The trick is to keep your animal safe, healthy and happy into its senior years. The Council's Rotational Grazing, Paddock Management and Composting Farm Waste brochures provide information that can help make horse life a bit more enjoyable for you both. The Rutgers Equine Science Center (ESC) also offers downloadable educational tools for horse owners like Winter Feeding for Horses.
This year, the ESC is going interactive with a Spring Webinar Series, “Care and Management of the Older Horse.” Dr. Carey Williams, Extension Equine Specialist and Associate Director of the ESC, assembled two equine industry experts in their field to offer professional insight and perspectives. Both webinars begin at 7:00 pm EST and conclude at 8:00 pm.
This week, Dr. Michael Fugaro, Associate Professor at Centenary College and owner of Mountain Pointe Veterinary Services, presents “Orthopedic Problems in the Old Horse” on March 15th.
Next week, Dr. Karyn Malinowski, Director of the Rutgers Equine Science Center, presents “Overview of Older Horse Physiology” on March 22nd.
