Welcome to HorseHints. It is my hope that this site will become one of your favorite informational horse sites! Please share HorseHints with your friends, too. The following are categories that I hope will be of interest to you. The main topics are in alphabetical order to make it easier for you to browse. You can also use the google search. It searches for content on my site, only. The search is located in the upper right hand corner of this index page and another directly below the alphabetical category listing. It is a quick and easy way to find articles that pertain to the information for which you may be searching.

In the upper left hand corner of my home page, is my RSS Feed. Just log on and you will receive e-mail notifications of new articles added to HorseHints, as I research, write them and upload to HorseHints. Internet Explorer 7, Outlook 2007 and newer versions of FireFox have built-in Feed readers. Outlook Express version 6 does not have a Feed reader, but there are a number of Feed readers and feed reading plug-ins available on the Internet. For a free stand alone reader try this one from FeedReader.com Vista comes with a new e-mail system called Windows Mail. I assume that will read RSS but I do not know for sure.

The average horse produces nearly nine tons of manure a year!

"What's happening (in a gassy horse) is whatever feed is getting to the colon (is producing) a substantial amount of gas. Generally when gas is produced it is because feed is being digested rapidly and the bacterial population in the gut has shifted. Gas is a byproduct of that, so it's really all about the 'bugs' (inside the gut).
