Motivational makeover I had to write and thank Christine Davis for sharing her story in “Murphy’s Makeover” (True Tales, EQUUS 493). I could relate to how she loves the athleticism and work ethic of Thoroughbreds. They are the breed that has captured my heart as well. Her story is very inspiring and encouraging for anyone who wants to get an off-the-track Thoroughbred and train him to be something other than a racehorse. From what I’ve heard, the Thoroughbred Makeover is a place where people are encouraging and supportive of each other, much more so than your “average” horse show where often the main goal is to win. I hope to go next year as a spectator, although I am looking to buy another off-the-track Thoroughbred. So who knows, I may end up…

“Rain was dissolving land and sky together like a wet watercolour as the afternoon darkened. He concentrated, raising his head, searching the skyline from end to end. The horse had vanished. The hill looked lifeless and desolate, an island lifting out of the sea, awash with every tide.”-Ted Hughes, “The Rain Horse” The ultra-lightweight High Tail Rain Jacket (suggested retail, $129), from Kerrits, is both water-resistant and windproof, with a convertible split tail that flips up and secures with magnets when riding.

WHEN TO WORRY ABOUT FEVER One of the first things to do when you suspect your horse isn’t feeling well is take his temperature. An elevated body temperature, commonly called a “fever,” can be an early indication of viral or bacterial infection. Normal body temperature for horses can range between 98 and 100 degrees. Some horses naturally run hotter than others, but individuals tend to be fairly consistent day to day. That’s why it’s helpful to get a baseline for your horse’s temperature when he is healthy. If you don’t already, make it a habit to take his temperature once or twice a month, just to keep tabs on his normal readings. A slightly elevated temperature—100 to 102 degrees Fahrenheit—may not be cause for concern if the horse otherwise looks healthy and behaves…

THE TEXTURE OF TROUBLE Q: Which of the following lumps on a horse’s leg is most likely to be the source of ongoing lameness? a. a cold, squishy lump on the outside of the fetlock joint b. a small, very firm bump on the inside of the cannon bone, a few inches below the knee c. a warm, soft lump along the back of the cannon bone For the answer, turn to page 19. POP QUIZ ANSWER c. A warm, soft swelling on the back of the cannon bone may be the result of a soft-tissue injury. If the injury was recent, the area will probably also be sensitive and the horse most likely is lame. A cold, squishy swelling on the outside of the fetlock joint is probably a windpuff, a harmless collection of fluid commonly found…
