Feeding and Behavior
A horse's body and mind cannot be separated. Physical health - or lack of it - is manifested in susceptibility to illness and infection, proper weight maintenance, and hair and hoof quality, but also in behaviors. Short attention span, spookiness, reluctance to work - these can be normal personality traits, or they can be outward signs of illness, pain or nutritional deficiencies.
The seminar will cover key nutrients as well as the overall diet needed for horses to become their natural selves. "The horse's good health makes interacting and working with him more joyful and gratifying," says Dr. Getty. "And proper nutritional practices are fundamental to assuring the horse's health and behavior."
The teleseminar emphasizes:
- Feeding the way nature intended
- Hormonal responses
- Equine digestive physiology
- Stress response
- Digestive tract motility in response to various nutrients
- Immune system and behavioral responses
- Sugar and starch on hormonal levels
- Effect of increasing fat
- Protein's effect on blood glucose
- Are all grains the same?
- Key minerals
- B vitamins
- Calming supplements
Dr. Getty spends an hour covering all of the above teleseminar topics, while answering the pre-submitted questions. As she goes through each question, additional information is interspersed so every participant can benefit from the answer. At the end of the hour, additional questions are taken from the floor.
"God Bless you for helping owners understand that their horses' bad behavior is very probably not their choosing, but due to the fact that they are not being fed like a horse. My horse was hated for being dangerous and unpredictable. Two years later, he is a new horse. I am CONVINCED he was so nutritionally depleted when I got him (and possibly his whole life until then) that even HE did not know who he was. He could not be more of a sweet, willing, loving, sociable, darling horse. It makes my heart sing to see how happy he is now, largely thanks to you. Thank you from all of us that love our horses but perhaps don't know exactly what that always means. I am your most loyal student." - Cristine, from Sedro Woolley, Washington
