"?

John and Kathy Lee, co-owners of All American Futurity champion KJ Despardo, were on their way home to their ranch in Chandler, Arizona today.

Nutrition For Horses Without Pasture

Nutrition For Horses Without Pasture

Not all horses have the luxury of spending time on green pasture, head down, grazing to their heart’s content.

Yet, the healthiest strategy for equine gastrointestinal health is the ability to eat small amounts at intermittent intervals throughout the day.

Clostridial Myositis - Following Injections and Precautions for Banamine Injections

Intramuscular injections occasionally cause local abscesses if the needle or skin is dirty when the injection is given. Sometimes, abscesses occur even with very clean conditions. The worst kind of injection-induced infection is called clostridial myositis, or myonecrosis.

Placentia Previa or ‘Red Bag’ Foaling

Most equine births are accomplished with no problems. The mare goes into active labor, breaks her water, lies down and almost immediately, the foal’s front feet appear, followed by his nose and head. With a few forceful contractions, the mare delivers the foal and the second stage of labor is complete. Occasionally, however, there are problems that hinder the progression, resulting in a life-threatening emergency.
