I attended three equine seminars, all with veterinarians discussing different matters:
- “How Horses Think,” by Cornell University (not the vet school)
- “Laminitis Rounds” put on by the American Association of Equine Practitioners
- “Fiber intake, Fermentation and Dental Condition,” by the European Equine Health and Nutrition Congress.
I also listened to a podcast from Purina called “Mythbusters.”
This podcast presents my summaries of these events. I was disappointed, and I will tell you why.
In a world filled with misleading, agenda-driven, and siloed information, horse owners may become confused about what they need to know. The experts in these presentations are real experts with credentials and strong beliefs. However, when I listen to their presentations, I come up with more unanswered questions than answers.
But I do find some gems too. I will give you my reasons as I continue to show all horse owners that there are many sides to a coin.
