Guest blog Puur - Hormones

Many horse owners complain about cranky mares, during heat cycles. One mare may hardly change when she comes into heat, another one becomes unpredictable, hard to handle or unfocused. A common complaint is that pain signals are also noticeable when touching or brushing / touching the belly. I always listened patiently, but because I only had geldings, I didn't know what people were talking about. Until I got my current horse, a mare. Like a true Cruella she chased our little spotted Appaloosa, as if it was a Dalmatian pup, wanting to make a fur coat out of him. Luckily he is much younger and faster, and now he seems to know better how to deal with her "moods". But there is actually more that can be done to help your horse and make it less moody during this season cycles.

Puur - Mud Fever

The equine immune system is a complex system, during the fall the immune system is at risk of pathogens disturbing your horse’s health. The immune system is often compromised in the fall due to the shedding of the coat, the seasonal influences as well as the stress of spending more time in the stables. Wet weather enters the equation and your horse ends up spending more time on muddy soil. Its legs are exposed to a combination of mud, rain and urine which may result in mud fever. Horses with feathering are at increased risk of getting mud fever due to the scalding effect under all those hairs. However, don’t be fooled by the name mud fever as it is not confined to the fall; some horses get mud fever during summertime: a combination of feed containing irritants and dry, sunny days may result in mud fever as well. White legs tend to be more sensitive to mud fever.
