Owner banned after horse 'presumed drowned' in muddy field

A field

A woman has been banned from keeping horses for three years after one of her animals was found "presumed drowned" in a muddy field in Staffordshire.

Kyla Martin, of Rogers Street, Goldenhill, Stoke-on-Trent, admitted causing unnecessary suffering to her mare before Newcastle magistrates.

The county council said the horse, named Delta, had died after being left unsupervised in a waterlogged field.

Martin, 27, was fined £200 with costs of more than £1,330.

The horse when it was found

The council said the field in Talke had become so flooded earlier this year that its animal health officers had not been able to reach the horse for eight days.

A spokesperson said: "The horse was found underwater and our officers presumed she had drowned, although we can't say for certain."

Councillor Gill Heath, from the authority's trading standards department, said: "People who keep any animal have a duty to ensure they are well cared for and kept free from harm.

"The judge in this case recognised that a horse was left to suffer in totally unsuitable conditions."

Jack Kennedy's miraculous recovery to win

Jack Kennedy produced a remarkable recovery to win a Beginners Chase at Clonmel.

Kennedy was on board the Gordon Elliott-trained Robin Des Mana when the jockey erred at a fence, leaving him almost on the ground.

He managed to recover, taking several seconds to get back in position and went on to win by half a length at odds of 7/2.

Kennedy said: "I just got in underneath and it shot me out of the saddle. It was a little bit embarrassing that I got thrown out of the saddle so I said I better try my best to stay on him. I was turned backwards,

"I don't know how I stayed on to be honest. He stayed straight so that was a big help. It's a bit of blur but it worked out well."

Nearly 30 horses found burned to death in California fire

Amid the charred landscape of Little Tujunga Canyon Road in Sylmar on  were the remains of Rancho Padilla and the carcasses of nearly 30 horses that died in the fast-moving Creek fire.

The Padilla family was there Wednesday morning, surveying the smoldering ranch that their father built more than 20 years ago. They somberly counted up the dead horses, whose charred bodies lined dozens of stalls.

The fire was first reported at 3:43 a.m. Tuesday, and the family, which lives up the hill from the ranch, had awakened to flames. One fire crew came and told them to leave.

"All I could think about was the horses, the horses, the horses. And they were like, 'Get out, get out, get out,' " said Patricia Padilla, whose family owns the ranch. "The structures can get rebuilt, but the lives of the horses can't. ... That's my biggest heartbreak."

The ranch, which boards horses, had more than 60 housed there, said Virginia Padilla, Patricia's older sister. They put the count of dead horses at 29.

The family was familiar with each owner and would be calling them throughout the day to deliver the grim news and offer condolences.

On Wednesday morning, the smell of fire hung in the air and mixed with the odor of burned carcasses. Blackened horseshoes and traces of blood littered the stalls as a heavy silence blanketed the ranch. The stillness was broken only occasionally by the whinnies of a surviving horse and the crowing of a rooster.

Shelby Hope brought Oscar Martinez, a horse owner, and others up Wednesday morning to see whether the horses had survived and how she could help. She's been coming to the ranch for about five years, to attend rodeos and spend time with friends.

"It hurts a lot because these horses are family," Hope said as she stood near the bodies. "They're not just horses — they're horses that we know, that we've become close to."

"Do you remember the white horse we used to ride?" Martinez asked Hope, pointing out the charred remains of one animal.

Martinez walked past each stall, tears in his eyes, as he identified each body. There was Selena, a baby horse, and her mother — both badly burned.

Farther down, in stall 40, Martinez had boarded his horse, Chikilin. He had gotten a call from a friend at 5 a.m. Tuesday saying the ranch was burning.

By the time Martinez arrived, everything was on fire. Flames forced him to turn back, and he feared the worst — that his horse had died. Then he saw his friend running, leading Chikilin away from the ranch. "I was crying," Martinez recounted Wednesday.

There were memories everywhere for the Padilla family. The now-burned gazebo is where Patricia Padilla had celebrated her 25th birthday this past Saturday. Farther up stood the arena where they would hold events, including the one planned for this Sunday for the Virgin of Guadalupe. They had invited horse owners to come for free food, a Mass and to ride.

The family has had the ranch for 26 years and has seen the mountains around them catch fire before.

"We've always had fires, and it's always been one of those things like, 'We'll be OK,' " Virginia said.

"I guess it was just," she trailed off, struggling to find the words. "We weren't."

One of her horses is in the hospital, and another, along with her sister's horse, Scar, is doing fine. Still, they felt for their boarders and the horses they'd lost. As Patricia saw the numerous horses that had perished, she remembered the boarders riding the animals and coming for relaxation.

Her father built the ranch mainly for his children because they do equestrian sports, Patricia said.

"Honestly, it feels like we lost a big part of our family," she said. "To see it all gone ... it's heartbreaking."

As the Padilla family took stock of the loss, Hope, 20, helped however she could, loading a trailer she'd brought with a horse and a donkey that had survived.

She planned to return to help take a pony out.

Running her hand, a horseshoe ring on her finger, through the pony's mane, she said, "You made it buddy."

"The man at the council offices in the Isle of Wight said that if they stopped adopting/resurfacing bridle paths, the council would need to close down that department" - Tony Barnett

BEVA's MumsVet introduces guidance resources for employers 

BEVA's MumsVet introduces guidance resources for employers

MumsVet, the British Equine Veterinary Association's (BEVA) online support platform for equine veterinary professionals juggling work and parenthood, has introduced important guidance resources for employers with pregnant staff.

The BEVA Checklist for Employers with Pregnant Staff and the Risk Assessment form for New and Expectant Mothers are available as downloads for all working in the veterinary profession.

Working as an equine veterinary professional poses significant health and safety risks, not least for new or expectant mothers. Vicki Nicholls, co-founder of MumsVet, member of the postgraduate unit at the University of Liverpool Equine Hospital and former President of BEVA explains: "The nature of equine work presents different challenges for pregnant women and working parents. 

Lone working, often out of hours in potentially dangerous environments with unpredictable patients, and the paucity of trained support staff in an ambulatory setting are specific challenges to equine vets both male and female. Add pregnancy into the mix and the challenges suddenly increase even further."

The new BEVA Checklist for Employers with Pregnant Staff provides key information to help support employers and highlight best practice. It covers the appropriate steps to take as well as the legal requirements when an employee announces she is pregnant, what to do during the pregnancy, through maternity leave and on return to work. The Risk Assessment for New and Expectant Mothers provides some examples of the main hazards likely to be encountered by equine vets, their associated risks and the appropriate control measures.

Lucy Grieve, co-founder of MumsVet, ambulatory vet at Rossdales, Newmarket and member of BEVA Council said: "Used in conjunction with each other our two new resources will help to guide and reassure employers that they are taking the correct steps and will ensure that the entire team has been taken into consideration –and not just the pregnant person. New and expectant mothers working in the right conditions within a safe environment will have added incentive to return to work after maternity leave, and importantly this will help retain the experience we need in the profession."

MumsVet is a one-stop shop for information and support for veterinary employees (and employers) who are also mums or dads facing questions posed by pregnancy, parental leave and returning to work as a parent in equine practice. Through a series of interactive blogs, podcasts, real life stories, career guidance, educational articles and thought-provoking social media posts MumsVet provides guidance for realistic expectations, resources for difficult situations, and support and reassurance for practices and parents to combine work and family.

World Horse Welfare's Annual Conference Debate 'Invisible Horses of the Future' 

World Horse Welfare Conference 2017

Charity World Horse Welfare's 2017 Annual Conference (30th November 2017) will feature a series of speakers from across the equestrian, veterinary, academic and business sectors who will discuss and debate the intransigent and emerging  welfare challenges facing the global equine population.

As World Horse Welfare marks its 90th anniversary this year, the conference will take learnings from the past whilst looking ahead at how best people can help protect the world's invisible horses from the welfare challenges they are currently facing or will be faced with in future years.

World Horse Welfare President, HRH The Princess Royal, will open the day's proceedings by outlining the importance of having a practical voice to promote lasting changes for the global equine population in the context of the ever changing horse-human relationship.

Stream the World Horse Welfare Conference

Other speakers will include entrepreneur, businesswoman and Dragon's Den star, Deborah Meaden, who will give the UK perspective on the invisible horses of the future – drawing on experiences from a day spent with World Horse Welfare Field Officer, Jeff Herrington, and through her various links with horses and the wider sector. Veterinary Professor Brian Perry OBE will discuss the welfare challenges presented by the rise in demand for equine derived products such as donkey skins, whilst animal welfare scientist and ethologist Michael Appleby OBE will discuss the importance of recognising working equids' link with human livelihoods. Career digital marketer and entrepreneur, Sam Tolhurst, will present on lessons learned by business about social media and the opportunities and threats it brings for organisastions like World Horse Welfare

A discussion panel chaired by Sky News Sports Editor Nick Powell and including Olympic gold medallist eventer Sir Mark Todd CBE, Vice President of the RCVS Chris Tufnell, Kate Hoey MP and World Horse Welfare Chief Field Officer, Claire Gordon, will debate the meaning of responsible equine ownership from birth to death.

World Horse Welfare Chief Executive, Roly Owers, said:

"Our 2017 conference builds on our 2016 theme of the 'Invisible Horse' – those who suffer in silence because people cannot or choose not to see them - and will mark a milestone in our 90 year history as we discuss and debate what the future has in store for our equine population.

"We are delighted to have such a wide range of influential speakers from across the business, equestrian, academic and political worlds who can all provide a unique perspective on a shared goal of how best we can help provide for the invisible horses of the future."

VET IDENTIFIES 24 WAYS OF TELLING IF YOUR HORSE IS IN PAIN

VET IDENTIFIES 24 WAYS OF TELLING IF YOUR HORSE IS IN PAIN

Leading veterinary research charity the Animal Health Trust (AHT) is celebrating the anniversary of one of their most valued members of staff, Dr Sue Dyson, with the release of her latest results of her eagerly awaited facial expressions and behaviour study.

As Head of Clinical Orthopaedics at the AHT, Sue has dedicated 35 years to treating hundreds of patients each year in the clinic, as well as advancing the knowledge and techniques in equine medicine through her pioneering research. Sue's aim is always to improve a horse's quality of life, whether that be returning to their previous level of competition, or being able to live pain-free. With a strong background as a rider and a particular interest in lameness and poor performance in sports horses, she has an in-depth knowledge and understanding of performance problems in horses of all disciplines. This gives Sue a distinct advantage when patients are referred to her, as she can fully understand the needs of the horse and rider, and all of the complexities involved within that partnership.

Sue continues to change the face of equine medicine 35 years on, most recently increasing our understanding of pain in our equine athletes. Sue is currently creating a method by which owners, trainers and equine professionals can recognise pain in their horses when they are ridden by assessment of facial expression and behaviour. This study evolved from Sue's extensive clinical work, recognising that too often poor performance has been labelled as 'naughty' behaviour or training problems, rather than pain. As a result, cases are referred to her too late when injuries have become chronic, so problems are well developed and the opportunity for recovery is compromised. The third of four stages in this project has been completed; developing a visual aid for identifying pain and/or lameness by assessing the horse as a whole, building on the success of facial expressions being a proven indicator. In addition to facial expressions, behavioural markers of pain included head tossing, unwillingness to go forwards, hurrying, toe dragging, crookedness, changing gaits spontaneously, and stumbling. Lame horses had substantially higher behavioural scores than non-lame horses.

Twenty-four key behavioural markers were identified and the presence of eight or more was likely to signify musculoskeletal pain. It was considered important to assess horses both in trot and canter, because some horses show more signs reflecting discomfort in one gait compared with the other.  It was equally important to assess horses performing movements requiring more collection, when applicable, because it may only be when more physical demands are placed upon the horse that signs reflecting pain become apparent. Being able to detect pain as early as possible using this visual guide and scoring system enables quick reactions, so that whatever is causing the horse pain (tack or injury) can be rectified, which greatly increases the horse's chances of a successful outcome.

Sue continues to investigate equine health and welfare, inspired by the resilience of equine athletes; she still works tirelessly to improve their care for years to come, sharing her knowledge with the equine industry and owners to put into practice. "I owe a huge debt of gratitude, not only to the friends and colleagues I've had the privilege to work with, most particularly at the AHT, but also to the horses, which provide endless challenges" says Sue. "Our clinical cases are integral to our research. Without them and the willingness of their owners to contribute their data to our research projects, we would not be able to advance veterinary techniques as comprehensively as we do now. At the AHT we have developed a cycle, whereby our clinical patients feed into our research, and in turn our research results are fed back into the industry to develop veterinary and owner knowledge to support the care of horses worldwide.

"I have always had a thirst for new knowledge and quickly learnt that by documenting my clinical observations, certain patterns emerged which could be translated into recognising new conditions. I didn't think of this as research – just learning on the job. There are many unanswered questions when it comes to horses, and the learning process proceeds endlessly – and excitingly!"

Stage 3 of the study is available for FREE until 12 January:

Horseytalk - Product of the Week

Animalintex to the Rescue †

Animalintex to the Rescue

Animalintex® is a key product that is always well-stocked in Sue Knapman's first aid kit, after it has come to the rescue of her horse, Ben many times over the 17 years she has owned him.

A part-bred Arab, Ben is kept on DIY livery 10 minutes from Sue's home in Penzance, Cornwall. In their more active days together, the pair have enjoyed competing in Endurance, Le Trec and Showing, but are now enjoying the quieter life taking part in fun rides.

At 25-years-old, Ben is still full of life having fought back from a serious injury in 2015 when he severely ruptured his superficial tendon. He was gradually brought back to fitness following almost a year on box rest. During this time Sue used Veterinary Gamgee® on both front legs to provide support. A layer of cotton wool was placed on top of the Gamgee® before bandaging to avoid pressure sores.

Animalintex to the Rescue

Ben has had his fair share of injuries over the years, and is especially susceptible to mud fever in the winter months. Sue has always used Animalintex® as its kills the bacteria, and keeps the area clean and dry, which gets Ben on the mend faster.

The latest injury Ben sustained was after a nasty bout of colic that had the vet in attendance on numerous occasions in one week. Later in the week a horrendous abscess burst on his coronary band, and the vet recommended that Sue used Animalintex® to poultice the hoof to help draw out the infection and keep the area clean. Changing the poultice every 12 hours, the abscess was soon on the mend thanks to Animalintex®.

Animalintex® from Robinson Animal Healthcare is a world renowned, multi layered poultice and wound dressing. It is the only veterinary licensed poultice dressing on the market in the UK approved for the treatment of equine and canine wounds.

Animalintex to the Rescue

Sue commented "I really can't recommend the whole range of products from Robinson Animal Healthcare enough. It is a brand that you can really place your trust in."
