Fun With Physics And Horses – Podcast #010

The Equine Practice Inc, The Horse's Advocate

Physics is a collection of laws that control how things work in this world. They have no allegiance to a country, religion or even if you are a plant, animal or mineral. Physics is the rule book by which we all play.

How the laws of physics apply to our horses is something that has intrigued me since about 1978 when I noticed that there were scientists looking at how these laws made our horses lame. I was hooked.

Long toe and low heels are a combination of physics that harms tendons and hooves. Here is another favorite: Force = mass times acceleration (the reason overweight horses break down). Both of these are at the root of most lamenesses in horses.

Come along and find out how physics will help you to keep your horses healthy.
