The purpose of this study was to evaluate if there is a relationship between a glycemic response test and the incidence of osteochodritis dissecans (OCD) in Thoroughbred weanlings, and to determine if this test would be useful in identifying factors that may predispose young growing horses to OCD.
This study examined body size and selling price of yearlings and compared these with results from a study of yearling size and future racing performance.
Three experiments were conducted to evaluate if feeding hay with and without grain affects glycemic response and hematological responses in Thoroughbred horses at rest and during a simulated competition exercise.
The purpose of this exercise trial was to determine the effects of four diets varying in starch and fat content on blood glucose and insulin concentrations as well as on indicators of exercise-induced muscle strain and damage in horses with polysaccharide storage myopathy.
Buyers look at various factors--pedigree, conformation, and racing performance of siblings--when considering the purchase of a Thoroughbred yearling. This study was conducted to find out the influence of body size and condition score on sale price.
To explore the skeletal adaptations involved in early race training, bone density and morphometry were tracked in 15 Thoroughbred yearlings as they began training at a facility where turnout paddocks were available.
This study was designed to determine if gastric emptying is delayed following ingestion of a grain and corn oil meal compared to a meal of grain alone.
This study was designed to examine whether short-term adaptation to a high-fat diet would affect insulin sensitivity in aged horses.
The objective of this study was twofold: to measure the starch content of rice bran, whole oats, and corn, and to determine the glycemic response to a meal of rice bran in Thoroughbred horses.
This experiment was designed to test whether chronic administration of sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim (SMZ) affects digestibility in mature horses.
